What Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Breast augmentation, also called breast enlargement or a boob job, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures with women in Florida and througout the country. The surgery involves increasing breast size by placing a breast implant inside the body behind the natural breast tissue.

Is Breast Augmentation Right for You?

Breast augmentation with Dr. Diaz can be tailored to each patient’s precise specifications, making it suitable for a wide variety of women. It’s important that you be in overall good health before undergoing the procedure. You should also be at a comfortable weight that’s easy for you to maintain. If you’re a smoker, you should be willing to quit at least several weeks before surgery.

Breast augmentation can achieve the following goals:

  • Enlarge naturally small breasts
  • Improve the shape of breasts
  • Restore volume after pregnancy and breastfeeding
  • Even out asymmetrical breasts

Can Breast Augmentation Be Combined With Other Procedures?

If you’re bothered by the position of your breasts, you may choose to undergo breast lift–either on its own or as a companion to your breast augmentation. Another more comprehensive option is the popular mommy makeover, which typically pairs breast enhancement with a tummy tuck or liposuction or other body contouring or rejuvenating procedures.

Your Consultation With Dr. Diaz

Your breast augmentation journey begins with a consultation with Dr. Diaz in our beautiful office near downtown Melbourne. Our attentive office staff greets you and walks you through the necessary intake paperwork. A member of our staff quickly brings you to a private consultation room, where you’ll be asked to change into a soft, knee-length cloth robe—no paper hospital gowns here!

Along with one of his friendly nurses, Dr. Diaz will meet with you for at least 30 minutes. During this time, Dr. Diaz takes extensive measurements and discusses possible incisions, implant placement, and breast implant options. Unlike many other practices, we carry a large inventory of breast implants here at our Melbourne facility, allowing you to see and feel them prior to your surgery. It’s our goal to make you feel as comfortable as possible during this important appointment.

After your discussion with the doctor, it’s time to get dressed and meet with our patient care coordinator to discuss scheduling, financing, and other details of your surgery. You may choose to book your breast augmentation during this appointment or head home to think about it.

How Do I Choose the Right Size Breast Implant?

Potentially the most important factor when planning your breast augmentation, size is so much more than a number. We recommend bringing photos of breasts you like to your consultation. Having a visual aid can help Dr. Diaz accurately estimate the size of your ideal implants. Remember that cup size is not an accurate measurement for breast implants since it isn’t standardized across bra manufacturers. When you consider the size you’d like, think about your lifestyle, your favorite activities, and the clothes you like to wear (or would like to wear).

Are Round or Teardrop (Shaped) Implants Better?

Implants are available in both round and “shaped” versions (see illustration). This choice depends on your anatomy and cosmetic goals.

  • Round implants are dome-shaped and often recommended for women who want a voluptuous result with more cleavage.
  • Shaped implants are sometimes called “teardrop” shape because they’re tapered at the top, like a teardrop. These mimic the slope of natural breasts. Shaped implants are typically good choices for women who want more subtle fullness.

Breast implants can be shaped for a natural upper breast contour or round for a fuller upper breast contour

How Do I Choose Between Silicone and Saline Implants?

All FDA-approved implants have silicone shells filled with either saline or silicone gel. Silicone implants are the more popular option thanks to their more natural look and feel, but plenty of patients prefer the saline option. Dr. Diaz helps you decide during your consultation.

How Do I Choose an Implant Profile?

Think of an implant’s profile as its projection from the body. Breast implants are available in high-, medium-, and low-profile varieties. The appropriate profile for you depends largely on your frame. High-profile implants tend to have narrower bases, making them a good option for small-framed women. Low-profile implants have wider bases and may be a good choice for women with wider proportions.

Is It Better to Have Breast Implants Placed Over or Under the Muscle?

Implants can be placed either under the chest muscle (pectoralis) or immediately behind the breast glandular tissue (over the muscle). Most commonly, implants are placed under the muscle (called submuscular placement), especially when the patient has very little existing breast tissue. This placement typically results in a more natural-looking result and offers other benefits which Dr. Diaz will go over.

Which Incision Is Best for Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Diaz most commonly uses the inframammary incision to place implants. This horizontal incision is made along the natural crease of the breast and is nearly invisible once healed. Less commonly, Dr. Diaz may recommend an incision made around your areola or in your armpit (see illustration).

Your Breast Augmentation Surgery Day

Breast augmentation is an outpatient surgery that we perform right next door at our Riverview Surgery Center. This impeccably maintained facility is staffed by our own board-certified anesthesiologists and accomplished surgical staff, ensuring your safety and comfort from start to finish. You’re completely asleep for the duration of your surgery; once you’re awake and have been observed for a short period, you’re free to head home in the care of a trusted friend or family member.

What to Expect After Breast Augmentation Surgery

We’re very proud of our thorough post-op care protocol, which includes a phone from Dr. Diaz that evening. For patients having a mommy makeover one of our clinical nurses may visit you in your home (or your hotel room if you are visiting from out of town) to ensure you’re feeling good and recovering well. We also schedule an in-office follow-up visit the day after your surgery so you can be evaluated by Dr. Diaz. In the following weeks, you’ll be in our office for further follow ups. Most of the time your body absorbs the sutures that are placed beneath the skin and do not require removal.

