Who Needs It
Women choose breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons. After years of aging and gravity, women in their 40s and 50s are prime candidates for the surgery, as breast enlargement (often in conjunction with a short scar breast lift procedure) can restore a more youthful form. Others are simply women of all ages who have always felt their breasts were too small. They want to feel more feminine, have clothes fit better, and feel the procedure will enhance their appearance.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.
Preparing for Your Breast Enlargement
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you what you would like to achieve through surgery. You will decide the cup size and shape you will be most happy with, where the incision will be made and whether or not to insert the implant over or underneath the muscle wall. You'll also have the opportunity to preview your possible results using our VECTRA® 3-D imaging system. Using a sophisticated camera, a member of our staff takes photos of you and uploads them to our computer. VECTRA software creates a 3-D rendering of your own body, allowing you to virtually "try on" different implant options. VECTRA allows you and your surgeon to work together to achieve the same goal.
Today, women have the choice between saline and a new generation of cohesive gel breast implants, which will stick together if punctured, torn, or cut. Studies have revealed a strong safety profile and this safety track record is what led the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to approve this implant type for widespread use in November 2006. Most women believe that cohesive gel implants look and feel more like natural breast tissue, but saline implants continue to be a popular option as well.
Fat Grafting — Natural fullness right where you want it
Using fat transferred from another part of your body, fat grafting can add lasting, natural-looking shape and volume.
Thanks to the innovative Keller Funnel™, women who choose silicone gel implants can benefit from shorter incisions and improved comfort and safety. Through the use of a lubricated funnel, the implant can be compressed through a smaller incision and inserted with great precision by your surgeon. Additionally, the Keller Funnel keeps the implant sterile with a "no touch technique" that reduces the risk of infection and shortens surgical time. The surgeons at The Wall Center have been certified to use the Keller Funnel for silicone breast augmentation.
In addition to the material used to fill the implants, there are many other breast implant options. For instance, both textured and smooth implants are available. The textured implant tends to stay in place by attaching itself to the surrounding tissues, while a smooth implant tends to move around more. However, textured implants can reveal rippling on the sides of the breast and have been shown to have a slightly higher deflation rate in some studies.
One of the country's most popular implants now features an exciting new option. Natrelle INSPIRA®, from Allergan, is available in a cohesive silicone gel that holds up better than any other available in the U.S. Form-stable yet still incredibly soft, these innovative implants keep their shape at all angles, in all positions — even if they're damaged. Learn more.
Besides the implant itself, you will also need to consider placement (above or below the pectoral muscle) and incision location (for instance, underneath the breast, on the edge of the areola, or in the armpit). Again, these issues will be discussed fully during your consultation.
It is also important to note that after 10 or 15 years, most implants need to be replaced. Common side effects from breast implants can include hardening of the breast tissue around the implant, a condition known as "capsular contracture." Your doctor may want to remove this surgically by removing the excess tissue or replacing the breast implant.
Most of our breast augmentation patients will have their surgery under general anesthesia so they can sleep comfortably through the procedure. Our surgeons take care to make incisions in such a way that scarring can be inconspicuous. The implant will be inserted and centered around the nipple. The incisions will then be sutured together and bandaged. After a few days the bandages will be replaced by a surgical bra, offering ample support to protect your breast shape.
The Wall Center is one of the only practices in Louisiana to offer breast augmentation patients the opportunity to plan and preview their results with the VECTRA® 3-D imaging system. VECTRA's lifelike renderings allow us to select the implants and surgical options that will produce your ideal breasts.
Swelling and bruising should steadily diminish over the weeks following surgery. After about 6 weeks, swelling and scarring should improve to the point that you have a good idea of the final look. Most women are very happy with their new look and feel more confident after surgery. Some even choose to complement their new look with an additional body contouring surgery, such as a tummy tuck.
