A Brief Overview of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation (or breast enlargement) is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures today. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' 2018 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, approximately 313,000 breast augmentation surgeries were performed that year.

Many patients at our Little Rock, AR, plastic surgery practice choose breast augmentation surgery because they want to increase the size of their breasts, achieve better symmetry, or restore volume after pregnancy. In many cases, patients choose to combine their breast implants with a breast lift to give their bust a perkier, more youthful projection

Although the actual length of your procedure will depend on several factors, most breast augmentation surgeries can be completed in about one hour.

Statistics Show Breast Implants Almost Always Meet Patient Expectations

Breast Implants Can Dramatically Improve:

Size

Whether you have struggled with underdeveloped breasts since adolescence or lost breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, breast implants can help.

Shape

If your breasts do not have the round, smooth shape that you desire, implants can give you a more pleasing and feminine projection.

Symmetry

Many women are self-conscious because their breasts are different sizes. Implants are carefully selected to restore balance and symmetry between your breasts.

Concerned with Sagging? Be Aware...

Breast augmentation is not designed to address sagging breasts or excess skin resulting from pregnancy or massive weight loss. If sagging or overly elastic skin are among your concerns, Dr. Yee can combine breast implants with breast lift surgery to improve the projection of your breasts. Performed together, these breast surgeries can completely enhance and rejuvenate your bustline—all at once.

Ensuring the Safety & Success of Your Breast Augmentation

a1

Be in Good Health

Because preexisting conditions and infections can increase your risk of complications during surgery, you will need to be in good overall health. Breast implant removal may be recommended if complications do occur.

Finished Having Children

Because pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect your results, we recommend that you wait to undergo breast augmentation until you are done having children.

Maintain Realistic Expectations

Although breast augmentation can dramatically enhance your breasts, it does have limitations. Additionally, patients should never undergo surgery to please someone else or to achieve their idea of an ideal body.

Certified "Keller Funnel" Physician

Dr. Yee is a KELLER FUNNEL® Certified Physician and uses the KELLER FUNNEL on many of her silicone breast augmentation cases. The KELLER FUNNEL is a cone-shaped, nylon device that allows your surgeon to use a no-touch delivery technique, which is believed to reduce infection-related complications.*

Traditional methods of inserting pre-filled breast implants involved pushing the implant through a small incision, which can cause damage to both the patient’s tissue and the implant’s shell. But with this advancement, Dr. Yee can insert the tip of the funnel into a smaller incision and guide the implant into place without strain and disturbance to the surrounding tissue. Other benefits of the KELLER FUNNEL include:

  • Minimized incision length
  • Decreased bruising and post-operative pain
  • Less force used during surgery
  • Decreased infection risk

Silicone vs. Saline Implants: What's the Difference?

The two types of breast implants offered at our Little Rock, AR, practice are saline implants and silicone implants. Both types come in many sizes and profiles to fit different body types. Dr. Yee can help determine the best implant type as well as the ideal placement and incisions during your consultation.

Saline Implants

Saline implants are filled with saline, a saltwater solution that can be naturally absorbed by the body in the event of a rupture. Candidates must be at least 18 years old to receive saline breast implants.

Silicone Implants

Silicone implants are made up of a gel-like substance contained in a silicone shell. Recipients need to be at least 22 years old in order to choose silicone implants.

What to Expect During Your Recovery

Dr. Yee wants all of her breast augmentation patients to experience the most comfortable recovery, and have as little downtime as possible.  The Rapid Recovery Method is a recently developed form of breast augmentation which gives breast augmentation patients the ability to return to normal activity within 24 hours of surgery. During breast augmentation procedures, the muscle is divided and stretched to create a pocket for the implant. The condition of the breast muscle after a breast augmentation is much like a sports injury to a leg muscle.  When a muscle is injured, torn, or stretched during sports, the most common path to recovery is physical therapy.

The Rapid Recovery Method consists of an advanced procedure technique, alternate pain management, and immediate physical therapy. At our Little Rock office, Dr. Yee has perfected a surgical technique that causes less trauma and inflammation to the breast muscle.  This method is so gentle that many patients find they do not need strong pain medications and can recover with only the use of non-narcotic analgesics. Since there is very little postoperative pain, the patient is able to practice specialized arm and chest exercises almost immediately after the procedure. The combination of brisk arm and chest movements stimulates repair of the damaged muscle and significantly decreases recovery time.

Dr. Yee will have you return to her Little Rock office a week after surgery for a follow-up visit, and then follow your care as needed over the course of the next 12 months. A post-surgical sports bra-like garment is usually recommended for several weeks.  We also recommend resting for the first few days following breast augmentation surgery.  Most women experience some mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness, which should subside in a short time. Much of the discomfort associated with breast surgery can be controlled with pain medication prescribed by Dr. Yee.

Most patients return to work within a few days, and resume normal activity in two to three weeks.

Results & Aftercare

The final results of your breast augmentation may not be apparent until as much as a year after surgery. During this time, your implants will naturally settle lower on your breasts and begin to look more natural.

Your new breast size can give you a new lease on life, allowing you embark on professional, romantic, and personal endeavors with a newfound sense of self-confidence.

To protect your results as best as possible, we recommend wearing supportive bras and maintaining a stable weight. In general, breast implants need to be replaced every decade or so for the best possible look and feel.
