Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation surgery, or augmentation mammoplasty, involves the addition of breast implants to boost volume, improve shape and symmetry, and achieve the desired size of the breasts.

Women undergo breast augmentation for several reasons, some medical and some cosmetic. Typical goals for a breast augmentation are:

  • Restoring lost volume caused by weight loss, breastfeeding, or pregnancy
  • Increasing the size of naturally smaller breasts and improving symmetry
  • Reconstructing the breasts following breast cancer treatment, such as a mastectomy, or following an injury

If you’re looking to improve your self-confidence or feel back to normal following a disease or injury, breast augmentation may be a good choice for you.

What types of implants are available?

In recent years, most implants are filled with a saline solution or made of silicone gel.

Saline implants are filled with a safe saline solution that has the consistency of water, so the folds of saline implants may be more easily seen or felt. Silicone gel implants often flow differently than saline implants and provide a more natural look.

Dr. Thakur also uses Sientra implants, also known as  “gummy bear implants,” to achieve an even more natural look and feel. The cohesive gel implants retain their shape but are still soft. Dr. Thakur and her team will help determine which implant type is best for you.

What can I expect when getting breast augmentation surgery?

When you undergo a breast augmentation, you will likely have general anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the surgery. Then, Dr. Thakur makes an incision under the breast, around the nipple, or under your arm. She places the implants in the desired position and seals the incision.

Dr. Thakur takes great care to give your breasts a natural appearance following surgery and works with you to address any aesthetic concerns. If appropriate, she can complete a breast lift at the same time as breast augmentation surgery to treat sagging breasts.

Complete healing may take several weeks, and implants can last many years.
