Breast augmentation involves the surgical insertion of breast implants, which results in an increased breast size. This procedure can help women whose breasts are small and underdeveloped, or those whose breasts have lost volume as a result or aging, pregnancy or nursing. For women who are looking to achieve a larger, fuller breast size, breast implants are available here in the Los Angeles area at the Taylor Plastic Surgery Center. The implants used for breast augmentation are usually filled with silicone or saline. If you have questions about breast implants used at the Taylor Plastic Surgery Center, please contact our Los Angeles area office today.
During breast augmentation surgery, the implant is inserted through incisions that are made on or near the breasts. The exact position of the incision varies, but they can be located in the crease under the breast, around the nipple or towards the armpit. After making the incision, the surgeon creates a small pocket either beneath the breast skin or under the chest muscle, which is where the implant is placed. The incision is closed with stitches, and bandages or dressings are applied over the wound. The procedure usually takes between one and two hours. For more information on breast implants and how the surgery is performed, contact our Los Angeles area office today to schedule a consultation appointment.
