Breast Augmentation

What is Breast Augmentation Enhancement Surgery?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic breast enhancement surgery designed to increase the size and improve the shape of a woman’s bust. Saline or silicone implants are inserted behind the breast, increasing the size. With Dr. Kjar’s approach, the achievement of tasteful, natural results comes from his awareness of both the patient’s goals and anatomic considerations (including chest diameter and skin elasticity).

Am I a Candidate for Breast Enhancement Surgery?

Breast augmentation is a great option for women with small or underdeveloped breasts, or for women who wish to restore volume after pregnancy.

An ideal candidate has realistic expectations and is aware of potential complications, which can include:

  • temporary soreness
  • temporary swelling
  • temporary bruising
  • changes in nipple sensation
  • capsular contracture
  • infection
  • implant rupture or displacement

Dr. Kjar can also help you to see if other options (breast reduction, breast lift, and breast reconstruction) can also accomplish your goals.

To find out if you are a candidate, contact us to arrange a breast augmentation evaluation.

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

Prior to your surgery, Dr. Kjar will give you specific preoperative guidelines. Carefully follow these instructions. Breast enhancement surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, but patients should be prepared for several days of rest and recovery.

Breast implants are the sacs of liquid or gel that are inserted behind the breast to provide additional firmness and volume.  Breast implants are available in a wide variety of sizes.  Saline implants have been demonstrated to be safe and provide high short-and long-term satisfaction rates.  We also offer silicone implants, recently re-approved and deemed safe by the Food and Drug Administration.  When Dr.Kjarconsults with a patient, he provides size options that take into account both the patient’s goals and anatomic considerations.

Generally, Dr. Kjar recommends positioning breast implants under the muscle. Submuscular breast augmentation results appear more natural and decrease the likelihood of rippling. Also, there is a decreased risk of capsular contracture or hardening, and it allows for a better view during a mammogram.

One of the top priorities for both patient and surgeon is the discreet placement of breast augmentation incisions during surgery.  Although scars fade with time, they do not disappear.  For this reason, make the incision in an inconspicuous location enhances the overall results of the surgery.  The three most commonly used incision sites are: beneath the breast, along the edge of the areola and in the armpit.  Areola and crease breast augmentation incisions are the most popular incision sites, but the location is determined on an individualized basis, weighing both patient’s wishes and individual anatomy.  For more information about breast enlargement, contact our office.

Your breast augmentation procedure will include a consultation and services from Candessa Aesthetics at no extra cost, which will also help to improve your recovery.
