Defining and Understanding Breast Augmentation

The surgical procedure of breast augmentation or a breast lift in Cleveland is a technique applied to alter the cup size and shape of breasts. These procedures are also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty. These procedures enhance busts by increasing their size and firmness, create symmetry between both breasts, lift sagging breasts, plump up breast volume following pregnancy, and we carefully reconstruct breasts after injuries or mastectomy.

The Cleveland Plastic will discuss the options available to you when it comes to enlarging, reducing, or repairing busts. We only use the highest quality of silicone implants. These silicone implants contain a saline-water mix to complement your breasts and will help keep them perky and attractive. Dr. Leedy will help you decide which implants are best for your body type and the aesthetic you prefer to have on your body.

Dr. Leedy and her exceptional staff perform any surgery the follow a gold-standard of care. The breast incision is carefully chosen. Typically, these incisions will be underneath the curve of the breast or at the edge of the nipple. Both incision points are hardly noticeable leaving your breasts beautifully scar-free.

The surgery occurs under general anesthesia. The implants are inserted behind the chest muscle or underneath the breast tissue. The entire surgery lasts approximately an hour. Recovery can take anywhere from a couple of days to two weeks.
