What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that involves the use of breast implants or fat transfer to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Breast augmentation can be performed for a variety of reasons, including to improve the appearance of breasts that are naturally small or asymmetrical or to restore volume and shape lost due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss.

The procedure typically involves making incisions either under the breasts, around the nipples, or in the armpits, followed by the careful insertion and placement of customized breast implants.

Silicone vs. Saline Breast Implants

When considering breast augmentation, one of the decisions you will have to make is whether to choose silicone or saline breast implants. Both types of implants have their pros and cons, and the decision ultimately depends on your personal preferences and goals.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are filled with a silicone gel that closely mimics the look and feel of natural breast tissue. They are often preferred by women who want a more natural-looking result or who have less breast tissue to begin with. Silicone implants are also less likely to ripple or wrinkle than saline implants.

If a silicone implant ruptures, it may be more difficult to detect than a saline implant rupture and, therefore, requires closer monitoring over time.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. They are typically chosen by women who want a more firm and round result, as the implants can be filled to the desired size during surgery. Saline implants also have the advantage of being easier to detect if they rupture, as the saline solution is absorbed by the body, and the implant visibly deflates.

One potential downside of saline implants is that they may not feel as natural as silicone implants, especially in women with less breast tissue. They are also more prone to rippling or wrinkling, which can be visible under the skin.

What to Expect During Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Before your breast augmentation surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. Rahgozar to discuss your desired breast size, shape, and type of implant. During this meeting, he will also assess your overall health, medical history, and aesthetic goals to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. The doctor will then work with you to devise a customized treatment plan for your breast augmentation. On the day of the surgery, you will be given either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation.

Once you’re asleep or fully relaxed, your surgeon will make incisions in the locations agreed upon during your consultation. Your customized breast implants will then be inserted either behind the breast tissue or underneath the chest muscle. After the implants have been properly positioned, the incisions will be closed with sutures, and bandages will be applied as needed. After the procedure, you will be monitored in a recovery room until the anesthesia wears off. Once a couple of hours have passed, you’ll be able to have a friend or family member drive you home.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Implants in Thousand Oaks?

Adult women who are unsatisfied with the size, shape, and/or overall appearance of their breasts could be good candidates for breast augmentation. The procedure is a popular choice for women who have lost breast volume due to aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations.

To be an ideal candidate for the surgery, it’s also important that you meet the following requirements:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Be a non-smoker or willing to temporarily quit
  • Have realistic expectations

What Is the Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation?

After your breast augmentation procedure, you’ll need to rest and recover at home for approximately one to two weeks. During this time, you may experience some swelling, bruising, or soreness; Dr. Rahgozar will prescribe you pain medication as needed to reduce your discomfort. You will likely be prescribed a surgical support bra, which you’ll need to wear for several weeks to reduce swelling and ensure proper healing. While recovering, be sure to stay hydrated, get plenty of rest, and take regular light walks to keep your blood flowing.

Most patients can start easing back into their normal routine around one week after their procedure. However, it’s important to hold off on any heavy lifting or strenuous physical activity for at least a month.

How long does breast augmentation take?

On average, you can expect your breast augmentation procedure to take around one to two hours to complete.

Is breast augmentation permanent?

Breast augmentation is designed to be a long-term solution for enhancing the size and shape of your breasts. However, it is important to note that breast implants are not considered lifetime devices. Implants may need to be replaced at some point in the future, typically after 10-15 years.

What is fat transfer breast augmentation?

Fat transfer breast augmentation is an alternative breast augmentation technique that involves using your own fat to enhance the size and shape of your breasts. During the procedure, fat is harvested from one area of your body, such as your abdomen or thighs, and then injected into your breasts. This procedure is a good option for women who are looking for subtle, natural-looking enhancements to their breasts and want to avoid using implants.
