Breast Augmentation in Washington D.C.

Do your disproportionately small breasts prevent you from having the feminine, voluptuous curves you desire? Are you dissatisfied with the loss of volume and shape in your breasts after pregnancy?

Breast augmentation uses implants to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. This procedure can be an important tool to transform your life, breathing new confidence and happiness into a physique you love.

Enlarging and reshaping the bust can help many women feel more comfortable in their bodies. Some women want a sexier physique with large, round implants, while others find more satisfaction in smaller low-profile implants that restore youth and volume. No matter your needs, breast augmentation provides a long-term solution designed to add more beauty and confidence to your life.

What Can Breast Augmentation Address?

Naturally Small Breasts

Women with genetically small breasts fall into this category. They have not experienced any pregnancy-related changes to the breasts and are often younger than 30 years of age. Women in this category typically have firm, youthful breast tissue and seek to increase their breast size with a round, high-profile device. However, your breast enhancement is customized to you and can include options to achieve natural-looking breasts.

Post-pregnancy Breast Deflation

Many women lose volume and firmness in the breasts after pregnancy and nursing. These women are usually between 25 and 40 years of age. The daily stresses of life mixed with the changes that occur in the body during pregnancy leave women wishing for their old body back. Luckily, breast augmentation can restore lost volume and firmness, leaving you with breasts that look as great as they did before the kids (and maybe even a little better).

Mothers with breast sagging often undergo breast augmentation and breast lift surgery together to enhance their breast size, shape, and projection.

Breast Asymmetry

Our bodies are naturally asymmetrical, meaning that one side is not completely identical to the opposite side. Women may not be bothered by slight asymmetries between the size and shape of their right and left breast, but dramatic differences between the breasts can make women feel insecure about their appearance. One of the many benefits of breast implants is that you can choose the size of each implant, which allows your surgeon to tailor your procedure to correct breasts that may be different sizes. Implants can create more balanced, symmetrical breasts to help women feel more attractive, feminine, and confident.

Where Are the Incisions Made for Breast Augmentation?

Incisions Model

Inframammary Incision

  • Made along the natural crease below the breast between the tissue and chest wall
  • Allows for precise implant placement above and below the muscle
  • Easily hidden by bras and bathing suits
  • Commonly used again if a subsequent breast surgery is needed

Transaxillary Incision

  • Made within the armpit
  • Uses an endoscope to insert the implants into the breasts
  • No scarring on the breast
  • No irritation or disruption of the mammary glands

Periareolar Incision

  • Made along the edge of the areola
  • Uses the darkened skin surrounding the nipple to conceal its placement
  • Great control for the surgeon during the procedure
  • Can be reopened for subsequent breast augmentation adjustments or revisions

Umbilical Incision

  • Made within the belly button
  • Uses an endoscope to insert the implants into the breasts
  • No scarring on the breast
  • No irritation or disruption of the mammary glands

Where Are the Breast Implants Placed?

Choosing the appropriate placement for your breast implants is one of the most important factors to get the desired results from your breast augmentation surgery. Breast implant placement is often chosen based on the type of breast implants you wish to have and your lifestyle.

What Should I Expect From Breast Augmentation?

What Is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?

It takes between four and six weeks to fully recover from breast augmentation surgery. In the initial week, you will be required to wear a support bra and avoid strenuous physical activities. After two weeks, you will slowly begin to resume your normal activities, but excess physical exertion, such as exercise, should only be done with your surgeon’s permission. It is important to follow up with your surgeon to professionally track the progress of your recovery and maximize your results.

Will I Have Scars After Breast Augmentation?

It is possible for breast augmentation to result in some slight scarring that will likely fade over time. It is important to discuss your incision placement and any concerns with Dr. Davison to determine the best incision option for your lifestyle. To minimize the appearance of scarring, be sure to keep your incisions out of the sun and ask your surgeon about scar treatments.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?

The cost of breast augmentation is affected by many factors. Geographical location, breast implant cost, facility fees, anesthesia fees, and surgeon fees all alter the total cost of your procedure. However, price should only be one factor in choosing a surgeon. You should never sacrifice quality work by a board-certified plastic surgeon just to save some money. Proven results matter. Plastic surgery financing is available if needed.

Is Breast Augmentation Painful?

There is some slight pain associated with breast augmentation surgery. Immediately following your surgery, it is normal to experience redness, bruising, swelling, and soreness. Your chest may feel tight and uncomfortable. To control the pain, you will be prescribed an oral pain medication and should schedule downtime for at least a few days following your surgery.
