What is breast augmentation?
Factors such as breastfeeding, gravity, aging, and genetics can all play a role in undermining the youthfulness of the bust. Many women feel self-conscious about their deflated breasts and pursue breast augmentation to restore an attractive, balanced figure. Breast augmentation is among the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world because it gives women the physique they crave, increasing their wardrobe options and boosting their self-image.
Dr. Afrooz performs breast augmentation with implants or fat transfer. He will discuss the pros and cons of each technique with you in depth during your private consultation.
What are the different types of implants available?
Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel inside a silicone shell. It can be difficult to detect rupture, so women will need to undergo periodic diagnostic testing to ensure their implants are intact. While silicone implants cost a little more, they are usually considered more authentic, both in feel and appearance.
Gummy Bear implants are filled with cohesive, form-stable silicone gel in a teardrop shape that many women consider to be highly natural and appealing. Soft and supple, they are often selected because they tend to keep their shape regardless of the body’s activities.
Saline implants have several distinct advantages. They can be inserted through an incision unfilled, reducing the necessity of postoperative scarring. In the rare event that the implants rupture, the saltwater filling is harmlessly absorbed by the body. Saline implants have a full, rounded shape and are typically less costly than their silicone counterparts.
What is a breast lift?
As the body ages, the breasts lose their firmness and elasticity. A breast lift is a procedure to remove excess skin from the breast area, reducing sagging and elevating the bust to a more visually pleasing position. It is often performed to address low-hanging nipples that face the floor. It’s also a great option for correcting breast asymmetry. When combined with breast augmentation, mastopexy can lead to a completely revitalized physique and a host of new options when it comes to swimwear, eveningwear, and everyday clothing.

What can I expect from my recovery?
Dr. Afrooz practices a cutting-edge, conservative approach that expedites your recovery. Most patients are able to return to work within the first week, provided they do not have a physically demanding job. Exercise can be resumed within 4-6 weeks. You will most likely need to wear a compression garment, which can help mitigate your swelling and keep your new breast shape in pristine form.
A modest amount of swelling, bruising, and discomfort is to be expected after surgery, but your pain will be well-controlled with medications prescribed by Dr. Afrooz. Temporary numbness, tingling, or loss of sensitivity are common in the nipples, but feeling tends to return over the course of the coming weeks. Dr. Afrooz will continue to monitor your recuperation and ensure you are healing properly.
