What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that improves the appearance and shape of the breasts by adding subtle or substantial volume and projection using custom-fitted breast implants. When breast augmentation is expertly performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon, it can create harmony and balance with the rest of the patient’s features and add a more desired shape to the breasts. 

Dr. Paydar will carefully personalize every breast augmentation procedure to create outstanding results. If you have any concerns about this procedure, please don’t hesitate to let him know during your consultation, and he will be happy to provide honest opinions and recommendations that address them. During your consultation, Dr. Paydar will explain the look, feel, and safety of each type of implant available. Together, you will formulate a surgical plan that best fits your individual needs and desired results.

About The “No-Touch” Breast Augmentation Technique

The “no-touch” technique provides numerous benefits for both doctors and patients. The device used (called the Keller Funnel) has become known as a significant innovation in breast augmentation and can be considered the gold standard in breast augmentation conducted today.

The Keller Funnel was designed to make breast augmentation safer and more comfortable for the patient. Using the funnel streamlines the breast augmentation process and provides a “no-touch” technique, which means the surgeon doesn’t need to touch the breast implants before they are put into place. A no-touch approach is much safer, as there is decreased chance of infection and capsular contracture. Studies have proven that recovery is quicker with far fewer complications.

Who Makes a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation can be something worthy of pursuing at many different stages of life. Dr. Paydar understands the importance of a woman’s shape for their self-confidence and the ways a womanly figure can cultivate and restore a strong sense of femininity, which is why he’s committed to helping his Newport Beach breast implant surgery patients realize their goals with care and expertise. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Paydar to see if you are a candidate for this procedure. 

You may be a candidate if you are:

  • A younger women who seeks an augmentation to enlarge yournaturally small breasts and create a more curvaceous figure. 
  • A mother who desires breast augmentation in order to restore breast volume that was lost during breastfeeding and is not seeking to get pregnant in the future.
  • A  mature women who pursue wants to give their breast a more rounded shape, as the upper poles may flatten slightly after menopause. 
  • A women who has noticeable asymmetry in shape and volume of their breasts.

To be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery, you must be in overall good health and a non-smoker. Giving up smoking at least four weeks before and after surgery is required, as smoking limits the amount of oxygen that can enter your bloodstream, impeding your healing. Smoking can also compromise cardiovascular health, making surgery much riskier.

How are Breast Augmentation procedures Performed?

Breast enlargement surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Before inserting the implants into the breast pocket using the Keller Funnel, Dr. Paydar makes an incision inside the inframammary fold of each breast (this is the fold just underneath the breast) in the majority of cases, and at times, he uses the nipple areola for incision. Using the inframammary fold incision location ensures that any resulting scar is perfectly hidden by the natural curve of the breast. Working through the incision, the surgeon will lift your breast tissue and skin to create a pocket underneath your chest wall muscle. The implants are then centered beneath your nipples.

The surgery usually takes 1 to 1.5 hours to complete. Stitches are used to close the incisions, which may also be taped for greater support. A bandage will be applied above the breasts to help settle the implants lower over time.

What To Expect From Breast Augmentation Recovery

Your breast augmentation recovery can be managed with Tylenol or Ibuprofen and rarely with pain medication (which Dr. Paydar will provide), but it’s important to avoid strenuous exercise for six to eight weeks after surgery, even if you are feeling good. Dr. Paydar will let you know when it is safe for you to return to your normal exercise routine. You’ll also be asked to wear a special surgical bra for at least two weeks after surgery. This bra will help you heal faster and ensure that your new breasts take on the right shape and position.

Here are some things to expect during your breast augmentation recovery:

  • Most women are up and around the same evening after surgery, but full recovery from breast augmentation surgery takes longer
  • Implant exercises and massage will begin one week after surgery 
  • Within a 2 weeks, the tape over the incisions will be removed
  • It may take several months for the swelling in your breasts to disappear

As the Keller Funnel is a less invasive, more precise, and sanitary form of inserting the implants into the breast pocket, patients typically have a comfortable, rapid-recovery breast augmentation. 

Although each patient heals differently, you should be prepared to take a few days off work to give yourself time to rest and heal. If you have any questions during your recovery, Dr. Paydar and his Orange County plastic surgery team are available every step of the way.

Newport Beach Breast Augmentation FAqs

Cleavage is determined by your natural pre-existing gap between the breasts. Implants can improve this distance some but not always. If not, a bra can bring this gap closer. If breasts are sitting low on the chest then you may need a breast lift as well as breast augmentation.

Be comfortable to communicate your desires with me, and bring photos of what looks good to you and make sure they match your body as well in the photos.

Your desires and goals and my experience will determine that answer.

If your breast tissue or nipples are sitting below your crease, you may be a good candidate for a breast lift in addition to an augmentation to give you the best shape and volume to your breasts.

Silicone implants can create a more natural look and have a more natural feel when compared to overfilled saline implants. The less breast tissue is present, the more true this is.

Yes. This if for the best experience for the patient.

Its always good to have help around especially for the first 24 hours after surgery for any unexpected outcomes.

To avoid introducing bacteria that can cause infection or biofilm formation that causes capsular contracture or scarring around the implant, I like to avoid touching the implant after it is removed from its package. Thus using a sterile Keller funnel, I squeeze the implant into the breast pocket without having the implant touch the skin or any potential bacteria containing surfaces.

The recovery is only a few days with minimal discomfort. I allow most exercises except those requiring chest excursion as any flexion of chest muscle can lead to implant malposition to the armpit or lower, leading to a loss of cleavage.

A couple of days at most.

I like to support the breasts as much as possible for longevity purposes. I do put on a bandeau dressing religiously to bring the implants that tend to rise under the muscle down sooner.

The younger you are, it is more likely that you may need another procedure in the future, be it a replacement to a different size based on a change in your opinion about your body or for a rupture or capsular contracture or need for lift or reduction.

My experience with breast surgery, complicated or simple, in reconstruction or in aesthetic revision, allows me to deliver the best results for you and my communication skills will make you feel that you are heard during our consultation with appropriate expectations ahead of your surgery.

Make sure that they are Board Certified Plastic & Reconstructive surgeons. Then make sure they have experience in not just breast augmentation but also in revision surgery and other complicated breast surgery to know that you are in good hands and can be taken care of under any circumstance. Ample amount of excellent before and after photos help as well.

This allows minimal to no contact between the breast implant and your skin which could introduce some bacteria that can cause complications in the future.

As long as anatomy is respected and minimal cutting is performed under the muscle, the sensation to the nipples should remain the same.

If you desire an unnatural size of implant where the stress from the weight or profile overwhelms the natural breast support then you may need the mesh for reinforcement.

Yes. MRI is the imaging of choice to evaluate silicone breast implants.

Hematoma formation that may require re operation. Otherwise capsular contracture and implant rupture are not uncommon complications.

Yes. The usual place I like to hide the scars is in the breast crease and its around a 3.5cm incision. Sometimes patients choose a periareolar incision for better camouflage of the scar location.

Yes. Ruptures can happen in saline or silicone implants. If one of the saline breast implants ruptures, it is obvious, as one side becomes noticeably smaller than the opposite non-ruptured side. For silicone implants, there could be a silent rupture that is only detected on imaging such as MRI or mammogram or ultrasound. Sometimes this may lead to hardening around the implant resulting in a change in the shape of the breast.

No. Feeling as if you have done 200 push ups or as if someone is stepping on your chest is a common comment after augmentation where the chest muscles are detached to allow the implants to be placed below them. I encourage my patients to perform the usual range of motion after surgery.
