Breast Augmentation Procedure

Is Breast Augmentation Right For Me?
Breast augmentation is a very popular procedure. In the past several years over 600,000 women have had breast enlargements in the United States alone.
Breast augmentation may be right for you if:
  • You are an adult woman of any age wishing for full breast development.
  • You have a personal desire to enhance your breasts.
  • You are a non-smoker.
  • You have no immediate plans for massive weight loss.
  • You are healthy and without a life-threatening illness or medical condition that can impair healing.
  • You have a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improving your body image.
What Results Should I Expect After Breast Augmentation?
  • Initial healing may include swelling and discomfort at the incision sites and in breast tissue overall.
  • Discomfort is common and can be controlled with medication.
  • A support bra may be recommended around the clock for the first week or two.
  • Follow all post-operative instructions carefully as this is essential to the success of your outcome.
  • Light, normal activity is typically possible within a day or two after surgery.
  • Intimate contact with breasts may resume when healing is more fully complete, usually within 4-6 weeks.
  • Healing will continue for several weeks as swelling resolves, implant position settles and incision lines continue to refine.
  • Incision lines are permanent, although inconspicuously located.
  • Initial wound healing may take 5-10 days. You should be ready to return to work and normal activity at this time, IF you feel comfortable, AND so long as you do not engage in any heavy lifting or vigorous exercise.
What Results Should I Expect Over Time?
  • The results of breast enlargement are immediately visible.
  • Final results appear gradually over several weeks as swelling resolves and breast size and shape settles.
  • Incision lines typically will fade over the first year, but again, are considered permanent.

Breast augmentations unfortunately do not stop time, so your breasts can change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and gravity. However, your enhanced breast contour and the freedom to wear the clothes you enjoy without the need for padded bras may bring you added self-confidence.

Breast Implants

Breast implants for breast augmentations
Breast augmentation requires surgical placement of breast implants to enhance breast size.
What Are My Options for Breast Implants?

Each patient has different needs, so our plastic surgeons address your specific needs during the consultation.

Women who are considering breast augmentation have a choice between saline or silicone (gel) implants.

There are several differences between the two implants:

Saline implants are less expensive, and if the implant leaks, the body will absorb the saline. However, if you do not want silicone in your body, you should note that there really is no such thing as a silicone-free implant, as the implant pouch for saline implants is made from silicone.

Silicone implants feel more natural than saline, which is the main advantage of silicone. However, it can be more difficult to detect leaks in these implants because of the cohesive nature of silicone gel. Years ago, silicone breast implants got bad press in the media. However, recent studies have offered reassurance about the safety of using silicone implants.

Implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants.

Pregnancy, weight loss and menopause may influence the appearance of augmented breasts over the course of a woman’s lifetime. Breast augmentation implants require maintenance over time, including regular examinations for breast health and to evaluate the condition of your implants.
