Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic procedures. It has the ability to dramatically alter a woman’s appearance and self-image. Women seek breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. Some are self-conscious wearing certain clothing, such as swimsuits or form-fitting tops. Others seek augmentation to become more proportional to the rest of their bodies. Some have asymmetry between the two breasts. For others, the effects of pregnancy and breast-feeding have altered breast size. Some patients simply want to be fuller on top.

Whatever your reasons, Dr. Mitchell can help you decide if a breast augmentation is right for you. Dr. Mitchell will meet with you for a free, private consultation. Multiple factors will be considered to determine what is best for you. This includes what type of implant you prefer (i.e., silicone or saline), where the implant should be placed (i.e., above or below the pectoralis muscle), and what incision should be used to place the implant (i.e., around the areola, within the axilla, or below the breast in the inframammary crease). Each patient is unique, and Dr. Mitchell will help you decide what is appropriate for you.

A breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure. All sutures are placed internally to avoid the need for painful suture removal. Dr. Mitchell will see you one to two days after the procedure in his office. Some mild bruising and swelling may occur, however, and this usually resolves in a few weeks. Recovery is excellent, with most women returning to their normal activities in a week or two.

Implant Choices

Dr. Mitchell is proud to offer both saline and FDA-approved silicone implants. Dr. Mitchell is certified by both the Mentor and Allergan companies, the two makers of breast implants within the United States.

In September 2008 I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time in my life. Because of treatment I had received 23 years prior, I chose to undergo a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I did some research and visited a couple of surgeons in Lincoln; I actually made an appointment for surgery with one of them. I was also referred to Dr. Cassidy Mitchell. After speaking to him on the phone and meeting with him, I chose to change doctors and have Dr. Mitchell help me with this challenge. Dr. Mitchell was new to Lincoln then, but I felt very confident about how he was approaching my surgery and about his compassion towards me as a woman and patient facing a very difficult surgery. I have never regretted that decision. I am very happy with the results, but most of all, Dr. Mitchell approached the choices, surgery, recovery and reconstruction in a way that made me feel comforted, confident and as though I was in charge. That was important to me at a time when women often feel like their lives have gone completely out of control. I highly recommend him as a surgeon. His work is impeccable. I also have to say my general surgeon, Dr. Carolyn Cody, and the nursing staff at Bryan West Campus was also incredibly supportive. What a team. I am blessed. I’m cancer free, making music with my husband, and moving on with life. Thanks to all of you at Bryan. Thanks, Dr. Mitchell for helping me, for sharing your talent, and treating me with kindness. I’ll never forget it.
