Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is for women who want to enhance the size, shape, and position of their breasts. Breast augmentation uses silicone- or saline-filled implants to boost your cup size and create firmer, more symmetrical breasts. The results are natural and create a pleasing breast contour.

Which type of implant should I choose for breast augmentation?

Dr. Born performs a thorough physical examination and review of your goals when recommending a breast implant. Both silicone and saline implants are quite safe. 

Saline

Saline-filled implants are shells of silicone filled with sterile salt water. Dr. Born may fill them prior to implantation or fill them during the operation. 

Silicone

Silicone implants are made of a plastic gel. Some women prefer the feel of silicone implants, claiming they feel more natural.  

Dr. Born helps you make an informed decision about the type of implant you choose by considering your goals in terms of shape, placement, and size.

What happens during breast augmentation?

Dr. Born performs breast augmentation while you’re under general anesthesia. The surgery typically takes 1-2 hours to complete. 

He begins by making a small incision along the underside of your nipple. He then creates a “pocket”  within your breast tissue for the breast implant to sit. The placement of your implant may be above or below the pectoral muscle.

Some women choose to undergo a breast lift along with their augmentation. This surgery restores your breasts’ firmness and height, which can be compromised after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, and time. 

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation?

Women age 18 and older are eligible for breast augmentation as long as they’re in generally good health and a nonsmoker. Reasons why you might consider breast augmentation include:

  • Genetically small breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Breasts that have lost shape and volume because of pregnancy or weight loss

Some women simply prefer the look of a larger cup size and have breast augmentation to feel more confident in their bodies. 

What should I consider when choosing a surgeon to perform breast augmentation?

You want a surgeon who has an artful eye for body proportions and the skills necessary to successfully complete your procedure.
