Breast Augmentation in Cambridge, MA

The procedure of Breast Augmentation can include use of either implants or fat transfer to alter the shape and size of the breast. If a patient requires correction of sagging or loss of volume in their breasts (associated with age, weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding) a Breast Enhancement procedure will be used.

A person who is healthy, not pregnant or breastfeeding would be a typical candidate for a Breast Augmentation procedure. The reason patients usually ask for this procedure is because they are dissatisfied with their breasts’ current size, shape, symmetry or volume.

The breasts looking unnatural after a Breast Augmentation procedure is one of the main concerns for many patients. However, this can easily be avoided when having surgery, the more superficial an implant is (when placed above the muscle) the more obvious the implant contour will be leaving the breast with a more unnatural appearance. When performing this procedure, Dr Markarian achieves a more natural look by placing a smaller diameter implant under the muscle.

By placing the implants low, to achieve the patient’s desired look as soon as possible, Dr. Markarian avoids the waiting for the implants to “drop”. The new breast crease is also where Dr. Markarian aims to conceal any incision made during surgery.

Who is a good candidate for Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast Augmentation, as with many other cosmetic procedures, is a major surgery and not suitable for everyone.

A good candidate is someone who is dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts due to issues of size, shape, volume or symmetry. Patients considering a Breast Augmentation should only do this to improve their own well-being and not to please someone else. When having this procedure for themselves, patient satisfaction is usually high.

Breast Augmentation patients may also be a previous patient who now wishes to alter the size of the initial implants as the current ones no longer suit their active lifestyle or are in line with the current trend of a more natural appearance.

Whilst not being strictly classed as a breast enhancement (in this case breast reconstruction) the procedure is also performed on patients as part of their treatment for breast cancer.

What are the different ways to increase the size, shape and projection of breasts?

There is a subtle change in trend, from having huge breasts and a tiny waist, to a more natural look in breast appearance and size. This can be achieved by not having the implants placed high but in a way that would allow for a more natural look with a curved but not overly voluptuous cleavage. Although, placement of the implants is a personal choice, prospective patients should consider the end result – of proportion to their own figure and not just an increase in cup size.

There are various types of implants available. Silicone implants – including the new gummy bear implant (gel filled) and saline implants (filled with a sterile saline solution), all of which can help a patient achieve their desired look and feel.

Patients also have a choice between a round shape or teardrop (anatomical) shape. A more natural shape can be achieved using the teardrop shape but this may also prove to be the more expensive implant.

Fat transfer is also a procedure which can be performed during a Breast Augmentation. This procedure involves removing excess fat from one area of the body (via liposuction) which is then injected into the breast. Someone who is looking for a more subtle change to their breasts or are concerned with the risks associated with other types of Breast Augmentation would be an ideal candidate for this type of procedure.

The Aesthetic Society suggests that when a patient is deciding on which implant to choose, the determining factors should be their desired size increase, breast anatomy, body type and skin elasticity.
