Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery choices women make today
Breast implants or mammoplasty, is a safe procedure that is done after consulting with your plastic surgeon and having an in-depth discussion on all of your concerns and goals. Our physicians will help you understand all of your options and costs associated with breast augmentation. Drs. Pan and Davila have 1,000s of happy breast implant patients that have chosen this surgery over the 12 years they have been in practice together.
What are your benefits of breast augmention?
Our patients always say they enjoy feeling more comfortable in their clothing, a more balanced look to their figure when looking in a mirror, and an enhanced confidence while in social circles.
How is breast augmentation performed?
There are several options for incision placement for breast augmentation, however an incision along the breast fold (inframammary fold) is favored for direct access to the pectoralis muscle and more precise creation of the pocket where the implant will sit. There is less risk of decreasing nipple sensation using this incision and it generally hides well under the breast.
The implants are placed over or under the pectoralis muscle depending on your particular anatomy and recreational activities. Many of our clients will also benefit from a subfascial (below the muscle fascia) placement which offers the benefits of both less visibility of the implant, lower capsular contracture, and easy recovery. The best approach will be determined between you and your surgeon.
For silicone implants, a Keller funnel is typically used by our surgeons to minimize the size of the incision.

What do I do to prepare for my breast implant surgery?
Avoid taking any aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen or Naprosyn for 10 days prior to surgery as this could increase your risk of bleeding.
Arrange for help with obligations at home that require any physical activity such as house cleaning or caring for children.
Allow your chest muscles to relax for 2 weeks prior to surgery (avoid any chest or shoulder exercises).
What should I expect post-surgery?
Your chest will be bandaged for support. As the dressings must remain dry, you will need to rely on towels/sponges for hygiene since you may not take a regular shower.
The first few days you will need to take medications for pain and to alleviate muscle spasms.
It will be necessary for you to sleep on your back to avoid trauma or undue pressure on the breasts that could cause bleeding.
The implants will initially be high on your chest and they will gradually settle in a more aesthetically pleasing position over the first few weeks (or months sometimes).
