Breast Augmentation Candidates
While candidacy for breast augmentation depends on the individual, the women from Murray, Sandy, West and South Jordan, UT and surrounding areas who visit Dr. Reuben for this procedure often have one or more of the following motivations:
- The desire for fuller breasts
- Breasts that have lost volume from breastfeeding or weight loss
- Motivation to do something for themselves
- The desire for a more proportionate body
- Asymmetry of the breasts
When you visit Dr. Reuben for your personal consultation regarding breast augmentation and options for implants, he will sit down with you and discuss your cosmetic goals. Once he feels you are a candidate for the procedure, he will work with you to tailor a surgical plan to your specific needs. If you are getting a breast augmentation revision procedure, Dr. Reuben carefully explains how the surgery is performed.
Breast Augmentation Options
To give you the most attractive and natural-looking results, Dr. Reuben will customize your procedure to features of your unique anatomy such as your height, weight, and the width of your chest. He will thoroughly review your choices for the following options:
- Breast implants can be filled with saline or cohesive silicone gel. Dr. Reuben offers a variety of breast implant shapes, sizes, profiles, and widths to provide truly personalized results.
- Incision placement is either along the edge of the areola (periareolar incision) or along the fold underneath the breast (inframammary incision).
- Implant placement is either above or beneath the chest (pectoralis) muscles.
The Dr. Reuben Difference
Dr. Reuben performs breast augmentation in an accredited hospital or surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. He begins the breast augmentation procedure by making each incision through which he creates a space for the implant. Once he has placed the implants and achieved the desired breast size and shape, he will close the incisions with sutures and apply surgical tape.
Dr. Reuben may combine breast enlargement with a breast lift if you have sagging that also needs correction. After pregnancy and breastfeeding, many women choose breast augmentation along with a tummy tuck, liposuction, labiaplasty or a combination of procedures.
What to Expect Afterward
After the procedure is complete, your chest will be bandaged and wrapped with a compression garment to help your breasts keep their new shape. While experiences vary, patients should expect to take about 1 week off from work. Typically, women return to normal, everyday activities after this time, but they are advised to refrain from heavy lifting or rigorous exercise for a few weeks.
