Augment Your Bust &
Boost Your Confidence

Breast augmentation, often referred to as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size and shape of the breasts. It involves the placement of breast implants, typically filled with silicone gel or saline solution, to increase breast volume and achieve the desired contour. This procedure is suitable for individuals who wish to boost their self-confidence, achieve a fuller bust, restore breast volume lost due to factors like pregnancy or aging, or improve breast symmetry.

At the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, our board-certified plastic surgeons specialize in breast augmentation. During the procedure, incisions are made strategically to minimize scarring, and implants are carefully inserted to achieve the desired size and shape. We offer a range of implant options and techniques to cater to your unique goals. Whether you want subtle changes or a more dramatic transformation, breast augmentation can help you feel more comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Breast Augmentation Treats:

  • Insufficient breast volume
  • Desire for fuller, shapelier breasts
  • Loss of breast volume due to pregnancy or aging
  • Asymmetrical breast size

The Types of Breast Implants Include:

Saline Implants

Saline breast implants are one of the options available for breast augmentation. These implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a sterile saline (saltwater) solution. Saline implants offer several advantages, including adjustability and safety.

During breast augmentation with saline implants, a smaller incision can be made since the implant is inserted empty and then filled with the saline solution once in place. This allows for more flexibility in achieving symmetrical results. Additionally, in the rare event of implant rupture, the saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body. However, some individuals may find that saline implants feel slightly less natural compared to silicone implants.

Silicone Implants

Silicone breast implants are the most popular option for breast augmentation in Newport News and Williamsburg, VA. These implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a cohesive silicone gel. They offer a more natural look and feel compared to saline implants, so they’re used more often.

Silicone implants come in various shapes and sizes, so you can select the shape and size that aligns with your specific goals. The cohesive gel inside these implants closely mimics the feel of natural breast tissue, providing a softer and more natural appearance. Additionally, silicone implants are less prone to rippling or wrinkling, which can occur with saline implants. In the unlikely event of rupture, the cohesive gel remains within the implant shell.

Breast Augmentation Surgery in Hampton Roads

During your breast augmentation in Newport News & Williamsburg at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads, you’ll be under the care of our experienced plastic surgeons. The surgery begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process. You and your surgeon will have discussed the choice between saline or silicone implants before surgery.
Next, small incisions are strategically made, usually in inconspicuous locations, to minimize scarring. These incisions serve as access points for implant placement. The most common incisions for breast augmentation include:

  • Inframammary: Made along the natural fold underneath the breast.
  • Periareolar: Placed around the edge of the areola, where scarring is less noticeable.
  • Transaxillary: Created in the underarm area, leaving no visible scarring on the breast.

For saline implants, they are inserted empty and then filled with a sterile saline solution to the desired size. Silicone implants, on the other hand, are pre-filled with cohesive silicone gel and carefully positioned for the most natural look and feel. Depending on your goals, the implant may be placed underneath the breast tissue but above the chest muscles (subglandular placement) or under the chest muscles (submuscular placement).
Finally, the incisions are closed, and you’ll be monitored as you awaken from anesthesia. You can expect some initial swelling and discomfort, which is completely normal and managed with medication as needed. It’s essential to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery. Over time, you’ll enjoy your enhanced breast appearance and the confidence that comes with it.

Breast Augmentation Recovery Guidelines:

  • Ensure you get adequate rest during the initial days post-surgery to aid in healing.
  • Take prescribed pain medication and antibiotics as directed by your surgeon.
  • Use a post-operative surgical bra or compression garment for the recommended duration.
  • Refrain from vigorous exercise and heavy lifting for several weeks.
  • Follow proper wound care and hygiene instructions to minimize infection risks.
  • Keep all scheduled appointments with your surgeon for monitoring and guidance.
  • Be cautious with arm movements, especially if you have axillary incisions.
  • Promote healing with a healthy diet and adequate hydration.
  • Be vigilant for any unusual swelling, redness, or signs of infection.
  • Don’t hesitate to contact your surgeon if you have concerns or questions.
