When you consider breast implants, you want to know two things: that your surgery will be safe and that you will look great after. The surgeons at Hunstad Kortesis are well-known breast surgery experts with many years of training, experience, and over hundreds of breast augmentation surgeries performed. When you come to us, you are not only assured of a successful outcome, but you are treated like family in our state-of-the-art, fully accredited surgical facility. For all of these reasons, breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures we perform.
Now, with Vectra 3D Imaging, you can see how you will look after your surgery and make adjustments beforehand. You can view how different shapes and sizes will look and decide what you prefer. This advanced technology also ensures that your surgeon knows exactly what look you want to achieve.
Breast augmentation may be part of a breast reconstruction procedure, and we often perform a breast lift at the same time as breast augmentation. If you have already had a breast augmentation that did not go well, we can also perform breast augmentation revision surgery.
Rest assured that you will receive the gold standard treatment at Hunstad Kortesis where all of our anesthesiologists are board-certified and all of our nurses are certified in advanced cardiac life support.
What can breast augmentation do for me?
Besides helping you feel sexier and more self-confident, breast implants can make your body more proportionate and help your clothes fit better.
What can I expect during a breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that takes less than one hour.
We offer all methods of breast enlargement and incision placement, as well as a variety of FDA-approved implant shapes in both silicone and saline. The advanced techniques we employ allow us to create incisions in inconspicuous locations, either in the apex of the armpit, periareolar (an incision under the nipple at the areola where the color changes naturally), inframammary (under the crease of the breast), or the TUBA technique, in which the implants are inserted through an incision inside the navel.
We also provide three options for placement of your implants:
- Subglandular – the implant is placed directly under the gland of the breast.
- Submuscular – the implant is placed under the pectoralis major muscle.
- Subfacial – a newer technique in which the implant is placed below a thin, but strong layer of connective tissue that covers the pectoralis major muscle. With this method, you get some of the “internal bra” benefit of the submuscular technique without implant animation that causes the implants to move when the muscles contract.
All of these choices can be confusing, but don’t worry. During your consultation at Hunstad Kortesis, your surgeon will explain all of the options to you so that you can make informed decisions as to the size, shape, placement, and type of FDA-approved implant you want.
How long does it take to recover from breast augmentation?
Most of our patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days. Lifting and vigorous exercise are restricted for a few weeks, however.
We will provide special instructions to help you recover from your surgery as fast as possible. You can expect some tenderness and a feeling of tightness. You may also experience some bruising and swelling, but these conditions should resolve quickly, leaving you with the beautiful breasts you’ve always wanted.
