Breast augmentation

When you consider breast implants, you want to know two things: that your surgery will be safe and that you will look great after. Dr. Valdez is a well-known breast surgery performer with many years of training, experience, and over hundreds of breast augmentation surgeries performed.

Breast augmentation may be part of a breast reconstruction procedure, and we often perform a breast lift at the same time as breast augmentation. If you have already had a breast augmentation that did not go well, we can also perform breast augmentation revision surgery.

What can breast augmentation do for me?

Besides helping you feel sexier and more self-confident, breast implants can make your body more proportionate and help your clothes fit better.

What can I expect during a breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that takes less than one hour.

We offer all methods of breast enlargement and incision placement, as well as a variety of implant shapes in both silicone and saline. The advanced techniques Dr. Valdez employs allow us to create incisions in inconspicuous locations, either in the apex of the armpit, periareolar (an incision under the nipple at the areola where the color changes naturally), inframammary (under the crease of the breast), or the TUBA technique, in which the implants are inserted through an incision inside the navel.

We also provide two options for placement of your implants:

All of these choices can be confusing, but don’t worry. During your consultation your surgeon will explain all of the options to you so that you can make informed decisions as to the size, shape, placement, and type of implant you want.

How long does it take to recover from breast augmentation?

Most of our patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days. Lifting and vigorous exercise are restricted for a few weeks, however.

We will provide special instructions to help you recover from your surgery as fast as possible. You can expect some tenderness and a feeling of tightness. You may also experience some bruising and swelling, but these conditions should resolve quickly, leaving you with the beautiful breasts you’ve always wanted.
