More and more each year, women, both in Indiana and elsewhere, choose breast enlargement surgery. Annually, over 400,000 breast surgeries are performed nationally. At My Plastic Surgery Group we know that choosing to give yourself the curves you desire is not always about vanity. Often, it is about fulfilling a reasonable, logical desire to be satisfied with the way you look. It is not uncommon to want to look as good as you feel and it is also not impossible thanks to breast augmentation surgery.
There are several choices in breast augmentation procedures to enhance your breast shape and size.
ENDOSCOPIC BREAST AUGMENTATION (endo aug)
Endoscopic Breast Augmentation surgery is a brief surgical procedure done under general anesthesia. During this breast augmentation procedure, a small incision is made in a fold in the armpit area. Then, an endoscope, which is a lighted tube that has a video camera attached, is used to create a pocket for the implant underneath the chest muscles. The endoscope allows our surgeons to see better so that the pocket is created more accurately. This pocket can be either directly behind the breast tissue or behind the pectoral muscle which is behind the breast tissue. Dr. Sando and Dr. Aker all prefer to place the implant behind the pectoral muscle to give you the most natural look possible. The upper breast will then have a more natural slope and graceful appearance. What you are left with is a round breast that looks very natural . Most of the time it is extremely difficult to see the armpit scar after it is healed and has faded. Because the implant was inserted through the armpit there is no scar left on the breasts at all. This procedure was brought to Indiana and the Indianapolis and Carmel region by Dr. Aker in 1996. Our practice has performed over 2,000 endoscopic breast augmentations. Although practiced frequently on the east and west coasts, we have the most experience with this technique in the Midwest.
Peri-areolar and Inframammary Breast Augmentation
In Indiana, the most common incision sites for breast augmentation are around the lower edge of the areola (peri-areolar) and in the fold below the breast (infra-mammary fold). These locations work well for most surgeons, allowing direct access to the breast tissue and muscle. These techniques also place the implants directly behind the breast tissue or behind the pectoral muscle which is behind the breast tissue. Again, the surgeons at My Plastic Surgery Group prefer to place the implant behind the pectoral muscle to give the most natural looking breasts possible.
Quick Recovery Breast Augmentation
We also offer a quick recovery program for breast augmentation. Local anesthesia (numbing medicine) is injected into the breast immediately before surgery to prevent discomfort from the beginning of the procedure. After the pocket is developed, a long lasting numbing medicine is placed into the pocket to provide pain relief in the early recovery period. Very strong Motrin-like medicine is used instead of narcotics so you are able to be more alert and active the day of your surgery.
There is a lot of buzz in the media these days about things such as “super quick” breast augmentation procedure. “Have breast augmentation surgery in the morning and go out dancing that night”, “no recovery time breast augmentation“, etc. are some examples of this buzz. As a general rule, the larger the breast implant, the more painful and longer the recovery will be. In general, when a smaller implant is placed in a pocket above the muscle, the recovery will be very quick and discomfort will be minimal, but remember that the above-muscle positioning of an implant may compromise mammography. Feel free to discuss this option with Dr. Sando or Dr. Aker at your personal consultation appointment. They will be happy to address any of your concerns regarding recovery time and more.
All of the above mentioned breast augmentation surgeries will take about an hour and a half. After surgery you will be watched carefully by nurses until a decision is made as to when you are capable of going home. Stitches will be internal and will not need to be removed. You will be wearing an elastic band that goes above the breasts and under the arms to help hold the implant in position in the early recovery period. Patients are often surprised by how little discomfort they experience after surgery. You’ll be able to quickly resume your normal activities and can resume light exercise within a few days.
TUBA -Trans-umbilical breast augmentation is a breast augmentation procedure where the incision is placed in the belly button. And, although this is a safe and controlled procedure, we don’t feel it is as controlled because it is a blind blunt procedure so we do not offer this technique as an option at My Plastic Surgery Group. We have seen several women with track marks on their tummy from this technique and noticeable scars around the belly button.
