What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that increases the size of your breasts. It is a solution for any healthy woman who’s tired of having a small, flat chest. It’s also an excellent choice for any woman who has lost all or part of her breasts to cancer or other illnesses.

Breast augmentation is a straightforward, safe surgery that has been successfully performed on many women. It gets unanimously high ratings on cosmetic surgery review sites. It can change your body in a matter of hours.

Your Choices When Getting Breast Augmentation
You can customize your breast augmentation procedure to get the best results for your body. You should always start by scheduling a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon.
During your discussion, you can talk about your goals for surgery and select the size of implants you want. Our surgeon can also explain the procedure and what to expect. Next to the procedure itself, your consultation is the second most important part of any cosmetic surgery. The more informed you are, the happier you’ll be with your results.
Implant Type: Silicone or Saline?
One decision to make is whether you want silicone or saline implants. Many women get silicone implants. Silicone implants have some distinct advantages.
Benefits of Silicone Implants
Silicone implants look and feel natural.
- Modern implants have natural-looking movement that mimics the movement of natural breasts.
- Silicone implants are long-lasting.
- Silicone is safe and FDA-approved.
- You can choose smooth or textured implants.
- Silicone tends to ripple less than saline. This is important if you have a slender frame with only a thin layer of breast tissue covering the implant.
- Silicone implants come in a big selection of shapes and sizes.
- Saline implants are a safer choice if you’re concerned about the risk of rupture.
- New saline implants use saline to create more realistic-looking breasts that don’t ripple as much as regular saline implants.
- Some clients prefer using implants made from a natural material.
- If you’re allergic to silicone, saline implants are the only option.
Implant Shape: Round or Teardrop?
You should choose the shape of your implant during the consultation with our surgeon. Some women prefer the teardrop shape because it mimics the natural shape of the breast. Some doctors, however, say that teardrop shapes tend to move out of position more easily. This can lead to further surgeries to reposition the implant.
Round implants continue to be very popular. They’re also the best choice if you’re going up several cup sizes. Round implants give fullness at the top of the bustline, and many women like that look.
Breast implants are sized in cubic centimeters or cc. The measurement refers to the amount of silicone or saline in each one. Implant sizes range from 120 cc to 800 cc. For most women, the smaller size range provides the most natural enhancement to their figures.
In breast implant terms, “profile” refers to how far out your new breasts stick out from your chest. Implants can have a moderate, high or ultra-high profile. This is another important consideration after size.
Selecting the right profile determines how your new breasts will look on your body. The best way to see the difference is to try them on during your surgery consultation.
Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
- Any woman who feels self-conscious about her small breasts.
- Anyone who’s in good health and at a stable weight.
- Women who have lost their breasts to medical illness or trauma.
- Women with unevenly sized breasts.
- Anyone who is not currently breastfeeding.
Will Breast Augmentation Restore the Lift in Your Bust?
If your breasts are sagging, breast augmentation won’t restore them to their youthful position high on your chest. Breast augmentation only makes them larger.
If you have sagging breasts, you should ask about a breast lift. This procedure returns your breasts to their former position high on your chest. You can combine both procedures. If you want lift and volume, ask our surgeon about adding a breast lift to your breast augmentation.
What Happens During Breast Augmentation Surgery?
Here’s what to expect from your surgery.
Before the Procedure
Always follow our surgeon’s instructions on preparing for surgery. You should line up a ride home the day of surgery and make other plans for your recovery. Do this ahead of time to reduce your stress before and after your procedure.
You will have your surgery done under anesthesia. This is generally an outpatient procedure, so you will not require an overnight hospital stay.
Most women can return to work after just days. On average, it takes weeks for your body to recover. Give your body time to recover. Follow our doctor’s instructions for home care, special bras and follow-up appointments.
When Will You See Your Results?
You’ll notice your new, larger breasts immediately after the surgery. The full results can be seen after a total recovery.
How Long Will Your Results Last?
The results for Breast Augmentation are designed to be long-lasting. Your implants should last for years. At a certain point down the road, you can decide if you want to replace or remove them.
