  • Weight loss has changed the size of your breasts.

Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

Beautiful Results

Advanced breast augmentation techniques and additional breast implant choices enable board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Colville to produce breast augmentation results that are better than ever. Your successful breast augmentation surgery begins with your consultation, during which Dr. Colville discusses the procedure and your options and listens to you describe your cosmetic goals. A physical examination will help you choose the size of implants that will look best on you.

With the VECTRA® 3D imaging system, you can get realistic views of your possible results with implants of different sizes and shapes.

The Latest Options in Breast Implants

Dr. Colville generally uses Allergan®, Mentor®, and Sientra® silicone gel and saline implants. The shaped and textured silicone cohesive gel implants used by Dr. Colville include Allergan NATRELLE® 410, Mentor MemoryShape®, and Sientra implants. He also offers NATRELLE INSPIRA™ implants, an innovative option for women interested in enhanced breast fullness. INSPIRA implants are round, silicone-filled, textured implants that combine a fuller appearance with a soft feel.

Dr. Colville was one of the few plastic surgeons in Ohio chosen to participate in studies of these innovative implants before they gained FDA approval. Together, you and Dr. Colville will decide on the implant style and size that will provide the look you desire.

Your Surgery

Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed by Dr. Colville using a general anesthetic. Dr. Colville's "no-touch" technique for surgery typically takes approximately 1 hour. Implants are inserted through small incisions that are typically made either at the inframammary fold — an inconspicuous location where the bottom of the breast connects to the chest — or on the edge of the areola. For most procedures, Dr. Colville uses the Keller Funnel™, an innovative device that allows surgeons to insert either saline or silicone implants without touching them or using force, limiting post-surgical bruising. Using the Keller Funnel also allows Dr. Colville to make smaller incisions than would otherwise be necessary.

Breast Augmentation Incisions

Like all surgical procedures, there are risks associated with breast augmentation, which Dr. Colville will discuss in detail at your consultation. Some of the risks specific to breast implant surgery include increase or decrease in nipple or breast skin sensation, scarring, capsular contracture, wrinkling or rippling, and implant rupture. If you've undergone breast augmentation elsewhere and are experiencing any of these complications, Dr. Colville specializes in complex breast implant revision.

Rapid Recovery

Dr. Colville's goal is for each breast augmentation patient to have a rapid recovery. Most patients, if they follow his post-operative instructions, can begin routine (not strenuous) activities within 24 hours of the procedure.

You'll return home after surgery, with a small, clear, waterproof dressing over each incision. There are no drains. A post-operative bra or garment is not necessary, but may be worn if desired. After arriving home from surgery, you will probably want a short rest. It's important, however, to move around on the day of surgery to enhance your circulation.

A relaxing shower to wash away the after-effects of surgery is nice, and you may even want to leave the house for a brief outing or dinner. You're encouraged to lie forward onto your chest on the evening of surgery to help keep your chest (pectoral) muscles relaxed. Standing and moving the arms straight over the head (until arms touch the side of your head) is also very helpful.
