Dr. Gardner meets with his patients personally before every procedure to better understand their concerns and to create a personalized breast augmentation treatment plan that will assist them in achieving their aesthetic goals. He has experience in using both saline and silicone breast implants, and he assists patients in determining what kind of implant is right for their specific needs. In addition, he performs several advanced breast augmentation techniques such as the dual plane technique to meet patients' aesthetic goals.
Dr. Gardner performs two variations of breast augmentation according to where the implant is placed: under or over the muscle. Depending on the patient's request, Dr. Gardner creates incisions under the breast, around the nipple or under the arm.
After creating the incision, Dr. Gardner dissects a pocket in front of or behind the pectoral muscle, depending on the amount of existing breast tissue and where the nipple is. He then gently inserts the implant and artfully contours the breast to help patients achieve beautiful, natural-looking results.
In addition to breast augmentation, Dr. Gardner may suggest that patients combine their surgery with other breast enhancement procedures in order to yield ideal results. Many mothers and others who are unhappy with the changes in their breasts combine breast augmentation with a breast lift to obtain fuller, more youthful-looking breasts.
Recovering from Breast Augmentation Surgery
Dr. Paul M. Gardner performs all of his breast enhancement procedures at Gardner Plastic Surgery, a fully accredited outpatient surgical facility. Dr. Gardner and his surgical team work diligently to offer patients pleasant plastic surgery experiences that yield minimal complications and desirable results. Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, which gives patients the convenience of recovering within the comfort of their own homes. Patients typically need one to two weeks of rest following the procedure before they are able to return to their usual activities. In some instances, Dr. Gardner may suggest patients wear a supportive garment to assist the healing process.
