Breast augmentation is an increasingly popular option chosen by women who desire to enhance their breasts to look better in clothing, bathing suits or just to feel better about themselves. Women may opt for this procedure in their 20s and 30s to enhance naturally small breasts, or later in life to return their breasts to the pre-pregnancy state.
Breast augmentation surgery is a very safe, predictable operation when performed by a surgeon with the proper credentials in the appropriate environment. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Greenberg will discuss enhancement surgery with you in detail and make sure all of your questions are answered before proceeding. Call 407-644-3137 to get started with your free consultation.
What to Expect at Your Consultation
Dr. Greenberg will discuss your goals and your suitability for breast surgery with you. Considerations he will review include:
- The location of the implant (sub-mammary, above the chest muscle and subpectoral, below the chest muscle)
- Different incision options
- Types of implants available
Size will also be discussed and a variety of informational materials will be given to you. We encourage patients considering breast surgery to review this breast augmentation checklist as well as common questions about breast enlargement surgery to prepare for their consultation with Dr. Greenberg.
We offer both traditional saline and silicone gel-filled implants.
The IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant is now available in our office. This is a new type of implant that is filled with saline, but has an internal structure to make it behave as if filled with silicone gel. The IDEAL IMPLANT contains a series of internal shells that provide support to the edges and control fluid movement to prevent bouncing. The result is an implant that combines certain key features and benefits of both saline and silicone gel implants.
Like the saline implant, the filler is only saline, which women like for peace of mind in case of a rupture/deflation. Like the silicone gel implant, it has a natural feel, but without the risk of silent rupture and FDA-recommended MRI scans - women can simply look in the mirror and know their implants are intact. In addition, clinical trial results at 6 years show the IDEAL IMPLANT has a lower rate of capsular contracture and a lower rate of rupture than silicone gel or saline implants for primary augmentation.
Please call us today 407-644-3137 to come in for a consultation. Do your own side-by-side comparison of the IDEAL IMPLANT to the silicone gel implant.
The Breast Enhancement Procedure
Breast augmentation is performed in our accredited in-office surgical facility under general anesthesia as an outpatient. Dr. Greenberg also routinely uses a special device to insert implants called a Keller funnel to help prevent infection and hardening of the breasts.
The operation takes approximately 1-1/2 hours. You will stay in our recovery area until you are able to go home. Someone should accompany you to the office and remain with you for the first 24 hours after breast augmentation surgery.

After Your Breast Augmentation Surgery
Activity is limited for the first few days immediately following breast augmentation surgery, but routine, non-strenuous activities may be resumed during this time depending upon comfort. You should be able to resume driving and return to work after one week.
Discomfort after a breast augmentation is usually minimal and controlled with oral medication.
