There are virtually countless factors that can contribute to concerns about your breasts’ appearance. You may be unsatisfied with the shape, position, symmetry, size, or fullness of your breasts. At ARC Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeremy White takes an empathetic and individualized approach to deliver impeccably beautiful Miami Breast Augmentation results that enhance the patient’s unique look and their life.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure in which a saline or silicone breast implant is surgically placed under the breast tissue, or beneath the chest muscle, to enhance breast fullness. Our breast augmentation in Miami can also provide a minor lifting effect to drooping breasts and improve the balance of your figure.
Advances in modern medicine have made breast augmentation safer than ever, with extremely natural-looking results. To get the breasts that you want and deserve, consider having a breast augmentation surgery. Learn more about the surgery and how board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeremy White, can help.
It is important that breast augmentation is not confused with a breast lift. A breast augmentation in Miami will not correct severely droopy or saggy breasts. In some cases, patients choose to have both surgeries at one time, but your plastic surgeon will advise you of the best way to move forward to get the result you envision in perky, full, healthy-looking breasts.
During your consultation with Dr. White, he will fully explain everything to expect when you go in for your breast augmentation in Miami. A few of the topics you will go over are:
The decision to choose saline or silicone implants is an individual choice, and we ensure that you can make an educated decision.
Saline breast implants are a well-known option when researching what material to choose for your Miami breast augmentation procedure. Here are some facts about saline implants:
Silicone breast implant technology has advanced tremendously over the years. These implants are safe and feel like natural breast tissue for breast augmentation. Here are some facts about silicone implants:
Low profile implants are generally the widest of your options and have less projection. Women who have a wider chest and are looking for a more natural result may get the most attractive, natural-looking result with low profile implants.
Moderate profile breast implants are a good compromise between the breast’s projection from the body and the width of the chest.
Implants with a moderate plus profile provide more cleavage and volume while still looking natural. They are wider than high profile implants, but still narrower than the low profile option. They are a good option for a woman who has a medium-sized frame.
High profile is a good compromise for you if you want to achieve full volume and dramatic results, while still suiting the natural characteristics of your figure.
Ultra-high profile implants offer the largest amount of projection and can create a beautifully dramatic result. This type of implant can work well for some women who are looking for very full and rounded breasts. Depending on a person’s frame size, achieving natural-looking results requires high-level surgical skills.
With our breast implants, there is no “typical” patient. Women of all ages choose this surgery for many reasons, sometimes to improve self-esteem, to restore the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding, or to correct an asymmetrical breast. To help you determine if you're a good candidate for Breast Augmentation Miami patents should ask themselves some things about breast implant surgery, such as:
If you answered any of these questions with a definitive yes, you are probably a good candidate for breast implants in Miami. We suggest a consultation with a highly-skilled plastic surgeon to advise you of the best way to move forward in beautifying your bust area.

The Keller Funnel was invented by Dr. Kevin M. Keller. This device allows a wide range of cup sizes and various types of silicone breast implants to be inserted in a minimally-invasive way that requires no skin contact by the surgeon. This greatly reduces the risk of any complication from the surgery (including reducing the chance of capsular contracture) and is why Dr. White uses it.
In the practice of cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation cost ranges from $4,500 to $6,000 for an initial procedure. This cost itself includes the cost of the certified surgery center, the board-certified anesthesiologists, breast implants and other surgical materials, and the services of your board-certified plastic surgeon.
For tubular breast deformities or breast revision surgeries, the procedure requires more time and surgical complexity. As a completely different surgery that requires added skill and materials in the procedure, the cost is higher at a range of $6,500 to $10,500. It is important to remember that breast augmentation is an elective surgery, which means insurance usually won’t cover it. If you have questions, speak with your insurance provider.
For patients in Miami breast augmentation recovery time can be quite rapid. This is an outpatient procedure, most often performed under general anesthesia. For the first two to four weeks post-op, you will feel sore.
You should also avoid strenuous exercise during this time, and your surgeon may require you to wear a special sports bra or surgical bra. This will help your breasts heal, and it is important that you follow your doctor’s orders during the recovery time. If your implants have been placed beneath the pectoral muscle, then you may notice that they’re a little higher on your chest. This is completely normal. Over the next few weeks, you will see them settle into place. The final results will be evident a few months post-op.
Before having the procedure, you should sit down with your plastic surgeon and go over all the details of your Miami breast implants surgery.
Your surgeon will listen to your needs and what you envision in size, shape, and projection of the breast, as well as any issues associated with nipple appearance, and create a customized treatment plan for you.

Plain and simple: my breasts were the smallest in the family. Compared to all the women in my family, I had veritable mosquito bites. As a 5"7', athletically built lady, my little guys were almost embarrassing! A 38A on a lady like me was just sad...I invested quite a bit of money every few months to a new bra with more and more padding as well as the 'chicken cutlets' that you insert into your bra for extra volume. It got to a point where the amount of money I was spending to find 'superficial' enhancement was nearing the cost of having a sub muscular enhancement. And, I just got engaged....Does a girl need any more reasons?! I have been waiting 7 years to find the means and time to have the surgery. Although I am still recovering, I am so happy I did it. At this point, I am thinking that my 38A was increased to something around a C....I didn't go bonkers, and I certainly didn't want people to think "here comes the boobs" instead of "here comes the bride"! My doctor is AMAZING. If you live in the area, then GO SEE HIM. His staff is incredible and he makes you feel very comfortable with any procedure you are considering. In fact, he told me during the consult, "...if you are looking for incredibly big and fake looking, then I am probably not your guy..." Perfect, especially for a lady like me who just wanted some extra 'umph' and not a lot of 'wowza'!
