Breast Augmentation Surgery in Sarasota

Breast augmentation¹ is a surgery that enlarges the breasts using breast implants. Along with making the breasts larger, breast augmentation can also make the breasts rounder, project more from the chest, and achieve more fullness to the top of the breasts. A breast augmentation can also correct the appearance of tuberous breasts and asymmetric breasts. Breast implants are also a fantastic option for breast reconstruction surgeries. As one of the more commonly performed cosmetic procedures in the United States, breast augmentation is a safe way to achieve the bodily proportions you desire. When patients determine they want to augment their breasts with breast implants, they then can choose from the different types of breast implants that Dr. Jiles offers. The first major choice you will make regarding your implants is the type of breast implant you want.

Types of Breast Implants

Breast implants² come in two different types: saline and silicone. Both types of breast implants provide notable benefits and advantages. At a consultation, Dr. Jiles can explain the types of breast implants and which may provide you with the best results

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile saline water. The outer shell of the implant is made of silicone. Unlike silicone implants, saline breast implants come empty and are filled during surgery.

Many patients believe that saline breast implants do not provide the same standard of natural results as silicone implants. In women who already have a full chest, saline implants may look and feel more natural than patients with little breast tissue.

Saline breast implants do come with benefits and patients may choose saline implants if they have concerns about rupture. The noteworthy benefits of saline implants include:

  • Firmer feel
  • Size adjustable to an extent after surgery
  • Rupture poses no health risk
  • Smaller incision
  • More cost effective
  • May provide a rounder look than silicone implants
  • Suitable for patients 18 and above
  • Rupture usually evident within a few days (if not immediately)
  • Can be used during any breast augmentation technique

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are the most popular choice for modern breast augmentation. Over half of all breast augmentation surgeries in the US use silicone implants. Some plastic surgeons have even switched to silicone implants completely. Dr. Jiles typically places silicone breast implants and has a great deal of experience in achieving patient’s breast augmentation goals.

In general, most patients remark that silicone implants provide a more natural look and feel when compared to saline implants. The newest types of silicone breast implants have the highest safety indications of all their predecessors. Most breast augmentation candidates are eligible for silicone implants. The main benefits of silicone breast implants are:

  • Provide the best results for women with very little breast tissue
  • Less likely to experience capsular contracture
  • Unlikely to rupture
  • Look and feel more natural
  • Wrinkling and rippling uncommon
  • Offer more options for breast implant shape
  • Lower risk of complications

At a consultation with Dr. Emily Jiles, she can make recommendations on the breast implant best suited to meet your goals. Regardless of your breast implant choice, Dr. Jiles aims to provide personalized care that will meet your aesthetic goals while making the process smooth and relaxed.

Breast Augmentation Surgical Technique

When it comes to Sarasota breast augmentations, Dr. Jiles usually places silicone breast implants under the muscle with the inframammary fold incision. This technique is one of the best for breast augmentation because it can provide the best results.

Dr. Jiles performs breast augmentation surgery at the accredited Sarasota Surgical Arts outpatient surgery center. On the day of your breast augmentation, you will come to Sarasota Surgical Arts and placed under general anesthesia.

Dr. Jiles will begin the surgery by making an incision in the inframammary fold. The inframammary fold is the natural crease located where the bottom of the breast meets the chest. She will ensure the length of the incision is as short as possible to ensure precise and optimal placement of the breast implants.

She will then lift the bottom part of the pectoral muscle off the rib cage. This is the first step in placing the implants under the muscle. Dr. Jiles will then carefully create a pocket under the muscle to place the breast implants.

Once the pocket is created, Dr. Jiles will place your chosen breast implant and secure it within the breast pocket. When adequately situated and under the muscle, Dr. Jiles will repeat the process for the other breast. She will then check symmetry and placement before closing the incisions.

Benefits of the Inframammary Fold Incision Breast Augmentation:

Dr. Jiles usually utilizes an inframammary fold incision³ because it offers the greatest amount of control while keeping the incision well hidden. The inframammary fold incision placement is the most popular method for breast augmentation surgery. It provides great benefits for both plastic surgeons and patients. Among the benefits of the inframammary fold technique are:
  • Avoids the milk ducts and nipple structures
  • Allows Dr. Jiles direct access to the breast and muscle
  • Often preferred for breast revision surgery
  • Incision and scarring easy to hide
  • May lead to a more precise placement and better results when compared to other methods
  • Compatible with all breast implant types and sizes

Benefits Of Submuscular Placement Breast Augmentation:

In the early days of breast augmentation, the standard was to place the breast implant in the subglandular position. This means that the implant sat above the muscle and behind the main glands of the breast. The subglandular placement is still performed today, but it is only preferred in a small number of cases. Overall, subglandular implant placement is associated with higher rates of capsular contracture and complications.

Today, most breast augmentations–including those performed by Dr. Jiles–place breast implants below the muscle. While a submuscular placement does come with a longer recovery time, it also carries many benefits like:

  • Less risk of capsular contracture
  • Reduced risk of rippling and wrinkling (especially when using silicone breast implants)
  • Results usually look more natural
  • Interferes less with mammograms
  • Less likely to interfere with breastfeeding
  • Reduced stress on your skin

Recover After Breast Augmentation

Following your Sarasota breast augmentation, you will wake up from anesthesia. You will likely notice an immediate change in the size and look of your breasts. This is not the final result and you may notice some swelling. After you fully wake up, Dr. Jiles will release you to your caregiver.

At this point, you can go home to begin your breast augmentation recovery. Most patients take around a week off work. During the first few days, you will likely notice some side effects like redness, swelling, bruising, pain, and general discomfort. Dr. Jiles will prescribe medications to keep you comfortable during this time. It is also important during the first few days to get up and walk to promote good circulation.

Usually, within a few days after surgery, most patients find that they can be up and around without too much trouble. Dr. Jiles will likely restrict you from lifting anything over ten pounds for at least four to six weeks. While basic exercise is typically fine after two weeks, strenuous exercise or weight lifting will likely be prohibited for up to two months.

Generally, after one week, patients are free to return to work and most aspects of their daily lives. Attending all of your post-operative appointments and staying in good contact with Dr. Jiles will allow her to provide a more accurate timeline.
