What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery in which implants are used to enlarge and reshape the natural breasts.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is much more than increasing the size of the breasts. Undergoing this surgery can:

  • Enhance the size of naturally small breasts
  • Restore volume to breasts after weight loss, pregnancy, or aging
  • Provide a more cohesive and attractive contour to the body
  • Establish symmetry between uneven or misshapen breasts
  • Boost self-confidence and feminine aesthetic

Breast augmentation can give you the sexy contour you desire. At VK Cosmetic Surgical Arts, we are committed to helping you attain your ideal aesthetic vision.

What Are My Breast Augmentation Options in Miami, FL?

Dr. Victoria Karlinsky knows her Miami breast augmentation patients deserve a unique, personalized experience. Cosmetic surgery is never a one-size-fits-all, which is why VK Cosmetic Surgical Arts offers a wide range of breast augmentation options so you can feel confident that your breast augmentation journey is completely your own.

During your consultation, you can discuss your breast augmentation vision with one of our board-certified cosmetic surgeons, who will advise you on the best path.

Breast Implant Options

There are multiple breast implant options for you to consider while you plan your breast augmentation. As breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries, breast implant type, size, shape, and placement options continue to improve and diversify.

Breast implant material is one of the first factors that patients start considering. VK Cosmetic Surgical Arts offers the following implants for your personalized cosmetic goals.

Saline breast implants consist of a silicone outer shell filled with a saltwater solution. Saline implants remain popular for their ability to be filled after the silicone shell has been inserted, resulting in smaller incisions than other options.

Additionally, saline breast implants are considered lower risk since your body will absorb the inner solution in the case of a rupture. Saline breast implants are approved for patients as young as 18 and are often less expensive than other options.

Silicone breast implants consist of a pre-filled silicone outer shell with cohesive, medical-grade silicone. Because the implants come pre-filled, a slightly longer incision is necessary.

Silicone breast implants are softer and have a more natural movement, resembling real breast tissue. Many patients claim they look and feel like natural breasts.

Breast Implant Shape

Round implants are sphere-shaped and have equal curves on the top and bottom. This implant type often results in rounder, more prominent breasts for a more dramatic look.

Anatomical implants resemble the natural shape of breasts, like a teardrop or pear — narrow at the top and fuller on the bottom. This is a great option for those wanting more natural breast augmentation.

Breast Implant Projection

Your breast implant profile refers to the shape of the implant, particularly the base diameter and projection. Four options are available to enhance your breasts and improve your overall figure.

Low profile projects less from the chest but has a broad base. These are ideal for women with broad chest walls.

Moderate profiles have a more narrow base and project moderately from the chest. These are best for women with moderate chest walls.

High profiles feature a smaller base with more significant projection. These are perfect for women with more narrow chest walls.

Ultra-high profiles have the most narrow base with the highest projection available. These are ideal for very petite women.

Breast Augmentation Incision Options

When it comes to incision and technique, many women are primarily concerned with scarring after breast augmentation. No surgical procedure can guarantee zero scarring, but at VK Cosmetic Surgical Arts, our cosmetic surgeons will guide you on the incision option that will work best for your goals, including minimizing future scarring.

Inframammary: Incisions are placed along the inframammary line, where the bottom of the breast meets the ribcage. This placement hides potential scarring along the natural crease, has a smaller risk of infection, and is more likely to maintain the patient’s ability to breastfeed as the milk ducts are unaffected.

Periareolar: Implants are inserted into a crescent-shaped incision along the upper portion of the areola. The darker skin of the areola can potentially hide post-operative scarring.

Transaxillary: Implants are inserted into an incision in the armpit, with no visible scarring on the breasts.

Breast Implant Placement

In addition to the above factors, there are two different placement options for breast augmentation.

