Why Undergo Breast Augmentation in Lexington, KY
The choice to undergo breast augmentation is a personal one, and can be made for a variety of different reasons, all with terrific results.
- Breast Enlargement: This can be simply a desire for larger breasts, which can enhance self-esteem. This can also bring a more pleasing proportion to the body and reduce the need for products like padded bras and shape wear.
- Post Pregnancy Contouring: Some patients wish to improve the contour of their breasts due to the shape and firmness that has been lost following pregnancy & breastfeeding. post-Pregnancy weight loss will also affect breast contour.
- Breast Reshaping: Patients may want to even out the size and shape of their breasts when they are not symmetrical due to a genetic imbalance.
The important thing to know is that when done by an experienced and properly educated, board certified plastic surgery professional the procedure is an effective and very safe method of reaching your cosmetic goals.

The Procedure and Options
Breast augmentations, as performed by Dr. Wells:
- Surgery: Breast augmentations are outpatient procedures – performed in a hospital setting – that typically take about an hour and a half, under general anesthetic.
- Implants and Incisions: Wells uses both saline and gel implants, which are usually placed under the chest muscles using an areolar incision at the bottom of the areola (which leaves less visible scarring). It may be infra-mammary incision which is in the fold under the breast. This is the most requested incision by our patients. By far more women choose gel implants which are very safe and typically the best option.
- Size Matters: The majority of patients prefer a full or large C cup when getting a breast augmentation. However cup size is trending smaller due to more active and athletic lifestyles. We are seeing more women choosing a full B cup instead.
- Follow-up: Most of our patients are seen for a follow-up the next day, with another follow-up the following week. Additional follow-ups are scheduled at 3 and 6 months.
- Resuming Activity: Most patients can return to work in about a week. They can begin participating in sports and intense exercise in about four weeks.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
- Improvement in Aesthetics: Breast augmentation can make drastic improvements to the overall appearance of a woman’s figure and bearing, entirely unrelated to the appearance of the breasts themselves. While all cosmetic judgments are a matter of personal taste and a reflection of what society thinks is ‘beautiful’, some women simply feel that with smaller breasts, their bodies are disproportionate and lack contour. Breast implants can provide a solution.*
- Increased Self-Esteem: Many women have considered breast implants for more than half of their lives as a result of low self esteem or feeling insecure around other women or men. Breast augmentation can change all of this and give that feeling of confidence and an ability to tackle new and exciting challenges.*
- More Clothing Options: This may seem obvious but breast augmentation can reduce the feeling that it is necessary to only buy clothing that you can hide behind. You will look better in your clothes and a wider variety of flattering clothing options will open up to you. Swimwear, instead of being a dreaded topic, becomes something to look forward to.*

"Before Voluma everyone was always asking me if I was sick or sad – and that’s enough to make you sad. After Voluma I get “Hello” and “How are you”, no more sick and sad, just a lot of smiles. I never smiled before Voluma, now I can’t stop smiling."—Cynthia
