Breast Augmentation Surgery Using FDA Approved Breast Implants

Our skilled surgeons perform breast enhancement surgery using two techniques:

Breast implant procedure: Breast augmentation with implants involves the surgical placement of implants to enhance the size and shape. The procedure typically begins with an incision made either under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit, through which the implant is inserted either behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. After positioning the implant, the incisions are closed, and the patient undergoes a recovery period to allow for healing and adjustment to the new breast size.

Four types of implants that our surgeons use are –

  • Saline Implants: Filled with sterile salt water solution, these implants are inserted into the breasts through small incisions and are filled to the desired size during the surgery.
  • Silicone Implants: These implants consist of a silicone outer shell filled with silicone gel, and need a longer incision. Silicone implants offer a more natural feel and are available in various shapes, sizes, and textures.
  • Gummy Bear Implants: These more stable implants referred to as cohesive gel implants, are made of a highly cohesive silicone gel that maintains its shape even if the implant shell is damaged.
  • IDEAL IMPLANT: This structured implant made from safe and proven implant materials, offers a natural look and feel along with the safety offered by saline solution.

After carefully assessing your physical aspects and cosmetic goals, our plastic surgeons will recommend the implant type, technique, and placement alternatives that will provide the best results for you.

Composite breast augmentation: Women without enough breast tissue to hold the implant or those who do not have enough fat for a standalone fat grating procedure may benefit from this combination strategy. By injecting the autologous fat over the implants, this procedure blends the volume projection provided by implants with the natural look and feel of an overlying fat graft, providing the best results.

The ideal candidate for mammoplasty with implants is an individual who –

  • is in good overall health
  • has realistic expectations

Candidates should also be non-smokers or willing to quit temporarily, as smoking can impact healing.

Recovery times vary, but most patients can resume normal activities within a week. Temporary discomfort and swelling are common, but our post-operative care plans ensure a smooth recovery, with detailed instructions and follow-up appointments to monitor progress.

What are the potential risks associated with breast enlargement surgery?

While complications are rare, risks include infection, changes in nipple sensation, or implant-related issues. Our surgeons prioritize safety, discuss potential risks during consultations, and employ advanced techniques to minimize these concerns.

Can I breastfeed after the procedure?

Breastfeeding is generally possible after breast enlargement surgery. However, it’s essential to discuss your plans with our surgeons during the consultation to address any potential impact on breastfeeding and ensure the chosen technique aligns with your future goals.

How long do implants last and is maintenance required?

Implants are long-lasting, but they may need replacement over time. Regular check-ups and monitoring are crucial, and our surgeons guide when to consider implant replacement or revision surgery to maintain optimal results.
