Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure to enhance breast size, shape, and projection. Most often performed for cosmetic purposes, it may also be performed to correct breast asymmetry or to restore breast volume following dramatic weight loss, age-related volume loss, or when breasts have been affected by pregnancy and breastfeeding. The plastic surgeons at The Ariel Center are brilliant at performing custom breast augmentations.

Breast augmentation, what is it?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves using breast implants or fat grafting to increase the size, change the shape, and improve the symmetry of the breasts. It involves placing breast implants beneath the breast tissue or chest muscles. Breast implants are available in different sizes, shapes, and textures. The type of breast implant that is best for you will be based on your anatomy and what you envision for your figure.

What are the benefits of breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation surgery can do a lot to improve the look of your breasts. It can:

  • Increase breast fullness and projection
  • Improve the balance of breast and hip contours, for a lovely, balanced figure
  • The ability to achieve the cleavage you have always envisioned
  • Confidence in your body image

If you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, breast augmentation surgery may be right for you.

What will my recovery be like after breast augmentation?

Recovery from breast augmentation is different for everyone, but there are some general guidelines that we will implement once your procedure is complete.

What are the different types of breast implants?

There are two basic types of implants: saline and cohesive silicone gel. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water, while cohesive silicone gel implants are filled with a thick silicone gel. Both types of implants have a silicone outer shell. Saline implants are less costly than cohesive silicone gel implants. Some find that cohesive silicone implants more closely mimic the bounce, weight, and feel of natural breast tissue. When choosing a type of implant, it is important to discuss the pros and cons with our surgeon. Ultimately, the decision will reflect your individual needs and preferences.

Is breast augmentation safe?

Breast augmentation surgery is safe and effective, but as with any surgical procedure, there are some risks and potential side effects that should be considered before moving forward with surgery. The main factor that will determine your procedure’s outcome is your plastic surgeon's skill and experience. The Ariel Center in Tijuana is a state-of-the-art, ultra-safe, certified surgery center, with patient health and safety standards that exceed many US or Canadian-based hospitals.
