Breast enhancement is a sensitive and highly personal subject, and Dr. Holley wants to make sure you make wise choices that benefit your look and your sense of self for years to come. He will spend time with you in your initial consultation and follow-up meetings to answer your questions, clarify the benefits of different implant options, and help you develop a breast enhancement solution that reflects your needs. Most of all, he will take the time to listen.

Dr. Holley is skilled in a full set of breast enhancement techniques, so, as part of your consultation, he will be sure to assess your shape and goals before he explains your options and recommends an approach for you. Your choice of surgical approach will depend partly on your physiology and on the type of breast implants you choose, as well as patient preference.
Dr. Holley will place the implant in one of two basic positions:
Above the muscle (subglandular) placement: This breast augmentation approach is generally appropriate for Michigan women who have a larger amount of existing breast tissue and want to create a more defined cleavage line. Typically, recovery from this approach is also slightly faster. Dr. Holley places the implant behind the breast glands but above the chest muscles.
Below the muscle (submuscular) placement: This approach is highly effective for women who have very little existing breast tissue or who want to achieve a softer, gentler curve from the upper chest to the breast mound. Dr. Holley places the implant behind the breast glands and partially behind the pectoralis muscles of the chest, creating a contour that looks and feels very natural.
Here at West Michigan Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes between one and two hours. Depending on the surgical approach you and your surgeon choose, any scarring will be hidden either in the armpit, within the “inframammary” fold under the breast, or at the edge of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).
Dr. Holley and our attentive, caring staff will make sure you know what to expect before the day of your surgery, and afterward he will be available to address any concerns. He will also plan a follow-up session to verify that you are healing comfortably.
Patients generally can return to light activities within three or four days and ease into more intensive activities within two weeks. Strenuous exercises should be avoided until about the third week, though you may need to wait longer depending on such unique factors as your healing speed, fitness level, and whether or not you underwent any combination procedures.
