Enhance your curves with a breast augmentation customized just for you! Our Atlanta plastic surgeons can help you get just the look you want, whether it's more ample cleavage or a subtle, naturally shaped result. Read on to learn more about your breast enhancement options.
Enhance your already gorgeous curves with a variety of safe and effective breast enhancement options in Atlanta. Breast augmentation can also help correct breast asymmetry (when one breast is noticeably smaller than the other).
Breast augmentation will increase your breast size, as well as improve the shape of your breasts. Many women say they feel much more proportionate in their clothing and swimsuits after having breast augmentation surgery.
Your Complimentary Breast Augmentation Consultation
All aspects of your desired outcome will be discussed during your personalized consultation. The key to success is working with an experienced, board certified plastic surgeon who will answer any questions you may have regarding breast augmentation and the latest techniques and enhancement options available. Our team will work together with you to personalize the procedure to fit your individual needs and desired results.
Now, let’s discuss your body shape and the curves you are wanting! Your current breast size, along with your desired outcome, is all taken into account as you discuss options and make decisions with your doctor. Our surgeons here at The Swan Center work closely with their patients to help determine the best approach for breast augmentation, whether that is silicone or saline breast implants or fat transfer to the breast.
Every woman is unique, and so careful consideration must be given to each individual patient and her desired outcome. Additional techniques and procedures may be discussed during your consultation, including a breast lift, to help achieve your desired look.
Today, there are three different types of breast enhancement options available to women. At our Atlanta practice, we offer all three. This means patients have more options to ensure safe, beautiful surgical results to achieve their individual aesthetic goals.
Dr. Bauer listened to all my concerns and really paid attention to what I asked for. I am so satisfied with the way my breasts look – even only 2 months after surgery they are healing great and look so natural.
Next-generation silicone implants have been available since 2005. These implants are manufactured using a silicone shell filled with a cohesive silicone gel. Many patients consider silicone implants to have the most natural look and feel, most closely resembling natural breast tissue.
Silicone implants can give a fuller, more natural appearance. Incision site and placement are dependent on your natural anatomy, implant choice, and personal goals, and are based on your consultation with your board certified plastic surgeon.
Patients love silicone breast implants because they keep their shape so nicely and look and feel like real breast tissue. They also come in a range of sizes, projections, and composition, such as ultra-cohesive, i.e. gummy bear implants. Another benefit of silicone implants is that they will not affect routine mammograms, ultrasound, or MRIs. Although unlikely, any changes to your implants will be seen during routine imaging.
Saline breast implants
Saline implants are comprised of an outer silicone shell that is filled with saline, a sterile saltwater solution. This option offers greater flexibility with surgical incisions and placement. Saline implants are filled after insertion, allowing for the smallest incisions of all the implant options. Saline implants work best for patients who already have a fair amount of natural breast tissue. In the unlikely case of an implant rupture, the sterile saline solution is safely absorbed by your body. Saline breast implants are also unaffected by routine breast screenings.
Fat transfer to the breast
Did you know you can enhance the appearance of your breasts without breast implants? In the hands of one of our experienced plastic surgeons, fat transfer to the breasts is a safe option for giving your breasts a naturally fuller, more shapely look. Essentially, fat transfer to the breasts is exactly what it sounds like: fat is taken from one area of your body (typically the hips, abdomen, or thighs) and strategically re-injected into your breasts to provide a fuller, more shapely appearance.
Dr. Cat and the nurses I’ve had the pleasure of working with through this whole process have been above and beyond incredible! From my first consult to each and every appointment following they have made it such an easy process. Dr.Cat really listened and understood exactly what I wanted to accomplish with my surgery and my results were exactly what I wanted!
Every woman has unique and specific aesthetic goals based on her individual preferences. We will discuss your goals and expectations and help you decide which breast enhancement procedure is right for you. Your complimentary consultation will also help you feel more informed about all of the breast enhancement options available to you.
From implant type to incision and placement, we believe that educating patients is a top priority and feel that our educational approach helps women make informed decisions.

Where will my breast implants be placed?
There are two general options when it comes to your breast implant placement: directly behind the breast tissue and above the pectoralis muscle (subglandular placement), and beneath the pectoralis muscle (submuscular placement). A third, less frequently used option is called partial submuscular placement, in which the implant is partially covered by the pec muscle.
Most of our female patients are good candidates for suglandular placement, as this typically provides the most aesthetically-pleasing results and allows patients to retain their natural range of motion. Your breast implant placement will ultimately depend on your aesthetic goals, body type, and plastic surgeon’s preference, and will be discussed during your breast augmentation consultation.
Where will my breast implant incisions be placed?
There are three places plastic surgeons typically place breast implant incisions: beneath the breast within its natural fold (inframammary incision); around the lower circumference of the nipple-areolar complex (periareolar incision); and in the natural crease of the armpit (axillary incision). You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision placement is ideal for your breast augmentation during your personal consultation.
What is having breast surgery like?
First, you will receive general anesthesia delivered by a board certified anesthesiologist to ensure that you will remain completely asleep throughout your entire procedure.
You’ll wake up after the procedure and immediately notice your new shape. While you will be a bit sore and swollen, most of our patients report that post-surgical discomfort is minimal. Once you have had some time to rest in our relaxing recovery room, it’s time to get you home and cozy. Although this procedure is quick and you will be able to go home afterward, you will need to secure someone to drive you home and help you out for the first day or two.
What is recovery like from breast augmentation?
After surgery, all post-procedure supplies and garments for your recovery will have been provided, alleviating any stress and allowing you to focus on you! Light activities can be resumed as tolerated, and aerobic activities can be started in about 3 weeks. You can expect to be back at work in about 4 days. It will take up to 6 months for your breasts to fully settle. Be sure to follow the personalized post-op instructions we provide before surgery and call us with any questions!
