Am I A Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

The choice to undergo mammoplasty (breast aug) surgery is personal. If you are contemplating this surgery, it is important you do it for yourself and nobody else. You should be physically healthy with breasts that are fully developed and be the right age to get implants. If you are dissatisfied with the overall appearance of your breasts because they appear flat, you may benefit from this surgery. Moreover, if your breasts have changed due to weight loss or pregnancy, this procedure can give them increased shape and fullness. It is also a welcomed option if you lift weights or have little to no original breast tissue.

What to Expect from Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is an outpatient procedure that requires general anesthesia. Following the incision, either a saline or silicone implant will be moved through the incision and placed into a pocket created for it, and then secured into its proper position. After this process, the incision is carefully closed with sutures. You will be taken into a recovery area and carefully monitored prior to being released. We will send you home wearing a compression garment to assist with swelling. Several days afterward, the bruising and swelling will slowly go away, and the breasts should begin to feel normal as they adapt to their new position. This surgery results in a natural-looking, gorgeous outcome.

Breast Augmentation FAQS

Is breast augmentation a safe surgery? Breast augmentation does come with a low risk of complications. Be sure to discuss all potential complications with Dr. Hwang prior to your procedure. Our surgical team is proud to use the latest techniques and technology to minimize risks during surgery and recovery. We have a high success rate with breast procedures, and patients are usually very happy with their results.

Do breast augmentation results appear natural? The team at Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery are experts in the field of natural-appearing breast augmentation. Our goal is to create outcomes that look and feel as natural as possible for each patient. The size, shape, and placement of your implants are all carefully considered to ensure results that suit your specific goals and body type.

Will I need to have my implants replaced? Most women do not need to have their implants replaced, but it is possible that you may eventually require a second surgery at our West Hills, CA clinic. This is usually due to changes in your body or natural aging. Other women simply change their minds or prefer to have a smaller or larger size after a few years. Implant revision surgery is possible in these cases.

Do implants cause breast cancer? The FDA is investigating a link between implants and ALCL (anaplastic large cell lymphoma). This is not breast cancer, but a cancer of the immune cells. According to WHO (the World Health Organization), implant-related ALCL is very rare, and when caught early, it is highly treatable. Dr. Brian Hwang encourages all patients with implants to get frequent screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery if you notice any concerns, like swelling.

How much does breast augmentation cost? Your total cost for breast augmentation will vary depending on your implant choices and if you are having any other surgeries. When your treatment plan is made in your consultation, Dr. Brian Hwang will go over estimated costs and financing options. Brian Hwang, MD, Plastic Surgery also has a few financing options available to help make breast augmentation more cost-effective.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation? Your treatment plan may include implants, a lift, or both. A breast lift removes loose skin and improves the position of the breasts, while implants enhance the shape and size. In your consultation with Dr. Brian Hwang, he will listen to your needs and goals before explaining which treatment option may provide the results you seek. An augmentation and lift are often part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after breastfeeding and pregnancy.
