Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery offers many benefits and can:
- Increase breast fullness and projection
- Restore lost volume due to pregnancy, weight reduction, or aging
- Create a more rounded breast shape
- Correct breast asymmetry
- Improve the overall balance of your figure
- Enhance your self-confidence
- Help you look your best in clothing and swimwear
For all that breast augmentation can achieve, it will not significantly elevate the position of your breasts. If you are looking to correct sagging for a more youthful and supported look, breast lift surgery may be ideal. Patients frequently undergo both procedures at the same time to gain volume and lift.
Ideal Breast Augmentation Candidates
There are age requirements for breast augmentation. FDA regulations state that patients must be at least 18 years old for saline implants and at least 22 years old for silicone implants. In addition to meeting these prerequisites, ideal breast enhancement candidates:
- Are in good general health
- Possess realistic expectations and a positive outlook
- Are willing to avoid smoking and drinking shortly before and after surgery
- Are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have the ability to rest and follow all postoperative instructions during recovery
You are likely a great candidate for breast augmentation if you meet these guidelines. However, the best way to know if the procedure is right for you is to arrange a consultation with Dr. Avashia.
During your visit, Dr. Avashia will review your medical history, listen to your goals, and determine if the procedure can provide the outcome you desire. He values transparency and will have an open discussion regarding your breast enhancement options.
Customizing Your Breast Augmentation
Dr. Avashia believes your surgical plan should be as unique as you are. He will tailor your breast augmentation to ensure the results align with your lifestyle, body type, and preferences.
Some of the options available to you include:
- Implant type
- Implant size
- Implant shape
- Implant profile
- Implant placement
- Incision placement
What to Expect During Your Procedure
Breast augmentation is typically an outpatient procedure performed under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Procedural steps vary depending on several factors, including the desired results, your anatomy, and patient-surgeon preference.
Dr. Avashia will follow the surgical plan discussed in your consultation. He will start by creating incisions in inconspicuous areas, such as around the areola or within the breast crease. After making the incisions, he will insert the breast implants into pockets either under the chest muscle or over the muscle. Once he has positioned the implants, he will close the incisions.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
You will be monitored for an hour or so after your surgery before being discharged. Your breasts will be wrapped in dressings and a supportive garment. Discomfort is most noticeable in the first few days, though it can be easily managed with pain medication.
Aftercare is relatively easy and straightforward. You will receive detailed postoperative instructions as well as a complete list of approved and restricted activities. It is important to adhere to these instructions and attend your follow-up appointments with Dr. Avashia.
Breast Augmentation Results
While breast augmentation immediately increases breast size, the final outcome will not be apparent for at least several weeks. During this time, post-procedural swelling will begin to subside and your skin will stretch to accommodate the implants. Dr. Avashia takes every precaution to minimize scarring after surgery and will explain what you can do to fade these discreet marks.
In general, breast augmentation has a high patient satisfaction rate. Most women are very pleased with their results. It is safe to expect that you will enjoy the outcome of your procedure for many years to come. If you ever wish to change the appearance of your breasts after augmentation, breast revision is available to you.
