Planning Your Treatment

The first step toward an enhanced bustline is the initial consultation. Dr. Hermann will first sit down with you to discuss your goals and desires. He can also help you understand what you can reasonably expect from augmentation surgery and assess your candidacy for the procedure.

Good candidates for breast augmentation are in good overall health and do not smoke, as smoking can hinder recovery. Dr. Hermann will also assess whether augmentation can realistically address your concerns. In some cases, he may recommend an alternative procedure, such as a breast lift.

To qualify for this treatment, it is essential that:

  • Your breasts are fully developed.
  • You are not pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • You are able to take sufficient time off for recovery.

If Dr. Hermann determines an augmentation is right for you, he will discuss the differences between silicone and saline implants. He can also describe the available placement techniques, including the type and location of incisions he will make, as well as the anticipated scarring. 

Using our advanced BodyLogic® system, Dr. Hermann can then give you a preview of the results you might anticipate. He can show you how different implant sizes, shapes, and profiles will look on you, so that you can pick the implant that will provide the effect you desire.

How to Prepare for Breast Augmentation

Before the day of your surgery, you will be provided with a detailed list of pre- and post-operative instructions. These recommendations will be tailored to your specific needs and should be followed closely to ensure a comfortable and successful recovery.

There are a few general guidelines that will help prepare you for your breast augmentation procedure. Before your surgery:

  • Stop taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, for 10 days prior to your procedure. These drugs can make the surgery more dangerous and increase your risk for bleeding.
  • Do not smoke for a full two months before your breast augmentation procedure. Tobacco use impedes the body’s natural healing process.
  • Go to the pharmacy and pick up all prescription medications in advance so you will not have to run errands the day of your procedure.
  • Arrange for a trusted family member or friend to drive you to and from our office the day of your procedure. They should also be able to stay with you for the first one to three days as you begin the recovery process.
  • Plan to wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes that can be removed and replaced easily.

What to Expect during Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia so that you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. As with all of Dr. Hermann's procedures, he will personally perform all steps of your augmentation, from start to finish.

Dr. Hermann is trained in advanced techniques to provide the most natural-looking results possible.

After administering sedation, Dr. Hermann will make a conservative incision and expertly position the implant. If you choose saline instead of silicone, he will insert a deflated implant and add saline once it is securely in place. Then, he will close the incision with sutures and place a dressing. Once you wake up, we will keep you in the office for about an hour to monitor your condition, after which you will be free to go home and rest. During the next few weeks, our team is available to guide you through your recovery.  

Weighing Benefits and Risks

The advancements in implants and placement techniques have made breast augmentations safer and more natural-looking than ever. Some of the many reasons to choose this procedure include:

  • Better-fitting clothing
  • Confidence to wear a broader range of outfits
  • A more proportional figure
  • Improved body image and self-esteem

Like all surgical procedures, there are certain risks involved with breast augmentation. Some of these include:

Capsular Contracture

Any time a foreign object is placed in the body, scar tissue forms around it. This scar tissue, called a capsule, naturally forms around the implant following breast augmentation. However, in some cases, this capsule contracts and hardens, resulting in discomfort and a distorted appearance. The only way to fully address capsular contracture is to undergo a capsulectomy, a procedure in which the entire implant and associated scar tissue is removed.

Rippling

If the breast implant becomes folded or wrinkled, it can cause a rippling appearance on the surface of the breast. Should this occur, your surgeon may recommend replacing your existing implants with either silicone-gel or smooth-surface alternatives. 

Infection

As with all surgical treatments, infection is a possible complication. If you run a fever or notice redness, inflammation, or tenderness, you could have an infection. Depending on the cause of infection, your surgeon may prescribe a round of oral antibiotics or recommend removing the implant until the infection is under control.

Rupture

When a saline implant ruptures, it is immediately noticeable and the saline is simply absorbed into the body. If a silicone implant ruptures, it is not always evident right away. However, patients may develop symptoms such as pain, swelling, or changes in the shape of the breast. Revision surgery is necessary to correct these issues.

Numb or Sensitive Nipples

Some degree of numbness or sensitivity is to be expected following breast augmentation. In most cases, these side effects diminish within a few months. However, it is possible for patients to experience prolonged sensitivity or numbness. Some individuals state that they experienced these issues for up to five years after treatment.

Breast Augmentation and Pregnancy

Many patients decide to pursue this procedure after having a baby to restore their breasts to their original shape and form. It is also important to note that most women will still be able to breastfeed successfully following breast augmentation. In some cases, however, implants can contribute to inadequate breast milk production. To minimize this risk, choose a cosmetic surgeon who specializes in breast procedures.
