Breast Augmentation Considerations

The women who visit Dr. Jejurikar for breast augmentation from Oakbrook, IL and other suburban Chicago communities have several important decisions to make. During the consultation, he helps them understand their options for breast implants and surgical technique, which include:

  • Type of implant. Patients may choose either silicone gel or saline implants. Silicone implants are made of gel that looks and feels a lot like natural breast tissue. Saline implants are filled with a sterile salt water solution which, should the implant leak or rupture, will be harmlessly absorbed by your body. Women considering breast implants should know that Dr. Jejurikar will take the time to review all options in detail during the consultation.
  • Size of the implant. Even though this procedure is intended to make breasts larger, they should still look natural and be balanced with the rest of a woman's figure.
  • Placement of the implant. Depending on the desired look, the type of implant, and personal anatomy, implants can be placed either above or underneath the pectoral muscle.
  • Incision location. Incisions can be made underneath the breast, in the armpit, or around the nipple. Dr. Jejurikar will plan surgery to minimize the appearance of scarring.

Many women choose breast augmentation as part of their Mommy Makeover. This personalized combination of procedures often includes liposuction, as well.

Crisalix 3-D Imaging: See the Possibilities

You can preview the potential results of your breast augmentation — with different implant sizes and placement options — using Crisalix 3‐D imaging. Dr. Jejurikar offers his patients this opportunity to help them visualize what their breasts may look like. Seeing a 3‐D image can often help women make decisions about their breast augmentation procedure and give them peace of mind about the choices they make. You can also get input from friends or family by sharing the 3‐D images online with them.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

Dr. Jejurikar develops direct relationships with his patients so, as they prepare for surgery, patients will be meeting one-on-one with him, not just with a nurse or practice manager. He takes the time to ensure that all patient questions are answered well before the day of surgery.

Breast enlargement is most frequently performed under general anesthesia, although IV sedation is also an option. The surgical plan that has been discussed and established with Dr. Jejurikar will determine how he performs the procedure – from the type of implant to the location of the incisions and placement of the implant. Some women choose to combine their breast augmentation with a breast lift to improve both the overall size as well as position and shape of their breasts. Dr. Jejurikar may also perform fat grafting, also called fat transfer, to enhance the breast augmentation results for his suburban Chicago patients.

Recovery & Results

After incisions have been closed, patients will be sent home with instructions for a 24 to 48 hour recovery period. It is important to limit activity, especially lifting or upper body exercises, for several days after the initial recovery period as well. After a few weeks, swelling and soreness should fade away and normal activities may be resumed. In addition to increasing breast volume, breast enlargement also can improve the shape and contour of the breasts.
