Milwaukee Breast Augmentation Surgeon – Dr. Loewenstein

Have you dreamed of having a more curvaceous, feminine figure? If so, consider breast augmentation, also called breast enlargement surgery. Available in our Milwaukee, Wisconsin, office, breast augmentation is designed to enlarge the breasts, using implants, so that they look fuller, shapelier, proportionate, and more attractive. Breast augmentation can also boost your confidence and make you feel more secure about your appearance.

The availability of FDA approved silicone gel implants gives another option to women seeking breast enhancement surgery. Dr. Loewenstein participated in the post-market approval silicone implant study and is proud to have helped advance scientific knowledge regarding these medical devices.

Best Breast Augmentation SurgeonDr. Loewenstein, a leading Milwaukee breast augmentation surgeon, will begin your procedure with an incision under the breast, around the nipple, or under the arm; the placement of the incision will depend on which method you and Dr. Loewenstein decide is best for you. Next, he will insert either a saline or silicone implant through the incision and either under the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscle. Next, he will stitch the incision closed. The entire procedure takes about one to two hours to complete and is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Most patients experience swelling, bruising, soreness, temporary decreased nipple sensation, and general discomfort as they recover, but most side effects disappear in time (usually within three to six weeks).

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?

Women who were born with small breasts, who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy, breast feeding or weight loss, or who want to equalize significant asymmetry are good candidates for breast augmentation. If excess sagging exists, a lift may also be necessary to achieve the desired result.

Other factors include:

Dr. Loewenstein will discuss your goals during your consultation and advise you how to achieve them.

What are the current implant options?

How is the operation performed?

Dr. Loewenstein performs the operation at a fully accredited surgery center or in a hospital outpatient facility. The incision may be made in the crease under the breast, around the areola or in the armpit.  The implants may be placed underneath the pectoral muscle or on top of the muscle under the breast tissue.

The operation is usually performed under general anesthesia to ensure maximum comfort for the patient. The operation itself generally takes 75-90 minutes. The patient is then taken to the recovery room and from there to another area for observation prior to being allowed to go home. If additional procedures are performed, such as tummy tuck, arrangements can be made in advance for the patient to spend the night in the hospital. This ensures optimal management of pain and monitoring of physiologic parameters.

What are the potential side effects of breast augmentation?

It is important for patients to realize that while breast implants are intended to last a lifetime, replacement may become necessary due to a leak or the build-up of scar tissue around the implant, also known as capsular contracture. Currently the implant manufacturers will provide a new implant free of charge if there is a leak.

If infection occurs around the implant early after surgery, the implant may have to be removed.  Fortunately, Dr. Loewenstein has never had to do this for one of his cosmetic breast augmentations.

Hematoma, or bleeding into the space around the implant, is the most common early postoperative complication. Thus Dr. Loewenstein emphasizes avoiding medications prior to surgery that interfere with the body’s ability to form a clot. These include both prescription and non-prescription medications. Some examples include: aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, vitamin E and Omega 3 fish oil. Dr. Loewenstein will review all your medications with you during your consultation.

How do I decide what is the “right” size for me?

Plastic surgery is partially science and partially art. Dr. Loewenstein feels that choosing the correct implant is the most important decision that the patient will have to make. He uses several different methods to assist the patient in making this important decision. This could include: the use of specially designed “sizers” during the office consultation, reviewing clinical photographs of past breast augmentation patients, and possible use of clinical websites which have photo galleries that integrate the patient’s height and weight, bra size before and after surgery, and type and volume of implant used. Dr. Loewenstein encourages a second visit to the office prior to surgery to finalize the plan.

Breast enlargement surgery, while in demand among Milwaukee, Wisconsin, patients, is not for everyone. To find out if you are a candidate, please contact Dr. Loewenstein today and schedule a consultation.
