Breast Enhancement in Greensboro, NC
Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, P.A. offers breast enhancement to the residents of Greensboro, Burlington, and surrounding North Carolina communities desiring cosmetic surgery.
What Is Breast Enhancement?
The goal of breast enhancement is to improve the size, shape, and appearance of the breasts. Because a woman’s body is primarily determined by genetic influences, she may not be able to achieve the look she desires through diet and exercise alone. Today, surgical techniques such as those performed in Greensboro, North Carolina by Dr. Coley allow a woman to alter the size and shape of her breasts through a breast augmentation, breast reduction, or breast lift. Dr. Coley’s office in Greensboro also offers male breast reduction surgery to treat gynecomastia.

Breast Enhancement Procedures Available at Dr. Coley’s Greensboro Office:
Before Breast Enhancement Surgery
An important part of the preoperative consultation with Dr. Coley includes a discussion of the desired breast size and shape and the proposed incisions. This consultation takes place in his office in Greensboro, North Carolina. Although many different breast contours can be achieved, a decision must be made that coincides with total body size and shape and the existing breast tissue before selecting a breast procedure. For breast augmentation, there are a variety of implant designs. Dr. Coley discusses the choice of breast implants, reasons for the selection, and size changes that are possible.
During the consultation, Dr. Coley reviews the patient’s medical history, performs a focused physical examination, and thoroughly discusses the selected breast procedure, risks, and benefits for each individual patient.

During Breast Enhancement
Breast enhancement is carried out under general anesthesia and is performed as an outpatient procedure in Dr. Coley’s office in Greensboro, North Carolina. Prior to surgery, medication is given to relax the patient and breasts are carefully marked to indicate where incisions are to be made. Every effort is made to reduce the size of scars and to make them as inconspicuous as possible. The patient emerges from breast enhancement wearing a support bra and incisional dressings.
Understanding the Recovery from Breast Enhancement
Discomfort following breast enhancement is generally minimal to moderate and is controlled with oral medications. Stitches are removed five to seven days after the surgery at Dr. Coley’s office in Greensboro. Most patients will wear a support bra for several weeks and must limit activities that interfere with the healing process. Strenuous exercise must be avoided for several weeks.
Swelling and minor bruising may occur but usually subside in a few weeks. Incisional tenderness is common for a short period of time during the healing. Scars from the incisions, although permanent, are made as inconspicuous as possible and fade significantly with time.
Remember that healing is a gradual process and it may be several weeks before patients begin to see the final results of the breast enhancement procedure. After healing, however, most patients are very pleased with the results of breast enhancement.
