Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure in which implants are placed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Many candidates for breast augmentation have either naturally small or asymmetrical breasts. Others have experienced a change in their breast size/shape after pregnancy and nursing. Dr. Douglas Grace and Dr. Tutino help their breast augmentation patients select the type of implants that will best satisfy their cosmetic goals.

What Does Breast Augmentation Improve?

Breast augmentation in Burlington can improve several types of breast imperfections. Most women seeking breast augmentation have naturally small breasts and desire fuller, more voluptuous breasts. Others want to correct asymmetry in the breasts or improve their shape. Some women combine breast augmentation and breast lift to restore sagging breasts to a perkier position on the chest while adding volume.

Procedural Details

BreastAug2There are several decisions to make prior to breast augmentation surgery, namely:

  • Implant size, shape and type: round, teardrop, saline, silicone
  • Incision placement: on the areola or in the breast crease
  • Implant placement: partially/completely under the chest muscle or breast tissue

Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino will help you make important decisions about your breast augmentation surgery during the consultative phase. He will explain the pros and cons of each option and recommend the approach that he feels is most appropriate for your body type and best results.

To begin, Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino will make a surgical incision in the pre-determined location. Through the incision, he will create a small pocket either above or below the chest muscle to accommodate the implant. If he is using saline implants, he will place the empty shell in the breast pocket, and then slowly fill the implant to the desired capacity. Silicone implants are pre-filled prior to surgery. Once Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino have positioned the implants, he closes the incisions with sutures and applies surgical dressings. He may place a support bra around the breasts to help the tissues heal.

Breast augmentation patients usually feel sore and swollen after surgery, but these side effects subside after a few days. Any post-operative pain can be controlled with prescription medication. The surgical bra should be worn for several weeks as the body’s tissues conform to their new contours. Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino will provide detailed instructions for breast augmentation patients to follow, and is always available to answer questions or address post-operative concerns.

It is important for women recovering from breast augmentation to get a lot of rest during their initial recovery, and avoid any strenuous activity. It’s best to slowly ease back into their normal routine. Dr. Grace and Dr. Tutino meet with their patients several times after surgery and advises when it is safe to go back to work, school, exercise and other daily activities.
