It’s Time to Love Your Breasts

General background

Why Breast Augmentation?

In our society, a woman’s breasts are symbolic of her femininity—and when you’re unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, your self-esteem often suffers. This can often greatly affect your happiness. Whether you’re interested in an increase in size or equalization of size, there are a number of options we offer to meet your needs.

Dr. G can give you the breasts you want—whether that means larger, more youthful, more proportional, or lifted. During your personal consultation, Dr. G will listen carefully to what you would like to accomplish and discuss his recommendations with you to help determine the best breast augmentation plan for your specific goals.

Types of Breast Implants

Saline Implants

Round, saline-filled breast implants are placed inside the body first and then filled with the saline(salt water) solution. Their outer shell is made of silicone to hold in the saline solution. Because the solution is added after the implants have been inserted, they require a smaller incision. Saline breast implants come in a range of sizes to match your preference.

A newer option for patients who still prefer a saline breast implant is the Ideal Implant®, which is classified as a “structured saline-filled breast implant”. Despite the changes in design and materials, it remains a saline implant, and some of the same kinds of problems that befall regular saline implants—such as rippling and rupture—can still occur.

Silicone Implants

Silicone gel implants have been available in the U.S. since 2006. Dr. G has vast experience using all forms of silicone gel-filled implants. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel and wrapped in a silicone case. They provide incredibly natural-looking results, as their soft appearance reflects what real breast tissue looks like. They come in a round or teardrop shape.

Gummy Bear Implants

Dr. G was one of the early adopters of the newer silicone gel implants, which include the cohesive or “form-stable” gummy bear implants. These implants are named because their consistency feels like gummy bear candy, allowing them to fit better to the muscle and feel naturally soft. Gummy bear silicone gel-filled implants come in a round or teardrop shape.

Patient Care that Sets Us Apart

There is so much that we do that sets us apart from other aesthetic practices. First of all, you can contact us 24/7—even before you sign up. We are very family-focused and incorporate Zoom into pre-op/post-ops if your significant other can’t be there. If you would like, we speak to your family about your procedure (even coming up with talking points for the kids), and we can put together presentations for your partner as well, if needed. In addition, we provide a list of everything you’ll need for preparation and recovery, as well as a vetted Amazon store where you can access all of these items. Our passion is making patients happy, and we want you to have an exceptional experience with us. 

Fat Transfer Augmentation

For patients who want breast augmentation but would prefer to avoid the use of breast implants and achieve a more modest increase in size, Dr. G can perform a fat transfer. In this procedure, your own fat is used to provide volume to subtly enhance breast size. If this sounds like a better option for you, Dr. G can discuss this with you during your consultation. Together you will decide the best breast augmentation procedure for your personal goals.

What to Expect During Breast Augmentation 

Before your surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. G. During this consultation, he will go over many important things with you, including the best size, shape, and type of implant for you; what type of incision will be used (inframammary, periareolar, transaxillary, etc.), and his technique for implant placement. 

Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure performed with the patient under general anesthesia. It typically takes 1-2 hours. Dr. G will carefully create the incisions that were decided upon and discussed during your consultation. 

He will then insert the implants in the way he explained to you, and will close the incisions. You will be taken to a recovery area for a little while, and you will be fitted with a surgical bra to support your breasts and decrease swelling during recovery.

Recovery and Results

You will need assistance for 24 hours after your breast augmentation, and we recommend taking multiple short walks around your home daily to help with circulation. Avoid showering for the first 24 hours after surgery. You will need to wear the surgical bra for approximately one week, and may then change to a soft bra with no underwire. 

Patients usually feel ready to go back to work within 1-2 weeks, at which point the bruising and swelling should be mostly subsided. At six weeks, most patients can carefully return to exercise. 

At one month, your new breasts should be nearly finalized, with swelling subsides, tissues healed, and scars fading. Final recovery at three months is typical.
