What to Know When You’re Considering Breast Implants

Once reserved for the wealthy and famous, breast augmentation has become more affordable and much more mainstream than in past decades. Today, women of all ages have the option to enhance their appearance by getting breast implants. For many women, self-esteem is closely linked to appearance. When a woman looks in the mirror and sees only flaws and imperfections, she’ll be plagued with self-doubt. A woman who looks in the mirror and is happy with what she sees will be able to face the world with confidence.


Whether you long to fill out your bikini, to look pretty in a clingy cashmere sweater, or simply to be happy with the reflection that you see in the mirror, implants will transform the appearance of your breasts. Mother Nature and genetics may not have gotten your breasts quite get right. Fortunately, Dr. Mirrafati and the team at Mira Aesthetic Medical Center & Spa can give you the breasts you long for.


Breast augmentation, or Augmentation Mammaplasty, is a procedure that increases a patient’s breast size and/or corrects asymmetrical breasts. Sometimes, breast augmentation surgery is performed in conjunction with a breast lift. A breast lift is used to reverse sagginess due to aging or pregnancy.

Before your breast implants are inserted, you’ll come in for one or more consultations to determine exactly what size and shape you want your breasts to be after surgery. You’ll also discuss the pros and cons of the three options for implant placement (under the breast, under the areola, or under the armpit). You will undergo a thorough medical exam to make sure that you’re healthy enough for surgery, and choose whether you will have general anesthesia or IV sedation. Dr. Mirrafati will send you home with preoperative instructions designed to minimize the risk of surgical complications.

Your breast augmentation surgery will be performed in an outpatient surgical facility, and will probably take between one and two hours. While you are under anesthesia, the doctor will make a small incision, create a small pocket, and place the silicone-shelled implant into the pocket. He will inflate the breast implants with saline until they reaches your desired cup size. Then he will close the incision with small sutures and place a surgical dressing to protect the wound.

After a brief recovery period, you’ll probably be allowed to return home. You’ll be given a special support bra to wear until your breasts heal, usually in about 3 weeks.
