Rounded, ample breasts have long been associated with a feminine physique — but not everyone was born with the cleavage they desire. Breast augmentation can create a more proportionate upper body profile, enhancing your wardrobe options and boosting your self-confidence. The surgery is typically performed with silicone or saline implants to sculpt a more alluring silhouette and restore your figure after pregnancy, aging, or weight loss.

Breast augmentation enhances breast size, shape, and projection. It's a popular surgery using FDA-approved implants (saline, silicone, or gummy bear). Results are lasting but not permanent; replacement might be needed (breast revision). It doesn't fix sagging or nipple position. For that, a combo of augmentation and breast lift is needed.



Saline implants are inserted unfilled for smaller incisions and reduced scarring. They're filled with safely sterilized saltwater, absorbed if ruptured, making them a popular choice for safety.


Silicone implants consist of a gel-filled shell, providing a natural look and customization. Ruptures might be undetectable, so regular MRI checks are recommended.


Gummy Bear implants offer tear-shaped, form-stable devices, that retain shape during activities. They're slightly pricier but provide a highly natural look and feel.

Implant size is a personal decision guided by your doctor. During your consultation for breast augmentation in Newport Beach, you can try on implants to visualize the outcome. Height, weight, lifestyle, style preferences, and clothing influence your choice.


Ideal candidates for breast implant surgery are seeking:

  • Increase in their breast size
  • Better breast symmetry & shape
  • Post-mastectomy reconstruction
  • An improved self-image

Candidates must:

  • Be non-smokers
  • Be of sound mind and body
  • Be aware of the risks and benefits of the surgery
  • Have realistic expectations for their results

You will not be considered a candidate if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have an abnormal mammogram, or are battling an illness or medical condition.



Here, the incision encircles the areola, with the scar well-hidden within its darker pigmentation. The drawback is that this positioning may not preserve nipple sensitivity as well as some of the other incision options.


The frequently used incision, known as inframammary fold incision, offers access to breast tissue. The scar hides under the bra line. It's a low-risk option for future breastfeeding and childbirth plans.


The incision is in the armpit, with nearly invisible scarring. The surgeon tunnels the unfilled implant to the chest and inflates it. No visible breast scars. The potential drawback is that this technique may be less precise in terms of implant placement.


Combining cosmetic procedures is common for time and cost savings. A mommy makeover rejuvenates the body with breast surgery, abdominoplasty, liposuction, labiaplasty, and facial rejuvenation.

Breast augmentation might include a breast lift for volume and lift. Fat transfer with implants yields natural-looking results, hiding implant edges.

To facilitate proper healing, it is recommended that you take one to two weeks off work or arrange for assistance with young children at home. A companion should drive you home and stay 24-48 hours to assist you in recovering. Pain meds aid swelling and bruising, with a compression garment provided. Sedentary jobs can resume in a few weeks, while you should refrain from using your upper body for 4-6 weeks or as advised by Dr. Savalia, though you may begin lower body exercises after two weeks. Implants will settle over time, enhancing your feminine appearance.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

Are breast implants right for me?

The best candidates for breast augmentation should be in good overall physical and mental health. However, beyond these considerations, it’s also essential that you’re choosing breast enlargement for the right reasons. Dr. Savalia will listen carefully to ensure he understands your personal goals for breast augmentation and then help you to decide on the best way to reach those goals. Breast implants can give you a subtle enhancement, improve symmetry, correct problems like tubular breasts, or give your figure a dramatic boost. Regardless of your specific reasons, breast implants should be something you are choosing for you, and you alone.

Will implants fix droopy breasts?

Some women aren’t as concerned with the size of their breasts as they are with placement. Weight fluctuations, pregnancy and nursing, and the normal aging process can all affect where the breasts sit on your chest, sometimes resulting in a droopy, saggy appearance. It’s a common misconception that breast implants alone will give your breasts the high, firm look they once had. In reality, implants only increase your breasts’ volume. To improve placement, Dr. Savalia may recommend a breast lift either with or without implants for a fuller, perkier profile.

How do I decide on implant and incision placement?

In addition to implant size, we will need to discuss placement of your implants (below or above the muscle) and incision location. There are pros and cons to all of the options, and it is necessary to look at the big picture to make the right decision for you. For example, if your heart is set on anatomically shaped silicone implants, you may also need an inframammary incision (hidden in the natural breast crease) because these implants require slightly larger incisions. If you are very slender and have little natural breast tissue, and want saline implants, Dr. Savalia may suggest submuscular placement to achieve extra tissue coverage. Again, these decisions all come down to what will look best on your body while still meeting your hopes for breast enlargement.

How can I pick the perfect implant size?

Many patients voice concerns about becoming too large or too small. Deciding on the perfect breast size for you depends on several factors: your desired results, your existing anatomy—the width of your ribcage, natural breast tissue, the size of your frame—and how physically active you are, to name a few. Additionally, size isn’t the only consideration—we need to select the shape and profile that will work best on your body. Dr. Savalia’s role as your plastic surgeon includes using his expertise to help you understand how all of these elements work together, so you and he can select the size, shape, and projection that will match your personal aesthetic goals.

What procedures can be combined with breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is typically combined with a breast lift to ensure that the bust appears not only fuller but also more lifted and perky. Mastopexy can also help reposition the nipples in a more pleasing, youthful position. Breast augmentation is also often a component of the mommy makeover, a combination procedure designed to help moms reclaim their bodies after childbirth. A mommy makeover will typically entail a breast augmentation, breast lift, liposuction, tummy tuck, labiaplasty, and facial rejuvenation.

Can I breastfeed after breast augmentation?

Most women can breastfeed after surgery with no problem. Bear in mind that some women might struggle with nursing regardless of whether they have surgery or not. Let Dr. Savalia knows that you plan to have children in the future so that he can tailor your incisions accordingly.

What can I expect from my breast augmentation scars?

Thanks to Dr. Savalia’s meticulously detailed, precise, and conservative approach, scars will heal well and will not be noticeable. Incision location will play a role in scar visibility, so make sure to discuss this topic with your doctor during your consultation.

Can I undergo breast enhancement without implants?

It is possible to undergo breast augmentation using only your own autologous fat, but this allows for only very subtle, modest enhancement of one cup size or less. Most women seek a more dramatic-looking result, which can only be achieved with breast implants. Additionally, women pursuing a fat transfer breast augmentation will need to have ample donor fat to draw from in order to make the treatment viable.
