Whatever your reason, Dr. Braden Stridde is one of the plastic surgeons in the Seattle area with extensive experience and training in the latest surgical methods, including the latest generation of gel implants.

At Your Consultation
As a member of a community of plastic surgeons in the Tacoma area performing breast augmentations, Dr. Stridde is familiar with the various implant types and surgical approaches to best meet each of his patients' needs. After a thorough discussion with you at your consultation, Dr. Stridde will guide you through the breast augmentation decision-making process, reviewing implant size, shape, incision location, and position above or below the muscle. Along the way, they will make recommendations or share their preferences, and take the time to explain in detail the various options and trade-offs.
In some cases, Dr. Stridde may recommend a breast lift in addition to or instead of a breast augmentation. Women are encouraged to come in for a consultation and see for themselves the personalized attention we provide every patient.
Your Breast Augmentation
Surgery for breast implants at our Seattle area practice usually takes about 1 to 2 hours to perform. Incisions are made as small as possible and located so that they are well concealed. Your implants will be placed either above or below the pectoral muscle depending on your preference and surgeon recommendation. If you'd like more detail about exactly how this procedure is performed or specific information about what Dr. Stridde recommends, please contact our office and we'll be happy to share more information.
Recovery after Surgery
After breast augmentation surgery, your breasts will be supported with a post-surgical bra to aid in recovery, and you'll be sent home to rest in comfort. All patients receive prescriptions for an adequate supply of pain medication. Some discomfort and lack of energy are common for the first few days, and many women find it helpful to have a friend or loved one to help them around the house for a day or two after their breast augmentations. A degree of swelling is common, but should steadily diminish over 4 to 6 weeks. You'll be required to wear a surgical support bra to protect your results for a few weeks after the procedure. Dr. Stridde makes every effort to minimize scarring, and scars should begin to lighten and fade after a few months. You should be ready to return to work in about 3 to 7 days.
