The majority of the women are unhappy with how their breasts look, and this can have a huge negative impact on their self-confidence. Due to this reason, many women feel uncomfortable every time they step out in public.
Do you find that the size of your breasts is not up to your expectations? Do you feel that they are asymmetrical in size? If so, then you can solve these problems by getting a breast augmentation.
Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation is a procedure used to enhance the fullness and projection of your breasts while restoring symmetry. Dr. Keegan will aim to give your augmented breasts a natural look while improving their aesthetics.
Because each body is different, your results will be uniquely personal and suited to your specific needs and goals. Your consultation with Dr. Keegan will help him give you the results you’re looking to achieve.
Advantages of Breast Augmentation
• Improves Volume: Breasts that are not big enough to suit your frame may not give you the curves necessary to complement your physique. Breast augmentation increases the volume of your breasts, which in turn enhances your proportions.
• Makes Asymmetrical Breasts Symmetrical: One of the most common problems among women is asymmetrical breasts. In some cases, the difference is quite noticeable, which makes it harder to find the right bathing suits and bras. Breast augmentation evens out the breasts, giving them a matching profile and size.
What Happens During the Surgery?
In order to insert breast implants, Dr. Keegan must first make the necessary incisions. These can be made in the breast fold, in the armpit, or around the areola. Next, Dr. Keegan separates the connective tissue and muscles in key areas as required and then inserts the implants. He centers the implants to ensure they are behind the areolae.
If you are getting saline implants, Dr. Keegan inserts the empty implant shells into the implants before filling them with saline. If you are getting silicone implants, Dr. Keegan inserts them pre-filled.
Once the implants have been correctly positioned, the augmentation incisions will be carefully closed with the help of medical stitches.
What Should You Do After the Procedure?
After the breast augmentation is complete, you can go home and allow the surgical areas to heal. As per Dr. Keegan’s post-surgical care instructions, you will have to wear supportive garments such as an elastic band or a sports bra to support your breasts. Make sure that you wear these garments at all times during the healing process, because they help to prevent implant drift and control swelling.
For the next two weeks, you should avoid participating in any strenuous activities. This helps you avoid any post-surgical complications during the recovery process.
