ABOUT BREAST AUGMENTATION IN JACKSONVILLE

AT FIRST COAST PLASTIC SURGERY

Breast augmentation, clinically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance and adjust the size, shape and symmetry of a woman’s breasts. Some of the most common reasons women opt for breast augmentation are:

  • To enlarge and contour breasts.
  • To replace breast volume after pregnancy.
  • To balance or create symmetry of breasts that are different in size, shape or position.
  • To reconstruct breast(s) after a serious injury or a mastectomy.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Generally speaking, you will first consult with Dr. Csikai about how you feel about the appearance of your breasts and the aspects that you would like to alter or improve. After carefully listening and understanding, Dr. Csikai will explain options such as the types of implants and surgical techniques that are best suited to achieving your goals. Also during your initial consultation, you should feel free to ask Dr. Csikai any questions that you might have, bring a list to make sure all of your questions are answered. If you would like to proceed after your initial consultation, you will meet with a surgery coordinator who will schedule your breast augmentation procedure and provide you with detailed preparation instructions. Breast augmentation surgery is usually a two hour procedure and patients are generally up and about with limited activity within a day or two and can return to work after two to three days of initial recovery. You can expect full recovery in three to four weeks. Each stage of the breast augmentation procedure is explained in greater detail below.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT BREAST IMPLANT

If you are considering breast augmentation in Jacksonville, choosing the right breast implant will be important in achieving the appearance you desire. In helping you select the size and type of implants most suited to achieving your goals, Dr. Csikai will consider your size, the shape and width of your chest and your breasts. Dr. Csikai will also consider the activities that make up your typical day such as the types of clothes you like to wear and any workouts or exercises that you do. This information coupled with your goals will help Dr. Csikai recommend the best implants for you.

BREAST IMPLANT SIZES

The size of breast implants are measured in cubic centimeters or cc’s which of course is not the same as cup-size. But if you have a rough idea of your desired cup size, (and we say “rough idea” because cup sizes are not consistent among brands) we can estimate the implant size and possibly shape that will most accurately achieve your desired appearance. There are other factors such as implant placement; above or below the muscle and the type of implants that will be considered in recommending implant sizes.

TYPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS

Dr. Csikai offers a number of different types of breast implants to assure that he can properly address the unique goals of each patient. Broadly speaking, there are three types of breast implants: saline, silicone and shaped gel. Breast implants are available with a smooth or textured surface. Dr. Csikai recommends smooth implants for most patients for a number of reasons. Insertion and placement can be performed through a smaller incision, in the event of a rupture, saline is simply absorbed by the body, and the natural appearance and feel of saline implants. You will be able to hold and feel the differences of each type of implant during your initial consultation.

SALINE
BREAST IMPLANTS

Natrelle Saline Breast Implant

Saline implants have a silicone outer shell and are filled with sterile salt water making them the safest option in the event of a rupture. They are available with smooth and textured surfaces. The empty implant shell is usually placed and then filled to the desired size. Saline implants are available to patients over the age of 18.

SILICONE
BREAST IMPLANTS

Natrelle Silicone Breast Implant

Silicone implants also have a silicone outer shell and are filled with silicone gel. And they are also available with a smooth or textured surface. Silicone implants are available to women over the age 22. However they are available to breast reconstruction patients of any age.

SHAPED GEL
BREAST IMPLANTS

Mentor Shaped Gel Breast Implant

Mentor CPG shaped gel breast implants also have a silicone outer shell and as the name implies and are filled with a gel that is designed to help the implants retain their shape. They are made with “SILTEX® Microtexture that helps reduce capsular contracture. Shaped gel implants are available to women over the age 22 and breast reconstruction patients of any age.

THE BREAST AUGMENTATION PROCEDURE

INCISIONS

During your breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Csikai will insert your new implants through an incision. The incision can be made in one of two locations; The most common location is under the breast where the breast meets the chest. This incision is called an inframammary incision and accommodates a wide variety of implant types and sizes and allows Dr. Csikai to size and shape your breasts to best meet your goals. The other incision location that is generally reserved for other breast procedures where it is necessary, is the periareolar incision. This incision is made in the center of the breast along the edge of the areolar where the change in skin tone helps minimize and hide visible scaring.

IMPLANT PLACEMENT

The placement of your implants is important for many reasons. Placement can effect appearance and also your comfort during certain activities. There are two placement options that you will have already discussed and decided with Dr. Csikai during your initial consultation.

SUBGLANDULAR PLACEMENT

Implants are placed directly behind the breast gland, above the muscle. Subglandular placement can be an option for women who already have some volume. However this placement can also end up looking unnatural and can be uncomfortable for physically active women.

SUBPECTORAL PLACEMENT

Implants are placed behind your chest muscles, “under the muscle”. Dr. Csikai prefers subpectoral placement for a number of reasons. subpectoral placement reduces the potential for capsular contracture, (buildup of scar tissue around the implant). It also ensures that your breasts maintain their natural feel and appearance and eliminates the possibility of rippling.

RECOVERING AFTER YOUR BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation is surgery so your breasts will be sore to the touch for a few days after surgery and remain tender for 2-3 weeks. Dr. Csikai will prescribe medication to mitigated pain and discomfort. If your work does not require strenuous activity, you will likely be comfortable enough to return to work within a few days. And you can expect to be fully back to normal and enjoying your new appearance in 3-4 weeks.
