Breast Augmentation Frequently Asked Questions

Questions

Answers

What is breast augmentation surgery in Oklahoma City ?

Breast Augmentation surgery in Oklahoma City is an operation to enlarge or change the shape of a woman’s breasts. This is done by putting silicone or saline implants under the breast tissue or under one of the chest wall muscles. Some women simply want breast enlargement, and others want to improve the appearance of their breasts after pregnancy or weight loss. Many women also desire a breast augmentation in order to look and feel more curvaceous and/or feminine.

Breast augmentation surgeries in Oklahoma City are some of the most common procedures done in the United States each year, and a majority of patients are very satisfied with their results. A majority of patients also state that they recommend this procedure to others and report a positive benefit in how they view their bodies.

Who is a candidate?
  • Women who wish to make their breasts larger for personal or psychological emotional reasons.
  • Women who want to correct size differences (asymmetry) between the breasts or atypical breast shape.
  • Women who want to return to a breast size they were before breastfeeding or pregnancy.
Am I too old for the surgery?

Women in their 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and even 70’s have undergone breast augmentation surgery in Oklahoma City with Dr. Cohn with excellent patient satisfaction. The most common patient for this surgery is a woman in her 30′s with two children who has been considering this operation for many years.

Should I wait until I am finished having children before having breast augmentation in Oklahoma City?

Pregnancy will change the size and shape of a woman’s breasts whether she has implants or not. These changes may adversely affect the cosmetic appearance of any breast, however, waiting until after pregnancy isn’t necessary.  It is usually recommended that pregnancy be postponed until 6 months after the surgery. Breast-feeding with implants is still possible and has been shown to be safe for the baby and the mother.

Will breast augmentation also work in people with droopy or sagging breasts?

Women with sagging breasts, which is called “ptosis”, can also receive breast implants. Depending on how much the breast sags, an additional surgery may also be necessary. For breasts with nipples that droop below the lower crease of the breast, a breast lift surgery, or mastoplexy, is often required as well. This surgery will also add scars around the nipple unlike most breast augmentation surgeries in Oklahoma City. Without this additional surgery to remove excess skin, placement of the implant can cause the breast to have a “double bubble” or “snoopy breast” look. Commonly, women with sagging breasts often have the implants placed under the breast tissue, or “sub-glandular” to avoid these problems.

What implant options are available for breast augmentation?

The FDA has approved the use of both silicone and aline (sterile salt water) as available implant filler options for women considering breast augmentation in Oklahoma City. We use implants made by in the USA by Mentor Worldwide, LLC. Both options are made of bio-compatible material and have a smooth or textured silicone shell. Implants come in varying sizes and shapes to accommodate different body types and volumetric increases. Your body type, chest size, and density of breast tissue will help determine the implant size and shape. Implants can be placed either above the muscle or below the muscle. The incision for placement can be made around the nipple, in the armpit, or in the crease of the breast. There are pros and cons to each location. Prior to breast augmentation surgery in Oklahoma City, you will consult with Dr. Cohn at our convenient location in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to discuss your options and concerns regarding the procedure.

What should I expect at my first consultation?

Dr. Cohn will ask why you want to have this surgery. Topics such as expectations on final size, and emotional reasons will be discussed. It is often easier for a patient who has been pregnant prior to surgery to know how she will feel and look after the procedure. If the natural increase in breast size during pregnancy was welcomed, this may predict how satisfied the patient will be with breast implants. Second, she will discuss the different types of breast augmentation  surgeries in Oklahoma City, where the scars will be, and what the associated risks are.

How do I choose the size of my new breasts?

This is often one of the most difficult decisions, and for many reasons, has the most potential for disappointment. For instance, women often come to Dr. Cohn with a new bra size in mind. Since bra size depends on many factors, a better choice is to look at our before and after pictures gallery on the website and a more extensive collection of photos at our office. By finding a women with a similar body shape in the “before” picture, and then with the results you want in the “after” picture, misconceptions on the final breast size can be avoided. Generally, each 125-150cc of saline that is added to the implant will result in an increase in a single cup size. In addition, Dr. Cohn will have you try on implants sizers to help select a suitable implant size, as well as take measurements that will further aid in the implant size selection.

How much will the breast augmentation surgery in Oklahoma City cost?

The average for breast implantation is between $3,500-4,800, but this is highly variable and you should contact us to get a complimentary consultation and quote from Dr. Cohn regarding your specific case.
