Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. However, for many women, the size of their breasts is a serious cause for concern. Bigger isn’t necessarily better, but for those women who would like larger breasts, their lack of curves in this area can cause them to feel self-conscious, embarrassed or even depressed about their appearance. For many women, their breasts are an integral part of their femininity and if they are small, they feel less womanly. For others, having larger breasts is more about confidence and self-esteem. Some people simply want a bigger chest because they feel that it will create better physical proportions for their bodies.

If you are looking to boost the size of your bust and want your breast augmentation procedure carried out by an experienced board-certified cosmetic surgeon, look no further than Dr. Pazmiño, who is available to help you achieve the shape that you desire, right here at our clinic in Miami, FL.

What Happens During a Breast Augmentation Procedure?

Most breast augmentation procedures are carried out using implants. This is where artificial prostheses are used to add volume and size to the breast tissue. They are inserted into pockets either in front of or behind the chest muscles. There are two types of breast implants available. These are saline and silicone

Saline implants are inserted into the chest empty and then filled with saline until they reach the desired size. This means that the incision used to place them can be much smaller, leading to smaller scars in the fold under the breast. They can also be used more effectively in patients with significantly asymmetrical breast sizes since one can be filled more than the other to create breasts of equal sizes.

Silicone implants are the most common type of implant. They are available in a wide range of sizes, enabling you to increase your chest size considerably. Our surgeon will help you to select the right size based on your goals, your body type, and other individual circumstances. These are inserted whole into the chest cavity.

All breast augmentation procedures are carried out under general anesthetic, ensuring that you aren’t in any discomfort or have any awareness of what is happening. When you wake up after your surgery, your new breasts will be complete.

Recovering From Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation is a significant surgery, and you will need to allow yourself time to heal and recover. During this time, it is essential that you follow the post-surgical instructions provided by our team, as these will minimize your risks of complications and help to ensure that you obtain the best esthetic result.

As you will have had a general anesthetic, you may need to stay overnight. If you are allowed home, you will need someone to drive you and stay with you for at least 24 hours. You should also expect to experience some discomfort. This is normal, and you will be prescribed painkillers to help you manage this until it subsides – something which usually takes a few days. It will be helpful for you to arrange to have someone help you with any physical tasks at home since you will need to avoid even moderate physical activities for at least 6-8 weeks.

Your breasts will be sore and swollen for several weeks, and as such, you probably won’t be able to see the final appearance of your new and enlarged breasts for a while after your surgery. However, within 6-8 weeks all of the swellings should have subsided, and you should be able to start enjoying your new shape.
