Breast implant before and after pictures demonstrate the natural enhancement that women across the country are enjoying with this procedure. Of course, as with any cosmetic surgery, results may vary. The best way to ensure optimal outcomes is by selecting a skilled and experienced surgeon to perform this technique sensitive procedure.
*individual results may vary
Our surgeons, Dr. Epstein and Dr. Martin, incorporate the latest advancements in both technique and technology to provide a surgery that is the safest, least invasive, and most suited to deliver superior results. Breast implants in Chicago are done as outpatient procedures and performed under general anesthesia, meaning patients are asleep for the procedure but can go home the same day. During the surgery, Dr. Epstein or Dr. Martin will insert the breast implant through a small incision.
The placement and size of the incision may vary depending on the individual anatomy and preference, but is typically placed under the breast, as the scar is hidden by the natural breast fold. The implant may be placed into a pocket below the chest muscle, again a decision made with consideration of patient preference. After the surgery, your surgeon, Dr. Epstein or Dr. Martin, will suture the incision and places a skin adhesive over the incision. A supportive garment or bra is then worn until the follow up clinic appointment
After the surgery, you will be able to walk out of the recovery area. However, you will need an adult to drive you home and you may prefer to have assistance for the first 24 hours. While swelling or soreness may last for a few days, you may be able to return to work within a few days depending on the job activity requirements. You will be directed to wear a support garment and avoid strenuous physical exertion for at least the first few weeks after your surgery.
You will notice larger, fuller breasts immediately after your surgery. However, final results will not be apparent until the initial swelling resolves, which can take several weeks. The expected duration of breast implant appearance depends on the type of implant selected and on individual skin characteristics, which either Dr. Epstein or Dr. Martin will review with you at the time of your visit.
Breast implants differ in size, shape, and material. Both silicone and saline-filled implants have unique characteristics.
Silicone is gelatinous and thick, better resembling the appearance and feel of breast tissue compared to saline. Saline is saltwater, and is thinner and less gummy than silicone, resulting in a slightly firmer feel with more potential to wrinkle.
A minimum age of 22 is required for silicone implants due to FDA regulations.
Breast augmentation is FDA-approved and considered a safe procedure. However, the procedure comes with the standard risks of any cosmetic surgery. These risks will be discussed in detail during your consultation.
