Dr. H. Daniel Atwood is a plastic surgeon providing personalized breast augmentation surgery. Our patient-focused team in Fayetteville, AR, can help you achieve beautiful and natural-looking results with minimal scarring and an expedited recovery.
Our practice tailors each augmentation procedure to suit your unique proportions and contours. To provide you with maximum options when it comes to your surgery.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Atwood will plan your surgery by discussing the breast size and shape you hope to achieve. We provide before and after images of our patients to help you communicate your goals. Once your goals are clear, we will do our best to match or exceed your desired results.
We recommend that you quit smoking for six weeks prior to your surgery. In order to maintain the best results, you should ideally break the habit for good. One of our compassionate team members will spend as much time as you need to address your questions and concerns. Patient education is key to the success of cosmetic surgery, and we are committed to keeping you informed every step of the way.
The careful steps that Dr. Atwood takes during surgery have helped his practice maintain an extremely low rate of capsular contracture and other complications.
On the day of your surgery, a licensed anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort during your procedure.
Next, Dr. Atwood will strategically place your incisions for minimal, low-visibility scarring. In most cases, Dr. Atwood recommends placing your implants under the pectoral muscle as opposed to under the skin to help reduce the risk of rippling in the upper region of the breast following augmentation. This technique, combined with the careful steps that Dr. Atwood takes during surgery, has helped his practice maintain an extremely low rate of capsular contracture and other complications.
Your surgery will take approximately one to two hours. Once Dr. Atwood has placed your silicone or saline implants, he will suture the incisions.
Dr. Atwood recommends a combination of pain medication, arm exercises, and arnica to reduce the amount of pain and swelling that you experience following your surgery. Patients should also abstain from strenuous physical activity for a period following surgery to avoid injury and ensure optimal results.
