Breast Augmentation Salt Lake City

Serving Plastic Surgery Patients in Salt Lake City

Breast enlargement is one of the most common procedures performed at our plastic surgery office in Salt Lake City. It is done using a general anesthetic at one of the fully accredited surgical centers, and takes about an hour. Recovery time depends on patients’ normal daily activities, but a lot of women return to work within a week, and can resume full physical activities within 3-4 weeks.

This procedure uses either saline or silicone implants. There are, however, several potential disadvantages to all implants. These include: a finite implant lifetime (averaging around 15 years); that they do interfere a little with mammograms; and the risk of capsule contracture, or the thickening / hardening of the breast around the implant. The risk of capsule contracture is around 8%, or one in twelve.

Breast Augmentation Incisions

Incisions can be made through the axilla, at the edge of the areola, and under the breast. Implants are placed either under or over the pectoral muscle, depending on body type and size of implant chosen. In general, a thinner patient, a patient with very small breasts, or a patient choosing a larger implant, should have her implants under the muscle and consider the use of silicone implants.

Choosing the Best Breast Implant for You

Implant size is figured by the number of cubic centimeters (cc) of saline in the implant. Several different sizes are available, ranging from 90cc (very small) to 700cc (very large). The number of cc’s does not directly relate to bra cup size, as different sized women will have different results with the same size implants. Most implants chosen are somewhere between 350cc and 450cc. Patients can discuss their plan for breast augmentation with Dr. Leland chick at our facility in Utah. Measurements and recommendations will be given during the initial consultation.

Can Breast Augmentation Improve Ptosis?

Breast sagging, or ptosis, cannot always be improved with implants. In general, if the nipple is below the level of the inframammary fold, some sort of a breast lift may be needed. If the ptosis is not too advanced, often an implant alone will suffice. More advanced ptosis must be repaired with a breast lift in order to not have the breast simply hang off of the implant; this problem does not look good.
