A breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) involves increasing the size of the breasts or restoring volume after weight loss or pregnancy. During a breast augmentation procedure at The Oaks at Goodwood Medical Spa in Baton Rouge, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Thomas Guillot increases the breast size with breast implants.
Dr. Guillot also performs breast augmentations in Baton Rouge to reconstruct breasts for those who have had a mastectomy or sustained injuries to their breasts.
Because a breast augmentation is a personal procedure, you should only have a breast augmentation if it is something you want to do. A breast augmentation should never be performed to please someone else.

At your initial consultation with Dr. Guillot at The Oaks at Goodwood Medical Spa, you will be able to talk with him about what you would like to achieve with a breast augmentation in Baton Rouge. At this time, Dr. Guillot will help you decide which breast augmentation implants will give you the results you desire.
A saline breast implant is filled with sterile salt water. A saline breast implant provides a consistent shape, firmness and feel. Saline breast implants are approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) to use in breast augmentation procedures for individuals who are aged 18 or older.
Silicone implants were approved by the FDA in 2006 for use in breast augmentation procedures for individuals who are aged 22 or older. A silicone breast implant is filled with gel. This silicone gel resembles natural breast tissue more so than the aforementioned saline does. Individuals who choose to have silicone breast implants placed during their breast augmentation procedure in Baton Rouge may need to visit Dr. Guillot on occasion to ensure they are functioning properly.
These implants also contain silicone gel, however, it is much thicker than the gel used in the traditional silicone implants. Gummy bear implants are form-stable, meaning their shape does not change. While silicone implants are round a gummy bear implant has more projection at its base, tapering off towards the top; its shape is similar to that of a teardrop.
A round breast implant tends to make the breast appear fuller than a teardrop shaped implant does.
Smooth breast implants are able to move within the implant pocket, which makes them look more natural during movement. They are also the softest breast implant option.
With a textured implant, the body naturally forms tissue that sticks to the implant and holds it in place.
A breast augmentation in and of itself does not lift the breasts; therefore, to lift severely drooping breasts, Dr. Guillot may need to perform a breast lift and breast augmentation. Many times, these procedures can be done simultaneously at The Oaks at Goodwood Medical Spa in Baton Rouge.
As one of the top plastic surgeons in Baton Rouge, Dr. Guillot enjoys meeting new people and helping them look their best.
