Breast Augmentation

A Miami Breast Augmentation procedure is a very common and frequently performed cosmetic surgery that enhances the size, volume and position of the breasts to create a more attractive physique. To achieve the final, desired outcome of patients, breast augmentation surgeries follow six steps.


Since the breast augmentation procedure is a cosmetic surgery, there will be anesthesia required. Medications are administered at the very beginning to take effect and ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process. Anesthesia can be given as different choices such as intravenous sedation, local anesthesia and general anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will recommend the best option for you.

Making The Incision

For breast augmentation procedures, the surgical incisions are made in areas that are inconspicuous to minimize visibility of scars. During your consultation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss the several types of incisions which include 1) the peri-areolar incision around the areolar edge 2) the inframammary fold under the breast and 3) the transaxillary incision that is in the armpit. There is one more option which is the belly-button approach, however it is associated with a high rate of complications.

Together with your plastic surgeon, you will decide which of these available surgical incisions is the most appropriate for you to achieve your desired outcome. The type of incision will depend on the type of breast implant used, the degree of enlargement desire, the anatomy of your body and finally, patient-surgeon preference.

Inserting And Placing The Implants

Once the surgical incision is made, the breast implants are inserted with one of two techniques:

  • A submuscular placement; the implants go under the pectoral muscle
  • A submammary or subglandular placement; the implants go directly under the breast tissue and over the pectoral muscle

The method for insertion and placement of the implants will be dependent on the same factors as the surgical incision.

Closing The Incision Site

Now that the breast implants are positioned correctly, the surgical incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures and surgical tape for the skin. These incisions will eventually fade over time to form scars. The quality of the scar is determined by multiple factors including your genetics, possible infections and nicotine use.

Recovery Phase

The breast augmentation surgery is officially over, and you are transitioned into recovery. Be sure to take time off work to rest and relax so your body can heal well. A good recovery phase will lead to exceptional breast augmentation outcomes.
