What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, is a common surgical procedure to increase the size and shapeliness of the breasts. Breast augmentation in Miami is typically performed using breast implants, which are most commonly made from silicone or saline. In some cases, breast augmentation will utilize a procedure called fat transfer, in which excess fat is taken from another area of the body and injected into the breasts.

Breast Augmentation Patient Testimonial

"I went to Dr. Lampert with a concern I had from a breast augmentation done 4 years ago by another surgeon. The first thing I noticed as I walked in was his beautiful and clean office! He explained why it happened and why it was causing pain. Dr. Lampert was very thorough at explaining the surgical options for me and weighing the pros and the cons. Nothing felt rushed. The entire staff takes their time to make you feel at home.

The consultation was extremely informative (more than any other surgeon has ever taken the time to explain to me in the past.) I felt comfortable and was able to make an informed decision. I moved forward with surgery, and the entire surgical team was great! Everyone was welcoming and easily put any nerves at ease. I am SOOO happy with my breasts and feel more confident than ever. The recovery was so easy -- minimal pain and little discomfort! I am 2 weeks post-op and feeling great! Thank you Dr. Lampert, Natasha, and the entire Miami surgery team for making this such a great experience for me!" - E.H.

Why Choose Dr. Lampert for Breast Augmentation in Miami?

In stark contrast, Dr. Lampert prides himself on spending a substantial amount of time with each patient to thoroughly discuss the procedure, recovery, type of implants, and potential risks. Anyone looking to enhance their appearance through breast augmentation should only have their surgical procedure performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon.

During this meeting, Dr. Lampert will work with you to devise a personalized surgical plan based on your goals and priorities.

This will be your opportunity to ask your plastic surgeon any questions you have about the procedure.

Gummy Bear, Silicone, or Saline Implants?

Gummy Bear Implants

Gummy bear breast implants are a popular alternative to standard silicone and saline implants. Also known as form-stable implants, gummy bear implants consist of an outer silicone shell filled with thick silicone gel. These innovative implants are known for consistently holding their shape while appearing and feeling natural.

Silicone Implants

The standard silicone gel implant (non-gummy bear) has been used with great success and safety in the United States for over 20 years. This implant is softer and less dense and is generally round and more pliable. This allows it to be placed using a significantly smaller incision than that required for the gummy bear implant. These implants come with a smooth shell or a textured shell which can help prevent implant migration.

Saline Implants

Saline implants are made with a silicone shell that is filled with saline or saltwater solution. Saline implants offer a very distinctive advantage: they can be filled after the outer shell is inserted. Thus an even smaller incision can be used. Saline implants may have more movement, rippling, and may not feel as natural as silicone implants.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

When the time comes for your breast augmentation surgery, you will first be administered general anesthesia to prevent any pain during the operation. Once you’re sleeping soundly, Dr. Lampert will carefully make the necessary incisions, which may be along the creases under the breasts, along the edges of the areolas, or in the armpits. The chosen areas for the incisions will be based on the specifics of the implants and how they need to be positioned. Next, Dr. Lampert will take your customized breast implants and carefully insert them. Depending on several variables, the implants may be placed under the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscles.

Once he has finished positioning the implants, Dr. Lampert will close the incisions with sutures. He will then apply bandages to the treatment area, and he may use drainage tubes to remove excess fluid as well. In total, the procedure should take between one and two hours to complete. After you wake up, Dr. Lampert and his team will monitor you for an hour or two to ensure that there aren’t any complications. Once they determine that you’re stable, you’ll be able to head home, but you will need someone else to drive you. Before you leave, Dr. Lampert will provide you with thorough instructions for the healing process and get you scheduled for a follow-up appointment.

What is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?

Ideally, you will have arranged for someone you trust to drive you home and stay with you the first night after your breast augmentation in Miami. You will likely feel some soreness immediately after the procedure, and if necessary, Dr. Lampert will prescribe you medication for the pain. For the first few days of your recovery, you will likely have a fair amount of discomfort, and regular rest will be imperative. You should also make a point to stay hydrated, eat nutritious foods, and take occasional walks around the house. During this period, it’s normal to experience bruising, swelling, aching, and even a small amount of bleeding.

After about a week, you should be able to start easing back into your normal daily activities. Around that time, you can expect to have a check-up with Dr. Lampert to have your drainage tubes removed, wounds checked, and surgical bra fitted. You should be back to your typical routine after two weeks of recovery, but you will need to avoid upper-body exercise and lifting for four to six weeks. You will continue to have check-ups with Dr. Lampert periodically for several months after the surgery, and you may need to continue wearing a supportive bra for up to three months.
