I have absolutely no regrets about having this surgery at age 17. I look and feel so much better. My back pain went away almost immediately, which was a huge relief. I am really happy with it and I think that it was one of the best decisions that I have ever made.

What Can Breast Augmentation Address?

Breast augmentation surgery is a popular choice for many women in Charlotte seeking to address various concerns and enhance the appearance of their breasts. Common motivations for undergoing breast augmentation include:

  • Post-Pregnancy Size Changes: Women often opt for breast augmentation to restore breast volume or augment smaller breasts after experiencing size changes due to pregnancy.
  • Significant Loss of Breast Volume After Pregnancy:  Women in Charlotte may experience a substantial reduction in breast tissue volume following pregnancy, breastfeeding, or post-baby weight loss. Many choose breast augmentation to regain their pre-pregnancy breast appearance.
  • Tuberous Breasts: Conditions like tuberous breasts can impede proper breast development. Breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Ditesheim is a solution to correct this issue and provide a natural-looking breast appearance.
  • Asymmetrical Breasts: While breast asymmetry is common, some Omaha women may experience noticeable differences in breast sizes, making it challenging to find well-fitting bras or swimwear. Breast augmentation can help balance breast volume and create a more symmetrical appearance.
  • Desire for Increased Size and Volume in Naturally Small Breasts: Women who have always desired larger or more voluminous breasts, feeling dissatisfied with their natural size, can achieve their desired look through breast augmentation. This surgical procedure is tailored to complement their physique and enhance overall silhouette.

What to Expect During Your Consultation?

Dr. Ditesheim is committed to ensuring that patients in Charlotte are well-informed about their implant options and what best suits their individual needs. Throughout your consultation, Dr. Ditesheim will guide you in choosing the correct size, profile, shape, and type of implant by”

  • Comprehensive Breast Examination and Attentive Listening: Thoroughly examining your breasts while actively listening to your concerns.
  • Precise Chest Measurements: Measure the length and width of your chest to determine a proportionate and harmonious size.
  • Advanced 3D Simulation with Vectra Breast Imaging: Employing high-definition photos to create a 3D simulation using Vectra 3D breast imaging, visually representing potential outcomes.
  • Reviewing Implant Options Using 3D Simulation:  Going through various implant sizes and shapes via 3D simulation to identify the ideal breast size and shape for your unique body type.
  • Trial of Different Sizes with Specialized Sports Bra: Allowing you to try on different implant sizes using a specialized sports bra for a realistic preview of post-surgery results.
  • Discussion on Expectations and Potential Variances: Engaging in a discussion about expectations and addressing how surgical results may differ from the computer program.

Moreover, during the consultation, Dr. Ditesheim will formulate a tailored approach to your breast augmentation surgery, delving into not only the choice of implant type and size but also determining the optimal incision method. While both saline and silicone implants are safe and FDA-approved, Dr. Ditesheim typically recommends silicone implants for their closer resemblance to natural breast tissue and diminished detectability.

A Personalized Experience

Depending upon the combination of your physical characteristics and your concerns, Dr. Ditesheim will suggest a variety of options for breast enhancement surgery in Charlotte that include:

book appointment

All breast augmentation incisions will be as inconspicuous as possible, as Dr. Ditesheim understands that visible scarring is a leading concern among breast augmentation patients. Your unique incision pattern is based on the type of breast implant, implant size, and either your or Dr. Ditesheim’s preference.

PERIAREOLAR INCISION

This technique involves creating an incision around the areola's circumference, the dark skin encircling the nipple. Typically chosen for women experiencing mild sagging and seeking to avoid larger implants.

INFRAMMAMARY INCISION

The term "Infra" signifies "below," and "mammary" pertains to the breasts. Consequently, the inframammary incision is created directly beneath the breast, within the crease where the lower part of the breast meets the chest skin.

TRANSAXILLARY INCISION

An incision is performed in the armpit through a transaxillary approach, utilizing the natural fold present in that area. Following the incision, a pathway to the breast is established, and a pocket is crafted behind the breast to accommodate the implant.

A major factor of the final look and feel of your implants are where they are placed in the breast pocket. Dr. Ditesheim offers four placement options: Under the pectoralis muscle (submuscular placement), Over the chest muscle, under breast tissue (subglandular placement), Partially underneath the muscle (dual plane placement), Under the fascia. The method used during your unique breast implant surgery depends on your desired results and Dr. Ditesheim’s recommendation. If saline implants are used, they can be filled with saline after the implants are placed in the correct location.

