Breast Enhancement in Macon, GA

Many women are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts. These women often visit the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua R. Groves. Our clinic is known for helping women in Macon, Warner Robins, Houston County, Bibb County and the surrounding area enhance their physique through a number of breast enhancement procedures.

What is Breast Enhancement?

Breast enhancement refers to any procedure that is designed to improve a woman’s chest area. Breast surgery may be performed to lift sagging breasts, add volume, or correct breasts that are an uneven size or shape. More than one breast enhancement procedure may be performed at the same time. For example, many women choose a breast lift to eliminate sagging, while at the same time having implants inserted to increase volume.

The breast enhancement procedures offered here at the Georgia Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery include:

Benefits of Breast Enhancement

Each woman will notice different benefits from breast surgery; however, a few of the most common ones include:

  • Restoring volume that is lost due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss
  • Lifting sagging breasts that occur because of breastfeeding or a loss of skin elasticity
  • Restoring self-confidence and helping a woman to feel more feminine and beautiful

Requirements for Breast Enhancement

To be a good candidate for breast surgery, you should be at least 18 years of age and in generally good health. Undergoing a breast enhancement will not affect your ability to breastfeed in the future. Even so, you should forego surgery if you are currently pregnant or lactating.

Is Breast Enhancement Right for Me?

The decision to undergo breast enhancement surgery is a personal one that should only be made after carefully discussing the pros and cons with Dr. Groves. It’s important you discuss your goals openly and honestly and have realistic expectations, as this makes it more likely you will be satisfied with your results.

How Involved is a Breast Enhancement Procedure?

Some procedures are more involved than others, but all require local anesthesia at a minimum, as well as one or more incisions to place implants or lift and tighten the skin.

How Long is the Recovery After Breast Enhancement?

Breast augmentation and breast reconstruction surgeries tend to require an overnight stay in the hospital. Many other breast enhancement procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, allowing you to be released within a few hours after surgery. All of them will require you to significantly modify your activities for up to six weeks afterward. Avoid heavy lifting and excessive bending, stooping, twisting, and reaching over your head until after your follow-up appointment with Dr. Groves.

Some swelling and tenderness may also be present near your incision site. To help you manage your discomfort, Dr. Groves may recommend you wear a compression bandage or take medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

How Much Does Breast Enhancement Cost?

Each breast enhancement procedure is customized especially for you, which is why it is not possible to provide you with a cost until after your consultation. During your consultation, we will discuss the cost, and go over our payment options to find one that best suits your needs.

Some procedures may be covered by medical insurance. Our staff is experienced in matters pertaining to insurance, and will work with your carrier to get you maximum coverage. In the event a procedure is not covered, we offer financing through CareCredit® and Alphaeon™Credit. We will be happy to assist in filling out the necessary application, or you may apply on the CareCredit® website prior to your appointment. We work with SunTrust Bank to offer low, fixed interest rate loans to patients with good to excellent credit for all cosmetic procedures, and also accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard®, Visa®, American Express®, and Discover® Card.
