Breast Augmentation Columbia
Performed to increase breast size and create a more shapely, feminine figure, breast augmentation at our South Carolina plastic surgery center produces natural-looking and beautiful results. With an eye for symmetry and proportion, Dr. Wassermann can help patients make their dreams a reality.
Dr. Wassermann works with each woman to develop a personalized treatment plan based on her unique goals. Careful consideration is put into pre-operative choices such as implant type and size (shaped, silicone or saline), incision location, and implant placement (above or below muscle) to ensure maximum satisfaction with the breast augmentation procedure.
Moderate profile implants can be used to achieve the most natural shape and appearance with a broader base. High profile implants create forward projection for a given breast width producing more upper pole fullness and allowing for the correction of some ptosis and sagging.
Dr. Wassermann uses either saline or silicone gel-filled implants depending on the patient’s anatomy or preferences. The size of the implant, whether moderate or high profile, will also influence the final result.
Breast augmentation at our South Carolina center may be performed through periareolar (around the areola), inframammary fold (breast crease), or transaxillary (through the underarm) incisions. The incision placement will influence the size and type of scarring that develops.
Dr. Wassermann is the only plastic surgeon in Columbia who performs transaxillary endoscopic breast augmentation. This technique allows the entire procedure to be completed through a small incision hidden in the underarm.
Implants may be placed over or under the pectoralis muscle depending on personal preference and body type. There are specific benefits to both techniques, and Dr. Wassermann can help his patients determine which approach is appropriate for them.
Dr. Wassermann’s extensive experience and careful treatment plans allow most breast augmentation patients at our South Carolina center to enjoy a rapid recovery and to return to non-strenuous activities in one week.
