What are my options for breast augmentation in Bellevue, WA?
How will I know which option is right for me?
What should I expect during my breast implant surgery?
Breast implant surgery is performed using IV sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the scope of your procedure. Dr. Bullis will make an incision that enables him to achieve the maximum result from your surgery with the minimum amount of visible scarring. There are a variety of incision options available, and Dr. Bullis will review them with you prior to your procedure.
After the incision is made, Dr. Bullis will insert and position your implant based on a variety of factors, including your specific anatomy, degree of enlargement desired, and the type of implant. Dr. Bullis most frequently uses silicone gel implants for breast augmentation procedures. These are the safest implant options available, with a variety of shapes to choose from, to help you achieve the precise look you want. Once your procedure is complete, Dr. Bullis will close your incision with sutures or surgical tape to ensure a speedy and safe recovery.
What should I expect during my breast implant surgery recovery?
After your surgery, your breasts will be bandaged, and you will need to wear a compression garment or support bra to help minimize swelling and assist with the healing process. You will be monitored by our expert team and allowed to go home once you are stable, typically after several hours.
Once home, you will need to rest for a few days. After about a week or two, you can begin to resume your normal activities. Light activity is okay during this time, but you should refrain from strenuous activity. After about six to eight weeks, you should be able to return to all your normal activities, including any exercise, sports or outdoor hobbies.
What should I expect with a fat transfer breast augmentation procedure?
Fat transfer is commonly referred to as “natural breast augmentation,” as it uses unwanted fat from your own body, extracted through liposuction, and injected into the breasts, for a more subtle enhancement and shorter recovery time. This procedure helps to slim areas of the body with unwanted fat while providing a safe, natural option for breast augmentation.
Liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes fat cells with a thin tube known as a cannula through a small incision. Dr. Bullis offers a variety of liposuction options, including laser- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction to liquify unwanted fat cells so they can be more easily removed with gentle suction.
