To prepare you for a safe and successful Breast Enhancement, Dr. Quinn may direct you to stop smoking before and after surgery. You may also need to stop or reduce any blood-thinning medications before your Breast Enhancement and one week after. This is to ensure your health and to aid in your body’s healing process. Dr. Quinn may also instruct you to appoint a trusted adult to drive you home from surgery and stay with you for at least 24 hours following your procedure. Dr. Quinn may prescribe you certain medications to pick up prior to surgery.
Dr. Quinn and team will discuss any preparation instructions with you during your pre-op appointment.
There are several Breast Enhancement surgeries Dr. Quinn performs: Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Lift with Implants, and Breast Reconstruction. These options can give you the bust you desire in one, comprehensive surgery.
Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)
Breast augmentation is a procedure where the breasts are made larger or fuller through the use of breast implants. During your Breast Augmentation consultation, you will have the opportunity to select the size and type of your breast implants.
Dr. Quinn will work with you to help you select the options that will provide the best aesthetic outcome for you.
Breast Augmentation is performed through making either a transaxillary (in the underarm) or an inframammary (in the breast crease) incision to place the breast implant. Your implants will be placed either in front of or behind the muscles of the chest wall.
If you opt for saline implants, they will be positioned in the breast pocket while empty. Dr. Quinn will fill the implants with a sterile saline solution to the appropriate volume. Once the breast implants are positioned properly, Dr. Quinn will close the incision sites, leaving you with a fuller, more volumized bust!
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
The Breast Lift procedure is utilized to address ptosis (drooping or sagging) of the breasts that can occur from aging, childbirth, and breastfeeding, and/or major weight loss. Depending on the degree of ptosis present, Dr. Quinn will make an incision to execute the breast lift. This incision pattern is called the Anchor incision. He will remove excess skin and fat from the breasts, redistribute the remaining breast tissue within the breast envelope, and reposition the nipple-areola complex. This results in breasts that sit higher on the chest and look fuller and firmer.
Breast Lift with Implants
Breast Lift with Implants procedure is a combination of a Breast Augmentation and a Breast Lift. If you are a candidate for this procedure, it is likely you experience drooping of the breasts, along with a desire to increase the size of your bust beyond what may be achieved with a lift alone. Dr. Quinn will perform a breast lift with an Anchor incision, removing redundant skin. The breasts will be reshaped and the nipple-areola complex will be repositioned. Before the incisions are sutured closed, Dr. Quinn will place breast implants into the breast pocket. Your breasts will not only be lifted, but also volumized and shaped, giving you upper pole fullness.
Breast Reconstruction (Mastectomy Reconstruction)
Breast Reconstruction is a surgical procedure to address the aesthetic of the breasts following injury, defect, or mastectomy. Breast reconstruction can be performed to make the breasts more symmetrical, to enhance the size or shape of the breast, or to simply achieve the image you may hold for yourself. Breast Reconstruction can include breast implants and/or a tissue graft. A tissue expander may be used in the breast in order to stretch the skin to accommodate a breast implant, if needed. Breast Reconstruction can restore your feminine curves and enhance your profile once again.
