Breast Augmentation in Schaumburg, IL

With roughly 200,000 breast augmentation procedures done yearly, it’s one of the top 5 cosmetic procedures performed. While there are several breast augmentation and reconstruction surgery options, the most commonly requested are breast implant and breast lift procedures.

Breast augmentation is a safe and effective way to alter the size, shape, or positioning of your breasts. Depending on your specific goals and health, one or more procedures may be recommended for you. Patients often seek breast enhancement for one or more of the following reasons:

  • To increase the size of naturally smaller breasts
  • To improve breast shape for a more voluminous appearance
  • To improve body proportion
  • To correct breast asymmetry
  • To improve the appearance of breasts that have begun to sag over time

To determine which breast augmentation procedure or combination of procedures are recommended to best help you achieve your goals, schedule a consultation with Dr. Bradley Ashpole today.

Breast Implants in Schaumburg, IL

Individuals who would like to increase their breast size typically opt for a breast implant procedure. This involves making an incision and inserting saline implants under the breast tissue or pectoral muscles. This procedure allows you to choose the exact size and shape you prefer, and all options will be reviewed in depth during your consultation.

Breast Lift in Schaumburg

Unlike breast implant surgery, a breast lift does not include implants of any kind. This procedure is primarily used for patients who have large breasts or have birthed children in the past, and are experiencing sagging or droopy breasts. Breast lift surgery involves the reshaping of the tissue inside the breast, removing excess skin, and adjusting nipple placement. The result is a more youthful appearance with more voluminous breasts.

Candidates for Breast Augmentation

The best candidates for breast augmentation procedures of any kind are healthy individuals who have realistic expectations. Deciding to have breast enhancement done is a highly personal decision, so it’s key to be transparent during your consultation with Dr. Ashpole.

Our breast augmentation surgeries are performed under general anesthesia as outpatient procedures. They typically take 1-2 hours, depending on what exactly is being done. Immediately after surgery, it’s normal to experience some discomfort, bruising, and inflammation, but can be controlled with medication. Patients can generally return to work in about one week but need to refrain from exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks.
