Breast augmentation in Charlotte NC can be the key to achieving a more feminine, rounded and alluring figure. Whether you are seeking a modest increase in bust size or are looking for a complete transformation, breast implants can help improve breast asymmetry and give you the confident, beautiful presentation you seek. Dr. Pratt will guide you on the path to choosing the perfect breast implants for your body, lifestyle and aesthetic desires.

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation can accomplish a variety of aesthetic improvements, including increased breast volume, improved breast shape, improved breast symmetry, and of course, a boost in self-confidence. With breast implants, volume is restored, which is the first step to a more youthful look. Breast implants can also help to facilitate a more optimal breast shape. Dr. Pratt believes that optimizing both size and shape are equally essential in producing results that are truly exceptional.

What are the different types of implants available?

  • Silicone implants are the most commonly used breast implant in aesthetic breast surgery. Silicone implants offer the distinct advantage of a more natural feeling implant that is not as prone to visible wrinkling through the skin.
  • Saline implants offer the advantage of being placed through slightly smaller incisions and the ability to physically add or subtract saline solution to achieve a particular look or firmness.
  • Implants referred to as “gummy bear” or  “gummy implants”  is a type of silicone implant known for its ability to maximize breast the outward projection of a breast implant through a form stable highly cohesive gel filler – similar to what  you would see on the inside of an actual gummy bear.

What are the options for the incision?

Dr. Pratt will meet with you in private for an in-depth consultation during which he will discuss the pros and cons of each incision location. The following are discussed as options:

Periareolar – Here the incision is made around the outer edge of the areola in a semicircle. Larger areolars, and woman with very indistinct breast folds are excellent candidates for this approach.

Inframammary – The gold standard in approaches for breast augmentation. The incision is hidden within the natural breast crease.  A versatile incision that allows for maximal precision in developing the pocket where your implants will be placed.

Transaxillary – In this case, the incision is made within the armpit through which an unfilled saline implant can be threaded. Although this approach keeps the incision off the breast, it is not without its limitations.

Getting breast augmentation was a long time coming. I was interested in getting a natural, proportionate look with the new Ideal implants and did a lot of research from plastic surgeons around the area for the results I wanted. Getting elective surgery is obviously a huge decision and the most important factor is which doctor you choose. Dr. Pratt is very kind, warm, and caring. What I like about him is that he gives you very realistic expectations according to your body and doesn't prefer to use silicone due to it's safety risks. Overall, I would definitely recommend going to Dr. Pratt if you are considering a BA.
