Breast Augmentation Surgery Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Breast Augmentation surgery was reported as being one of the top five most commonly performed cosmetic surgery in 2020 in the United States. The procedure helps patients to enhance their breast size or alter the shape of their breasts with various different types of breast implants.

What is Breast Augmentation Surgery in Cape Cod?

Breast Augmentation surgery refers to two different procedures which can be undertaken to enhance breast size. A Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation can be performed, where fat is taken from other areas of the body and inserted into the breasts, or breast implants can be inserted. Breast implant surgery is performed more frequently than a fat transfer procedure and is typically undertaken by patients who are insecure over the size of their breasts or want to restore their breasts after pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging or weight loss has caused them to lose breast volume.

What are the different types of Breast Implants?

Breast Implant surgery is a highly customizable procedure as there are four key aspects that a patient must consider when deciding on the most suitable type of implants including:

  • Content
  • Position
  • Shape
  • Volume

These four factors will significantly impact the results of your procedure so it is important to research the various implant options and spend time considering your ideal result. The size of the implant most suitable for your body can be advised during your consultation, as well as what shape and projection would likely look best. For additional information on Breast Implants, you can view our blog on Breast Implants Explained.

Although some patients feel confident in the type of implant they desire, it is still important to contact a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon who has extensive experience for a consultation so that you can discuss your options and gain expert advice and information on the benefits of each implant type and the associated risks.

Should I have a Breast Lift and Augmentation?

Many patients have concerns over both small and sagging or low positioned breasts. In these cases, patients tend to opt for a Breast Augmentation as well as a Breast Lift procedure so both these concerns can be addressed in one surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Markarian can help to advise on your suitability to undergo both procedures and provide you with additional information on what undergoing a Breast Lift alongside a Breast Augmentation involves.

Generally, patients may consider a Breast Lift if they are hoping to:

  • Correct uneven or downward pointing nipples
  • Reduce large areolas
  • Restore the position and shape of their breasts post weight-loss or pregnancy.

If you are considering either a Breast Augmentation procedure in Cape Cod or a Breast Augmentation with a Breast Lift, then the first step you should take is to seek out a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon that specializes in these procedures.

What is the price of a Breast Augmentation in Cape Cod, MA?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the total cost of a Breast Augmentation procedure can range from $6,000 to $12,000. However, the specific total cost of a Breast Augmentation procedure in Cape Cod, Massachusetts will significantly vary depending on various factors. The location of your surgery as well as the surgeon’s expertise and credentials will impact the cost of the surgery. Furthermore, the type of Breast Augmentation procedure and the specific type of breast implants will also determine the cost. For example, saline implants are much cheaper than any type of silicone implants and tear-drop-shaped implants are generally more expensive than implants that are round. This means that the exact price of surgery can only be provided after your consultation when the specific factors of your procedure have been decided.

Breast Augmentation procedures are unlikely to be financed by insurance providers due to the fact they are an elective surgery, undertaken for purely aesthetic reasons. Despite this, some patients who desire the surgery after being impacted by an illness may qualify for partial or full surgical coverage. You should check with your specific insurance provider to find out what your policy covers.

What if I want to remove my Breast Implants?

Breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime and so will likely need removing or replacing at some point in the future. However, some patient’s breast implants can last for around 20 years before they need replacing, while other patients may suffer from complications, or simply change their minds meaning their implants are removed far earlier than this.

Some patients desire to have their implants replaced as they wish to change the type, size, or shape of their implants. It is reported that 41% of Breast Revision surgeries are performed on patients who regretted their initial choice of implant. This is why it is important that patients perform significant research into the procedure and the various types of implants so that they are less likely to later regret their decision. Additionally, meeting with a Board-Certified Surgeon who has extensive breast augmentation expertise is important so that you get the best advice on the most suitable implants for your individual needs.

Other patients require their breast implants to be removed as they experience an issue with their implants. For example, implants can leak or rupture which can cause pain in the breasts or cause the implant to deflate. In these cases, the implants can be removed and replaced to resolve any pain and to ensure that newly filled implants are inserted.

Finally, the main medical reason breast augmentation patients require their implants to be removed is because they are suffering from capsular contracture. This is where the capsule that forms around the implants contracts and squeezes the implant. If you believe you may be suffering from this, you may want to consider a Capsular Contracture treatment.
