The journey of breast augmentation is a deeply personal decision, and understanding the meticulous process involved can help individuals feel more informed and confident about their choices. Dr. Beck, a board-certified surgeon at Beck Aesthetic Surgery in Charlotte, NC, approaches breast augmentation with a unique blend of artistry and precision, ensuring each procedure is tailored to the individual patient.

Starting The Process

The first step in the breast augmentation process involves choosing the right type of implant. Dr. Beck offers a variety of options, including saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants. This decision is carefully made based on factors such as the patient's anatomy, cosmetic goals, and personal preferences. The surgeon's expertise is crucial in guiding patients toward the most suitable choice for achieving the desired results.

Once the type of implant is selected, the next consideration is the placement of the implant, a decision that is equally important for the overall outcome of the procedure. Dr. Beck provides insights into the advantages of both subglandular (above the muscle) and submuscular (under the muscle) placement. Each option comes with its own set of benefits, and the decision depends on factors such as:

  • Recovery time 
  • Post-surgical pain
  • Risk of complications - like capsular contracture.

Dr. Beck's thorough consultation and evaluation process ensures that the chosen implant placement aligns seamlessly with the patient's unique needs and concerns.

Placing The Implant

The actual procedure involves creating a pocket under the breast, where the selected implant is carefully placed to add shape, volume, and projection. Dr. Beck offers several options, including the inframammary incision (in the fold underneath the breast) and the periareolar incision (around the areola). 

The inframammary incision allows for optimal access during the surgery, while the periareolar incision may be preferred in cases where breast augmentation is combined with a lift. Regardless of the chosen incision location, Dr. Beck's expertise ensures that incision lines are mostly invisible, leaving patients with natural-looking results.
