Featured Image

Many women are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts, whether due to genetics, weight changes, or pregnancy. At Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa in Anaheim Hills, CA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Saba Motakef offers a variety of breast enhancement options, including breast augmentation, to help you achieve your desired look. While breast augmentation can effectively reverse the effects of time and gravity, it's important to understand that there is no way to stop the aging process, and you may once again notice sagging or other issues as the years go by. If you're considering breast enhancement and live in the Orange County, CA area, including Anaheim Hills, Brea, Chino, Yorba Linda, and beyond, we invite you to reach out to learn more about what you can expect.

How does breast augmentation work?

Breast augmentation involves enlarging and reshaping the breasts using implants or fat taken from elsewhere on your body. We offer a variety of breast enhancement choices at Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa, including saline, silicone, and gummy bear implants, as well as fat transfer surgery. Each type has its perks, and Dr. Motakef will help you pick the ideal one for your body and goals. Whichever method you choose, he will tailor your breast surgery to help you get the results you want with as little scarring as possible.

Should I get breast implants?

Deciding whether to get breast implants is a personal choice. If you're in good health and have realistic expectations, you might be a great candidate. Breast surgery can:

  • Help balance out your breasts
  • Restore volume lost after pregnancy or weight loss
  • Boost your confidence

Augmentation isn't the only breast enhancement option we offer at Motakef Plastic Surgery + Med Spa. If you're concerned about sagging, ask Dr. Motakef if a breast lift might be a more suitable procedure. You can also combine both techniques for breast augmentation and lift. Whatever your needs are, Dr. Motakef will help you find the breast surgery that works best for you.

How can age affect my breast augmentation results?

Younger skin tends to be more elastic, making implants look smoother and firmer. As you age, your skin might lose some elasticity, and breast tissue can become thinner, which could affect the look and feel of your implants. If you're older, you might need to consider additional procedures like a breast lift to achieve your desired look. Life events such as pregnancy and menopause can also change your breast shape and size, possibly requiring adjustments or replacements in the future. Dr. Motakef specializes in a number of breast enhancement techniques for a wide variety of concerns, so you are welcome to ask any questions you might have during your appointment at our Orange County plastic surgery office.

How long do breast implants last?

Nothing lasts forever, but breast implants can last 10 – 15 years on average. It depends on the type of implant and other individual factors. Regular check-ups with Dr. Motakef are key to keeping an eye on your implants and catching any issues early. Sometimes, you might need a replacement due to changes in your aesthetic preferences or if an implant ruptures or other complications arise. If your implants start to sag as time goes by, or if you're unhappy with them for another reason, you can talk to Dr. Motakef about breast revision surgery to keep you looking and feeling confident.