SUBMUSCULAR PLACEMENT

This technique includes placement of the implant partially under the pectoralis major chest muscle

SUBGLANDULAR PLACEMENT

In this technique breast implant is positioned between the existing breast tissue areas and the chest muscle.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Breast Implant

It’s important to understand that picking out the right implant isn’t just about increasing total cup size. It’s about creating an ideal aesthetic shape based on each individual’s personal goals and current anatomy. Dr. Ditesheim’s unique sizing process allows patients interested in breast augmentation to experience different sizes and shapes of implants to see how they might prefer one or the other. He trusts those who come in for a consultation to know in general what’s right for their goals, and he’ll recommend the surgical techniques to help them achieve it.

Choosing Implant Material

Dr. Ditesheim has performed hundreds of breast augmentations using both saline and silicone breast implants, either of which can deliver beautiful, natural-looking results in the right candidates. Together, you and Dr. Ditesheim will go over the details of each implant type in order to determine if there’s one that might better meet your goals for breast augmentation surgery in Charlotte.

SALINE BREAST IMPLANTS

Saline implants are less expensive than silicone ones and are FDA-approved for cosmetic use in women 18 and older. Since the implants are inserted empty and filled after placement, women who opt for saline implants typically have smaller scars. Filling after placement also allows for more precisely symmetrical results, particularly in women with significant asymmetry prior to surgery. Although saline implants can sometimes show visible surface rippling or wrinkles, they remain a cost-effective choice that can deliver beautiful results in the right candidate.

SILICONE BREAST IMPLANTS

Silicone gel implants are FDA-approved for cosmetic use in women 22 and older and are currently the more popular choice for breast augmentation among breast augmentation patients in Charlotte. Filled with a thick silicone gel that has a jelly-like texture, silicone implants won’t wrinkle, and the contents are designed to stay in place even in the unlikely event of a breach in the outer implant shell.

GUMMY BEAR IMPLANTS

Gummy bear implants offer a third choice for women seeking breast augmentation procedures from plastic surgeons. A different type of silicone implant, the form-stable silicone gel in gummy bear implants is firm yet soft, much like the gummy candies they’re nicknamed after.

Charlotte Breast Augmentation Cost

The expense associated with breast augmentation surgery varies within the range of $XXXX to $XXXX, encompassing all components such as the surgeon's fee, operating room fee, anesthetic fee, and other related expenses involved in the procedure. The pricing for breast augmentation is contingent on several factors, and during your consultation, you will receive a precise quote. This quote covers expenses for breast implants, surgical care, the facility, and anesthesia administered by a licensed anesthesiologist. Financial options are accessible, and we will discuss them during your individual consultation. The cost fluctuates based on the technique and complexity of the procedure.

Dr. Ditesheim’s Unique Sizing Process

The type, size, and placement of your breast implants are determined by a number of factors, including your goals from surgery, breast anatomy, skin elasticity, and body proportions.

We feel that our sizing process provides patients with an accurate method of “previewing” the results of your Charlotte breast augmentation before going under the knife. By providing clear expectations from the first consultation, Dr. Ditesheim’s patients are deeply satisfied with their finished results, which meet or exceed their expectations.

Here’s how our sizing process works:

  • We’ll go over your options: saline or silicone implants, shaped vs. round, size, and profile, paying attention to your personal preferences about all of these choices.
  • You’ll get time to try on implants to find the “custom fit” that best complements your body shape, your chest, and your idea of what looks great on you.
  • You will be able to “feel” the shape of your new breast size and even see what you look like in tops or camisoles.

Can I Combine Breast Augmentation with Other Procedures?

Yes, it is possible to combine breast augmentation with other cosmetic procedures, depending on your individual goals and health considerations. Some common combinations include: Breast Lift (Mastopexy), Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), Liposuction and Mommy Makeover. It’s essential to consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your specific goals, assess your overall health, and determine the best combination of procedures for you. Combining surgeries can offer comprehensive results and may reduce overall recovery time compared to having multiple separate procedures.

In this instance, the following patient illustrates the integration of breast augmentation with a tummy tuck, accompanied by liposuction 360, focusing on fat reduction in the abdomen, back, bra area, and waist.
