Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breasts through the insertion of saline or silicone implants. Dr. Artur Fahradyan offers personalized breast augmentation surgeries to help you make informed choices about your appearance and enhance your overall silhouette.

Enhance Breast
Shape & Size

Breast augmentation aims to enhance the shape and size of a person’s breasts. It involves the insertion of silicone or saline implants beneath the breast tissue or chest muscle to achieve the desired volume and contour. This surgery is sought for various reasons, including addressing asymmetry, restoring breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss, or boosting self-confidence and body image. Dr. Artur Fahradyan offers various types of breast augmentation after a thorough evaluation and consultation.

Breast Augmentation FAQs

How does breast augmentation work?

Breast augmentation involves silicone or saline implants to enhance breast shape or size. Dr. Fahradyan makes an incision, usually in the crease under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit, depending on your anatomy and goals. He creates a pocket behind the breast tissue (subglandular) or beneath the chest muscle (submuscular), after which the chosen implant is inserted. Finally, the incision is closed with sutures or surgical tape.

What is the typical recovery time for breast augmentation surgery?

The initial recovery period lasts a few days to a week. However, it may take several weeks to months to fully resume strenuous activities or see the final results.

How long do breast implants last?

While breast implants are not considered lifetime devices, they can last for many years. On average, many women may need implant replacement or removal after 10 to 20 years.

Can I breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery?

In most cases, breast augmentation should not interfere with breastfeeding. Please inform your surgeon of your plans, as implant placement techniques may affect milk production and flow.

Will breast augmentation surgery affect breast cancer screenings?

Mammograms can still be performed after breast augmentation. However, inform the technician about your implants, as additional views or techniques may be required.

Can I choose any breast size I want?

Dr. Fahradyan will guide you in selecting a size that suits your body proportions and aligns with your aesthetic goals while maintaining a natural look.
