Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants) in Sandy Springs, GA
If pregnancy, age, or fluctuations in your weight have changed the size or shape of your breasts, or if you have naturally small or disproportionate breasts, you may be able to achieve the full, voluptuous chest you desire through breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., is the chief plastic surgeon at the Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, where he offers breast augmentation surgery to the women of Sandy Springs, GA, and the surrounding areas.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that enhances the size and shape of the breasts using silicone or saline implants. Breast implant surgery is one of the top cosmetic surgeries among women for its ability to dramatically and permanently improve the appearance of the breasts.
Ideal Candidates For Breast Augmentation
The ideal candidates for breast implant surgery are adult women with fully developed breasts who are physically healthy and realistic about the procedure and their desired outcome. If you have underdeveloped breasts or your breasts have lost their volume and/or shape, giving way to loose skin, breast augmentation may be able to give you the breast size, shape, and proportion you desire.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast implants are inserted through a number of incisions, such as under the breast, around the areola, in the armpit, or above the breast crease, to skillfully hide any noticeable scarring. Dr. Work’s preferred method of implant insertion is through the armpit, using a small transaxillary incision that leaves no visible scarring on the breasts. With this endoscopic approach, the breast implant can still be placed over or under the pectoral muscle, and any scarring left behind in the armpit from the transaxillary incision will eventually fade over time.
