Breast augmentation, also called breast enlargement, is a plastic surgery procedure that enlarges the breasts with silicone or saline breast implants. Our highly trained breast augmentation specialists can also use fat grafting to enhance the breasts, either with or without implants. If breast sagging is your main concern, a breast lift may be a more suitable procedure. Many women choose a combination breast augmentation and lift to enhance breast size and shape with one surgery.
Women choose breast enlargement in Newport Beach and Temecula for a variety of personal reasons, including:
At United Plastic Surgery, breast augmentation procedures start at $8,000 and vary with your choice of implants and the specifics of the surgery. The price will be higher if you have other procedures performed simultaneously. Your surgeon will give you a personalized quote at your consultation. We offer financing options for interested patients.
Dr. Larson and Dr. Pham are experienced, highly trained board-certified plastic surgeons united in their dedication to superior patient care and surgical outcomes. They are committed to each patient from the initial consult to surgery to a personal phone call after surgery and beyond.
Our surgeons typically use an inframammary incision (placed along the breast crease) because it gives them direct access for implant placement, does not restrict implant choice, and conceals the resulting scar. If you prefer, your surgeon can use a periareolar incision (around the lower edge of the areola) or a transaxillary incision (in the armpit).
After the incision, the surgeon creates a space behind the breast tissue, called the pocket, to hold the breast implant. Our surgeons typically use dual-plane implant placement for the most natural-looking results. Here is a comparison of the options:
You can choose either silicone gel or saline breast implants; both types are safe, have a flexible silicone outer shell, and are FDA-approved. The best type for you depends on various factors, including personal preference.
|CONSIDERATION||SALINE IMPLANTS||SILICONE IMPLANTS|

|Incision options||All options||Inframammary or periareolar|
|Results||Firmer than silicone, may ripple||Feel soft, doughy, natural|
|Price||Less expensive than silicone||More expensive than saline|
|Leak or rupture||Immediately noticeable||Detected with imaging|
Your surgeon will walk you through the following additional choices used to select your breast implants:
Considering implant material, size, shape, and profile, your surgeon will help you select the breast implants best suited for your goals.
Instead of using implants to make the breasts fuller, our surgeons can use your body’s excess fat. Natural breast augmentation, also called fat grafting breast augmentation, at our practice in Newport Beach and Temecula requires the following three steps:
Fat grafting is best for patients who want a slight increase in breast size. Our surgeons can also use it to conceal the edge of the implants in thin patients or enhance specific areas of the breast, such as the upper pole or cleavage, in combination with breast implants.
Many women combine breast augmentation with other plastic surgery procedures. Popular choices include:
During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Larson or Dr. Pham will examine you, discuss the changes you’d like to make, and create a personalized surgical plan. You will have plenty of time to ask questions and have your surgeon address your concerns.
Our surgeons usually perform breast augmentation as outpatient surgery at one of our private surgery centers. You are put under general anesthesia, and the surgeon applies a local anesthetic to control pain after the surgery.
After making the incisions, the surgeon creates a pocket for each breast implant. He then inserts the implants, fills saline implants, and ensures the breasts look similar in size and shape. Once the surgeon is happy with the result, he closes the incisions with dissolvable sutures, covers them with medical tape, and wraps the breasts with a supportive surgical bra.
Dr. Larson or Dr. Pham will give you specific post-op instructions to follow when you arrive home from surgery. Tips for an optimal recovery include:
