Do I Need Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is the ideal choice for women interested in boosting their confidence levels by increasing their breast size, adding symmetry to their breasts, or correcting the sagging or shrinkage that can occur over time. This procedure is incredibly popular, and you’re not alone if you’ve found yourself seriously considering the feelings of empowerment it can help you enjoy.

Breast augmentation is a great way to address cosmetic issues that may be keeping you from achieving the feminine silhouette you’d prefer, such as:

  • Small breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Sagging
  • Shrinkage

Silicone vs. Saline Breast Implants: Which Implant Type Is Right for Me?

It’s important to note that the FDA mandates that all women must be over 18 to receive saline breast implants and at least 22 to receive silicone implants. The best way to know which implant type is right for you is to meet with our board-certified plastic surgeon and explore the possibilities for your body.

Our team has years of experience working with patients and guiding them to the breast augmentation options that are right for them. During your consultation, we’ll get to know your goals and help you arrive at your ideal results, collaborating closely with you in a way that enables you to make informed decisions about the figure you desire.

The Primary Benefits of Breast Augmentation

A woman’s breasts are often the physical feature that makes her feel most like a woman. As such, breast augmentation surgery can help you feel more beautiful, more feminine, sexier, and generally more whole.

When performed after a woman has had children (and especially after breastfeeding), this procedure—especially when combined with a breast lift—can restore the patient’s figure and make her feel like herself again.

For women born with naturally small breasts, augmentation can help them feel like their body is finally in proportion, giving them a curvy, feminine shape that’s fun to show off in the kind of short-sleeved clothing and swimsuits we love so much here in Florida.

Why Our Patients Love this Procedure

Breast augmentation surgery comes with a variety of life-affirming improvements to your figure, including:

  • Rejuvenating your body 
  • Achieving a more feminine look
  • Improving the symmetry of your breasts
  • Restoring volume in your breasts
  • Giving you the confidence you deserve!

Supporting You, Every Step of the Way

We understand that the cosmetic journey you’re taking with us is a transformative experience, and will make every effort to ensure that you understand the procedure and your upcoming results. We’ll even work with you throughout your recovery period to ensure that you’re healing properly and loving your new look. To get started, simply reach out and set up your initial consultation at our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL locations.

    Getting Started with Your Consultation

    Your consultation gives us the opportunity for a vital exchange of information: Our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon will get to know you and your goals, your lifestyle, and your body type while we help you understand the details of your upcoming surgery. We’ll talk you through everything from the preparation process to the surgical techniques we’ll be using and the support you can expect as you rest, recover, and get ready to enjoy your exciting results. Once we’ve gotten to know the details of your health history, personal timeline, budget, and expectations for surgery and its downtime, we’ll educate you about how this treatment will work for you, explaining the goals it both can and cannot help you accomplish. We’ll help you explore the procedures that may be right for you, explaining the various benefits that come along with them.

    Personalizing Your Results 

    We enjoy collaborating with our patients to design their treatment plans, and you’ll be given the chance to try on implant sizers in a sports bra, giving you a sense of the size and implant type that will most effectively realize your personal goals. This gives you an exceptional level of precision as you settle on the augmentation results that will leave you feeling most satisfied and confident.

    How to Determine Breast Augmentation Size

    Preparing for Your Procedure

    The final stages of your consultation will involve agreeing on your treatment plan, before going over the next steps as we prepare for your procedure. We’ll present you with a quote and discuss any financing options that might help make the cost of your procedure more convenient for you and fit your budget. Finally, we’ll schedule your surgery, along with any necessary pre- and post-operational appointments, to ensure your total support.

    Fully Accredited Facilities

    Your breast augmentation procedure will be performed alongside an anesthesiologist in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you with the highest level of safety available.

    Our Surgical Techniques

    The choice of placement of your breast implants will depend on your level of physical activity and breast size. Regardless of the technique used, our board-certified plastic surgery specialist will always carefully make incisions that are easily hidden by clothes or the natural folds of your skin. During your preoperative consultation, your surgeon will explore these different techniques with you and help you understand the choice that is right for you.

