Breast Augmentation

At her Barrington, IL, practice, Dr. Renee Burke specializes in breast augmentation to help women feel more feminine, proportional, and confident. As a female plastic surgeon, Dr. Burke knows what a woman’s breasts can mean for her self-esteem and the way she carries herself.

The size and shape of your breasts are influenced by a number of different factors, from genetics to pregnancy to changes in your weight. Whether your breasts have endured changes throughout life, or they were never really the breasts you wanted, an augmentation can increase fullness and create more youthful, feminine contours. Dr. Burke’s goals for your breast augmentation are to create or restore balance and volume to help you attain your ideal breast shape and size.

Good Breast Augmentation Candidates

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country, with hundreds of thousands of women benefiting from breast implants each year. Dr. Burke customizes breast augmentation procedures based on the unique goals of her patients. Your options involve the implants’ type, size, and profile, in addition to incision location and placement. This enables a mother to restore lost breast volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding; a breast cancer survivor to take back her feminine figure after a mastectomy; or a woman who has always had smaller breasts to achieve the fuller, curvier figure she has always wanted. Women who have had children may want to combine breast augmentation with body contouring procedures as part of mommy makeover surgery.

Your Consultation

Most women want breast augmentation results that look and feel natural and these goals guide Dr. Burke when she creates surgical plans. Your consultation with Dr. Burke will help her to fully understand what it is you are hoping to accomplish with your procedure. She uses exact measurements and specific implant styles the two of you choose together to achieve a beautifully proportioned physique. She goes through the details of all your options—from choosing a size to deciding between different shapes and profiles—taking into account your unique breast anatomy, personal preference, and lifestyle to help make any recommendations.

What to Expect From Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Burke uses today’s most current techniques in breast augmentation to ensure beautiful and natural looking results. She offers traditional incision locations, hidden under the breast or the edge of the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple). Additionally, Dr. Burke specializes in transaxillary breast augmentation, where the incision is concealed within a natural crease of the underarm region, avoiding any visible scars on the breast.

Your surgery with Dr. Burke will be performed under general anesthesia. Once your specified incision has been made, Dr. Burke will carefully place your chosen implants within a pocket created either above or beneath the pectoral muscle (this will also be determined during your consultation). Silicone implants are put in place pre-filled to your desired size.

For a quicker and more efficient procedure, Dr. Burke uses the Keller Funnel™. The Keller Funnel is an implant delivery device that allows for no-touch insertion of the implants into the breast.

Once Dr. Burke has achieved your desired results, your incisions are closed and any necessary dressings or surgical drains are put into place.

Recovery and Results

Most women return home shortly after their surgery under the care of a loved one.

Dr. Burke generally recommends returning to light activities within a day or two of your augmentation and full activities within 2 to 3 weeks. You will notice fuller, younger-looking breasts almost immediately, with results only getting better as bruising, swelling, and incision lines continue to diminish as you heal. We love hearing the stories of our patients who have undergone breast augmentation–of how they spent hours at the mall trying on everything for their new body, their first time wearing a bikini, or the simple joy they felt when first seeing the full outcome of their procedure in the mirror.

Results are usually long-term; however, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and natural aging may alter the shape of your breasts after augmentation.

“For years I dealt with being flat chested. I was never able to hold up a dress without having a super padded bra, and now with the help of Dr. Burke, I am able to hold up a dress. Just in time to start trying on wedding dresses.”
