Breast Augmentation Davenport, IA
Diamond Medical in Davenport provides full-service Breast Augmentation and Breast Reduction procedures for our clients. Dr. Yates personally performs each procedure – tailored to the individual needs of our Davenport clients.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast Augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. and one of our most popular services. Breast augmentation can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
Breast implants are silicone shells filled with saline (salt water) and are placed behind each breast, underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle. The procedure lasts one to two hours and is typically performed with general anesthesia, although local anesthesia combined with a sedative is also possible. After breast augmentation surgery the patient’s bustline may be increased by one or more cup sizes.
Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Leave Scars?
Incisions are made in inconspicuous places on the breast to minimize scar visibility (in the armpit, in the crease on the underside of the breast, or around the areola, the dark skin around the nipple). Dr. Yates’ preference is the endoscopic transaxillary approach – the advantage is significantly less post op pain, usually only a 24 hour recovery, and smaller hidden scars in each arm pit. Dr. Yates prefers this method because he wants his patients to look and feel as though they were born that way, enhanced without visible scars. Dr. Yates also offers “Natural Breast Enhancement” using fat transferred from other areas of the body to the breasts. Newer, gentle techniques allow about a 98% permanent fat graft survival rate when combined with Adipose Derived Regenerative Cells (ADRC’s) or Selphyl.
Why Breast Augmentation?
Here at Diamond Medical – our patients elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons, including balancing breast size, compensating for reduced breast mass after pregnancy or surgery, and correcting a congenital breast defect. Under the expert care of Dr. Yates, patients can enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts that are one or more cup sizes larger after the operation.
We know that every woman is unique in both her desires and her body shape. With that in mind, we take the time during the pre-operative consultations to learn what each patient hopes to gain from breast augmentation surgery and to decide which implant type and implant placement is best. In this way, every one of our patients enjoys completely customized treatment designed with her specific goals in mind.View Our Breast Augmentation Photo Gallery
Breast Reduction – Lot’s Of Davenport Women Already Know…
That Dr. Yates performs breast reduction and reshaping using Nutational Infrasonic Liposuction (NIL) or “Tickle Lipo” combined with radio frequency to avoid disfiguring scars “Anchor” or “Lollipop” incisions from a traditional reduction mastopexy. Traditionally breast reduction is associated with a complicated, lengthy, risky surgery involving large cuts and scars on the breasts that may not heal as desired. Those patients who qualify for the scar free breast reduction procedure to reduce the excessive breast size and to alleviate the suffering caused from the weight of these large breasts, report great satisfaction with the results of this treatment.
Each person’s breast shape and build is unique and needs to be examined on an individual basis to discuss and determine which surgical technique is most appropriate to achieve your desired surgical results. During the consultation with Dr. Yates, the degree of ptosis (sagging) of your breasts will be determined to assess which type of breast reduction surgery will be most appropriate.
