What is breast augmentation surgery?
Breast augmentation will enhance and balance out your upper body. Breast augmentation surgery will give you a more feminine, shapely appearance by raising the breast and placing either a saline-filled or silicone implant underneath the breast tissue or the chest muscle. To find out more about your options, we will discuss your personalize procedure during your consultation with Dr. Deisher or Dr. Humphrey.

Breast Augmentation with Silicone Implants
During your consultation visit, your surgeon will show you before and after pictures of patients who have undergone a breast augmentation. You will be able to see firsthand the difference the procedure made for these people.
What is the average cost of breast augmentation at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery in Cape Girardeau, Missouri? Is there a charge for the consultation?
The cost of your breast augmentation will be based upon the type of implant necessary to create your ideal look, and the extent of surgery necessary to achieve that goal. At Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery, the starting cost for breast augmentation is $4,590.00.
Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery in Cape Girardeau accepts several types of payment. They are cash, credit cards (Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express), money orders, cashier checks, and financing with an outside agency. Cosmetic breast augmentation is not covered by commercial insurance and will need to be paid in full before surgery. Make sure to arrange financing with a financing company of your choice before surgery.
Will it cost more if I decide to go submuscular or by incision site?
The surgeon does not increase his fee to insert the implant in a submuscular position. We do most breast augmentations by placing the implant in a submuscular position; however, during your initial breast implant consultation at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery, he will recommend which position will work best for your body.
Regarding incision site, we use three different incision sites: the inframammary fold (breast crease), periareolar (around the areola), and axillary (arm pit). The selection of the incision site will be determined after an exam of your breasts and after listening to your concerns regarding scarring. The surgeon will give his recommendation to the patient during the consultation visit at his office in Cape Girardeau.
On average, how many breast augmentations are performed in a year at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery?
Each year can vary, but annually our practice performs over 450 breast surgeries, with over 200 of those being breast augmentation surgeries.
Is there a better time of year to have the surgery performed?
You should schedule the surgery during a time when you can allow yourself to heal. After breast augmentation surgery, you will have a 10-15 pound lifting restriction (that will include lifting children) for at least 10 days following surgery. You also have to make adjustments at your place of work due to swelling and being on pain medication. In some cases, patients with desk jobs can have the procedure done over a long weekend. There are people in other jobs, such as hairdressers or massage therapists, who need to take up to two weeks off.
Is there anything I need to do to get myself ready for breast implant surgery at Dr. Deisher and Dr. Humphrey’s office in Cape Girardeau?
To reduce bruising and the risk of hematoma, you must stop taking blood thinners and vitamin E at least one week before and after surgery. If you are on prescription blood thinners, you may need to get medical clearance from your family doctor as well as instructions on how to stop these medications. We also want all herbal medication and diet pills (prescription and over-the-counter) stopped at least two weeks before surgery and one week following.
In Cape Girardeau, Missouri, cosmetic surgeries are elective procedures. The patient must be in overall good health before the surgery can be performed. If there are questions regarding your health, medical clearance from your family doctor may be required.
