Ideal Candidates

After a thorough evaluation, Dr. Mendieta will develop a custom surgical plan that addresses each patient’s needs and goals. Ideal candidates for breast augmentation can relate to the following conditions:

  • Naturally small breasts
  • Deflated breasts
  • Sagging or drooping breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts

Breast Augmentation Options

Breast augmentation is an entirely individualized cosmetic outpatient procedure performed using general anesthesia. Most breast augmentation surgeries take between one and three hours to complete. The incision location and implant placement used for your unique breast augmentation procedure depend on your personal preferences, anatomy, and goals.


  • Incision Location

    • Inframammary: under the breast along the crease
    • Periareolar: along the edges of the areolas
    • Transaxillary: within the armpit
    • Transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA): within the navel
  • Implant Placement

    Submuscular

    • Implants are placed underneath the pectoral muscle
    • Ideal for patients with minimal existing breast tissue
    • Conceals the edges of their implants

    Subglandular

    • Implants are placed above the chest or pectoral muscle and underneath the glandular tissue
    • Ideal for patients with moderate existing breast tissue
    • Requires a shorter recovery period than submuscular placement

Recovery

Patients can expect to feel some pressure on their chest, especially when the pectoral muscles are engaged. It is normal for breast augmentation patients to experience bruising, swelling, and soreness after surgery. These side effects should subside significantly within a few weeks of your procedure. Most patients feel well enough to return to work within one to two weeks.

Exercise

It can take up to eight weeks before you can return to your usual exercise routine. It is highly recommended to ease into exercising to avoid complications and discomfort.

Results

Breast augmentation results are meant to be long lasting. However, breast implants may need to be replaced if they rupture or if you experience other complications. Factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging can alter the appearance of the breasts over time as well.
