Breast Q & A

What is breast surgery?

Dr. Nguyen offers breast surgery when you’re seeking improvements in the size, shape, contour, or symmetry. There’s no one-size-fits-all strategy when it comes to creating perfect breasts, which is why Dr. Nguyen works closely with you to best match your desires. Common breast surgery procedures include:

  • Breast augmentation to make breasts larger
  • Breast lifts to correct sagging breasts
  • Breast reductions

During breast augmentation, Dr. Nguyen surgically implants silicone or saline breast implants underneath the skin or usually underneath the muscle to make breasts appear fuller and more natural. During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Nguyen removes unwanted breast tissue – or previous implants – to decrease the size. A breast lift minimizes sagging breasts.

What does breast surgery entail?

During his procedures, Dr. Nguyen uses various scarless techniques so your breasts don’t have visible marks that indicate surgery. Examples include:

Trans-umbilical approach

For saline breast implants, Dr. Nguyen often uses a scarless trans-umbilical approach, meaning he makes one incision in your belly button to insert the implants and avoid breast scars.

Transaxillary approach

For silicone gel breast implants, Dr. Nguyen may use a transaxillary surgical approach where he makes incisions near your armpit to avoid visible scars on the breasts.

What should I expect during breast surgery?

After you decide which breast surgery is best for you, you’ll arrive at Noble Care Outpatient Surgery Center for your procedure. You’ll be placed under general anesthesia so that you remain asleep during the entire procedure.

Dr. Nguyen makes incisions in your skin to insert breast implants, remove excess breast tissue, or lift up the breasts. The amount of time your procedure takes depends on which breast surgery you choose.

When you wake up from surgery, you’re placed in a recovery area until the anesthesia wears off. During the first follow-up visit, breast care instructions will be explained to you, which involves wearing a special type of bra or compression bandage until your breasts heal and the swelling subsides.
