I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Jain few months ago and I absolutely love the results.  I had been waiting so long and was very nervous about finally getting it done.  However, looking back on it now I am so happy I did.  Dr. Jain and all his staff were very professional and welcoming and made the process so comfortable for me.  When I did have a concern about how one of my incisions was healing they immediately made time for me to come in and be seen. Also I just recently went back to get lip injections and they are healing beautifully. I highly recommend Dr. Jain and his team.  I definitely look forward to seeing them again for future services

A Breast Lift or Combination Procedure Might Be Right For You

Breast augmentation is solely designed to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of your breasts. If you have issues with sagging, you may want to consider a breast lift to elevate the projection of your bust line. Many patients choose to combine breast implants with a breast lift to achieve a total breast enhancement. This combination is frequently part of the popular "mommy makeover." 

If you are self-conscious about other cosmetic imperfections, we perform an array of procedures to enhance the body. Patients often combine breast augmentation with additional cosmetic surgery such as liposuction or a tummy tuck for even more comprehensive results. Our Columbus, GA, practice can take care of all of your cosmetic enhancements in a comfortable, convenient setting.  

Before performing your procedure, we will make sure you are a good candidate for plastic surgery...

Important Requirements for Those Considering Breast Implants

Fully Developed Breasts

Adult women of any age can undergo breast augmentation. It is recommended, however, that a woman’s breasts are fully developed prior to placement of breast implants.

Realistic Expectations

Women who understand the recovery process and limitations of the procedure are usually very pleased with their results. In fact, many patients experience a boost in self-confidence following surgery.

Committed to Lifetime Care

Patients should be aware that as you age and your body changes, future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants. Ruptures can also occur due to a number of factors. You should also let your doctor know you have implants before receiving a mammogram.

Good Health

As with any plastic surgery procedure, you will need to be in good overall health to minimize the risk of complications during your surgery and recovery.

Our Columbus plastic surgeons, Dr. Jain and Dr. Prendergast, will help you choose the right breast implant...

Silicone vs. Saline Implants 

Breast implants may be filled with either saline solution (sterile salt water) or silicone gel. Both types of implants are approved for safe use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The best choice of implant is based on your body type, your desired increase in size, and other factors. Learn more about the different categories of breast implants...

​Benefits of Silicone

Silicone implants tend to have a more natural look and feel. They consist of silicone outer shells filled with a silicone gel. Silicone mimics the texture of human fat so that it rests on the body in a similar way to natural breast tissue. You don't have to worry about leakage with silicone implants and don't carry the risk of collapsing, unlike saline implants.

Saline breast implant resting on an open palm

​Benefits of Saline

Saline implants are an option for patients that want a rounder, firmer appearance to their breast enhancement. Saline implants are made up of a silicone outer shell and are filled with a saltwater solution. Unlike silicone implants that come in pre-made breast sizes, the plastic surgeon can fill saline implants after the shell is implanted, resulting in minimal scarring. You also have a bit of flexibility with the final size of your implant since it can be reduced or filled slightly after implantation.

Visualize Your Results Before Surgery

Jain Plastic Surgery, P.C. is the only practice in Columbus, GA, that uses VECTRA 3-D Aesthetic Simulation Technology. This incredible technology allows women to visualize their post-surgery breasts before ever walking in to an operating room. The realistic images VECTRA provides allow the patient and the physician to define in precise detail the size and shape of the breasts each woman desires.

VECTRA Technology

The VECTRA experience begins with a 3-D photo session during which we capture images of your pre-surgery breasts. Then, using special simulation software on your 3-D picture, Dr. Jain or Dr. Prendergast will be able to show you the potential results of your breast augmentation surgery. You will be able to preview different looks until you find the appearance you like best. This final, chosen simulation will become the basis for your surgical plan.

If you prefer a more private method to visualize potential augmentation results, we recommend trying the rice test. The rice test illustrates how to use panty hose and rice at specific measurements to visualize how your breasts might look at different sizes.

Each breast augmentation is custom and the results are uniquely tailored to suit your body. 

You Have Control Over Implant Customization

In addition to their substance, implants can be customized in various ways...

Texture

The implant shell may be smooth or textured to prevent shifting and to best imitate natural breast tissue. 

Shape 

The breast implant may have a round profile or one that is more anatomically natural, such as a teardrop shape.

Profile 

We customize the depth of your breast implant (the measurement from the base to the highest point of the implant curve) to create a low, medium, or high projection.

Diameter

The width of the implant measured across its base (the side of the implant that will be positioned over the chest wall) is customizable to make for a narrower or more full bust line.

Pre-Op Preparation

Prepare for your breast augmentation by carefully following the instructions laid out for you by the plastic surgeon. This often includes quitting cigarettes if you smoke and abstaining from anti-inflammatory medications that can act as a blood thinner. When you arrive at our surgical center, we will prep you and administer anesthesia. 

Incisions and Implantation

The plastic surgeon will make an incision under the armpit, around the areola, or in the crease underneath the breast. The location of the incision is carefully selected to reduce the chance of visible scarring based on your body proportions and the type of breast implants you choose.

Sutures and Recovery

The incision is carefully closed and sealed with sutures and bandages. Our plastic surgeons typically perform breast augmentation on an outpatient basis so you will be free to return home to recover the very same day.

What is breast augmentation recovery like?

Guidelines for Recovery

Dr. Jain will provide you with specific post-operative instructions to ensure you successfully recover from your breast augmentation. The operation carries a relatively quick recovery period and the majority of the side effects subside within a week or two. Nevertheless, it can take up to two months for your body to completely heal from your breast augmentation. Guidelines for recovery generally include...

Wear a Compression Garment

Woman wearing compression braOur surgeons will provide you with a compression garment to wear around the bust while you heal from surgery. This snug, sports bra-like bandage encompasses the entire chest and helps reduce swelling and promote good circulation. Expect to wear the garment for about six weeks after breast augmentation to support your chest as you recover. 

Manage Pain and Side Effects

Patient holding pill and glass of waterMost patients experience some degree of swelling and pain in the first week following a breast augmentation. The doctor will provide you with medication to help mitigate your discomfort in the days immediately following the operation. After a week, over-the-counter medications are typically enough to help patients with swelling and soreness.

Limit Physical Activities

Woman lying in bedWhile breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, you should get plenty of rest and limit your movements while you recover at home. Stay in bed for the first day or two following surgery, and refrain from anything but walking and light exercise for a month. Most patients can return to work within a week following breast augmentation, but take special care not to overexert yourself or lift heavy objects.
