What Does Breast Augmentation Achieve?

Breast augmentation, also called Augmentation Mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to increase breast size, as well as improve shape, symmetry, and overall appearance.

Breast augmentation can benefit women who are unhappy with the shape or size of their breasts. This may include women who have had children, breastfed, lost significant weight, or had a mastectomy procedure. Individuals who were simply never satisfied with their natural breast size can also elevate their self confidence through breast augmentation.

Breast Implants – The Procedure

At the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Arlington Heights, breast augmentation is commonly performed by placing implants underneath breast tissue. Breast implants can be inserted above or below the chest muscle via three different types of incisions.

Incisions for breast augmentation can be placed in one of three locations:

  • Beneath the breast at the crease
  • At the nipple, where the skin meets the areola
  • Under the armpit

The chosen location for the incisions will depend on a variety of factors. Your plastic surgeon will discuss the options with you prior to surgery.

No matter which incision placement you choose, scarring is minimal and rarely clearly visible. Scars from this surgery will also fade over time.

Types of Breast Implants

Before your procedure, you will get to choose between two types of breast implants. These include saline and silicone implants. Both varieties come in many different shapes and sizes. The biggest differences between these implants are the materials and textures.

Silicone implants are filled with gel. These implants have a “gummy bear” consistency and create a highly realistic feel and texture.

Saline implants contain salt water instead of gel. Unlike silicone implants, they’re filled during surgery after they’re placed beneath the breast tissue. This allows for smaller incisions than those made for silicone implants.

Which Is Better?

Choosing between silicone and saline implants is a matter of deciding which option will best help you achieve your desired results. While saline implants often require smaller incisions, silicone implants offer a more natural feel. Additionally, due to the consistency of “gummy bear” implants, the gel won’t leak out if an implant casing tears.

Your cosmetic surgeon will help you decide on the best type of implant for you. At the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, we evaluate your physical health and personal preferences before making any decisions.

A Natural Alternative – Breast Fat Transfer in Arlington Heights, IL

Breast fat transfer surgery, or fat injection, is another form of breast augmentation.

Fat transfer breast augmentation involves taking fat cells from one area of the body and moving them to the breast tissue. This adds volume and can also be used to improve symmetry.

Fat transfer surgery is a great option for women who want to increase their breast size without getting implants. This procedure is a natural alternative that can benefit women who are allergic to materials used in implants, such as silicone.

Is Breast Augmentation Safe?

Many patients have asked, Is breast augmentation safe? While there are always risks with any surgical procedure, our team has years of experience performing all types of cosmetic surgeries.

Breast implants have been around since the 1960s, and over time they have become more and more effective.

Recovery

Most patients recover from breast augmentation within 4-6 weeks. After the procedure, a surgical bra is worn to support your breasts as they heal. You might also receive small drainage tubes that are strategically placed to help reduce fluid buildup in the treatment area. These tubes are typically removed within 1-3 weeks.

Swelling, bruising, and tenderness is normal and can last up to 5 weeks. Depending on your job, you should be able to return to work 1-2 weeks after surgery. You will not be able to take part in strenuous activity or lift anything heavy until you have fully recovered.

How Long Do Results Last?

Results after your breast augmentation surgery should last for the rest of your life. On occasion, injuries or other procedures may disrupt the placement of implants, in which case a revision surgery can be performed.

Additionally, breast implant revision surgery may become necessary if you ever decide you want to change the size of their implants. This type of procedure is rarely performed to correct issues with the implants themselves.

Good Candidates

Good candidates for breast augmentation include:

  • Patients who have naturally small or deflated breasts
  • Patients with asymmetrical breasts
  • Patients with sagging breasts caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding, or age
  • Patients who have lost breast volume after weight loss, pregnancy, and/or breastfeeding
  • Patients who have suffered an injury to breast tissue
  • Patients who have undergone a mastectomy or double mastectomy
  • Patients who are done having children and breastfeeding
  • Patients who are in good general health
  • Patients who do not smoke

If you’re unsure whether you’re a good candidate for breast augmentation, contact our plastic surgery professionals in Arlington Heights.

Can I Breastfeed After Getting Breast Implants?

It is recommended that patients be finished having children and breastfeeding before undergoing this type of procedure. This is because pregnancy, weight gain, and breastfeeding can change the shape of the breasts. However, if you do become pregnant, you will still be able to safely breastfeed with implants.

Other Breast Enhancement Procedures

Breast augmentation can be combined with other procedures to further enhance your results. Some examples include breast lift surgery, tummy tuck surgery, or liposuction in Arlington Heights. Breast augmentation is also commonly included in Mommy Makeovers.
