Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Atlanta

Breast Implants

Breast augmentation can improve breast size and add natural-looking volume using implants. Having breasts that are too small for your frame or otherwise out of proportion with the rest of your body may make patients feel self-conscious. Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team offer breast augmentation in Atlanta to patients who want larger, fuller-looking breasts.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is the most desired plastic surgery procedure performed annually in the United States. Augmentation is a popular choice for breast enhancement because it can improve breast shape and size to give a patient a more proportional figure, along with the attractive curves she has always desired. Although approximately 80% of women who request enlargements do so for cosmetic reasons, the remaining 20% account for medical reasons, such as the need for a reconstructed breast after cancer.

What Are The Benefits Of Breast Augmentation?

Women choose to have a breast augmentation in Atlanta for many reasons. Opting for implants may be right for you if you feel your breasts are deflated, unproportional, or negatively impact your body image.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

During your consultation for breast augmentation in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team will thoroughly assess your physical and emotional health and discuss your specific cosmetic goals for the procedure. Our surgeons will evaluate the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin, and the placement of your nipples and areolas to determine the best treatment plan for you.

In some cases, we may recommend additional cosmetic procedures to improve your overall results. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for breast augmentation, our plastic surgeons will explain all your options along with the details of your surgery, as well as any possible complications and risks involved. Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team realize that every woman is unique in both her desires and anatomy; that is why we will take the necessary time to understand your expectations and customize a treatment plan designed exclusively for you.

What Are My Options For Breast Augmentation In Atlanta?

Most women have an idea of what they want their new breasts to look like, and to achieve that look, the proper size and shape of the implant must be selected. Today’s breast implants are made from either saline or silicone. Both implant types are approved as safe to use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and each breast implant option offers its own advantages. During your consultation, Dr. Killingsworth and his plastic surgery team can help you decide which type of breast implant is right for you.

Saline Breast Implants:

Saline-filled implants are made of a silicone outer shell. They are made of a saltwater solution that is easily absorbed by the body in case of an implant rupture. Saline breast implants are filled after undergoing the implant placement, so they require a smaller incision. Saline-filled implants are slightly firmer, so they do have a greater chance of rippling.

Silicone Breast Implants:

Silicone breast implants are composed of a silicone outer shell filled with a thick, silicone gel. This type of implant is known for its natural appearance and feel, and there is less chance of visible rippling – although they do require a larger incision. Today’s silicone breast implants are safer and more natural-looking.






What Can I Expect During Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is typically performed using general anesthesia (although, in some cases, other options are available). Breast augmentation surgery typically lasts 1 to 2 hours depending on the extent of the surgery. One of the most important operative decisions of breast augmentation is the forming of the implant pockets where your plastic surgeon will create space for your breast implants to be inserted. These pockets are the foundation for your new breasts and achieving proper structure requires a small release of the chest muscle (pectoralis major), which creates a more beautiful breast shape. Our Atlanta breast augmentation surgeons will make the incisions for your breast augmentation in inconspicuous places to minimize scar visibility. The different types of breast implant incisions include:

Transaxillary Incision:

Located in the armpit

Inframammary Incision:

Located in the crease on the underside of the breast

Periareolar Incision:

Located around the areola (the dark skin around the nipple)

After the incision is made, your breast implants will be inserted and this placement will determine the way the breasts will project themselves after your breast augmentation surgery. Placing the breast implant above the muscle (sub-glandular) can produce a more rounded, fuller look that many women desire.

What Can I Expect After Breast Implants?

It is normal to feel tired and sore after your breast implant surgery. Patients may experience a pulling or stretching feeling surrounding the treatment area. These side effects typically subside in a few days with most patients returning to work after one week. In the weeks following the procedure, patients should avoid heavy lifting. The proper post-operative garments should be worn throughout the entire healing process to ensure patients receive their expected results.

Through careful planning and precise surgical technique, our breast augmentation surgeons can help create the breasts you have always dreamed of. Breast implant surgery can achieve natural-looking breasts, with an appropriate size, shape, and feel that fits harmoniously with your overall frame and body type.

What Results Can I Expect From Breast Augmentation In Atlanta?

The results of breast augmentation are natural-looking and long-lasting. Although some results will be noticeable immediately, the full results of your breast augmentation may take up to 4 months to be noticed. Over this time, your breast implants will settle into their long-term position and all swelling will subside. Initially, your implants may appear to be sitting quite high on your chest. Factors such as implants size, shape, position, and post-surgical care can play a role in how long this process takes.
