Breast Augmentation Q&A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that increases the volume of breasts using implants or fat transfer. The procedure offers you the breast volume and shape you desire with minimal downtime. 

See the Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa providers to help you choose the types of breast augmentation procedures or implants you desire. The medical experts have many years of experience completing breast augmentation.

Is breast augmentation right for me?

The Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa team evaluates your overall health and examines your breasts to determine which breast augmentation procedure best suits your needs. 

During a one-on-one consultation, your and your specialist choose an implant that matches your cosmetic goals. The implants are available in varying profiles, shapes, textures, and sizes. They are either saline or silicone, both of which are FDA-approved. 

You must be at least 22 years old to receive silicone implants and at least 18 years old to receive saline implants. Other breast augmentation options for patients seeking a natural look include gummy bear implants and fat transfer augmentation.

Your surgeon helps you choose the right procedure based on your treatment preferences and desired outcome. 

How should I prepare for my surgery?

To get ready for breast augmentation, you may need to stop taking certain medicines and arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you. You’ll need a pre-surgical exam, which may include blood tests, urinalysis, or a mammogram. Avoid eating and drinking the morning of the procedure. 

What should I expect during breast augmentation?

Before you undergo breast augmentation, you receive general anesthesia to help you fall asleep and avoid discomfort. Your surgeon makes a tiny incision, inserts implants underneath your skin or muscle tissue, and closes the incisions. 

If you receive a fat transfer, your specialist first obtains fat from other areas of your body during liposuction and transfers the fat to your breasts to add volume. 

Dr. Ehret, a board-certified plastic surgeon, completes breast augmentation procedures, as well as breast lifts, breast implant removal, breast revision, and treatment of gynecomastia (development of breast tissue in men).

After your procedure, it’s essential to follow all post-surgery instructions. Get lots of rest, eat healthy foods, drink plenty of fluids, and take medicines as directed. Avoid strenuous activity until given permission, and attend all follow-up visits with your plastic surgeon.
