Breast Augmentation

Women choose to augment their breasts for many different reasons.   At Weiler Plastic Surgery, women from Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Hammond and New Orleans, Louisiana often seek our plastic surgeons’ expertise when considering breast augmentation or implants.  Breast augmentation is designed to uplift and enhance the breasts. For patients who are looking to increase the size or appearance of their breasts, a breast augmentation procedure can be an excellent option. A breast augmentation can also fill a woman’s breast that has become deflated after weight loss or childbirth, providing an enhanced appearance.* This cosmetic surgery will provide you with a natural look to enhance your body image and overall self-confidence. Dr. Weiler or Dr. Daugherty will work with you to help you achieve the look and feel that you’ve always wanted.*

You don’t have to settle for breasts that droop or deflate. In fact, you can improve your self-confidence and image to portray the self that you want others to see, the one that you see on the inside. A breast augmentation can easily improve the look of your breasts at any point in your life. With minimal downtime, and refined surgical techniques, this procedure is an excellent option for women looking for improved breasts. Simply schedule a consultation to see what the best approach is in order to get the look and feel that you desire from Weiler Plastic Surgery.

Incision Placement

Dr. Weiler or Dr. Daugherty place the implants below the chest muscle through a small incision approximately 4 cm long. The incision for a breast augmentation is placed under the fold of the breast and hides very well under swimsuits and undergarments. Within a few months the scar is virtually invisible.*

Your Surgical Experience

This procedure is performed at Weiler Plastic Surgery under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Patients will need someone to drive them home after surgery and stay with them for a day or two. After the procedure, patients are placed in a bra garment that is to be worn at all times for six weeks.

Are You A Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

  • Small or asymmetrical breasts
  • Pregnancy, weight loss, or aging has affected the size and shape of your breasts
  • You desire a better proportioned or more appealing figure
  • You’re looking for cosmetic improvements after breast reconstruction

The Consultation Process

One of our plastic surgeons and their office staff will assist in making your surgical experience as easy and comfortable as possible. You will be able to meet with Dr. Weiler, Dr. Daugherty, or one of their Physician Assistants to discuss your areas of concern and goals for your breast surgery. A physical exam will be done to assess your breasts and you will be given a recommendation for the most effective procedure to meet and exceed your expressed goals, as well as alternative treatments.* At Weiler Plastic Surgery, we’d like for you to take as much time as you need to have all of your questions answered by the professionals. Your satisfaction, desires, and goals are our primary concern.

What to Expect After Surgery

We like to see our patients back in the office one to two days after surgery. At this time, dressings are removed and the incisions are assessed. Questions or concerns will be addressed as well and further instructions reviewed for optimal recovery. After the initial visit, you will be allowed to go home and shower. Patients will be seen at a week and again at two weeks post-operatively, at which time sutures will be removed if they are healing well. You should expect some swelling and bruising initially that will subside within a few weeks. Nipple sensation and skin sensitivity vary depending on the patient, but will return to normal over time.* Walking around after your surgery is very important to promote blood flow and decrease swelling.

Post-Op Activity Restrictions

Typical patients’ recovery after a breast augementation procedure are variable, but in general most patients are able to return to work within five to seven days and are back to normal activities within two to three weeks.* Strenuous activity is to be avoided for several weeks following the surgery with patients lifting no more than 10 pounds for the first two weeks. At six weeks most patients are able to resume normal activity and exercise with no restrictions.
