Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among women. Many women elect to undergo breast augmentation because they desire fuller, perkier breasts or they are looking to create symmetry if one breast is noticeably different in size and shape than the other. Whatever your reason, we want you to feel confident with your decision to have your Breast Augmentation performed at Sanctuary Plastic Surgery.

Our website has been designed to guide you through your Breast Augmentation procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

An important consideration about breast implants is that they should be in proportion to your body to create the most attractive result rather than looking false and unrealistic. Although breast implants are not permanent, they generally last 10-15 years, so choices made prior to surgery will be with you for many years. Choosing a breast size based on a popular look or trend may be unsatisfactory over time and extremely large breasts will droop sooner than breasts with smaller implants. Our surgeons will work with you to create the best possible result so that your breasts are in balance with the rest of your body. 

Am I a Breast Augmentation Candidate

If you are physically healthy, psychologically stable, and have realistic expectations, you will be a good candidate for breast augmentation. Age is a consideration, as our surgeons do not perform breast augmentation surgery on women younger than the age of 18. The exception to this would be if there are clear physical reasons to do so. Some women develop later than others. Inserting breast implants in a teen may result in an overly large contour within only a few years. However, for a teen who has had absolutely no breast development or who suffers from breast deformities, a consultation with one of our surgeons can help you decide if a breast augmentation is, indeed, right for your teen-aged daughter.

If you are over the age of 40, your surgeon will ask you to have a baseline mammogram so that you have an "original mapping" of your breasts as they appeared prior to implant surgery. Any abnormalities identified on the mammogram must be addressed prior to your procedure. If your breasts are sagging, your surgeon may recommend a breast lift along with the implant to create appropriate projection.

How Breast Augmentation is Performed

Breast augmentation procedures are performed under general anesthesia in our Boca Raton accredited in-office surgery suite on an outpatient basis. You will have the choice of IV sedation or general anesthesia

Inframammary incision Preriareolar incision
The method of inserting and positioning your implant depends a great deal on your anatomy, though the incision is generally placed in the areola or the crease under the breast.

After the incision has been made, a pocket is created into which the implant is placed. This may be directly behind the existing breast tissue or underneath the muscles of the chest wall (the pectoral muscle). The implants are then centered beneath your nipples.

The incisions are closed with dissolvable sutures over which tape is applied for greater support. The incisions will fade over time.

Breast Augmentation can also be done with a Breast Lift, a procedure that will raise and firm the breasts by removing excess skin.


What to Expect After Surgery

Following your breast implant procedure, we will recommend that you wear a supportive bra 24 hours a day until the surgery sites have healed completely, which can take as long as 6-8 weeks. You will be sore at first, but after about a week you’ll feel well again and fully healed in about 6-8 weeks. Although results are immediate, due to swelling and settling, the final results will not be apparent for about 3-4 months. After the procedure, we recommend that you avoid lifting your arms over your head as well as any exercise or activity that uses your chest muscles for a period of 4-6 weeks. You’ll come back into the office within the first few days for your first postoperative visit at which time you’ll be examined to be sure everything is healing appropriately. 

Please bear in mind that breast implants are not permanent. Every few years you should schedule an appointment with your surgeon to insure that the implants are still positioned well. In particular, silicone-filled implants can rupture without your even knowing it so, for this reason in particular, every two years we recommend an MRI be done to confirm viability of the implant.
