Breast Augmentation in Chicago, IL and Highland Park, IL

We can use silicone or saline implants to augment the size of your breasts. Breast augmentation can also be used to even out a size difference between your breasts or to reconstruct a breast that has been removed due to mastectomy or other causes. Some of the most common reasons that women seek breast augmentation surgery include:

  • Correcting asymmetrical breasts
  • Improving breast volume following pregnancy and/or breastfeeding
  • Enhancing size and shape to improve self-confidence
  • Correcting congenital irregularities and defects
  • Revision of previous implant surgery

Breast augmentation surgery can be performed in several different ways. At your consultation, Dr. Wiesman will discuss the options that are available, and together, you will determine the best method to achieve the desired result while minimizing scar visibility. The incisions may be made either around the areola, in the armpit, or in the crease beneath the breast. The implant is then inserted either behind or in front of your chest muscle. Dr. Wiesman positions the implant for the most natural-looking enhancement. We aren’t satisfied until you love your new, shapely bust, and we’ll work with you every step of the way to ensure optimal results.

The breasts are an obvious aspect of femininity and beauty, but not everyone is endowed with the firm, full, and voluptuous breasts that so many women desire. Fortunately, modern cosmetic surgery makes it possible for virtually any woman to enjoy the benefits of a full, youthful, natural-looking bust with breast implants. At the Wiesman Cosmetic Surgery & Wellness Institute, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Irvin Wiesman offers a comprehensive range of cosmetic breast augmentation procedures, including enhancement with breast implants.

What is a Breast Implant?

A breast implant is a prosthesis that consists of a fluid or gel-like solution formulated to simulate the look and feel of natural breast tissue. It is used primarily to alter and enhance the shape, texture, and size of a woman’s breast. Implants are placed either above or below the muscle in the chest, depending on the type of implant used, your body type, and the desired result. In order to place the implants, incisions may be made under your natural breast, around the areola, or in the armpit. Dr. Wiesman will talk with you about your individual desires, expectations, concerns and body type in order to formulate a treatment plan that best fulfills your unique needs.

Why Choose Breast Implants?

Women make the decision to pursue breast enhancement for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common reasons that women request a breast implant consultation with Dr. Wiesman include:

  • Restoring the volume in breasts that have begun to sag due to the natural aging process
  • Improving the look and feel of deflated breasts following pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Increasing the size of breasts that are too small or disproportionate to the rest of the body
  • Creating a new bust following unilateral or bilateral mastectomy
  • Complementing a breast lift procedure
  • Correcting congenital defects
  • Correcting acquired deformities post mastectomy or lumpectomy after breast cancer
  • Revision of previously augmented breasts
  • Improving the size, shape, and position of breasts to achieve a more feminine, attractive silhouette

While many women aspire to a figure complemented by an ample bust, many others find that their breasts are simply too large in proportion to the rest of their frame. These women may experience back and neck pain due to the weight of their breasts, and it may often prove difficult to find clothing that fits properly. At the Wiesman Cosmetic Surgery and Wellness Institute in Chicago, IL and Highland Park, IL, Dr. Irvin Wiesman offers an all-encompassing selection of cosmetic surgery services; each of these, including breast reduction, is designed with your goals and needs in mind.

Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery

Excessively large breasts can negatively affect your life in a number of significant ways. Women with copious amounts of breast tissue frequently experience a wide range of complications, including:

  • Backaches and neck pain associated with the weight of their breasts
  • Uncomfortable indentations on the shoulders from bra straps
  • Inability to wear many types of fashionable clothing, including certain styles of dresses, tops, and bathing suits
  • Hindered ability to engage in certain physical activities comfortably, including many sports and exercises
  • Skin problems underneath the breasts, including chafing of the skin and irritation
  • Feelings of self-consciousness or embarrassment

Anatomical reasons that women choose to pursue breast reduction surgery include heavy, pendulous breasts or a noticeable difference in size. These problems can also be alleviated with breast reduction surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

As is the case with any plastic surgery procedure, we want to ensure that you are well-informed regarding your options and our services before making a final decision regarding breast reduction. These are some of the most commonly asked questions associated with breast reduction surgery.

1. Does my insurance cover breast reduction? In many cases, breast reduction is performed specifically to spare the patient pain and physical harm. If it is determined that a breast reduction procedure is medically necessary to offer relief from chronic pain and other health issues, your insurance plan may cover the surgery. Ask Dr. Wiesman about how insurance applies to breast reduction at your consultation.

2. How long will it take me to recover? Every patient is different, and healing time does vary depending on a number of factors. Most women, however, return to normal daily activities within one to two weeks following surgery. Heavy lifting and other strenuous activities should typically be avoided for up to four weeks.

3. Will I have scars after breast reduction? Any surgical procedure will result in some amount of scarring; however, Dr. Wiesman specializes in vertical breast reduction, a technique that minimizes the formation of scar tissue and healing time. Any visible scars are generally located in areas that are easily covered by a bra or swimsuit.

Our experienced, caring team is always here to answer your questions and to alleviate your concerns, so please do not hesitate to call us today to learn more. You can reach our Chicago office at (312) 981-1290 or our Highland Park location at (847) 266-0684.

Breast Surgery Procedures

All of the breast surgery procedures performed at the Wiesman Institute are done in the convenience and comfort of our in-office surgical suite. The Joint Commission, which sets the standard for guaranteeing quality healthcare, has accredited our surgical facilities.

There are three principal areas of breast surgery: breast augmentation, breast implants and breast reduction. The breast surgeon Chicago trusts more often is well-experienced in each of these procedures.

Breast Augmentation

There are many reasons why a woman might want breast augmentation surgery - to balance her figure, to enjoy the benefits of larger and uplifted breasts, or to boost her self-confidence. No matter what your reason is, Drs. Wiesman can give you the reflection you’d like to see in the mirror. Our doctors are certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, so they have the credentials necessary to help you achieve the flattering results you desire from breast augmentation surgery.
Women augment their breasts for a variety of reasons:

  • To balance the size of uneven breasts
  • To create better whole body proportion
  • To restore volume to their breasts after pregnancy and breast-feeding
  • To raise their level of self-esteem and self-confidence
  • To correct previous breast surgery
  • To enhance their sexual appeal
  • To fix a congenital defect
  • To build a new bust after mastectomy or lumpectomy

Breast Implants

To enhance the size of your breasts, we use either silicone or saline implants. These breast implants can be used for women who require reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy, for women whose breasts are not the same size, or for women who seek to increase the size of their breasts for cosmetic purposes.

Whether filled with saline or silicone, implants are designed to look and feel like natural breasts. Depending on the results you want to achieve and your current body type, you and one of our doctors will decide which surgery method is most appropriate; implants can be placed either behind or on top of chest muscle. The incision for surgery will either be in the crease below the breast, around the areola or in the underarm area.

Breast Reduction

Mention breast surgery and most people only think of enlarging breasts. In truth, however, there are many women who seek to reduce the size of their breasts. A woman might have large breasts that are not in proportion to the rest of her body. In this case, the consequences may be neck and back pain because of the weight of their breasts, difficulty finding well-fitting clothes and, of course, extreme self-consciousness or embarrassment. For these women, the Wiesman Institute offers breast reduction surgery. We specialize in vertical breast reduction, which reduces healing time—most women return to their normal activities with a week or two after surgery—and hides surgical scars in places that are concealed behind a bra or swimsuit.

If your breast reduction surgery is medically necessary to eliminate pain, then your health insurance may cover the procedure.  You can speak to one of our doctors about insurance coverage at your consultation.
