In breast augmentation surgery — also known as breast enlargement, mammoplasty or a “boob job” — silicone or saline-filled implants are used to increase the size of a patient’s breasts. This change in appearance can boost self-confidence, which helps explain why breast augmentation ranks as the No. 1 cosmetic procedure in the United States.
Women who undergo Kansas breast augmentation tend to be in overall good health, but are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts. Most choose this procedure because they feel that their natural breasts are too small for their figures. Breast augmentation in KS is also popular following significant weight loss or pregnancy, or to counteract the loss of shape and volume common with aging. Mammoplasty, while often chosen for cosmetic reasons, is also used to reconstruct the breast following a mastectomy or as part of a sex reassignment procedure. With breast augmentation, you can expect a larger and fuller chest with more cleavage.

Breast augmentation in Topeka, breast augmentation in Lawrence and breast augmentation in Manhattan can involve either silicone or saline-filled implants, and there are pros and cons to each type.

Topeka breast augmentation, Lawrence breast augmentation and Manhattan breast augmentation are performed under general anesthesia and usually take about one to two hours. During the procedure, implants are inserted under the skin through small incisions. Depending on the size and type of implant, the incisions can range from one to three inches long. These incisions are usually placed in the belly button or armpit, around the areola or other inconspicuous location to minimize visible scarring. The implants may be inserted over or under the chest muscle (pectoralis major), and once placed inside the chest, they will be carefully moved into a natural position. Then the incisions are closed with sutures.
Following breast augmentation, the chest area will be covered with surgical dressings, and you may be sore for up to a week as the tissues adjust to the new implants. Some pain, swelling and bruising can also be expected, and movement should be restricted. Most patients return to work about a week after their Kansas breast augmentation surgery, although strenuous physical activities should be avoided for up to six weeks.
Topeka breast augmentation prices range from about $4,000 to $8,000. The cost of mammoplasty depends on the type of implant used, as well as other factors.
