Why do so many women want breast augmentation? The answer is simple: Full, shapely breasts can enhance a woman’s feminine appeal and raise her self-esteem. At Cara Plastic Surgery & Laser Center in Los Angeles, Dr. Kahng and Dr. Nguyen perform breast augmentation procedures with precision and skill to produce beautiful, natural-looking breasts with a firm, rounded, youthful appeal. As reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 290,000 procedures were performed in the U.S. in 2016 alone.

Types of Breast Augmentation

These implants consist of a silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution. Saline implants can be filled after they are placed in the body to allow for minor modifications in size after placement and smaller surgical incisions.

Structured saline-filled

Filled with sterile salt water, these implants contain structure inside that allows them to hold their shape better than traditional saline-filled implants. In this respect, they are similar to silicone gel-filled implants. Structured saline implants were approved by the FDA in 2015.

Silicone gel-filled

Filled with a soft, elastic silicone gel, these implants are available in a variety of shapes and textures. They are pre-filled and may require longer incisions than saline-filled implants.

Gummy bear

Cohesive silicone gel-filled implants are also known as form stable implants and gummy bear implants. They are filled with a thicker, firmer, cohesive gel made of cross-linked molecules of silicone, and they hold their shape better than other implant types. Gummy bear implants were FDA approved in 2012.

Natural fat transfer

In this minimally-invasive procedure, gentle liposuction is used to remove fat from areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, or thighs. The fat cells are purified and refined and then injected into the breasts. This treatment may be appropriate for patients who are seeking a more natural way to achieve modest breast augmentation.

Since 2006, breast augmentation has been the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in the USA

Surgical Placement

Breast Implants

In breast implant surgery, incisions are strategically placed for minimum visibility in one of four possible locations:

  • Inframammary: Underneath the breast, just above the breast crease
  • Periareolar: Along the lower edge of the areola
  • Transaxillary: Where the arm meets the chest near the armpit
  • Transumbilical: in the navel (for saline-filled implants only)

The implants are placed in pockets either underneath the pectoral muscles or underneath the breast tissue and on top of the pectoral muscles. The decision of whether to place the implants over or under the muscles depends on several factors, including:

  • Type of implant
  • Shape and size of implant
  • Amount of breast tissue the patient has
