Breast augmentation | emmett plastic surgery | lone tree co | emmett plastic surgeryNot every woman is happy with the appearance of their breasts. Plastic surgeons, such as Dr. Jennifer Emmett of Emmett Plastic Surgery in Lone Tree, Colorado, is a professional who can work with patients to help them design breasts that are more attractive and more in line with how patients feel. Our professionals are here to guide women through the process of breast augmentation and determine if they are right for the procedure.

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?

The breast augmentation procedure is often best for women who are over the age of 18 years old and are unhappy with the size, shape, or overall appearance of their breasts. We encourage patients to be physically healthy, have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved with treatment, and be psychologically stable. Patients should be completing this procedure for themselves and not to fulfill the needs or desires of anyone else.

What is performed during breast augmentation?

In most cases, breast augmentation involves the use of saline or silicone breast implants to increase the size and shape of the breast. The size chosen by the patient will be determined based on the final results they desire and the size needed to make a noticeable change. The implant is inserted into the breasts through incisions that are planned to reduce the appearance of scarring as much as possible. The entire procedure is done with proper anesthetics and sedation to ensure the patient is comfortable through the process.

How long is recovery following breast augmentation procedures?

It is important that patients speak to Dr. Jennifer Emmett regarding the downtime and recovery necessary for proper healing. When patients comply with their aftercare instructions, they will reduce their risk of developing an infection and will ensure proper healing and minimal scarring. Patients are advised to schedule a follow-up appointment to allow the doctor to monitor the healing process.
