The Shape, Feel and Size of Your New Fabulous Breasts
Silicone and saline implants are most commonly used to enlarge the breasts while maintaining a natural feel and shape. This procedure generally has no effect on the breast tissue and should not interfere with breast feeding or lump detection. After having children many women notice a reduction in breast tissue, Breast Augmentation can enhance and “perk up” breasts to look and feel great again. Many women are just born with less breast tissue and feel “out of proportion”. Breast Augmentation can make your clothes fit better; it can allow you to fill out a bathing suit and can boost your self-confidence!
Choosing the implant size is an important part of your surgery. Deciding on a conservative or generous implant is a very personal decision and should be made jointly by the patient and her physician. Dr Reichner likes to spend time with each patient to really gage what they are looking for. His goal is to make each woman feel more feminine and achieve a more balanced figure.

You will meet with Dr Reichner to review your medical history, discuss your goals, and evaluate your current breast size and shape. Dr Reichner encourages your input and wants to make sure you are confident and excited about your decision!
Information about the Surgery
The breast augmentation procedure usually takes 90 minutes under general anesthesia. There is a small incision, usually about an inch long, that can either be made under your nipple or under your breast. The implant is usually inserted behind the muscle.
It is normal to experience a little swelling and tightness of the chest. This is temporary and will get better each day. Most women can return to work approximately four days after their surgery. We advise our patients to wear a surgical compression garment for approximately six weeks after surgery. This will help you heal properly and provide support for your new breasts.
Breast Augmentation is a wonderful procedure that should be carefully considered. Because a lot depends on your individual circumstances, we invite you to come in for a consultation.
