What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, the addition of volume to breasts, is often considered one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, giving women the opportunity to reshape and resize their breasts when they're dissatisfied with their current look. With the help of implants or fat from the patient's body, this cosmetic treatment improves breast shape, size, and symmetry, creating gorgeous and natural-looking results. Plastic surgeon Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang is skilled in implementing this procedure and performs countless breast augmentations year-round. During your private consultation at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang will listen to your aesthetic desires and concerns and help you work through all of the choices available so together, you can create a treatment plan to achieve your goals.

Implant Options

The right implant will be chosen for your breast augmentation based on your body size and shape, as well as your goal outcome. Breast implants are made in an assortment of shapes, sizes, textures, and profiles, which will all be considered. Dr. Mang will work with you to ensure you select the correct implant options to suit your needs. The most commonly used breast implants are saline or silicone, which are both approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). An important fact is that individuals considering saline implants must be at least 18 years of age while patients must be at least 22 years of age in order to receive treatment with silicone.

Size

To understand the appropriate amount of saline or silicone needed to give you your desired look, Dr. Mang will decipher how much original tissue exists and the size you desire. As he performs the surgery, it is normal for Dr. Mang to temporarily switch out several implants to ensure he gets the best fit for your goal look.

Shape

You can receive implants in either the shape of a teardrop or in a round shape. Both shapes are widely used; however, most patients typically prefer a round shape as it adds a fullness to the upper breast that a majority of patients desire.

Profile

Breast implant profile refers to the projection of the breast, or put simply, what is visible from the side view. Most projections include low to extra high ranges.

Making Your Choices

There is a lot to consider when choosing the right size, shape, and type of implants you want for your breast augmentation. Rest assured, though, that with years of experience, Dr. Mang is here to help. The more information you provide him with your goal results during your consultation, the better he will be able to ensure you make the right choices to get the outcome you're dreaming about.

Can I Get Breast Augmentation?

If you are contemplating breast augmentation surgery, it is important you do it for the right reasons — for yourself rather than someone else. You should be healthy with breasts that are formed. You'll also need to be the required age for your desired implants. If you feel like your breasts look lifeless, you could benefit from this surgery. Moreover, if your breasts have been affected by weight loss or pregnancy, this treatment can bring them back to life with increased volume. If you weight train or have limited native breast mass, this could help you as well.

How is Breast Augmentation Performed?

The incision type and implant location will be decided before your surgery so Dr. Mang will be ready when the surgery comes. During the procedure, an incision will be created, then the implant will be slipped into position. There are two techniques that may be chosen for implant placement: the submuscular placement (under the pec muscle) or behind the breast tissue but over the pectoral muscle. Where to place the breast implant depends on the type and degree of implant enlargement, your body type, and your lifestyle, as well as Dr. Mang's professional opinion. Regardless of incision type, scarring is generally unnoticeable.

What Can I Expect After My Breast Augmentation?

Breast enhancement surgery is an outpatient procedure completed while you are under general anesthesia. Once the incision is made, the chosen implant will be inserted through the incision opening, slipped into the pocket created for it, then fitted into its proper position. After this process, Dr. Mang will carefully secure the incision with skin adhesives or sutures. From there, you will be taken into recovery and carefully monitored and screened before being released to go home. You will need to continue wearing a compression garment to assist with swelling. Within a few days, the swelling and bruising will start to dissipate, and your breasts will start to look and feel normal as they get used to their new position. You will likely be able to return to everyday activities within the first week; however, physical exertion, such as exercise, should be avoided for a couple of months. This surgery results in gorgeous outcomes that look and feel natural, and for most women, it is life-changing, offering a boost in confidence and self-esteem.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your cost for breast augmentation surgery will vary depending on your implant choices and if you are having any other surgeries at the same time. Once your treatment plan is developed, Dr. Mang can talk to you about estimated costs as well as financing options. To make sure your results match your goals and last a long time, it is better to focus on quality over low costs.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your plan might include breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. A breast lift removes loose skin and improves the breasts, while augmentation addresses the size and shape. In your consultation with Dr. Mang, he will listen to your concerns and goals before discussing your treatment options. An augmentation and lift are usually included in a mommy makeover to revitalize the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, be sure to tell Dr. Mang during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after augmentation surgery with the right placement and technique. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, so it is better to wait until your family is complete to get breast augmentation.

Can I have my implants removed?
You might decide that you want to remove or replace your implants. Should this happen, Dr. Mang can perform breast revision surgery. During the revision surgery, your old implants will be either replaced with different implants or removed. If you choose to have your implants removed, you may need to have a breast lift because larger implants can stretch your skin. For any questions or concerns after your breast augmentation surgery, schedule an appointment at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery to discuss your options.

Do implants cause breast cancer?
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is investigating a link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). This is not breast cancer; it is a cancer of the immune cells. According to WHO (the World Health Organization), breast implant-related ALCL is very rare, and if caught early, it is highly treatable. Dr. Mang encourages all patients with breast implants to get regular screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery if you see any concerns, like swelling or other visible changes.
