Breast Enlargement at Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery
Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that can enhance your feminine curves with fuller, shapelier breasts. More than a quarter of a million women each year choose breast implants, making breast augmentation the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure for women.
During breast enlargement surgery, breast implants are placed in position behind the breasts to expand the contours of the chest. Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure, allowing patients to return to the comfort of their home or nearby lodging shortly after the procedure. After a few days of rest at home and abstaining from vigorous workouts for a few weeks, most patients can resume all of their normal activities.
The plastic surgeons of Hedden & Gunn Plastic Surgery have special expertise in the latest breast augmentation techniques that minimize scarring and tissue disruption. Many breast enhancement patients today are choosing transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA), an advanced endoscopic technique that leaves only a tiny scar at the belly button and no scars at all on the breasts.
Breast implants are filled with saline or silicone gel, both of which have a very natural look and feel. Both types of implants are available in different sizes, shapes and textures. During your consultation for breast augmentation at our Birmingham, Alabama plastic surgery center, the physicians and staff of Heddden Plastic Surgery will help you decide upon the type of breast implants that will meet your expectations for breast enhancement.
