WHAT IS BREAST AUGMENTATION SURGERY?

Breast augmentation, also knowns as breast implant surgery, is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. and one of our most popular services. Breast augmentation can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look through the placement of saline or silicone implants in the breast.

Breast implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. Both implant types are very safe, and each offers its own advantages. Dr. Koo will help you decide which kind is right for you. During surgery, we will place the implants behind each breast, underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle.

After many years, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved silicone breast implants for breast augmentation surgery. We are proud to offer patients the option of silicone gel-filled breast implants, since they are much softer and feel more natural than saline-filled breast implants. Another very attractive appeal of breast augmentation using breast implants is the results are so instant and very affordable.

Dr. Koo and her husband experienced a heartwarming encounter during a dinner outing at a local small restaurant. A former breast augmentation patient of Dr. Koo’s warmly greeted her as they passed by with her husband and two children. Shortly after, the woman’s husband, upon learning of Dr. Koo’s identity, approached their table and showered Dr. Koo with praise for her exceptional work, expressing deep gratitude for the positive impact her surgeries had on their lives. Dr. Koo’s husband, an orthopedic surgeon renowned for his work in saving professional athletes’ careers and restoring mobility to patients, couldn’t help but remark, “Wow, I NEVER get that kind of response from my patients, and I make them pain-free and mobile!”

Choose from a variety of breast implant options, including:

  • Saline (“tear drop”) implants: Ideal for certain body types, with a lower risk of capsular contracture, though they may show ripples over time.
  • Silicone implants: Long-lasting and preferred by many, especially when placed partially under the muscle for softer, more natural results.
  • Cohesive gel (“gummy bear”) implants: Offer a shaped, natural look and are suitable for specific cases like tuberous breasts.

The typical lifespan of breast most breast implants ranges from 10-20 years.

The breast augmentation procedure, lasting one to two hours, is performed with meticulous care. Incisions are made in inconspicuous places on the breast to minimize scar visibility.

Dr. Koo offers multiple options, including:

  • Transaxillary (in the armpit)
  • Inframammary (in the crease on the underside of the breast
  • Periareolar (around the areola, the dark skin around the nipple)
  • Transumbilical / TUBA approach (placed endoscopically through an incision in the navel)

If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, the choice between subglandular and submuscular placement depends on various factors, including lifestyle, anatomy, and desired cosmetic goals. Dr. Koo will carefully assess these factors during a consultation, ensuring the most appropriate placement option is recommended for your unique needs.

Subglandular Breast Implant Placement

Subglandular breast implant placement is when the implant is placed underneath the breast tissue but on top of the breast muscle. This option is preferred for patients with substantial natural breast tissue. Benefits of subglandular implant placement include Benefits of subglandular implant placement include accommodating larger implant sizes, providing greater lift, reducing recovery time, and facilitating easier implant placement.

Submuscular Breast Implant Placement

Submuscular placement is when the Dr. Koo places the implant underneath the chest muscle. This option offers improved coverage and a more natural appearance, especially for patients with less natural breast tissue. Other benefits also include less risk of capsular contracture (post-operative tightening around the implant) and rippling, reducing interference with mammogram examinations. Possible disadvantages include the need for drainage tubes and elevated pain in the first few days following surgery.

In the TUBA procedure, implants cannot be placed beneath the chest wall.
