Achieved with Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation uses saline or silicone implants to increase the size and improve the shape and symmetry of the breasts. The result is a larger, more voluminous breast area. Breast augmentation can change the overall physique of the woman’s body in a positive way, which can boost her confidence and improve her self-esteem.

What Does A Breast Augmentation Entail?
Breast augmentation can help a woman achieve larger, more shapely breasts by increasing the size and improving the shape and symmetry of the breasts using implants. Overall, a breast augmentation can make the body more symmetrical and proportionate to the rest of the body.
When performing a breast augmentation, Dr. Taylor will help each patient decide on the best technique, the implants to use, and the location of the incision. He will insert saline or silicone breast implants through an incision either in the breast crease, around the nipple, or in the armpit. Dr. Taylor will create a pocket and insert the implants beneath the breast tissue or under the chest muscle.
After Dr. Taylor places the implants and closes the incisions with stitches, he will apply a dressing to the site, which will remain in place for a few days. Patients can expect their recovery to last about two to four weeks. Prescribed medication will help alleviate any discomfort, aid in healing, and help prevent infection.
During the first few days of recovery, patients will need to rest and refrain from strenuous activity. Soreness and swelling are typical for the first few weeks. A sports bra or elastic bandage can be used to support the breasts and help with any soreness or swelling. Within a week, most patients can go back to work and resume their normal routine. However, patients should refrain from strenuous activity for six weeks.
Scarring is usually minimal and, depending on the patient and how they heal, will fade over time. Dr. Taylor customizes each breast augmentation procedure depending on the patient’s goals and his recommendations. He will either make an incision in the breast crease, around the nipple, or near the armpit.

With the latest advancements in plastic surgery, breast augmentation involves minimal pain.

Most patients have a positive surgery experience, and only feel temporary discomfort from the swelling and bruising, which is easily controlled with oral medication.