    Periareolar Submuscular Placement

    During a periareolar submuscular breast augmentation procedure, your surgeon will make an incision around the areola and place the implants behind your chest muscle.

    Periareolar Subglandular Placement

    The periareolar subglandular breast augmentation approach sees your surgeon making an incision around the areola and placing the breast implants above your chest muscle. 

    Inframammary Subglandular Placement

    An inframammary subglandular breast augmentation procedure involves an incision made under the breast with the placement of the breast implants above the chest muscle.

    Offering You the Best of Both Worlds

    Here at Clevens Face and Body Specialists, our board-certified plastic surgeons are able to combine breast surgery and body contouring procedures, in many instances partnering with our facial plastic surgery specialists to offer you the best of both worlds—a practitioner who specializes in facial procedures as well as a surgeon who specializes in body contouring.

    We invite you to speak with your surgeon if you’re interested in exploring some of the procedures whose results might complement your breast augmentation, including:

    Getting Back to Normal After Breast Augmentation

    After your surgery, dressings will be applied immediately, with an elastic compression wrap placed over your breasts to provide support and reduce inflammation. Our board-certified plastic surgery specialists will send you home within a few hours, along with a complete post-op recovery plan to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout the healing process.

    You can expect to feel tired and sore in the days immediately following your procedure, and we’ll provide you with prescription medication to help you relax and rest as comfortably as possible. We’ll also offer you the option of a local analgesic medicine called Exparel, to minimize any discomfort during your recovery and reduce the need for narcotic medications. 

    The swelling in your breasts will subside in about a month. Patients are typically able to return to work within a few days, but this depends on the level of activity required by your job. Most normal activities can be resumed within one to two days, though we recommend waiting about six weeks to resume your full activities, including heavy lifting, pushing, and other exercises.

    At Clevens Face and Body Specialists, our goal is to support you through every step of your cosmetic journey, and this involves maintaining close contact with you as you make your way through the aftercare process. We’ll give you thorough instructions and everything you need to stay comfortable, and we’ll schedule follow-up appointments to track your progress as you heal.

    Is it safe to get pregnant after breast augmentation surgery?

    Yes. Breast implants are completely safe for pregnant women and pose no additional risks.

    Do saline or silicone implants leave the most natural result?

    Both types of implants are excellent at creating a natural and firm look to the breasts. Each has specific characteristics best discussed with our breast and body specialists.

    Will my implants last all my life?

    Implants do not have a standard lifespan and many factors can determine if they need to be removed or replaced in the future. Our breast and body specialists will discuss this during your consultation.

    Can I combine other plastic surgery procedures with a breast augmentation?

    You certainly can, especially if you are seeking a more complete body makeover to restore a youthful shape. Many patients elect to have a tummy tuck or liposuction alongside a breast augmentation procedure, for example.

    Can a breast augmentation help with asymmetrical breasts?

    A lack of symmetry in the breasts is a common problem for many women, and breast augmentation can correct this issue. In some cases, our Florida breast and body specialists will advise augmenting one breast while reducing the other or using two different implant sizes.

    My breasts are very droopy and saggy. Can a breast augmentation help?

    Breast augmentation surgery alone will not correct severely drooping breasts. Instead, a breast lift can be combined with a breast augmentation so your breasts can look both fuller and lifted, too. The best way to find out which procedure will achieve your goals is to see our breast and body specialists in consultation.

    How much does breast augmentation cost in Florida?

    The cost to get breast implants in Florida can vary depending on a number of factors including the training and experience of your surgeon, where the procedure is performed, and whether you are combining your breast augmentation with another procedure such as a tummy tuck. At our Melbourne, Florida plastic surgery practice, our board certified breast surgery specialists perform procedures at a fully accredited outpatient surgery center and are known for achieving beautiful, natural-looking outcomes for our patients. The cost of breast augmentation for our patients ranges from $7,000 to $15,000. To learn more, schedule your consultation with our breast and body specialist today!
