What is a Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement, is a surgical technique that uses breast implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. There are many reasons a woman may choose to have a breast augmentation, including:
- To correct asymmetry in the breasts
- To enhance the overall balance of the figure
- To correct changes that occurred during pregnancy, in combination with other mommy makeover techniques
- To restore the breasts after surgery, as part of breast reconstruction

What Kinds of Breast Implants are Available?
At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we offer two kinds of breast implants:
- Silicone Implants, which are filled with a silicone gel. These tend to feel more natural than other types of implants, but they typically require larger incisions.
- Saline Implants, which are inserted into the breast empty, then filled with a saltwater solution. These implants offer more flexibility during treatment, but at the cost of feeling a little less natural.
In addition to offering varying implants for breast augmentation, we can also place the implants in different locations:
- Behind the muscle is often the preferred location for breast implants. Here, they will look and feel much more natural in the breasts. This placement also reduces the risk of capsular contracture. Additionally, it will interfere less with future mammograms compared to placement in front of the muscle.
- In front of the muscle is a simpler procedure than placing implants behind the muscle. Since the implants are placed closer to the surface, the recovery from this technique is often quicker and less painful.
What is the Breast Augmentation Treatment Like?
The breast augmentation procedure is performed in our surgicenter and begins with using the appropriate anesthetic, ensuring that our patients receive a safe and comfortable treatment. The incisions for a breast augmentation can be made in one of three locations:
- Underneath the breasts, along the natural crease
- Around the areola of the nipple
- In the armpits
The incisions that we use for your procedure will vary depending on your treatment goals and the size and type of implant being placed. Once inserted, the incisions will be sealed and a protective gauze will be applied to aid the recovery process.
What is the Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?
After a breast augmentation, you can expect to feel sore, sensitive, and tired for a few days. We recommend taking at least a few days off of work and other activities, as it is essential to rest as much as possible following the surgery. About one to two weeks after treatment, your bandages will be removed and replaced with a surgical bra, which will aid the body in the remainder of the post-operative process. From this point, it can take about a month for the breasts to comple
