Dr. Hu is one of the Southland’s most acclaimed breast augmentation surgeons, recognized for the quality of his surgical work, his artistry, and his meticulous attention to detail. When choosing a breast augmentation surgeon in Palmdale, you want your procedure to produce results that are all that you have dreamed of – and that exceeds your expectations.

Breast Augmentation – A Description of the Process

Many women are unhappy with the size, shape, or appearance of their breasts, and choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery in Lancaster. The procedure involves incisions in the breast crease, through which implants are placed. Various incisions could be used, based upon the type and size of the implants. The surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, requiring several hours to complete, after which you can return home to rest and recover – and enjoy your new figure.

Saline and Silicone Implants: Which is Better?

Both saline and silicone implants are excellent choices for breast enhancement, but they have differences. Saline implants require a smaller incision, as the implant is filled with sterile saline solution after being placed in your body. Silicone implants are often chosen, as they have a more natural weight and feel. What’s right for you? The first step is a private consultation with Dr. Hu to discuss your breast augmentation in Palmdale and the changes you want to make in your figure.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation in Palmdale or in Lancaster?

You may be one of the many, many women who dream of having more beautiful, voluptuous breasts. Candidates for this procedure include:

  • Women who want larger breasts
  • Women with unevenly-sized breasts
  • Small-breasted women
  • You are 18 or older (saline)
  • You are 22 or older (silicone)
  • You are generally healthy and safe to undergo surgery
  • You are not pregnant or breastfeeding

Where are the Incisions in a Breast Augmentation?

There are several incision options for breast implants, which include:

  • Beneath the breast, in the natural crease (inframammary)
  • Around the nipple area (perioareolar)
  • In either case, the incision scar fades with time to a thin white line that is almost undetectable, and out of sight even when wearing the most revealing tops, lingerie, or swimsuits.

Under the Muscle or Over the Muscle?

Only a personal consultation will reveal which placement will produce superior results for you, but in general, under the muscle is a superior placement for women who have limited natural breast tissue. The determining factors about surgical placement include:

  • Size of the implant
  • Silicone or saline?
  • Teardrop (gummy bear) or round implant
  • Quantity of existing natural breast tissue

After Breast Augmentation – What Should I Expect?

Most of our patients tell us that the recovery was far less difficult than they expected, and some feel well enough to return to work within a week. Every patient heals at a slightly different rate, and you may require a few more days. It is advised that you plan on two weeks off work to recover.

  • No stretching

  • No exercise
  • No vigorous physical activities
  • Avoid alcohol
