What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation in Philadelphia, also known as augmentation mammoplasty or breast implants is a surgical procedure to increase the size of the breasts. During a breast implant surgery, Dr. Silberman can increase your chest by several bra cup sizes through the insertion of a silicone or saline implant behind your natural breast tissue. Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States today, and thousands of Pennsylvania women have chosen to alter the size of their bust line through breast implants.

There are times when we look in the mirror and notice certain aspects about our body that we’d like to change. Many women may be generally happy with the way they look, but there may be one specific area they’d like to alter: their breasts. Some don’t like the fact that their breasts are too small or are out of proportion with the rest of their body. Others might have breasts that sag or look “deflated”.

If you fall into one of these categories, and you’re ready to make a significant change in the appearance of your breasts then a visit to Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Silberman is your next step. It may be the first step towards realizing your desired goal. The good news is that you’re one of many Pennsylvania women to get breast implants, since breast augmentation procedures have increased from over 32,000 cases in 1992 to more than 500,000 surgeries in 2010.

An important part of the preoperative consultation with Dr. Silberman includes a determination of the desired breast size and shape. Although many different breast contours can be achieved, a decision must be made that coincides with total body size, shape and the existing breast tissue.

How is breast augmentation surgery performed?

Breast augmentation surgery is carried out under general anesthesia and is performed at our accredited surgical facility. Prior to surgery, your breasts are carefully marked to indicate where incisions are to be made. Every effort is made to reduce the length of scars and to make them as inconspicuous as possible.

What is recovery like after a breast augmentation?

Discomfort following breast augmentation surgery is generally minimal to moderate and is usually controlled with oral medications. Most of our Philadelphia and Doylestown patients of breast augmentation may wear a special bra for several weeks and may be asked to limit certain activities that interfere with the healing process.

Swelling and discoloration may occur but usually subsides in a few days or weeks. Areas of numbness, firmness and tenderness around the incisions and under the skin are common. Normal feeling returns several weeks to a few months after surgery. Scars from the incisions, although permanent, fade significantly with time. Eighteen to 36 months may be required for this fading process to be completed.

Most of our Philadelphia and Doylestown breast augmentation patients planned to take one to two weeks off from work and other obligations. Strenuous activities must be avoided for a month to six weeks.
