Breast Augmentation Q & A

by Patrick Obasi, MD, FACS

What is breast augmentation surgery?

Breast augmentation, also called an augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure that helps to improve fullness, volume, shape, and position of the breasts through implants. Sometimes Dr. Obasi can also use fat harvested from other areas of your body to increase the breast size or add shape.

Patients may opt for a breast augmentation due to the natural sagging that comes with age or simply to achieve a bigger cup size. If you’ve had a mastectomy, you may also want breast implants as part of a breast reconstruction operation.

While breast augmentation is usually more about increasing the size of the breasts, you may also opt for a breast lift to achieve a more lifted, youthful look.

What types of implants are there?

You and Dr. Obasi determine which type of implant will give you the shape and size for your goals. Your options include:

  • Saline: A liquid that exists in your body naturally; a good choice for smaller implants
  • Silicone: These implants feel soft and natural
  • Gummy bear: A firm silicone implant that won’t deflate if the protective shell ruptures
  • Round: Silicone implants either have a teardrop shape or a more noticeable top curve
  • Smooth: Smooth implants have a supple feel and more natural movement.
  • Textured: Internal scar tissue adheres to textured implants
  • Silicone: These implants feel soft and natural

Dr. Obasi always uses the Keller Funnel to place all silicone implants. This is a no-touch technique that prevents infections and helps to easily insert the silicone implants into the breasts through very small incisions.

What is recovery like?

After surgery, your breasts will be wrapped in bandages and gauze or a specialized bra that supports recovery and healing.

You’ll schedule a follow-up appointment with Dr. Obasi, and you may be given a prescription for medication to help you manage your pain or prevent infection. You might be required to follow specific instructions for cleaning your incisions or changing your wound dressings.

Pain should subside after a few days, but you’ll most likely feel a decent amount of tenderness and swelling for several weeks. Once the swelling subsides, you’ll be able to see and enjoy the new and improved shape of your breasts.
