What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure that enlarges the breasts to create a fuller appearance. It is known as one of the most common cosmetic surgeries, providing women who dislike their breast shape numerous options for improvement. With the help of breast implants or fat grafting, this enhancement surgery improves breast shape, size, and symmetry, resulting in a beautiful and natural-looking outcome. New Orleans, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder is highly trained in executing this surgery and performs many breast augmentations every year. When you have your consultation at Stalder Plastic Surgery, Dr. Stalder will address your aesthetic desires and concerns and provide you with all the options available while creating a surgical plan to achieve your goals.

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

Incision type, as well as implant placement, are discussion points that will need to be made before surgery. During the procedure, the chosen incision is created, and the implant will be placed in its position. There are a couple of methods that may be used for implant placement. These are either submuscular placement (under the pec muscle) or submammary/subglandular placement (over the pec muscle). Where to place the breast implant depends on numerous factors, including the size and type of implant, as well as the expertise of Dr. Stalder. Regardless of the incision, scarring is usually minimal. Placement and location are based on your body type, implant size, and lifestyle.

Cosmetic breast surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery using general anesthesia. Following the incision, the chosen implant will be moved through it, deposited into a surgically created pocket, and then fitted into its proper position. Following the placement of the implant, the incision is carefully secured with skin adhesives or sutures. Each patient will be taken to a private recovery space and carefully monitored before release. You will be sent home wearing a compression garment to assist with swelling. Several days after surgery, the swelling will start to dissipate, and the breasts will begin to feel normal as they get used to their new position. Many patients can return to normal activities within a few days; however, physical exertion, such as exercise, should be delayed for roughly 6 – 8 weeks. This surgery results in gorgeous outcomes that appear normal and natural. This procedure oftentimes can be life-changing for many patients, offering them the opportunity to feel more self-assured.

About Us

I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!