  • Submuscular placement involves inserting the breast implant underneath the chest muscle. This is the preferred method, as it provides better coverage and has less chance of capsular contracture, with a more natural result.
  • Subglandular placement consists of placing the implant above the chest muscle. This option is better for women who are bodybuilders or who have ptosis (sagging breasts) and do not want a breast lift. Subglandular is associated with an easier healing process, although breast implants have a higher chance of rippling or capsular contracture.

These options add to your unique and customized Miami breast augmentation experience. Our surgeons will happily discuss all options with you, depending on your eligibility and interest.

Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting

This technique does not use an implant at all — instead, fat from your body is harvested and injected into the breasts to increase volume and shape. Breast augmentation with fat grafting will not be able to achieve a dramatic increase in size like implants, but it is becoming increasingly popular as a more natural solution. It is also a two-in-one treatment, as fat grafting can eliminate fat from problem areas to redirect it in the breasts, providing a slimming and curve-enhancing result.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation can be an exciting and empowering experience. At VK Cosmetic Surgical Arts, we strive to provide you with the best surgical plan that suits your needs. If you are unhappy with your breasts’ size, shape, or symmetry and want a more feminine, sexy profile, breast augmentation might be for you.

Candidates for breast augmentation should be in good health, not smoke or be willing to quit, have reasonable expectations of results, and have a healthy view of their bodies. Breast augmentation is a deeply personal decision and should only be done to improve the patient’s self-confidence and desires.

How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?

Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia for optimum comfort. The nature of your exact procedure will depend on the type of implant, the technique, and if you combine your breast augmentation with any other procedures, like a breast lift.

Each procedure varies, but breast augmentation generally takes anywhere from one to two hours. This is usually an outpatient procedure, but you must have someone drive you home as you will be groggy and possibly nauseous as the anesthesia wears off.

How Long Is Breast Augmentation Recovery?

You will experience bruising and swelling, requiring you to rest as much as possible for the first week. Most patients can expect to regain mobility and return to work after one week. You can resume normal activities after six weeks.

However, each patient is different, and it is important to follow all post-operative instructions provided by your surgeon.

When Will I See My Breast Augmentation Results?

Breast augmentation provides immediate, long-lasting results. Your breasts will change as you heal, with swelling and bruising gradually diminishing. As your muscles adjust to the implants, your breasts settle and expand into a more natural, voluptuous position. The whole process may take anywhere from three to six months.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

How much does breast augmentation cost in Miami?

The cost of breast augmentation in Miami varies depending on implant prices, geographical location, anesthesia fees, facility fees, and surgical fees.

If you are combining any procedures with your breast augmentation, like a breast lift, this will also impact the cost.

After your consultation, your surgeon will give you a price estimate based on the surgical plan you create.

What procedures can I combine with my breast augmentation?

Many women decide to combine procedures with breast augmentation. Breast lifts are ideal for sagging, drooping breasts due to weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. During a breast lift, your surgeon removes excess skin, repositioning the breasts to a higher position on the chest for a more youthful, perky appearance.

What happens if I’m not happy with my breast augmentation?

Sometimes prior breast augmentations don’t go the way you want. If you are experiencing dissatisfaction with a previous breast augmentation, you have options. VK Cosmetic Surgical Arts offers breast implant revision, which can revise or improve the results of a previous surgery.

Will I be able to breastfeed after my breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation does not always affect your ability to breastfeed, but surgical procedures always have risks. Different incision types have higher risks for breastfeeding complications than others. For example, an inframammary incision has a lower chance of affecting your breastfeeding ability, while a periareolar incision has a higher risk.

Since there are no guarantees, it is recommended that you wait to have your breast augmentation until you have finished breastfeeding.

Which breast implant option is the safest?

Saline and silicone implants have a high safety rating, although saline is often considered the safer option because of its ability to be safely absorbed by the body. Additionally, saline breast implant ruptures are more noticeable as they will visibly deflate or look misshapen.

Silicone implants do not always signal a rupture; their thicker, more cohesive material does not always leave the shell. If you choose silicone implants, you are at no greater risk for infection, but it is advised that you schedule an MRI exam every three years to detect any ruptures.
