Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?
Breast augmentation can completely enhance your appearance and give you a fuller, more voluptuous figure. If you struggle with any of the following concerns, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation:
- A flat chest or disproportionately small breasts
- A loss of volume in the breasts following pregnancy or weight loss
- Uneven or asymmetrical breasts
- Previous breast augmentation with unsatisfactory results
Planning Your Treatment
Before beginning treatment, Dr. Murphy will carefully plan out your surgery. Together, you will determine the right type of implants and the best incision pattern for your needs. Dr. Murphy uses both silicone and saline implants. Both types are safe and provide natural-looking results. Whether you choose saline or silicone implants will depend on your treatment goals, budget, and other personal preferences.
Dr. Murphy also performs breast revision to correct the results of another breast surgery. At your consultation, you will discuss your concerns with your previous procedure.
Additionally, Dr. Murphy performs breast augmentation for patients transitioning from male to female. He will determine the right way to improve your figure and achieve your desired results.
On the day of your surgery, you will be given general anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Once you are sedated, Dr. Murphy will create incisions, using one of several established incision patterns, either around your nipple, under your breast crease, or under your arm. He will then place the implants through these incisions. Although some doctors position implants above the breast muscle, Dr. Murphy prefers to place them under the muscle. He believes this method yields a more natural appearance. When the implants are in place, he will close up the incisions with dissolvable sutures and surgical tape. He will place a comfort, supportive bra on you to wear home. You may shower 48 hours after surgery.
What to Expect after Treatment
Recovery from breast augmentation typically takes about a week, and you can return to work after this time. You should avoid strenuous physical activities for several more weeks, or until Dr. Murphy gives his approval. You may experience some swelling and discomfort, which will typically fade within a few weeks. In the meantime, you can control post-surgical sensitivity with a compression bra or bandage. You may also take pain medication. You will need to attend several follow-up appointments with Dr. Murphy so he can monitor your progress, and counsel you on post surgical massage and implant adjustment if needed.
Immediately after your surgery, you will notice the change in your figure. As swelling subsides and you continue to recover, the results will become even more apparent and stunning. As you adjust to the new size of your breasts, you will not only enjoy a more curvaceous figure, you will also enjoy a greater sense of self-confidence.
