Breast Augmentation

Evansville, Henderson, Indiana

Who Should Have Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, can enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts using breast implants. This surgical procedure is chosen to improve a woman’s body contour if she feels her breasts are too small or to replace volume lost because of weight loss or pregnancy.

What is Involved in the Breast Augmentation Procedure?

In breast augmentation surgery in Evansville, IN, breast volume is increased by inserting a breast implant filled with either saline solution or silicone gel. All breast augmentation procedures at Zieg Plastic Surgery are performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zieg. The implant may be inserted above or below the pectoralis major muscle above the chest wall, depending on the current amount of breast tissue and desired goals. After the implants are inserted, the incisions are closed and covered with gauze bandages and a surgical bra.

What is the Normal Healing Time After Breast Augmentation?

Although you may feel tired and sore for a couple of days, you should be up and moving around within 24-48 hours after your plastic surgery. Your stitches will come out in a week to ten days during a followup appointment with Dr. Zieg, but you may have some swelling for three to five weeks.

Depending on the level of physical activity required, you may be able to return to work within a few days. Your breasts will be sensitive to direct stimulation for two to three weeks, but should be back to normal soon. Your surgical scars will be noticeable for several weeks but will gradually fade and may become hardly noticeable.

What Results Can I Expect?

Breast augmentation in Evansville will give your breasts a younger, fuller appearance. If the procedure is done as a reconstructive surgery after cancer treatment or a traumatic injury, the improved appearance can help improve your self-confidence.

For women with heavy or sagging breasts, Dr. Zieg may recommend a combination cosmetic surgery that includes a breast lift as well as augmentation. A breast lift helps create a youthful, perky appearance to breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the nipple, in addition to breast enhancement through the use of implants.

I am so surprised at how happy I am with my body now! Dr. Zieg and Julie told me my breasts would not be perfectly symmetrical after the augmentation (they were not near symmetrical before), but some corrections would be made to be closer in symmetry. They were so wrong! He did such an amazing job. To the human eye, they are PERFECT! If I ever decide to have any other work done, I will not go anywhere else.

I wish I had found them sooner.  Dr. Zieg totally reconstructed a botched job I received from another doctor. I couldn't be more pleased with the job Dr. Zieg did for me. Their in-office procedures are top-notch also. By far the best doctor and staff I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with.
