Breast Augmentation Is Designed To:
Increase Breast Size
Many women feel their breasts are too small for their body or just want a more prominent bustline. Breast augmentation increases the size of your breasts for a more voluptuous and satisfying silhouette.
Restore Volume Loss
Several factors can contribute to breast volume loss. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, significant weight loss, and aging may cause the breasts to appear deflated. Breast augmentation restores volume and improves shape.
It’s normal for a woman’s breasts to be slightly different sizes. However, noticeably asymmetrical breasts can cause a woman to feel self-conscious about her body and even make it difficult to get clothes to fit properly.
Breast asymmetry affects most women. Sometimes, breast augmentation is combined with other procedures, such as breast lift or breast reduction, to correct asymmetrical breasts as efficiently as possible.
We Offer Several Breast Implant Options in Miami, Florida
Our Miami breast augmentation specialists offer various materials, sizes, shapes, incision options, and placement options to customize your procedure and ensure your desired results. It all starts with your in-depth consultation.
During your consultation, Dr. Careaga or Dr. Durand will listen carefully to the concerns you have about your breasts, review your medical history, perform an examination, and explain all your breast augmentation options.
Using our Sientra Mirror simulator, you will be shown how your breasts may look after surgery according to your preferred options and our surgeon’s recommendations.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost in Miami?
The cost of breast augmentation varies depending on the type of implants and techniques used, anesthesia fees, and geographical location. Our Patient Care Coordinators will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your breast augmentation consultation.
What Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Involve?
Breast augmentation is usually performed under general anesthesia. Our surgeon will make the incision, create a breast pocket either above or below the muscle, and insert the implant. Silicone implants come prefilled, while saline implants are filled after being placed.
Your natural breast tissue will be reshaped to ensure good coverage for the implants and the projection you desire. Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand use suturing techniques that minimize scarring and encourage fading.
Breast augmentation surgery typically takes about two hours. However, when combined with a breast lift, or other cosmetic surgery, the procedures will take longer to complete.
Breast Augmentation Surgery Combinations
Breast augmentation surgery is commonly combined with additional procedures to achieve the desired shape and position of your breasts or provide optimal body contouring.
Breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift, liposuction, and tummy tuck surgery to reduce the need to undergo multiple operations.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
Adding a breast lift to your breast augmentation surgery can address issues with sagging caused by pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, gravity, weight loss, and genetics.
A breast lift removes excess skin and reshapes tissue to significantly improve the appearance of your breasts. It can also correct asymmetrical areolas and nipples that point downward by repositioning them to a higher, more youthful position on the breasts, and large areolas can be made smaller.
Breast augmentation, combined with a lift, offers bigger, shapelier, firmer, and younger-looking breasts.
Breast Augmentation and Tummy Tuck (Mommy Makeover #1)
Aging, pregnancy, significant weight loss, and other contributing factors can lead to loose, excess skin and pockets of stubborn belly fat, which can cause varying levels of distress.
Maintaining a healthy diet and consistently exercising is often not enough to reduce fat deposits in the midsection. Luckily, a tummy tuck can remove fat and excess skin from this area and tighten abdominal muscles to smooth bulges for abs that appear more toned and fit.
When a tummy tuck is performed with breast augmentation, it is referred to as a Mommy Makeover because it corrects cosmetic issues typically associated with one or more pregnancies.
Different options are available for this surgery, including mini and full tummy tuck, and our surgeons can help you determine which option can best help you achieve your goals.
Breast Augmentation and Liposuction (Mommy Makeover #2)
Breast augmentation can also be combined with liposuction if loose skin and abdominal muscles are not a major concern.
Liposuction uses powerful but precise suction to remove stubborn fat virtually anywhere on the body and is much less invasive than tummy tuck surgery.
Be sure to plan for additional downtime when combining cosmetic surgeries.
