Breast Augmentation in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, FLMany women seek breast augmentation if they are unhappy with the shape, size, or position of their breast. There are various factors of why your breasts have changed, such as aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or genetically acquired imperfection. Whatever your case, a breast augmentation by Dr. Brueck in Fort Myers may be your solution!
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, increases and improves the size, shape, and/or fullness of a woman’s breasts. Women from ages 18 to 60 choose breast augmentation for many reasons, including asymmetrical, disproportionate, or inadequate breasts, loss volume due to pregnancy, or saggy breasts due to gravity. A consultation with Dr. Brueck is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation.
The procedure typically takes about 90 minutes and involves sedation so you are completely comfortable. During breast augmentation, Dr. Brueck will place silicone, saline, or alternative composite breast implants under the chest muscles or breast tissue to add immediate volume and shape. Many patients worry about scarring, but Dr. Brueck carefully closes your incisions with the stitches placed beneath the skin, which results in fine scares that are barely noticeable.
Types of breast implants
There are several types and designs of implants available, which Dr. Brueck will help you choose during your initial consultation. He often recommends silicone breast implants because he believes they are softer and have a more natural appearance and feel compared to saline breast implants. During your consultation in his Fort Myers office, Dr. Brueck will explain many surgical options including:
- Saline, silicone gel, and “gummy bear” breast implants
- Different shapes of implants, including teardrop and round
- Placement options, including above or below the pectoral muscle
- Incision location, which is under the breast where it meets the chest wall, or at the edge of the areola
How long is recovery from breast augmentation in Fort Myers?
After your breast augmentation, expect to feel tired and sore, which is normal. Dr. Brueck will prescribe painkiller to aide you through the first few days after surgery.
Generally, women can walk and move around between 24 to 48 hours after surgery. While you recovery, it is important to restrict any physical activity for at least one month. You should avoid heavy lifting, and regular activities can typically resume after one month.
