Who?

NATURAL SMALL BREASTS

Women may have naturally small breasts and may be dissatisfied especially if not harmonious with the rest of the body. 

 

BREAST ASYMMETRY

Most women have asymmetrical breasts and usually is not significant.  Although, when there is a noticeable difference this can be quite distressing.  Placement of different sizes of implants will make a difference especially in improving self- confidence.  

 

 

BREAST VOLUME LOSS

Loss of volume can occur after pregnancy, aging and weight loss.  Specifically known as volume ptosis or droop of the breast due to loss of breast volume.  

What?

saline-vs-silicone.jpg

Breast augmentation can be performed with placement of implants or a person's own fat.

Implants are used more commonly and come in a variety of sizes, shapes and profiles.

 

Implants are made with a silicone outer shell and are filled with either silicone or saline (salt water).  Silicone feels more natural with less rippling.  Saline allows for potentially a smaller incision and are more cost effective than silicone. 

Picking the size of the implant can be quite stressful.  The key is not to focus on the

size/volume/cc's or the cup size.  It is best to focus on the desired shape and fullness.  Using your desired goal photos, anatomy, external sizers, and intraoperative sizers lead to a successful outcome with a high satisfaction rate.

How?

The Incision

Depending on the technique used incisions can be placed in the axilla (arm pit), belly button, Periareolar (bottom of the nipple-areola) and the breast crease.  

 

 

Under or Above the Muscle

Depending on your anatomy (thickness of your skin and breast tissue) will dictate whether the implant is placed.  A thorough discussion regarding the advantages of submuscular (under the muscle) such as decreased incidence of capsular contracture will be weighed against the disadvantages such as the possibility of animation deformity.  

Common

Concerns

Recovery

A personalized postoperative recovery plan will be given to you.  Usually you are able to exercise (non-impact) at 4 weeks and lift heavy weights and treadmill at 6 weeks.   

Pain

Usually oral pain medication is required from two to five days after surgery. A muscle relaxant is also given especially when the implant is placed under the muscle. 

Scars

Scar management is discussed including scar massage and silicone tape/gel placement. Incisions are made as small as possible to facilitate implant placement while avoiding damage to the implant itself.
