Reshape & Enhance
Breast Augmentation, also referred to as Augmentation Mammoplasty or Breast Aug, is a surgical procedure that reshapes and enlarges the breasts. It is our most popular procedure and can provide an amazing improvement in your beauty and self-esteem. Breast Augmentation is usually performed to enlarge small underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have lost their shape due to having children or weight loss. The breast implants can consist of either saline or silicone, depending on what our surgeons think will be best for the patient. We offer the newest implant designs and techniques to achieve a natural-looking and sexy volume enhancement.
A Fuller, More Youthful Look
Breast Augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, a Breast Lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Our surgeon will assist you in making this decision.
There are several options and several types of implants and even options for how the implant will be located in the body. Patients can choose silicone or saline as the fluid inside the implant, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages to be weighed by the patient in consultation with their surgeon:
The gummy bear implant is a relatively new arrival in the breast implant manufacturing industry. It is a departure from the traditional shell-and-filler design in that it a more solid piece. The silicone used is at a higher concentration, resulting in a firmer feel. This silicone also has a lower likelihood of leaking if there is a rupture in the implant.
You can have your implants placed above the muscle (subglandular) or below the muscle (subpectoral). Your plastic surgeon will decide which placement location is best for you based on your goals, breast type and other factors. The location choice will be part of your surgical plan.

Safe and Trusted Plastic Surgery
Plastic surgery is very safe when performed by board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeons in a surgery center that is licensed, like Estetica Institute. However, each patient must be viewed on a case-by-case basis and should be cleared prior to undergoing plastic surgery. Therefore, our patients have a formal history and physical examination and a full set of laboratories done prior to general anesthesia when the surgeon considers it necessary. We strive to offer the best Breast Augmentation West Palm Beach has to offer.
Consequently, during your consultation, our surgeon and patient coordinator will discuss the potential risks, complications, and side effects of the surgery. Our surgeons are board-certified plastic surgeons in West Palm Beach with a staff of over 20, providing patients with the very best in plastic and cosmetic surgery.

How the procedure is performed
Our expert anesthesia team will place the patient under IV sedation. Breast Augmentation is performed by surgically inserting breast implants through a small incision made below the breast or in the lower part of the areola. Prior to the surgery, the doctor and the patient will discuss the best place to insert the implant. In order to achieve the desired volume and shape, the surgeon will discuss at length with each patient what their ideal implant size selection will be.
Once the incisions are made, the surgeon creates a pocket either behind the breast tissue (subglandular) or beneath the pectoralis major muscle or chest muscle (submuscular). Other positions include the advanced subfascial technique or dual plane procedure. The breast implants are positioned within the pocket, and the incisions are then closed with layered sutures and tape. It usually takes about one hour to perform, and most patients go home within 30 minutes after the procedure. At Estetica Institute, we have dramatically improved this procedure and the post-operative discomfort by avoiding any bleeding and manipulating the muscle and breast tissue very gently. In addition, long-acting anesthetic blocks are injected around the ribs at the end of the Breast Augmentation surgery, thus almost eliminating any pain for several hours after the procedure.
Love the Way You Look
After your breast augmentation surgery, your breasts may take a few weeks to settle and for the swelling to subside, but the final results will leave you feeling confident and beautiful. As time goes on, breast lift surgery or implant exchange can help maintain your desired appearance. Trust our experienced surgeons at Estética Institute to help you achieve your ideal augmentation.
Transforming a New You
After Breast Augmentation surgery, you just should stay home and rest in the 24 hours following surgery. You will be sent home with a package of instructions. Patients may take a shower 48 hours after surgery. Patients will wear a surgical bra that we provide for about a week. Following the rest period, we recommend an early return to normal activity, being mindful of extra strenuous activities or workouts. After seven days, the patient will return to the facility to have her sutures removed, and easy breast massage techniques are taught to minimize the chance of capsular contractures. Of course, we provide pain medications that you probably need to take for only a couple of days, although the discomfort levels vary from patient to patient. Our caring and highly trained staff is here to help from your initial consultation through your recovery. The doctors are just a phone call away 24-7 for you after any surgical procedure.
