What is Breast Augmentation?

At The Clinic for Plastic Surgery in Webster breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that allows you to improve breast size, profile, and projection.

What Is The Difference Between Breast Augmentation and a Breast Lift?

Breast augmentation aims to increase the size of small breasts or correct asymmetry, most often with implants. Breast lift surgery, on the other hand, involves lifting sagging breasts to restore a perky appearance after weight loss or breastfeeding. A breast lift can take place with or without breast implants depending on your preferences.

The Difference Between Breast Augmentation and Implants

The most popular cosmetic breast augmentation procedure involves placing implants into the breast pocket, although this is not your only option. Some surgeons also offer breast fat transfer, which entails harvesting fat from other areas with liposuction, then injecting the fat into the breasts.

What Are The Benefits Of Breast Augmentation?

Many women are happy with their breasts. However, breast implants may be the next step if you’ve developed small breasts that are out of proportion with your figure, have breast asymmetry, or want to restore volume after pregnancy or weight loss. Placing implants in the breast does not just increase bust size; it also improves cleavage, forward projection, and gives the breasts a more appealing shape.

Some of the benefits of breast augmentation include:

  • Increase breast size
  • More defined cleavage
  • Correction of asymmetrical breasts
  • Increased forward breast projection
  • Restored perkiness after weight loss or pregnancy
  • Improved fit of your favorite clothes, swimwear, and bras

Types Of Breast Implants

When you come to The Clinic for Plastic Surgery in Webster, you will have several implant styles to choose from. Breast implant styles can vary greatly in terms of size, shape, feel, and projection. During your consultation, you will be able to see and touch different types of implants, such as the following.

Silicone Implants

Silicone breast implants have a silicone shell filled with soft silicone gel. The gel cohesiveness varies based on the style of the implant. Silicone gel resembles the weight and softness of natural breast tissue, so your augmented breasts will look and feel as natural as possible.

Pros: Realistic weight and feel; maximum cleavage
Cons: Can look artificial on thin body types

Anatomical Implants

Most silicone implants have a round shape, but the newest implants have a teardrop shape. The slope on the upper portion of these implants mimics the slope of natural breasts, providing a realistic-looking result. Anatomic implants tend to have a firmer, gummier texture than classic round silicone implants. Thus, they are also sometimes referred to as “gummy bear implants.”

Pros: Realistic-looking shape
Cons: Firmer texture; slightly longer incision

Saline Implants

Saline breast implants have an outer silicone shell with a sterile saline fluid inside them. Unlike silicone implants, they do not come pre-filled. Instead, Dr. Sukkar places the empty implant shell into the breast pocket and then inserts the saline solution to your desired size.

Pros: Most affordable
Cons: Implant rippling; Does not feel as natural as silicone gel

Am I a Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

The ideal breast enhancement candidate:

  • Maintains a healthy body mass index (BMI)
  • Has realistic cosmetic goals and expectations
  • Is not pregnant
  • Does not smoke
  • Is in good physical health

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Dr. Sukkar’s anesthetist will first sedate you with general anesthesia. From there, Dr. Sukkar will make incisions around the areola, along the lower breast crease, or within the armpit, depending on what you agreed to during your consultation. He will then create a pocket in the breast to make room for the implant. For submuscular implants, he will make the dissection below the muscle. If you choose subglandular placement, he will place the pocket above your pectoral muscle. Finally, he will place the implant into the pocket and close the incision.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Most women return to work in five to seven days. Driving is safe to resume within a few days to a week. Generally speaking, you should be able to return to the gym within six weeks.

Your chest may feel tight, swollen, and tender initially. Any bruising should subside in two weeks. Remember to take all prescribed medications to alleviate pain and ward off infection. This assures the safest and most comfortable recovery possible.

Breast Augmentation Results

For our patients in Webster breast implants typically result in immediate breast enlargement. However, what you see after waking from surgery is not your final result. Your implants may appear firm and high on the chest. The implants can take several months to a year to settle into their final position. This is colloquially known as the ‘drop and fluff’. As the post-operative swelling resolves, the implants and tissues will relax, causing the implants to take on a natural look and feel.

How Long do Breast Implants Last?

The lifespan of breast implants can vary. They do not expire, but they can wear over time. Most patients have their implants removed and replaced within ten years, although you may get more or less mileage out of your implants. If you are still happy with your breasts and your implants are still intact, there is no need to have a breast implant revision unless you wish to do so.

Can You Breast Feed If You Have Breast Implants?

Breast implants are unlikely to interfere with breastfeeding. Most women go on to breastfeed without any issues.

Do I Need To Have Someone Drive Me home because of anesthesia?

Yes, a family member or friend must be present to drive you home. It is not safe to drive for up to 24 hours after general anesthesia.
