Breast Augmentation - Enhancing with Implants
Schedule a Free Consultation
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance one's breasts. Both silicone and saline breast implants are available to enlarge breast size. Implants can be placed in a variety of positions via a variety of approaches. Implants can be placed in a submuscular or subglandular/subfascial pocket. A submuscular pocket means that the implant is placed beneath breast tissue and chest musculature; a subglandular or subfascial pocket means the implant is placed beneath one's breast tissue but above the level of the chest wall muscles.
During your consultation, Dr. Robey will work with you to help pick out the implants that will match your body frame and preferences. Chest measurements will be taken to figure out which implants would be an ideal fit for you. "Trying on" various implants inside your bra can help determine what sized implants you would benefit from.
SHOULD I GET SALINE OR SILICONE IMPLANTS?
It really depends on your personal preference. In my experience, most patients think that silicone implants feel more like breast tissue as compared to saline implants. Both implants will have an outer shell that is made of silicone; the inner fill of the implant is the difference. Both implants are well studied and safe. Silicone implants cost a little more than saline implants.
WILL BREAST IMPLANTS AFFECT MY ABILITY TO BREAST FEED?
Unlikely, especially with an incision hidden under the breast fold; with this approach, the breast gland is barely manipulated. With a periareolar (around the nipple and areola) incision, it is more likely that ducts of the breast gland could be injured, thereby potentially affecting milk production
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?
Patients will go home the same day of their surgery. Placements of implants under the muscle can make the chest wall sore. Patients can shower immediately and soak in water in about 2 weeks. Walking immediately after surgery is encouraged. Patients can resume exercise as tolerated at about 2 weeks postoperatively. Weight lifting that strains the chest wall musculature is not recommended for six weeks after surgery.
