Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation

Breast enlargement, or augmentation mammoplasty, enhances the body contour of a woman who wants to increase the size of her breasts. Augmentation is also used to correct a reduction in breast volume that can occur after pregnancy and to balance different breast sizes.

The biggest decision is determining implant size. Our doctors are very skilled and respectful when it comes to offering professional recommendations for breast augmentation. It’s important to consider what your breasts currently look like, how they may have looked previously, and how you want them to look. We’ll explain to you why factors like the size and shape of your breasts, the position on the chest wall, and the degree of ptosis also influence the appearance of your breasts after breast augmentation surgery.

What to Expect

Augmentation mammoplasty is done on an outpatient basis in our surgical center, usually under general anesthesia. An implant (prosthesis) is placed under the breast tissue or under the muscle. The incision can be made under the breast, around the nipple, or under the arm. A breast implant is composed of an outer silicone shell filled with saline or silicone. We will discuss with you the various types of implants and help you pick the one that best suits your needs.

There are many post-operative instructions that we’ll go over with you after the surgery. Most importantly, you’ll need someone to stay with you for the first 24 hours afterward. You’ll experience some pain and tightness as your body recovers. Avoid strenuous activities for several weeks and wear a soft bra at all times during the first two weeks.

Other complications include, but are not limited to, capsular contracture, bleeding, infection, rippling, irregularities of the skin, decreased nipple sensation, interference with breast feeding, and interference with mammography. It is important to have a thorough medical evaluation beforehand to address these potential risks. Women over the age of 35 are also required to have a pre-operative mammogram.
