About Breast Augmentation

Cosmetic breast surgery is a procedure that redefines the breasts to create a fuller appearance. It is often considered to be one of the most desired cosmetic surgeries, offering women who are unhappy with their breasts many options for improvement. Using implants, this procedure improves breast shape, size, and symmetry, and to create an appealing and natural-looking outcome. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Kasden is skilled in executing this surgery and performs countless breast augmentations each year. During your consultation at his office in Southlake, TX, Dr. Kasden will listen to your concerns and desires and educate you on all of the options available while also creating a surgical plan to meet your goals.

Implant Options

During your consultation with Dr. Kasden, the correct implant will be recommended based on your body frame, as well as the results you wish to achieve. Implants come in different sizes and profiles, as well as shapes and textures — all of which are taken into consideration in order to attain the desired appearance. Today, the most common implants are saline or silicone, both widely chosen and safely approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). It is important to mention that those considering saline implants must be 18 years of age while patients must be at least 22 years old in order to receive augmentation with silicone. Aside from the type of implant, there are other important factors to consider.

Size

Implant size is determined based on the number of CCs of silicone or saline used. To pick the appropriate amount, Dr. Kasden will look at how much original tissue exists and the size you desire to be. During surgery, it is common for Dr. Kasden to temporarily switch out several implants to get an idea of which is a better fit.

Shape

Breast implants are made in either a round or teardrop shape. Both shapes are commonly used; however, a large majority of our patients decide on a round-shaped implant. It often looks more natural and adds a fullness to the upper breast.

Profile

Breast implant profile refers to the projection. Meaning, this is what one sees from the side view. The most common projections include low, intermediate, high, or extra high.

Making Your Choices

These options may appear overwhelming, but choosing the correct implant is easy once the goals are discussed during the consultation. These considerations, combined with the expertise of Dr. Kasden ensure the right outcome is attained.

Ideal Candidates

The choice to have mammoplasty (breast augmentation) surgery is personal. If you are contemplating this treatment, it is important you do it for the right reasons. You should be physically healthy with breasts that are developed and be the appropriate age to get implants. If you are dissatisfied with the size and shape of your breasts because they appear shapeless, you may benefit from breast augmentation. In addition, if your breasts have been affected by weight loss or pregnancy, this cosmetic treatment can bring them back to life with increased volume. It is also a welcomed solution if you lift weights or have an overall lack of natural breast tissue.

Surgical Technique

Incision type, as well as implant placement, are discussion points that are made before surgery. During the procedure, an incision is created and then the implant will be slipped into its position. There are a couple of methods that may be used for implant placement. These include either submuscular placement (under the pectoral muscle) or submammary/subglandular placement (over the pectoral muscle). Where to place the implant is based on numerous factors including the type and degree of implant enlargement, as well as the opinion of Dr. Kasden. Regardless of the incision, scarring is generally minimal. Implant placement is determined based on your body type, implant size, and lifestyle.

What to Expect

Breast enhancement surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery using general anesthesia. Once the incision is made, the implant chosen for enhancement will be inserted through the incision and deposited into a pocket created for it, and then fitted into its proper position. After this process, the incision is closed with sutures or surgical adhesives. You will be taken into recovery and be monitored before being released. You will be sent home wearing a compression garment to assist with swelling. Within a few days, the swelling and bruising will start to decrease, and your breasts will begin to feel normal as they settle into their new position. A large percentage of patients can return to normal activities within the first week; however, exercise should be avoided for a minimum of 6 – 8 weeks. Cosmetic breast surgery creates beautiful outcomes that look and feel natural.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your total cost for breast augmentation will vary based on your implant choices and if you are having any other surgeries at the same time. Once your treatment plan is developed in your consultation, Dr. Kasden can talk to you about estimated costs and financing options. To ensure your results match your goals and last a long time, it's important to focus on quality over costs.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your treatment plan may include breast augmentation, a breast lift, or both. A breast lift removes excess skin and improves the position of the breasts, while augmentation addresses the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Kasden, he will listen to your needs and goals before explaining your best treatment options. A combination augmentation and lift are often a part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, be sure to tell Dr. Kasden during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after implants with the right surgical technique and placement. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, so it is best to wait until after you are done having children to have breast augmentation.

Can I have my implants removed?
You may decide at some point that you want to replace or remove your implants. If this happens, Dr. Kasden can perform breast revision surgery. During the revision surgery, your current implants can either be replaced with new implants or simply removed. If you choose to have your implants removed, you may need to have excess skin removed since larger implants can stretch your skin. If you have any questions or concerns after your breast augmentation surgery, schedule an appointment at the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. to discuss your options.

Do implants cause breast cancer?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still investigating a possible link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). This is not breast cancer but a cancer of the immune cells. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), breast implant-related ALCL is very rare and when caught early, it is easy to treat. Dr. Kasden encourages all patients with breast implants to get regular screenings for breast cancer. You should contact the plastic surgery practice of Scott E. Kasden, M.D. if you notice any concerns, such as swelling or other visible changes.
