Breast Augmentation and Liposuction
Cincinnati Plastic Surgery Articles

Robert P. Hummel, M.D.

Breast Augmentation

For many women who are unsatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts, breast augmentation is a great solution. FDA approved Saline (salt water) or silicone gel implants can be used to create fuller breasts and restore volume that may have been lost due to pregnancy or weight loss. Breast augmentation can boost self confidence and provide a more proportionate figure. Many women find that they are able to wear certain fashions more comfortably and feel more confident in them. Another added benefit of breast augmentation is improved self- esteem, especially for those who have been self-conscious of their breast size.

Breast Augmentation is done as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Recovery time is about one week. Most women can resume normal activity or return to work within a few days. The implants are typically placed under the pectoral muscle, through small incisions in either the axilla (armpit), around the areola or below the breast in the inframammary crease. Results can be seen immediately, and will continue improving as swelling dissipates and incisions heal. An ideal candidate for Breast Augmentation is someone with small, underdeveloped breasts, women who have lost volume due to pregnancy, or if the breasts are poorly developed and are poorly shaped. Call today for a complimentary consultation with one of our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons to see if Breast Enhancement may be right for you!


If you are bothered by areas of fat that just won't seem to go away through good exercise or diet, liposuction may be the solution. Liposuction can slim and reshape areas of the body including the neck, thighs, hips, abdomen, back, and legs. Often, these areas of fat are hereditary and can be very difficult to get rid of. With Liposuction, the excess fat is permanently removed, revealing a more contoured look and a refined body shape.

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure and is performed under local or general anesthesia. Through a small incision, fat is suctioned out by use of a cannula (a thin tube). Recovery time is about one week. Following surgery, the patient will wear a compression garment for several weeks to help with swelling. The results of liposuction will continue to improve over several months as swelling subsides. Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity, or a substitute for diet and exercise. The ideal candidate for liposuction is a healthy individual who is close to their ideal stable body weight, but who has areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Schedule a complimentary consultation with our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons today, and see how liposuction could help reveal a slimmer, more confident you!
