The augmentation of breasts has been a familiar and popular cosmetic procedure for some time. Many people may know them as “breast implants.” Our augmentation procedures allow women to change the size and shape of their breasts. While commonly associated with purely cosmetic reasons, breast augmentation is often used to replace breasts after a mastectomy.
When women want to change the size or shape of their breasts, this procedure is often their best course of action. While every case is different, and you will meet with our staff one on one to discuss your overall goals, the most common reason women seek out breast augmentation include:
• Balance the proportions of their body
• Increase total breast volume
• Increase breast size
• Restore breast volume after pregnancy, which can cause some loss.
• Breast reconstruction after the loss as the result of surgery or an accident
• Boost overall confidence.
Assuming a patient is free from infections or health problems, this procedure is recommended for those over the age of 20.
Breast augmentation is not the same as a breast lift, which can fix this condition. A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is another procedure we offer at Victoria Plastic Surgery Center.
There are basically two ways doctors can augment the size and volume of breasts: Silicone Breast Implants and Saline Breast Implants. Both solutions are FDA approved and have been used for years. They are, however, slightly different. The best choice for you will be part of the discussion when you come in for a consultation.
A saline breast implant is a silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution, also known as saltwater. Of the two options, this implant has a smaller risk of complications since the saline is sterile. If the implants for some reason are punctured or rupture, there are less medical problems.
A silicone breast implant is filled with silicone, a plastic gel. While their feel is much more natural, there is a high risk of infection and other medical complications if a leak develops.
The size of a breast implant, regardless of type, is entirely customizable to suit the needs of the patient.
The cost of this procedure varies depending on exact nature of it. The price will be discussed with our staff once we establish what your overall goals are. The breast augmentation itself takes no more than 2 hours and uses only local anesthesia. The procedure does involve an incision, but in many cases, it will be in a nonvisible area.
