What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is plastic surgery in which your surgeon uses breast implants or fat injections from other areas of your body to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. 

Dr. Lonergan also offers the option for a breast lift to make sagging breasts perkier. He uses the latest advances in technologies and procedures to perfect your results.

What are the benefits of breast augmentation?

The advantages associated with breast augmentation at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery of Delaware include breasts that are:

  • Larger
  • Fuller
  • Symmetrical 
  • Lifted
  • Proportional
  • Natural-looking
  • Rounder
  • Perkier

The procedure helps patients look and feel their best, gaining the confidence they deserve. The procedure is common among women with smaller breasts, especially those who have finished having children and breastfeeding.

You help Dr. Lonergan choose the size, shape, and overall appearance of your new breasts and which type of breast augmentation surgery is best for your needs. 

Is breast augmentation right for me?

If you’re healthy but unhappy with the size and overall appearance of your breasts, breast augmentation may be the solution for you.

To determine which procedure is best, Dr. Lonergan reviews your medical history, examines your breasts, and discusses your desired results. If you’re a candidate for saline or silicone breast implants, you choose their size and shape.

Dr. Lonergan also offers breast lifts, breast implant replacement, and breast reduction surgery. He can complete breast augmentation at the same time as a breast lift.

How should I prepare for breast augmentation?

Follow your pre-surgery instructions closely. Dr. Lonergan may ask you to stop taking certain medicines or dietary supplements, avoid food and drink the morning of surgery, undergo lab testing and a mammogram, and make arrangements for a family member or friend to drive you home after the procedure.

What happens during the procedure?

Before surgery, you receive general anesthesia to help you sleep. Dr. Lonergan makes incisions, inserts breast implants if needed, and may alter breast tissues to lift the breasts before closing the incisions.

If you’re a candidate for fat transfer, he uses liposuction to extract excess fat cells from other areas of your body and injects it into your breasts to enhance their volume and shape.

What should I expect after breast augmentation?

After the procedure, you rest in a recovery area before a family member or friend drives you home. Take medications as directed, get plenty of rest, and wear a special bra or bandage as instructed during the healing process. Avoid vigorous activity until given the OK, and attend follow-up visits with Dr. Lonergan as scheduled to ensure your recovery goes as planned.
