Breast Augmentation

For some women, a lack of volume, asymmetry or shape in the breast may make it more difficult to feel confident. Thankfully, breast augmentation is a safe way to dramatically improve overall body image.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery enhancement procedures and boasts the highest patient satisfaction rating. It's a safe option to improve your overall body image and offers a relatively quick recovery with dramatic results. You may consider breast augmentation surgery if you would like to increase your breast size, correct an issue with asymmetry (one breast larger than the other) and improve the overall shape and look.

Breast implants come in all shapes and sizes. During your consultation, Dr. Schleicher will work with you to recommend the best options for your body type and the outcome you desire.

What to Expect

Breast augmentation surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Oral pain medication can be prescribed to help you manage any initial discomfort or pain you may experience. Following surgery you will be instructed to wear an elastic bra. It will help hold your breasts in the correct position, promote healing and maintain the desired results. Sutures will be removed within 7 to 12 days during your follow-up. You can resume light activities when you feel up to it, but should avoid strenuous activities for about 3 weeks. You can expect to go back to work in approximately 4 days and see final results in about 6 months.


Deciding if breast augmentation is right for you and the specific risks involved can only be determined after a consultation with Dr. Schleicher . All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally, while major complications are unusual.
