Many women who have small or asymmetrical breasts wish to improve their breast contour. Full, shapely breasts are commonly considered the epitome of femininity. Cosmetic plastic surgery may be an ideal choice for these individuals. Breast implant surgery is performed by Kelly E. Tjelmeland, M.D., F.A.C.S. at Meridian Plastic Surgery Centerin Austin.
Medically termed “augmentation mammaplasty,” this procedure is designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Incisions can be made in the breast crease, around the areola, or in the armpit; saline breast implants or silicone breast implants are then placed above or below the chest muscle. Patients may choose from a variety of implant profiles in order to complement their body shape.
Dr. Tjelmeland is a meticulous plastic surgeon who ensures that his patients are provided with natural-looking results. In addition, he takes into account each patient’s anatomy in order to customize the procedure to meet her needs, which may entail combining a breast lift with augmentation.
Some Austin breast implant patients have combined other body contouring procedures, such as liposuction and tummy tuck surgery, in what is termed a “Mommy Makeover” surgery. This entails a combination of procedures that can help patients regain their pre-pregnancy body shape.