Breast Implant Material
- Silicone outer shell filled with a sterile saline solution
- More cost-effective than silicone implants
- Does not require periodic MRI screenings to detect leaks
- Best used with adequate natural breast tissue or placed under the muscle to reduce risk of rippling
- Silicone outer shell filled with cohesive silicone gel
- Replicates the look and feel of natural breast tissue
- Less likely to ripple than saline implants
- Requires regular MRI screenings to check for “silent ruptures”
- Silicone outer shell filled with highly cohesive silicone gel
- Replicates the look and feel of natural breast tissue
- Maintains its shape (form-stable)
- Also require regular MRI screenings
Our surgeons prefer using the inframammary incision as it can accommodate more implant types and allows for more extensive manipulation of breast tissues. This incision is made under the breast along the natural crease, where it is easily concealed. Silicone or saline implants may be inserted through this type of incision.
Implants are placed under the pectoralis muscle, which conceals the top edges of the implants. This type of placement is suitable for patients with little to no breast tissue because it creates a natural-looking breast slope.
Implants are placed under the breast tissue but over the pectoralis muscle. Subglandular implant placement is appropriate for women with sufficient breast tissue to cover and smooth the top of the implant.
After Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
What Can I Expect During My Breast Augmentation Recovery?
Most breast augmentation patients can return to work after two to five days of recovery. You can expect some temporary swelling and bruising that will begin to subside considerably by the second week.
When submuscular placement is performed, expect a few additional days of at-home recovery. Avoid strenuous activities, including exercise, for up to six weeks after surgery or when cleared by your surgeon.
What Results Can I Expect After Breast Augmentation?
You should be able to see the increase in breast size immediately after your procedure, but it will take a few months to appreciate your final results. After the implants settle into place you can expect larger, well-shaped, and perky breasts that last upwards of ten years.
Because Dr. Careaga places the incisions along the breast crease, your scars will be well-hidden and tend to fade nicely over time.
The Sientra Mirror Simulator Advantage
The Sientra Mirror is a state-of-the-art device that allows women to virtually try on various implant sizes, shapes, and profiles to determine the most appropriate implant based on their body frames and aesthetic desires.
By stepping in front of the Sientra Mirror, women undergoing breast augmentation can see how various implant sizes and shapes will impact their body contours. With this mirror, women can move and rotate to see how their augmented breasts will look from every angle. This simulator will also allow women to view where their nipples will be placed and examine the difference between implant materials and implant placement (above or below the muscle).

Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand take every precaution to reduce your chances of experiencing problems with your breast implants. Our Sientra® Platinum20™ implants come with a product replacement and limited warranty program, so you can rest assured that while unlikely if a rupture or capsular contracture does occur, you will be covered at no additional cost.
These warranties include the following:
- Lifetime coverage of implants in the event of a rupture. Replacement implants are completely free to the patient.

Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast Augmentation FAQ
Breast augmentation is recommended for women who have completed their breast development. Saline implants are FDA-approved for patients aged 18 and older, and silicone implants are FDA approved for patients aged 22 and over.
Breast augmentation gives some lift to the breasts, but breast lift surgery may be required to correct moderate to severe sagging. You can combine breast lift and breast augmentation for optimal results.
Dr. Careaga and Dr. Durand offer a revolutionary soft solid implant called the cohesive gel implant. Cohesive gel implants are long lasting and maintain their shape, making them ideal for many breast augmentation patients.
Careaga Plastic Surgery offers financing options for this reason. Visit this page to see how our financing partners can help you achieve your desired appearance through flexible, tailored financing options.
Breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift to address any sagging caused by pregnancy, aging, gravity, weight loss, or other factors. You can also combine breast augmentation with a tummy tuck — a combination of procedures known as a Mommy Makeover — to improve the appearance of the midsection.
Silicone breast implants are safer and hold their shape better than ever, but this can make detecting a leak or rupture more difficult. Periodic MRI screenings can find silent breast implant ruptures easily.
