Breast Augmentation Information

 

What can I change with a breast augmentation?

Many women choose breast augmentation to increase the size of their breasts, but that’s not the only change you can make.

You can also use breast augmentation to change the shape of your breasts. For example, some women want more rounded or teardrop breasts. Dr. Lee can also make your breasts more symmetrical if one is larger than the other.

If you’ve lost weight or noticed a change in breast volume after pregnancy, Dr. Lee can restore your breast size and created a better lifted breast.

What choices are made before breast augmentation surgery?

When you meet Dr. Lee and his team for a consultation, you’ll learn about several choices you’ll need to make before your breast surgery. He explains each one and offers recommendations based on your body type and the results you want to achieve.

These are some of the key decisions you make before your surgery:

Type of breast implant

There are primarily two types of breast implants, saline, and silicone. Your doctor inserts saline implants while they’re deflated, then fills them with saline solution once they’re in place.

Silicone implants are prefilled with a gel-like material that feels and moves more like your natural breasts.

Both types of implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and they should last more than 10 years.

Implant placement

Dr. Lee can insert the implant in front of or behind your chest muscle. The best placement location depends on your ultimate appearance goals and whether the doctor needs to correct problems like sagging.

Implant surface

Saline and silicone implants both have an outer silicone shell. This shell can have a smooth or textured surface.

Smooth implants move slightly, mimicking natural breasts, while textured implants promote tissue growth that holds them in place.

Incision placement

The incision for breast augmentation is typically made in one of three places — the fold under your breast, around the nipple, or in your armpit. However, Dr. Lee has expertise in breast augmentation using another incision option: transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA).

What is transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA)?

TUBA is an implant procedure in which the incision is made in your belly button. In addition to avoiding an incision near your breasts, the single incision in your belly button doesn’t leave a visible scar. When you undergo a TUBA, you can only use deflated saline implants.
