Breast Augmentation in Philadelphia
“Breast Augmentation is the management of a patient’s expectations with their body’s limitations.” Dr. Louis P. Bucky approaches each breast augmentation procedure with this philosophy in mind. His main goals when performing this popular procedure are patient safety and satisfaction, coupled with a natural-looking, long-lasting outcome.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to improve the shape and increase the size of a woman’s breasts through the use of breast implants. Dr. Bucky’s patients typically undergo this procedure to achieve a greater proportional balance, address asymmetrical concerns, or restore volume lost over time.
Your Individual Goals
Dr. Bucky will discuss your breast enlargement cosmetic surgery goals with you, and help define a realistic treatment plan. Based on your goals, the dimensions of your breast and body, and your tissue’s characteristics, you and Dr. Bucky will select the appropriate implant. In addition, you will determine the appropriate incision and position of your ideal implant in order to achieve the desired result. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions on how to prepare. You will also schedule a pre-operative appointment to review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and confirm your size choice with our new custom bra sizing system.
Breast Enlargement Procedure Details
On the day of surgery, you will have a final consultation with our Philadelphia plastic surgeon and his team. Your breast augmentation procedure generally takes less than one hour and will be performed under general anesthesia administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist at Pennsylvania Hospital.
Dr. Bucky offers three incision options, which all offer different advantages. Depending on the goals and needs of each patient, Dr. Bucky will help you determine which approach is best:
Inframammary (under the breast)
Transaxillary (through the armpit, performed endoscopically)
Periareolar (around the edge of the nipple)
In addition to determining the best incision option, Dr. Bucky can place the implants underneath the muscle (submuscular) or over the muscle (subglandular). Together, you and Dr. Bucky will decide the best location for your implants, while minimizing the visibility of any possible scarring.
Dr. Bucky works with a Board Certified operating team that has been together for twelve years. Your breast enlargement procedure will have a rapid recovery with Dr. Bucky’s extensive post-operative care program. You will have access to a pre-operative vitamin regimen, personalized nursing, and a post-operative physical therapy and exercise protocol developed specifically for you, if desired.
