How is a breast augmentation in Miami completed?


The first way a breast augmentation in Miami can be done is through a peri-areolar incision. The peri-areolar incision can be made at the top of the areola or at the bottom of the areola. The areola size must be large enough to allow placement. This may be a limiting factor in women with smaller areola who want larger silicone or gummy bear implants. The incision generally heals well as it is placed in a natural pigment transition zone. A property executed peri-areolar breast augmentation should have no impact on breast feeding or lactation as the ducts should not be disturbed. The plane of dissection runs parallel to the ducts and not perpendicular. Sensation is always a concern with any form of breast augmentation. The incision may compromise small portion of the cutaneous sensitivity to the areola and nipple. In addition, the rates of infection and capsular contracture may be higher for this approach due to the proximity to the bacteria present in and below the nipple areola complex. Once again, this all comes down to weighing the risks and benefits for each individual and Dr. Salomon is an expert at helping you understand all of these elements. The vertical lift can be used for more severe droopiness.  This lift involves a vertical and a peri-areolar incision and is referred to as circum-vertical, or lollipop lift. Dr. Salomon always tries to minimize the scars and will only use the full breast lift pattern if it is absolutely mandatory for the best shape and lift. The last breast lift pattern is the wise pattern mastopexy also referred to as the inverted T lift, the anchor lift, or the full breast lift. Breast lifts and scar patterns are complicated. Do not worry about this. Dr. Salomon will help you select the breast augmentation in Miami that is right for you and will make this process and procedure easy.


What is fat transfer Miami breast augmentation?


A fat transfer Miami breast augmentation essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results. Fat transfer breast augmentation risks include:

  • Cysts
  • Infection
  • Micro-calcification
  • Necrosis (death) of fat cells
  • Possibility that some of the transferred fat cells will leave the breast area

Your plastic surgeon may also have you use a tissue expansion system during the weeks before your breast augmentation surgery to improve your results. You may have to have touch-up injections to retain your improved shape if you choose this surgery. Another type of surgery is a breast lift. Also known as mastopexy, it raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted. A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity

Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look fuller, consider breast lift and Miami breast augmentation. On the other hand, if you want smaller breasts, consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery. If you would like to schedule a consult with our office, contact us today!
