Your bust is an important aspect of your ability to look and feel as confident in your own skin as possible, but sometimes life can intervene. It’s fairly common to find yourself feeling dissatisfied with the shape, size, symmetry, or volume of your breasts whether as a result of a life event like childbirth or weight loss, or due to simple genetics. Whatever the case may be, Garrett Wirth, MD, MS, FACS offers his breast augmentation procedure to patients in Newport Beach and the surrounding areas, so you can absolutely love the way you look.
How much does breast augmentation cost?
The cost of breast augmentation at Wirth Plastic Surgery can vary, but generally stays in the range of $8,500 - $10,000.
How do I choose the best implant size?
Breast implants are measured in cc’s (cubic centimeters), rather than in bra cup size. Generally, you can increase your breasts one cup size with every 175 to 200 ccs. To select the breast implants that will look the most natural on your frame, it is necessary to measure the width of your natural breast, the size of your ribcage, and the amount of natural breast tissue you have. Dr. Wirth will listen closely to your goals, and design your procedure around them.
What are breast implant profiles?
Breast implants come in three profiles, which indicate the level of projection of the breast when standing: low, moderate, and high profile. Choosing the right level of projection is an important point in how happy you will be with your results. All these issues will be fully discussed with you in planning your enhancement. Dr. Wirth never rushes the process – his goal is to bring you greater confidence and happiness after your augmentation.
What are my options for breast implant placement?
There are two primary options for implant placement: submuscular and subglandular. Subglandular placement involves placing the implants beneath your natural breast tissue, above the pectoral muscle, and is often associated with shorter recovery times and more lift. For further lift, a breast augmentation with lift might be desired.
Submuscular incisions involve placing the implant beneath the pectoral muscle. This reduces the risk of capsular contracture and can appear more natural, as the muscle tissue conceals the shape of the implant. The disruption of the muscle tissue leads to a slightly longer recovery time but is often appropriate for women with limited natural breast tissue.
