Breast Augmentation / Breast Implants

Breast augmentation can enhance the shape, size, and contour of your breasts. Breast augmentation not only enhances the breasts, it can also help treat breast asymmetries and irregularities. After pregnancy or breast feeding, many women seek breast implant surgery to increase confidence and femininity or as a means to fit more comfortably into clothing or swimwear. If a woman feels her breasts are smaller than she would like, breast augmentation can help create shapely, fuller breasts. At Asaadi Plastic Surgery, we offer natural-looking saline breast implants for breast augmentation surgery.

What Is Breast Enhancement?

Breast augmentation surgery uses implants to shape and size breasts. Dr. Asaadi only uses saline implants for breast augmentation in our NJ and NYC practices due to their natural feel, look, and shape. Saline breast implants are comprised of a saltwater solution for natural-looking results. Your breast size can be increased by inserting a saline breast implant behind each of your breast muscles, creating shapely, fuller breasts. During breast augmentation surgery, saline breast implants will be placed through inframammary incisions. These incisions are expertly placed under the natural crease of your breast. Inframammary incisions are placed discreetly for more aesthetically pleasing results.

Dr. Asaadi only uses the inframammary incision when performing breast augmentation surgery. The inframammary approach reduces the risk of capsular contracture, which is the term that is given to scar tissue that can form around the incision of some breast implants and cause the breasts to harden. When breast augmentation is performed through the areola, the risk of capsular contracture is increased. Capsular contracture also may cause discomfort, a feeling of tightness, or breasts to appear less natural-looking. The length of your breast augmentation procedure will vary depending on your individual needs, but the majority of breast augmentation surgeries may be completed in 1-2 hours.

Your breast augmentation will begin with the placement of inframammary incisions beneath each breast. Careful consideration is taken to ensure discreet placement of these incisions for the most natural-looking results. While there are different methods of placing a breast implant, Dr. Asaadi will only use a submuscular approach. A submuscular approach is when a saline breast implant is placed behind the muscle of your breast. This approach may reduce interference in future mammograms.

After the placement of your saline breast implants, your inframammary incisions with carefully be sutured. Plastic surgeons use 2 types of stitches when placing sutures after your breast augmentation surgery. If you are receiving traditional stitches, they will be removed 1-2 weeks after your breast implant surgery. On the other hand, if you are receiving dissolvable stitches, these sutures will naturally be processed by your body in the weeks following your breast enhancement surgery.

After the application of sutures, you will be given a soft surgical bra to wear that will provide comfortable support for your healing breasts in the weeks following your breast augmentation surgery. A surgical bra with proper support will expedite the healing process after your breast surgery.

Dr. Asaadi stresses that breast augmentation should be performed perfectly the first time to avoid complications later in life. The correct implant size and shape should be chosen based on the individual patient. Breast augmentation should never be performed haphazardly. Dr. Asaadi seeks perfection to ensure patients happiness in terms of longevity.

What Should I Expect Before My Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Your breast augmentation consultation will begin with a breast exam to evaluate what you would like to achieve with breast implants. Dr. Asaadi will also assess your general medical health and medical history to plan your breast augmentation procedure. You may also be given a mammogram prior to your breast enhancement to ensure the health of your breasts. General anesthesia will be used during breast augmentation to maximize comfort. The ideal candidate for breast augmentation surgery is looking to improve the shape, contours, and size of their breasts.

During your breast augmentation consultation, your breasts will be measured to determine appropriately sized breast implants that will best fit your frame and meet your individual goals. You will be able to see and evaluate the size of the saline breast implants that we offer at Asaadi Plastic Surgery during your breast augmentation surgery consultation. Saline breast implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that you can choose the breast implant that will provide you the most pleasing results.

Certain medications may need to be stopped prior to your breast enhancement procedure, such as aspirin. To prepare the day of your breast augmentation, we suggest you wear loose, comfortable clothing with no jewelry or makeup. It is important that a friend or family member is present with you, as you will not be able to drive immediately following breast augmentation. You may also need assistance at home for the first 2-3 days following your breast enhancement.

What Should I Expect After My Breast Augmentation Surgery?

As each patient is different, so is each individual’s rate of healing. It is important to give your body the proper rest it needs and avoid lifting or bending after breast augmentation surgery. Common breast augmentation side effects include breast pain, discomfort, and soreness. Dr. Asaadi does not have patients with capsular contracture, breast implant leakage, bleeding, or hematoma. Following breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Asaadi, you will not need drains or dressings. Instead, you will be given a soft, supportive bra to wear following breast augmentation.

Proper hygiene is very important following breast augmentation. We suggest you do not swim or take a bath until your incision sites have properly healed. Regular showering is permitted 24 hours after your breast enhancement surgery. Resting after your breast augmentation is extremely important. All strenuous activity must be stopped until Dr. Asaadi feels as though your breasts have properly healed.

It is common that your breasts may be sensitive in the weeks following your breast augmentation. Breast swelling is normal and will go down as you recover from your breast enlargement surgery. We stress that you do not resume any physical activities for 1 month following your breast enhancement procedure, as this can delay your recovery and cause damage to your healing breasts. Dr. Asaadi uses the most advanced techniques when performing breast augmentation surgery, which results in minimal pain and discomfort and a shorter recovery time.
