Why Choose Breast Augmentation?

One of the top confidence-boosting surgeries.

For women, our breasts are often one of the most important parts of our appearance. It’s why breast augmentation, commonly called a “breast aug” or “boob job,” has become one of the top plastic surgery options for women. Breast augmentation can correct natural concerns that impact our confidence, including small breasts, asymmetrical breasts, and sagging or shrinkage.

Hear Amy Simon, MD, FACS, explain how breast augmentation can help correct breast asymmetry.

Do I Need Breast Augmentation?

A cosmetic decision to look and feel your best.

Breast augmentation is about more than size. While women with naturally small breasts often choose breast augmentation to increase in size, many patients also choose breast augmentation to correct sagging or shrinkage due to a prior pregnancy or weight loss. If you want to add more symmetry to your breasts, you may also consider breast augmentation.

It’s important to note that the FDA mandates all women must be over the age of 18 to receive saline breast implants and at least 22 to receive silicone implants. The best way to know if breast augmentation is right for you is to meet with Dr. Simon to explore the possibilities for your body. 

Hear Dr. Simon explain how she ensures you get the implant size you want.

Breast Augmentation Benefits

A procedure customized to your body.

The breast augmentation procedure, including location of incision and type of implant, depends on your current breasts, body type, and desired results, among other factors. Prior to performing the procedure, Dr. Simon will help you explore your options, as well as whether you want the implant behind the pectoralis muscle or directly behind the breast tissue.

Dr. Simon performs all surgical procedures alongside an anesthesiologist in a fully accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) that exceeds the most stringent state and national accreditation standards, providing you the highest level of safety available. 

Hear Dr. Simon explain the difference between breast augmentation surgery and a breast lift, and why some patients choose to do both.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

A straightforward recovery process. 

After surgery, dressings are immediately applied with an elastic compression wrap over the breasts to provide support and reduce inflammation. Dr. Simon will send you home within a few hours with a complete post-op recovery plan to ensure you are as comfortable as possible throughout the healing process. She offers the option of a local analgesic medicine, Exparel, to minimize discomfort and the need for any narcotic pain medications and the nausea they cause. Learn more about Exparel.

Though you may notice some fullness the first few days following surgery, it will subside in a month or so. You can return to work after a long weekend, but we recommend additional recovery time if your job requires strenuous physical activity. You’ll need to avoid heavy lifting, pushing, and other exercise for about six weeks.

Breast Augmentation Surgery FAQ

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 implant are excellent at creating a natural and firm look to the breasts. Each have specific characteristics best discussed with Dr. Simon.

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. Dr. Simon will discuss this during your consultation.

Can I combine other corrective surgeries 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, Dr. Simon 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 Dr. Simon in consultation.
