Breast Augmentation: Before & After, Procedure, and Recovery
Are you considering increasing the size of your breasts through breast implants or fat grafting? Breast augmentation is a very common plastic surgery procedure chosen by thousands of women each year. The procedure can help improve the symmetry of the breasts, increase size, increase volume, and help a woman achieve the breasts she’s been dreaming of.
About the breast augmentation procedure
Before undergoing your procedure we’ll determine whether an implant or fat-grafting is right for you. The different options are:
- Fat Grafting: This can be done to achieve a fuller look with a careful injection of fat. In this procedure, fat is injected through very small cannulas leaving minimal evidence of the procedure.
- Saline Breast Implants: For saline implants, the shell is filled with saline to your desired volume, increasing the shape and size of your breasts with a firmer feel.
- Silicone Breast Implants: For silicone implants, the implant shell is filled to your desired volume. This type of implant offers a more natural feel.
- Ideal Breast Implants: Ideal Implants are saline implants that provide a natural feel and youthful look without using silicone gel. Ideal Implants use a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold the saline.
During your consultation, we’ll discuss your cosmetic surgery goals and each option as they relate to your goals. For some patients, we even add an additional procedure to achieve their goals. For example, a breast lift or even a tummy tuck can be added so that your recovery time is combined and you can achieve all your goals at one time.
