Why women choose Breast Augmentation
As women age, many are dismayed to see a significant decrease in breast size and definition. Part of this is just the effects of time on the body – skin loses its elasticity and volume, fat stores decrease, and the body in general becomes saggy and wrinkled, losing the taut definition of youth. Many women also experience a radical change in their breasts following pregnancy, during pregnancy and for some time after (longer if she chooses to breastfeed), when the breasts have become significantly enlarged.
In the year after giving birth, the breasts slowly reduce in size again, sometimes even smaller than the size they were pre-pregnancy. After being so swollen for so long, the breast tissue is often irreversibly stretched. Breasts sag noticeably and have lost their firm definition. Areolas may be stretched and enlarged, and nipples may be larger and point down, with an aged appearance. Breast augmentation can be used, at times in conjunction with a mastopexy or “breast lift” to correct some of these common complaints.
In addition to breasts being affected by the ravages of time from the aging process, some women have simply never had the breasts they wanted. If you have always been dissatisfied with a small bust, breast augmentation could be the answer for you.

Options for Breast Augmentation
Cosmetic surgery is never a one-size-fits-all procedure. No two women are exactly alike and you should have a plastic surgeon dedicated to understanding and achieving your unique aesthetic goals. Before you walk into the room for your initial consultation, you should know that you have multiple options available to you for breast augmentation surgery. If you choose to go with breast implants, you may opt for traditional saline or the newer silicone models that mitigate some of the risks that were earlier associated with silicone implants – it should be noted that adverse effects and implant malfunctions are incredibly rare with any type of implant, if the surgery is performed by a highly-skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon, in a state-of-the-art surgical facility.
In addition to artificial implants, it is also possible to perform breast augmentations with fat that has been removed from other areas of the body with liposuction. In this case, fat can be removed from thighs, hips, the abdomen, arms, or other sites on the body, and then is processed and purified before being reinjected into the breasts for added volume. This method appeals to many women who don’t like the idea of artificial implants, but want to enhance breast size more naturally.
In addition to the options to achieving or restoring your desired breast volume, you may also consider performing another procedure in conjunction with your breast augmentation. A mastopexy, or breast lift, can help restore structure and definition to the breasts, reorient downward-pointing nipples, and shrink stretched areolas.
The Breast Augmentation procedure
The first step in breast augmentation is the initial consultation. Dr. Jeremy White will discuss your options, as well as the pros and cons of each. You can decide between saline or silicone implants and feel the difference of the implants themselves. You will also discuss the periareolar (around the nipple) and inframammary (breast fold) incision approaches with their associated pros and cons. Dr. White will evaluate your existing breast structure and make recommendations about the procedure that will achieve the look and feel you want.
On surgery day, you will want to arrange for someone to drive you to and from the surgery center. The procedure will take between two and three hours to complete and you will need to take some time in the recovery room before going home. Shortly after your procedure you will have a follow-up appointment so we can monitor your healing. You should be mostly healed within four to six weeks after the procedure, but it can take a few months for the implants to settle and achieve their final look and location on the chest.
