Breast Augmentation

Tayani Institute is pleased to offer a variety of cosmetic services designed to help you feel confident in your appearance. One of the most common concerns that our female patients have involves her breasts — specifically, that they are naturally small. Breast augmentation enhances the size of small breasts through the placement of artificial implants. We are pleased to offer breast augmentation at Tayani Institute, serving Mission Viejo, San Clemente, Irvine, Laguna Hills, Big Bear, Arrowhead and the surrounding areas.

If you are unhappy with naturally small breasts, we invite you to schedule a complimentary computer imaging session to preview what you could look like with bigger breasts.

Breast Augmentation Candidates

You may be a candidate for breast augmentation if you have naturally small or asymmetrical breasts, or if your breasts have lost volume after pregnancy and nursing. If you are considering breast augmentation, you should be in good general health and free of any medical conditions which could compromise your surgery or recovery.

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

Prior to breast augmentation surgery, you will make several decisions in conjunction with our team’s professional recommendations. Together, you and our plastic surgeon will decide on the following:

  • Type of implant: saline or silicone
  • Incision location: around the areola, underneath the breast crease, through the armpit
  • Incision placement: above or beneath the pectoralis muscle

Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure that takes several hours. Anesthesia is used for your comfort. Our plastic surgeon begins by making the breast augmentation incisions in the pre-determined location. Then, the surgeon creates a pocket for the implants within your breast tissue, and carefully positions them in the pockets. Saline implants may be filled after they’ve been placed; silicone implants are typically pre-filled. Once your implants have been properly positioned, our plastic surgeon closes the incisions with sutures and bandages your breasts.

Recovering from Breast Augmentation

Your breasts will be sore, swollen and bruised after surgery. You will be asked to wear a support garment (similar to a sports bra) to compress the breasts and prevent excessive swelling. The garment should be worn for several weeks until our plastic surgeon advises you to remove it. You should avoid bending, straining or heavy lifting for several weeks, and will need our plastic surgeon to clear you to return to work, exercise and your normal routine.
