Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures around the world. Breast augmentation has helped countless people feel comfortable with the appearance of their body, and the procedure can often help to enhance self-image and self-confidence.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Cox has performed numerous breast augmentations at our surgical center located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and has the skill and experience required to provide amazing results.
During a breast augmentation, Dr. Cox will insert breast implants into the breasts, which will effectively increase the size of the breasts and the appearance of breast fullness. Breast implants can also help to give the breasts a rounder and shapelier appearance and can improve projection, along with providing beneficial results when it comes to correcting breast asymmetry.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts and feel like having larger breasts would help improve your comfort with your body, you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. It is important that you be in good overall health.
Factors like major changes in weight and becoming pregnant can have a negative affect on the results of your breast augmentation. It is best to wait until you have finished having children and have reached your ideal body weight before undergoing surgery.
Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
During your initial consultation, you will meet with Dr. Cox and he will invite you to share your goals, desires and concerns regarding breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Cox will draw upon his decades of experience to help you understand the multitude of choices, implants types, and procedures available, and how each will interact with your specific anatomy to impact the possible outcome.
Dr. Cox will work to ensure that you are fully informed and completely comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Cox prefers natural appearing outcomes but he does work with all patient’s to help each and every patient reach their specific outcome. His main focus is ensuring that his patients are safe, healthy, and fully satisfied with the results of their breast augmentation.
Surgery is most often performed in our office operative suite, Cumberland Surgical Center. We have a wide range of implant types and sizes on site at all times. Typical augmentation procedures are less than one hour. Recovery for most patients is very manageable and most patients returned to casual daily (or limited work) activities within a week.
Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common and can be managed with medication. A special surgical bra will need to be worn, which will provide additional support during the recovery period.
Throughout this process we hold you, our patient, at the center of our practice and we want to ensure your happiness throughout. We invite you to let us know how we are doing.
