Breast Augmentation

Conveniently located to serve Baton Rouge

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most commonly requested plastic surgery procedures around the world. Breast augmentation in Baton Rouge 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.

Breast Augmentation Overview

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.

Breast Augmentation Before and After

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 before your breast augmentation in Baton Rouge and that you have realistic expectations regarding the results possible through surgery.

Factors like major changes in weight and becoming pregnant can harm the results of your breast enlargement. It is best to wait until you have finished having children and have reached your ideal body weight before undergoing surgery.

How Should You Prepare for a Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Cox will give you pre-operative instructions based on your specific procedure. Some common pre-surgery requirements are as follows:

  • You will be asked to get a full lab test and medical evaluation.
  • Certain medications will need to be stopped, and dosages of medications may need to be adjusted.
  • Drinking alcohol and smoking must be avoided for a time leading up to the procedure, because they can negatively affect the healing process.
  • Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements must be avoided for a time before the date of the procedure since they can cause complications.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost

The cost of a Breast Augmentation varies, because it is a highly individualized surgery tailored for each patient. The overall price may include anesthesia, operating room facilities, new breast implants, and other related expenses. Additional tests and imaging may also add to your total.

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, implant types, and procedures available, and how each will interact with your specific anatomy to impact the possible outcome. Cost and payment options for breast augmentation can also be discussed. 

Dr. Cox will work to ensure that you are fully informed and completely comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr. Cox prefers natural-looking results, but he does work with all patients to help 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.

Many patients choose to pair a breast lift with implants in a combination procedure known as a breast augmentation with lift. This results in a reduction in sagging, an increase in perkiness, and enlargement of the breasts. For patients specifically looking to lift sagging breasts, a breast lift without implants may be the better option.

Your Breast Implant Options

Finding the best breast implants for your aesthetic goals means learning about your options. Patients have several options in terms of type, size, profile, texture, and shape.

Type refers to an implant’s filling. Three options are available: saline breast implants, silicone breast implants, and gummy bear implants. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater, whereas silicone and gummy bear breast implants are filled with silicone gel.

Gummy bear breast implants are a very popular option. Gummy bear implants are a type of Natrelle implant manufactured by Allergan. They are filled with a highly cohesive gel, which serves to prevent leaks in the event of an implant rupture. Because the gel stays in the breast implant shell, the implants retain their form, which has earned them the name “form-stable implants.”

In terms of size, patients can benefit from large breast implants or small breast implants depending on their frame and body proportions. Profile refers to an implant’s degree of projection from the chest wall, and low, moderate, and high-profile breast implants are available.

Patients can choose between round and anatomical breast implants and between smooth and textured implants, and all of these characteristics offer their benefits and drawbacks. They will all be discussed during your breast augmentation consultation in Baton Rouge. We have a wide range of implant types and sizes on-site at all times.

Recovering from Breast Augmentation Surgery

Typical augmentation procedures are less than one hour. Recovery for most patients is very manageable and most patients return to casual daily (or limited work) activities within a week.

Swelling, bruising, and discomfort are common following breast augmentation surgery. A special surgical bra will need to be worn, which will provide additional support during the recovery period. Pain following breast augmentation surgery is minimal.

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.
