$2800 Breast Augmentation, Miami Breast Enlargement
Throughout North America, breast augmentation surgery is credited with having improved self esteem for thousands of women. Miami breast augmentation patients report feeling more feminine, more confident, and more attractive after having decided that breast augmentation surgery was right for them. Our doctors help patients in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Broward County and surrounding communities in South Florida to understand their options and achieve the results and look they desire.
Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is appropriate for women from all walks of life who meet certain basic requirements. Women who do choose augmentation frequently enjoy lasting self-esteem benefits.
Preparation: To best prepare breast enlargement Miami patients, they should be aware of the potential risks associated with any surgical procedure. They should consult with one of our board certified plastic surgeon on desired size, basic requirements, and recommended steps to having a successful operation.
A note on overall health: Certain medical conditions can impact a patient's ability to obtain breast implants. For instance, people with an immune disorder or who have cancer are unsuitable candidates for the surgery. Breast augmentation is not an appropriate surgery for someone who is being pressured to change their appearance. Additionally, people affected by body image disorders and pregnant or breastfeeding women should wait until a more appropriate time to explore having their breasts enlarged. The board-certified plastic surgeons at Coral Gables offer advice and information on the options available to patients based on their specific circumstances and individual needs.

Ideal age for breast implants: As breast tissue can still be developing into the early 20's, breast enlargement surgery is generally recommended for adult women in their mid-twenties and beyond. In certain cases, teenagers may have the procedure, however you must be 22 years old to receive silicone-filled breast implants. Advanced age is not a deterrent for undergoing breast augmentation surgery or getting implants, as long as the patient enjoys good general health.
Patients who have been pressured into surgery by others or who are affected by body image disorders should not have breast augmentation surgery. The procedure is also not appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Patients undergoing breast lift surgery sometimes choose to add implants in order to enjoy a more thorough transformation than either procedure makes possible on its own.

About Breast Implants
One of the most important things to consider when preparing for breast augmentation or reconstructive surgery is choosing the right implants. Size, shape, and fill material are all characteristics of implants that your Coral Gables Cosmetic Center physician can help you to understand.
Breast implants come in many different sizes and are measured in cc's (cubic centimeters). An experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast augmentation can be invaluable in helping patients decide what size of implant will best suit your anatomy. Implants that are too large can result in increased complications and are more likely to need revision surgery in the future.
There are two basic shapes to breast implants: round and teardrop. Round implants create the most dramatic cleavage, however teardrop implants are considered by many to appear more realistic. Teardrop implants are textured, which helps keep them from slipping or rotating after surgery. Decisions on implant shape are based on how patients want their new breasts to look.
Implant Fill Material
There are two types of fill for breast implants: silicone or saline. Feedback from some patients indicates silicone implants feel most realistic. Silicone implants are filled before surgery, and therefore require a lightly larger incision than saline implants. Saline-filled implants come in smooth and textured shells, can be round or teardrop-shaped and ruptures are easier and faster to detect.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
There are many important factors that can affect a breast augmentation procedure. These factors should be well understood and carefully discussed with your plastic surgeon. It is important to note that often this surgery is not considered a one-time surgery as patients may need to undergo additional procedures in the future to address complications or replace implants as required.
Submuscular placement of breast implants is a slightly more invasive surgery where the surgeon places the implant under the patient's chest muscles. Results are thought to be more realistic than subglandular placement, where implants are placed above the chest muscles. Subglandular implant procedures involve shorter recovery times and smaller incisions for inserting the implant.
At Coral Gables Cosmetic Center, the location of the incision to insert their breast implants offers patients many choices. Patients may opt to have the incision in their inframammary fold, their armpit, areola, or navel. As inframammary and areola incisions offer the most control during implant procedures, patients returning for revision surgery will need an incision in one of these locations. It is important to note that armpit or navel incisions cannot accommodate silicone implants. They are also not possible for submuscular placement performed via a navel incision.
