Breast Augmentation Q & A

What is a Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation is designed to provide fullness and volume to your breasts. Whether you’re dissatisfied with the size or the shape of your breasts, an augmentation gives you a rounder, natural-looking profile.

A breast augmentation doesn’t offer a solution for sagging breasts, which Dr. Diktaban addresses through an additional breast lift procedure.

What Techniques are Available?

When it comes to breast augmentation, Dr. Diktaban offers different options, depending on your goals:

  • Implants: Implants are the most popular choice when it comes to breast augmentation. Dr. Diktaban offers saline or silicone implants, which he can insert above or behind the muscle underneath your breasts. To decide which option is best for you, sit down with Dr. Diktaban to discuss the pros and cons of the different implants, which come in a dizzying array of sizes and textures.
  • Fat TransferIf you want to kill two birds with one stone, you can have fat removed from elsewhere on your body and redistributed in your breasts. Dr. Diktaban removes the fat from your body using liposuction and then injects it into your breasts.

Is There Scarring with Breast Implants?

Dr. Diktaban uses several different points of entry when performing breast augmentations, with the ultimate goal of leaving as little trace as possible of the surgery. Thanks to endoscopic techniques, Dr. Diktaban can go in through the:

  • Armpit
  • Crease below your breasts
  • Areola

Each of these points of entry leaves minimal to no visible scarring. In fact, when Dr. Diktaban works endoscopically through tiny incisions under your arms, it’s referred to as “scarless breast augmentation,” leaving barely noticeable scars under your arms and nothing on your breasts.

How Long is the Procedure?

Dr. Diktaban performs the procedure under local anesthesia, and it generally takes only a couple of hours. You’re free to go home that day once you’re medically cleared.

How Long is the Recovery After a Breast Augmentation?

When you leave Dr. Diktaban’s office, you’re given a support garment to wear while you heal. Plan on resting for a few days or up to a week as the discomfort and swelling gradually dissipate. After several weeks, you should be able to resume more strenuous activities and spend less time in the support garment.
