Breast Augmentation in Charleston County, SC
Hormones, genetic and weight all contribute to a woman’s breast size. Because of this, many women are left feeling dissatisfied by the size of their natural breasts but feel there is little they can do to change it. Breast augmentation *allows women to safely enlarge their breasts to their desired size. Led by plastic surgeon Dennis K. Schimpf, MD, MBA, FACS, Sweetgrass Plastic Surgery has offices in Charleston, Summerville, and Kiawah Island, South Carolina. We offer breast augmentation for women who live in Charleston County and the surrounding South Carolina communities.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation, or boob job, refers to surgically *enlarging the breasts to be slightly or significantly larger than the natural breast. This augmentation is most commonly achieved through the use of implants. We offer implants in different shapes and substances, along with many sizes, to achieve the exact breasts our patients desire.
How is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Breast augmentation can vary from procedure to procedure, depending on your natural breasts and desired outcome. In order to change the shape, size, and position of the breast most effectively for you, Dr. Schimpf will recommend an individualized treatment plan based on your needs. In all cases, the breast augmentation procedure involves placing implants safely and effectively to obtain larger and more beautiful breasts.
What Kind of Breast Implants are Offered?
We offer breast implants with both saline and silicone solution. There are benefits to each implant, so it is up to you and the doctor to decide which is best in your case. Some women prefer saline implants because the incision can be smaller, as the implant is filled after being inserted. Many women, however, choose silicone implants because they feel more like natural breast tissue.
We also offer a few more customizable options, including shape and placement. The shape of the implant is important for those patients who are concerned about how their breasts look. For example, some women prefer more volume at the top of the chest. We also offer submuscular (behind the pectoral muscle) and subglandular (on top of the pectoral muscle) implants to further improve the outcome of your implants.
*Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is ideal for women who are unhappy with the current size, shape, or position of the breasts. No longer must women worry that breast augmentation is only for women who want a large, obvious “boob job.” The new shapes and methods for breast implants allow Dr. Schimpf to achieve truly natural-looking results. Many women are surprised just how much a “boob job” can help them to feel more confident, feminine, and happy in an out of their clothing.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Breast Augmentation?
We recommend coming in for a consultation if you’re interested in a breast augmentation, as that is the only way Dr. Schimpf can truly determine your eligibility for a breast implant procedure. Many women schedule a consultation after becoming unhappy with their breasts due to one or more of the following reasons:
- Weight change
- Sagging or loss of volume
- Asymmetry or nipple position
- Breasts which simply feel or look too small
