Breast Augmentation

Whether you are unhappy with your breasts because of shape, size or symmetry, breast augmentation can help. This procedure uses implants to give you the size and fullness you did not get from Mother Nature. With different sizes and shapes now available, Dr. Saad can tailor your breast augmentation procedure to your specifications to produce results that are natural and beautiful.

Dr. Saad offers a variety of techniques when performing breast augmentation to ensure his patients achieve the best possible outcome from their surgery. Because every patient has different needs and goals, every surgical enhancement must be planned with the patient’s precise body profile and proportions in mind. Dr. Saad will take the time to listen carefully to your concerns and aesthetic goals so he can tailor your procedure to your exact needs.

One of the techniques used by Dr. Saad for many of his breast augmentations was one he and a colleague pioneered together. Known as the Harmonie breast augmentation, this method uses a unique placement of the implant to guarantee the most natural results possible. The Harmonie technique also provides a more comfortable procedure for the patient overall, with a quicker recovery time in most cases.

Are You a Candidate?

Breast augmentation is appropriate for adult women of all ages that would like to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. This procedure might be the right choice for you if you have any of the following concerns:

  • Small breasts in relation to your other body contours
  • Breasts that are different shapes or sizes
  • Loss of breast volume after pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Self-consciousness about your appearance due to your breast size
  • Avoidance of certain types of clothing because of your smaller breasts

Once you decide breast augmentation is right for you, there will be numerous decisions to make as you prepare for your procedure. Dr. Saad will work closely with you during this process to help you make the choices that ensure you are happy with your final results.

Before Your Breast Augmentation

Many of the pre-operative decisions you will need to make will begin to take shape at your initial consultation. At this appointment, Dr. Saad will discuss your reasons for wanting breast augmentation and the type of outcome you are hoping to achieve. He will evaluate your medical history to ensure breast augmentation will be safe for you. This meeting will be your first chance to ask the questions that will make you feel comfortable and confident as you prepare for your upcoming procedure.

Breast Augmentation Options

As you work with Dr. Saad to get ready for your breast enhancements, these factors will all need to be discussed:

Implant Types

You will be given a choice between saline and silicone implants. Both feature a silicone shell, but saline implants are filled with a sterile saline liquid, while silicone have a jelly-like silicone substance inside. There are pros and cons to both types, and Dr. Saad will help you determine which option will meet your needs more appropriately.

Implant Placement

There are three placement options for breast implants: in the breast tissue above the fascia and chest muscle; underneath the fascia; or underneath the fascia and chest muscle. The second option is the Harmonie technique pioneered by Dr. Saad, which provides a natural look without distortions to the breast when the chest muscle is flexed. While many patients opt for the Harmonie technique, it is not right for everyone. Dr. Saad will help you determine which placement is best for you, based on the type of implant you choose, the size of the implant and your overall body size and shape.

Incisions

Incisions to place the implant can also vary. The most common placement is inside the lower breast crease, but other choices include around the areola, in the armpit and in the belly button. No matter which incisions works best for you, Dr. Saad will make every effort to minimize visible scarring after surgery by placing the incision in the natural creases of the skin and using tiny sutures to ensure the incision heals cleanly.

Shape and Size

Implants come in different sizes to accommodate every woman’s body shape, and are also available in both round and anatomical (teardrop-shaped) styles. The anatomical implant is used for the Harmonie technique and may be used for the other placement options as well. Round implants can be placed over or under the muscle and fascia.

About Your Surgery

It is most likely Dr. Saad will be able to perform your breast augmentation using local anesthesia and sedation. However, general anesthesia may be more appropriate for some procedures, and he will discuss this option with you before your surgery. The incision will be created, and the implant will be placed. Saline implants are filled after they are placed in the breast tissue, while silicone implants come pre-filled.

During your surgery, Dr. Saad will take special care to both ensure your implant produces a natural breast shape, and to minimize post-operative scarring. His goal is to bring balance and symmetry to your upper body profile while creating the curves you want. Through a safe and effective procedure, Dr. Saad can produce results you will enjoy over many years.

The Recovery Process

Your recovery from breast augmentation surgery will depend in large part on the placement of your implants. The Harmonie technique results in the shortest, most comfortable recovery process in most cases. Patients that undergo this method are usually back to most of their activities within a few days. Implants placed above the chest muscle also tend to result in a quicker, more comfortable healing process, while implants placed under the muscle may require a slightly longer recovery. Most patients are back to a full schedule within 1-2 weeks, and strenuous exercise by the four-week mark.

Breast augmentation can produce a significant improvement in self-esteem as your upper body curves finally meet your expectations and desires. To find out if you are a candidate for breast augmentation, schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Saad today.
