What is Breast Augmentation?

Commonly referred to as a “boob job,” a Breast Augmentation is medically known as augmentation mammoplasty and may be performed using either saline-filled or silicone-filled implants. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the breasts by augmenting size and volume. Breast augmentation may also alter the shape and protrusion of the breasts.

Many women yearn for a fuller figure with more voluminous breasts to improve their overall appearance, particularly when wearing certain garments. Breast augmentation surgery can give you larger, fuller breasts to help improve your overall figure and boost your self-esteem. Breast augmentation may also alter the shape, volume, and protrusion of your breasts, achieving a personalized enhancement.

Patients choose this procedure for multiple reasons: some want to increase their size, some want to recover lost volume after weight loss or pregnancy, some want to create symmetry or lift and firm the breast, and some want to rebuild the breast after cancer. Breast augmentation is best for those who are seeking improvement, not perfection.

Whats the First Step?

If you are thinking about Breast Augmentation in Atlanta or the surrounding communities in Georgia, the first step is to contact Dr. Lissa Plastic Surgery and schedule your consultation. When you come in for this appointment, you will meet with Dr. Lissa Bootstaylor or one of our plastic surgery consultants and express your goals for the surgery. She will answer any questions you may have, examine your breasts, and ask you some questions regarding your medical history. It is very important to be open and honest with Dr. Lissa when having this conversation as it will help prevent any unnecessary risks.

This portion of the consultation is what most patients consider to be the most fun part. The two of you will talk about the options we offer when it comes to the implant, the cup size you are looking to have, and the overall shape. Once you make your final choices, Dr. Lissa will create your customized surgical plan. If you agree with the plan, our Patient Coordinator will help you choose your surgical date and give you some instructions to follow before coming in for your surgery that will help make your procedure as successful as possible.

What to Expect on the Day of Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bootstaylor performs surgical procedures at Emory University Hospital Midtown and Northside Hospital.

Before the surgery takes place, Dr. Bootstaylor and the patient will discuss objectives, the best implant to use, and where to make the incision. Implants vary by filler and size and will be based on the patient’s breast anatomy, body type, and desired increase in size. Incisions can be made where the chest meets the breast, around the areola, in the armpit, or in the navel.

Working through the incision, the patient’s breast tissue will be lifted to create a pocket, and then the chosen implant will be positioned within this pocket. The surgery is typically completed in one to two hours and is done under general anesthesia.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

After your surgery, we will wrap your breasts with a gauze dressing, along with a surgical bra, to help reduce swelling. We will keep you for a few hours post-surgery to monitor you, but once Dr. Lissa feels comfortable with releasing you, you will be free to leave and rest comfortably in your own home. We strongly recommend having a family member or friend available to provide you with a ride home, and even monitor you for a few hours after surgery, as you may be sore and still influenced by the anesthesia. Dr. Lissa will prescribe antibiotics that will help avoid infection and some temporary pain medication to alleviate any post-op pain. You will also be provided with instructions that will make your recovery the most successful.

You will need to wear a support bra for at least four or five weeks around the clock. Swelling, bruising, and numbness, particularly around the incision, are normal and generally subside over about six weeks, but can vary from patient to patient. You should rest for the first few days and avoid any strenuous activities for four to six weeks, or until Dr. Lissa says it’s okay. Most patients return to work in seven to ten days but must initially avoid any heavy lifting.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Atlanta?

The cost of Breast Augmentation in Atlanta is based on numerous factors, including which type of implant you are getting and the overall size and shape change you are looking to achieve. The best way to find out how much your surgery will be is to come in for a consultation with Dr. Lissa and allow her to make your treatment plan. Once this plan is made, our Patient Coordinator will be able to provide you with a total price breakdown and what you can expect.
