Serving Orange County: Newport Beach and Fullerton, CA

Breast Augmentation in Newport Beach & Orange CountyYour decision to choose breast enhancement is an intimately personal one. I work closely with my patients to help them make the best decisions for their goals. I take a conservative approach to breast augmentation that helps my patients achieve a naturally enhanced appearance, without sacrificing a beautiful breast shape. By incorporating Vectra® 3D Imaging, I am able to show you your possible options of breast shape and size, and help you choose the perfect implant.

Is This You?

Here are some of the common reasons I hear about why a woman is considering breast augmentation:

  • I’ve always felt that my breasts are small and want to make a change
  • My breasts are smaller now that I’ve had kids, and I want to get back what I used to have
  • I’d like to balance out my body proportions
  • I’m self-conscious about how I look in a bathing suit or other clothing

Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Breast augmentation is ideal for women who want to increase their breast size, or whose breasts have changed in size as a result of pregnancy or following weight loss. Breast implants enhance your figure by adding volume, and both silicone gel and saline implants are available for a greater level of customization. The best candidates for surgery are in good health physically and mentally, and have realistic expectations about their results.

I understand that breast enhancement is a big decision and I want to provide you with the resources to feel happy about your choices. During a breast augmentation consultation, I offer Vectra 3D imaging to help you see what specific implant types and sizes may look like on your own body frame before you schedule surgery.  We’ll also spend a good amount of time discussing which implant sizes and shapes and which incision options best match up with your appearance goals.

The Procedure

Through an incision made around the areola or within the breast crease, I will place your selected implants below the chest muscles. In some cases, I may recommend incorporating a breast lift along with implants during the surgical procedure to lift and reshape natural breast- tissue while increasing volume.

After your procedure, you will be provided with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure that your healing goes as smoothly as possible. The first 24 to 48 hours after your surgery likely will be the most uncomfortable, with your breasts feeling swollen and tender. Most of my patients are ready to resume their regular daily activities after about a week. I will have you return to the office for a follow-up visit and be available to answer any questions or address any concerns during your recovery.

About Breast Implants

Woman with breast implantsThere are many breast implant options available today for women who decide that breast augmentation surgery is right for them. I use only implant types that have been approved by the FDA for use in breast augmentation and reconstruction procedures. Breast implants have been extensively studied and tested, and the resulting research and development means that women choosing breast implants today have highly advanced options.

Breast Implant Types

Very generally, implants fall into two different types based on the material they are made of. All breast implants have an outer shell constructed using pliable silicone. Within this silicone shell, an implant may be filled with saline (a medical-grade saltwater solution) or silicone gel.

Breast implants come in many shapes and sizes. Round implants are circular but a bit flat, and the material inside will respond to gravity.  They are passive, and do not control the shape of the breast, rather, they simply “fill” the breast. In general, they are best used for women who have a naturally good shape, but want additional volume.

Anatomical or “teardrop” shaped implants are designed with an increased amount of fill material on the bottom, to closely mimic the natural shape and slope of the breasts. The implants hold their shape, and will therefore control the shape of the breast rather than simply “fill” the breast. They are best used for women who have a relatively flat breast without a natural slope, who would like to have a small to modest increase in volume.

Silicone Gel Breast Implants

  • This implant type has been approved by the FDA for use in the United States since 2006.
  • Silicone gel implants are the most common type of implant used in the U.S. and worldwide
  • These implants give a more natural feel to the breast compared to saline breast implants.
  • Silicone gel implants hold their shape and size well, and are less likely to “bottom out” than saline implants.
  • These implants are filled by the manufacturer before they are placed. This may mean that a slightly larger incision is necessary compared to saline implants.
  • Silicone gel implants are approved for women age 22 and older for primary breast augmentation.

Women choosing breast implants today have highly advanced options. I encourage you to schedule a consultation to learn more about all the implant types offered at my practice.

Saline Breast Implants

  • This implant type is filled it sterile salt water, which is compatible with the human body.
  • Saline implants are filled after they have been placed, which allows me to make a slightly smaller incision for placement and adjust volume after the implants have been inserted.
  • If the implant should leak and the saline is released, it can be safely absorbed by your body.
  • They are also more prone to aesthetic imperfections such as wrinkling, rippling, double-bubble, and bottoming out.
  • Compared to silicone gel implants, saline implants look and feel less like your natural breast tissue.
  • This implant type is the only option approved for women between the ages of 18 and 21 for primary breast augmentation.

There are several other considerations to discuss about your implants, including implant profile and shell texture. Textured breast implants provide a surface that helps to anchor the implant in place. Most commonly, “teardrop” or “anatomical” implants will come with a textured outer shell to reduce the chance that the implant will rotate within the breast pocket.

My recommendation on the implant that is right for you will depend in large part on your existing anatomy and your goals for the surgery. I can discuss all aspects of breast implants in more detail during your consultation.
