Breast Augmentation in Columbus

Breast augmentation, commonly referred to as a boob job, is a surgical procedure that aims to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. This popular cosmetic surgery is designed to provide women who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts with the option to achieve their desired breast size and shape. Dr. Brian Dorner, a board-certified plastic surgeon at Dorner Plastic Surgery and Medspa, has extensive experience in performing breast augmentation surgeries in Columbus, Ohio. During your consultation with Dr. Dorner, he will carefully listen to your concerns and goals and educate you about the various options available to help you achieve your desired breast appearance.

Breast Implant Options

During your consultation with Dr. Dorner, the appropriate breast implant will be recommended based on your unique body frame and aesthetic objectives. Breast implants are available in different sizes and shapes, and the choice will depend on your desired outcome. The two primary types of breast implants are saline and silicone, both of which are FDA-approved. Silicone implants are the most common at Dorner Plastic Surgery and Medspa and provide the most natural result (and they are all “gummy bear” implants at this stage), although saline is also offered for those who would prefer that style of implant Additional options include shaped implants and fat transfer. Apart from the type of implant selected, there are other important factors to consider, such as implant size, shape, and profile.

Size, Shape, and Profile of Breast Implants

  • Implant Size: The size of breast implants is measured in cubic centimeters (CCs) of silicone or saline. Dr. Dorner will consider factors such as your existing breast tissue and your desired breast size when determining the appropriate implant size. During surgery, it is common for Dr. Dorner to temporarily use several implants to determine the best fit.
  • Implant Shape: Breast implants come in two primary shapes: round and teardrop. While both shapes have their uses, many patients prefer round implants because they tend give the breast more fullness .
  • Implant Profile: The implant profile refers to the projection of the breast. It determines how far the breast extends from the chest wall when viewed from the side. Common profiles include low, low moderate, moderate, full, or extra full. The choice of profile depends on the desired aesthetic result. Most patients prefer moderate, full, or extra full to give more pop and volume to the breast.

Ideal Candidates

The decision to undergo breast enhancement surgery in Columbus is a personal one. If you are considering this procedure, it’s crucial to have clear motivations. Ideal candidates for breast augmentation should be in good physical health, have fully developed breasts, and be at the appropriate age for breast implants. If you are unhappy with the shape of your breasts due to factors such as deflation or changes following pregnancy or weight loss, breast augmentation surgery can help restore volume and improve symmetry. Breast augmentation can also be a suitable option for individuals who lack natural breast tissue or have a desire for a fuller breast appearance.

Surgical Technique

The surgical technique for breast augmentation involves creating an incision through which the breast implant is inserted. The incision can be made in various locations, including around the areola (periareolar incision), within the breast crease (inframammary incision), or in the armpit (transaxillary incision). The choice of incision location is determined based on factors such as implant type, patient preference, and Dr. Dorner’s expertise.

Once the incision is made, the breast implant is carefully positioned within a pocket created either behind the breast tissue (subglandular placement) or beneath the chest muscle (submuscular placement). Implants placed below the pectoral muscle give a more natural upper pole appearance and is generally preferred in thin patients.  Implants placed above the pectoral muscle give more upper pole fullness which most patients appreciate along with quicker recovery and no implant motion associated with muscle contraction. Dr. Dorner will work closely with you to determine the most appropriate placement for your unique needs and goals.

What to Expect with Breast Implants

Breast augmentation surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. After the incision is made, the breast implant is inserted into its designated position, and the incision is closed using sutures or surgical adhesive. Patients are closely monitored during the initial recovery period before being discharged.

You will be provided with a compression bra to minimize swelling and promote proper healing. Over the next few days, swelling and bruising will gradually subside, allowing your breasts to settle into their new shape and size. Most patients can return to their normal activities within the first week, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for approximately 6 to 8 weeks.

Breast augmentation surgery in Columbus aims to produce fuller, shapelier breast whether looking for a completely natural look or a more augmented look, Dr. Dorner has the skill to guide you and provide you with the best option for your needs and desires. One size breast does not fit all! For many patients, this procedure can be life-changing, significantly boosting self-confidence and body image.

Do I Need a Breast Lift or Augmentation?

Your treatment plan may involve breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both, depending on your specific needs and goals. A breast lift addresses issues such as excess skin and breast sagging, improving breast position. Breast augmentation, on the other hand, focuses on enhancing breast size and shape. During your consultation with Dr. Dorner, he will carefully listen to your objectives and explain the most suitable treatment options for you. In many cases, a combination of breast augmentation and a breast lift is part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Can I Breast Feed with Implants?

If you have the desire to breastfeed after breast augmentation, it’s crucial to inform Dr. Dorner during your consultation. In most cases, breastfeeding is possible after breast augmentation with the appropriate surgical technique and implant placement. However, it’s essential to understand that pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect your surgical results, so it’s advisable to consider breast augmentation after you’ve completed your family planning.

Can I Have My Implants Removed?

At some point, you may decide to replace or remove your breast implants. If this becomes a consideration, Dr. Dorner can perform breast revision surgery. During this procedure, your current implants can be replaced with new ones or simply removed. If you choose to have your implants removed, you may also require excess skin removal, as larger implants can stretch the skin. If you have any questions or concerns after your breast augmentation surgery, don’t hesitate to schedule an appointment at Dorner Plastic Surgery to discuss your options.

Do Implants Cause Breast Cancer?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating a potential link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), which is not breast cancer but a cancer of the immune cells. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), breast implant-related ALCL is extremely rare and easily treatable when detected early. Dr. Dorner advises all patients with breast implants to undergo regular screenings for breast cancer. If you notice any concerns, such as swelling or other visible changes, you should contact Dorner Plastic Surgery.
