Breast Augmentation in Melbourne, FL
Breast augmentation is the most common type of breast enhancement amongst women. Commonly known as a “boob job,” the surgery enhances the size and shape of the breasts. Breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Mauricio J. Castellon, MD, offers breast augmentation and other types of breast enhancement for women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Breast Augmentation/Breast Implants?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that enhances the size and shape of the breasts by placing silicone or saline implants in the breast area. Based on your individual anatomy, the implants may be placed above or below the major muscle of the chest. Boob jobs are popular amongst women because having fuller breasts improves their body proportions and helps them feel more confident and attractive.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Women choose breast augmentation because the surgery:
- Enhances breast size and shape
- Improves overall body proportions
- Helps clothing fit better
- Allows women to wear a wider variety clothing styles
- Can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift
What Do I Need to Know About Breast Implants?
You have two options for your breast implants: silicone and saline. Dr. Castellon works with patients to have an open dialogue about their desired result. We also consider the increase in size, current breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type when recommending a type of breast implant to our patients.
Dr. Castellon primarily uses silicone breast implants because they offer the look and feel similar to real breast tissue. Both saline and silicone implants consist of a silicone outer shell, but the difference is what is inside of the implant, either saline or silicone-gel. In both cases, it is recommended that patients replace their implants every ten years which mirrors the warranty offered by breast implant companies. Most importantly, the selection of your implant should match your individualized aesthetic goals.
Natrelle® Breast Implants at Castellon Plastic Surgery Center
Allergan is known as the makers of dermal fillers and injectables that help fight the signs of aging, but the company is also a leading manufacturer of silicone and saline breast implants. Dr. Castellon has chosen the Allergan Natrelle® breast implants for his patients because the implants are available in several sizes, shapes, and textures. You can simply explain how you want your breasts to look and feel, and Dr. Castellon will select the perfect Natrelle® implant for your breast augmentation.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
The most important consideration for breast augmentation is that you have realistic expectations of the surgery. You should also be open-minded about the resultant size of your breasts. When boob jobs first became popular, women chose the largest possible implants. Years later those same women regretted their decision to go so big with their implants and sought out the expertise of Dr. Castellon for breast implant revision surgery.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Breast Augmentation?
Working with a board-certified plastic surgeon ensures that your breast augmentation surgery and breast augmentation with a breast lift will go smoothly and produce the desired results. Dr. Castellon has an exceptional reputation amongst his peers and patients for his pre-surgery consultations, performance during surgery and his bedside manner.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Breast Augmentation?
We recommend that you have a friend or family member drive you to the surgery center for your breast augmentation procedure. You will spend some time in our recovery area before being released, but you will feel fatigued for 24 days after the procedure. We provide at-home recovery instructions before you are released.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Breast Augmentation?
For most women, breast augmentation takes one to two hours for the actual surgery. Additional time is needed for pre-surgery and recovery.
What Should I Expect After My Breast Augmentation?
You will need to rest at home for the first 24 to 48 hours after your breast augmentation. Boob jobs and breast augmentation with a lift require you to wear a special compression bra for the first two weeks to help the tissues heal properly. Sutures are removed after seven to 10 days. You will need to limit your activities for at least one month.
Will I Have Scars From My Breast Augmentation?
Dr. Castellon places the incisions in areas that will make scars less visible, such as in the natural breast crease and around the areola. The scars will take about one year to fade, and you can only see them if you look very closely.
When Will I See Full Results of My Breast Augmentation?
You will see initial results of your boob job immediately after the surgery, but full results of breast augmentation can take six months to a year.
How Long Will the Results of Breast Augmentation Last?
The results of a boob job and breast augmentation with a lift are permanent, but some factors can change the size and shape of your breasts, such as aging, pregnancy, and weight fluctuations.
