About Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the country. Whether your breasts are smaller than you like, or you are unhappy with the shape and overall look, this procedure results in fuller, firmer, shapelier breasts after placing a silicone or saline implant under or above the chest muscle. Women choose to have breast augmentation surgery for multiple reasons, and there are various options to consider when it comes to shape, size, type, and location of the implant, as well as incision placement. Atlanta, GA board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. McKnight-Baron wants to help you make the right decision that will meet your personal and aesthetic goals. We use both saline and silicone breast implants. During a thorough consultation, we will discuss everything you need to know and prepare you so that you can feel confident going into surgery.

Women who are healthy, in good medical condition, and who do not smoke can be considered for breast augmentation surgery. The majority of women who have this surgery do so because they are not satisfied with the current shape and size of their breasts. During the initial consultation, we will discuss requirements for surgery and determine what is necessary and/or realistic for your preferred goals. Suitable candidates for augmentation are women who exhibit disproportional breast size for their body shape, uneven breasts or asymmetry, a loss of firmness or breast tissue due to genetics, childbirth, and/or weight loss, and those who simply want a larger breast size. It is important to note that women who have sagging or drooping breasts may not be good candidates for this surgery; a breast lift or breast lift with augmentation is often better in these situations.
What to Expect
Based on your personal goals and the aesthetic outcome you desire, we will discuss the best treatment options during the consultation. Silicone and saline implants remain the primary choice in breast augmentation surgery. Saline implants are filled with saltwater at the time of surgery and give the doctor more control to make adjustments as needed during the operation. Saline filled implants are said to feel firmer than silicone and are recommended for patients who have enough natural breast tissue to avoid visible rippling. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are pre-filled and leave no room for adjustments during surgery. They tend to feel and look a bit more natural and are a better choice for women with very little breast tissue.
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia and typically takes under 2 hours to complete. After the procedure, our nurses will carefully wrap the patient in a sterile surgical dressing and create some compression with a medical sports bra. In the immediate days that follow surgery, the patient will be sore and swollen, but the aesthetic result will be seen immediately. Patients should take it easy for several days, but most can return to work within about 3-5 days. We advise no exercise for approximately 4-6 weeks to allow the breasts appropriate healing time. It takes about 4-6 months for the breasts to "drop" into their final position and for all swelling and bruising to go away, as well as a return of full breast sensation.
Following a thorough consultation, each patient will be given a customized treatment plan. This plan will be tailored based on many factors. It will determine the type of implant that will garner the patient's optimal results, and recommend the appropriate size, shape, texture, and brand of implant to use. Our surgeon will consider how much native breast tissue exists and an assessment will be made regarding breast base width, bone structure, skin tone, and a comparison of body shape to the breast size. Our goal is to produce the most natural-looking outcome for each patient. We will also discuss the appropriate incision type and placement once the implant is chosen. Breast implants typically are inserted beneath the pectoral muscle. Our first two choices for the incision is at the fold of the breast or adjacent to the nipple. We offer the most advanced techniques for your case to best hide scarring and provide the most gorgeous, natural outcome.
