How Will Dr. Sleightholm Perform a Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation is performed to enhance your breasts’ shape and enlarge their size. During the procedure, Dr. Sleightholm will make a small incision in the breast – usually just under the nipple or below the breast fold – before placing an implant under the breast tissue or underlying muscle.
Dr. Sleightholm will use either saline or silicone implants, whichever type will be best for your body.
After the procedure, most patients are comfortable moving around within a few hours. Dr. Sleightholm will recommend you wear a surgical bra to support your healing breasts and reduce tenderness. You should also refrain from strenuous exercise for 6-8 weeks. Follow Dr. Sleightholm’s advice to guarantee optimal healing.
