What is Breast Augmentation? 

Breast augmentation at Sanctuary Cosmetic Center is a procedure in which your cosmetic surgeon surgically places breast implants under the skin or muscles in your breasts. The result is an improvement in the size and shape of your breasts. Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery performed yearly and has a long and established safety track record.

Am I A Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation? 

To find out if you’re a good candidate for breast augmentation, your provider will discuss your medical history and desired outcome. They’ll also complete a physical exam.  

Breast augmentation might be a good option if you: 

  • Have breast asymmetry 
  • Are you unhappy with the shape or size of your breasts 
  • Are in good overall health 
  • Understand the risks and benefits of surgery 
  • Have misaligned nipples and areolas  
  • Experience low self-esteem because of your breasts 
  • Aren’t currently pregnant or nursing 
  • Desire better body proportions 

For many women, breast augmentation improves the way they feel about their bodies, which is beneficial for their overall physical and mental health.  

Benefits of Breast Augmentation 

Breast augmentation is extremely customizable. During a consultation, your surgeon will discuss various breast augmentation options to find a good fit for your needs. Sanctuary Cosmetic Center offers saline breast implants, silicone implants, and autologous fat injections, or fat grafting, using fat from other areas of your body. Each option has benefits, and our team will help you select the best option. 

The Breast Augmentation Procedure 

To get ready for breast augmentation, follow your pre-surgery instructions. You’ll meet with the Sanctuary Cosmetic Center team to choose the type and size of breast implants you desire. Avoid taking certain medications before surgery if your surgeon recommends it, and don’t smoke. Avoid foods and drinks on the morning of surgery. 

Just before breast augmentation, you’ll receive general anesthesia, so you’re asleep during the procedure. Your surgeon will make an incision at the curve of your areola or along the lower fold of your breast. They’ll gently insert breast implants and close the incision.  

During autologous fat transfer, your surgeon will complete liposuction in other areas of your body and inject the fat into your breasts. After breast augmentation, you’ll recover in a separate room before returning home to recover.

Breast Augmentation Results 

Complete recovery after breast augmentation often takes about 7-10 days. During this time, avoid strenuous physical activity and take medications as prescribed. Follow all post-surgery instructions and attend any follow-up appointments with your surgical team. With proper aftercare, breast augmentation can last for many years.
