Transumbilical Breast Augmentation Planning
Many women each year choose breast augmentation to create a fuller bustline and more shapely breasts. Some feel that their breasts are too small and that a larger breast size would enhance the overall balance, proportions and contour of their body. Others consider breast augmentation because of a loss of breast volume caused by pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
Board-certified plastic surgeon William J. Hedden, M.D. at the Birmingham, Alabama offices and outpatient surgery center of Hedden Plastic Surgery has years of experience in performing breast augmentation procedures using both saline and silicone gel breast implants. If you decide that you would benefit from breast enlargement, please schedule your free consultation with Dr. Hedden.
Alabama Breast Augmentation Consultation & Evaluation
At your breast augmentation consultation, your surgeon will perform an examination to assess the characteristics of the breasts, skin and any other factors that could affect the surgery. Dr. Hedden will carefully listen to your goals and expectations for your target breast size and fully explain the procedure, including the types of breasts implants, what happens during the surgery and what to expect after surgery.
You will be shown actual saline breast implants and given the opportunity to experiment with sizers placed into a sports bra. As you "try on" different sizes, photos may be taken that you can look at later. A pre-surgery appointment may be scheduled to review sizing and finalize your choice of breast implants.
Our Birmingham, Alabama office will provide you with complete instructions to help you prepare for Transumbilical Breast Augmentation surgery and the recovery period. These instructions include guidelines for medications and vitamins to take before and after surgery, eating and drinking, and returning to normal activities following your TUBA procedure.
