Understanding Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation involves the use of implants or fat transfer to increase the size, shape, or fullness of the breasts. This procedure can address various concerns:

  • Genetics that have resulted in smaller breasts
  • Changes following pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or aging
  • Asymmetry or congenital abnormalities

Breast augmentation is not performed to lift sagging breasts, but many women combine breast implants with a breast lift to elevate drooping breasts and increase their size.

Breast Implants

Implants come in saline and silicone options, each with its own benefits and considerations. Whether you’re seeking a subtle change or a significant increase in breast volume, breast augmentation with implants is tailored to meet your specific aesthetic goals.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation offers a range of aesthetic and psychological benefits, from improving overall body proportions to enhancing self-image. Here are some key benefits that breast augmentation can provide:

  • Enhanced symmetry
  • Post-pregnancy restoration
  • Increased volume and improved shape
  • Proportional body contours
  • Expanded clothing options
  • Correction of congenital defects

Numerous studies and patient self-reported data show that breast augmentation has a very high rate of satisfaction and that patients enjoy an improved quality of life afterward.

Implant Options

Dr. Murphy almost exclusively chooses highly cohesive “gummy bear” silicone gel implants for his patients due to their superior aesthetic qualities and long-lasting results. Only on rare occasions are saline implants used.  Whether you’re seeking a subtle change or a significant increase in breast volume, breast augmentation with implants is tailored to meet your specific aesthetic goals. 

The following are available customization options:

  • Implant Material: Choose between saline implants, which are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and are known for their safety and simplicity, and silicone implants, which are filled with a silicone gel that closely mimics the feel of natural breast tissue.
  • Size and Profile: The size of the implant is the most important factor determining your aesthetic outcome, and Dr. Murphy and his staff will go to every length to be sure that you have chosen an appropriate size to meet your desired result. The shape or profile of the implant is also a very important factor, which Dr. Murphy will use to tweak your result to that exceptional level. Implant manufacturers have provided us with a myriad of profiles of implants with a wide variety of widths and projections. Dr. Murphy can recommend a profile that will give you the cleavage you desire without too much “side boob;” or maybe a higher profile to provide greater upper pole fullness or roundness. They even make an implant that will give some upper pole fullness without too much projection. These decisions are all made via a thorough assessment during your in-depth consultation with Dr. Murphy. 
  • Placement and Incisions: The position of the implant (above or below the muscle) and the location of incisions are strategically chosen to optimize the aesthetic result and minimize visible scarring. Common incision sites include the inframammary fold (under the breast), around the areola, or in the armpit.

Recovery & Results

The recovery period for breast augmentation varies but typically involves about 1 to 2 weeks of initial downtime. It’s crucial to rest and limit any activities that could strain the chest area. Most patients take this period off work, especially if their jobs involve physical exertion. Fat transfer patients will also be recovering from the liposuction procedure.

While you may feel well enough to return to work and engage in light activities after the initial recovery phase, avoiding strenuous activities, including heavy lifting and vigorous exercise, for up to 6 weeks is essential.

As the healing progresses, swelling and sensitivity in the breast area gradually decrease. This reduction in swelling will reveal the final results of the augmentation. However, it can take several months for the implants to settle into their final position and for all residual swelling to resolve.

Dr. Murphy and his team provide comprehensive postoperative care instructions tailored to your specific surgical details to ensure a smooth recovery. These guidelines include how to care for your incisions, manage discomfort, and reduce the risk of complications.
