Is Breast Augmentation the Right Choice for Me?

Breasts come in all shapes and sizes, and there is no “right” size or shape. Many women dream of having fuller, rounder breasts and choose to undergo a custom breast augmentation surgery performed by Springfield’s leading plastic surgeon, Dr. Bharat Shah. Due to age, breastfeeding, weight loss, or genetics, your breasts may be smaller than you want or no longer have that appealing perkiness. Breast augmentation is a good option for you if:

  • You would like to restore full, round breasts after volume loss
  • You want to correct breast asymmetry
  • You want larger, fuller breasts
  • You want to restore the look of your “pre-baby” breasts

Dr. Shah Will Guide You Through the Process

If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, the first step is to make an appointment for a private consultation with Dr. Shah. He will ask you questions about your cosmetic goals and go over your medical history with you. Dr. Shah is a very experienced plastic surgeon who is trained in the most advanced surgical techniques. He will help determine if breast augmentation surgery will help you achieve your goals — and if so, which type of implant would achieve the results you envision. Depending on your unique circumstances and preferences, he will recommend either saline or silicone implants or a fat transfer breast augmentation.

Before & After

What About the surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery is typically an outpatient procedure, and you are free to return home to rest and recover the same day. During your surgery, Dr. Shah will make an incision through which he will insert the implant, carefully positioning it. The implant may be placed below your natural breast tissue, or below the chest muscle. The type of incision pattern will reflect the size and type of the implants you have chosen for your enhancement, but are typically placed in the breast crease, or inframammory fold.

How Long Will it Take Me to Recover?

You should expect to experience some soreness and swelling for a week or two following surgery and will have prescription medication to stay comfortable during the initial healing stage. The recovery time is individual and varies from patient to patient, but you should plan on one to two weeksoff from work.

A full recovery, with the implants fully settled into place, will be achieved in six to eight weeks. Dr. Shah will provide you with aftercare instructions, and will be carefully monitoring your recovery, meeting with you several times at follow-up appointments. Recovery from breast augmentation is usually uneventful and not exceptionally painful or difficult.

The Figure You Want, at Last

Imagine having the lovely, round, plump breasts you’ve always wanted — or restoring volume lost due to age, weight loss, or breastfeeding. Dr. Shah is arguably the most accomplished breast augmentation surgeon in the area, and is known for his ability to achieve exceptionally beautiful surgical outcomes with breast enhancement, achieving a look that is balanced, round, and the ideal size and projection for your frame.

Dr. Shah Has the Experience and Expertise You Deserve

It is important to choose a highly skilled surgeon for your breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Shah is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience. Widely recognized as the leading plastic surgeon in the Springfield, Missouri area, he is attentive to every detail and goes above and beyond to surpass your expectations.
