"I had been struggling with whether or not I should have a lower body lift after losing a large amount of weight. I made the decision to jump in after taking 4 flights in the span of two months where I was manhandled by TSA because of my extra skin. I chose CSA and Dr. Nuveen after consulting with 2 other practices and I am so glad I did. Dr Nuveen worked a miracle on me and I am still shocked and do a double take every time I pass by a mirror. I look amazing and feel even better. He and his staff are absolutely the best and make you feel so comfortable in a situation that can be overwhelming. I love this practice and staff so much that I will be having a breast lift with implants early next year. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back. That is a priceless gift!"- Anonymous / Facebook / May 09, 2022
"Everyone at CSA is extremely friendly. The surgery went seamlessly. Their client services are excellent. I was given the doctor’s and nurse practitioner’s number to call or text if I had any concerns or questions. The response time for answering my texts was close to immediate. I have never been to a medical office with such wonderful employees."- L.T. / Google / Nov 07, 2022
HOW IS BREAST AUGMENTATION DONE?
The decision to go through with cosmetic breast surgery is personal. If you are considering this procedure, it is essential you do it for the right reasons. You should be healthy and at a normal weight with breasts that are developed and be the right age to receive implants. If you are unhappy with the aesthetics of your breasts because they seem small or asymmetrical, you may benefit from breast augmentation surgery. During the procedure, an incision is created and then the implant will be slipped into its position. There are two methods that may be applied for implant placement. These include either under the pectoral muscle or submammary/subglandular placement (over the pec muscle). Where to place the breast implant depends on varying factors, including the type and degree of implant enlargement. Regardless of the incision, scarring is generally unnoticeable. Implant placement is based upon your body type, implant size, and lifestyle.
Breast Augmentation FAQ
How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your breast augmentation cost will depend on your implant choices and whether you have other surgeries at the same time. When we develop your treatment plan, Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin will talk to you about estimated costs and financing options. It's better to focus on quality over costs to ensure your results match your goals and last a long time.
Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your plan may include breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. Breast lift surgery removes loose skin and raises the position of the breasts while implants enhance the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin, they will listen to your needs and goals before discussing your best treatment options. We often combine an augmentation and a breast lift as part of a mommy makeover to revitalize the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after augmentation surgery, please talk to Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after implants with the proper placement and technique. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results so it is best to wait until after you no longer want children to get breast augmentation.
Can I have my implants removed?
You may decide at some point that you want to remove or replace your implants. Should this happen, Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin offer breast revision surgery. During the revision surgery, your old implants will be either replaced with new implants or removed. If you choose to have your implants removed, you may need to have a breast lift because larger implants may stretch your skin. For any questions or concerns after your augmentation surgery, please schedule an appointment at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates to learn more about your options.
Do implants cause breast cancer?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in the process of investigating a possible link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). This isn't breast cancer, but it is a cancer of the immune cells. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), implant-related ALCL is very rare, and when caught early, it is easy to treat. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin encourage all patients with breast implants to get frequent screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates if you see any concerns, like swelling.
