Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Minneapolis, MN

Breast augmentations, also called mammoplasties, are surgical enhancement procedures performed by inserting implants to improve the appearance of breasts. Patients who've lost breast volume due to nursing or pregnancy, who want their breast shape to be restored to a more natural appearance, or, who want fuller and larger breasts, will best be served through a mammoplasty.

Over his 25-year career in plastic surgery, Dr. Mahjouri has become one of the leaders in surgically achieving natural-looking breasts for patients in need of improved breast volume, more symmetrical breasts and attractive breasts. Mahjouri Cosmetic Surgery & Skincare Clinic has helped fulfill the cosmetic needs of countless patients looking to achieve more balanced physiques through breast implants.

Reasons for Considering Breast Augmentation:

  • Enhance body shape if breasts are too small.
  • Increase breast volume after pregnancy and nursing.
  • Equalize a difference in breast size (cup size) to gain breast symmetry.
  • Reconstruct breasts following a mastectomy or injury.

About Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation accentuates the size and shape of a woman's breasts. While breast augmentation will make the breasts larger, the surgery will not move the breasts closer together or lift sagging breasts.

The breast augmentation procedure is a tremendous help to patients who desire a fuller profile, who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or nursing, or who have undergone breast reconstruction and want to gain a more natural look again.

 

 

Types of Implants Used

Implants typically contain a saline solution (similar to saltwater) although in special cases the implants can contain a silicone gel. Dr. Mahjouri performs breast enlargements using a silicone or saline implant to meet desired contour aesthetics. Dr. Mahjouri and his staff will help patients determine which type and size of implants will work best for them. While silicone is softer and more malleable, saline implants may be preferable for some patients.

In some circumstances, particularly those in which there is breast asymmetry (uneven breast size), an inflatable implant may be used to allow the surgeon to adjust the level of inflation to attain breast symmetry and balance.

Determining The Right Size Implant

The procedures we provide are customized to meet the needs of the individual. To help choose the size of the implant, our doctor can provide patients with “sizers” so they can see what their physique may look like post-operation. Dr. Mahjouri discusses advantages and disadvantages of different implants in detail and will assist patients in choosing the most appropriate implants during their consultation as well.

The Breast Implant Surgery Procedure

The Incision

Breast augmentation involves making a small incision to insert a breast implant into the breast area in order to enlarge the breast. The surgery is commonly performed on an outpatient basis at a hospital or state-of-the-art surgical unit while the patient is under a general anesthesia and asleep. There are several possible locations for the small incision that will be used for inserting the breast implant. Incisions can be placed under breast folds or around areolas, especially if uplifting may be required during breast enlargements.

The most frequent technique utilizes an incision made in the lower portion of the breast. Another technique, though less frequently used, involves making an incision in the armpit. A third technique makes an incision around the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). A newer technique uses an incision in the belly button, thus reducing the chance of scarring in the breast area.

The best technique will be decided together between the patient and the surgeon during the consultation.

Implant Placement

During surgery, the breast tissue is raised to create an open pocket under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. Inserting an implant behind each breast can increase a woman's breast size by one or more bra cup sizes. Breast implants can be placed under or on top of patient chest muscles.

  • Implants placed under the muscle tend to look more natural if patients have a slim frame, if they desire a larger implant, or if they have thin skin.
  • For patients who have fuller frames or, engage in hobbies or occupations that involve lifting heavy weights, Dr. Mahjouri may recommend placing the implant over the muscle.

The best position for the breast implant and the surgical incision will be determined by Dr. Mahjouri during patient consultation. Surgery typically lasts from 1 to 3 hours.

Recovering After Breast Implant Surgery

Generally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and recovery time. Bandages are applied right after surgery to aid the healing process and to minimize movement of the breasts. Once the bandages are removed, a specialized surgical bra will need to be worn for several weeks. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with the surgery. This pain can be treated effectively with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the directions given by the physician after surgery.
