Breast Augmentation Hawaii

Breast augmentation surgery is a significant decision and change for many women. Breast implants boost breast tissue’s size, shape, and feel and correct various problems women face with their breasts. Finding the right cosmetic surgeon can feel overwhelming for Hawaii women seeking breast implants or any kind of breast augmentation. As the procedure continues to increase in popularity, so does the number of cosmetic surgeons offering their services. However, women need to check the experience and credentials of any cosmetic surgeon before deciding to undergo any procedure. 

At Northwest Face & Body, Dr. Allegra and his team provide some of the best breast augmentations for their patients. Dr. Allegra specializes in breast surgery and remains dedicated to producing the best results for his Hawaii patients.

Is Breast Augmentation Right For You?

Breast augmentation is one of the top five cosmetic procedures performed every year. Many options are available for breast implant patients in Hawaii, from varying types of implants to fat transfer to breast augmentation. However, most patients prefer breast implants over fat transfer to breasts. Breast augmentation creates beautiful dimensions and stunning, shapely breasts. It also corrects issues such as:
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Small breasts leading to a disproportionate figure
  • Loss of breast tissue after childbearing or breastfeeding
  • Shapes breasts after a mastectomy
Breast implants can correct many problems and benefit any woman who wishes to increase her breast size or improve her aesthetic. Hawaii breast augmentation patients don’t need to have a significant issue to get breast implants as they provide many enhancements, including:
  • Full, well-formed breasts
  • Evenly shaped-breast tissue
  • Beautiful, proportionate dimensions
  • Provides a boost in self-esteem
  • Customizable surgery to suit the patient’s needs
  • Various implant types, sizes, and surgical methods
  • Speedy procedure with a  fast recovery process
  • Performed by one of the best Hawaii breast implant surgeons
As long as a woman is healthy and has no medical conditions that might interfere with the surgery, she is a viable candidate for Hawaii breast augmentation. Dr. Allergra holds a consultation with all patients to review their medical history and find the best breast implants for them.

Risks Of Breast Augmentation

Even non-surgical procedures come with a certain amount of risk, and breast augmentation in Hawaii is no different. However, any possible complications arising from breast implants are rare and can be lowered by an expert cosmetic surgeon. Some risks of breast augmentation include:

  • Possible rupture of the implants
  • Scar tissue hardening and tightening
  • Rippling visible underneath the skin
  • Breast Implant Illness
  • Infection
  • Flawed healing
  • Affect one’s chance of breastfeeding (specific techniques avoid this risk)
  • Nerve damage around the nipples
  • Skin necrosis
  • Chance of implant replacement surgery

Hawaii Breast Augmentation Implants

There are many options for breast implants that affect the shape, structure, and movement of the breasts. The two main options are saline and silicone. Saline breast implants are commonly used for women who are worried about implant rupture. They consist of a silicone outer shell but are filled with sterile saline water. If the implant ruptures, the saline is safe for the body. However, saline implants are rounder and look less natural than the other implant options. 

Silicone implants combine a silicone outer shell with a silicone gel filling. They adhere to the breasts and move like normal breast tissue. They also look natural and can have either sleek or textured shells. A woman is less likely to notice right away if a silicone implant ruptures, as the gel will leak slowly. 

The gummy bear implant is the latest model of the silicone implant. It has a firmer texture with the shell and the silicone filling. This implant has the lowest chance of rupture and appears like normal breast tissue. It’s quickly rising in popularity among breast implant patients in Hawaii. It’s typically the most expensive option of the implant types. 

Fat transfer to breasts is the last type of breast augmentation. It’s better for patients who wish to increase their natural breast tissue but are not looking to increase many cup sizes. It’s more of a minimal enhancement but does not have the same risks of rupture or rippling that come with breast implants. 

Breast Augmentation Process

At Northwest Face & Body, Hawaii, breast implant patients will find the most meticulous and thorough care with Dr. Allegra. All patients will begin the process with a consultation and have post-operation instructions and follow-up appointments to ensure proper healing. Dr. Allegra and his team welcome every patient with care and dedication. 

During the consultation, the doctor will need a comprehensive medical history to ensure the patient is safe for the procedure. After that, he will discuss all options and find the best implant type and techniques that suit your goals. 

You will arrive at Northwest Face & Body surgical facility on the day of the procedure. The patient will be placed under anesthesia, and the cosmetic surgeon will create a small incision in the determined location and place the implants. The patient will be monitored briefly following the surgery before a family member or friend can take them home.


What Is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?

Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are all common within the first few days after the surgery. Patients will be sent home with pain medication and a compression wrap to prevent any healing complications and ease any tightness or pain. All patients should wear the compression wrap until cleared to remove it. Patients will also be given a list of instructions to promote the best healing. Typically, patients can return to work and daily life after a week of rest but should still avoid any strenuous exercise until cleared.

Do Breast Implants Interfere With Breastfeeding?

It’s uncommon for breast implants to interfere with breastfeeding, but Hawaii patients who are concerned about breastfeeding can consult with their cosmetic surgeon. The surgeon can use specific techniques to avoid interfering with the mammary glands.

How Much Does A Breast Augmentation Hawaii Cost?

Breast augmentation surgery ranges from $5,000 to $7,500. The price depends on the implant type, surgical technique, or any additional surgery the patient wants to have. The cosmetic surgeons at Northwest Face & Body will be sure to discuss pricing options and create a custom quote based on the patient’s desired goals and needs.

Will I Need To Replace My Breast Implants?

Typically, breast implants need replacement surgery after ten years. However, many women keep their breast implants for fifteen to twenty years. Implants can last for almost two decades if a patient takes care of her implants and wears the proper support, especially when exercising. Every patient is different, and an implant replacement surgery is based on the surgeon’s evaluation during your yearly visits.

How Common Is Breast Implant Illness?

Breast implant illness, or BII, occurs when a patient has an adverse reaction to the breast implants. It can cause many problematic symptoms and commonly leads to implant removal. While it’s unknown what causes BII, the illness is considered extremely rare. It’s essential to disclose all medical information to your cosmetic surgeon to avoid any adverse reactions or risks of BII.
