Breast Augmentation

Small, underdeveloped breasts can make you feel less feminine, prevent you from wearing certain clothing, and impact your self-confidence.

Dr. Suzanne Yee provides personally tailored breast augmentation at her Little Rock, AR, office to help you achieve natural-looking results.

Breast augmentation can enhance several areas of your life...

Breast Implants Can Enhance, Balance & Reconstruct Your Figure

Increase Your Cup Size

Our Little Rock plastic surgery practice has virtually unlimited sizes and shapes of silicone and saline breast implants available. Alongside Dr. Yee, you can choose a volume and shape that meets your ideal goals.

Enhance Your Proportions

Breast augmentation can improve the symmetry between your breasts and balance your overall figure. Dr. Yee will use her highly artistic approach to choose a breast implant that flatters your figure and proportions.

Uplift Your Confidence

Small breasts can make you feel self-conscious in several areas of your life. Achieving the size and shape you've always wanted can help you love what you see when you look in the mirror.

Restore Breast Tissue

Some women undergo breast augmentation to replace tissue removed during a mastectomy or traumatic injury. For these women, breast implants can restore an incredible sense of wholeness once again.

Statistics Show Breast Implants Almost Always Meet Patient Expectations

Breast implants enhance various aspects of your bustline...

Breast Implants Can Dramatically Improve:

Size

Whether you have struggled with underdeveloped breasts since adolescence or lost breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, breast implants can help.

Shape

If your breasts do not have the round, smooth shape that you desire, implants can give you a more pleasing and feminine projection.

Symmetry

Many women are self-conscious because their breasts are different sizes. Implants are carefully selected to restore balance and symmetry between your breasts.

Concerned with Sagging? Be Aware...

Breast augmentation is not designed to address sagging breasts or excess skin resulting from pregnancy or massive weight loss. If sagging or overly elastic skin are among your concerns, Dr. Yee can combine breast implants with breast lift surgery to improve the projection of your breasts. Performed together, these breast surgeries can completely enhance and rejuvenate your bustline—all at once.

Seriously considering surgery? There are some requirements you should meet...

Ensuring the Safety & Success of Your Breast Augmentation

a1

Be in Good Health

Because preexisting conditions and infections can increase your risk of complications during surgery, you will need to be in good overall health. Breast implant removal may be recommended if complications do occur.

Finished Having Children

Because pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect your results, we recommend that you wait to undergo breast augmentation until you are done having children.

Maintain Realistic Expectations

Although breast augmentation can dramatically enhance your breasts, it does have limitations. Additionally, patients should never undergo surgery to please someone else or to achieve their idea of an ideal body.

You have many choices for your care, but Dr. Yee has unparalleled skills...

Certified "Keller Funnel" Physician

Keller Funnel

Dr. Yee is a KELLER FUNNEL® Certified Physician and uses the KELLER FUNNEL on many of her silicone breast augmentation cases. The KELLER FUNNEL is a cone-shaped, nylon device that allows your surgeon to use a no-touch delivery technique, which is believed to reduce infection-related complications.*

Traditional methods of inserting pre-filled breast implants involved pushing the implant through a small incision, which can cause damage to both the patient’s tissue and the implant’s shell. But with this advancement, Dr. Yee can insert the tip of the funnel into a smaller incision and guide the implant into place without strain and disturbance to the surrounding tissue. Other benefits of the KELLER FUNNEL include:

  • Minimized incision length
  • Decreased bruising and post-operative pain
  • Less force used during surgery
  • Decreased infection risk

What to Expect During Your Recovery

Dr. Yee wants all of her breast augmentation patients to experience the most comfortable recovery, and have as little downtime as possible.  The Rapid Recovery Method is a recently developed form of breast augmentation which gives breast augmentation patients the ability to return to normal activity within 24 hours of surgery. During breast augmentation procedures, the muscle is divided and stretched to create a pocket for the implant. The condition of the breast muscle after a breast augmentation is much like a sports injury to a leg muscle.  When a muscle is injured, torn, or stretched during sports, the most common path to recovery is physical therapy.

The Rapid Recovery Method consists of an advanced procedure technique, alternate pain management, and immediate physical therapy. At our Little Rock office, Dr. Yee has perfected a surgical technique that causes less trauma and inflammation to the breast muscle.  This method is so gentle that many patients find they do not need strong pain medications and can recover with only the use of non-narcotic analgesics. Since there is very little postoperative pain, the patient is able to practice specialized arm and chest exercises almost immediately after the procedure. The combination of brisk arm and chest movements stimulates repair of the damaged muscle and significantly decreases recovery time.

Dr. Yee will have you return to her Little Rock office a week after surgery for a follow-up visit, and then follow your care as needed over the course of the next 12 months. A post-surgical sports bra-like garment is usually recommended for several weeks.  We also recommend resting for the first few days following breast augmentation surgery.  Most women experience some mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness, which should subside in a short time. Much of the discomfort associated with breast surgery can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Yee.

Most patients return to work within a few days, and resume normal activity in two to three weeks.

Breast Augmentation with Saline Implants

before and after breast augmentation

A 23-year-old patient came to the office and expressed to Dr. Yee that she desired larger, fuller breasts. After the consultation, both she and Dr. Yee agreed the best course of action would be breast augmentation.

The results can be nothing short of life-changing...

Results & Aftercare

The final results of your breast augmentation may not be apparent until as much as a year after surgery. During this time, your implants will naturally settle lower on your breasts and begin to look more natural.

Your new breast size can give you a new lease on life, allowing you embark on professional, romantic, and personal endeavors with a newfound sense of self-confidence.

To protect your results as best as possible, we recommend wearing supportive bras and maintaining a stable weight. In general, breast implants need to be replaced every decade or so for the best possible look and feel.

But don't take our word for it...

Breast Enlargement Surgery Options

At our Little Rock, Arkansas office, breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. The procedure generally takes about one hour, in which Dr. Yee will place the implant through a small incision. Dr. Yee can help determine the best implant type and incision option during your consultation.  The two most common types of implants are saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with saline liquid and silicone implants are filled with a gel like substance.  Either of these implants comes in many sizes and profiles to fit different body types.  Another option that will be decided during the consultation is placement of the implant, over or under the muscle, and Dr. Yee will suggest which option will be best for you.
