Breast Augmentation Q & A

by Tarik M. Husain, MD, FACS

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also called mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that most commonly involves an increase in the size of the breasts using implants or a transfer of fat from another area of your body.

Breast augmentation procedures also include restoration of breast size after weight loss or pregnancy and techniques to improve breast symmetry or create rounder breasts.

What types of implants are used for breast augmentation?

Types of breast implants include:

  • Silicone: silicone gel provides a natural feel
  • Saline: filled with sterile salt water, have a firm feel
  • Structured saline: filled with sterile salt water and have an inner structure to create a more natural feel
  • Form-stable: also called gummy bear implants, filled with a thicker silicone gel to create a firmer feel
  • Round: used to create fuller breasts
  • Smooth: softest implants available
  • Textured: used to decrease movement of the implants in the breast tissue

Silicone breast implants may require more frequent follow-ups with Dr. Husain to closely monitor you after your surgery.

Dr. Husain goes over all your breast implant options during your consultation and helps you decide which type of implants will work best for you and your lifestyle.

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?

There are several reasons why women seek breast enhancement surgery, but the decision to have a breast augmentation should be one you make for yourself.

When it’s your choice to change the size and shape of your breasts — whether to boost your self-confidence, restore your body after childbirth, or for any other reason — you’re much more likely to experience a satisfying and happy outcome.

It’s also important to be in good health. You should not get breast augmentation if you’re nursing or pregnant.

Is breast augmentation safe?

Breast augmentation is safe, as demonstrated by the growing number of women who decide to have the procedure each year. Neither the procedure nor the implants affect your breast tissue or your health.

However, it’s essential to follow up with Dr. Husain as recommended to monitor the health and placement of your implants so adjustments can be made if needed.
