Before & After

An Overview Of Breast Augmentation 

Breast augmentation uses implants to enhance natural breast tissue’s size, shape, and feel. Another form of breast augmentation, fat transfer to breasts, is less common but can still increase breast size. 

Breast implant patients in Hawaii have three main types of breast implants they can choose from: 

  • Silicone breast implants 
  • Saline breast implants
  • Gummy bear breast implants 

1. Saline Breast Implants 

Saline breast implants are popular among women who are more concerned about the safety of breast implants. While all breast implants are FDA-approved and considered to be a safe surgery, saline implants are the safest version of implants. Due to their saline shell and sterile saline filling, the implant would be entirely safe for the body if it ruptured. However, saline implants look the least natural and don’t move with the breast tissue like silicone implants. For this reason, silicone implants are more commonly used. 

2. Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are a popular implant option with Hawaii breast augmentation patients. Due to their silicone shell and the cohesive nature of the silicone gel filling, these implants create a more natural look for the breast tissue. They can move, feel, and look more natural, forming the breasts more easily than saline implants. 

3. Gummy Bear Implants 

Gummy bear implants are quickly becoming one of the more desired types of breast implants. While gummy bear implants have a similar silicone shell, the interior of the implant is a firm, cohesive silicone gel. This gives a gummy bear’s texture and allows it to take the shape of a natural breast more than the other implants. The firm substance also decreases the likeliness of implant rupture. Additionally, gummy bear implants are rounder at the bottom and narrow towards the top, mimicking the shape of natural breasts.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation Hawaii

There are many benefits of breast augmentation surgery. The appearance of breast tissue can notably hinder a patient’s mental health. Every woman wants to have confidence in their beauty and shape, but when breasts have apparent cosmetic issues, this can interfere with self-image. Breast implants help enrich the breast tissue’s shape, size, and form. Breast augmentation patients in Hawaii can experience these benefits from the surgery: 

  • A balanced, stunning figure  
  • Corrected breast asymmetry 
  • Enhanced breast size 
  • Improved breast shape and size after breastfeeding and pregnancy 
  • Improved experiences with trying on clothes and the way they fit 
  • Increased self-confidence 
  • Corrected tuberous breasts  

Every patient has a unique reason for seeking breast augmentation surgery. There is no right or wrong reason to undergo breast augmentation. As long as a patient is in good health, doesn’t smoke, and is sure of their decision, breast implants can be the right option for them. 

What To Expect During A Breast Augmentation Hawaii 

Every patient will begin their breast augmentation process with an in-depth consultation at  Seattle Plastic Surgery. This consultation will serve a few purposes. First, it will allow the provider to get the patient’s complete medical background to ensure they can safely undergo the procedure. Second, the provider will better understand the patient’s cosmetic needs and goals. Third, the patient can discuss implant types, sizes, and incision sites with the provider to determine which ones are right for them. Finally, the provider will give the patient a list of pre and post-operative instructions and a personalized quote for their breast implant surgery. 

Breast Augmentation Hawaii 

Patients will arrive at the state-of-the-art Seattle Plastic Surgery facility. The patient will be placed under general anesthetic, and the provider will begin the surgery. He will use the incision site discussed during the consultation to place the implants either above or below the chest muscle. Patients will be monitored for a small period of time after the surgery before being released to go home. 

Recovery from Breast Augmentation 

Hawaii breast augmentation patients will be sent home in a compression garment that they should wear until their provider clears them to remove it. Patients should expect discomfort, swelling, and bruising during the first week following the procedure. The provider will provide medication to ease any discomfort the patient may experience. Some other post-operative instructions may include: 

  • Rest and do not return to work for at least a week 
  • Do not participate in strenuous exercise or lift above ten pounds for six to eight weeks
  • Avoid sleeping on your stomach
  • Attend all follow-up appointments
  • Utilize the incision care instructions 
  • Take all medication prescribed by your provider

What Are The Different Incision Site Options? 

Four incision sites can be used during a breast augmentation Hawaii surgery: 

  • Periareolar – placed around the outside of the areola
  • Transaxillary – placed underneath the arm in the armpit 
  • Inframammary – placed in the crease underneath the breast 
  • Transumbilical – placed near the belly button 

Women can choose whichever incision site works for them and their needs. During the consultation, the provider can help the patient find the best incision site for them. 

Will Breast Implants Affect Breastfeeding? 

Breast implants can be placed differently in order not to affect breastfeeding. The Seattle Plastic Surgeon provider can place the implants so that the mammary glands will not be affected and the implants will not interfere with breastfeeding. 

Will Breast Augmentation Hawaii Affect My Nipple Sensation? 

It’s common for patients to experience a change in nipple sensation for the first few weeks following the procedure. However, this should subside as the incision site and breast tissue begins to heal. In rare cases, some patients experience a permanent change in nipple sensation. However, in the hands of experienced cosmetic surgeons, like those at Seattle Plastic Surgery, the risk of a permanent change in nipple sensation is very low.

How Much Do Breast Implants In Hawaii Cost? 

Hawaii breast augmentation costs range from $5,000 to $7,500. The cost depends on the type of implant, surgical technique, and any additional surgeries the patient may want. The provider will give a custom quote to every patient during their consultation. 

What Are The Risks of Breast Augmentation? 

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, and like every surgery, it comes with certain risks. Some risks of breast augmentation include: 

  • Capsular contracture (hardening of the scar tissue) 
  • Infection 
  • BII (breast implant illness) 
  • Rippling under the skin 
  • Implant rupture 
  • Changes in nipple sensation 
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia 

In the hands of an expert cosmetic surgeon, any risks that can come with breast augmentation are significantly reduced. The providers at Seattle Plastic Surgery go above and beyond to ensure the safety of every patient.
