Breast augmentation (breast enlargement) surgery is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the U.S with the ability to enhance the quality of life, restore a confident body image and redesign the silhouette of your body. Many women consider breast enhancement surgery to combat the natural aging process, correct small or asymmetrical breasts, or enhance the breasts after pregnancy, weight loss, or disease.
Dermacare Plastic Surgery is a proud leading provider of customizable breast augmentation in Phoenix, Arizona and uses state-of-the-art breast enhancement procedures to transform thousands of women’s bodies into their cosmetic ideal and achieve the desired size, shape, and projection of their breasts.
Breast Augmentation Explained
Breast augmentation, breast enlargement, or breast implant surgery is a plastic surgery procedure used to amplify volume, increase bust size, or augment the profile and symmetry of breasts through surgical insertion of silicone or saline breast implants.
Dermacare Plastic surgery uses the most advanced breast enhancement materials and surgical techniques to create stunning results that appear natural and mimic the same bounce and feel of natural breasts. The popularity and technology of breast augmentation have dramatically changed over the years, making the procedure more aesthetically pleasing, customizable, and longer-lasting.

The breast augmentation process starts with a highly personalized consultation at Dermacare Plastic surgery, where you and Dr. Rod will agree on your breast enhancement design and necessary procedures to obtain the exact results you desire, with or without adding a cup size.

How Long Does a Breast Augmentation Procedure Take?

What Is a Breast Augmentation Like During Surgery? Is It painful?
Dermacare Plastic Surgery takes pride in creating a calm, safe, and pain-free experience for every one of our breast augmentation patients. General anesthesia is administered by our anesthesiologist quickly and effectively, so you feel no pain or discomfort during your breast augmentation. During surgery, Dr. Rod will inject a long-acting local anesthetic that should give you pain relief for 4 to 5 days. Post-procedure pain can easily be controlled with routine painkillers.
What Should I Expect in Terms of Recovery After A Breast Augmentation?
Dr. Rod will give elaborate instructions on preventative recovery measures in pre-op and post-op visits. A patient can play a huge role in the maintenance of their breast implants by thoroughly following Dr. Rod’s post-surgical instructions, which may include:
- Allow sufficient time to recover. You can return to work 5-7 days post-surgery and be up and walking 1-2 hours after
- Wear the recommended supportive breast recovery bandages
- Take prescribed antibiotics or pain medications
- Gentle restorative exercise post-surgery
- Instructions for eating, sleeping, and bathing comfortably
- Refrain from alcohol or smoking for 2 weeks
How Long Will the Results Last? Will I need to Replace My Breast Implants in the Future?
Dermacare Plastic Surgery uses only the most advanced implant materials and procedural techniques to extend the life of your breast implants. Normally, breast implants will not need to be replaced for 10 to 25 years if they are well-maintained.
Other Things to Consider Before Getting a Breast Augmentation
Implant Types for Breast Augmentation. Which is the Best for Me?
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone Breast Implants mimic the same bounce of natural breast tissue and have a viscous composition comparable to human fat. These breast implants are fitting for patients seeking breast implants that maintain a natural aesthetic/feel. They generally are priced higher than saline implants and require a larger incision.
Gummy Bear Breast Implants
Gummy Bear Breast Implants or “Cohesive Gel Silicone Implants” have an added viscosity that allows them to preserve their shape for longer periods of time and grant more natural-looking results. The gummy bear implant gel is thicker than regular silicone, and the implants are considered the most progressive and expensive implants for breast enhancement surgery.
What Are the Risks Involved When Considering Breast Implants?
- The most common risks related to breast augmentation include:
- Slow healing or scarring
- Loss of sensation to nipple or skin
- Capsular contracture
- Implant rupture
- Dimpling or wrinkling of skin over breast implant
- Retention of fluid
- Blood clots
- May need a breast revision in the future
