An Introduction to Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery enhances both your breast size and shape.

The Purpose of Breast Augmentation

  • Increased fullness and projection of the breasts
  • Improved balance of a woman’s figure
  • Enhanced self-esteem and self-image
  • Enhanced appearance of the breasts following major life events including pregnancy and weight loss
  • Restored breast appearance through reconstruction after a mastectomy

Breast Aug, Breast Lift or Both?

Breast surgery reshapes the breast by enhancing the breast volume with implants. Breast augmentation alone will not correct for sagging breast tissue as a Breast implant will only “fill your breast up” and not “lift them up”. With an implant alone, your breast look just like they do now, just larger and fuller. Therefore, many women choose to undergo a breast lift procedure in addition to an augmentation. A breast lift will tighten up the skin and “lift the breast up” creating a prettier perkier lifted look. A breast lift in combination with saline or silicone implants can lift sagging breasts while improving the shape and increasing breast volume. Most who undergo a lift prefer both the lift and the augmentation together as the addition of the implant to the lift gives the breast the nice fullness in the upper pole.

Important things to Know about Breast Augmentation

Depending on the anatomy of the woman and the desired outcomes (size, projection, and shape), the surgeon and patient will discuss and choose the most appropriate surgical procedure. The Food and Drug Administration requires that women be at least eighteen years old for saline implants and at least twenty two years old for silicone implants, as the breasts can develop until a woman is in her late teens or early twenties.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter she shape and size of the breast tissue. Therefore, if a women plans to become pregnant within the next year, it is recommended that she avoid having breast augmentation until after she completes her last pregnancy. In addition, for childbearing women, it is recommended that she wait three to six months from the time she ceases breastfeeding until she undergo breast surgery.

What to expect during the Breast Augmentation Consultation

Prior to any procedure, Dr. Ennis will meet personally with the patient to get to understand their goals and desires.

During your consultation, you will view before and after photos to help identify the size, shape and appearance you desire. You will have the opportunity to “try on” different breast implants and sizes using the Vectra XT imaging system. This modern technology gives you a 3 dimensional visual indication of the expected surgical outcomes.

This way, you will have a more realistic expectation of how your implant will enhance your appearance, after the breasts are healed and you are recovered. As you select the size and shape of your breast implants you can see exactly how they will look on your own body. You can change them out for different sizes and “try on” as many as you need to help you make a confident decision.

Another important part of the breast augmentation consultation is discussing incision approaches and determining which technique is most appropriate. In addition, the surgeon will discuss implant types and determine which will best fit the desired results.

The surgeon will be able to answer all of your question and concerns and he will share his clinical expertise to help make the best choice for your desired outcomes. Dr. Ennis values the consultation, analyzing the anatomy in order to make the most appropriate selection for breast implant.

3 Main Steps of a the Breast Augmentation Procedure Incision

1. Preparing for the implant

Once the incision is created, the surgeon creates an implant pocket for which to insert the implant. The implant pocket is made either under or over the chest muscle and behind the breast tissue. The breast tissue and skin are stretched to create this pocket and accommodate the new implant.

2. Placing the implant

Next, the surgeon places the implant into the pocket, ensuring it is positioned properly for optimum shape and contour. Once the implant is in place, the surgeon evaluates the size, symmetry and shape of the breasts. Sometimes the patient is raised to the sitting position to evaluate the breast appearance directly.

3. Closing to minimize scarring

Once the surgeon is satisfied with the breast shape and symmetry, the incisions are closed with hidden sutures. The surgeon will take great care to create sutures that result in minimal scarring.

Types of Incisions for Breast Augmentation

Currently, there are three main approaches to the procedure:

Periareolar incision

The perioareolar incision is performed through an incision on the lower border of the areola. The areola is the darker skin that surrounds the nipple. Once the incision is made, the surgeon works through the fat and breast tissues to reach the chest muscle and create an implant pocket. This technique will leave a visible scar on direct view of the breast, but it typically fades and is well hidden between the border of the darker areola and the breast skin.

Inframammary incision

The perioareolar incision is performed through an incision on the lower border of the areola. The areola is the darker skin that surrounds the nipple. Once the incision is made, the surgeon works through the fat and breast tissues to reach the chest muscle and create an implant pocket. This technique will leave a visible scar on direct view of the breast, but it typically fades and is well hidden between the border of the darker areola and the breast skin.

Transaxillary incision

The tranxaxillary incision is made through a skin crease in the underarm. The surgeon then creates an endoscopic tunnel from the underarm to the chest, in order to create an implant pocket. The implant is inserted through the underarm and into the implant pocket. This approach leaves a scar in the underarm, which is typically well hidden after healing.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

Breast augmentation surgery takes approximately one to two hours to complete. It may take slightly longer if also undergoing a breast lift at the same time. Breast augmentation is typically performed under general anesthesia in order to ensure patient comfort. After the surgeon has completed the augmentation, the surgical incisions are closed with sutures or tape. The breasts are wrapped in a gauze bandage to protect and support the breasts. Sometimes drainage tubes may be placed for a few days to allow for drainage of the surgical site. Many women wear a surgical bra during the healing phase.

There will likely be some swelling in the area, which will decrease rapidly over several weeks following surgery. Because the breast tissue has been stretched, pain should be expected. However, surgical pain can be easily controlled with prescription or over the counter pain medications. Most often, pain is experienced within the first two days following surgery but reduces each day thereafter.

Most women are able to go home to recover within a few hours after surgery. Patient’s are given educational instruction on the proper care of the breasts, medications, and follow up instructions. After surgery, it is important to rest for a few days in order to allow for proper healing. Heavy lifting should be avoided for four to six weeks. Soreness and swelling should be expected for the first few weeks. Patients are permitted to return to most of their work and household activities within one week.
