Breast Augmentation – Fayetteville, Arkansas

We specialize in breast augmentation. It is our number one procedure; Dr. Vanderpool has performed thousands of successful breast augmentations. Breast size is important to many women for a variety of reasons. If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, augmentation surgery with board certified Fayetteville plastic surgeon R. Douglas Vanderpool, MD is a choice to consider.

Breast augmentation can:

  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve the balance of your figure
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, the procedure involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury. For women who would like to correct sagging in their breasts, Dr. Vanderpool can perform a breast lift with augmentation during a single operation.

Procedural Steps

Dr. Vanderpool uses techniques that require the smallest possible incisions in areas that are typically hidden by clothing. Common incision locations include the breast crease, in the underarm, or around the areola (pigmented skin surrounding the nipple).

During the breast augmentation surgery, implants are placed beneath the chest wall muscle or directly behind breast tissue, using either pre-filled implants or implants filled during surgery to create the desired volume.

Breast augmentation is generally performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia.


Results of breast augmentation using implants is immediate. Initially, patients can expect some discomfort and swelling, which should subside in 2-4 weeks. Scars from the incision lines will continue to flatten and fade for up to 1 year.

In choosing Dr. Vanderpool, a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you can be sure that you will receive the highest standard of safety, expertise and care. His goal is to promote confidence, renewed enthusiasm and improved appearance, revealing your true strengths while reflecting your inner beauty.
