Breast Augmentation Washington, DC

Breast AugmentationA breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, enlarges the size of the breasts using inflatable implants filled with either saline or silicone gel. It can be done to enhance your body contour if you feel that your breasts are too small, to balance breast size when there is a significant difference between the sizes of your breasts, and for a number of other medical and personal reasons.

It is your decision whether to use saline or silicone implants; however, many of our patients choose silicone gel implants due to their similar feel to natural breasts. The implants are inserted either behind the breast tissue, or partially or completely under the chest muscles; Dr. Olding will work with you to determine which option is best for you.

The implants are placed during an outpatient procedure. Patients generally return to work within a week or two. It may take several months to a year or more for scars to fade. The larger the implant, the more unnatural the result.

Patients may experience temporary pain, swelling, bruising, or a change in nipple sensation. Potential complications include implant rupture, development of scar tissue, bleeding, infection, or a change in the sensitivity of the nipples.

Online Resources

There are a number of online resources to help educate you about a breast augmentation procedure, and to help you visualize what you might look like after having undergone a breast augmentation. We typically use MENTOR® Breast Implants in our breast augmentations; the manufacturer provides many before and after photos of real breast augmentation patients .

You can also use the MENTOR® Visualizer to virtually “try on” different sizes, shapes, and placements of MENTOR® Breast Implants. This will also help Dr. Olding to understand your expectations and desired results. Visit their website to use the MENTOR® Visualizer before your consultation.

MENTOR® Breast Implant Warranty

Your MENTOR® Breast Implants are guaranteed for your lifetime. Any patient who undergoes a breast augmentation with MENTOR® Breast Implants is automatically enrolled in a MENTOR® Promise™ Protection Plan – if your implants rupture or deflate, you will receive up to two replacement breast implants of the same style at no charge to you. You can learn more about the MENTOR® Promise™ Protection Plan on their website.

Important Announcement

I am committed to the health and safety of my patients. Public health officials have mandated the cancellation of elective surgeries, and for the protection of our patients and their families, we will not be seeing elective patients until the ban on doing so is lifted. Therefore, for the next few weeks, we will not be scheduling new appointments or procedures; however, our staff will continue to be available to take phone calls and answer your questions. Once we have some glitches out of the system, you will be able to have a virtual consult with me – stay tuned!
