What is Breast Augmentation?

If you feel unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, breast augmentation increases the volume with an implant or fat grafting, which creates a fuller and more contoured appearance. As one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, breast augmentation offers a variety of options for enhancement. Using implants or fat from the patient's body, our skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Brandon-Dzung Mang, can improve breast shape and size and create gorgeous results. During your consultation at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Mang will listen to your cosmetic goals, provide details about your available treatment options, and create a customized surgical plan. Your tailored surgical plan will outline your preferred implant options, including the size, shape, and profile. To learn more, please contact our office in Tampa, FL.

What are Your Breast Implant Options?

During your consultation, we will help you choose the best implant option. Your implant type is based on several factors, including your body size, breast shape, and cosmetic goals. Implants are made in a variety of shapes, sizes, profiles, and textures, and we will help you carefully consider each type. Still, the most common breast implant types are saline or silicone. Both implants are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), but they have certain age restrictions. If you prefer saline breast implants, you must be at least 18 years old. For patients who want silicone implants, they must be at least 22 years old. Additionally, gummy bear implants and fat grafting are also popular options. We will also consider the size, shape, and profile of your implant.

Is Breast Augmentation Right For You?

The choice to have breast augmentation is very personal. If you are considering breast augmentation, you should do it for you and not because of someone else. Ideal candidates for breast augmentation:

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Have fully developed breasts
  • Are the proper age for implants
  • Prefer shapelier and fuller-looking breasts
  • Hope to increase the size

If you feel unhappy with the overall appearance of your breasts, you could benefit from breast augmentation. Also, if your breasts have changed size or shape because of aging, nursing, or weight loss, this surgery can rejuvenate their appearance. It also works well for patients who body build or have little to no native breast tissue.

How is a Breast Augmentation Performed?

During your consultation, Dr. Mang chooses the best incision technique and implant position. Depending on your needs, he may place the implant under or over the pectoral muscle. The implant placement technique depends on several factors, including the type, size, activity level, body type, and Dr. Mang's perspective. Additionally, no matter where he places the incision, scarring is often hidden within the natural creases and lines of the body.

What to Expect After Breast Augmentation?

Breast enhancement surgery is an outpatient procedure that uses general anesthesia. After making your incision, the implant is inserted through the opening, placed in the surgical pocket, and secured into position. Next, the incision is closed with sutures or surgical adhesives. Each patient is taken into the recovery room and carefully monitored before being released. To assist with swelling and recovery, we will send you home wearing a recovery compression bra. Several days after surgery, your symptoms will start to subside. Your breasts will begin to look and feel normal as they fall into their new position. Generally, you can resume everyday activities within the first week; however, you should avoid exercise for 6 – 8 weeks. Cosmetic breast surgery produces gorgeous outcomes that look and feel normal.

Breast augmentation FAQ

Do I need a breast lift or breast augmentation?
A breast lift removes loose or drooping skin and raises the remaining tissue, while implants enhance the shape and size of your breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Mang, we can explore whether you benefit most from a breast lift, augmentation, or a combination of the two. Your surgical plan is custom-made for your needs.

Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation at Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery, it's important to let us know in your initial appointment. Most women can breastfeed with implants with the right implant placement and incisions. Because it's not guaranteed, it's better to wait until you have completed your family before getting breast surgery.

Can I have my implants removed?
Yes! Many women decide to have their implants removed to update their look or address medical concerns. Our team has experience safely removing or replacing breast implants as needed. We're happy to provide personalized attention to each patient who wants breast implant removal.

Will I have scars after breast augmentation?
Yes, scarring is inevitable after any surgical procedure, including breast augmentation. However, experienced surgeons employ techniques to minimize and strategically place these scars, often under the breast fold or around the areola, where they are less noticeable.

How soon can I exercise after breast augmentation?
It's generally recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for at least six weeks after the surgery. Light activities like walking can be resumed much sooner, but it's essential to consult your Dr. Mang for personalized guidance.

Do implants cause breast cancer?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still investigating a link between breast implants and ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma). This is not breast cancer, but a cancer of the immune system. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), implant-related ALCL is very rare and when caught early, it is highly treatable. Dr. Mang encourages all patients with implants to get frequent screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Rejuve Aesthetic Surgery in Tampa, FL, if you see any concerns, like swelling.
