Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
You may be a suitable candidate for breast augmentation if you:
- Have naturally small breasts
- Have breasts that have lost volume due to pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight fluctuations and/or aging
- Have asymmetrical breasts
- Are in good physical and psychological health
- Have realistic expectations of breast augmentation
Prior to breast augmentation, you will meet with one of our plastic surgeons to discuss your candidacy, details of the procedure and what you hope to achieve. Your surgeon will perform a physical examination and evaluation of your medical history. He or she will also ask you to describe your cosmetic concerns and goals. All of your treatment options will be discussed during your consultation, including whether you could benefit from a breast lift with implants combination procedure. Your surgeon will work with you to develop your personalized treatment plan.
Breast Implant Choices
You have several choices of breast implants each of which has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. We prefer the natural look and feel of silicone gel implants.
Breast implants can be placed in front of or behind the pectoral muscle. To help you select the size of your implants, our surgeons will review your size and cup preferences in detail. Our team will help you decide on the type, size, placement and other details of your breast implants based on your anatomy, lifestyle, personal preferences and other factors.
Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure and is generally performed under anesthesia. During the procedure, your surgeon will create an incision on the breast to place the implant. There are multiple incision techniques used for breast augmentation such as:
- Periareolar incision – made around the outer perimeter of the areola
- Inframmary incision – made on the natural fold of the breast
- Transaxillary incision – made in the armpit area
Once the implants are properly positioned and all of the surgical modifications have been made, the surgeon will close the incisions using sutures, dress the breasts with soft bandages and place a surgical bra on top. Our staff will provide you with a detailed list of instructions to follow during your recovery. We will also schedule several follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress.
