Breast Augmentation

For many women, the natural size or shape of their breasts is less than ideal. If you would like to improve the appearance of your breasts, breast augmentation surgery can enhance breast size and shape. Breast augmentation can create a curvier figure, improve body proportions, enhance self-confidence, and help women to look and feel more feminine and attractive. Dr. Rey tailors each breast augmentation to match the needs of the individual patient for natural and appealing results.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Enhanced Volume

Enhanced Volume

Genetics, aging, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can all lead to small breasts or breast volume loss. Breast augmentation will provide volume and youthfulness to give you your ideal breast shape.

Improved Shape

Improved Shape

Uneven or oddly shaped breasts are very common and can occur due to aging, weight fluctuations, genetics, or pregnancy. Implant style and size are strategically chosen to provide a balanced, natural-looking appearance.

Boost in Confidence

Boost in Confidence

Increasing your breast size and improving your breast shape can boost your confidence significantly as your clothing fits better, shopping becomes easier, and you love the way you look and feel both in and out of clothing.

Design Your Breast Augmentation

Implant Material

Saline:

  • A silicone shelled filled with a saltwater solution
  • FDA approved for women 18 years or older
  • Inserted into the breast pocket empty and filled during the procedure, allowing for smaller incisions
  • Easier to detect implant leaks or ruptures
  • More prone to visible rippling and wrinkles
  • More likely to have visible implant edges

Silicone:

  • A silicone shell filled with cohesive silicone gel
  • FDA approved for women 22 years or older
  • Best simulates the look and feel of natural breast tissue
  • Less likely to develop visible ripples or wrinkles
  • May require a longer incision to place the implants
  • Implant leaks or ruptures can only be identified with an MRI
Implant Shape

Shape:

  • A round implant is the most common type of implant used because it doesn’t cause breast deformity if it rotates in the pocket
    • Round implants provide the greatest amount of lift, fullness, and cleavage but may provide more artificial-looking results
  • Teardrop implants are anatomically shaped with a gently sloping contour that creates the appearance of a natural breast slope
    • Can provide better breast projection and a more natural breast appearance
    • May cause breast distortion if they rotate in the pocket

Profile:

  • Low profile implants have a wider base and lower projection
  • High profile implants have a more narrow base and high projection
Implant Placement

Submuscular location

  • beneath the pectoral muscle, which provides more implant coverage for patients with minimal breast tissue

Subglandular location (also known as submammary)

  • above the pectoral muscle and beneath the breast tissue
Incision Location

Periareolar:

  • The incision is created around the outer border of the areola
  • Usually results in minor, if any, visible scarring
  • Increases risk of losing sensation in the nipples
  • May impair milk production in women who wish to breastfeed in the future

Inframammary:

  • The incision is created along the lower crease of the breast
  • Results in minor, if any, visible scarring
  • Can reduce the risk of implants bottoming out

Transaxillary:

  • The incision is placed in the armpit
  • Only allows for the placement of saline implants (with the use of an endoscope)
  • Results in almost no visible scarring

Transumbilical (TUBA):

  • Implants are placed through the belly button
  • Doesn’t result in any visible scarring
  • Only allows for the placement of saline implants (with the use of an endoscope)

Concerns

You will experience bruising and swelling following your procedure. A specialty bra should be worn for at least two weeks to support the breasts and minimize swelling. Most patients return to work during the second week of their recovery and resume their regular exercise routine during the fourth week. Most swelling should subside after six weeks.

The amount of scarring that develops is dependent on the techniques used as well as your body’s natural healing process. While some women will develop visible scarring, it is likely to fade over time.

The cost of this procedure may vary from patient to patient depending on various factors such as implant type, surgical fees, and anesthesia fees. A detailed quote will be provided during your consultation.

Anesthesia is used to prevent pain during the procedure. Mild discomfort after the procedure can be easily controlled with medication prescribed by your plastic surgeon.

Faq

The best candidates for breast augmentation surgery are healthy adult women who are dissatisfied with the size and shape of their breasts but have realistic expectations for what the surgery can accomplish (i.e., they are not expecting perfection). Patients who undergo breast augmentation do so not only for the obvious reason of increasing their breast size but also for the resulting boost in confidence that the procedure provides them.

Breast augmentation is performed using a general anesthetic to ensure patient safety and comfort.

No. Implants can slightly lift breast tissue, but if you suffer from sagging breasts, you will require a breast lift. The breast lift procedure is commonly combined with a breast augmentation to treat breast drooping and improve the results of your procedure.

Breast augmentation surgery is designed to provide long-term enhancement. Most women achieve a satisfactory breast appearance that lasts them for years. Some implants may require replacement after 10 or 15 years if they become worn or damaged. Consult the manufacturer for typical implant life and warranties.
