What is a Breast Augmentation (Boob Job)?

Breast augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery that involves the use of implants or body fat to improve breast appearance. This procedure takes 1-2 hours and is usually performed under local anesthesia. Implants come in different shapes, sizes, shell textures, and filler materials to help patients achieve their desired look.

Type of Breast Augmentation

Fat Transfer “Natural” Breast Augmentation

Fat transfer breast augmentation involves taking fat from another part of your body through liposuction and reinjecting it into the breasts to enhance their shape and increase volume. The abdomen, hips, thighs, or flanks are common areas for harvesting lipids. Our surgical team will first determine how much excess fat can be safely removed before injecting it into the breasts This procedure results in a softer, more natural feel and appearance. You might gain half to a cup size.

Breast Augmentation With Implants

Breast augmentation with implants involves surgically inserting silicone or saline implants to increase the size and change the shape of the breasts. The implants are placed under or over the chest muscle during the procedure through carefully made incisions. This option may be preferred when a patient desires a significant increase in cup size that exceeds what fat transfer may achieve. Some people want rounder or “fuller” contours that are hard to sustain over a long time in natural breasts due to gravity and other factors. In such cases, breast augmentation with implants is the best option.
Difference Between Saline and Silicone Breast Implants? Banner

What is the difference Between Saline and Silicone Breast Implants?

Saline and silicone are the two most common materials used in breast augmentation surgery. Saline implants are filled with sterilized salt water. They have been approved by the FDA for many years and are considered safe. The second type is made of silicone gel, which closely resembles human fat. Many women prefer silicone over saline implants because they look and feel more natural. Another advantage is that they do not leak as much. Silicone implants are also FDA-approved and completely safe.
“There are two types of implants. The saline implant is basically like a shell. This shell here is basically rolled like a cigar, placed under the muscle or above the muscle, and then there’s a tube that goes in here that you use to fill the implant. You can use whatever amount of saline that you need to place in the implant, 300, 400, 500, whatever the amount is. The other kind is what we call the silicone or the gel, and basically, these are, sometimes called “gummy bear,” and they don’t have any valves or anything. It goes as-is into the pocket that we create.”

Discover the "Gummy Bear" Implants We Use

“Gummy bear” implants are made of a cohesive gel that mimics the look and feel of natural breasts. This material maintains its shape for longer, so replacements are needed less frequently than in other types. “Gummy bear” implants also have a much lower leak rate.
The Solomon Cosmetic Center in Tampa offers a variety of FDA-approved breast implants and matches you with the right option. You can also get a fat transfer augmentation. Our skilled surgical team has years of experience with breast surgery and works closely with each patient to educate and guide them through the process.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

Tests and Consultation Before Surgery Banner

Tests and Consultation Before Surgery

After a thorough medical exam and breast augmentation consultation, Dr. Solomon develops a surgical plan. His expert opinion helps to formulate goals and set realistic expectations. The treatment plan also includes professional details, such as the incision location.
The type of implant is chosen based on patient needs and aesthetic goals. It can be placed through incisions in the crease below the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit. The pocket can be located behind the breast gland tissue (subglandular), slightly deeper under the fascial connective tissue (subfascial), or beneath the pectoral muscle (subpectoral).

The Surgery

The entire operation takes 1-2 hours and includes the following procedures:
Anesthesia
A breast augmentation is performed under local anesthesia, which means that you will not be asleep during the surgery. The doctor may also decide to combine it with IV sedation. It will put you in the so-called “twilight state,” which resembles a light sleep. You will remain conscious but feel deep calm.
Incisions
Next, Dr. Solomon makes an incision, either under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit area, depending on the physical characteristics, goals, and implant type.
Breast Implant Placement
A pocket is created either under the chest muscle or directly behind the breast tissue. The implant is then inserted into this area and positioned correctly.
Closing Incisions
Smoking can impair the body’s ability to heal properly, so candidates are generally advised to quit smoking prior to undergoing BBL surgery.

Recovery From Breast Augmentation Banner

Recovery From Breast Augmentation

Recovery time after breast surgery is nearly 4-6 weeks. You must wear a compression garment all the time for the first 14 days to minimize swelling and support breasts as they heal. The period and complexity of your rehabilitation will be influenced by the size and position of your implants.
Most bruising and swelling should resolve within 14-21 days. However, some of these symptoms may persist for a few months. Patients are advised to avoid strenuous exercise and overhead arm movements for 4-6 weeks after surgery to avoid damaging the incision sites.
Over-the-counter medication can help to relieve any pain or discomfort during the recovery period. The body will absorb most stitches over time, but some may need removal around 1-2 weeks after surgery. Patients should notice an improvement in the shape and size of their breasts soon after the operation. However, it may take a few months for the breasts to settle into their final position and appearance. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities after nearly 2 weeks.
Smoking is prohibited during the entire recovery period because it could cause an infection at the incision site, necrosis, and even implant loss.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

The reasons for undergoing breast augmentation are as unique as each patient. There is no ideal option or solution to breast enlargement because every woman’s body is different. However, patients with the following characteristics will benefit the most from this surgery:

Health

Candidates should be in good physical and mental health. They will be checked for medical conditions or illnesses that could impair healing or increase risks.
Patients should have realistic expectations about the results of breast implant surgery. They must understand limitations and the most likely outcomes. However, with Dr. Solomon’s professionalism, you can be sure that you will receive the best results.
The best candidates have strong breast tissue and elastic skin to accommodate implant size. Weaker tissue may not recovery as effectively.
Smoking and alcohol severely impact the healing process. You should be able to avoid nicotine for a minimum of 4 weeks before and after breast augmentation surgery.
The size of some patients’ breasts may make their body figures imbalanced. It is usually challenging for such individuals to find clothes that fit properly. Thus, breast augmentation is a perfect solution that will give them the freedom to wear any garment they want.

The Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

The Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery Banner

Improved Self-Confidence and Body Image

Many women report feeling more self-assured and positive about their appearance after a boob job. Having breasts that better match their desired size and shape boosts confidence.

Regaining Breast Volume After Pregnancy and Breastfeeding

Pregnancy and nursing can cause breasts to lose volume and firmness for some women. Augmentation is commonly used to return them to a pre-baby state.

Achieving Better Symmetry Between Breasts

Breasts that are significantly different in size or shape can be made more proportional through implant surgery.

Feeling More Youthful and Vibrant

The increased fullness and lift implants provide can have a rejuvenating effect for many women.

The Ability to Better Fill Out Clothing

Some patients feel that they are limited in the types of tops, swimsuits, or dresses they can wear before breast enhancement. Implants can make clothes fit more nicely.

The Cost of Breast Augmentation in Tampa

Breast augmentation cost in Tampa, FL, typically ranges from $3,000 to $13,000. The price varies based on the type of implants used, whether they are saline or silicone, the surgeon’s experience and credentials, and additional fees for the facility and anesthesia.
Usually, silicone or “gummy bear” implants are more expensive than alternatives. However, we feel strongly that patients should not have to compromise what they want due to price. Unlike other cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Solomon will charge the same amount for breast augmentation procedures with silicone “gummy bear” implants as he would for saline types. He will meet with you in his office to discuss all options and pricing.
