Breast Augmentation at South Coast Plastic Surgery

Have you been toying around with the idea of enhancing your bust size – and now you’re ready to make that leap? Then it’s time to discover breast augmentation at South Coast Plastic Surgery in Ladera, CA!

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses implants to increase the size of breasts, as well as create a more symmetrical appearance. Breast augmentation may be ideal for patients who feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts, or who just want to fill out their favorite outfits a little more. Breast augmentation is also an excellent choice for women who have asymmetrical breasts and need surgical help to get a more even appearance. Breast augmentation can even be used to help reconstruct the breast after mastectomy.

How Does It Work?

Breast augmentation works by using implants to manually add volume to the patient’s breasts. These implants (which can be in saline or silicone form) are typically placed below or above the chest muscle, depending on the patient’s aesthetic goals. Incision placement can vary depending on the implants, but you can usually expect your incisions to be located around the areola, within the armpit, and underneath the curve of the breast.

Breast augmentation can also be performed by transferring fat from another part of the body. Using fat for breast augmentation is ideal for someone who wants to just be a cup size larger, but can require more than one round of fat grafting.

The implants immediately increase the patient’s bust size and can help achieve the appearance of naturally fuller and rounder-looking breasts.

Am I a Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

You’re a good candidate for breast augmentation if you are unhappy with the size or appearance of your breasts. The best candidates are healthy nonsmoking individuals with excellent skin laxity and realistic expectations for their procedure. Sometimes a composite breast augmentation can be performed, where an implant is placed and fat is harvested from another part of the body and also injected around the breast to create a more natural look.

What Results Will I See?*

Patients will be able to see initial results right away, as they’ll notice their breasts appear larger immediately after surgery. However, final results usually aren’t visible until about two to three months after surgery, as this is when the majority of swelling may be gone.

Results can be life-changing for women who have felt self-conscious about their breasts. Your breasts may appear fuller and more symmetrical, so don’t be surprised if you feel a surge of self-confidence after your surgery!

What is the Recovery Like?*

The brunt of the recovery takes place over the first month, during which you’ll regularly meet with your plastic surgeon for check-ins. You should expect to take the first week off from work, as this is when you’ll feel most discomfort after your procedure. You should be able to return to work after one week, or two weeks if you have a manual job.

For the majority of the first few weeks, you should plan on wearing compressive bras (like sports bras) to help keep swelling down. We recommend refraining from intercourse for the first two weeks after surgery; you should be cleared for your normal gym routine after about four weeks.
