Let’s Have a Conversation

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses top-quality implants to increase the size and fullness of your breasts. This approach can also enhance the shape of your breasts.
There are numerous types of implants to choose from. Various materials offer a distinct set of pros and cons, and there are also different shapes available. During your consultation with David M. Godat, MD, he can help you select the implants that best suit your body type and augmentation goals.
You may want to consider adding the internal bra procedure to your augmentation. This technique helps you get the best value from your surgery by providing internal support for your implants, preventing sagging and stretched skin.

Why do women pursue breast augmentation?

Every woman has a unique set of reasons for choosing breast augmentation, and none of those reasons are any more or less valid than another. The most important aspect of considering breast augmentation is whether the results will improve your body confidence. Like all plastic surgery procedures, you should never consider breast augmentation to meet someone else’s aesthetic ideals.
Some women choose breast augmentation to replace the fullness they lose after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Losing a significant amount of weight can also change the shape and size of your breasts, and implants can help you achieve balance with the rest of your body.
For some, breast augmentation is a matter of achieving optimal proportions. If you have full and curvy hips, more voluminous breasts can create a classic hourglass figure. Some women are simply excited to feel great about their body in a swimsuit or in the shower.

What happens during breast augmentation surgery?

During breast augmentation surgery, you have general anesthesia, so you won’t be aware of any part of the surgical process. Dr. Godat begins by making the incisions needed to gain access to your breast tissue. He then positions the implants to achieve the best effect.
Your incision placement and the positioning of your implants depends on your anatomy, the type of implant you have chosen, and the amount of volume you’re adding. Dr. Godat discusses your surgical plan with you in detail prior to your surgery, so you know what to expect.
Once he’s happy with the placement, Dr. Godat closes your incisions using layered sutures inside your breasts and skin adhesives, sutures, or surgical tape on your external incisions. You are taken to a recovery area and monitored as the anesthesia wears off.
Breast augmentation recovery averages three weeks, and Dr. Godat provides you with a post-operative bra to wear during this time. Most patients return to work within a few days of surgery, but there are activity restrictions you need to adhere to. Dr. Godat explains the entire healing process with you to ensure a safe and swift recovery.
When you’re ready to explore the options for achieving the breast size and shape you desire, call the office to schedule a breast augmentation consultation with David M. Godat, MD.

I had a Duodenal Switch in October of 2017 and since that time had gone from 389# to 235# which left me with and abundance of hanging skin. The weight lost actually increased my back pain due from my herniated disks due to the lack of “padding” as well as the added stress from the hanging skin. Once I was finally approved for the skin removal and abdominoplasty last December, The process was very quick. I had my first appointment on Dec 3rd, preop on Dec 9th and surgery on Dec 12th. Everything went great. I had and issue with one area of abdomen not healing properly ending up in the need for wound care for it to totally heal. The results have been AWESOME. I am now having very little back pain have lost another 20# (down to 215#) and 6 more inches from my waistline (44 inch waist before skin removal and now 38). Dr. Godat and his staff have been truly amazing thru this whole process.
This is my second surgery with Dr. Godat. He and his staff go above and beyond in the care of their patients. His staff are kind, patient, and caring. I’m thrilled with the results of my breast reduction surgery and highly recommend Dr. Godat and his staff.

Went in expecting a possible run around because I didn’t know if I lost enough weight but the staff was completely welcoming and human and helped me to see things I couldn’t see on my own and I could get help for skin removal. Dr Godat walked in and cemented that feeling. He listened to my history and weight loss stats and told me I did just enough and I was a great candidate for surgery. My surgery date was set and 3 weeks later I had my tummy tuck. The after care was excellent and easy. I thank God for Dr. Godat and his staff!!!! Please call him! He won’t give up on you!

Silicone implants have come a long way. You can choose different shapes depending on how you want your breasts to look.

Today, they are made of “form-stable” silicone that keeps its shape in your body and goes well with gravity and movement.

This eliminates rippling and uneven contours that are typically seen in saline implants. In addition, the feel of silicone implants is much softer and more natural than saline.

On average, a full recovery period usually takes about four to six weeks. For best results, we recommend keeping away from strenuous activities that could disturb your breast tissues from adapting to their new form. 

Those activities include lifting weights, having sexual activities, taking care of children, or doing housework.

You should still be able to breastfeed with implants. Dr. Godat’s years of experience performing breast augmentation on patients planning to breastfeed lets you have the peace of mind that your breast tissues and mammary glands, including milk ducts, won’t get damaged along with the procedure.

Every patient is different. Results may last well over 10 years. Furthermore, most silicone implants are FDA approved for 10-20 years.

After a few weeks with your breast implants, your breasts will begin to bounce and adapt to gravity as the skin around the area stretches and muscles begin to relax. Swelling will subside, and your implants will move to a natural-looking procedure. 

Implants will begin to settle down with your natural contour around the four to six week mark. 

The best way to maintain the results of a breast augmentation is to consult with your board certified plastic surgeon. Your doctor may prescribe you exercise, clothing, medications, and post-surgery care to maintain your breast augmentation results at their best.

At Godat Plastic Surgery, we also recommend our patients undergo breast lift surgery and internal bra surgery for lasting results. 

If your augmentations are in good condition, your surgeon may prescribe a breast lift or an internal bra surgery to keep your breasts perkier and preserve their volume. Breast lift allows the skin around your breasts to hold the implants and your breast tissues securely without sagging.

Restoring Bodies. Changing Lives.

From this moment on, forget everything you have ever heard or read about what age “must do” to your appearance. Forget anything you have ever believed about how “old” you must look at thirty, forty, fifty, or even sixty. Because starting with this moment you are about to look and feel beautiful and confident at all stages of your life.
