Breast Augmentation FAQS
1) What is a breast augmentation?
A breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size or shape of your breasts, restore volume after significant weight loss or pregnancy or as a reconstructive technique that may follow breast cancer reconstruction surgery. It is one of the common cosmetic procedures in the United States.
2) Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?
You are most likely a good candidate for breast augmentation. Body size or height are normally not a qualifying factor. Dr. Feledy considers different factors when he is establishing what size breast implant and approach is best for you. You should have good overall mental and physical health before breast augmentation.
3) Is silicone or saline breast implants better?
At Belmont Plastic Surgery, we offer women a choice between silicone and saline breast implants for their breast augmentation. Silicone breast implants are pre-filled with a cohesive silicone gel. Saline breast implants are first inserted and then filled with a saline (salt water) solution during surgery. Cost and moderate differences in the aesthetic outcome will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Feledy.
4) What are some of the risks associated with breast augmentation?
All surgical procedures present a degree of risk. Getting a breast augmentation in Washington DC is considered safe. Complications are rare and may include bleeding, infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring or asymmetry.
5) During breast augmentation surgery
Typically, breast augmentation takes 1-2 hours and performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Feledy will make appropriate surgical incisions (below the breast, at the nipple, or underarm), and then insert the breast implant into the breast pocket, which is created either above or below the chest muscle. Once the implant has been centered below the nipple, the incisions will be closed with sutures and covered with an adhesive.
6) Recovering after breast augmentation surgery
When you return home after your breast augmentation, you will need to wear a special bra to aid in healing for up to two weeks. Most patients are able to return to work within a week of surgery. Strenuous activities or exercise should be avoided for up to six weeks. It is realistic to anticipate some pain during the recovery process. Dr. Feledy may prescribe pain medication to help alleviate discomfort.

What to expect in your consultation with Dr. Feledy?
Women decide to get the breast augmentation procedure for a variety of reasons. It is essential for you to have realistic expectations prior to surgery. During the consultation process, Dr. Feledy will work with you to determine what sort of breast augmentation candidate you are.
He will help to establish key questions like:
- Should I get silicone or saline implants?
- What shape of implant should I get?
- What size do I really want?
One of the most important things to consider is getting results that are natural in appearance. There is nothing wrong with going large. However, Dr. Feledy will help you evaluate different sizes and what may work best with your body type. You can discuss how time and aging will impact the breast implants and ultimately make sure you are left with a great final result.
"These days, breast augmentation is more natural looking, particularly since surgeons often place breast implants under the chest muscle. Most patients are really excited about the results.” Dr. Jules Feledy
