Natural-Looking Breast Augmentation 

Look no further than SANDS Aesthetics + Plastic Surgery for your breast augmentation in New Orleans. Dr. Trey Sands can help you achieve aesthetically pleasing proportions and natural-looking results by placing breast implants.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that involves inserting silicone or saline implants to improve the size, fullness, and shape of the breasts.

It is a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of your breasts, and it can lead to increased confidence and self-esteem for many.

During the procedure, the surgeon makes incisions in the breast area and places the implants under or over the chest muscle based on the amount of natural breast tissue. With a submuscular approach, slimmer women will achieve a more attractive result, with less risk of rippling or capsular contracture. Breast augmentation is a highly customizable procedure tailored to meet the patient’s unique needs and goals.

What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation? 

Breast augmentation can offer a range of benefits, including:

  • Enhanced appearance: One of the most apparent advantages of breast augmentation is the improvement in breast size, fullness, and shape, which enhances the overall appearance of the breasts and balances the figure beautifully.
  • Increased self-confidence: Breast augmentation increases self-esteem and self-confidence, improving quality of life and can enhance psychological and emotional well-being.
  • Clothing options: With a fuller bust, patients can wear a broader range of clothing styles that fit nicely without needing different sizes for tops and bottoms.
  • Restored breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss: Breast augmentation can help restore breast volume lost because of pregnancy or significant weight loss.
  • Improved symmetry: Breast augmentation can resolve asymmetrical breasts by adding volume to create balance and harmony.

How is Breast Augmentation Performed?

Our breast augmentation in New Orleans involves making one of several incision patterns. The most commonly used incisions include around the areola, under the breast, or in the armpit. After the correct incisions are placed, a surgical pocket is created in which to put the implant, either under the existing breast tissue or under the chest muscle, depending on which approach will create the most beautiful outcome for the individual. The incisions are then closed with sutures, and bandages are placed over the breasts to promote healing. The procedure typically takes one to two hours to complete and is performed under general anesthesia.

What Can I Expect After My Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Some discomfort is to be expected after breast augmentation surgery; however, Dr. Sands will prescribe pain medication to keep you comfortable in the early stages of healing. In addition, your breasts will be swollen and bruised for several days following the procedure. Some patients could experience numbness in the breasts and nipples, which is temporary and will improve in the weeks ahead. Some additional factors to consider include:

  • Recovery time: You will need to take some time off work after your surgery to allow yourself to heal. Initially, you must sleep on your back, elevated with pillows or a foam wedge, and avoid lifting your arms above your shoulders or lifting anything heavy, including children and pets. Dr. Sands will provide instructions on when you can return to exercise and other regular activities. Most patients can return to work and normal activities in one week. Avoid strenuous physical activities for four to six weeks to allow time for the incisions to heal. 
  • Scarring: All surgeries leave scars, including breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Sands will use advanced surgical techniques to minimize visible scarring, with all incisions placed in areas where they are hidden, even when wearing low-cut tops, bras, and bikini tops.
  • Follow-up appointments: You will have several follow-up appointments in the weeks and months following your surgery. This is to ensure your recovery is uneventful and to monitor your progress.

After the breasts have fully healed, women can begin to enjoy the beauty of fuller, shapelier, perkier breasts. Although results are long-lasting, implants are checked routinely to help maintain breast health. Breast augmentation in New Orleans produces long-lasting physical enhancement, with the added benefit of dramatically enhancing confidence and self-image.
