Breast Augmentation

Small breasts can be the result of a number of factors. Genetics, pregnancy, or weight loss can all rob you of attractive, full breast volume that enhances your appearance and helps create feminine curves. Breasts that are too small may lack an appealing shape or eye-catching definition. Breast augmentation utilizes implants to increase the size and improve the shape of your breasts for a fuller, more attractive bustline.

Breast Implant Options

Implant Locations

Over the Muscle

  • Implants are positioned under the breast tissue but over the pectoral muscle
  • Allows for an easier placement and shorter recovery period
  • Can help create more defined cleavage
  • Implant shape isn’t distorted during pectoral muscle flexing
  • More prone to visible implant rippling
  • Higher rate of capsular contracture
  • Lacks support of the lower breast tissue that may result in bottoming out

Under the Muscle

  • Implants are positioned under the breast tissue and the pectoral muscle
  • Ideal for women with thinner breast tissue because it masks implant edges
  • Provides extra implant support
  • Lower risk of capsular contracture
  • More discomfort during recovery due to the displacement of the pectoral muscle during insertion
  • Might cause slight implant distortion during muscle flexing

Frequently asked questions

Each woman’s body is built differently, and what looks attractive on one woman may not always translate the same to another. Dr. Wilson strives to tailor each breast augmentation to suit the aesthetic needs and goals of each patient.
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure with the patient under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and safety.
Women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation should not impact your ability to nurse in the future. However, you should remember that pregnancy and nursing can alter the results of your breast augmentation.
Placing the implants over the pectoral muscle may provide some correction to breasts with mild sagging. However, women with moderate to severe breast drooping should consider combining a breast lift with their augmentation. Breast lift surgery tightens and restores firmness to the breast tissue, which can help prevent future complications such as double-bubble deformity and bottoming out.
With a trained and experienced mammographer, breast implants won’t interfere with the quality of your mammograms. Also, multiple studies show that breast implants don’t increase your risk of developing breast cancer, nor do they prevent early detection. If you are over the age of 40, you should receive routine breast cancer screenings.
