More and more women have been pursuing breast augmentation surgery in hopes of improving their feminine curves. Small or disproportionate breasts can be cause for insecurity, but breast augmentation can enhance your physique by increasing your breast size, defining your bust line, and emphasizing your natural contours.
Named one of Connecticut’s Top Doctors of 2011,2012 and 2013, Dr. Leif Nordberg has extensive experience in breast augmentation and provides his Stamford patients with unmatched care and virtually flawless results. If you are looking for a cosmetic surgeon who will take your concerns seriously and strive to help you reach your goals, we urge you to contact us for more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nordberg.
Understanding the Procedure
The breast augmentation procedure has become one of the most popular in cosmetic surgery in the United States. Modern technology has improved the procedure itself as well as increased the number of options from which the patient can choose. Dr. Nordberg can discuss these options in detail with you during your first appointment to ensure that your care plan is customized to provide you with the best possible result.
You will be given a choice between saline and silicone implants which vary both aesthetically and texturally. Silicone implants tend to look and feel more natural; however, saline implants are still a popular choice, as they can take on an equally natural appearance. Dr. Nordberg takes careful measurements of each patient and thoroughly discusses every option in order to give her the opportunity to make the most educated decision.
Dr. Nordberg will take your wants and needs into account to determine which surgical technique is right for you. He can insert your implant through a number of different incision points such as in the inframammary fold (the natural crease that occurs just below the breast), around the nipple, or through the axilla. A pocket is created for the implant and can be created underneath the pectoral muscle or behind the breast gland.
The breast augmentation surgery will be performed in one day at our fully accredited operating room in Stamford, CT. You will be welcomed into the comfort of our office in the morning, and leave a few hours later. You may experience post-operative discomfort, bruising, and swelling for one to two weeks. During this time, you will be asked to refrain from exercise and limit strenuous activity to ensure that your healing process is successful and free of complications. You will be fitted with a surgical bra that is to be worn for three weeks to ensure that, while your incisions heal, your implants stay in place.
What's New in Breast Augmentation
The Natrelle highly cohesive gel implant was recently approved by the FDA for use in both breast augmentation and reconstruction. It is an anatomically-shaped, textured implant filled with silicone gel that maintains its shape better than traditional gel implants. Dr. Nordberg is certified to use this new implant and can guide a woman through her implant choices in breast augmentation.
