What Can Breast Augmentation Treat?
Naturally Small Breasts
This procedure can increase the size of naturally small breasts. Patients can achieve a more pleasing aesthetic tailored to their liking. Implants are available in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, allowing for a subtle or noticeable enhancement.
The changes that occur during and after pregnancy tend to affect a woman’s breasts. Breast enlargement with implants can restore fullness to breasts that have decreased in size after pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Breast augmentation is also an excellent option for improving asymmetrical breasts. Through the placement of saline or silicone implants, patients can enjoy natural-looking results to gain the confidence they desire and a more beautiful figure.
“I heavily researched 2 surgeons and am so glad I went with Dr. Alexander. His bedside manner is the best I have ever seen and I deal with physicians on a regular basis for work. He addressed my concerns and anxiety I had about the actual surgery. I appreciated how accessible the office was after the surgery when I had questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander to anyone looking for a very personal and professional experience.”
“Dr. Alexander and his staff are incredible. He is one of the most caring and professional surgeons I have ever met - and that is saying something because I work in a hospital.

Breast augmentation recovery typically takes several weeks, but most patients can return to work after the first week. Patients can expect to experience some swelling and soreness during breast implant recovery due to the incisions and implants settling into the chest. Most patients can resume most daily activities one week after surgery; however, it is important to avoid all strenuous upper-body activity, including lifting and carrying anything of weight, for at least six weeks or until you have been cleared by Dr. Alexander. Patients will also be instructed to wear a compression bra during recovery to protect their new augmented breasts.
It is important to follow all of Dr. Alexander’s instructions and avoid strenuous activity to ensure a smooth recovery process and optimal results.
Breast augmentation scars are a concern for many women. Fortunately, Dr. Alexander uses the most advanced techniques of plastic surgery to minimize scarring. As with any surgery, there is a risk of visible scarring; however, both periareolar and inframammary scars are relatively inconspicuous as they are placed in areas that are usually covered with bras and bathing suits. Breast implant scars tend to fade over time and heal well. It is important to keep the healing incisions out of the sun. Topical scar reduction creams can be applied once the incisions have fully closed and healed.
Over 20 years of experience and multiple board certifications make Dr. Alexander uniquely qualified to perform your surgery. Over the years, he has performed thousands of breast augmentation surgeries. Just like fingerprints, no two breasts are the same. Dr. Alexander creates results based on each patient’s unique needs and goals. He has enhanced a variety of different breast sizes and shapes, and patients appreciate the value of this experience.
The cost of breast augmentation depends greatly on the techniques used, anesthesia fees, and implant choice. Dr. Alexander’s staff will be able to provide you with an exact amount following your breast augmentation consultation. Financing options are available, which can be discussed without patient care coordinators after your consultation.
Patients experience less pain after breast implants with long-lasting medication that Dr. Alexander administers during surgery. Typically, initial discomfort lasts 48 hours and gradually decreases each day. Post-surgery pain can be managed with oral medication. Dr. Alexander will recommend the pain management medicine that is best suited for you. Most patients find that pain after breast augmentation is well-tolerable.
Ideal candidates for the breast augmentation procedure desire additional breast fullness, whether they have always been unhappy with their small breasts or their breasts have experienced deflation after pregnancy or weight loss. Candidates should be in good overall health, not smoke, and be realistic about their results.
Saline implants are approved for women over the age of 18. Silicone implants are approved for women over 22.
Smoking disrupts the healing process and can lead to post-op complications. You should not smoke for at least two weeks before breast augmentation surgery and four weeks after surgery to heal as quickly and efficiently as possible.
The breast implant procedure usually takes one to two hours. This length may increase if you choose to combine your breast implant surgery with a breast lift or a Mommy Makeover, which can also include tummy tuck surgery and liposuction.
Breast augmentation results are long lasting, but many patients require some adjustment after a few years. Pregnancy, aging, weight gain, and personal habits can affect the look of your breasts over time, so you may eventually want further enhancement.
If you have minimal sagging of the breast tissue, breast augmentation may help lift them; however, if you have significant sagging, you may be advised to combine your breast augmentation with a breast lift. This combination is particularly useful for women who have had one or more pregnancies or women who have lost a significant amount of weight, including breast volume.
Placement of breast implants is individualized for each patient based on their breast anatomy and Dr. Alexander’s extensive experience. While many women tend to think that the submuscular placement looks and feels more natural, the correct placement will vary by the patient’s body type and aesthetic wishes.
