What Does Breast Augmentation Do?

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that involves placing saline or silicone implants into your breast to enhance size, volume, and shape. The final look after breast augmentation depends on several factors, including the size, material, and shape you choose for your implants and your overall body type. The general end result is perkier, fuller breasts that appear more symmetrical and appealing. Women often report that their bras and clothing fit better after breast augmentation, and many realize a lasting boost to their self-confidence.

Who Is the Best Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is FDA-approved for healthy individuals who meet minimum age requirements. This procedure is primarily meant for women hoping to increase the overall size of their breasts. However, the procedure can also benefit patients who want volume or shape enhancements. So, women who have experienced pregnancy or substantial weight loss may opt for this surgery to replenish lost fullness.

In general, you can be a good candidate for breast augmentation if you:

  • Clearly understand the expected outcome
  • Are in good overall health
  • Can reasonably afford the cost of the procedure
  • Are over the age of 18

Different Types of Breast Augmentation

There are two common types of breast augmentation: fat transfer augmentation and breast implants. Within these two broad categories, there are multiple options based on how you want your breasts to appear and feel. Some breast implants are only FDA-approved for specified ages. Our board-certified plastic surgeon takes time to educate you on the pros and cons of each option and recommend the right opting for breast augmentation.

We provide the following options for breast implants at our Fall River practice:

Saline breast implants: Our practice offers Allergan implants for those interested in saline. These breast implants are filled with sterile saline (or saltwater). It’s a safe option since your body can absorb the saline and naturally eliminate it if the implant fails. Structured saline breast implants are reinforced with an inner structure that helps them feel more natural.


Silicone breast implants: We use Sientra® implants in our silicone breast implant procedures. Also known as "gummy bear" implants due to the texture, these breast implants are made of silicone gel. With this option, you’ll need to see our plastic surgeon regularly to ensure your implants are functioning properly.

Breast Augmentation Recovery

breast augmentation services in Fall River, MAInitial breast augmentation recovery time varies widely from one patient to the next. In general, it takes about one to two weeks to recover. While the stitches used to conceal the incisions often dissolve on their own, the incision site will be taped up for at least one week following surgery.

Over the subsequent recovery weeks, our surgeon will suggest activity restrictions, particularly on strenuous activities such as exercise. However, most women are able to return to work in one to two weeks after surgery. Our doctor will give you specific instructions for your recovery and schedule follow-up appointments.

Additionally, we’ll give you a prescription for medication to manage pain, if necessary. If we place drainage tubes, our surgeon will tell you when to return to our practice to have those removed. As you recover from your breast augmentation surgery, you may come back in with questions regarding sizing or other concerns. Typically, you’ll come back five days after surgery for your first post-operation appointment with Dr. Rex. If things are going well, we’ll schedule another follow-up in 4-5 weeks.
