Breast Augmentation Q & A

Elevation

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical process that uses your body’s own fat or breast implants to increase the size of your breasts. Women choose breast augmentation for many different reasons, but the core goal is to improve self-confidence by feeling good about your body’s contours.

Breast augmentation can do more than just increase the size of your breasts. It can also create a more appealing balance between the contours of your breasts and hips, or replace volume lost after pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Some women pursue breast augmentation after undergoing a full or partial mastectomy. Traumatic injury can also change the size or shape of your breasts.

No matter why you’re seeking breast augmentation, you can rest assured that the team at Elevation Plastic Surgery & Med Spa is here to support you through this exciting journey.

 

Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, so it’s important that you’re in good overall health before the process begins. Your body is better able to heal when you’re healthy, and your recovery process will be far easier to manage.

It’s also important that you go into the process with realistic expectations, which is why Dr. Griner works with you to discuss what breast augmentation can and can’t do. In some cases, additional or alternative treatments can help you reach your goals. For example, if you have significant sagging but adequate volume, a breast lift might yield better results than breast augmentation.

 

What type of breast implants are available?

There are a number of different types of implants available, and Dr. Griner guides you in choosing the implants that are right for your needs.

Saline

Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution. These are a popular option because the implant filling can be safely absorbed and expelled by your body in the event of a rupture.

Structured saline

These implants have an internal structure that gives them additional support, but most of the volume comes from a saline solution.

Silicone

Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel that has a more natural feel. It’s important to have silicone breast implants checked from time to time to ensure they’re intact and properly positioned.

Gummy bear implants

Gummy bear implants are firmer than other options and maintain their form. They are larger at the bottom and tapered at the top to create a realistic shape.

Breast implants also have different exterior textures. Some are smooth and move freely, while others have texture so that scar tissue can form to secure a bond.
