What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation adds volume and curve to the breasts. If you would like to go up one or more cup sizes to enhance your proportions, breast augmentation may be right for you.
Breast implants are available in a variety of types, textures, shapes, and sizes. The two main types of breast implants are saline and silicone. There are pros and cons to each and your choice of saline or silicone impacts the weight and firmness of the breasts, along with key aspects of your surgical procedure. Other considerations include smooth versus textured implants and spherical versus oval implants.
During your consultation with Dr. Moein, he will discuss the breast augmentation procedure as well as other techniques that you may benefit from to help you meet your body goals. Sometimes a breast augmentation alone doesn't address all the concerns you may have. For example, if sagging is a concern, Dr. Moein may recommend a breast augmentation and lift or a mommy makeover. Breast augmentation can also be combined with many other body contouring procedures.

What to Expect
Before this procedure takes place, there will be a personalized consultation to discuss the best treatment plan for your body goals. During this time, Dr. Moein will go over your health history, perform a medical evaluation, discuss your options and outcomes of your breast augmentation. Your concerns will be discussed and your individual treatment plan created.
Your breast augmentation surgery will be unique to your specific needs. However, you can expect your breast augmentation procedure to include the following:
- General anesthesia will be used during the surgery.
- An incision is created in one of several areas. Options include in the armpit, around the areola, and in the fold beneath the breast.
- Once the incision has been made, a pocket is created in the breast tissue and this is where the implant will be placed. Dr. Moein and you will decide whether placing the breast implant over or under the muscle is best for you.
- The implants are inserted and positioned correctly and symmetrically.
- The incisions are closed with medical stitches.

How to Prepare for Your Breast Augmentation
Dr. Moein will give you instructions on how to prepare for your breast augmentation surgery. In general, you will be asked to refrain from taking medication such as Aspirin, Motrin, or Ibuprofen the week before the surgery. Dr. Moein will prepare a pain management plan and go over it with you before your surgery. Pain management plans are based on your past experience with pain medications, your risk factors for opioid addiction, the anticipated discomfort after surgery, and your individual pain tolerance and goals.
Depending on the procedure type, Dr. Moein may ask you to get a blood test and take or adjust certain medication. Dr. Moein requires each of his patients to quit smoking at least four weeks before their surgery. To better support you, we offer smoking cessation resources.
You will likely be advised to not intake any food or fluids after midnight the night prior to your surgery. You will also need to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery as well as help around the house for at least the first 48 hours after surgery.
Post-Breast Augmentation Instructions and Recovery
After surgery, you’ll briefly recover in our recovery room. Dr. Moein may prescribe pain medication to help keep you comfortable for the first few days after your procedure. He will also provide detailed instructions post-surgery, so you have the best chance of recovering without complications.
While you’re experiencing breast augmentation recovery, it’s best to be very gentle with the tissues in the area. Engaging in any physically taxing or stressful activities is not recommended. Bruising and swelling resulting from the breast augmentation surgery can be reduced in a number of ways, such as the use of cold compresses and surgical support garments. You’ll have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Moein to make sure your healing is underway, and advise you on when you can return to more strenuous activities.
Breast Augmentation Results
As with most cosmetic procedures, breast augmentation results vary from person to person. Many women find that breast augmentation improves their body satisfaction, and helps them feel more comfortable with their appearance.
It may be a few weeks before the swelling subsides and you start seeing results. Incision scars can take a few months to even years, to fade away.
Average Cost of Breast Augmentation
According to 2018 data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of breast augmentation is $3,824, not including anesthesia and other related costs. Talk to Dr. Moein about your financing options during your consultation to help make your procedure as affordable as possible. Dr. Moein takes special care to ensure patients know the entire cost of the procedure (including the post-operative visit) up front, and that patients do not incur any unexpected expenses.
