What Is Breast Augmentation?

Also known as an augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation surgery enhances the volume, fullness, and appearance of your breast by using saline or silicone implants.

For women who also have breast ptosis (sagging of the breasts), Dr. Anu Bajaj may recommend pairing a breast augmentation with a lift, also known as a mastopexy.

This procedure can also be paired with other complementary procedures such as an abdominoplasty or liposuction for further body contouring.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Anu Bajaj and her team treat women with a variety of cosmetic concerns related to their breasts. Women consider breast augmentation for a number of different reasons, and some reasons may include:

  • A desire to enlarge breast size
  • A desire to enhance body proportions
  • Correcting asymmetry
  • Restoring lost volume to the breast after weight loss or breast feeding
  • Revising or improving upon a prior breast surgery
  • Restoring breast shape or treating breast ptosis (sagging)
  • Improving self-confidence or a desire to feel more comfortable in a swimsuit

Candidates for a Breast Augmentation

If you wish to enhance the shape, volume, and fullness of your breasts, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery. Like any surgical procedure, you should be in good health and have the time and resources to achieve optimum recovery.

Implant Options

Breast implants come in a variety of options that supply patients with a custom-tailored procedure plan. These options include type, shape, size, profile, placement, and incision location. During your private breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Bajaj at her Oklahoma location, she will take the time to sit and discuss each option to make sure you are aware of the pros and cons, allowing you to be able to make informed decisions.

Implant Characteristics

You can choose to undergo breast augmentation with saline or silicone-filled implants, which come in a variety of sizes. During your Oklahoma breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Bajaj, you will be assisted in selecting the most suitable option for your specific body type and desired effect.

Saline Implants

With saline implants, an empty shell is implanted into the body, then filled with a sterile saline solution. Saline, or salt water, is non-toxic to the body. The advantage of using saline implants is that they are more cost-effective, the incision site is smaller, and Dr. Bajaj will be able to adjust the volume of your implants during surgery.

Silicone Implants

Unlike saline, silicone implants are pre-filled before insertion. These implants will feel more like your own breasts and are less likely to ripple. Silicone implants are more expensive than saline implants and typically require a slightly longer incision for placement. Silicone implants can be further divided into ‘cohesive gel implants’ and ‘high strength cohesive gel implants’ (commonly referred to as ‘gummy bear implants’). The high-strength cohesive gel implants are more likely to maintain their shape if the outer silicone shell ruptures. Each implant type has its advantages and disadvantages which Dr. Bajaj will discuss in detail during your consultation.

Implant size is usually one of the most important concerns for women when considering a breast augmentation. Frequently, women will come in for a consultation and ask for a certain cup size (A, B, C, D, DD, etc.), but this is not an accurate way to determine the look of your breasts. Bra sizes are inconsistent between different brands, as a 36C in one store may be considered a 36DD in another; and cup sizes aren’t standardized. Instead, breast size is determined by volume and will be more accurately assessed by the look and shape that you desire as well as your unique proportions. The metric used to measure implants is in cubic centimeters (cc). Implant sizes generally range from 120cc to 800cc.

In addition to size, the profile refers to the outward projection of the implant. These profiles typically come in four variations: low, moderate, moderate plus, and high. Choosing the right profile is also important based on the look that you desire. For example, a high-profile implant will give you more fullness on the top part of your breast. The VECTRA 3-D simulation is an excellent tool to help you in this process.

The implants can be placed in one either above the pectoralis muscle (sub-glandular) or under the pectoralis muscle (sub-muscular).

Sub-Glandular Implant Placement

When an implant is placed above the pectoralis muscle and under the fatty breast tissue and mammary gland, the implant may have a rounder appearance. This technique is most commonly used for women who have enough natural breast tissue to provide good coverage of the implant. A disadvantage to the sub-glandular technique is a higher possibility of rippling of the implant. However, one advantage is that there is no muscular distortion with this placement.

Sub-Muscular Implant Placement

Placing the implant underneath the pectoralis muscle provides a more natural slope to the top part of the breast and is more commonly performed in thin patients who do not have a lot of tissue to cover the implant. This placement has a lesser chance of rippling and a more natural appearance. The sub-muscular placement also improves mammographic visualization and has a slightly lower risk of capsular contracture

There are three possible incision sites used in the breast augmentation procedure. Dr. Bajaj will recommend the best one for you.

Crease of the Breast

The inframammary incision is performed underneath the breast in its natural crease. Allowing more control for placement, whether beneath or above the muscle, this technique minimizes scarring as it hides within the crease of the breast.

Underarm

The transaxillary incision makes scarring inconspicuous by placing the implant through the axilla, or underarm.

Around the Areola

The periareolar incision is oftentimes used for women receiving multiple breast procedures. With the implant being inserted through the lower half of the areola, any scarring is then blended into the rim.

Procedure Process

The operation typically takes one hour and is performed with a general anesthetic, so you’ll sleep through the surgery. You will go home shortly after your surgery and will have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Bajaj within one week following surgery.

First, the incision spot is marked along with measurement guidelines discussed in your consultation. The anesthetic will then be administered and the area will be prepared with an antibiotic solution. The incision will be made along with an implant pocket, and your implants will be inserted and corrected for symmetrical placement. Lastly, the incision site will be closed and a dressing and bra will be placed.

After surgery, Dr. Bajaj will give you specific instructions on how to care for your breasts following surgery. Recovery time differs by individual, but you’ll most likely be able to return to work in 3-5 days; you may experience some soreness and swelling for one to two weeks. Most patients are able to return normal activities, such as working out, within two weeks of breast augmentation surgery.

While breast augmentation can provide great results on its own, results can oftentimes be greatly enhanced with the addition of ancillary procedures.

Breast Lift Procedure

If your nipples fall below the crease of your breast, an augmentation will not be sufficient enough to give you the look you desire. When the breast sags, there is too much loose skin on the top of the breast and if an implant is placed, your breasts will still sag. Women who experience breast sagging are good candidates for a breast lift. A breast lift can be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation if you are interested in both a lifted and fuller look.

Tummy Tuck Procedure

Women desiring breast augmentation surgery may be interested in a tummy tuck for added body contouring. A tummy tuck is a procedure designed to slim and define the midsection by surgically tightening the abdominal muscles and removing excess skin. For mothers looking to regain their pre-baby bodies, breast augmentation and a tummy tuck can be performed on the same day; the combination of these procedures is referred to as a mommy makeover.

Consultation

The cost of a breast augmentation will depend on which type of implant you select and whether you choose to undergo any additional procedures with your breast augmentation. However, the total cost of a breast augmentation without additional procedures can range between $6200.00-$8000.00. During your consultation, you will receive a quote based on your unique requirements and will also receive more detailed information about the procedure.
