Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement surgery, is among the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures practiced by board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Burgdorf.
REASONS FOR CONSIDERING BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY
Women have breast enlargement surgery for a variety of different and personal reasons. Many of our patients have found that Dr. Burgdorf has helped them fulfill their desires for breast augmentation beyond their highest expectations. Most patients opt for breast augmentation for many different reasons, here are a just a few examples.
- Increase the cup size of their breast
- Look more proportionate in clothing
- “Fill out” or fit better in existing clothing (dresses, bathing suits, etc.)
- Correct the reduction in breast volume that sometimes occurs after pregnancy
- Correct imbalance or asymmetry in breast size.
Thank you so much for the wonderful work you did on my new breasts! I am very happy with the outcome. The recovery was easy and painless. I appreciate the time you spent with me on my consultation, providing me with the proper knowledge to make the best decision. Thank you again. I could not be happier and more confident as a woman. – Breast Augmentation Patient
NATURAL LOOKING BREAST AUGMENTATION RESULTS
Dr. Burgdorf is an outstanding Nashville plastic surgeon dedicated to providing natural-looking results. He uses breast implants that are proportional and symmetrical to the rest of the body. After breast implant surgery, your breasts will appear more “shapely” and “full.” Improving the contour of your breasts can help improve your self-esteem.
During your consultation with Nashville plastic surgeon Dr. Burgdorf, he will assist you in choosing from the various types of saline and silicone gel breast implants. At Music City Plastic Surgery we combine the use of an objective breast measuring system with your subjective aesthetic goals to help you achieve your desired breast enhancement result. To this end, you will be invited to try on a patented implant Volume Sizing System to get a realistic idea of how you will look with your new enhancement.
BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE
At Music City Plastic Surgery in Nashville, Dr. Burgdorf performs breast augmentation as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia or deep intravenous sedation – as administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The procedure generally takes approximately one hour. All operations are performed in fully credentialed and state-of-the-art surgical facilities. As one of the premiere Nashville plastic surgeons, Dr. Burgdorf provides patients with unrivaled personal care and attention to detail.
PLACEMENT OF IMPLANTS
Dr. Burgdorf performs breast implant procedures using the specialized “dual-plane” technique, in which the implant is placed so that part of it resides beneath the pectoral muscle and part is under the lower portion of the native breast. The result is a more natural and youthful appearance that is also longer-lasting. This advanced surgical technique avoids the “operated-on” appearance associated with other techniques.
Dr. Burgdorf uses an infra-mammary incision, which is hidden in the natural fold of the breast. Incision length will vary depending upon implant type, anatomical variances of the patient, and degree of enlargement desired.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY
Severe pain after breast augmentation surgery is unusual. Any slight discomfort is easily controlled with oral pain medication. Small and meticulously placed self-absorbing sutures are usually gone within several days.
Most of our breast augmentation patients tell us they feel better than expected following their surgery and are able to return to work and social activities within one week. Light exercise can be resumed at two weeks after surgery. Final results can be expected anywhere from six weeks to three months after surgery.
SAFETY OF BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY
While numerous studies over the past decade have supported the safety of both saline and silicone gel breast implants, it is only natural to have concerns about breast implant safety. Music City Plastic Surgery in Nashville is devoted to helping you understand the risks and make informed decisions about your procedure. Nashville plastic surgeon Dr. Burgdorf takes time and care to help patients consider their options. Among plastic surgeons in Nashville, Dr. Burgdorf has a great amount of expertise in breast procedures.
