Breast Augmentation in Baltimore, MD
Approximately 75% of women in the United States are unhappy with their breasts. In Baltimore, MD, and surrounding communities, women trust the experience and expertise of double board certified and fellowship-trained plastic surgeon Dr. Steven J. Rottman to improve their breasts and feel better about their bodies.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is currently the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, and recovery time has lessened significantly as medical science has made huge strides over the past few decades. The size and shape of the breasts can be altered through the use of either a saline or silicone implant placed beneath existing tissue, giving the appearance of the perfect breasts nature rarely bestows upon any woman. For those experiencing issues with sagging due to age, nursing, or significant weight loss, a lift can be performed simultaneously, maximizing the beauty of the results.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation is a popular elective procedure that can increase the size, enhance the shape, or improve the symmetry of a woman’s breasts and is usually accomplished through the surgical placement of saline or silicone breast implants. Many different options are available to meet each patient’s individual needs, including different implant sizes and shapes and incision techniques. The goal of breast augmentation is to create natural-looking breasts. You may also consider combining a breast lift with augmentation if your breasts sag.
Women rely on Dr. Rottman to improve the size and shape of their breasts while maintaining a natural appearance and proper proportions. The before and after pictures of some of our breast augmentation patients show you what Dr. Rottman achieves with the surgery.
How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Saline or silicone-gel breast implants are inserted through a short incision and placed behind the breast tissue. Incision sites include the crease at the bottom of the breast, around the areola, or in the underarm. Scars fade over time and become minimally noticeable. The implant is either placed under the chest muscle or between the chest muscle and breast tissue. The decision is made based on the patient’s anatomy, as well as the type and size of the implant chosen.
Rottman Plastic Surgery is excited to offer our patients Natrelle, Mentor, and Sientra breast implants. With over 140 styles to choose from, you can feel confident that your breast augmentation will give you natural-looking breasts. As a preferred Natrelle surgeon, Dr. Rottman is able to advise you as to the different cosmetic outcomes that each style of Natrelle implants will offer you.
Preparing for Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery requires general anesthesia, and Dr. Rottman may order blood work and other tests to ensure you are able to undergo the procedure. He may also request your medical records from your physician. During your consultation he explains the details of your breast augmentation surgery, including any special instructions for before and after the procedure.
Recovery from Breast Augmentation
The healing process varies for each patient. Full recovery generally takes about a week or two and most patients are typically able to be up and about after 24 hours. You will be able to see the results of your breast augmentation immediately, and as the swelling and bruising subside, your new look will become even more apparent. During the months following your procedure, the incision marks will gradually fade, becoming virtually unnoticeable.
