Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?

Every woman has a unique and individual concept of beauty. If you have considered undergoing breast augmentation, you may be hoping to resolve one or more of the following issues:

  • Pregnancy and breastfeeding-related volume loss
    The joys of motherhood are among the most profound and meaningful life events. The physical changes to your body may not please you, and you are considering restoring the look of your pre-baby breasts.
  • Weight loss
    Whether you lost a dramatic amount of weight through diet and exercise or had bariatric surgery, it is natural that when your body loses weight, so do your breasts. After a dramatic weight loss, breast augmentation can allow you to restore the look of your breasts – a very rewarding experience!
  • Uneven breast size
    Every woman has some degree of unevenness in breast size, but in some cases, the difference is noticeable. Breast augmentation can create a balanced size for your breasts.
  • Rebalancing
    Some women want to achieve a more balanced look between their hips and breasts by adding breast volume with a custom breast augmentation surgery.
  • It's time for a new look
    Your body is yours to enhance, and if you may want to create a new look for your figure by bringing plump, rounded volume to your breasts.
  • Smaller breasts
    Smaller breasts are a beautiful feature, but many women with smaller breasts wish they were larger. In those cases, breast augmentation can add the volume you have always wanted, appearing plump, natural, and round.
  • Cleavage
    Visible cleavage is an attractive feature, and if you are dreaming of having breasts with lovely cleavage, breast augmentation could be the right approach.

Breast Implant Options

Breast augmentation is performed with either silicone or saline implants.

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are available in a vast range of widths, sizes, and levels of projection. These are the most popular choice for most women, as the silicone gel more closely mimics the weight and bounce of natural breast tissue. Dr. Balinger will work closely with you to select the size, shape, and projection that will meet your expectations and create the look you envision for your body.

Saline Implants

Saline implants are silicone shells filled with a saline solution. The advantages of saline implants include a shorter incision (they are filled after placement), and they are available for women as young as 18. These implants are considered appropriate for women with enough natural breast tissue to cover the implant, or they can be placed below the chest muscle to avoid rippling.

Gummy Bear Implants (Form-Stable)

Some women choose "gummy bear" implants, which are teardrop-shaped to mimic natural breast tissue more closely. The gel within the implant shell retains its form without drifting, and these implants have a slightly firmer feel.

Breast Augmentation FAQ's

What is breast augmentation, and how does it work?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of a woman's breasts. This is typically achieved by placing implants, either saline or silicone, beneath the breast tissue or chest muscle. The procedure can also involve fat transfer for a more natural look. It's essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss the options and determine the best approach for your specific goals.

Who is a suitable candidate for breast augmentation?

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation are generally healthy women who have realistic expectations and a desire to enhance the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts. It's crucial to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon for a thorough evaluation and discussion about your goals to determine if breast augmentation is right for you.

What is the recovery process like after breast augmentation surgery?

Recovery after breast augmentation surgery varies from person to person but typically involves some downtime. Patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for a few days to weeks. It's crucial to follow post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon, which often include avoiding strenuous activities, wearing a supportive bra, and attending follow-up appointments. Most patients can return to their normal routines within a few weeks.

What are the risks and complications associated with breast augmentation?

Like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation carries potential risks and complications. These may include infection, scarring, changes in nipple or breast sensation, implant rupture, or the need for additional surgeries in the future. It's vital to discuss these risks with your surgeon during your consultation and make an informed decision about the procedure. Choosing a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon can help minimize these risks.
