Breast Augmentation

Hattiesburg Clinic Plastic Surgery specializes in breast augmentation procedures to enhance the shape and size of your breasts.

Breast Augmentation Overview

At Hattiesburg Clinic Plastic Surgery, our board-certified physicians have nearly 50 years of combined experience performing breast enhancements and breast augmentations. Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, uses breast implants or a transfer of fat to increase breast size.

Serving South Mississippi, our team can help you achieve the shape and contour you desire in your breasts. From improvements in breast fullness and shape, to the overall enhancing of self-image and self-confidence, our expertly performed procedures can help you reach your goals.

Our team is committed to helping you achieve your ideal look. A consultation with our experts is a great way to begin the process. We will use that time to help answer questions, discuss your options, and talk through the post-op process.

Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?

A typical breast augmentation patient comes to us because of the following reasons:

  • Small or asymmetrical breasts
  • Reduced firmness from aging
  • Drooping or sagging breasts after childbirth and/or breastfeeding

If you are interested in breast enlargement, it’s important to make sure you are in good health, have a history of physical activity, and are emotionally stable. It is important for patients to note that while breast augmentation can enhance your overall breast size and improve firmness, it will not alter your body. The best candidates for mammoplasty understand the procedure and realistic expectations for the results.

How is breast augmentation performed?

Today, women can choose from a variety of breast implants. Our surgeons prefer smooth-walled implants since they tend to give a more natural result than texture implants. Of smooth-walled implants, there are two types of breast implants available: saline (salt-water-filled) or silicone (gel-filled). Both are excellent and safe choices.

A mammoplasty procedure is performed under general anesthesia in a fully accredited outpatient and surgical facility. Our board-certified plastic surgeons believe this is the safest approach, and patients tolerate this much better than local anesthesia with sedation.

What can I expect after breast augmentation?

After your breast augmentation surgery, you can expect soreness, bruising and swelling. While there is some moderate discomfort, our board-certified plastic surgeons can prescribe medication to control it. You will be directed to wear a surgical bra for a few days and to avoid any heavy lifting.

Some of our patients experience reduced sensation in their nipples after breast augmentation, but this is only temporary. The feeling should return to normal once healing is complete. Most patients return to work within a week and return to normal daily activities within a few weeks. Following surgery, patients should see an increase in fullness and projection of the breasts. They also see an improved balance and/or contour of the body, enhancing self-image and self-confidence.
