Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty is a type of cosmetic breast surgery that enhances the size and volume of the breast by using either silicone or saline implants.

Breast augmentation can help many patients achieve their desired results including patients who have naturally small breasts, who have suffered a decrease in breast size after pregnancy, and those whose breasts have decreased in size after weight loss.

When To Consider a Breast Augmentation 

You should consider a breast augmentation if:

  • Weight loss, pregnancy or aging has affected the size and shape of your breasts
  • One breast is smaller than the other
  • You want a better proportioned figure
  • Your fully developed breasts are smaller than you would like

Breast Augmentation Procedure

To undergo a breast augmentation procedure, the patient is put under a general anesthetic and the surgeon makes an incision, lifts the breast tissue and inserts either a silicone or saline implant.  During a pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Ladak will determine how your implant should be inserted and positioned.

Breast Augmentation Results

While there may be some post-surgery bruising and swelling, you will see results immediately after your surgery is complete. Additionally, as the post-procedure effects disappear, your results will continue to improve.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

After your breast augmentation surgery, you may be instructed to wear a support bra or garment to promote healing. It takes around 5-10 days for you to be able to resume your regular schedule and Dr. Ladak will give you instructions on how to care for your treated areas after surgery.
