What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of a person’s breasts. It typically involves the use of implants—either saline or silicone— to increase breast volume, improve symmetry, and achieve a more proportionate breast contour.

This procedure is recommended for people who want to restore fullness to their breasts after weight changes, pregnancy, or aging. It can also help those looking to increase their breast size for aesthetic reasons. Ashpole Plastic Surgery offers personalized consultations to ensure that each patient’s aesthetic goals are met with precision and care.

What Breast Augmentation Can Achieve

Breast augmentation is a safe and effective way to alter the size, shape, or positioning of your breasts. With over 200,000 breast augmentation surgeries performed every year, it’s easy to understand the popularity of this procedure.

Patients seeking breast augmentation can expect to achieve:

  • Increased breast size
  • Improved breast shape
  • Improved body proportion
  • More symmetrical breasts
  • Improved appearance

Many patients choose to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift, liposuction, or mommy makeover. During your consultation, Dr. Ashpole will outline your options, explain the techniques involved, and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Types of Implants

At Ashpole Plastic Surgery, patients have access to a broad selection of implant options to meet their unique needs.

Silicone Gel Implants

Silicone implants are composed of silicone gel. The general consensus is that silicone breast implants closely resemble and have a similar texture to natural breasts.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants are designed to be filled with sterile salt water. Typically, these implants are inserted into the breast empty and then filled once they are in position.

Textured Breast Implants

Textured implants have a rough shell that feels like soft sandpaper. This texture helps the implant stick to the breast tissue and stay in place.

Smooth Breast Implants

Implants with a smooth surface do not adhere to the adjacent body tissue and typically have the ability to move freely within the breast.

During your consultation, Dr. Ashpole will walk you through your options to help you decide on the best implant choice for your anatomy and aesthetic preferences.

Preparing For Surgery

There are several key steps patients will need to take before undergoing breast augmentation surgery. To start, you will have a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Ashpole. During this appointment, our team will review your medical history and aesthetic goals. It’s essential to be open and honest during this consultation to allow Dr. Ashpole to customize the procedure to your needs.

Depending on your health status, we may request testing to ensure surgery is a safe choice for you. If you’re a good candidate for the procedure, we’ll outline how to prepare in the days leading up to your surgery. These instructions will cover fasting, medication adjustments, and other pre-surgical requirements.

Additionally, we’ll ask you to arrange for someone to pick you up after your procedure and care for you on the first 1-2 nights post-surgery. Dr. Ashpole and his team will give you detailed post-operative care instructions, including wound care, activity restrictions, and signs of complications to monitor.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

What does breast augmentation do?

Breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of the breasts. This is achieved by inserting implants or by transferring fat from another part of the body. This procedure can increase fullness, improve symmetry, and restore breast volume that’s been lost over time.

Breast implants vs. breast augmentation

Breast implants refer specifically to the silicone or saline inserts used in breast surgeries to enhance size and shape. Breast augmentation, on the other hand, is the surgical procedure that involves placing these implants under breast tissue for cosmetic enhancement.

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation?

The best candidates for breast augmentation procedures are healthy, non-smoking individuals who have realistic expectations. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss your medical history to ensure surgery is a safe option for you.

What is recovery like for breast augmentation?

Our breast augmentation surgeries are performed under general anesthesia as outpatient procedures. Immediately after surgery, patients will likely experience some discomfort, bruising, and inflammation, but this can be controlled with medication. Patients can typically return to work after one week. However, they’ll need to refrain from exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks.

What are the risks of breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation carries inherent risks, including infection, capsular contracture where the scar tissue tightens around the implant, and the possibility of implant leakage or rupture. Other concerns include changes in nipple and breast sensation, displacement of the implant, and post-surgical asymmetry. Dr. Ashpole will walk you through potential risks during your initial consultation and address any concerns you may have.

How long does a breast augmentation last?

Breast augmentation results can last 10-20 years, although implants are not lifetime devices. The longevity of your results will vary based on the type of implant, your lifestyle, and your anatomy. We recommend scheduling periodic evaluations with Dr. Ashpole to ensure the safety and longevity of your implants.

Which breast implants are best?

The best implants for you will depend on your body type, aesthetic goals, and personal preferences. Silicone implants are popular for their natural feel, while saline implants are often chosen for their versatility. Dr. Ashpole will give you detailed guidance during your consultation to help you choose the type of implant that best suits your specific needs.
