Breast Augmentation is the most popular kind of plastic surgery. The practitioners at Revive Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging Institute are board-certified surgeons, experienced in breast augmentation surgery in Coral Gables.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia or conscious sedation. Your provider will discuss both with you before surgery to determine the best option.
You should have limited risks, so long as you have no history of complications from general anesthesia or sedation. Generally, the procedure lasts two hours or less, and patients go home afterward.
Any healthy patient over the age of 18 is a candidate for saline implants. For silicone implants, the FDA regulates that the patient must be 22 or older to be eligible.
The ideal candidate:
There are two different types of breast augmentation surgery performed at Revive in Coral Gables. The surgery is classified as cosmetic or reconstructive.
Cosmetic Breast Augmentation:
Reconstructive Breast Augmentation:
This surgery is done to increase the size and form of the breast using an implant or patient's own tissue.
An implant made of gel (silicone) or saline is used to enlarge the size of breast as well as enhance certain features of the chest. This surgery is done using a small incision below the breast or around the areola (the pigmented circle around the nipple). Based on the shape of the breast and your goals, we can choose the right implant for you (anatomic vs round, gummy bear vs soft).
At times, it may be possible to use patient’s own fat through liposuction and transfer it to the breast to increase the size of the breast. Feel free to ask us about breast augmentation in Coral Gables using your own tissue.
It is not uncommon to experience pain after breast augmentation surgery. Practitioners experienced with breast implants in Coral Gables may prescribe pain medication to provide relief after surgery.
You will not be able to drive home after surgery, so you must arrange for someone to accompany you.
Total recovery time varies per patient, but expect up to six weeks for a full recovery. Expect sutures to dissolve fully within this time.
Most patients feel well after a week, but experts advise you to avoid any strenuous activity or exercise until you heal.
