RESTORE YOUR CONFIDENCE AND FEMININE ALLURE WITH A NATURAL APPEARANCE AND ENHANCEMENT
Breast Augmentation is one of the most sought-after plastic surgery procedures performed in Orange County and nationwide. This procedure is also referred to as a breast aug, or a “boob job”, and involves placing a silicone or saline implant either behind the breast tissue or under the breast muscle in order to enlarge the breast.
Breast Augmentation Options
You may be a good candidate for a breast augmentation if you are in general good health and feel your breasts are too small, have trouble fitting into a bra, or if weight loss or pregnancy has changed the size or shape of your breasts. A breast augmentation may also help create better symmetry if your breasts are naturally different shapes or sizes.
This is a question that you and Dr. Richland will answer together. He will take into account your wishes and desires as well as your specific anatomy. Each implant has a specific “base width” as well as “projection”. By measuring your breast “base width”, a range of sizes for implants can be selected. The goal will be to use an implant that fits your body and proportions to give you a good long-term result.
A breast lift may be beneficial for patients who feel their breasts are too low or “droopy”. Specifically, you may be a good candidate for a combined augmentation and mastopexy if your breast tissue is too low on your chest wall or if your nipples are below your breast creases.
In general, your breastfeeding will be about the same as before the surgery, but some patients may have decreased ability to breastfeed after. There is a higher risk of decreased ability to breastfeed through the periareolar incision.
Generally, your nipple sensation is not significantly affected by breast augmentation. You may experience a short-term decrease in sensation that usually subsides over the next few months. In some rare instances, you may have a decrease in sensation, but this is more common when a periareolar incision is used.
Implants do not need to be changed out unless there are any issues. Because of this, breast implants may last much longer than ten years but may also last less than ten years if you are experiencing pain, asymmetry, capsular contracture, or any other issues.
