BREAST AUGMENTATION IN BIRMINGHAM, AL
What is breast augmentation or mammoplasty surgery and what results can you expect?
Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, the procedure involves using implants to increase the size of your breasts, restore breast volume, achieve a more rounded shape, or improve natural breast size asymmetry. Breast augmentation surgery cannot correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation.

Your consultation will provide more information.
What to Expect
While a breast augmentation yields larger breasts right away, the final results may take a few weeks as the swelling subsides and the skin stretches. Some patients may need to wear a bandeau to help shape their breasts, especially if they have underlying asymmetry or very small breasts to start with. Incision lines may take several months, even a couple of years, to fade.
As women come in all shapes and sizes so do their implant options. Depending on your body shape, size and desired outcome, Dr. Cotter will help you sort out what type, shape, profile, texture and implant placement is right for you. Most women (and their significant other) tend to prefer the more natural look and feel of silicone implants however, saline implants can also provide a great outcome.
