Breast Augmentation

  • Post-pregnancy body changes often include stretched abdominal skin and muscle, and deflation of the breasts.
  • There are no effective non-invasive treatments, nor are there exercise regimens, to reverse these body changes; therefore surgery is the gold standard approach.

Recommended Procedures

  • A ‘Mommy Makeover’ is a popular term referring to a single operation in which both abdominoplasty (possibly with liposuction) and breast augmentation (possible with a breast lift) are combined to lift, tighten and smooth loose abdominal skin and restore breast fullness and nipple position. Usually implants are used for breast augmentation, but Dr. Rad also offers the "DIEP Flap Aug" or "Natural Mommy Makeover" which uses your own abdominal skin and fat (usually discarded during tummy tuck) for breast augmentation with tissue. This is a highly sophisticated procedure that less than 1% of plastic surgeons are capable of performing. 

Other Options

  • Abdominoplasty alone is most appropriate in the presence of loose abdominal skin and in the absence of fatty deposits.
  • Liposuction alone is most appropriate in the presence of fatty deposits and good skin elasticity, and in the absence of loose skin.
  • Breast Augmentation is effective in adding volume to the breasts for which nipple position is good.
  • Breast Lift is effective in lifting droopy breasts for which nipple position is very low.
  • Breast Augmentation + Lift is effective in adding volume and lifting low nipples. 

How It’s Done

  • Dr. Rad utilizes a gently curving scar from hip to hip.
  • The skin/fat layer is separated from the core muscle layer which is tightened with permanent sutures, and excess skin is removed.
  • Laser Scar Therapy also helps to fade scars quickly and prevent thickening.

Safety

  • For healthy women, combining procedures is safe in Dr. Rad’s hands.
  • Dr. Rad works with a board certified anesthesiologist and performs surgery only in an AAAASF accredited surgery center.

What to Expect 

  • This is an outpatient surgery taking approximately 3 to 4 hours to perform.
  • Temporary moderate discomfort is common and is easily controlled with pain medications.
  • Recovery lasts about 2 to 3 weeks.
  • Bruising and swelling is common and subsides over 4 weeks.

When done well, a "mommy makeover" can restore the body to its pre-pregnancy proportions by volumizing the breasts and contouring the abdomen.
