Breast Augmentation in Evansville and Jasper, IN

Many women are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts because they have a small anatomy or have experienced a decrease in breast tissue due to weight loss or fluctuating hormones. There is little these women can do to increase the size of their breasts naturally, which is why many elect to have a breast augmentation or “boob job.” A breast augmentation performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Flannagan at Flannagan Plastic Surgery could be the solution for those in Southern Indiana, Northern Kentucky, and Illinois, who want to permanently increase their bust size.

What is a Breast Augmentation Procedure?

A breast augmentation involves adding implants to increase the size of the breasts, alter their shape, or change the way in which they protrude from the body. Implants come in numerous sizes and shapes and are filled with either a saline or silicone gel solution. Once inserted, they provide immediate, permanent results.

A breast augmentation or “boob job” is performed under general anesthesia, allowing you to sleep comfortably during the surgery. Breast implants are placed in one of two locations:

  • Submuscular, which is behind the pectoral muscle
  • Subglandular, or on top of the pectoral muscle but behind the breast gland

Your placement will depend on the amount of breast and muscle tissue available, size and type of implants, and a number of other factors. Dr. Flannagan will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type of placement with you during your consultation.

Benefits of a Breast Augmentation

Breast implants are not just for models or celebrities, as everyday women just like you are now choosing them more often than ever. One reason is that today’s implants can provide you with more natural-looking results. As such, you may want to consider them if you have lost breast volume and wish to have fuller breasts once again.

Advances in surgical techniques also make scarring less noticeable. Any scars you do experience can normally be hidden underneath your bra or a swimsuit.

Elements of a Breast Augmentation Procedure

Your breast augmentation procedure actually begins during your consultation, when you will select the size and type of implant for your breast augmentation. Next, measurements and photographs are taken to help Dr. Flannagan better tailor his surgical procedure to meet your needs.

On the day of your procedure, your breasts may be marked with a marker to help guide Dr. Flannagan in making his incisions.  General anesthesia is then administered so that the procedure can be performed. Afterward, you will spend approximately one to two hours in the recovery room before being released to home.

If you’ve considered these problems with your own breasts, breast augmentation may be the solution you need.  However, candidacy for a cosmetic procedure should never be determined online. At your personal consultation, Dr. Flannagan will determine the best course of action and individualized treatment for you. If he is confident that breast augmentation will be a positive, affirming experience for you, he will recommend the procedure. Dr. Flannagan never recommends treatment if he is not certain of the benefits it will afford the patient.

Why Do Women Have Breast Augmentation?

Despite being medically and physically eligible for the procedure, it’s important that you determine your own personal candidacy, as well. When considering your own choices about breast augmentation, it can be helpful to learn why other women elect to get their breasts augmented.
