What is Breast Augmentation?
Cosmetic breast surgery is a procedure that enlarges the breasts to result in a fuller appearance. It is generally known to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, providing women who are unhappy with their breast shape many opportunities for improvement. With the help of implants or fat from the patient's body, this cosmetic treatment improves breast shape, size, and symmetry and produces an attractive and balanced outcome. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Chet Mays, is skilled in executing this surgery and performs hundreds of breast augmentations every year. During your consultation at Mays Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, our plastic surgery team will listen to your concerns and desires and inform you of all of the options available while also customizing a surgical plan to exceed your goals.

Am I A Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?
The choice to undergo breast augmentation surgery is a personal one. If you are considering this procedure, you must do it for yourself. You should be healthy and at a normal weight with breasts that are developed, and be the proper age to have implants. If you are dissatisfied with the overall appearance of your breasts, you may benefit from this surgery. In addition, if your breasts have been affected by weight loss or pregnancy, this surgery can give them a new look with increased volume. It is a possible answer as well if you work out with weights or have an overall lack of natural breast mass.
How is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Incision placement, as well as implant location, are aspects that will need to be made prior to surgery. During the procedure, an incision is created, and then the implant will be placed into its position. There are several methods that may be chosen for implant placement. The submuscular placement (under the pec muscle) is the most common. Another common location is above the muscle but behind the breast tissue called subglandular. The subfascial augmentation allows implant placement above the muscle but under a thin layer of the pectoral fascia behind the breast tissue. A unique procedure that can be added to any augmentation is the use of an "internal bra". This technique involves the insertion of a temporary scaffolding that supports the breast and will slowly breakdown over the ensueing months. With the expertise of Dr. Mays, where the implant is inserted is based on numerous factors, including the size and type of implant and the thickness of the breast tissue. Regardless of the incision, scarring is generally unnoticeable. Placement and location are based on your body type, implant size, and lifestyle.
What to Expect After Breast Augmentation
Cosmetic breast surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery using general anesthesia. Once the incision is made, the appropriate implant will be moved through the incision and deposited into a surgically created pocket, and then secured into its correct position. Following the placement of the implant, the incision is carefully secured with sutures or surgical adhesives. Each patient will be taken to a private recovery space and observed and monitored prior to being released. You will be instructed to continue wearing a medical sports bra to assist with swelling. Several days after surgery, the swelling will begin to slowly go away, and the breasts will begin to feel normal as they fall into their new position. Patients can resume normal activities within several days; however, exercise should be avoided for approximately a couple of months. Cosmetic breast surgery creates gorgeous outcomes that feel and appear normal. This treatment in most cases can be life changing for many individuals, offering them the chance to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Breast Augmentation Reviews
I'm loving my results!! Run, don't walk to see Dr Mays. I waited for years before making my decision for breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Now I wish I had pulled the trigger a long time ago. Dr Mays makes you feel so at ease and comfortable from the initial visit. You won't regret it!
I had breast augmentation in October and I am so pleased and thankful for my results. They look amazing my scars are barely there I had no trouble healing! Staff is amazing very thorough and welcoming! I recommend him to anyone! Thanks Dr. Mays!
I am honestly blown away with the care I have received from Chet Mays and his team. They are all over the top caring, understanding and make it clear that they hold no judgement. I had breast augmentation and a tummy tuck performed by Chet Mays. From consult to Post-operation I received top of the line care and results that are like a dream. It's hard to believe that this body is mine after 3 pregnancies, the last which was twins I thought I'd have to live in that skin forever. I have not had a single negative experience.
Recovery was easy and the scarring is very minimal - Dr. Mays and his stanmff are great. I recently had a breast augmentation/revision and a lip lift procedure done. I am about 4 weeks post op and overall I am really pleased with my results. Upon my consultation, I let Dr. Mays know what I disliked about my first BA performed by a different surgeon. I showed him a picutre of what I'd like my revision to look like and he was able to make a recommendation on how to get me the look I desired. My revision has given me the results I wanted. The lip lift procedure also turned out great. Recovery was easy and the scarring, which I was mildly concerned about, is VERY minimal. I am glad that I made the decision to trust Dr. Mays and his staff with my procedures.
Happy with the results - recovery was easier than I imagined - I had breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Mays and I am so happy with my results. I’m confident he truly is the best plastic surgeon in Louisville. What really stood out to me during my consultations was how he listened to what I wanted and gave suggestions on how to get there. I felt empowered and understood throughout the entire process. Surgery day was a breeze and recovery was easier than I could have imagined with clear and easy to follow instructions. I always have felt taken care of whenever I’m in the office. I look forward to using Dr. Mays and his team for any additional cosmetic procedures!

Breast Augmentation FAQs
How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your total cost for breast augmentation surgery will vary depending on your choices and whether you are getting any other surgeries at the same time. When your treatment plan is made, Dr. Mays will go over estimated costs as well as financing options. To make sure your results match your goals and last a long time, it is better to focus on quality over low costs.
Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your plan might include breast augmentation, a lift, or both. A breast lift removes loose skin and raises the breasts, while implants address the shape and size. During your consultation with Dr. Mays, he will listen to your needs and goals before discussing your treatment options. A combination of augmentation and lift is often part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after augmentation surgery, be sure to tell Dr. Mays during your consultation. It's usually possible to breastfeed after implants with the right placement and technique. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, so it is better to wait until after you are finished having children to have breast augmentation.
