What is Breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a popular plastic surgery procedure to enhance size and improve the shape of your breasts. It’s considered the most popular surgery for women and can produce some of the most dramatic transformations.

Breast augmentation benefits

Enhanced Volume

If you lack volume, a breast augmentation will allow you to enjoy a fuller and more proportionate look. Breast implants will increase volume which will result in a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Improving Breast Shape and Profile

Implants will significantly enhance your shape and profile. If you have asymmetrical breasts,  a breast augmentation can correct the imbalance through the use of breast implants. The specific implant size and implant placement will help create symmetry.

Corrects Sagging Breasts

If you suffer from drooping or sagging breasts due to weight loss, aging, or loss of volume after pregnancy, a breast lift combined with a breast augmentation will restore firmness and rejuvenate the breasts.

Improved Self Confidence

If the size of your breasts is causing you to have low self-confidence or self-esteem, a breast augmentation can fix both and have you feeling more confident in your body and clothes.

Overall, enhancing your breast size provides one of the most dramatic changes of all cosmetic procedures. Most women experience nothing but a positive impact after going through with a breast augmentation and pursue their aesthetic goals.

Beverly Hills is a famous city in California, right next to Los Angeles. It’s pretty close to the Hollywood Hills and about 12 miles from downtown LA. The city covers an area of about 5.71 square miles and is right next to another small city called West Hollywood. As of the latest count in 2020, around 32,701 people live there, which is a bit less than in 2010.

Beverly Hills is known for being a fancy place with expensive houses and high taxes. It’s famous for Rodeo Drive, where you can shop for all kinds of designer stuff. A lot of celebrities have lived here, and it’s got some famous hotels like the Beverly Hilton and the Beverly Hills Hotel. You’ve probably seen Beverly Hills in movies, TV shows, and other media, both in the US and around the world.

The area started off as a farming community back in 1828, centered around a place called Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas. Beverly Hills became its own city in 1914, thanks to a group of investors who were looking for oil but ended up finding water and decided to build a town instead.

A bit of history: The area that’s now Beverly Hills was first visited by a guy named Gaspar de Portolá in 1769. A couple named María Rita Quinteros de Valdez and her husband settled there in 1828 and called their huge land Rancho Rodeo de las Aguas. In 1854, the ranch was sold to Benjamin Davis Wilson and Henry Hancock. By the 1880s, the land was being split up and sold to people moving in from Los Angeles and the East Coast.

Types of Breast Implants

The decision of which type of breast implant for your “boob job” will depend on your aesthetic goals. Each will have pros and cons. The most common types of breast implants used for a breast augmentation are saline and silicone.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile saltwater solution (saline) after being placed inside the breast pocket. They are typically inserted empty, then filled with saline to the desired size. Saline breast implants are known for their safety because the body can absorb the saline solution and they cost much less than other variants. One other advantage is that they are much easier to adjust after surgery to correct any asymmetry or unevenness.

Silicone Breast Implants

Silicone breast implants are filled with a silicone gel that mimics the feel of natural tissue. Silicone breast implants are commonly considered superior to any other implant because they feel more natural than saline implants. On the contrary, if silicone implants ever rupture, they need to be removed and replaced immediately because the body is unable to absorb the silicone gel that is inside of the silicone implants

Gummy Bear Breast Implants

Cohesive gel breast implants, also known as gummy bear implants, are made of a thicker silicone gel that maintains its shape even if the implant shell is broken. This makes them less likely to leak or rupture but also means they require a slightly larger incision for placement.

Implant Placement

Placing the breast implant is usually done in two primary locations for a breast augmentation. Which surgical insertion location of the implant will come down to a number of factors including:

  • breast implant size
  • body type
  • implant type

The options available are: Submuscular (also known as subpectora or under the musclel) and subglandular (also known as submammary or over the chest muscles).


This technique involves the implants to be positioned under the muscle of the breast. This results in a more natural-looking and feeling outcome. If you have thinner tissue, this placement method will be the best option.


