Breast Implant Procedures at Chevy Chase, MD and Washington, DC
Have you been thinking about enlarging the size of your breasts? If so, you aren’t alone – breast implant procedures have become more common in recent years and have helped women successfully complement their body shape with fuller breasts. If you’ve been considering breast implants, our Chevy Chase, MD cosmetic surgery practice offers breast augmentation treatment.
Breast Implant Options
At Kung Plastic Surgery, we perform breast augmentation or enlargement surgery in a number of different ways; both the site of incision and type of breast implant can vary based on your needs. Implants can be any of the following:
• Gel filled
• Saline filled
• Tear drop shaped
Dr. Kung meets with breast augmentation patients before their treatment plan is developed, to help them pick from all available options. We want you to get exactly what you need to meet your goals. Our patients can even choose the method in which their implants are placed: underneath the muscle or underneath the breast tissue, through incisions that can be made underneath the breasts, around the nipple, under the arm, or through the belly button.
Which Type of Implant or Surgery Method is Best?
Each type of implant, whether saline or silicone gel, and method of placement has unique advantages. During your consultation at our Chevy Chase cosmetic surgery practice, Dr. Kung will explain what occurs during breast enlargement, from start to finish. We’ll help you weigh all options, so you can gain a greater understanding of the procedure and make the choices that feel right for you. We hold our patients in the highest regard and feel that a personal approach is not a luxury, but a necessity for success.
Recovery from Breast Implant Surgery
Most of our breast implant patients feel sore for about five to seven days after surgery. Dr. Kung can prescribe oral pain medication to help manage any discomfort. Patients typically return to work after about a week and resume normal routines after a month. It is very important for our patients to attend scheduled follow up visits to ensure a smooth recovery and ideal results.
