Breast Augmentation Surgery Candidacy

Breast augmentation surgery is an excellent option for patients who wish to enhance the appearance of breasts that may be too small or asymmetrical. It can also correct droopy breasts and tissue laxity as a result of rapid weight loss, pregnancy or age-related factors such as the effects of gravity.

Important Aspects of Breast Augmentation Surgery

The process of achieving optimal postoperative breast augmentation results begins with several important decisions that will be discussed in great detail during your consultation appointment with Miami breast augmentation surgeon Dr. Gibstein, including:

  • Desired size and shape of the breasts
  • Breast implant type
  • Breast implants placement
  • Incision method

Size and Shape of Breast Implants

The size and shape of breast implants are determined based on each Miami breast augmentation patient’s personal aesthetic goals, lifestyle and breast anatomy. In order to recommend the best implant type, shape and size for each patient, Dr. Gibstein will closely examine the broadness of the chest, the base width of the breasts, the distance between the breasts, breast tissue laxity and breast symmetry. Taking into consideration the patient’s personal desires, he will then make a recommendation.

Breast Implant Types Offered by Dr. Lee Gibstein

A breast implant is an artificial prosthesis that is filled with either saline (saltwater solution) or silicone gel.

Dr. Gibstein offers two types of breast implants:

  • MemoryGel silicone breast implants
  • Saline breast implants

Silicone and saline breast implants each have unique advantages and disadvantages, which will be thoroughly discussed during your consultation appointment.

Breast Implant Placement

Breast implants can be surgically placed in three different locations:

  • Directly under the breast tissue
  • Under the pectoral and chest muscles
  • Under the breast tissue and partially under the muscles

Dr. Gibstein will recommend a specific breast implant placement based on each patient’s aesthetic goals, breast anatomy and breast implant type, size and shape.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Incision Methods

Dr. Gibstein is adept at performing a range of incision types for the least amount of postoperative scarring and best aesthetic results. Based on each patient’s unique treatment plan, Dr. Gibstein may perform breast implants surgery using one of the following incision methods:

  • Inframammary incision (in the crease under the breast)
  • Periareolar incision (around the nipple)
  • Transaxillary incision (in the armpit)

Breast Augmentation Surgery: The Procedure and Recovery

Dr. Gibstein performs all breast enhancement procedures under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical suite or local hospital. Depending on the nature of each individual enhancement, breast implants surgery may last anywhere from two to four hours. The recovery time lasts a few weeks; however, most Miami / Boynton Beach breast augmentation patients may return to work within a few days following the operation.

Dr. Gibstein and his staff strive to provide each breast augmentation patient with outstanding results in a safe and caring environment.
