Breast Augmentation in Riverside: Trust Only Ben Childers, MD

Could breast augmentation surgery be right for you? Ben Childers, MD of Riverside Plastic Surgery Associates can help you determine your candidacy for this very popular and gratifying procedure. Having helped thousands of patients attain the breast size and shape they desire, he is the best and most highly qualified person to provide vital and relevant information to anyone looking to get breast augmentation in Riverside, CA. Here are some of the questions each prospective patient should reflect on:

Why do I want this procedure? The best reason to get your breast augmented is because it will make you happy and it is exactly what you want. Do not undergo breast augmentation surgery if you simply want to please other people.

Are my expectations realistic? Ideally, your goal should be to enhance the breasts to a specific size that is proportional to the rest of your body.

Am I prepared for surgery? Most women require at least a few days off work. It is highly recommended to have someone stay with you as you recuperate after the procedure, at least for the first 24 hours. Thankfully, there are many options available to patients in and around the Riverside and Ontario areas

Can I afford this procedure? $3,918 is the national average breast augmentation surgery cost using silicone implants, and $3,585 for saline implants. Typically, the cost of breast augmentation in Southern California is significantly higher than the average; however Dr. Childers offers some of the most competitive pricing for the procedure and provides patients with a very flexible financing option, most especially for Riverside, and all Inland Empire residents.

Other Complementing Procedures

Breast augmentation is often the only procedure needed to achieve the fuller, more sensuous breasts a patient hopes for. However, some women opt to complement the surgery with an additional cosmetic procedure such as breast lift surgery (which does not utilize implants, but "lifts" the bustline to a more youthful position). If you are interested in this option, be sure to mention it during your breast enhancement consultation with Riverside's Dr. Childers.

Types of Breast Implants

Now more than ever, patients have several breast implant options available to them. Riverside breast augmentation specialist Dr. Childers offers two types: 1.) saline implants, which are filled with sterile saltwater, and 2.) "traditional" silicone gel implants for a more "natural" look and feel that are equally safe, particularly after their re-tooling and FDA approval in 2006. Silicone gel breast implants often cost more than saline implants, but many patients prefer their more cohesive texture. In the United States, there are three implant companies, Mentor, Natrelle, and Sientra. Dr. Childers offers the full selection from each company. Whatever is the case, you can be assured that Dr. Childers will only offer and use the highest quality breast implants available in Riverside County regardless of what type you choose.

What to Expect From Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that is performed in an approximately two hour time frame. After administering general anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision in either the underside of the breast, the underarm area or around the areola. All incisions are discreet locations that prevent any visible scars from being seen by others. He then inserts the breast implants and closes the incision with dissolvable sutures.

For the first 24 hours after surgery, patients should be on bed rest, sitting up as often as possible. Typically, patients are advised to sleep sitting up; however, our clinical staff can provide strategies that make this as comfortable as possible. In the weeks to come, the breasts will "drop" into their permanent position, and the final results will become more apparent. Patients tend to feel more comfortable with each passing day.
