Before & After
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Good candidates for a breast augmentation are those who feel that they have small breasts or those with breast asymmetry or congenital breast shape deformities who wish to achieve fuller breasts. Breast augmentation can help to improve the breast size and breast shape for a firm, round breast appearance. A consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons can help to determine if this procedure is right for you.
What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implants are a long-term breast enlargement solution; however they are not meant to be permanent. Breast implants may last up to 15-20 years without any complications. Some physicians do recommend replacing implants after this time frame and others recommend only replacing an implant if a problem has occurred. It is important to discuss this during your consultation so our surgeons can help guide you to a decision that is right for you.
Some complications that you may experience are:
Leak or Deflation -This condition is fairly simply to diagnose; if you see that your breast looks smaller, then a leak has most likely occurred. We can remove the implant and replace it with a new implant of the original size.
Capsular Contracture – This condition is when the breast feels hard and may be causing discomfort. The scar tissue that forms around the implant thickens and contracts, putting pressure on the implant and causing it to feel firmer. We can remove the scar tissue that has caused the condition and replace it with a new implant of the original size.
Asymmetry or Displacement – This condition is where the implant may shift outward towards the armpit, downward, or inward towards your other breast. Some implant displacement is barely noticeable and will not require any treatment. In other cases, surgery may be needed to move the implant back to where it is supposed to be.
A breast augmentation enhances the shape and size of the breasts with implants. There are many options to take into account before a breast augmentation, including desired breast size, implant type, incision pattern, and placement of implants. Breast enlargement is the most common and popular surgery. The techniques and devices used have been perfected over the years, making this procedure straightforward and safe.
A breast lift is a type of breast enhancement that corrects sagging breasts that may be due to age, childbirth, or significant weight loss. Two types of breast lifts include a periareolar breast lift, where an incision is made around the areola, and a vertical breast lift, where an incision is made along the natural breast contour. With a breast lift, patients can restore their round, firm, and perky breasts.
Overly large breasts may lead to various problems, including neck, back, and shoulder pain, as well as emotional and physical discomfort. A breast reduction immediately eliminates these issues by removing excess breast tissue and skin, which results in natural-looking, balanced breasts.
The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore one or both breasts to near normal shape, appearance, symmetry, and size following mastectomy, lumpectomy, or congenital deformities. Breast reconstruction often involves multiple procedures performed in stages and can either begin at the time of mastectomy or be delayed until a later date.
Between 40-60 percent of men suffer from gynecomastia, which is a condition where excess fatty tissue grows in the chest and may lead to the development of breasts. Depending on the cause of excess fatty breast tissue, a selection of methods can be used to correct this condition.

Additional FAQs About Breast Augmentation
- Saline breast implants
- Silicone breast implants (also known as cohesive gel or silicone gel implant)
Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. In the case that an implant ruptures, the solution can be naturally absorbed by the body without harm. These implants are FDA-approved and feel more firm.
Silicone implants are made up of silicone gel. The gel substance allows these implants to feel similar to your natural breast. Silicone implants are FDA-approved, but it is important to schedule regular checkups with your doctors to ensure proper implant condition.
As opposed to implants, fat transfers use liposuction to transfer fat from another area of the body to enhance your breasts. This procedure provides restrictions for volume increase, but allows for a more natural look and feel.
Depending on the type of implant, your doctor will decide to place the implant on top of or underneath the pectoral muscle. The size of your implant as well as your body type will play a factor in this decision.
