Full, shapely breasts can make any woman feel more feminine, beautiful, and confident. Aesthetic breast enhancement improves the size, shape, and contour of your breasts. Women commonly choose breast implant surgery at Dr. Michael Horn’s Chicago practice for personal reasons, including increasing breast size, returning to pre-pregnancy shape, or achieving the size and shape that the breasts had during breast-feeding. Each woman has her own vision of the look she desires. Whether you would like a subtle enhancement or an attention-getting look, Dr. Horn will help you chose the best type of breast implants to create the look you desire. And, at Dr. Horn’s practice in Downtown Chicago, breast augmentation recovery is made easier with personal attention and exceptional medical care from his dedicated staff.
Breast augmentation is a safe and proven cosmetic surgery. During this outpatient procedure, an artful incision is carefully placed beneath the breast, around the areola or under the arm and an implant is inserted beneath the pectoral muscles. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and generally takes about one to two hours to complete.
Breast enhancement can provide a more rounded, attractive bust line and a nicely balanced figure. An overwhelming majority of patients who decide to have breast augmentation are delighted with the results. If you are considering breast implants, please contact the practice of Dr. Michael Horn in Chicago, Illinois, for more information on breast augmentation surgery and recovery.
There are a number of things to consider for your breast enlargement surgery. At his practice in Chicago, Dr. Michael Horn takes time to discuss the following options with his patients:
Breast implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Size is measured in cubic centimeters (cc) and determines the volume of the implant. The shape, or profile, is the appearance of the implant from the side. High profile breast implants produce a rounder appearance and more outward projection. Moderate profile breast implants create a more natural shape and appearance. Dr. Horn will recommend which implant and size will work best for your body type and the goals you have for your breast enlargement surgery. At his Chicago practice, Dr. Horn has extensive experience working with both high and moderate profile implants to create a proportionate, feminine look.
The position of breast implants, either above or beneath the pectoral muscles, can affect the overall look of your breast enlargement surgery. Dr. Horn prefers to place the implant under the chest muscle for exceptional results. He finds that the look is much more natural and that the risk of capsular contracture is nearly eliminated when the implant is placed under the muscle rather than above the muscle. During your breast enlargement surgery consultation at his Chicago practice, Dr. Horn will discuss with you all of the benefits of placing the implant below the muscle.
Scarring is a concern for many who are considering breast implant surgery. The location of the incision through which the implant is placed can make a difference in the size and type of scars that will form. The incision may be made in the armpit (transaxillary), around the nipple (periareolar), in the breast fold (inframammary), or through the navel (TUBA). Dr. Horn will determine which of these incision locations is most appropriate for your body type, goals, and personal preference.
During breast augmentation recovery, patients commonly experience temporary swelling, bruising, numbness, and discomfort. Most patients can return to work and normal activities in one to two weeks.
At the Chicago, Illinois practice of Dr. Michael Horn, patients are given exceptional medical care and individual attention during breast augmentation recovery to ensure optimal results after the procedure.
