Breast Augmentation / Breast Enlargement)
Breast Augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is performed to enlarge small breasts, undeveloped breasts, or breasts that have decreased in size after pregnancy. It is accomplished by surgically inserting an implant either beneath the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle to create a fuller appearance. Several different surgical incisions exist for implant placement, and a variety of implant materials and styles are available. The procedure may be combined with others such as breast lift for more satisfying results. Dr. Pensler offers computerized imaging prior to surgery so the patient can visualize potential results in 3 d with and without clothes. In addition patients are able to utilize a sizing a system to have sizers placed in their bras to understand the effect of augmentation with respect to the look in clothing. Dr. Pensler is actively involved in the development of these technologies .There are also a number of different shapes of implants all of which can be visualized using the latest 3 dimensional technology in our office.

Top Rated Procedure Breast Augmentation in Chicago Illinois - Saline Breast Implants and Silicone Breast Implants

If you’re looking for a breast augmentation surgery center in Chicago, Illinois there are a number of different factors to consider.  It is important to find a cosmetic plastic surgeon who has extensive knowledge about each procedure.  Every patient will have different requirements so it is important to find a surgeon who will be able to choose from a wide selection of possible techniques. 

Most people focus on implant types—especially after the bad press that arose about silicone implants.  At a clinic providing breast augmentation surgery in Chicago, Illinois, you can be 100 percent certain that the procedures are 100 percent safe.  In addition to implant types, there are four major incision areas to choose from.  The incision type you choose will be based in part on the type of implant, cost, and risk. 

The three major incision types for breast augmentation surgery in Chicago, Illinois are pariareloar, inframammary, and axillary.  Let’s take those one at a time.  A pariareolar incision is around the nipple.  It is a very well concealed incision—one of the top considerations—but it does pose a risk for later breast feeding.  Alternatively, the inframammary incision is also well concealed with less of a risk for breast feeding than the pariareolar.  The incision is made at the base of the breast. 

Finally, the axillary incision is made in the underarm.  It is also well concealed.  When getting breast augmentation surgery in Chicago, Illinois there are a number of factors to take into consideration.  For example, if future breast feeding is not an issue, this will factor into which incision type you choose.  The initial consultation about breast augmentation surgery in Chicago, Illinois will help sort out what to expect from each surgery—including cost, rehabilitation, comfort level, and visibility of the incision. 

Breast augmentation Chicago, Illinois isn’t just about cost and incision types: it’s about changing your life.  A quality cosmetic surgeon will address any concerns you might have about the procedure—as well as what you hope to achieve from breast augmentation or a breast lift surgery. 

Whether it is one cup size, two or three, women interested in breast augmentation may not be certain about the size of the change that they wish to create through breast augmentation. Also, breast size appears differently in different types of clothes. In fact, bra manufacturers develop many types of bras, all of which provide varying levels of comfort and fit. Then, there came adjustable breast implants.

Adjustable Breast Implants

Years ago, adjustable breast implants were not available. Since then, breast implant manufacturers have created breast implants that may be deflated or inflated, as needed. Once swelling subsides and breasts drop into position following augmentation, the true features of enhanced breasts become evident. Within six months following breast augmentation, the final result is apparent. This is a time when a woman may decide that the size is not quite right. Too, women may gain glandular fat in the breasts through weight gain. Breast size may increase with age. All of these reasons may signify the need to change breast implant size.

Adjustable saline breast implants allow plastic surgeons to make changes in breast size. Adjustable breast implants are offered in both saline and silicone shell. The procedure to adjust breast implant size is fairly simple. Plastic surgeons may insert a syringe into the location of the initial surgical incision to remove or fill the breast implant with saline. In essence, the breast augmentation procedure does not have to be repeated for an adjustment. There is no need to dissect the breast pocket and no trauma to underlying breast tissue. The change may be up to 20% or more.

Clearly, the advantages in adjustable breast implants are related to the simplicity in the procedure and ease in recovery. Women interested in breast augmentation may not ever think that they will desire a breast size change, but a time may come that a size change is appropriate. Adjustable breast implants provide a simple solution for such times.
