About Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation by Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Frank L. Stile in Las Vegas, NV at Stile Aesthetics is a cosmetic surgery that is performed to enlarge the breasts for a number of reasons. These reasons may include: hypomastia (small breasts), restoration of lost breast volume or size following weight loss, pregnancy or aging, and correction of volume or size differences. Breast enlargement is accomplished by inserting a silicone breast implant (a.k.a. gel implant, cohesive gel implant, or "gummy bear" implant), or saline filled breast implant either behind the breast tissue, under the chest muscle, or the dual-plane method most often utilized by Dr. Stile. In the dual-plane method, the upper 2/3 portion of the implant is placed below the pectoralis major muscle and lower 1/3 above the chest muscle. This technique may result in a breast that is not only very natural looking, but one that feels soft to the touch. Additionally, the breast moves in a more natural way during physical activity.

Dr. Stile employs incisions for placement of these implants that heal as inconspicuously as possible, usually around the lower edge of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). Breast implants are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, and types. Implant selection in addition to size, will depend on your preferences, your anatomy, and Dr. Stile’s recommendation. At your consultation, Dr. Stile will guide you to help you obtain the ideal breast shape, one that will both complement and enhance your body proportions.

Ideal Candidates

Patients who want breast augmentation surgery may be ideal candidates if they meet some of the following criteria:

  • They are unhappy with the current size and shape of their breasts
  • They have lost the firmness of the breast because of weight loss, pregnancy, or breast-feeding
  • One breast is larger than the other
  • The size of the breasts is not in proportion to the rest of the body
  • To restore the shape of the breasts after a mastectomy or lumpectomy

What to Expect

Before you have breast augmentation surgery, you will have a complete physical examination. Overall good health is necessary for a successful result. When deciding which type of implant to use, keep in mind that age can be a determining factor. One of the distinct differences between saline and silicone breast implants is the age restriction. Patients must be 18 years or older in age in order to receive saline implants, and at least 21 for silicone. Existing native breast tissue, breast shape, and skin elasticity are other factors to take into consideration. Measurements will be taken of the breasts, as well as the chest wall, including base width, to help determine the best implant type. This evaluation will help the surgeon develop the best breast augmentation plan.

Anticipated Results

After surgery, patients can expect to feel sore, so they will be given post-surgical care instructions and pain medication may be prescribed. Each augmentation patient will leave in a sports bra and clean surgical dressings. There will be some bruising and swelling for about 1 – 2 weeks. It is recommended for patients to take it easy for those 2 weeks to heal and rebuild strength after surgery. Most patients experience a recovery between 6 – 8 weeks. Most women find that their breasts look and feel natural within just a few short months.
