One of the most commonly opted for procedure, breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure which helps enhance your breasts. Women in Bethesda find that with age or due to genetics and breastfeeding, their breasts have lost their youthful contours, have deflated or have become asymmetrical. Once we have evaluated these changes in your breasts, we help customize the augmentation procedure using implants to help you regain the perky shape and size.
If you are unhappy with your breasts, you will benefit from the breast augmentation procedure that helps you achieve the breast contours you desire. Women with breasts that are genetically small or asymmetrical, or those who have lost volume due to childbirth and breastfeeding are the ones who make for good augmentation candidates. You must be in good physical and emotional health and should have fully developed breasts. When you achieve the desired breast profile, it will also restore your self-image and self-confidence.
The breast augmentation procedure in Bethesda is highly customizable and personalized to suit your specific changes and cosmetic goals. During your augmentation consultation, your surgeon will discuss the many options available to you including the kind of implants, their size, placement techniques, and kind of incisions. To help you make these decisions, we offer the unique Crisalix 3D consultation where we help you see your future results in 3D, even from the comfort of your home. This is an easy way to see how the chosen size, shape and projection will look on you so that you can make the right decisions.
Once all the decisions are made, your procedure begins with the administering of anesthesia. The incisions for your augmentation are made in well concealed areas to ensure your scars are practically invisible. Your chosen implants are then placed either under or over the pectoral muscle as per the decision. Once the implants are positioned, your incisions are closed.