How Long Is Recovery From a Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Diaz’s meticulous techniques ensure that most patients have swift, comfortable recuperations. Our breast augmentation patients are typically back to work within 1 week of surgery. In the following weeks, you may safely return to more physically demanding activities and exercise as directed by Dr. Diaz.

It may take a few months for the tissues to soften and for the implants to assume a more natural shape and position. Throughout the entire process, you can rest assured knowing our team is simply a phone call away.

Is Breast Enhancement Surgery Safe?

When performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon who uses FDA-approved breast implants on a qualified patient, breast enhancement surgery is safe. Complications can be minimized after surgery by closely following your surgeon’s recovery instructions.

How Long Do Breast Augmentation Results Last?

In the long term, your beautiful new breasts have the potential to last for well over a decade.

We can’t wait to be your partners in beauty. Request your consultation online or call our office at (321) 951-2639 to speak with a friendly, knowledgeable member of our staff.

Amazing experience here! I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Diaz and MA. Wendy. Dr.Diaz is incredibly thorough, and patient. He answered all of my crazy questions. The day of surgery, I was quite nervous. And again, Dr. Diaz and his OR staff put me at ease. This was a wonderful experience for me, and I highly recommend Dr. Diaz and his wonderful staff.

The staff here is Amazing - Very attentive, and Wendy Capotosta, who was in with me is so friendly, and makes you feel at ease immediately. Dr. Diaz, is extremely thorough, attentive, while being very down to earth and honest. I definitely will be going there again for other procedures if needed. The Spa ladies are great too and so informative (Amy & Amy) I trust them to give me what is best for the desired effects I am looking for. I looked at lots of places and reviews before selecting Dr. Diaz - The office lives up to the 5 star reviews you will see. I rarely review places - but chose to do this because I have had that positive of an experience, and will continue to go there. 🙂

Dr. Diaz made me feel very confident in my decision to have replacement surgery, explaining why it should be done and the steps to be taken to correct the situation. Wendy helped guide me through from the initial consult to all of my follow up visits. The personalized service in addition to the superb (!) surgical outcome made me very glad that I chose Dr. Diaz.

Dr. Diaz preformed a tummy tuck with lipo on me in Feb and I cannot say enough about my experience as well as my results with Dr. Diaz. From the time you walk in the door you are treated like family, not just another patient and not just another number. From my consultation to my final post op appointment everything was simply amazing. Dr. Diaz was extremely attentive, patient and attended every one of my appointments. Having this surgery was a huge commitment and Dr. Diaz and his extraordinary staff made me feel extremely comfortable answering all of my questions and concerns. Dr. Diaz is a honest and true surgeon who deeply cares for his patients, he will give you his cell number to be able to reach him after hours. Not only did Dr. Diaz exceed all of my expectations so did his remarkable staff. Especially Megan, who had been a part of the team for over 10 years, and Wendy both with their knowledge and compassion.

Dr. Diaz is SIMPLY AMAZING! His work is flawless & pure art. I couldn’t be happier w/ my results & the entire process. Toni, the patient care coordinator who was extremely helpful & friendly. Pam at the front desk & all of the nurses that helped me before, during & after were always very sweet. The day of the operation since he has his own surgery center connected to his office I didn’t have to go into a hospital & deal with everyone like you normally would. This day I only saw Dr. Diaz, my anesthesiology who was so professional & the 2 nurses, this experience made me feel like I was family not just a patient to them. This is a TOP tier team! I went for a breast lift w/ implant exchange. Dr. D was very informative & took the time to explain everything. I wanted to go bigger but wasn’t sure how big so I gave Dr. Diaz full control to work his magic on me. That’s HOW MUCH I trusted him & I am thrilled w/ the results. Dr. D is truly amazing both personality & talent. Highly recommended!!!

Had an INCREDIBLE BA experience with Dr. Diaz and his amazing staff. Dr. Diaz made sure you were completely informed about the surgical procedure - how he does it, the risks and realistic expectations, what he’s putting in your body, and WHY he does it the way he does. Dr. Diaz answered all of my questions (not that I had many, he was so thorough). I felt comfortable throughout the entire process. I am THRILLED with my results! More details- Upfront and transparent about pricing and everything you’ll need for the procedure and preop/postop. Was happy to save 6% just by paying with a check (instead of credit). EVERYONE in the office is friendly, professional, and truly compassionate. They make you feel comfortable and well-cared for. You see a lot of them in the weeks following your procedure! Wendy, Pam, and the BOARD-CERTIFIED ANESTHESIOLOGIST are all especially great. (Anesthesiologist being board-certified is a big deal). Everything is done in the same place - your consultation, preop, your SURGERY, and postop appointments. It was one of the things that made me feel more comfortable with the process. The only out-of-house thing you have to do is bloodwork and a C19 test, which took a total of 10 minutes combined (and they’re included in your procedure costs).
