What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation (breast enlargement) surgery in our Nashville or Tullahoma, Tennessee, clinics involves using breast implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy (breast enhancement). If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, breast augmentation surgery (either breast enhancement or breast enlargement) is a choice to consider.
Before surgery, we recommend that all of our patients view some before and after photos to help you determine what size and shape breast implants you want. Please also view video testimonials of actual patients discuss their experience with breast augmentation. In the meantime, if you have any other questions, including average prices, our friendly staff would be happy to answer them for you.
How is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Dr. Marvel will make an incision either under the breast or within the areola and insert the breast implants of your choosing either underneath the pectoralis/chest muscle or just behind the breast. We offer both saline- and silicone-based implants, which are both safe and provide natural-looking results. You will discuss all of your options as far as materials, size, etc., during your initial consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation may be a good option for you if:
- You are physically healthy
- You have realistic expectations
- Your breasts are fully developed
- You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
- You are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
- Your breasts vary in size or shape
- One or both breasts failed to develop normally
However, the procedure does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Dr. Marvel will assist you in making this decision.
What are Typical Breast Augmentation Results?
Breast augmentation can increase fullness and projection of your breasts, improve the balance of your figure, and enhance your self-image and self-confidence. Our patients throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee have been thrilled with their results.
What are Breast Augmentation Costs?
As an elective surgery, the cost is a consideration for many patients. Dr. Marvel does offer patient financing options. Most health insurance plans will not cover cosmetic breast augmentation costs or other procedures related to changing the appearance of your breasts. Some carriers even exclude breast diseases in patients who have breast implants. Carefully review your health insurance policy before making a cosmetic surgery decision.
Also, when choosing a surgeon to perform your procedure for breast enlargement or breast enhancement, please remember the surgeon’s experience with breast implants and your comfort level with your surgeon is just as important as the final cost of the surgery. Dr. Marvel has performed more than a thousand successful procedures and will carefully review all your options before scheduling surgery.
A Breast Augmentation review:
But don’t just take our word for it. See what one of our recent Breast Augmentation patients, Susana Santacruz, had to say about her recent experience with Marvel Cosmetic Surgery. Results are not guaranteed and vary from person to person.
Why did you decide to undergo Breast Augmentation Surgery?
“I wanted to feel better about myself. I am 24 years old and after having my two children my body changed a lot, especially my chest because of breastfeeding. The overall volume and weight in my chest reduced and I didn’t feel like how it looked.”
Tell us about your experience with Dr. Marvel and Marvel Cosmetic Surgery.
“I had been looking for a doctor for a while, but when I met Dr. Marvel he made me feel very comfortable and not pressured. I found other cosmetic surgeons who tried to sell me something I wasn’t asking for. This wasn’t true with Dr. Marvel or his staff. They were patient with me and took the time to answer all my questions in and out of the office. I was a little nervous about the language barrier, but the staff took the time to make me feel comfortable with my decisions.”
Would you recommend Dr. Marvel to others?
“I would highly recommend Dr. Marvel to anyone. I found the surgery itself to be rather painless. I know that’s a surprise! The first week I was a little tender, but I was comfortably active within no time. It was just really great experience overall.”
How has your life changed after Breast Augmentation Surgery?
“I feel better about myself! I feel much more confident about myself when I dress up to go somewhere or to go out. I would say that overall I feel sexier. He did a great job! I can’t recommend Dr. Marvel enough. I couldn’t be happier with my results!”
