Breast Augmentation in Newport Beach & Orange County

Your decision to choose breast augmentation in Newport Beach is an intimately personal one. Dr. Savalia will work closely with you to help you come to the best decisions about surgical breast enhancement. Dr. Savalia takes a conservative approach to breast augmentation and achieving a naturally enhanced appearance, without sacrificing beautiful breast shape. By incorporating Vectra® 3D Imaging, we can show you possible options for breast shape and size and help you select the perfect implants to enhance your figure.

Is breast augmentation with implants right for me?

Breast augmentation is ideal for women who want to increase their breast size, or for those whose breasts have changed in size and appearance after pregnancy and breastfeeding or following weight loss. Breast implants enhance your figure by adding volume, and both silicone gel and saline implants are available for a higher level of customization.

The best candidates for surgery are in good health physically and mentally and have realistic expectations about the results. We understand that undergoing breast enhancement is a big decision, and we will provide you with all the resources to feel confident in the choice you make.

Is this you?

These are some of the common reasons women consider 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 want to balance my body proportions
  • I’m self-conscious about how I look in a swimsuit or other revealing clothing

Dr. Savalia was highly recommended. Most important was knowing that he could achieve the look that I was going for. I LOVE my results! And my mom says that it really fits my figure.

3D imaging: Visualizing your results in 3D

During a breast augmentation consultation, we offer Vectra 3D imaging so you can see what specific implant types and sizes may look like on your body frame before scheduling surgery. We will spend all the time you need discussing implant size and shape and which incision options are involved with a focus on helping you achieve the look you envision.

The breast augmentation procedure

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

After your breast augmentation

After your procedure, you will be provided with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure you heal as smoothly as possible. The first 24 to 48 hours after your surgery are likely to be the most uncomfortable, with your breasts feeling swollen and tender. Most of our patients are ready to resume their regular daily activities after about a week. We will carefully track your recovery and have you return to our office for follow-up appointments. We are always available to respond to any questions or concerns.

All about breast implants

There are many breast implant options available for women who choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery. Breast implants have been extensively studied and tested, and the resulting research and new developments allow women the choice of many highly-advanced options. Dr. Savalia uses only FDA-approved implants in augmentation and reconstruction procedures.

Breast implant types

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

Silicone gel breast implants

  • This implant type has been approved by the FDA for breast augmentation in the United States since 200
  • 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 when 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 pre-filled by the manufacturer and may require a slightly larger incision than is needed in placing saline implants
  • Silicone gel implants are FDA-approved for women age 22 and older for primary breast augmentation

Saline breast implants

  • This implant type is filled with sterile saltwater, which is compatible with the human body
  • Saline implants are filled after being placed, which allows for a slightly smaller incision for placement and adjustment of volume after insertion
  • If the implant should leak and saline is released, it is absorbed by your body, safely
  • This type of implant is more likely to develop aesthetic imperfections such as wrinkling, rippling, double-bubble, and bottoming out
  • Compared to silicone gel implants, saline implants look and feel less like natural breast tissue
  • This is the only implant type approved for women between the ages of 18–21 for primary breast augmentation

Implant shapes and sizes

Round implants

Round implants are circular and slightly flat, and the material inside responds to gravity, just like natural breast tissue. These implants do not control the shape of the breast; instead, they “fill” the breast. In general, they are most appropriate for women who have a nice natural breast shape but want additional volume. Round implants come in a wide range of widths and levels of projection. Our Vectra 3D imaging system will allow you to see how each type will appear on your frame.

Anatomical (teardrop-shaped) implants

Anatomical or “teardrop” shaped implants are designed with an increased amount of fill material on the bottom, to more accurately mimic the natural shape and slope of the breasts. The implants hold their shape and control the shape of the breast rather than “fill” the breast. These implants can be the right choice for women who have a relatively flat breast without a natural slope, who would like to have a small-to-modest increase in volume.

I was interested in breast augmentation, but wasn’t going for that outrageous look. I had lots of concerns and I was fearful. Dr. Savalia took that away. He made the whole experience so easy.

Let's Talk

There are several things to discuss about implants, including profile and shell texture. Most commonly, “teardrop” or “anatomical” implants have a textured outer shell to reduce the chance the implant will rotate within the breast pocket.

Dr. Savalia’s recommendation will be based on what is right for you after evaluating your anatomy and carefully listening to your goals for the surgery. All aspects of breast implants are covered in detail in your private your consultation.

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.

Should I choose saline or silicone?

Although either saline or silicone implants will provide beautiful results, Dr. Savalia will fully explain the benefits each implant type has to offer:

Saline implants consist of a sterile saltwater solution encased in a silicone shell. They can be used for cosmetic breast enlargement in women 18 and over and are less expensive than their silicone counterparts. Since saline implants can be inserted empty and filled after placement, smaller incisions are placed during surgery.

Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel that has the consistency of soft jelly. These implants are currently the more popular choice. Most women think their texture feels more like organic breast tissue.

Another type of silicone implant is the anatomically shaped silicone gel implant, often called “gummy bear” implants. These are teardrop-shaped rather than round, filled with a form-stable silicone gel with the consistency of gummy bear candy—firm, yet yielding. Gummy bear implants can deliver very natural-looking results, particularly in breast reconstruction.

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. With our Vectra 3D imaging, the guesswork is taken out of the process. With Vectra 3D, you can view an image of your own body to see how you will look with different implant sizes and profiles.
