Breast Augmentation Overview
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to increase the size or change the shape of the breasts. It is also called augmentation mammoplasty, a breast job, or a ‘boob job’. The procedure involves either transferring fat to the breasts or inserting silicone or saline implants under the breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast augmentation is most commonly used to enlarge the breasts, correct asymmetry, and restore breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy.
Breast Implants Options in Miami
Breast implants can vary depending on your preferred size, shape, texture, and appearance. These are some of the options you can choose from for your breast augmentation:
Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation Miami
There may be some postoperative pain, but many of our breast augmentation Miami patients say it lasts only three to four days following their procedure. All pain is controlled using surgeon-prescribed oral medication.
Miami Plastic Surgeon Dr. Stephan Baker utilizes the periareolar or breast fold incision to place most implants. This technique limits the scar to be just around the colored transition between the areola and the skin or hidden in the breast fold. In most cases, the scarring is not visible. Most scarring is likely to fade over time.
Some of our patients report decreased sensitivity in their nipples for a few weeks after their surgery, but nipple sensation will eventually return. Only patients with anatomically oversized breast implants that stretch their sensory nerves may have long-term decreased nipple sensation.
If the breast implant is suitably sized, it is unlikely to have any interference with milk production. Some women are unable to breastfeed regardless of implants. Also, due to skin laxity concerns, some women wait until after they have children to undergo breast augmentation to reduce the possibility of breast sagging later in life.
Most studies support the fact that breast implants, especially when placed behind the pectoral muscle, have little effect on the results of a mammogram. It is important to let your doctor know if you have breast implants when going in for a mammogram to ensure you have a mammographer who is experienced with breast implants. Patients with a family history of breast cancer should undergo a mammogram before breast augmentation surgery. Women over the age of 40 (with or without breast implants) should have routine mammograms.
There is no scientific evidence to suggest that breast implants cause breast cancer. Women with implants have the same chance of developing cancer as the general population (around 10 percent). Patients with a family history of breast cancer or severe fibrocystic breast disease might consider an evaluation by a breast oncologist before augmentation.
Breast asymmetry occurs when breasts are uneven when one is larger than the other or has a different shape. Breast asymmetry is common and can present itself as subtle or significant differences. Utilizing two differently sized implants can help improve breast asymmetry but it is important to remember that no two breasts are ever exactly the same.
Many women who opt for breast augmentation do so after having children, as pregnancy can drastically alter the body. If you’re unhappy with the way your body looks after pregnancy, the Mommy Makeover can help enhance your body contour, appearance, and confidence. The makeover focuses on multiple areas in one procedure including abdominal surgery, breast surgery, and liposuction to remove excess fat. Breast lift is also a popular breast enhancement procedure, often done hand-in-hand with the augmentation.
Risks and Side Effects
Every surgery carries some risk of complications. With breast augmentation, side effects could include:
- Breast pain
- Wrinkled or rippled skin at the site of the implant
- Accumulation of fluid around the implant
- Ruptured or leaking implants
- Change in position of the implant
- Changes in breast sensation
