Breast Augmentation FAQs

Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammoplasty) is a surgical procedure performed in order to increase the size and/or alter the shape of a woman's breasts through the use of breast implants. This plastic surgery procedure typically takes anywhere from 1-2 hours. Most patients are back to work in a few days. By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman's breast size by one or more bra cup sizes.

Important Note: Every single patient is different, and has a different scenario. Because of that, it is very important that prior to making a decision, you contact a board certified plastic surgeon, and consult with them about your goals, desires and to see if you are a good candidate for this plastic surgery procedure.

Are you a good candidate for Breast Augmentation?

  • Have your breast lost there fullness due to weight loss or pregnancy?
  • Are your breasts moderately disproportionate in size or shape?
  • Are you unhappy with the shape of your breast?
  • Are you unhappy with the firmness of your breast?
  • Do you feel that your breasts are too small?
  • Are you willing to discuss, with your plastic surgeon, your desired results and what your goals are of the surgery? Are you willing to listen to the advice your plastic surgeon has for you, as some times, what you think is the best procedure for you, is not. A different procedure may accomplish your desired results.
  • Are you over 18 years old (saline breast implants) or over 22 years old (silicone breast implants)?
If you:
  • Have unrealistic expectations this may not be for you. You should discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
  • Are not physically healthy, you would not be a good candidate for breast augmentation.
  • Are doing this for someone else, you should reconsider. It is a very personal decision, and therefore, it is your decision.




Risks
  • Reaction to the anesthesia.
  • The most common problem is capsular contracture. This occurs if the scar or capsule around the implant begins to tighten.
  • Excessive bleeding following the operation may cause some swelling and pain.
  • A small percentage of patients can develop an infection around the implant. This can occur at any time, but most often seen within a week after surgery.
  • Some patients report that their nipples become oversensitive, undersensitive, or even numb but this usually disappears over time.
  • Leak or ruptured breast implant.
