Dr. Klein did an outstanding job with my breast augmentation procedure. From the beginning, he made me feel comfortable and addressed all of my questions and concerns thoroughly. The final outcome was exactly what I had asked for. There weren’t any complications from the surgery and I healed normally. I’m happy to know that I put my trust in someone who followed through with such great results. - A. L.

Who makes the best breast augmentation candidates?
Women who are looking for a moderate to significant increase in their breast size may be candidates for our breast augmentation in Alpharetta or Atlanta, GA, provided that they are in good health, both physically and emotionally, and that they are free from any medical concerns that might impede their surgery or recovery. Breast augmentation patients should also be non-smokers, with realistic expectations for their results based on a confidential consultation with Dr. Klein. Some patients will be candidates for a breast lift in addition to their breast augmentation. Breast augmentation is also often done as part of our mommy makeover procedures in Atlanta.
How can I choose the best breast implants for me?
More than likely, you’ve been considering breast augmentation surgery for a while, which means that you probably already know that your choice of implants is either silicone gel or saline. During your consultation for breast augmentation in our Alpharetta or Atlanta office, we will thoroughly explain your options to help you make a more informed decision. Generally, however, most patients believe that silicone gel implants have a more natural feel.
Among other benefits of gel implants is that rippling is not as likely to occur, most come with a lifetime guarantee, and the new gummy bear implants do not leak. Although silicone gel implants are extremely popular, saline breast implants offer their own advantages. First, because saline implants are not pre-filled, they can be customized while being placed. Second, if your implants do leak or rupture, saline is safely absorbed by your body. Thirdly, and finally, saline implants are slightly less expensive than silicone gel implants.
Types of Breast Implants
At Northside Plastic Surgery, we offer a few different types and brands of breast implants our patients can choose from: Mentor MemoryGel, Sientra OPUS, Allergan Natrelle, and Ideal Implants.
How safe are breast implants?
If you have concerns about the safety of breast implants, then let us know, and we’ll spend the time required to help you understand the risks of breast augmentation surgery so that you can make an informed decision about your procedure. Over the past decade, the safety of breast implants – both silicone gel and saline – have been supported by numerous studies.
What can I expect from my recovery?
Our breast augmentation procedures are performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Most surgeries are completed in one hour, and most women can return to their normal activities (with certain restrictions) after a few days. You should expect to reduce any strenuous activity for two or three weeks after surgery. This reduction in activity includes exercising and lifting heavy objects. Generally, after four weeks, most people will be able to return to normal levels of activity.
