Breast augmentation is the second most common cosmetic operation performed in the United States today. The decision for surgery, however, is not to be taken lightly. There are many reasons why breast augmentation may be appropriate for you. Some breasts are small or uneven as a result of their natural development. Others may have become smaller following pregnancy or as the result of weight loss. A breast augmentation can balance out your body proportions and improve your silhouette. An enhanced figure can be an important part of feeling both healthy and confident.
The procedure takes place in our Miami office and lasts one to two hours and is typically performed with general anesthesia. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places on the breasts to minimize scar visibility. These may be located in the armpit (transaxillary), in the crease on the underside of the breasts (inframammary), or around the areola-the dark skin around the nipple (periareolar). The breasts are then lifted, creating a pocket into which the implant is inserted.
Breast implants are generally silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Both implant types are very safe and each offers its own advantages. At Miami Surgical Center & MedSpa will help you decide which kind is right for you.Meet Our Doctors
