"I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Marshall, he literally changed my life!!! I did a lot of research before deciding to have him perform my tummy tuck, and am SO glad I went with him as my doctor! I needed someone who made me feel comfortable (his bedside manner is the best) and confident that the procedure would be worth it, and he did exactly that - my results are waaaaaay better than I could have expected! I have my confidence back after not recognizing myself in the mirror post-pregnancy, and finally feel like myself again! THANK YOU!!!"- K.R. / Google / Dec 04, 2021

Who is a candidate for breast augmentation?
The decision to go through with breast enlargement surgery is personal. If you are thinking about having this treatment, 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 dissatisfied with the size and shape of your breasts because they appear deflated, you could benefit from this surgery. In addition, if your breasts have changed due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss, this surgical procedure can give them life with increased shape and fullness. It is also a welcomed option if you lift weights or have little to no original breast mass.
Breast Augmentation Surgical Technique
The decision to undergo breast enhancement surgery is personal. If you are contemplating this treatment, it is important to do it for yourself. You should be healthy and at a normal weight with breasts that are developed and be the right age to receive implants. While you are under general anesthesia, an incision will be made, and the chosen implant will be placed through the incision and deposited into a pocket created for it, and then secured into its proper position. The incision is then carefully secured with skin adhesives or sutures. You will be sent home wearing a recovery compression bra to help reduce swelling. Several days after surgery, the swelling and bruising should decrease, and your breasts will begin to settle into their new position. Many patients can engage in normal activities within the first week; however, strenuous exercise should be avoided for about 6 – 8 weeks. Breast augmentation surgery creates gorgeous outcomes that look and feel natural.
Breast Augmentation FAQ
How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your total cost for breast augmentation surgery will vary depending on your implant choices and whether you are getting any other surgeries. Once your treatment plan is developed, Dr. Marshall can talk to you about estimated costs as well as financing. To ensure you are happy with your results and they last a long time, it is better to focus on quality over low costs.
Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your plan may include implants, a breast lift, or both. A breast lift removes loose skin and raises the position of the breasts, while augmentation addresses the shape and size of the breasts. In your consultation with Dr. Marshall, he will listen to your needs and goals before discussing your treatment options. An augmentation and lift are often a 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, be sure to tell Dr. Marshall during your consultation. It's usually possible to breastfeed after implants with the right placement and technique. Breastfeeding and pregnancy can affect your results, so it is better to wait until your family is complete to have breast surgery.
Can I have my implants removed?
You may decide that you want to replace or remove your implants. Should this happen, Dr. Marshall can perform breast revision surgery. During the revision surgery, your current implants can either be 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 can stretch your skin. If you have any questions or concerns after your breast augmentation surgery, schedule a consultation at Andre Marshall Plastic Surgery to learn more about your options.
Do implants cause breast cancer?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating a possible link between implants and ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma). This isn't breast cancer; it is a cancer of the immune cells. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), implant-related ALCL is very rare, and if caught early, it's highly treatable. Dr. Marshall encourages all patients with breast implants to get regular screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Andre Marshall Plastic Surgery if you notice any concerns, like swelling or other visible changes.
