The breast augmentation procedure is performed by placing either silicone or saline implants under their breast tissue or chest muscles to augment the appearance of their bust line. Each implant and surgical option will be chosen based on the patient's individual needs.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure used to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. Breast volume can be lost following pregnancy and nursing, after weight loss, and during the natural aging process, and some women are genetically predisposed towards having small or uneven breasts. While breast augmentation will make the breasts larger, the surgery will not move the breasts closer together or lift sagging breasts

The Procedure

The breast augmentation procedure takes about one to two hours and involves placing a saline or silicone implant to change both the shape and size of the breast. First, anesthesia will be administered for your comfort – either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. To minimize visible scarring a small, inconspicuous incision will be made either under the breasts, under the arms, or around the nipples, depending on your body type, the type of implant being placed, and how much enlargement is needed. After the incision is made, an implant is placed into a pocket either above or below the chest muscle. After the implant is in place, the incision is closed with sutures or surgical tape. Although your appearance will improve in the upcoming weeks as any slight swelling goes down, the results of breast augmentation are immediately visible.

Candidates & Considerations

If you are in good health and have realistic expectations of what cosmetic surgery can do for you, you are likely a good candidate for breast augmentation. You might want larger breasts for cosmetic reasons, if weight loss has affected the size and shape of your breasts, or your breast shape has changed due to pregnancy or age. If you have been surgically treated for breast cancer, you may be a candidate for reconstructive breast augmentation to restore your breasts. Your candidacy will be determined during a consultation with Dr. Passaretti.

Breast Augmentation Benefits

The benefits of breast augmentation go beyond enhancing your self-image and self-confidence. Besides increasing the fullness and projection of the breasts and improving the balance of a woman’s figure, patients have experienced an overall increase in satisfaction in their appearance, and as a result, an improved quality of life. 

Choosing Your Breast Implants

Breast implants can give a woman a full bust, allow clothes to fit better, and boost self-confidence. There are two types of breast implants available: saline and silicone. While both have an outer silicone shell, they differ in material and consistency. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. They are inserted empty, and filled once they are in place. Silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, a thick, sticky fluid, and many women prefer them because they look and feel more like natural breast tissue.

Choosing the right type of breast implants is important. Both saline and silicone breast implants are offered at our Fairfield County, Connecticut office and we can help you select the one best suited for your goals.

Breast Implant Revision Surgery

A beast implant revision, also known as breast implant replacement, shares the same goal as a breast augmentation – to restore a youthful breast contour and appearance. The surgery involves removal and replacement of implants and is performed to change the size or type of the implants, or correct any complications from a previous breast augmentation.

Breast implant revision may be recommended if you want a different breast size, your implants have shifted in position or the scar tissue has tightened uncomfortably around the implant, the breast tissue has changed due to skin stretching from a weight loss or gain, your saline breast implants have deflated, or an X-ray or MRI indicates a silicone implant has a shell leak.
