Breast Implants

  • Saline Implants: These implants are filled with sterile saline water. These can be prefilled with a predetermined size or filled at the time of surgery.
  • Structured Saline Implants: These behave like a soft, silicone gel because they still have the sterile salt water but contain a structure inside. These hold their shape better than traditional implants.
  • Silicone Implants: These implants are filled with a soft, elastic gel substance and come in a variety of shapes.
  • Cohesive Gel Silicone Implants: These implants are filled with a cohesive gel that is a bit thicker than traditional silicone implants. They are also referred to as “gummy bear” or “form stable” implants.
  • Fat Transfer: These implants take fat from a donor area on your body using liposuction and then injects it into the breast area to augment the breasts.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

At Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, our patients’ comfort is very important to us. This procedure is performed under anesthesia to make sure that patients do not feel any pain or discomfort. Using the implants chosen, the surgeon will make an incision around the breast, lift the tissue and create a pocket for the implant. Implants are placed under or on top of the pectoral muscle. Depending on your desired goals and lifestyle, the surgeon will discuss the placement options with you.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

To make sure each patient is informed and prepared for their breast augmentation procedure, the doctor will provide complete instructions for pre-operative as well as post-operative care. After the surgery, you will be given a compression garment to help with swelling and to protect the breast tissue during the vital healing process. Patients may experience some pain or discomfort in their breasts for the first few days following the treatment, but this can be treated effectively with various pain medications. Patients often return to their job after a week following the surgery, but strenuous activity should be limited for the first month following treatment. By scheduling follow-up appointments at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging, we can monitor your healing process and let you know when you can resume full activities.
