A breast augmentation is more than just a surgical procedure; it’s an empowerment journey! Whether you’re looking to restore symmetry, enhance your self-confidence, or simply embrace a new chapter in your life, it’s essential to be well-informed and prepared. Our mission at Westside Plastic Surgery is to provide you with the insights, knowledge, and support necessary to make the best decisions possible.

Choosing the Right Surgeon – What to Look For

Choosing the right plastic surgeon is extremely important because it ensures your safety, satisfaction, and the successful outcome of your procedure.

When searching for a surgeon, consider the following factors:

  • Are they certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons?
  • Do they have a successful track record in performing breast augmentations?
  • Are they licensed in your state to perform surgical procedures?
  • Do they have before-and-after photographs?

While these factors are very important when picking a surgeon, it is equally significant to find a surgeon who makes you feel comfortable, respected, and at ease.

Choosing Your Implant Size – Is Bigger Always Better?

When selecting an implant size, it can be easy to become fixated on a specific volume. During this decision-making process, it’s important to recognize that an implant of the same size can look drastically different on each person, depending on their body structure, weight, and height.

Before your surgery, you’ll have multiple appointments with Dr. Goggin, during which you’ll be provided the opportunity to “try on” sizers. In your appointment, Dr. Goggin will walk you through the differences between saline vs. silicone, above or below the muscle, and incision location.  

Our goal at Westside Plastic Surgery is to guide you through choosing the optimal implant that is tailored uniquely to you.

Breast Implants Do Not Last Forever

While breast implants are meant to be long-lasting, they are not considered to be permanent medical devices. The lifetime of a breast implant typically varies depending on factors such as the type of implant, the manufacturer, and individual factors like lifestyle and genetics.

On average, breast implants typically last about 10 years.

Your Final Results Can Take Some Time

Your initial healing process will only last a few weeks, but it may take 3-6 months until you see your final results. After a breast augmentation, it takes a few months for your breast implants to settle into proper position as swelling goes down and scar tissue softens.

Over the course of time, your breasts will begin to feel more like your own. Dr. Goggin will monitor your progress closely to ensure that your breasts are healing and settling as expected.

At Westside Plastic Surgery, we make sure that you know exactly what to expect every step of the way.
