Am I a candidate for breast augmentation?
Women seek breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons. A full breast is seen as a signifier of femininity. Women who choose to undertake augmentation surgery often wish to fill out clothing better and present a more feminine silhouette. Breast augmentation is a relatively simple procedure, but it is not for everyone. The procedure is designed to enhance the volume of the bust while also augmenting its shape. The procedure is incredibly personalized, and women should undertake it with the intent to achieve their own cosmetic goals.
Augmentation surgery is typically recommended for adults whose bodies have developed fully. Women who are pregnant or those who are breastfeeding should wait to undertake the procedure.
What is the augmentation procedure like?
Dr. Yenikomshian makes a small incision in the breast through which he inserts the breast implant. Depending on the individual patient’s anatomy and the size of implant desired, the incision may be placed in several discreet positions.The type of incision he uses is determined by a number of factors, including the patient’s anatomy and her goals for surgery. The most common types of incision are:
Periareolar-Around the areola
Inframammary-In the crease of the breast
Transaxillar -Under the arm
Dr. Yenikomshian takes care in placing each incision regardless of method. His advanced surgical skill and technique puts focus on minimizing scarring. Once the breast implants are placed Dr. Yenikomshian takes time to carefully adjust the positioning and placement of the implants to ensure a natural look and feel.
Breast implants are comprised of two substances: Saline and Silicone. Both are approved by the FDA and offer different benefits to the patient. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel that mimics the texture of natural breast tissue.The implants may be either saline or silicone, depending on the individual patient’s needs. Dr. Yenikomshian will take time during consultation to explain the differences and you will have the opportunity to look at and feel the differences.
What is the cost of augmentation surgery?
The cost for surgery is dependent on a variety of factors including the incisions necessary, as well as implant size and type. Each woman’s body is unique and each procedure is custom tailored to enhance and complement the natural body. The procedure typically costs between $5000-$6500 in professional fees. If an augmentation is done in conjunction with another procedure such as a breast lift or reconstruction, the cost may be higher.Breast augmentation surgery is one of the least expensive cosmetic surgeries available to patients. Financing options are available.
