What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
Unlike traditional breast augmentation, this cutting-edge technique designed by Dr. Salcedo can help you achieve stunning results with added benefits like:
- Combining two effective complementary techniques (gummy bear implants and fat grafting)
- Using the highest-quality implants
- Restoring breasts affected by aging, childbirth, weight loss, or mastectomy
- Achieving amazingly natural-looking results
- Providing better shape and extra projection
- Creating cleavage that looks natural
- Offering breast enhancement with or without implants
What Breast Implant Size is Right for me?
Within your initial consultation, Dr. Salcedo will discuss the amount of fat required for a transfer. He will also discuss your breast size goals and take into account your overall body shape for the best possible outcome. To achieve the correct volume, Dr. Salcedo will measure how much original tissue exists and the size you hope to achieve.
What Breast Implant Shape Should I Get?
A breast augmentation uses gummy bear implants in addition to fat grafting. These gel-based implants are teardrop shape and are able to retain their shape better than silicone and saline implants. Their unique shape offers a more natural outcome for the desired result. When paired with a fat transfer, patients can expect more pronounced cleavage and overall enhanced shape, size, and position.

Who is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
The choice to undergo a breast augmentation is a very personal choice that no one can sway you into making. If you are dissatisfied with the look of your breasts because they appear shapeless, you may benefit from this surgery. If you've noticed a negative impact on your breasts due to age, pregnancy, or weight loss, this procedure can give them life with increased shape and fullness. It is a welcomed solution if you lift weights or have limited natural breast tissue. Call our Corona or Beverly Hills, CA office if you have any questions about your candidacy for a breast augmentation.
What Happens During Breast Augmentation?
During your initial consult, you will curate a treatment plan based on your body frame, aesthetic goals, and Dr. Salcedo's professional advice. A breast augmentation is a specialized technique developed by Dr. Salcedo that combines the use of a premium implant (highly cohesive gummy bear, extra projection) with fat grafting to enhance the cleavage and upper pole of the breast. Implants alone are not able to fully enhance the cleavage or provide long-lasting upper pole volume in the breast; fat grafting offers a permanent, natural solution to enhancing the augmentation procedure. In addition, the fat is obtained by liposuction of two areas of the body; purification of the fat with specialized equipment to ensure it is the best quality fat; then artistic placement in the breast. One of the key features of breast surgery is the ability to enhance the breast with or without implants.
What is Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation?
Cosmetic breast surgery is performed as an outpatient surgery using general anesthesia. With fat transfer, you will need to be aware of both incision sites – where the fat was taken from and in the breasts. Following the treatment, patients will be taken into a recovery area and observed before being released. You will be sent home wearing a compression garment to assist with swelling. Within a few days, the swelling will start to dissipate, and the breasts will start to look and feel normal as they fall into their new position. The majority of patients can return to everyday activities within several days; however, physical exertion, such as exercise, should be avoided for at least a couple of months. Breast enhancement surgery results in gorgeous outcomes that look and feel natural. In most cases, this procedure can be life-changing for many patients, offering them the opportunity to feel more comfortable in their own skin.
Breast Augmentation FAQs
How much does breast augmentation cost?
Your cost for breast augmentation will vary, depending on your choices and if you are having any other surgeries. As soon as your treatment plan is made in your consultation, Dr. Salcedo can talk to you about estimated costs and financing options. To make sure you are happy with your results and they last a long time, it's better to focus on quality over costs.
Do I need a breast lift or augmentation?
Your treatment plan might include implants, a lift, or both. Breast lift surgery removes loose skin and raises the position of the breasts while augmentation enhances the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Salcedo, he will listen to your concerns and goals before explaining your best treatment options. A combination augmentation and lift are usually included in a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after breastfeeding and pregnancy.
Can I breastfeed with implants?
If you want to breastfeed after augmentation surgery, talk to Dr. Salcedo during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after augmentation surgery with the right surgical technique and placement. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can affect your results so it is best to wait until after you are done having children to have breast augmentation.
Can I have my implants removed?
You may decide that you would like to remove or replace your implants. Should this happen, Dr. Salcedo can perform breast revision surgery. In revision surgery, your current implants will be either replaced with different implants or removed. If you choose to have your implants removed, you might need to have excess skin removed because larger implants may stretch your skin. If you have any concerns or questions after your augmentation, schedule an appointment at The Plastics Doc to learn more about your options.
Do implants cause breast cancer?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is still investigating a link between implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). This isn't breast cancer, but a cancer of the immune system. According to the WHO (World Health Organization), implant-related ALCL is very rare and if caught early, it's easy to treat. Dr. Salcedo encourages all patients with implants to get regular screenings for breast cancer. You should contact The Plastics Doc if you see any concerns, like swelling.
