Breast Augmentation Q & A
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery used to adjust the shape or size of your breasts. You might be unsatisfied with your breasts’ natural appearance, or you might miss how they looked when you were younger.
With weight, hormone fluctuations, and the general toll of time, your breasts tend to change in shape and size. Breast augmentation offers the chance to create the breast contouring you desire or correct the changes that time, gravity, and motherhood often bring.
How is breast augmentation different from other breast surgeries?
At Plastic Surgery Arts Center, Dr. Garcia performs several types of breast surgery. Depending on your needs, he’ll help you choose between:
Breast augmentation surgery increases the size of your breasts for cosmetic and reconstructive purposes. Dr. Garcia uses Sientra silicone or saline implants to make your breasts more firm, round, and shapely.
During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Garcia reduces your breasts’ size by removing excess fat, tissue, and skin. You can get the surgery for cosmetic purposes or to ease the back pain resulting from the extra weight on your chest. Both men and women commonly get this surgery to improve their body image.
Breast reconstruction is a rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost breast tissue due to cancer or other health issues. Reconstruction of a breast that has been partially or completely removed is possible through a combination of plastic surgery techniques that not only create a new breast shape but also dramatically improves your self-image, self-confidence, and quality of life.
Over the years, gravity tends to pull your breasts down, stretching the tissue and changing its shape. During a breast lift, Dr. Garcia remodels the breast tissues and excess skin to lift and tighten your breasts.
During your consultation, you can learn more about the available options. If you decide to move forward with breast augmentation, Dr. Garcia explains what to expect in terms of the procedure and recovery process.
Who is a candidate for breast augmentation?
Breast surgery benefits many patients who want to see a difference in their body shape and enjoy the boost in confidence it brings.
Dr. Garcia determines if you’re a good candidate for your desired breast surgery if you:
- Don’t smoke
- Have realistic expectations
- Are bothered by your breasts’ appearance
- Experience other symptoms due to your breasts’ size, such as back pain and chafing
- Are healthy overall
- Want to get the surgery for your own satisfaction and not for someone else
To make sure you’re a good fit for breast surgery, you’ll first attend an in-depth consultation with Dr. Garcia to evaluate your medical history and expectations. To discuss the possibilities of enhanced or adjusted breasts, call Plastic Surgery Arts Center or book your consultation online today.
