Considering Breast Augmentation? Here’s What You Need to Know

Breast augmentation is the top cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States, with more than 280,000 in 2019 alone. There are many reasons behind the popularity of breast augmentation, not the least of which is the fact that it’s one of the most effective ways to reach your body-shape goals.

At Dr. Brennan’s Cosmetic Center, Dr. George Brennan and our team offer a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic solutions to help our patients bring out the best in themselves. If you’re disappointed with the shape or size of your breasts, explore how a breast augmentation can help you to hit the beach brimming with confidence.

What a breast augmentation can accomplish

A breast augmentation is a technique we use to help women with several issues. First and foremost, if Mother Nature was stingy when it came to your chest, we can remedy the problem through breast augmentation, allowing you to increase your breasts by several sizes.

Another common issue among women is breasts that are asymmetrical or misshapen. With a breast augmentation, we can even out your breasts and/or give them a more pleasing shape.

Lastly, having children can do a number on your body, including your breasts, especially if you breastfeed. If your breasts have been left hollow after having children, a breast augmentation can restore their former fullness.

Your options in breast augmentation

There’s no shortage of options when it comes to breast implants, and we offer only the best here at our practice. The first decision to make is whether you’d like a saline implant or a silicone implant.

With saline, we insert an empty pouch into your breasts, which we fill with a saline solution to your desired size. One of the main advantages of this solution is that we don’t have to make large incisions since we’re only placing an empty implant. As well, should the implant rupture, your body quickly and easily flushes out the harmless saline solution. 

Silicone implants are more structured and are designed to feel more like natural breast tissue. We do have to make a larger incision to accommodate these implants, but we make every effort to conceal the incision (such as under your breast). If a silicone implant ruptures, the good news is that the implant will still hold its shape.

Getting swimsuit-ready

To help you plan for your big debut at the beach, a typical breast augmentation timeline goes something like this:

Of course, everyone’s recovery is different, but our goal here is to demonstrate that the road from your breast augmentation procedure to the beach isn’t all that long or arduous.
