Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is performed on women who desire to have larger breasts. This can occur after dramatic weight loss and consequently loss of breast tissue.

Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and the plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. Incision options include 1 of 3:

Inframammary incision

Transaxillary incision

Periareolar incision

Incisions vary based on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your particular anatomy, and patient-surgeon preference.

Silicone breast implants or saline breast implants?
Breast size and shape are important, so be honest and open about your expectations when talking with your surgeon. Implant type and size will be determined not just on your desired increase in size but more importantly on your breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type.

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. They can be filled with varying amounts of saline, which can affect the shape, firmness and feel of the breast. Should the implant shell leak, a saline breast implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body.

Silicone breast implants are filled with an elastic gel. The gel feels and moves much like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket.

Step 4 – Inserting and placing the breast implant

After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either:
Under the pectoral muscle, or over the pectoral muscle, directly behind the breast tissue.

Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time the incision lines will fade.

The results of breast augmentation 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 and realize the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.
