Ideal Candidates

You may be the ideal candidate if you meet some of the following criteria:

  • You are unhappy with the current size and shape of your breasts
  • You have lost the firmness of your breasts because of weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding
  • One breast is larger than the other
  • The size of your breasts is not in proportion to the rest of your body
  • You have a desire to restore the shape of your breasts after a mastectomy or lumpectomy

What to Expect

Before you have breast augmentation surgery, you will have a complete physical examination. Overall good health is necessary for a successful result. When deciding which type of implant to use, keep in mind that age can be a determining factor. One of the distinct differences between saline and silicone breast implants is the age restriction. Patients must be 18 years or older in age in order to receive saline implants, and at least 21 for silicone. Existing native breast tissue, breast shape, and skin elasticity are other factors to take into consideration. Measurements will be taken of the breasts and the chest wall, including base width, to help determine the best implant type. This evaluation will help our surgeon develop the best breast augmentation plan.

Anticipated Results

After surgery, you can expect to feel sore, so you will be given post-surgical care instructions, and pain medication may be prescribed. Each augmentation patient will leave in a sports bra and clean surgical dressings. There will be some bruising and swelling for about 1 – 2 weeks. It is recommended for you to to take it easy for those two weeks to heal and rebuild strength after surgery. A majority patients experience a full recovery between 6 – 8 weeks. Most women find that their breasts look and feel totally natural within just a few short months.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your cost for breast augmentation will vary based on your choices and whether you are getting any other surgeries at the same time. As soon as your treatment plan is developed, Dr. Mizuguchi can go over the estimated costs and financing. To make sure you are happy with your results and they last a long time, it's important to focus on quality over low costs.

Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your plan may include breast augmentation, a lift, or both. Breast lift surgery removes loose skin and raises the breasts, while augmentation addresses the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi, he will listen to your needs and goals before discussing your best treatment options. An augmentation and lift are often included in a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you might want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, talk to Dr. Mizuguchi during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after augmentation surgery with the right placement and technique. Breastfeeding and pregnancy can affect your results, so it is best to wait until your family is complete to have breast augmentation.

Can I have my implants removed?
You may decide at some point that you would like to replace or remove your implants. If this happens, Dr. Mizuguchi can perform breast revision surgery. In revision surgery, your current implants will be either replaced with new implants or removed. If you choose to have your implants removed, you might need to have excess skin removed because larger implants can stretch your skin. For any questions or concerns after your breast augmentation surgery, schedule a consultation at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery to learn more about your options.

Do implants cause breast cancer?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is investigating a link between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). This isn't breast cancer; it is a cancer of the immune cells. According to WHO (the World Health Organization), breast implant-related ALCL is very rare and, when caught early, is highly treatable. Dr. Mizuguchi encourages all patients with implants to get regular screenings for breast cancer. You should contact Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery if you notice any concerns, like swelling or other visible changes.
