What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves placing implants in the breasts to increase their size and/or improve their shape. There are two types of implants that can be used for breast augmentation: saline and silicone. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, while silicone implants are filled with soft, pliable silicone gel. 

During the procedure, incisions are made in either the breast fold or around the areola. The implants are then placed in pockets either above or below the chest muscle.

After surgery, patients may experience some swelling and bruising for several weeks as well as discomfort that can last up to several days. Patients should plan on taking at least a week off from work or other activities. Patients should also wear a support garment for several weeks to help with healing and minimize swelling.

Although breast augmentation can provide beautiful results, there are risks associated with the procedure. These include infection, bleeding, asymmetry, scarring and implant rupture.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

There are many benefits that can be achieved with breast augmentation. Some of the most common reasons why women choose to have the procedure include: 

  • Increased self-confidence 
  • Improved symmetry 
  • Correction of uneven breasts 
  • Restoration of volume after pregnancy or weight loss 
  • Achieving a more feminine figure 

Dr will work with you to help you achieve your desired results. He will take into consideration your unique anatomy as well as your aesthetic goals to help you select the right type and size of implant for your needs. 

Types of Incisions Used for Breast Augmentation 

There are four types of incisions that can be used for breast augmentation: inframammary, periareolar, transaxillary, and transumbilical. The type of incision that is best for you will be determined based on your individual anatomy and desired results. The most common type of incision used by Dr is the inframammary incision, which is made in the crease underneath the breast. 

The periareolar incision is made around the areola, or dark area surrounding the nipple. This can be a good option for certain patients because it hides well in the natural pigmentation and usually results in little scarring. The transaxillary incision is made in the armpit, and the transumbilical incision is placed in the navel. These approaches are less frequently used and can be more likely to result in visible scarring.


The advantages of breast augmentation surgery include an increase in confidence due to improved appearance, improved symmetry between breasts, and the ability to achieve a more balanced body shape. The recovery time for breast augmentation is typically two weeks, although this may vary from patient to patient. During that time, it’s important to keep follow-up appointments with your surgeon and practice any post-operative instructions provided by Dr.
