About Augmentation Surgery

At Gary J. Rosenbaum, M.D., P.A. Plastic Surgery in Miami Beach, FL, we seek to provide the most natural and long-lasting results possible when considering your breast augmentation options. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Rosenbaum is experienced in the surgical performance of a wide variety of breast augmentation procedures, but is exceptionally skilled in breast implants and fat grafting, or fat transfer augmentations. Both augmentation surgeries yield favorable results, but the procedure most suited for your personal aesthetic goals can be determined during a preliminary consultation with Dr. Rosenbaum at our Miami Beach office.

Augmentation Options

Fat Grafting – Breast enhancement using fat grafts or fat transfer (lipoaugmentation) rather than silicone or saline implants employ fat suctioned from the patient’s buttocks, thighs, or other fatty areas. Lipoaugmentation of the breasts may offer patients permanent breast augmentation with a natural look and feel with the benefit of body contouring through liposuction — without the requirement for incisions or implants.

Breast Implants – As breast enhancement via fat grafting is limited in size by the number of fat deposits present on a patient's body, breast implants are also a viable option for augmentation. Breast implants can be silicone or saline, and can be as large or small as the patient desires with long-lasting, naturally appearing results. 

Ideal Candidates

Patients who want breast augmentation surgery may be ideal candidates if they meet some of the following criteria:

  • They are unhappy with the current size and shape of their breasts
  • They have lost the firmness of your breast due to weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding
  • One breast is larger than the other
  • The size of the breasts is not in proportion to the rest of the body
  • To restore the shape of the breasts after a mastectomy or lumpectomy

What to Expect

Before you have breast augmentation surgery, you will have a complete physical examination. Overall good health is necessary for a successful result. When deciding which type of procedure to choose, keep in mind that age can be a determining factor. One of the distinct differences between saline and silicone breast implants is the age restriction. Patients must be 18 years or older in age in order to receive saline implants, and at least 21 for silicone. In addition, patients desiring fat transfer augmentation must have sufficient fat transfers sites on the the body to qualify for this procedure. Existing native breast tissue, breast shape, and skin elasticity are other factors to take into consideration. Measurements will be taken of the breasts as well as the chest wall, including base width, to help determine the best implant type. This evaluation will help Dr. Rosenbaum develop the best breast augmentation plan.

Anticipated Results

After surgery, patients can expect to feel sore, so they will be given post-surgical care instructions and pain medication may be prescribed. Each augmentation patient will leave in a sports bra and clean surgical dressings. There will be some bruising and swelling for about 1 – 2 weeks. It is recommended for patients to take it easy for those two weeks to heal and rebuild strength after surgery. Most patients experience a full recovery between 6 – 8 weeks. Most women find that their breasts look and feel totally natural within just a few short months.
