Breast Augmentation Richmond

Do you have issues with your breasts due to aging, childbirth, or other reasons? Do you have issues with the size and shape of your breasts? Now, you can turn your breast dreams into a reality at Inspire Cosmetics.
Our world-class breast enhancement procedures will get you closer to the breasts you never thought you’d have. A quick one-on-one talk with our surgeons will give you a preview of what your breasts can become.

What happens during breast augmentation?

Each breast enhancement procedure begins by cleaning the surgery area and the incision area, followed by a few incisions around the areola. The incision will server as the passageway for the implant and will be placed either in the back or the front of the pectoral muscles.
The placement of the implants will depend on the amount of breast tissue available. If you have little breast tissue, the implants will be placed behind your pectoral muscles and in front if you have ample breast tissue. After inserting the implants, your surgeon will make absorbable sutures to make sure that the implants remain intact. On top of that, bandages and gauzes will be applied to prevent infection.
To prevent infection, our surgeons make sure to prepare the operative field meticulously by sterilizing the surgical area and preparing the materials. Also, they usually administer a dose of antibiotics prior to the procedure in order to avoid any infections. Anesthetics are usually not required as breast augmentation is not normally a painful procedure. Mild pain-relievers such as Paracetamol are usually sufficient in suppressing the pain. Although you will notice the results immediately, you will see your breasts’ final appearance after a day, once the swelling subsides.

How do I choose the appropriate breast size and shape for me?

To be able to get natural-looking breasts, you must always make sure that the shape and size of your implants match your physique. Our surgeons are highly trained and more than qualified to assist you in making your choice—whether it’s the aesthetic or the medical aspect.

Where are the implants placed?

The placement of your breast implants depends greatly on the amount of breast tissue you have. As said earlier, clients with a small amount of breast tissue will have their implants placed under the pectoral muscle while clients with an ample amount of breast tissue will have their implants placed in front of the pectoral muscle. If you’re not sure which option is best for you, our surgeons and staff will guide you through the decision-making process.

What are the different incisions?

To conceal scars, our surgeons choose from several incision techniques:

  • Periareolar – this incision is made around and near the edge of the areola. With this incision, the visibility of scarring tends to be low. However, you may experience changes in nipple sensitivity as it involves cutting through ducts and breast tissue.
  • Inframammary – this incision is made under the breast crease and is one of the most used methods because the scars are usually well-concealed.
  • Transumbilical (TUBA) – this incision is created in the navel whereby an endoscope is used for easy insertion of the implant into the breast pockets. Because this method needs only one incision, scarring is generally unnoticeable.

Whatever your desired surgical incision is, our surgeons will guide you through achieving one common goal – to lessen scarring or to conceal them so that the outcome is very natural.

Can your implant rupture?

Since the implant is a foreign object, your body may react against it at first (although different people tend to have different reactions). Breast implants also only last for 10-15 years; it’s best to replace them when your surgeon suggests. If you go beyond the prescribed period or fail to heed your surgeon’s advice, there is an increased risk of rupturing or tearing. This can cause a lot of problems such as breast deformation, swelling, and pain.
If rupturing does occur, we highly advise you to visit one of our surgeons as soon as possible, so they can assess the situation and take immediate steps to restore your breasts.
