Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation, although very common and routine, is still a surgical procedure. The commitment to undergo a breast enlargement should therefore be made only after you have seriously considered all the advantages and disadvantages, and then made an informed decision.

To be able to make this decision, you need to understand what the surgery involves, and what to expect after the surgery. There are many very informative sites online that help patients towards making this decision. Unfortunately, there are also many sites that scare patients with sensational headlines and content.

The following websites are reliable sources of information on Breast Augmentation surgery and outcomes:

  1. RealSelf.com – a website where real patients ask questions, post their stories, and board certified Plastic Surgeons answer questions
  2. American Society of Plastic Surgeons – the official site of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons
  3. American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery – the official site of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons

Understand Your Options in Breast Augmentation

There are a number of choices that you will need to remake in order to choose a suitable Breast Augmentation procedure for your requirements. Dr. Jugenburg will guide you through this process and help you make the decision based on what will most enhance your body.

Dr. Jugenburg is experienced in all types of breast enlargement and is therefore comfortable performing any technique that he believes will give you the best possible result. The decision on what is best for your breasts has to do with your existing anatomy and body proportions.

Your options include:

  1. Silicone (also known as Cohesive Gel or Gummy Bear) implants vs. Saline (salt water) breast implants
  2. Round breast implants vs. Shaped (also known as Anatomic or Teardrop) breast implants
  3. Smooth breast implants vs. Textured breast implants
  4. Implant under the muscle vs. Implant over the muscle (in both cases the implant sits under the breast, not inside the breast)
  5. Incision in the Breast Fold (Infra-Mammary) vs. Around the Areola (Peri-Aerolar) vs. Through the Armpit (Trans-Axillary)

Pictures

Search the Internet or our before and after gallery for images of women with breast implants in order get a better understanding of what looks you like and what you do not like. (Search for terms such as: boob job photos and breast implant before and after pictures.) There are many bad results out there, so do not worry if you see something that you think is unattractive. Breast Augmentation is perceived as an easy surgery and many doctors who are not Plastic Surgeons (such as family doctors, emergency doctors and gynaecologists) are performing these procedures.

The results are not always ideal. While no surgeon can ever guarantee you perfect results, a properly trained Plastic Surgeon is more likely to be able to give you great results, and if needed, correct any potential problems.

It would be ideal if you could bring with you to the consultation examples from the Internet of both what you like and what you do not. If appropriate and to save having to print them out, you can instead email these images to us at [email protected] prior to your consultation.

When looking at pictures of other women’s breasts, you should consider these features:

  1. Size – how big (relative to the chest/body) do you like them to be? Should they be proportio nal to the chest? Should the breast implants be so big that they protrude significantly forward or not?
  2. Shape – do you prefer a round, bubbly push-up bra appearance or a more subtle breast shape?

Look at Your Own Breasts

Look at yourself in the mirror. You need to understand that every woman is different and that your existing breast size, shape and position will significantly influence the appearance of your body after Breast Augmentation. Some women have breasts that sit far apart, for example. In these women, a proper breast enlargement will require that the breast implants are still placed behind the breasts, even if the breasts are notably apart. If Dr. Jugenburg were otherwise to attempt to place the breast implants close together in an effort to achieve a desired cleavage, the natural breasts would sit more off to the side, and the result would be a very unnatural look.

When looking at yourself, also note that your right and left breasts are not identical. Nobody is perfectly symmetrical, and you are not an exception to this rule. Typically, right and left breasts differ in size, position, orientation, and the size and shape of the nipples. Some women have very slight asymmetry, while in others this asymmetry is more pronounced. During your consultation, Dr. Jugenburg will discuss this with you and explain what can be done to improve your asymmetry.

Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

Dr. Jugenburg is a highly experienced plastic surgeon who always takes the time to get to know his patients and their needs before committing to any kind of surgery.

The doctor will guide you through the whole breast augmentation process: from the preparations you will need to make, through to the surgical procedure and aftercare.
