Breast Augmentation

What is a Breast Augmentation or Mammoplasty?


Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a "breast aug" or "boob job" by patients, involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts. This procedure can also restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or improve natural breast size asymmetry. 


What Breast Augmentation Surgery Can Do

 Breast Augmentation can:

  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve balance of breast and hip contours
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Breast implants may also be used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury. 

Breast Augmentation Candidates

  • You are physically healthy and you aren't pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small  breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss or with aging
  • You are unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing "empty"
  • Your breasts are asymmetrical

Breast Augmentation Process

Breast Augmentation Recovery

 Immediately after surgery, during your Breast Augmentation Recovery, you will be taken into a recovery area for close monitoring. Your breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and an elastic bandage or support bra will minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. You may be permitted to go home when you are stable for discharge, after an hour or so. 

  Because it is possible to bleed into the pockets around the breast implants for the first several days, take it easy until you have permission to increase your activity level. 

Breast Augmentation Results

 While a breast augmentation yields larger breasts right away, the final results may take a few weeks as the swelling subsides and the skin stretches. Some patients may need to wear a bandeau to help shape their breasts, especially if they have underlying asymmetry or very small breasts to start with. Incision lines may take several months, even a couple of years, to fade. 

 To achieve optimal breast augmentation results, follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions and return for follow-up visits. 

Types of Breast Implants

Breast Saline Implants

 Saline Breast Implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.

Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18 or older. 

Breast Silicone Implants

 Silicone Breast Implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. 

If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket. 

 Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 22 or older. 

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

 Form-stable implants are sometimes referred to as Gummy Bear Breast Implants because they maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken.

The consistency of the silicone gel inside the implant is thicker than traditional silicone gel implants. These implants are also firmer than traditional implants.

What is Breast Lift Surgery?


 A Breast Lift, also known as Mastopexy, raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. 


 Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. 

A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. 

These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity

Breast Lift Candidates

You may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery if:

 You may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery if:

  • You are physically healthy and maintain a stable weight
  • You do not smoke
  • You are bothered by the feeling that your breasts sag or have lost shape and volume
  • Your breasts have a flatter, elongated shape or are pendulous
  • When unsupported, your nipples fall below the breast crease
  • Your nipples and areolas point downward
  • You have stretched skin and enlarged areolas
  • One breast is lower than the other

Breast Lift Results

 The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from surgery. The final results of your breast lift will appear over the next few months as breast shape and position continue to settle. 

Breast Lift Recovery

 During your breast lift recovery, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions after the procedure is completed. You'll need to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breasts as they heal. 

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast Reduction

Also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. 

Breast Reduction Results

 The results of breast reduction surgery will be long-lasting. Your new breast size should help relieve you from the pain and physical limitations experienced prior to breast reduction. 

 However, over time your breasts can change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and gravity. 

Breast Reduction Recovery

 When your breast reduction procedure is complete, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions. 

An elastic bandage or support bra may be worn to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. 

What is Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation?

 Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results. 

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Risks Include:

  • Cysts
  • Infection
  • Microcalcification
  • Necrosis (death) of fat cells
  • Possibility that some of the transferred fat cells will leave the breast area
