Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for women, and not only among younger patients who want to increase their bust size. This image-enhancing surgery is also in demand among those women who want to restore their figure to its pre-pregnancy shape, or who simply want to achieve a shapelier, more proportionate figure with the help of breast implants.

Dr. Lee B. Daniel is board certified in both general surgery and plastic surgery. He is regarded as one of the best breast enhancement specialists in Oregon. Both silicone and saline implants are available from Dr. Daniel’s plastic surgery practice, and he and the expert team at Aesthetic Plastic Surgery are committed to helping you feel and look your best.

Before Your Breast Augmentation

When thinking about a breast augmentation, each woman has a different vision of what her final results will look like. For this reason, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Daniel is an important step to ensuring the best possible outcome for your breast augmentation.

During your consultation, Dr. Daniel will explore your goals for breast augmentation, and give you all the information you’ll need to make an informed decision. Dr. Daniel offers both saline and silicone gel breast implants for women interested in increasing or balancing breast size:

Saline breast implants consist of a silicone rubber shell that is inflated to the desired size with sterile saline during surgery. The implants have a valve that can be sealed by the surgeon.

Silicone gel breast implants have an outer shell, also made of silicone, that is filled with a fixed amount of silicone gel. These gel-filled implants vary in shell surface, shape, profile, volume and shell thickness, and don’t have an adjustable fill range.

Dr. Daniel uses the very best in surgical breast implants made by Mentor Corporation, Allergan, and Sientra. He can help you make an informed decision on what type of incision, placement and implant would be best for you.

Some women who have previously undergone breast augmentation may decide they want to switch their saline implants for silicone, or vice versa. In this case, Dr. Daniel may recommend breast implant revision to ensure a final look you’ll love.

Your Breast Augmentation Procedure

Dr. Daniel provides the most natural-looking breast augmentation results by using only small incisions, and by placing implants under the breast tissue and the underlying muscle. Depending on the individual and how much breast tissue she has, implants may also be placed over the muscle.

Breast enlargement is often included as part of a mommy makeover , which combines breast enhancement  and  body contouring procedures  to help rejuvenate a woman’s body from some of the effects of motherhood. For women with breasts that look deflated or droopy, Dr. Daniel may recommend combining a breast lift with your implants to give your breasts a perkier, uplifted profile in addition to a size increase.

Healing Process for Your Breast Augmentation

You should notice an immediate change in your figure after your breast enlargement, although your final results will take about 6 months to fully develop. Within 2 to 4 weeks after your breast augmentation, swelling should subside, and incision marks should fade within 6 months.

After the surgery, your breasts will be bandaged in a surgical bra to minimize swelling and provide support. Some soreness and swelling is common for several weeks following breast augmentation, but most women are able to return to work within a week. Dr. Daniel and his staff can advise you on an optimal recovery plan based upon the demands of your job and lifestyle.

Following your breast augmentation and recovery, your breasts should look fuller and shapelier, helping your figure to look curvier and more proportionate overall.
