One of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Highland Park and Schaumburg, breast augmentation offers a very high rate of patient satisfaction. To ensure satisfaction, however, it is important to choose a skilled plastic surgeon who will tailor the procedure to fit your aesthetic goals as well as your unique anatomy. Through careful consultation, Dr. Ashpole will discuss with you such issues as breast implant type (saline or silicone), implant size, implant shape, and incision and placement options to create the look you desire. He will also discuss with you any risks, concerns, and recovery time with you before undergoing the procedure.
For Dr. Ashpole’s patients in Highland Park and Schaumburg, breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. On average, the procedure takes about an hour to an hour and a half. Typically, a woman will experience some discomfort, bruising, and mild swelling immediately following surgery. The pain is generally well controlled with medication. While exercise and lifting heavy objects should be avoided for several weeks, a woman is generally able to return to work/normal activities within 5-7 days.
Breast augmentation can be performed alone or combined with other procedures, such as a breast lift, Liposuction or a tummy tuck for a more complete rejuvenation.
