Some women have breasts that are completely different cup sizes or that are extremely tuberous. This can make a woman feel self-conscious and insecure about her appearance. But the problem can be solved with careful measurement of the chest wall and the breasts, which allows Dr. Siegel to choose the most appropriately sized implants.
Breast implants are chosen according to each patient’s personal specifications. The goal of the surgeon is to create a look that is both natural and feminine. We work toward creating beauty, symmetry, and balance for each patient.
After breast augmentation surgery, there is muscle soreness for 4 to 7 days which is treated with medication and a support bra. Most patients can begin driving between 2-5 days after surgery. Exercise can cause excessive swelling or bleeding and must be avoided for a minimum of two weeks. The shape of the breast will change and improve until the final shape is achieved at six months. Patients with misshapen or uneven breasts can benefit from a breast augmentation, but occasionally an additional procedure (mastopexy) may also be required.
