Breast augmentation is a fairly common cosmetic procedure among women. There are plenty of reasons why women choose to bolster the appearance of their breasts. For instance, they may not be satisfied with the way they look after weight loss or pregnancy. Other women may want their breasts to have a more symmetrical appearance. In some cases, breast augmentation can help correct physical malformations that happen due to genetics or any other number of reasons. Regardless of the reason, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Schneider of Artisan Plastic Surgery, is ready to assist you with breast augmentation at their Joliet office.

During the consultation, Dr. Schneider will not only inform you about the breast augmentation process, but will also tell you about your available options and help address any concerns you may have about the procedure. To ensure that your expectations are met, Dr. Schneider will go through your choices so you have an idea of what will work best for you.
What is the breast augmentation surgery process?
The consultation process will take care of the implant selection, sizing and the overall surgical approach. The surgery itself is an outpatient procedure that takes only one to two hours under general anesthesia. During the surgery, incisions are made under the breasts or around the lower area of the areola. These incisions are kept as small and as inconspicuous as possible, to aid healing and promote natural concealment. The implant is guided through the incision and placed beneath the nipple or underneath the muscle. Dr. Schneider will position the implant to ensure proper placement and look.
Patient safety is critical to the breast augmentation process. Dr. Schneider only uses FDA-approved breast implants of the highest quality to ensure your safety throughout the process and beyond. Breast implants may consist of an elastic silicone gel filled with a saline solution or a cohesive silicone gel. Patients recover quickly with ordinary work possible within only a week. Most patients can begin more strenuous activities in less than six weeks.
