Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Augmentation

What type of bra should I wear after surgery and for how long?

You’ll want to wear an underwire bra beginning immediately after your surgery, which you’ll be fitted with in the recovery room, after the procedure. We recommend a well-fitting underwire with cups, which helps to support the weight of the implants over time and prevents potential drooping.

When exercising, a sports bra is recommended. We don’t recommend wearing a sports bra all the time or overnight, however, as a sports bra is compressive and doesn’t support an ideal post-surgical breast shape.

What are the differences between saline and silicone implants?

We mostly prefer silicone gel implants, which have several advantages over saline. Not only do they look and feel more natural than saline, but they tend to ripple and wrinkle less often than their saline counterparts. Even further, silicone implants don’t leak, meaning they last longer than saline implants.

Saline implants do cost less than silicone, and in patients with a greater amount of breast tissue and body fat, the rippling is less of an issue. The saline implant can also be placed through a slightly shorter incision, since it is placed when it is empty and then filled. The silicone implants require a longer incision because they are filled when they are manufactured.

Is it safe to breast-feed after a breast augmentation?

Breast implants do not interfere with breast-feeding, so you’ll be safe to breast-feed with either saline or silicone implants. If your breast augmentation is performed with an incision around the areola, this can interfere with the breast ducts and their continuity with the nipple, so we’ll recommend an alternate incision if you’re interested in breastfeeding after your augmentation.

Will a breast augmentation make my stretch marks better?

Unfortunately, stretch marks are permanent. The implant will fill out the skin, and in most cases this does improve the appearance of stretch marks. In some cases, the loose skin of the breast can make the stretch marks more noticeable. Typically, we only see patients younger than 20 developing new stretch marks after an augmentation, meaning additional stretch marks are fairly unusual.

Will I have a large gap between my breasts after a breast augmentation?

The distance between breast implants, which will determine how much cleavage you have after a breast augmentation, is determined by your anatomy. If your breasts are far apart before surgery, you will most likely have a wider space between them after surgery. If your breasts are close together before surgery, the implants will be closer together after surgery.

Whether the implants are under the muscle will also affect this since the muscle attaches to the breastbone. If the muscle happens to attach at the outer edge of a wide breastbone the implants will be farther apart.

What is the best procedure for me? I have saggy breasts and large areolas.

In most cases if you have saggy breasts, you’ll want to undergo a breast lift, which improves the shape of the breast and restores a more youthful look. At the same time, the areola diameter is reduced. In most cases, a breast implant is placed to restore volume to the upper part of the breast, while also adding a bit of projection and shape.

Types of Breast Implants: Saline or Silicone Gel?

One of the primary decisions to make before this procedure is the type and size of your breast implants. Our practice uses both saline and silicone gel breast implants, giving you the ability to pick the type of implant that will best suit your lifestyle and bring you the cosmetic results you desire.

Silicone gel implants, approved by the FDA in late 2006, tend to feel more natural than saline, and also wrinkle and ripple less frequently than saline implants. We use silicone gel implants in the majority of our breast augmentation patients.


New “Gummy” Implants

Natrelle’s INSPIRA® round gel breast implants are designed for increased fullness and a soft feel. They’ve been given the nickname “Gummy” because when cut in half, the implant is stable and retains its shape, enabling you to enjoy a firmer, more supple bust. Many advocates of “gummy” implants believe they look and feel more like natural breasts, and they are safer than other types of implants because they have a lower rupture rate.

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure in Naples, FL

The shape and size of your bust before your augmentation surgery will influence both the recommended treatment and the final results, which we’ll talk through in detail during your various in-person consultations. 

During the procedure itself, a small incision will be made either under the breast, around a portion of the areola, or in the armpit. The implant will be inserted either under the breast tissue but above the underlying pectoralis muscle, or under both the breast tissue and the muscle.

At this point, the incision will be closed with tiny sutures, designed to be inconspicuous.

Depending on which procedure is utilized, breast augmentation is performed most often under sedation and local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Most women are able to return to their usual activities within about a week, but it’s important to avoid strenuous activities for two to four weeks.
