Breast augmentation surgery has become increasingly popular over the years, with many women opting for the procedure to enhance their appearance or address breast asymmetry. While breast augmentation in Michigan and the United States is a safe and effective procedure, it is normal to have questions and concerns before undergoing any procedure. Today, we will answer some of the most common questions regarding breast augmentation surgery.
Is Breast Augmentation Safe?
Safety is a top priority for Breast Augmentation Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Michael W. Gray, DO, FACOS, BS from the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa ( West Bloomfield, Michigan ) , and breast augmentation is no exception. The FDA mark of approval is a stamp of safety. Not only has the FDA approved both silicone and saline-filled implants for the purposes of enhancing or reconstructing breasts, but also numerous other government and independent research organizations have evaluated the safety and quality of breast augmentation surgery and have also concluded that they are safe.

How Painful is Breast Augmentation?
Pain levels are subjective to the individual, but most patients according to Dr. Gray who undergo breast augmentation surgery from Michigan or from around the world experience only minimal discomfort during the first few days following the procedure. Dr. Gray’s operative technique is specifically designed to minimize tissue trauma, which can help reduce the risk of complications and promote a smoother, less painful healing process. In fact, many patients do not require opioid pain medication to manage post-operative discomfort. One of the techniques that has contributed to this easy recovery is Dr. Gray’s “Scarless” Breast Augmentation called EndoBAM. In this procedure a small incision is made in the ‘belly button‘ where saline implants can be inserted under or over the muscle. This technique has the lowest risks for any and all complications of breast augmentation. Proper sizing perfected by Dr. Gray and postoperative instructions and direction has led to marked success of Dr. Grays results compared to other physicians around the world. This has led to Dr. Gray being sought after by patients from around the world.
Can I Breastfeed With Breast Implants?
While breast augmentation surgery doesn’t impact lactation as the implant is not in the breast itself, the placement of an implant for breast augmentation is BELOW the breast or BELOW the muscle. As such, it is the technique of the surgeon and the method of placement that matters most. Breast feeding is a physiologic process of the body and all women do not produce enough milk to breast feed and this occurs regardless of implants and a result of one or more factors that are not related to breast augmentation. If planning to breast feed the Areola (nipple) approach should be avoided. This approach divided the most milk ducks. In comparing techniques, the peripheral approaches in order divide the least. These are EndoBAM, Inframammary and Axillary (armpit). Nonetheless, if you plan to have children in the future and desire to breastfeed, it’s essential to communicate your intentions with your surgeon. This way, they can customize your surgical and treatment plan to protect your ability to breastfeed. Dr. Gray is a skilled Cosmetic surgeon who understands the importance of preserving this capability for his patients. So don’t hesitate to discuss your plans and concerns with him.
What Type of Bra Should I Wear After Breast Augmentation?
At Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa, Dr. Michael Gray takes a personalized approach to each patient’s breast augmentation surgery. During your pre-surgical consultations, he will recommend bra types that best suit your unique needs, anatomy, and implants. In general, Dr. Gray suggests avoiding compression, tops that produce cleavage or push up and underwire bras for the first six weeks post-surgery. These restrictions and well as other instructions are just as important to the end result as surgery itself. All directions given to patients by Dr. Gray serve to minimize the risk of implant displacement and reduce irritation around Inframammary incision sites if present. By following these guidelines, you can help ensure a smooth and comfortable recovery after your breast augmentation procedure and enhanced results.

What Can I Expect During Recovery?
The recovery period after breast enhancement surgery can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. However, in general, most patients can return to work within a week or two following surgery. It is important to avoid strenuous physical activity and heavy lifting for at least six weeks to allow your body to properly heal.

Will Breast Implants Affect Future Mammogram Screenings?
Maintaining your long-term health requires regular mammogram screenings, and if you have breast implants, don’t worry – they shouldn’t affect your ability to be screened. Just make sure to let your mammogram technician know about your implants ahead of time so they can take the necessary precautions. Your technician may need to snap a few extra images from different angles to get a complete analysis of your breast tissue, but rest assured that the process is still quick and easy.
