Why Should I Get a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation offers an opportunity for patients to:

  • Restore fullness and shape to their breasts
  • Enhance their body contour
  • Or to correct for symmetry between the breasts.

Patients choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons:

  • They may feel that their breasts are too small and wish to increase their size or change their projection.
  • Women may want to correct a loss in breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss.
  • Patients may need to replace existing breast implants for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes.

Whichever case describes your situation, we invite you to learn more about our care.

What to Expect in Your Consultation

When you schedule a consultation with Myers Plastic Surgery, you’ll meet directly with Dr. Myers to discuss your breast augmentation. The consultation gives you the opportunity to ask questions about the procedure and to find out if the surgery is right for you.

Dr. Myers will also ensure that you are a good candidate for breast augmentation by evaluating your medical condition, discussing your goals, and conducting a full history and physical. He will ensure that you understand what is and what is not possible with the procedure. For example, if your breasts are not the same size or shape before surgery, it is unlikely that they will be completely symmetrical afterward.

In follow-up visits, Myers Plastic Surgery will certify that you have surgical clearance from your primary physician and that your labs and EKGs are normal. This thorough and detailed process helps to make your procedure as safe and low-risk as possible.

Dr. Myers will oversee the planning, management, and treatment of your surgery. He will perform the procedure throughout and will guide your recovery. Breast augmentation patients find Dr. Myers to be very accessible; expect him to meet with you regularly following your surgery and to be available to you by telephone for your ongoing care.

Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation

Click on a question below to get more information.

Most health insurance companies exclude coverage for cosmetic surgical operations such as the augmentation mammaplasty and any complications that might occur from surgery.  Most insurance covers the first reconstruction operation.  Insurance coverage for future revision, new breast implants, or additional doctor’s visits may not be covered, depending on the policy.  Health insurance premiums may be dropped, premiums may increase, or future coverage may be denied in patients with breast implants. Please carefully review your health insurance subscriber information pamphlet and underwriting policies.

  • Reoperations (additional surgeries), with or without removal of the device
  • Capsular contracture (hardening of the area around the implant).
  • Breast pain
  • Changes in nipple and breast sensation
  • Infection
  • Hematoma/Seroma
  • Rupture with deflation for saline-filled implants
  • Rupture with or without symptoms for silicone gel-filled implants
  • Migration of silicone gel for silicone gel-filled breast implants
  • Need for additional surgeries

If you can feel your ribs with your finger, beneath the breast or at the side of your breast, you will be able to feel the edge of your implant beneath your breast and at the side of your breast.

Currently manufactured implants that strive to achieve durability of the shell have a thicker shell to prolong the life of your implant, and a thicker shell may be easier for you to feel.

Dr. Myers cannot change the quality or thickness of your tissues. If you are thin or have very little breast tissue, you will be more likely to feel your implant.

Conditions which involve sagging of the breast or diminished skin tone (stretch marks) may require additional surgical procedures (breast lift) to reposition the nipple and areola upward and to remove loose skin.

Prior to undergoing your breast augmentation you will need surgical clearance to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. This may include lab testing, adjustment of any medications that you are currently taking, and a general medical examination.

You will also need a baseline MMG before surgery and another MMG 6 months following the surgery to help detect any future changes in your breast.

Smoking increases your risk of complications and wound healing problems. Dr. Myers recommends that you stop smoking 4 weeks prior to undergoing breast augmentation.

Yes.

Saline-filled breast implants are approved for breast augmentation in women 18 years or older.

Silicone gel-filled breast implants are approved for breast augmentation in women 22 years or older.

Dr. Myers offers a variety of incisions and approaches for breast augmentation including:

Inframammary – This incision is less concealed than periareolar and associated with less difficulty than the periareolar incision site when breast feeding.

Periareolar – This incision is the most concealed, but is associated with a higher likelihood of inability to successfully breast feed, as compared to the other incision sites.

Axillary – This incision is less concealed than periareolar and associated with less difficulty than the periareolar incision site when breast feeding.

You will most likely be able to return to work within a few days. Dr. Myers recommends that you avoid any strenuous activities that could raise your pulse and blood pressure for several weeks to allow your body time to heal.
The price of breast augmentation with Dr. Myers varies from patient to patient and depends on the type of implant chosen, surgical approach, and location of the surgery. Once you have finished your consultation with Dr. Myers an individualized plan and quote for surgery will be prepared for you.
