Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
During your initial Oakland County breast augmentation consultation is an opportunity for you and Dr. Lofman to discuss any concerns you may have and review your goals. Prepare for your consultation by doing a little research into the procedure and bring photos of realistic “after” results you wish to achieve. From there, Dr. Lofman will collaborate with you to create a plan to achieve the body symmetry and appearance you want.
During your consultation, Dr. Lofman will examine and discuss:
What Can I Expect During a Breast Augmentation Procedure With Dr. Lofman?
Once you choose a breast augmentation plan that will meet and exceed your expectations, Dr. Lofman makes your experience the most comfortable and enjoyable process available in Michigan. Dr. Lofman’s commitment to his patients includes advising them of the steps involved in the breast augmentation process, all of which aim to bring the highest level of service, support, and satisfaction. While your breast augmentation will be unique to you, here are some general steps you can expect.
Plan on arriving at the hospital or surgery center approximately an hour before your procedure. After our team has welcomed you and checked you in, Dr. Lofman will ensure you are comfortable, answer any last questions, review details, and perform surgical markings. Once you are resting comfortably under general anesthesia, Dr. Lofman will begin your Oakland County breast augmentation.
According to the procedural plan created during your consultation with Dr. Lofman, he will begin by creating small incisions in the creases underneath each breast or along the border of the areola to place your breast implants.
Dr. Lofman often uses the no-touch Keller Funnel method for inserting breast implants, which allows for smaller incisions and scars and reduces the chances of breast implant contamination or capsular contracture.
Breast augmentations are an outpatient surgery. You’ll need someone to drive you home and stay with you for at least 24 to 48 hours. Dr. Lofman may prescribe you pain medication.
For approximately three months following your breast augmentation, you will need to wear a support bra full-time to provide support to your breasts and minimize swelling.
Breast Augmentation Results
Most patients notice an immediate improvement to their overall figure following breast augmentation, including fuller, more symmetrical breasts. Some patients experience bruising and swelling that temporarily obscures their results. These side effects will gradually resolve as you heal, allowing the new contours to become more noticeable. However, swelling may take up to six months to fully resolve.
You will get long-lasting results from your Michigan breast augmentation by maintaining your healthy diet and exercise routine. Breast implants are not lifelong devices, and you should consider getting them replaced every decade or so.

Novi, MI Breast Augmentation
The Keller Funnel is best used with larger implants in order to maintain a smaller scar.
Implant style and profile is based on the individual patient’s measurements. Every patient is different and therefore requires their own specific implant
Patients are more comfortable when they have done a little research into their goals. Many patients bring photos of an after result that they wish to achieve. This can help us discuss what realistic result we can hope to achieve.
Oftentimes after a large amount of weight loss, there may be loss of elasticity of the skin. These patients are best suited for the “internal bra” support of mesh.
Cleavage can be obtained under most circumstances. Position of the implant (above or below the muscle) will help determine the extent of the cleavage possible.
There are a few factors that are assessed at the time of a consultation. The size of the implant plays an important role as well.
Patients are asked to refrain from exercising for at least 8 weeks.
The no touch technique minimizes what will come in contact with the implant at the time of surgery. This may help decrease chances of bacterial contamination and/or capsular contracture.
Most patients agree that the Silicone Gel implant looks and feels the most natural.
It is extremely rare to lose sensation from breast augmentation surgery alone.
Drains are typically not placed with a primary breast augmentation surgery.
Absorbable stitches will be placed which do not require removal after surgery.
This depends on the type of work being done. Less physical jobs may require one week off of work. More physical jobs could require 4-6 weeks off.
I ask my patients to wait 8 weeks before exercising.
Not many complications. Mild asymmetry may occur. Capsular contracture is rare in my practice.
All of my patients come to my office and try on sizes in order to ensure they will get the right size for them.
I typically place the small scar within the inframammary fold which cannot be seen without manipulating the breast.
It is possible for the implant to rupture. This is rare but does occur. Patients may not even be aware unless they obtain an MRI.
Every patient that has breast implants can still get a mammogram.
It is very important to walk around after surgery. Avoid stretching your arms out. Avoid lifting anything heavier than 10 pounds.
I ask my patients to wear a support bra for at least three months after surgery.
Yes, I always perform breast augmentation surgery under general anesthesia.
It is advisable for the first 24-48 hours to have someone stay with you.
Breast implants should not be considered “forever” implants. They should be replaced every 10 years.
