Breast Augmentation to Give You a Stunning Figure

Your Initial Consultation

Before your breast augmentation procedure, you will have a thorough consultation. At this time, Dr. Tyrone will determine your candidacy for this procedure, and you will discuss your cosmetic goals. Based on your objectives and body type, he will help you choose either saline or silicone implants, and make recommendations regarding the size and shape. Dr. Tyrone will make you feel at ease and take the time to answer your questions, ensuring that you are fully informed before undergoing your procedure.

Breast Augmentation Candidacy

If you are in generally good health, and are not pregnant, breastfeeding, or currently smoking, you are likely a good candidate for breast augmentation. It is important to inform Dr. Tyrone of your complete medical history and any medications you are currently taking. If you choose saline implants, you must be at least 18 years old or have a parent or legal guardian sign for you. If you choose to have Mentor® silicone implants, patients must be at least 22 years old or sign an informed consent waiver. It is very helpful if you come to your consultation with example pictures of what you hope to look like after your surgery. Breast augmentation candidates should also have realistic expectations regarding their procedures, which Dr. Tyrone can discuss with you during your consult.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

When you receive your breast implants, you will be under twilight sedation, which is very safe technique that minimizes discomfort and expedites recovery. During the surgery, Dr. Tyrone will make an incision, either under your breast or around your areola. He will insert the implant through this incision, typically placing it under the chest muscle. Finally, he will close the incision that will be carefully concealed in the natural folds of your breast.

Breast Augmentation Risks

Breast augmentation can enhance your appearance, make you look years younger, and give you a huge boost of self-assurance. Implants are quite safe, but, as with all surgical procedures, there are the potential for risks. One of the most common is capsular contracture, which causes hard scar tissue to form around the implant. Other risks, though rare, include infection, discomfort, scarring, and the possibility of revisionary surgery in the future.
