Breast Augmentation: Enhancing Your Confidence Through a Personalized Approach

Considering breast augmentation surgery? You’re not alone. Many women desire a fuller, more balanced breast shape for a variety of reasons. Mr. Erdmann, a highly qualified and experienced plastic surgeon iat the Spire Washington Hospital understands this desire and is dedicated to helping women achieve their aesthetic goals through personalised breast augmentation procedures.

This blog post will delve into the world of breast augmentation, exploring implant options, the consultation process, and what to expect after surgery.

Understanding Your Options: Saline vs. Silicone Implants

One of the most crucial decisions during your breast augmentation consultation is choosing the right implant type. Mr. Erdmann offers two primary implant options:

      • Saline Implants: Filled with sterile saltwater solution, saline implants feel more natural to the touch. They are typically less expensive than silicone implants, but if a leak occurs, the saline will be absorbed by the body, causing the implant to deflate.
      • Silicone Gel Implants: Mr Erdmann’s preferred implant, these are filled with semi-solid silicone gel, which closely resembles the texture of breast tissue, silicone implants offer a more natural look and feel. They come in various shapes and textures to achieve your desired outcome. While more expensive than saline implants, they are less likely to be noticeable if a leak occurs, as the silicone gel maintains its shape.

Mr. Erdmann will discuss your aesthetic goals, body type, lifestyle, and personal preferences in detail to help you choose the implant that best suits your needs




The Consultation Process: Setting Realistic Expectations

During your initial consultation with Mr. Erdmann, you can expect a comprehensive discussion about your desired outcome. He will meticulously assess your breast size, shape, skin elasticity, and overall health to determine if you’re a good candidate for breast augmentation.

Here’s what you can expect during the consultation:

  • A review of your medical history: Mr. Erdmann will discuss any past surgeries, medications you’re taking, and any health conditions you may have.
  • A physical examination: This includes measuring your breasts and discussing your desired implant size and placement.
  • Discussion of implant options: Mr. Erdmann will explain the pros and cons of each implant type and help you choose the one that best aligns with your goals.
  • Visualisation tools: He will utilise 3D imaging software to help you visualise your potential results after surgery.
  • Discussion of risks and complications: Mr. Erdmann will openly discuss the potential risks associated with breast augmentation surgery, such as infection, nipple symptoms, capsule contracture, and implant rupture.



The Road to Recovery: What to Expect After Surgery

Following your breast augmentation surgery, Mr. Erdmann will provide detailed instructions for post-operative care. This typically includes:

      • Wearing a surgical bra: This support garment helps to minimise swelling and promotes proper healing.
      • Pain management: Medication will be prescribed to manage any discomfort you may experience.
      • Limited activity: Strenuous exercise should be avoided for a specific period to allow for optimal healing.
      • Follow-up appointments: Regular check-ups with Mr. Erdmann are essential to monitor your progress and ensure proper healing.