Dr. White, Laurie and Rachel were all so wonderful and made my experience so memorable. Dr. White truly listens to what you want and provides his honest opinion about what works for your body; I completely trusted his guidance and am so happy with my results. This was my first procedure and Im so grateful to have had such an amazing experience. I loved how any instructions or advise comes directly from Dr. White and I always felt I was their number 1 priority. I did extended amounts of research prior to choosing a surgeon for my rhinoplasty and breast augmentation and am so pleased with my decision!
I went to Dr. White to have a breast augmentation and I am more than pleased with the results. Dr. White and his team are very passionate about what they do. His team is very caring and friendly. I had a COVID exposure scare a few days before my procedure, I called Laurie panicking asking where I can go to get a 24 hour result. She calmed me down and sent me all the information I needed. On the day of the surgery Dr. White came in and was very thorough with his markings and making sure I was comfortable. A week or so after my surgery I had a scare with my incision sites bleeding, Dr. White immediately called me on FaceTime after business hours to look at the incision sites. Every visit to Dr. White was nothing short of pleasant. I’ve been asked by a few people who knew about my surgery where I went and I give them Dr. Whites information right away. I’ve received so many compliments about how natural and great they look. I highly highly highly recommend Dr. White.
I had an incredible experience with Doctor White and his staff! Doctor White always made sure I felt comfortable and the service was 10/10. So thankful for this positive experience and so happy with the results. I would highly recommend Doctor White and his staff to anyone.
Dr White did my breast augmentation procedure 6 months ago. Just saw him recently for my follow up and I still can not get over how sexy I look and feel. Staff was great too.
I had a breast augmentation years ago and developed a problem. One boob ended up very high and the other became hard. I then went to Dr. White because he has a great reputation for cosmetic surgery, especially for breast augmentation. He fixed my problem and I am forever grateful. My breasts are soft and perky once again!
I always felt self conscious about my small breasts. Dr. White took care of that for me with an amazing breast augmentation. It has been 4 weeks since surgery, I feel great, and my boobs look natural and spectacular. I can't wait until bikini season! Thanks Dr. White!
Dr White was a breath of fresh air and he definitely knows his stuff. He is up to date on all new procedures and is a perfectionist and I am grateful for making me and my breast very happy.. I received a lift and some bra fat liposuction and some injections in my face. I am a patient for life Dr. White and Rachel haven't seen the last of me. :o)
Most elective breast surgery should be performed only after breast development is complete. This means at least 18 years old for most women, but it should be noted that breasts continue to change in size and shape with age and pregnancies. Saline implants have FDA approval for patients 18 years of age or older. For silicone breast implants, FDA approval is for 22 years or older. Both options are available for breast reconstruction for women of any age.
There is no concrete answer for what size breast implant should be chosen, as breast size is a personal preference, depending upon your wishes and what you consider to be ideal for you. In some cases, there are potential anatomical limitations associated with the amount of preexisting breast and skin tissue, and the degree of stretch that your unique skin can tolerate. Dr. White spends time with each patient during a consultation using a specialized breast implant sizing kit to help choose the best breast implant range, based on the factors of breast width, existing tissue and the elasticity of your individual skin.
That depends on the implant. Breast implants are not meant to be life-long devices, which is why most companies guarantee them for only 10 years. If you have not had any problems (capsular contracture, leak, etc.) with your current implants and they have not been placed on recall (like the French PIP), I do not see a reason to remove them. You should continue to do self-breast exams and get mammography to screen for cancer.
There is no one answer for an ideal breast implant size. The size depends on your desires and your aesthetic ideals. There are also potential anatomic limitations having to do with how much breast tissue you have and how much stretch your skin can tolerate.
The tuberous breast is a congenital malformation of the breasts that is thought to be caused by a constrictive ring of fascia around the breast tissue underneath the skin. This prevents the present tissue from expanding and developing properly and often leads to herniation of breast tissue through a large areola. There is a spectrum of how much this ring ends up restricting breast growth.
Treatment for tuberous breast depends on the amount of breast tissue present, the pliability of the soft tissue, and the breast shape. The constrictive ring is broken up by dissecting the breast tissue from the underlying muscle and making a radial incision. This technique enables the breast tissue to lay in a more circular fashion. A nipple reduction is often an integral part of this surgery as is, at times, a breast lift.
The surgery can be done in one or two stages with or without a breast implant. Tissue expansion is sometimes necessary to prepare the breast envelope to receive an implant. The bottom line is that there are multiple ways to do this, so we have to decide together what is the best way to help you achieve your goals when you come in for your physical examination.
The two most commonly used practices for performing breast augmentation surgery are either an incision at the bottom of the breast (called an inframammary fold) or an incision at the bottom of the areola (called periareolar). In some instances, implants can be placed through the armpit or belly button, but these incision sites create more limitations related to implant size, type, and control of the final location.
The inframammary approach, which uses an incision at the lower fold of the breast, is the most commonly used incision and is well hidden under the breast mound. This method provides the plastic surgeon control and flexibility with implant pocket creation and device placement.
