Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Breast augmentation is easily one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world, and Dr. Markelov has a vast amount of experience, when it comes to creating the results of his patients’ dreams. During your consultation, he’ll talk you through everything you might need to know about the procedure, and its recovery process, enabling you to make the most informed decision possible.

If you’re in the Wausau or Stevens Point areas, you’re likely a great candidate for breast augmentation at Elevé Plastic Surgery if you:

  • Are in adequate health
  • Are at or near your ideal weight
  • Have breasts that have developed fully
  • Meet the age requirements
  • Would like to increase your bust size
  • Have experienced a decrease in size

Understanding Breast Implants

Your breast implants will consist of two main components, an outer shell and the liquid that goes inside the shell giving the breast its shape and volume.  Silicone implants are more widely used and tend to offer a more natural feel, which many patients find preferable.  During the consultation, we will work together to pick out the shape and type of implant that is right for you.

These are some of the options you’ll have available to you, when it comes to your breast augmentation procedure:

  • You can decide on the size of your implant by adjusting the amount of filler that gets injected into it. These are usually measured in CCs, or cubic centimeters.
  • There are different types of shape that you’ll be able to choose from, enabling you to be sure that your bust is proportionate to the rest of your curves and bodily features.
  • Silicone implants are available to patients 22 years and up, while saline implants are available to patients 18 and older.
  • Reconstructive breast implant surgery, however, can be considered for younger patients.
  • We can revise previously-performed implant surgeries, if your results were less than satisfactory.

What Our Patients Are Asking

Take a look below to see some of the most frequently asked questions about breast augmentation surgery. If you still have questions, and don’t see an answer for you down below, we want to hear from you! Reach out and set up an appointment, so we can tell you everything you need to know.

When will I be able to enjoy my results?

Almost immediately! While you’ll be able to see a change in your breasts as soon as you return home from surgery, it’s important to remember that there will be a bit of swelling present, and that it will take a few weeks for this swelling to subside completely. Once it does, you’ll be able to enjoy your results, permanently.

Is breast augmentation safe?

Breast augmentation carries with it the same minor risks that come along with any invasive surgical procedure, but you can effectively mitigate your exposure to those risks by choosing a double board certified surgeon like Dr. Alexey Markelov. During your consultation, he’ll talk you through all the risks, and explain the steps he takes to take care that they’re minimized for your procedure.

Will breast augmentation leave scars?

This procedure does leave scars, but Dr. Markelov has learned, over the years, how to place them in areas that make them incredibly difficult to notice. They’ll be more noticeable just after your surgery, but will fade away as the weeks and months go by, becoming harder and harder to spot.

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Given that breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure, you’ll be able to return home the very same day. During your preoperative consultations, Dr. Markelov will go over each and every detail that relates to your procedure, including important aspects like incision placement, and so forth.

The surgery itself is fairly simple, with an incision being made and the implant being placed through said incision. This procedure typically generates minimal scarring, and any scarring that is present is often quite difficult for the casual observer to notice in any way.

Recovering from Breast Augmentation

Your recovery period will be relatively easy, with the first two to three days seeing you at your most tired and sore. After that, you’ll start feeling progressively better and better, and we’ll prescribe medication to help you manage the pain, as well as fitting you with a compression bra to help with the swelling.

You’ll likely experience intermittent discomfort as the swelling goes down during the first week or so, and your sutures (if used) will be removed within seven to 10 days of your procedure. We’ll make sure to give you specific instructions in terms of things like activity levels and other aftercare instructions.

Since each surgery is different, there’s no standard-issue recovery process that follows a breast augmentation. The recovery you experience will vary based on your body type, activity levels, implant type, implant size, and so forth. This is why we take care to work with our patients, and let them know just what to expect.

If you think a breast augmentation is the right choice for you, we want to hear from you! Elevé Plastic Surgery is here for patients in Stevens Point, Wausau, and beyond, and we’re ready to help you enjoy the bust you’ve been dreaming of. Reach out and set up your consultation to learn more about what Dr. Markelov and his incredible surgical team can do for you today!
