Many women consider breast augmentation today as the technology surrounding implants is constantly evolving, offering a more natural appearance to the breasts.

Dr. Dean Johnston serves patients in Lake Mary, Orlando, and the Orange County area.
Popularly referred to as a “boob job,” breast augmentation is a common plastic surgery procedure undergone by many women involving implants to increase the breasts size, shape, and change the way they protrude from the body. Implants are provided in various sizes, shapes, and are commonly filled with a silicone gel solution.
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia. The doctor will place the breast implants in one of two locations. Either submuscular, behind the pectoral muscle, or subglandular, ahead of the pectoral muscle but behind the breast gland. The options of placement are something that you will discuss during your consultation with your performing doctor.
Advances in technique has allowed less visible scarring, despite scarring normally being hidden. Ideal candidates for breast augmentation have realistic expectations on the outcomes of surgery and are at an ideal weight.
Post-surgery, patients should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for up to six weeks. Bruising and swelling are natural side effects. However, recovery time varies for each individual and recovery options should be discussed with your doctor during your consultation.
Patients report increased self-esteem, perkier breasts, and a restoration to a more youthful contour after surgery. If your breasts are suffering from the effects of age, breast augmentation may be the right choice for you!
