About Breast Augmentation

Breast enhancement surgery is a procedure that enlarges the breasts for a fuller look. It is known as one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeries, granting women who dislike their breast shape numerous opportunities for improvement. With the help of breast implants or fat grafting, this cosmetic treatment improves breast size and shape and produces a desirable and balanced outcome. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia is highly trained in implementing this procedure and performs many breast augmentations year round. When you have your consultation at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Movagharnia will address your aesthetic desires and concerns and provide you with all of the choices available while also tailoring a treatment plan to attain your personal goals.

Ideal Candidates

The decision to undergo cosmetic breast surgery is a personal one for women. If you are considering this surgery, it is essential you do it for yourself. Ideal candidates should be healthy and at a normal weight with breasts that are formed and the right age to receive implants. Patients who are unhappy with the size of their chest because they look small or asymmetrical could benefit from this surgery. Moreover, if your breasts have changed due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss, this procedure can give them life with increased shape and fullness. It is a welcomed answer for those who weight train or have limited native breast mass.

About Breast Implants

When you are in your consultation with Dr. Movagharnia, the appropriate implant will be chosen based on your body size and shape as well as your cosmetic goal. Breast implants are made in varying shapes, sizes, profiles, and textures — each of which is considered carefully in order to achieve the desired aesthetic goal. Still, the most commonly chosen breast implants are silicone or saline, both widely popular and approved to use per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). An important fact is that patients considering saline breast implants must be 18 years old, while patients must be 22 years of age in order to undergo surgery with silicone. Two other types of augmentations include a form-stable implant known as a gummy bear implant and an autologous approach through fat grafting. 

Size

Implant size will be chosen depending on the number of CCs of silicone or saline desired. In order to choose the right amount, Dr. Movagharnia will assess the existing breast tissue as well as the size that you wish to attain. It is common for Dr. Movagharnia to try out different sizes and implants during the procedure to ensure proper fit and better see which will work for your body type.

Shape

The most popular shapes are the teardrop or round implants. Both can produce pleasing results; however, the round shape is more widely chosen due to its ability to add a natural-looking fullness throughout the breast.

Profile

The profile of the breasts is what one will see from the side: the amount of projection and protrusion of the breast from the chest area. The most common projections include low, intermediate, high, or extra high.

Making Your Choice

With as many choices and options available today, choosing the correct breast implant to meet your needs might seem daunting. However, Dr. Movagharnia's experience and knowledge of breast augmentation can help ease this process. He will thoroughly explain each aspect in detail and ensure that your decision will produce the most natural, appealing results based on your goals.

Surgical Technique

Incision placement, as well as implant location, are considerations that will need to be made prior to surgery. During breast augmentation, the chosen incision is created and then the chosen implant will be placed into its position. There are two techniques that may be applied for implant placement. These are either under the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue but over the pectoral muscle. Where to insert the breast implant depends on varying factors including the size and type of implant, plus the opinion of Dr. Movagharnia. Regardless of incision type, scarring is generally unnoticeable. Placement and location are based upon your implant size, activity level, and body type.

What to Expect

Cosmetic breast surgery is an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia. After completing the incision, the silicone or saline implant will be placed through the incision opening and deposited into a surgically created pocket, and then secured into its correct position. Following the placement of the implant, the incision is carefully secured with skin adhesives or sutures. Each patient will be taken into a recovery area and carefully monitored prior to being released. You will be instructed to continue wearing a medical sports bra to help reduce swelling. Several days after surgery, the swelling will begin to dissipate, and the breasts will start to look and feel normal as they get used to their new position. Patients can resume everyday activities within several days; however, physical exertion such as exercise should be delayed for roughly a couple of months. Breast implant surgery produces gorgeous outcomes that feel and appear normal. This procedure oftentimes can be a life changer for many individuals, offering them the opportunity to feel more confident.
