Breast Enhancement

With breast augmentation being the most popular cosmetic surgery each year, most people think of breast implant surgery when they consider breast enhancement. However, it’s important to know that there are many other options that can help rejuvenate the breasts aside from just adding volume. Sometimes, a combination of breast procedures can help achieve your ideal breast goals with the benefit of one single recovery period.

What is Breast Enhancement?

Breast enhancement includes surgical or minimally invasive procedures designed to augment, reshape, and lift the breasts for improved projection, size, and shape. There are many different reasons that women consider breast enhancement, but the most common reasons are changes during pregnancy and nursing, as well as genetics or aging. Although breast enhancement is most often performed using implants, some patients prefer to avoid them and opt for alternatives.

Candidates for Breast Enhancement

Patients who can benefit most from breast enhancement are women who would like larger and more shapely breasts. Additionally, women who experienced a loss of volume during pregnancy and nursing or over the course of aging can benefit. It’s essential to be in good overall health and able to undergo a surgical procedure. Dr. DiFrancesco will discuss the right combination procedure for you during a consultation so that you understand your candidacy for each specific technique.

Breast Enhancement Combinations

Breast enhancement can be performed in a few different ways. Breast augmentation procedures can be customized to your unique goals and preferences for your new breasts.

Breast Enhancement with Implants

Breast augmentation is a type of breast surgery that traditionally uses breast implants to restore breast volume and improve the shape and projection of the breasts. The most common types of implants are saline or silicone breast implants.

One extremely effective technique is to pair implants with a breast lift if your breasts are sagging or deflated. The breast lift restores the breasts to a more upright and lifted position by reshaping and lifting the breast tissue for perky, youthful results. With the help of implants, many women enjoy rejuvenated, transformative results.

Breast Enhancement with Fat Transfer

Fat transfer can be performed after a liposuction procedure to collect fatty tissue from another area of your body. The fat is injected into the breasts to restore volume naturally without the use of implants. This technique can be paired with a breast lift for completely natural and lifted results, making it an effective option if you want to avoid implants. It provides results that feel just like natural breast tissue.

Breast Enhancement Recovery

Whether with or without silicone or saline breast implants, each combination option will require some downtime. However, many patients opt for a breast enhancement combination procedure because it requires only one recovery period. Each option produces long-term, excellent results.

Frequently Asked Questions about Breast Enhancement

What is the difference between breast augmentation and breast implants?

Breast augmentation, or breast enhancement, is a surgical procedure that increases the size of the breasts and reshapes them to improve symmetry. Breast implants are one way to augment the size of the breasts but a fat transfer can also be used. In certain situations, they may be used together.

What age is best for a breast augmentation?

Women of all ages who are unhappy with the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts. We commonly see patients in their 20s-30s but also many patients older than this who want to feel more confident in their bodies.

What happens to breast implants when you get old?

Breast implants last an average of 10 years but often stay in condition for longer. It’s important to be aware of any changes to your breasts’ size or shape after receiving implants in case a rupture occurs.

Is breast augmentation painful?

During the breast augmentation procedure, patients will be asleep under general anesthesia. Mild to moderate discomfort is common for a few days after surgery but can be alleviated with pain medication and rest.

Do you need a breast lift with implants?

Implants can be used with breast lift surgery to simultaneously enhance the shape and size of the breasts. A breast lift improves the look of sagging breasts while breast implants add volume and increase the projection of the breasts.
