Breast Augmentation

Over time, many women begin to notice their breasts changing due to pregnancy, weight loss, breastfeeding, and the natural aging process. Others may feel their breasts are asymmetrical, underdeveloped, or too small and desire a bigger, perkier, and more balanced chest. Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, uses implants to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

When Should You Consider Breast Augmentation?

An Unbalanced Figure

You may feel that your breasts look uneven or do not complement your figure. Breast augmentation can correct breast asymmetry and achieve breasts that fit with the rest of your body to create a more balanced appearance.

Loss of Volume

As your breasts fluctuate with time and life changes, they can become smaller, flatter, and deflated. Breast augmentation can restore volume to your breasts for a more voluptuous appearance.

Incisions

Inframammary

  • Incisions are located along the crease beneath the breasts
  • Can accommodate any implant type and reduce the risk of complications
  • Provides more visibility in the breast pocket for implant placement during surgery
  • Scarring will occur but can be hidden by clothing

Periareolar

  • Incisions go around the perimeter of the areolas
  • Any scarring that occurs should blend in with the edges of the areolas
  • Allows for moderate control over implant placement but has an increased risk of changes in nipple sensation

Transaxillary

  • Incisions are made within the armpits
  • Does not leave scarring on the breasts
  • Only performed using saline implants

Transumbilical (TUBA)

  • Incisions are made through the belly button
  • Uses an endoscopic camera
  • Leaves no scars along the breasts
  • Only performed using saline implants

Placement

Implant placement can affect the overall positioning of your breasts. Dr. Hadeed usually performs submuscular breast augmentation surgery, where the implants are placed beneath the pectoral muscles. This helps create a more natural breast shape.

However, more active women, particularly those who routinely use their chest muscles, may prefer a subglandular placement above the muscles to avoid implant distortion during muscle contraction.

Combinations

Breast augmentation can be combined with other surgical procedures like breast lift surgery or a Mommy Makeover for even more enhancement.

Concerns

Recovery

After your surgery, you will be asked to wear a special compression bra to support your breasts and maintain their new shape. Swelling and bruising should resolve after a few weeks. You will need to avoid any heavy lifting for several weeks. You should be able to return to work two weeks following your procedure unless otherwise instructed.

Results

Breast augmentation results can be seen immediately after surgery. However, it may take several months for the swelling to subside completely and for the implants to settle. Most women feel more self-confident after complete recovery from the procedure.

Scars

Scars will depend on the type of incision used during your breast augmentation procedure. Should any visible scarring occur, it can be easily hidden by clothing and will fade over time.

Cost

The cost of your breast augmentation will be based on implant type, the incisions used, and other factors. Dr. Hadeed will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best meets your individual needs while creating the results you desire.

Ideal candidates should be in good health and have realistic expectations. Women with volume loss, undeveloped or asymmetrical breasts, or naturally small breasts can opt for this procedure. Patients will be asked to stop smoking and drinking for a few weeks before and after their surgery.

The length of breast augmentation surgery can vary depending on the amount of correction needed. Typically, the procedure will take around an hour to complete.

As with most surgical procedures, there are certain risks involved with breast augmentation. These include:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Changes in nipple sensation
  • Fluid buildup
  • Wrinkling of the skin over the implant
  • Capsular contracture (tightening of scar tissue)
  • Implant leakage or rupture
