Breast Implants and Augmentation


Feeling comfortable and content in one’s skin can go a long way towards boosting confidence, improving self-esteem, and enjoying an overall better quality of life.

This is one of the many reasons so many women in the Tri-Cities, TN area decide to undergo breast augmentation or enlargement surgeries each and every year. A properly performed implant or augmentation can help women feel like their bodies reflect the confidence and beauty they hold within.

There are many reasons one may opt for breast augmentation, whether it’s to add lift, adjust the shape of the breasts, increase the size, fix uneven or asymmetric breasts, or to replace breast tissue lost due to a medical condition such as breast cancer.

When done with care, breast augmentation is a relatively safe procedure with a generally short recovery time. Meaning you’ll be back on your feet and ready to take on the world in no time!

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as breast implants or mammoplasty, is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the United States. Breast augmentation is often performed by using a breast implant that is filled with either a saline solution or silicone gel in order to alter the size, shape, and overall perkiness of the breasts.

Why you might need/want a breast augmentation?

Choosing to undergo a breast augmentation procedure is a deeply personal decision and no two cases are alike, however, the most common reasons women report seeking them include the following:

  • To improve the shape of breasts
  • To correct asymmetrical or uneven breasts
  • To increase breast size
  • To correct micromastia (a condition where the breasts never fully form)
  • To boost confidence and self-esteem
  • To allow your body to reflect your true identity
  • To reconstruct breast tissue lost due to breast cancer or other medical procedures

Whatever your reasons, Dr. Brantner is always happy to discuss your options and provide you with a confidential consultation.

Benefits of a Breast Augmentation for Tri-Cities, TN Residents

When performed by a trusted and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Jim Brantner M.D., breast augmentation is a safe and relatively pain-free procedure with an abundance of benefits.

Studies have shown that breast implants or breast augmentation surgery can help boost confidence, self-esteem, body image, and sexual satisfaction. Breast augmentation can also give you a more youthful appearance and open up a whole new world of style and fashion choices for you.

What to expect when you go in for your breast augmentation procedure?

The Procedure

Once you’ve discussed your options with Dr. Brantner and decided on the perfect size and shape for your new breasts, you’ll be ready to go in for your procedure.

During treatment, you will undergo anesthesia from one of our board-certified anesthesiologists. We recommend general anesthesia which will allow you to sleep comfortably through the procedure, minimizing stress. For the surgery itself, two incisions will be made according to the plans you discussed with Dr. Brantner and the implants will be placed and adjusted until the shape and fit are perfect.

The Procedure

After waking from your surgery. your breasts will be a bit tender and swollen, but you will be able to see the results of the shape and size immediately. You will be given the option of prescription pain relievers to help you through the recovery process if required and will be allowed to leave the clinic after a bit of rest. You will be fitted with an elastic bra to wear during recovery which will help hold your breasts in place to assure they heal correctly.

Light activities can be resumed in a day or two, and most patients find they are able to get back to work in 4 to 5 days. We suggest refraining from strenuous activity such as aerobic exercise for up to 3 weeks.

If you have any questions throughout the recovery process, our doors are always open. You can call us at any time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. We strive to make sure procedures are as easy and comfortable as possible.


Though you will see the results of your new breast size and shape immediately, it can take up to 6 months for any scars or bruising to fully heal. After 6 months, you will likely not be able to see any signs of the initial surgery any longer, leaving you with perfectly shaped breasts in your ideal size.