Dr. Tim Neavin will place the implants behind the breast tissue and over the pec muscle with a subglandular placement. it allows a quick recovery time and best if you already have sufficient breast tissue. Additionally, if you play sports, this placement option is the better choice.

Surgical Incisions

There are several different incision locations that can be used to insert the implant:

Inframammary Breast incision

The incision is made along the natural fold underneath, also known as “breast crease.” The surgeon has the most precise implant placement using this technique and the scars are hidden within the fold. It is the most common incision location.

Transumbilical Incision

Also known as “TUBA” this incision is made at the belly button. For patients that want the least visible scarring, it is a good option however it is the least common approach and it is not recommended. 

Transaxillary incision

This approach is when an incision is made at the natural crease of the armpit. From there, the surgeon will create a tunnel all the way to the breast area. It allows for no scarring to be visible but implant placement becomes more difficult. 


Periareolar incision

This technique is when the incision is made right at the lower edge of the areola, where the darker skin meets the lighter skin of the breast. Many patients prefer this incision as it does a good job of concealing the scar while still allowing for precising implant placement and positioning. The disadvantage is that if you plan on breastfeeding, there might be potential changes in nipple sensation compared to other incision locations. 


Recovery after surgery

A breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure and normally patients can go home the same day. Patients will experience some swelling and discomfort after their breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Neavin will provide his patients with a prescription for pain medication so that you are comfortable throughout your recovery after your breast augmentation. A surgical bra (compression garment) should be worn to ease the swelling. 

Additionally, it is important that you care for your surgical incisions by cleaning them gently and applying dressing and ointments. 

Strenuous activity should be avoided for at least the first few weeks after your breast augmentation. Patients can return to normal activity once they feel capable of moving around without pain, which usually happens after the first week or two. 

It is critical for all patients to follow proper instructions throughout the recovery process. This will allow patients to have the best results possible.

    Breast Augmentation FAQ

    In most cases, the placement of the implant does not interfere with milk production or breastfeeding. However, if the incision is made around the areola, there may be a risk of damaging the milk ducts. It is important to discuss any concerns you have about breastfeeding with your surgeon.

    Just like any other surgical procedure, there are some risks. Bleeding, infection, and complication with anesthesia are just some. Another risk is developing capsular contracture. This is when scar tissue forms around the implant which causes the implant to harden and cause discomfort. It also may distort the breast. 

    Like most other surgeries, breast augmentation carries some risks, such as bleeding, infection, or anesthesia complications. There is also a risk of capsular contracture, which is when scar tissue forms around the implant. This causes discomfort and distortion of the breast.

    Implants will not last a lifetime. They may require replacement or removal. The lifespan of the implant can vary depending on placement, type of implant, and also the patient’s physical routine. On average, implants will last between 10-15 years before needing any replacement. Schedule regular follow-up appointments and have the condition of your implants monitored.

    The sensation can be affected but most women do not lose sensation completely. The surgical technique used and the patients anatomy are just some factors which will determine the changes in nipple sensation. 

    Cosmetic procedures are generally not covered by health insurance. In some cases, women who have undergone a mastectomy might qualify to have coverage. You must speak with your health insurance company prior to moving forward with the procedure.

    This is a common question asked by patients who are active and exercise regularly. 

    It is always best to wait at least 4 to 6 weeks before returning back to normal activities after surgery. Do not rush your return as you are recovering as it may cause complications with your surgery and hinder your results. 

    fter breast augmentation, experiencing pain, swelling, and sensitivity in the nipples is considered normal. These symptoms are part of the recovery process following the surgery. To manage discomfort, over-the-counter pain relievers like acetaminophen can be effective. Your doctor might also prescribe specific pain medication. Swelling in the surgical area is expected but should gradually decrease over time, and the scars from the surgery will fade as well.

    Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water and can be adjusted for size during surgery, offering a safety benefit in case of rupture as the body can absorb the saline. However, they may feel less natural and have a higher risk of visible rippling. Silicone implants, filled with a silicone gel, tend to provide a more natural feel and appearance, with less chance of rippling, but pose a higher risk if they leak, as the gel is not absorbed by the body. The choice between saline and silicone depends on individual preferences for feel, appearance, and considerations of safety in case of implant rupture.

    Breast augmentation itself does not increase the risk of breast cancer. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has identified a possible association between breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a rare cancer of the immune system. This condition, known as breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), occurs more frequently in individuals with textured breast implants. The risk is considered very low, but it’s a significant concern that requires further research to fully understand. BIA-ALCL is not breast cancer, but a type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma that can develop in the scar tissue surrounding the implant. Treatment typically involves the surgical removal of the implant and the cancer, and in some cases, chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be necessary. The type of implant fill (saline or silicone) does not appear to affect the risk of developing BIA-ALCL, but implants with textured surfaces have been associated with a higher risk.

    While breast implants can add volume and provide a slight lift, they won’t significantly lift breasts that have a considerable amount of sagging. A breast lift can remove excess skin and lift the breast tissue, often in combination with implants to achieve both increased size and a more lifted, youthful position.

    Yes, scarring is a natural outcome of breast augmentation surgery. The extent and visibility of the scars depend on the surgical technique used, the location of the incisions, and your body’s healing process. Common incision sites include under the breast fold (inframammary), around the nipple (periareolar), or under the arm (axillary), each leaving its own type of scar. Over time, these scars typically become less noticeable and may fade significantly, but they do not disappear entirely. Proper post-operative care and following your surgeon’s instructions can help minimize scarring.

    Breast implant sizes are typically measured in cubic centimeters (cc), and the choice of size depends on the individual’s body frame, existing breast tissue, and desired outcome. Here’s a list of the most common breast implant sizes used in breast augmentation and the general results they achieve:

    1. 150cc to 200cc – Generally considered small in size, these implants can offer a modest increase for women who desire a natural look or a slight enhancement from their original size. Suitable for those looking for a subtle change or to correct minor asymmetries.

    2. 200cc to 250cc – Still on the smaller side, these sizes can help achieve a more noticeable increase while maintaining a natural appearance. They’re often chosen by women who want a modest boost in breast volume without drawing too much attention.

    3. 250cc to 300cc – A popular choice for a balanced look, these sizes offer a moderate increase in breast size. They can significantly enhance the breast’s volume and shape, suitable for individuals seeking a noticeable yet proportionate augmentation.

    4. 300cc to 350cc – This range is among the most popular for breast augmentation, providing a visible increase in size that can be tailored to look either more natural or more augmented, depending on the patient’s body type and the implant profile chosen.

    5. 350cc to 400cc – Ideal for those seeking a more dramatic enhancement, these sizes can create a fuller look. They’re often chosen by women who desire a significant increase in breast size that is still in proportion to their overall body frame.

    6. 400cc to 450cc – Leading towards the larger implant sizes, these can produce a very full and voluptuous look. Suitable for individuals looking for a considerable size increase and have the frame to balance such an enhancement.

    7. 450cc to 500cc – These sizes are considered large and can create a significant change in breast appearance, offering a very full and prominent look. They’re typically chosen by women who desire a dramatic increase in breast size.

    8. 500cc and above – Implants of this size are less common but are chosen by those seeking a very dramatic enhancement. They can significantly alter the silhouette and are more suited to individuals who prefer a very voluptuous look.

    The results achieved by these sizes can vary significantly based on several factors, including the patient’s body frame, the amount of existing breast tissue, the shape and type of implant (e.g., round vs. teardrop, silicone vs. saline), and the placement of the implant (submuscular vs. subglandular). It’s crucial to have a detailed consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and expectations, as they can provide personalized advice and help you choose the size that will best achieve your desired outcome.
