What are the Steps of a Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation involves several steps. The first step is a full medical evaluation. At Sadrian Plastic Surgery, we perform breast augmentation at our certified plastic surgery clinic. Every procedure is performed with the most advanced technology and equipment and strict patient safety protocols. The steps are as follows:

  • Step One

    To perform breast augmentation, you will be under anesthesia, typically general anesthesia, or intravenous sedation with local anesthesia.

  • Step Two

    The incisions are placed in the breasts. The incision site and length will vary, based upon the type and size of breast implant selected. The incision may be near the nipple, or placed in the breast crease, or in the armpit.

  • Step Three

    A pocket is surgically created in which to place the implants. This pocket may be beneath breast tissue, or beneath the chest muscle.

  • Step Four

    The implant is carefully and exactly positioned.

  • Step Five

    Your incisions are carefully closed with tiny sutures and bandaged.

Every detail of your procedure will be fully explained to you by Dr. Sadrian and his professional team. We believe that educating our patients, with full and honest communication about every aspect of the procedure is critical to achieve exceptional results. A large majority of our patients come to us through word-of-mouth or have seen Dr. Sadrian’s 5-star rating on realself.com.

FAQ Procedure

What Type of Implant Would be Best for Me?

Breast implant technology has advanced, with many more sizes, shapes, and types of implants than ever before. The two main categories are saline and silicone, with many options available in both types. Generally, silicone implants feel more like natural breast tissue. Saline implants have come a long way as well, with advanced structured saline implants now available.

Structured saline implants have a more natural look and feel than earlier implants. What’s right for you? At Sadrian Plastic surgery we will show you the various types and sizes, and working closely with you, the right implants will be selected. The benefits of each type of implant are as follows:

  • Saline Implants: Saline implants have the advantage of being filled after placement. They are filled with sterile salt water and in the rare case that an implant ruptures, this saline solution is easily and safely absorbed by the body. These implants require a smaller incision, often in the armpit where it will be completely invisible. They are also lighter, and typically cost less.
  • Silicone Implants: These implants have a very natural feel and weight, with the nice bounce of natural breast tissue. They are available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, including modern “teardrop” shaped implants, developed to mimic natural breast tissue shape.

What is the Best Implant Placement?

The decision about where to place the implants, whether under the breast tissue or beneath the breast muscle, will be based upon your physiology and the type of implants used. There is no “best” that suits every patient! Saline implants are often placed either below the muscle or partially below the muscle, as these implants are more likely to reveal rippling or wrinkling, particularly in very slim patients with little body fat.

What Anesthetic is Used for Breast Augmentation Surgery?

The type of anesthesia, whether general or intravenous sedation, will be discussed with you so you know exactly what to expect, and which type would be most appropriate for your surgery.

Once the anesthesia is administered, your procedure will begin. Incision placement varies, based upon the type of implant that has been chosen for your enhancement. The three types of incisions commonly used in breast augmentation are covered in the next section.

Where Will the Incisions Be Located?

There are several surgical approaches for breast augmentation surgery:

  • Periareolar: This incision is made around the areola of the nipple, and once healed the scar naturally blends with the darker nipple color.
  • Inframammary: This incision is placed in the natural crease below the breast.
  • Transaxillary: This incision is in the fold of the armpit, and appropriate for patients who have selected saline implants, as they are filled after placement.

Your implants will be placed through one of these types of incisions. They may be placed under the pectoral muscle, called a “submuscular” placement, or behind the breast tissue, called “subglandular,” or partially beneath the muscle. After the implants are put in place, the incisions will be closed with tiny stitches.
