BREAST ENHANCEMENT

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed at Palm Aesthetics Plastic Surgery Center in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Breast augmentation allows women with flat chest or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, beautifully proportioned appearance through the placement of breast implants, made of saline or silicone gel. Our patients choose to have breast augmentation for many different personal, medical and aesthetic reasons, which includes balancing breast size and proportion, compensating for reduced breast mass post-pregnancy, and correcting congenital breast deformity. Our team of highly-experienced plastic surgeons, board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, provide expert breast augmentation care with great-looking and natural-feeling results.

Contact Palm Aesthetics at (941) 896-6080 for more information on Breast Augmentation services. We serve the Sarasota communities of Ana Maria, Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Palmetto, Parish and Siesta Key.

Breast Implants Options

Saline Breast Implants

Saline-filled implants are silicone shells filled with sterile salt water (saline). They are inserted empty, and then filled with saline once in place. Breast augmentation using saline breast implants are available to women 18 years old and older and to women of any age for breast reconstruction.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. Compared to saline breast implants, silicone gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. With silicone gel breast implants, you may need to visit your Lakewood Ranch plastic surgeon regularly to make sure the gels are not leaking and the breast implants are functioning properly. An ultrasound or MRI screening can assess the condition of breast implants. Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for breast augmentation in women ages 22 or older.

Form-Stable Breast Implants

Form-stable breast implants, also referred to as gummy bear breast implants, maintain their shape even when the implant shell is broken. The consistency of the silicone gel inside the implants are thicker and firmer compared to traditional silicone gel breast implants and are thought to be less likely to break. Gummy bear breast implants are not round, but rather shaped with more projection at the bottom and tapered on the top. If a shaped implant moves or rotates, it may lead to an unusual appearance of the breast. Form-stable breast implants require longer incisions in the skin.

What to Expect

Breasts consist of milk ducts and glands, surrounded by fatty tissue that provides its shape and feel. Situated beneath the breast is the pectoralis major muscle. For minimally invasive approach, incisions are made at the border of the areola (the colored skin around the nipple) or in the axilla armpit. Incisions may also be made in the inframammary crease under the breast. Breast augmentation procedure is commonly performed with general anesthesia, but may also be done using intravenous sedation. Some swelling, pain or discomfort may be felt in the breast area, as well as bruising around the breast and chest area post-surgery. Feeling of nausea or dizziness has also been reported. Constipation can occur as a side effect of too many painkillers.

Risks & Complications

The decision to have breast augmentation is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the potential risks and complications are acceptable. Your plastic surgeon will discuss the risks and complications prior to your consent. It is important that you address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.Some of the possible breast augmentation risk and complications include anesthesia risk, bleeding, infection, altered nipple or breast sensation, implant leakage or rupture, formation of scar tissue around the implant, fluid accumulation, skin wrinkling over the implant, persistent pain. Some breast augmentation may result in faulty or wrong breast implant position and may require revision surgery.
