Breast augmentation can achieve several goals, including:
- Enlarging small breasts
- Creating breast symmetry
- Correction of mis-shapen breasts
- Reshaping and enlarging of breasts that have lost their shape or fullness due to pregnancy, weight fluctuation, the aging process, or genetics
Your breast augmentation consultation will serve as the first step in making the decision to enhance your breasts. During your consultation, Dr. Patel will address your questions, concerns, and expectations, as well as your options for breast augmentation, including type of implants, your incision, implant placement, and implant size.
He will also review your medical history to ensure that you do not have any existing health conditions that may increase your risk of complications. The ideal candidate will be in good physical and psychological health and have fully developed breasts.
Immediately following your breast augmentation procedure, you should anticipate soreness and swelling in your breasts for several weeks. Dr. Patel will provide detailed instructions for resuming your normal activities. You should avoid exercising or partaking in strenuous activity for at least six weeks. He will also provide an explanation of how to best care for your breasts after surgery, including follow-up appointments, massage techniques, medications, and what type of bras to wear.
