About Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation involves the surgical placement of breast implants to improve the size and shape of natural breasts. This cosmetic procedure can:

  • Enhance Breast Size
  • Define Breast Shape
  • Increase Fullness
  • Improve Body Proportions
  • Boost Self Confidence

Am I A Candidate?

Most women are suitable candidates for breast enhancement surgery. Typically, if you are in good health and have finished developing, you can be eligible for implants. Many candidates are dissatisfied with their natural breasts’ size and shape or want to improve body proportions and symmetry.

Dr. Reyna will also go through a personalized evaluation with you to determine if augmentation surgery is the right choice for you. During your visit with Dr. Reyna you will have a detailed conversation and discussion, during which Dr. Reyna determine your overall health and body image goals while developing a plan to achieve those goals with plastic surgery.

Available Implant Types

Depending on your cosmetic goals and medical needs, you have two options for breast implants.

Silicone Implants – Many women choose silicone breast implants because they feel that silicone implants look and feel more like natural breast tissue. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel to a determined size before your surgery. These implants are FDA approved and available to women 22 years old and older.

Saline Implants – Saline implants are placed inside the body empty and then filled with a sterile saline solution during surgery. Saline implants are also FDA approved and available to women over 18.

About the Incision

Surgical incisions are used in order to place the implants during a breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Reyna will discuss each of your options during your consultation. The two most common incisions are periareolar and inframmary. The option chosen is based on your needs, body composition, type of implant, and more:

Periareolar – The periarolar incisions are placed along the edge of the areola around the nipple. This type of scar is more easily camouflaged by the darker color of the nipple but may affect sensitivity, increase capsular contracture rate, and may impact breastfeeding later in life.

Inframammary – The inframammary incisions are placed in the breast fold. The incision scars are also easily camouflaged in the breast fold. This incision may affect sensitivity, but does not pose the same risk to potential breastfeeding.

Implant Placement

During your surgery, Dr. Reyna will place the breast implants either under the pectoral muscle, subpectoral, or over the muscle, subglandular. Implant placement is decided based on several factors, including your existing breast tissue and lifestyle.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Details

Breast augmentation surgery is typically an outpatient procedure performed with patients under general anesthesia. The operation takes one to two hours to complete.

During the procedure, Dr. Reyna will make a small incision and create a space for the implant either under the breast tissue or pectoral muscle. He will then place the implant within the “pocket” in order to create the optimal enhancement of your shape.

The incisions are closed and surgical bandages or glue are placed over the incisions for protection.

Recovery After Breast Implants

After the procedure, you will experience mild to moderate discomfort, swelling, and bruising. These symptoms should last one to two weeks.

It is recommended for patients to sleep on their back and elevate their upper body in order to minimize discomfort and excess swelling. Most patients are able to return to work one week after surgery, but patients should avoid heavy lifting for at least four weeks.
