What is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
For women who want the satisfying, even exhilarating, feeling of full, shapely breasts in order to feel more feminine, beautiful, and secure, breast augmentation performed by Munster plastic surgeon, Dr. Yessenow may be the answer. Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breast in cases where she feels her breast size is too small or she wants to correct a reduction in breast volume following pregnancy. In addition, breast augmentation is performed to balance a difference in breast size and as a reconstruction technique following breast surgery. By inserting an implant behind each breast, Dr. Yessenow is able to increase a woman’s bust line by one or more cup sizes. A breast implant is a silicone shell filled with either silicone gel or a saline solution.

What are the Breast augmentation Procedures Steps?
During surgery, the method of inserting and positioning your implant will depend on your anatomy and Dr. Yessenow’s recommendation. The incision can be made either in the crease where the breast meets the chest, around the areola, the dark tissue surrounding the nipple, or in the armpit. During the breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Yessenow will make every effort to fashion the incision in such a way that the resulting scars will be as inconspicuous as possible. Working through the incision, Dr. Yessenow will lift your breast tissue and skin to create a pocket, either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath your chest muscle. The surgery takes about two hours to complete.
What is the Breast Augmentation Recovery Process Like?
Recovery after Breast Augmentation can vary based on each patient but in most cases you will be able to go home after the surgery within a few hours. You may be instructed to wear a support bra and limit physical activity for the first few weeks. After a post-surgical breast augmentation recovery period of 24 to 48 hours and an additional reduced-activity period, you will likely experience soreness and swelling for a few weeks. Resuming your normal activity and physical lifestyle such as exercise can resume at the direction of Dr. Yessenow.
