The main focus of breast augmentation is increasing your overall breast size. But, this procedure can also correct breast asymmetry, alter breast shape, and restore original volume in deflated-looking breasts after you lose weight, have a baby, or finish breastfeeding your child.
The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery offers several types of breast augmentations, including:
In conventional breast augmentation, your surgeon makes incisions in a hidden area, like your breast fold, within the breast areola, or in your armpit. Although the scars are subtle and fade over time, you might prefer a scarless surgery. With this type of breast augmentation, you'll choose either silicone, gummy bear cohesive silicone that conforms to your breast, or saline implants. Saline implants feel firmer while silicone implants feel more natural.
Transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA) is a scarless breast surgery in which your surgeon creates the incision inside your navel, where it's impossible to see later. They place the deflated saline breast implant through the incision using slender instruments, moving it into the optimal position. Then, your surgeon uses a slim tube to inflate the implant.
Natural breast augmentation uses natural fat instead of implants. Your surgeon performs liposuction on an area where you've got some fat to spare. Then, they inject it into your breasts to enhance volume and shape. Generally, fat transfer is best suited for women who want a moderate change in breast size.
When you get implants, you'll choose both size and shape, for example, round or teardrop shape. Your surgeon helps you choose the option that gives you a proportionate and attractive appearance.
At The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery, breast augmentation is an outpatient surgery, performed in the hospital-grade surgery center on-site, so you can go home shortly after your procedure is complete. Recovery is generally quite quick, with most patients feeling ready to leave the house within only a day or two.
