All about Breast Augmentation
With breast augmentation, cosmetic surgeon A.M. Yenikomshian can create subtle or spectacular curves that are beautiful and natural looking. As with all of the surgical treatments he offers, Dr. Yenikomshian performs breast augmentation surgery at a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical center located near his San Jose plastic surgery practice.
Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Women who would like to increase their breast size and who are in good physical and emotional health are generally suitable candidates for breast augmentation. Often, a woman will choose to undergo breast augmentation because her current bust size inhibits her from wearing the clothing she wishes. She may feel self-conscious when she wears a form-fitting top, or she may have difficulty finding clothing that fits properly.
Women may choose to combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation to lift the breasts as well as add volume and roundness. Those who are currently pregnant or nursing, however, should wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to undergo the procedure. At that point, many patients choose to combine breast augmentation and breast lift with body contouring procedures such as abdominoplasty (better known as tummy tuck surgery) and liposuction as part of a comprehensive “mommy makeover” treatment plan.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
During the breast augmentation procedure, also known as breast enlargement or breast enhancement, Dr. Yenikomshian makes an incision through which he inserts the breast implant. The type of incision he uses is determined by a number of factors, including the patient’s anatomy and her goals for surgery. Possible incision types include the periareolar (around the areola), the inframammary (in the crease of the breast), and the transaxillary (under the arm). Regardless of which type of incision that Dr. Yenikomshian uses, his advanced surgical skill allows him to minimize scarring.
After placing the breast implants, Dr. Yenikomshian makes careful adjustments to ensure that the breast implants look and feel as natural as possible. The implants may be either saline or silicone, depending on the individual patient’s needs. The choice of the implants will be discussed and agreed upon before surgery in Dr. Yenikomshian’s office. Saline implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a saltwater solution, whereas silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. The FDA lifted their 14-year ban on silicone implants in 2006 after years of rigorous testing. Silicone implants are approved by the FDA for use in breast augmentation patients 22 years of age and older.
