While some women are lucky enough to be born with perfectly-sized breasts, it doesn’t happen for everyone. Many women are very unhappy with their breast size and feel that the lack of sufficient breast tissue makes them appear less feminine and attractive. That’s when a breast augmentation in Bakersfield can greatly increase your quality of life, both personally and professionally.
Modern breast implants in Bakersfield are available in much wider range of shapes and sizes than was available in the past, including teardrop-shaped implants (gummy bear), created to more perfectly mimic natural breast tissue. Choosing your implants is a critical decision; you want the end result to be a look you will be pleased with for many, many years. Dr. Hu will work closely with you in selecting the implant size, shape, and projection that will look most natural on your body and frame. The two main categories are silicone and saline – but which type is right for you?
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthetic in most cases, so you will not feel or remember the experience. While you are under anesthesia, the incisions are placed in a surgically-created pocket, either behind your existing glandular breast tissue, or beneath the chest muscle. Your body condition and shape will determine which placement will produce the most natural-looking result. Once the implants are in place in the surgical pocket, the incisions are meticulously closed with tiny sutures (stitches). Your new breasts are held securely in place with a surgical bra, and your procedure is complete.
Our breast augmentation surgeries are performed at our private clinic, where we focus on patient health and safety in every procedure. You will awaken from your surgery with your new breasts in place, and can return home, driven by a trusted friend or family member.
We urge you to ensure you have an adult staying with you the first night, as you will need help in the earliest stages of recovery – although our patients tell us the recovery was far easier than they expected! It is normal to have some swelling and bruising, which fades as the days pass. Your new, plump, attractive breasts will now be revealed – ready to be shown off in tops with plunging necklines, bras, or a bikini top – no scars are visible.
When you are recovering from your boob job in Bakersfield, you will be restricted in the physical motions you can make. You cannot lift or stretch, as no pressure should be put on your incisions. You will need to take walks for exercise in the early stages and can only return to your regular exercise program (or a job that is physically taxing) after being give the go-ahead by Dr. Hu. You will be given directions on gentle massage to perform every day to help your new breasts settle into place correctly.
