Woman with Breast EnhancementAre your breasts smaller than you would like? Breast augmentation may be an excellent option for you. The surgery is among the treatments offered by Dr. Douglas Hegyi of Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer and Rochester, MI.

Is breast augmentation right for me?

Concerns about the appearance of your breasts can affect your self-esteem and may even make you feel less confident in social settings. Breast augmentation, the most popular type of cosmetic surgery according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, may offer the perfect solution. The surgery increases the size of your breasts and improves breast volume using implants or a fat transfer procedure.

Breast augmentation is a good choice if:

  • You feel that your breasts are too small.
  • One of your breasts is large than the other.
  • You've lost volume in your breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
  • You've had a mastectomy.
  • You want your breasts to look rounder.

If you plan to undergo breast augmentation, you must be in good health and have realistic expectations regarding the results of the surgery. If you are a young woman, you must also wait until your breasts have developed completely before you have the surgery.

What happens during breast augmentation?

After you receive anesthesia, your doctor will make an incision under your breast, in your armpit or along the darker areola in the center of the breast. If you will be receiving silicone or saline implants, your doctor will either place the implants behind your breast tissue or over or under the pectoral muscle in your chest.

If you choose a fat transfer breast augmentation, your doctor will use liposuction to suction fat from a few areas of your body, such as the abdomen, hips, flank, thighs or back. Once the fat is removed, it will be thoroughly cleaned before being injected into your breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation is a good option if you want to increase the size of your breasts slightly or want to correct small differences in the size of your breasts.

Breast augmentation can improve your silhouette and boost your self-esteem! Schedule an appointment with Dr. Douglas Hegyi of Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center by calling (810) 664-7640 for the Lapeer, MI, office or (248) 844-3690 for the Rochester, MI, office.

Breast augmentation is the most common cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States according to the American Society breast augmentationof Plastic Surgeons. It’s the process of increasing or decreasing the size of the breasts, or lifting them for a more favorable appearance. This cosmetic surgery is now available at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Rochester and Lapeer, MI. 

Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation
Your breast size is one part of your body that you can’t normally change with exercise or diet -- it's mostly determined by heredity. If you’re not satisfied with the size of your breasts, implants can be surgically added to them to enhance your physique. Some women choose this procedure after they have lost a lot of weight. Breast augmentation also helps patients who have asymmetrical breasts (one breast is slightly larger than the other). In some cases, your doctor can also do a breast lift in addition to augmentation to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. 

The Breast Augmentation Consultation
Before this procedure, you must come in for a detailed cosmetic consultation with your Rochester and Lapeer, MI, plastic surgeon. There you will discuss your goals, including the cup size you want and the type of implant. You may be a candidate for a fat transfer augmentation, which injects fat from another area of your body into the breasts. Your surgeon will also review your medical history and get familiar with any allergies or conditions you may have. If cleared for the surgery, you'll be scheduled for another appointment and given preparatory instructions.

What to Expect from the Procedure
You must be in good general health to have breast augmentation surgery. The average procedure is finished in a couple of hours. Your Rochester and Lapeer, MI, surgeon will have you under general or intravenous anesthesia the entire time, so you must have a companion with you. An incision is made in an inconspicuous location where the implant or fat tissue will be inserted. After suturing and some recovery time, you can go home the same day. You should expect to take at least a week off from work after a breast augmentation surgery to ensure proper healing.

Consult a Cosmetic Surgeon
To get a full view of what breast augmentation involves, talk to a plastic surgeon and ask the questions you still have on your mind. Call (248) 844-3690 today for Rochester, MI, or (810) 664-7640 to schedule a cosmetic consultation at Northpointe Ear Nose Throat & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Lapeer, MI.

Do you want to get fuller, perkier breasts in the New Year?

Have you always wished that you had fuller, larger breasts? Are you tired of wearing padded bras? Then it might be time to consider Breast augmentationretiring those bras for something a bit more long-term like breast augmentation. Our Rochester and Lapeer, MI cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Douglas Hegyi, has the answers to your questions regarding this procedure and what makes a good candidate for treatment.

What is a breast augmentation?

This cosmetic surgery is designed to improve breast volume and to increase the size of your breasts. It can even improve breast fullness and the appearance of asymmetrical breasts. While this is often considered an aesthetic procedure it can also be used to reconstruct breasts after a mastectomy.

What are the steps taken in this cosmetic surgery procedure?

General anesthesia is used for anyone undergoing breast augmentation. A small incision will be made in the breast. There are different types of incisions that can be made to make the scar less visible. The type and size of the implant will determine the type of incision that we make.

Then the implant is placed through the incision. The breast implant may be placed either above or below the pectoral muscle. Once the implant has been placed we will close up the incision with stitches or surgical tape.

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?

Those who are unhappy with the way their breasts look but are otherwise healthy and have realistic goals and expectations for cosmetic surgery will be the best candidates for this procedure. By scheduling an appointment with our cosmetic surgeon we will be able to perform a physical examination to determine whether you could benefit from a breast augmentation.
