Who is a good candidate for a Breast Augmentation with Implants?

A good candidate for a Breast Augmentation with Implants are typically women who would like to modify the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts. This procedure can help to enhance breast volume, improve breast shape, and correct any asymmetry between the breasts.

Women who have experienced breast changes due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss are also a good fit for this procedure. It’s important to have realistic expectations and understand that the procedure is not a solution for sagging breasts, which may require a breast lift in addition to implants.

It’s also important for candidates to be in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the procedure. Prior to the surgery, our plastic surgeons will evaluate your medical history, perform a physical exam, and discuss your goals and expectations to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure.

What are the results of this procedure?

The results of a Breast Augmentation with Implants can vary from person to person, depending on factors such as implant size, shape, and placement. However, in general, patients can expect to see a noticeable increase in breast size and volume, as well as improved breast shape and symmetry.

Following the procedure, you will likely experience some swelling and discomfort, but these symptoms should improve over time as you heal. Once fully healed, you should be able to enjoy your new, fuller breasts and feel more confident in your appearance.

It’s important to note that breast implants are not permanent and may need to be replaced or removed in the future. 

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this procedure performed?

Breast implants are typically made of a silicone shell filled with either saline (sterile saltwater) or silicone gel. There are various types of breast implants available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Here are the most common types:

  1. Saline implants: These implants are filled with sterile saltwater after being placed in the breast. 
  2. Silicone implants: These implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, which feels more like natural breast tissue. 
  3. Cohesive gel implants: Also known as “gummy bear” implants, these are a type of silicone implant that contains a thicker, more cohesive gel. 
  4. Round implants: As the name suggests, these implants are round in shape and can create a fuller, more dramatic look. They are typically used in patients who want more upper pole fullness.
  5. Teardrop or anatomical implants: These implants are shaped like a natural breast, with more fullness at the bottom and a tapered upper pole. They can create a more natural-looking result, but require a precise placement during surgery. To avoid rotation.

The type of implant used will depend on the patient’s goals and preferences, as well as their anatomy and other individual factors. Your surgeon will discuss the options with you and help you make an informed decision.

What can I expect during the procedure?

Breast augmentation with implants is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. The specific details of the procedure may vary depending on the patient’s individual anatomy and the surgeon’s approach, but here is a general overview of what to expect:

  1. Incision: The surgeon will make an incision in the breast, usually in the crease under the breast (inframammary incision) or around the nipple (periareolar incision).
  2. Placement of implant: The surgeon will create a pocket in the breast tissue either under the chest muscle (submuscular placement) or directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular placement). The implant will be inserted into the pocket and positioned to create the desired shape and size.
  3. Closing incision: Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision using sutures or surgical tape. A bandage or surgical bra will be placed over the breasts to provide support and promote healing.
  4. Recovery: The patient will be monitored in a recovery area until the anesthesia wears off and they are stable. They will be given pain medication and instructions for postoperative care, including how to care for the incision site, how to manage pain, and when to follow up with the surgeon.

Most patients can return to light activities within a few days, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. The full recovery period can take several months, during which time the breasts will settle into their final position and the incision scars will fade. The surgeon will provide guidance on when it is safe to resume normal activities.
