Why Get Breast Augmentation?

You have many choices when it comes to deciding on your optimum course of action and it depends to some degree on what you’d like done and why. From double mastectomies to childbirth, there are many reasons breasts are augmented. One of your core decisions, made with the guidance of your doctor, is what type of implant is best for you.

Women can often be disappointed with the size and / or volume of their breasts. A breast augmentation can provide the desired change in a woman’s breasts by improving the volume and positioning. The treatment results in a more attractive appearance that can help foster high self-confidence.

As one of the top providers of breast augmentation Phoenix has to offer, Dr. Marc Malek will not rest until you have achieved the cosmetic goals you are striving to attain.

How to Choose the Perfect Implant Size

Types of Breast Implants

Saline breast implant: These implants are a shell filled with saline salt water. They are highly adjustable, less expensive, and offer more choices in volume. They can also be implanted through a shorter incision and smaller scar. These implants may be ideal for larger women who require more implant coverage.

Silicone breast implants: Silicone gel feels very similar to natural breast tissue, with softness and give. These implants are extremely popular with patients of all dimensions, and often considered the best option for women with smaller frames. Silicone implants may require periodic examination via ultrasound or MRI screening to monitor their condition.

Form-Stable implants: These implants are silicone based and crafted to maintain their shape, with a slightly firmer feel than other implants. Shaped to match the natural breast shape, these implants are often chosen for a more natural look.

Round breast implants: Used for their fuller appearance, their consistent shape makes these implants extremely stable.

Smooth breast implants: The softest feeling implant with the most natural movement and bounce. Dr. Malek will advise you if this implant is right for you.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

A breast augmentation can be delivered in the form of implants. They can be produced from silicone or saline material. They are placed through incisions, which are made in the most inconspicuous locations, disguising any scars. Dr. Malek is dedicated to his patients’ well-being and will use the most comfortable treatment techniques to deliver the right result.

Breast implants are not considered lifetime devices. You will likely undergo implant removal with or without replacement over the course of your life; therefore, breast augmentation implant surgery requires careful consideration.

Recovery from Breast Augmentation

All breast augmentation procedures are performed in our Scottsdale surgical center as an outpatient procedure, so patients will have the freedom of returning home after the breast augmentation surgery.

You will be required to wear a sports bra for a minimum of six weeks following your breast augmentation surgery and your sutures will be removed in 7-10 days following your surgery. Your initial recovery will usually last several days, and your breasts may remain swollen, sore and sensitive to physical contact for a month or longer.

Prior to your breast augmentation, Dr. Malek will prescribe necessary medication to assist with any minor discomfort. Typically, patients are able to return to work approximately one week after breast augmentation surgery.

Most patients are able to perform light exercise, not involving the chest muscles, two weeks after their surgical procedure. Heavier exercise and full activity may resume after 6 weeks. Although results from surgery are evident immediately, residual swelling may last for several weeks. The breasts should take their final shape and position within two to six months.

Breast Augmentation Recovery Tips

Recovery after breast augmentation surgery is crucial for achieving the best results and minimizing complications. Here are some tips to help you have a smoother recovery:

  1. Follow Your Surgeon's Instructions: Your surgeon will provide you with specific post-operative instructions. Follow them carefully, as they are tailored to your individual case.
  2. Rest and Relaxation: Give your body the time it needs to heal. Rest and avoid strenuous activities for at least a few weeks after surgery.
  3. Pain Management: Pain and discomfort are common after breast augmentation. Take prescribed pain medications as directed by your surgeon to manage your pain effectively.
  4. Supportive Bras: Wear a supportive surgical or sports bra as your surgeon recommends. This helps reduce swelling and supports your breasts during the healing process.
  5. Ice Packs: Applying ice packs wrapped in a cloth to the breasts can help reduce swelling and ease discomfort. Follow your surgeon's guidelines on when and how to use ice packs.
  6. Avoid Sleeping on Your Stomach: Sleeping on your back with your upper body elevated can help prevent pressure on your breasts and reduce swelling.
  7. Avoid Smoking and Alcohol: Smoking and alcohol can interfere with the healing process. Avoid them for the recommended period before and after surgery.
  8. Stay Hydrated and Eat Nutritious Meals: Proper nutrition is essential for healing. Stay hydrated and consume a balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals to promote recovery.
  9. Gentle Movements: Avoid sudden, jerky movements and heavy lifting for several weeks. Gradually reintroduce physical activity as approved by your surgeon.
  10. Scar Care: Follow your surgeon's instructions for scar care. They may recommend using silicone gel or sheets to help minimize scarring.
  11. Attend Follow-Up Appointments: Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments with your surgeon. They will monitor your progress and address any concerns.
  12. Be Patient: It can take several months for the final breast augmentation results to become apparent. Don't be discouraged by initial swelling and bruising.
  13. Emotional Support: Recovery can be emotionally challenging. Seek support from friends, family, or a therapist if needed.
  14. Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect your incision sites from direct sunlight. Sun exposure can cause scars to darken and become more noticeable.
  15. Compression Garments: Some surgeons may recommend wearing compression garments to reduce swelling and promote healing. Follow your surgeon's guidance on this.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

How long does a breast augmentation take?

The entire process will take around 3 hours. You can expect to be in surgery for only half of that time, with the other portion spent receiving anesthesia and preparing to go home. Naturally, if breast augmentation is combined with any other treatment such as a breast lift, fat transfer, or mommy makeover, then your process will take longer. Dr. Malek or can give you a better sense of your exact procedure time during your private consultation.

What kind of scarring can I expect?

Thanks to Dr. Malek’s meticulously precise and conservative approach, scarring is greatly minimized after breast augmentation. Incisions are placed in such a manner that they are mostly inconspicuous later on. Most patients will have a 1-2 inch scar across the inframammary fold, although incisions may also be placed in the armpits or around the nipples. In the case of the latter, scarring is well-camouflaged by the darker pigmentation of the areolas.

Will breast augmentation affect my ability to breastfeed?

Dr. Malek will take great care to preserve your milk ducts during surgery, ensuring that your breastfeeding ability remains fully intact. They will do this by choosing an under-the-muscle approach and an inframammary fold incision location. If this is a concern for you, be sure to let the doctor know during your consultation.
