Overview

There is no shame in wanting to feel more confident in your body. Breast implant surgery, also known as breast augmentation, is a safe and relatively simple cosmetic procedure for women who want to enjoy the confidence of larger, fuller breasts. Perhaps your breast size and shape have changed with age, weight loss, or pregnancy, or you simply want to enhance your appearance; our expert breast surgeons can help achieve your desired breast shape and size with a traditional silicone, form-stable silicone, or saline implant.

Types of Breast Augementation

Saline

Saline implants involve a round outer silicone shell filled with sterile salt water. Typically, the implant is placed into the breast empty and then filled once it's in place.

Silicone

Silicone implants involve a round outer silicone shell filled with a liquid silicone gel substance designed to create a look and feel similar to natural breast tissue.

“Form-Stable” Silicone

Form-stable silicone implants are teardrop-shaped rather than round, and made of a firm silicone gel (similar to the density of "gummy bears") to create a firmer breast shape.

Am I a

Candidate for Breast Augmentation Surgery?

If your breasts are naturally small; if one breast is smaller than the other; or if your breasts are elongated and "empty" on top, breast implants could help. Breast augmentation is a personal decision, and your feelings and expectations about the procedure are a primary indicator of positive outcomes.

Healthy, non-smoking women over the age of 18 who are not pregnant or breastfeeding are ideal candidates for breast implants.

Consultation

Breast implant or breast augmentation consults are available at all Plastic Surgery Center locations. The best technique for you will depend on various factors, including your breast composition, overall health, and desired results. With this in mind, our surgeons will review your medical history, answer questions, and discuss your ideal surgical outcomes to make a personalized recommendation. Using computer-assisted photography, we can also provide sample imagery of your expected surgical results.

What to Expect

During breast augmentation surgery, you will be placed under general anesthesia, and the surgeon will make a discrete incision where the breast implant is to be inserted. The type of incision and location is determined by your existing breast shape and size, desired outcome, and the potential for best results with minimal scarring. Incision types include: 

  • Inframammary (along the bottom of the breast below mammary glands)
  • Transaxillary (underarm, in the armpit)
  • Periareolar (around the nipple)

 

Once the incisions are made, the surgeon will carefully place the sterile implants beneath the breast tissue or, more commonly, under the chest muscle. Typically, our surgeons close incisions with buried, dissolvable stitches, a technique that reduces visible scars and increases patient comfort. Sometimes, a breast lift is performed with breast augmentation, which could impact the length of the surgery and recovery.

Recovery &
Results

Each person's recovery from breast augmentation will vary based on the extent of skin and tissue involved and your body’s ability to heal. A sterile bandage is placed over the incisions following surgery. Your breasts will be wrapped in a supportive bandage or surgical bra. Typically, you can expect to go home within a few hours.

Recovery and discharge instructions depend on the nature of your surgery, but you should plan to have a family member or friend drive you home. Pain and swelling can be managed with medication and ice in the first few days after surgery.

Some patients will go home with small tubes to drain blood and fluid that collect at the surgical site. Care instructions will be included in your discharge paperwork, and drain tubes will be removed in the office during your post-operative visit.

Most patients can resume regular activity within 2-3 weeks. Heavy lifting and strenuous exercise should be avoided for up to 6 weeks. In most cases, the long-term results of breast implants will be seen in three to six months. However, it can take up to a full year or longer to experience complete healing.
