Breast Augmentation Q&A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation enhances the shape, size, and contours of the breasts. With multiple types of implants and fat grafting procedures, Dr. Elnekaveh can build and shape your ideal breasts at Dr. Brandon Plastic Surgery.

Why might I want breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation may be right for you if you’re concerned about:

  • A small breast size
  • Uneven or asymmetrical breasts
  • Loss of breast volume due to pregnancy or weight loss
  • Sagging or drooping breasts
  • Desire for fuller and more proportionate breasts
  • Correcting congenital breast abnormalities
  • Enhancing self-confidence and body image
  • Reconstructing breasts after a mastectomy
  • Improving the fit of clothing and swimwear

Fuller breasts may also complement your figure for a more balanced appearance.

Are there different types of breast augmentation implants?

Dr. Elnekaveh offers multiple breast implant options for augmentation surgery, including:

Saline implants

Dr. Elnekaveh inserts saline implants through an incision before filling them, allowing for a smaller, more discreet incision. They also carry less risk if they rupture.

Silicone implants

Silicone implants contain gel materials that look and feel more natural than saline implants. They come in different shapes and textures to create the exact projection and appearance desired. However, if they rupture, the gel can leak out.

Fat grafting

Fat grafting involves using fat from one area of your body to enhance the breasts. The benefit is a natural look and feel without implants, but the increase in size may be limited. You may also need multiple sessions to achieve your desired results.

How should I prepare for breast augmentation?

Taking a few preparatory steps before breast augmentation encourages a successful procedure and recovery. Before surgery:

  • Schedule a consultation with Dr. Elnekaveh
  • Undergo a medical evaluation to assess your overall health
  • Work with Dr. Elnekaveh to select the type, size, and shape of breast implants
  • Follow pre-op instructions provided by Dr. Elnekaveh
  • Quit smoking and discontinue certain medications as advised
  • Arrange for a responsible adult to accompany you on the day of surgery
  • Prepare for post-op care and recovery, including assistance with daily tasks
  • Set up a clean, comfortable recovery space at home
  • Maintain a healthy diet and stay well-hydrated 
  • Dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing on the day of the surgery
  • Schedule and attend all necessary follow-up appointments with Dr. Elnekaveh

It’s also important to prioritize rest and minimize stress in the days leading up to the surgery.

How much recovery time can I expect after breast augmentation?

The initial discomfort and swelling from breast augmentation typically subside within a week, allowing most patients to return to their nonstrenuous daily activities. Full recovery can take a few months.
