Breast Enlargement in Charlotte, NC is performed to increase the size and fullness of the breast.

Women whose breasts are disproportionately small, or whose breasts have sagged or “deflated” after childbirth, or who have unevenly-shaped or sized breasts, are candidates for the Breast Enlargement procedure.

The location of the incisions, under/over the muscle, breast size, choice of implant type and shape are custom designed for each patient based on their needs and their body and breast types.


What are the advantages of having a Breast Augmentation?

Larger and more shapely breasts. A more positive self image.

Who is a good candidate for a Breast Augmentation?

Women who desire larger breasts or women with a moderate degree of breast sagging and smaller breasts, whose problem can be solved by enlargement.

What does a Breast Augmentation procedure involve?

A Breast augmentation typically takes between one and three hours to complete, but the exact time will vary according to the particular patient, the technique used, the implant placement, and the type of anesthesia used.

How long does a Breast Augmentation take?

A Breast augmentation typically takes between one and three hours to complete, but the exact time will vary according to the particular patient, the technique used, the implant placement, and the type of anesthesia used.

How long does it take to recover from a Breast Augmentation?

Sutures are removed in 7-12 days.

When can I expect to see results from my Breast Augmentation?

“98% of women undergoing breast augmentation surgery say the results met or exceeded their expectations, according to a prospective outcome study published in the May issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

 

Furthermore, an amazing 92% of women reported improved self-esteem after breast augmentation and 64% reported an improved quality of life!”

 

How long will the results of a Breast Augmentation last?

It is not known how long breast implants last. The implant may or may not last a lifetime and depends upon the manufacturing process and other, as yet, unknown factors.

What are my alternatives to having a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation via autologous fat transfer is an alternative type of augmentation. This is a natural breast enhancement procedure that entails the transfer of fat from one area of the body to the breasts for enlargement. Saline and silicone gel breast implants are not used with this technique; rather, the patient’s own fat is injected into the breasts.

What are the risks involved with having a Breast Augmentation?

The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.

Breast augmentation involves many different options and techniques. Choices must be made about the incision location and the implant placement. At the Enhanced Images Medical, we offer our patients the choice of where their incision will be placed for the insertion of the implants. Each incision approach has its advantages and disadvantages.

Our Board Certified Plastic Surgeons will make a recommendation based upon your physique, pre-operative breast size/shape and your level of physical activity. Augmentation Mammaplasty increases both size and fullness of the breasts.

In terms of incision placement, the axillary (armpit) and inframammary (crease where the breast and chest come together) placements are typically associated with fewer complications with future breast feeding, though both of these placements do produce a visible, though small, scar. The peri-areolar (through the nipple) placement involves a less visible scar, but it is associated with an increase in breast feeding complications. There is also a fourth placement, known as the umbilical or endoscopic placement, which involves insertion of the implant through the navel, or belly button.

When it comes to the placement of the implant itself, there is the choice between subglandular (behind the breast tissue) and submuscular (underneath the chest wall muscles). For the subglandular placement, the implants are placed above the chest muscle. Though this placement typically involves shorter surgery and recovery times and less pain, it may also involve an increased risk of implant palpability, capsular contracture, and mammography interference. On the other hand, the submuscular placement, or beneath the chest muscle, typically involves a decreased risk of capsular contracture, implant palpability, and mammography interference. However, this placement is also associated with longer surgery and recover times and more pain

Are Silicone Implants safe?

After rigorous scientific review, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the marketing of silicone gel-filled breast implants made by two companies for breast reconstruction in women of all ages. The products are made by Allergan Corp. (Formerly Inamed Corp.) and Mentor Corporation. Mentor Corp.’s silicone gel implants are called the Memory Gel Breast implants.

In the past decade, many independent studies have been performed to examine whether silicone gel-filled breast implants are associated with connective tissue disease or any cancers. These studies have concluded that there is no convincing evidence that breast implants are associated with either of these diseases.
