Breast Implant Surgery
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.
Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?
You are most like a good candidate for breast augmentation. Body size or height are normally not a qualifying factor, though they are a factor Dr. Feledy considers when he is establishing what size breast implant and approach is best for you. A candidate should also have good overall mental and physical health as with any cosmetic surgical procedure.
What to expect in your consultation with Dr. Feledy?
Women decide to get the breast augmentation procedure for a variety of reasons, but it is essential 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 to be?
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 also 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

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. There are moderate differences in the aesthetic outcome and cost that will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Feledy.
What are some of the risks associated with breast augmentation?
All surgical procedures present a degree of risk. Breast augmentation in Washington DC is considered safe and complications are rare. Complications may include bleeding, infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring or asymmetry.
During breast augmentation surgery
Typically, breast augmentation takes 1-2 hours and is 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.
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.
