At Cannon Plastics, we believe in health before beauty and in beauty is a means of healing the spirit. That is true of patients who are re-building lives after cancer and true of patients looking for a new lease on life through breast augmentation.
Today, breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in the United States, and it is estimated that more than 1% of the adult female population has undergone the procedure, with a very high rate of patient satisfaction. Breast Augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis, with a check-up the following day and then again one week after surgery.
Dr. Cliff L. Cannon is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive breast care. He is Member of the Executive Committee at the Memorial Health Center for Breast Care in Savannah.
About Breast Augmentation Surgery
At Cannon Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, our first goal is to understand your concerns are and to determine a realistic course of individualized care.
The most popular reasons women seek breast rejuvenation of any kind are to look better without clothes and to feel better about themselves, and most report restored self-image and increased self-assurance following surgery. Nevertheless, each woman is different, their reasons for seeking the procedure myriad, and it is true that not every woman is an ideal candidate for surgery.
If you are a candidate for breast augmentation and/or a breast lift, breast rejuvenation, or breast reduction, Dr. Cannon will recommend a surgical approach after consideration of your desired result, your physiognomy, and with the following in mind: your height and frame, including width across the shoulders and pelvic width, and your existing breast size, fullness, proportion, symmetry, nipple position and overall skin laxity.
What to Expect from Breast Augmentation Surgery
Generally, women should expect to take a week off after surgery, and should have most restrictions lifted after two weeks.
Dr. Cannon will prescribe a month-long course of self-massage, and most patients can expect near final result at six weeks, although the breast will continue to change for six months to a year.
