Breast Augmentation Consultation
During your consultation, we will discuss your goals, expectations, motivations, and desired outcome. We'll show you around our brand-new facility, and you'll meet the staff that will be by your side throughout the process.
Dr. Banker will discuss your procedure options with you and will work with you to make sure your needs are met. We'll talk about what to do before surgery, and what you can expect on the day of your augmentation. There is no one-size-fits-all answer for augmentation, as each patient has unique goals and each case is very different.
We perform your surgery right here at Luxe in our high-end surgical suites, instead of making you go to an unfamiliar surgery center for your procedure. Our state-of-the-art facility is your luxury alternative to traditional augmentation surgery. Consultations are only $100, and we apply that money toward your augmentation.
Saline implants are a bit less expensive than silicone, and are slightly more common for that reason. Saline implants are inserted empty, and filled with saline solution after placement, so they require a smaller incision than a similar size silicone implant. Saline gives a natural feel, and comes in virtually any size and profile. Saline and silicone are both completely safe.
Silicone gives a slightly more natural feel because it is closer in density and texture to your own body tissue. This is most important for patients with less natural breast tissue. Silicone implants are a bit more expensive, but come with free Botox or Latisse for both you and a friend.
Gummy Bear implants are a nickname given to the newest generation of highly-cohesive silicone implants, and offer a bit more firmness. They were originally used for reconstruction, but are now offered in all sizes for augmentation. Gummy Bear implants can eliminate the rippling or folding that may occur with some patients using large implants due to the firmer texture.
Your implant will have a diameter and a projection (the two measurements). The diameter is based on measurements of your body and existing tissue, and is carefully selected to fit your profile correctly. The projection is the height of the implant when it is flat on a surface, and is the measure of how far out your implant will project from your breast plate. Projection ranges from low (barely noticeable) to extra high (very obvious). We'll help you select the projection to best meet your desired outcome.
Awake Breast Augmentation
Awake Breast Augmentation gives you an alternative to general anesthesia for your breast augmentation procedure. Through the use of local anesthesia (sometimes called "twilight anesthesia"), we can reduce the cost, recovery time, discomfort, and risk normally associated with traditional breast augmentation procedures.
This type of anesthesia is common for many other types of surgeries, and it is now common to place implants without "going under" or having to go to a hospital. Don't worry, you won't see or hear anything unless you want to. You'll just watch a movie while we place the implants, and you'll be done before you know we started.
Until recently, the closest facility performing this advanced procedure was in Columbus, and an overnight trip was likely required. Now, Northwest Ohio has a local option for Awake Breast Augmentation without the risks and side effects of general anesthesia.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Your procedure will last 1-2 hours, and is a very simple surgery. The implant is placed between the breast muscle and the breast plate, in what is referred to as a sub-pectoral or "under the muscle" placement. After it is placed, the implant is filled to the selected size (if saline) and sealed. The small incision used for the surgery is then sutured.
You'll need to wear a compression top for 1-2 weeks, and we will provide one that is custom fit for your body and augmentation. This ensures that you do not have fluid build-up around the implant, and that that implant pocket can heal properly. It's fine to take it off for showers or short periods, but we encourage you to use it as much as you can.
We ask that you avoid any strenuous activity for several weeks after your augmentation. You should avoid things like working out, lifting heavy items, running, and contact sports. Your implant size and body type will determine the exact amount of time that is required before returning to these activities. We closely monitor your progress during healing so that you have an accurate and correct timeline for recovery.
Breast Augmentation Before and After
Each patient is unique, and your outcome may vary from that of another patient with similar measurements and implant size for many reasons. It is better to have an idea of the general look or style that you like, as opposed to copying the implant choice of someone similar in size.
Don't worry about the patient stats or implant size when looking at pictures. A 400cc implant is huge on a patient that is 5' tall, but small on a patient that is 6' tall, so don't get caught up in the numbers. You just want an idea of the kind of height and projection that would be your ideal outcome.
We do not publish pictures of our patients online, as we protect our patient privacy as much as possible. We invite you to come in for a consultation so we can go over our patient pictures with you, but we do not allow any to be taken home (except your own). We hope you can understand our commitment to your patient privacy and safety.
