Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty) by Wave Plastic Surgery
Breast augmentation in most women are done to reshape their body. There are several reasons such as lack of breast tissue development, alterations in body shape after pregnancy or weight loss, asymmetry of their breasts due to congenital reasons, or after breast cancer surgery. This procedure is ideal not only in restoring normal anatomy but also more importantly improving self image and self confidence. The goal of breast surgery is to restore their natural breast volume and shape.
There are different FDA approved implant types and incision techniques for patients. During the consultation, the right implant type and incision and as well as the placement of implant can be discussed to suit each individual patients.
After breast augmentation, it is often possible to return to work within a few days to a week, depending on the type of activities that are required at your job. Special surgical techniques and post operative care instructions are given to minimize complications like bleeding, asymmetry, infections, and capsular contractures. At WAVE plastic surgery, we provide a special protocol to further minimize capsular contracture.

Step 1 - Anesthesia
Medications are administered for your comfort during breast augmentation surgery. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2 - The incision

Incisions vary based on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your particular anatomy, and patient-surgeon preference.
Step 3 - Implant choice: Silicone breast implants or saline breast implants?
Breast size and shape are important, so be honest and open about your expectations when talking with your surgeon.
Implant type and size will be determined not just on your desired increase in size but more importantly on your breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type.
Step 4 - Inserting and placing the breast implant
After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either:
The method for inserting and positioning implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, your body type, and your surgeon’s recommendations.
Step 5 - Closing the incisions
Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time the incision lines will fade.
Step 6 - See the results
The results of breast augmentation surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade.

What is Breast Augmentation?
Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, the procedure involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.
If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, breast augmentation surgery (either breast enhancement or breast enlargement) is a choice to consider. Breast augmentation can:
What Breast Augmentation won’t do:
Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation.
Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.
Is it right for me?
Breast augmentation is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image. Pictures of breast augmentation procedures performed by ASPS Member Surgeons may help you in the decision-making process.
