Breast Augmentation Surgery
Alternatively, the ‘gummy bear’ implant is a relatively new type of silicone implant, designed to look and feel like natural breasts. These implants are teardrop-shaped and gel-based, making them safer in the event of a leak or rupture and more likely to retain the shape of the breast. Gummy bear implants have both a silicone shell and silicone gel filling, which means they produce a naturally plump look while remaining soft to the touch.
In your consultation with Dr. Antún, he will examine your condition and concerns to determine the most suitable implant for your procedure. Drawing on years of experience and extensive training, he will tailor treatment according to your individual needs, choosing the implant, incision method, and surgical process that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Antún treats patients with the utmost professional care and safety; he only uses FDA-approved implants to enhance the breasts, rather than biopolymer injections. Biopolymers are foreign substances that are highly dangerous for the body. It is crucial to ensure that your breast augmentation is performed by a qualified surgeon who uses safe, FDA-approved implants that will not complicate results or cause harm to the body.
The details of the procedure will depend on various factors, including the quality and quantity of your natural tissue and your aesthetic goals. Both saline and silicone implants come in different shapes and sizes, so they can be adjusted to suit your needs, body type, and desires. Before your procedure, Dr. Antún will also determine the most appropriate incision placement, which may either be the periareolar incision (around the perimeter of the areola) or the inframammary incision (in the fold under the breast). Both methods are placed subtly within the natural creases of the breast, so both tend to heal well and leave minimal scarring.
At HD Esthetique, Dr. Antún and his team of dedicated aestheticians offer unparalleled aftercare service. From the initial consultation through to aftercare, the team is committed to ensuring a smooth and uncomplicated recovery process. Breast augmentation requires a downtime of approximately one to two weeks. Dr. Antún will ensure that you are fully aware of all aftercare requirements, including how to care for the surgical site and what to expect during recovery. Follow-up appointments will also be scheduled after your procedure to assess how your breasts are adapting to the implants and how the area is healing. In the first week following surgery, patients are seen in-person every two days and are provided with all the necessary materials and information to ensure a comfortable recovery and beautiful results.
CANDIDATES FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION
Breast augmentation is a highly suitable procedure for women seeking to increase the size or enhance the shape of their breasts. The minimum age for undergoing surgical augmentation with silicone implants is 22, and 18 for saline implants. However, it is essential that the breasts be fully developed before seeking surgical enhancement. If you have asymmetrical breasts, or breasts that are too small to complement your figure, you may make a suitable candidate for augmentation. If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your breasts, unhappy with their natural shape, or seeking to correct elongated or stretched skin, surgical augmentation may be a highly beneficial treatment to help you address these concerns and restore confidence in your body.

Why are breast augmentations so popular? Because in one straightforward procedure, women can feel their sexy and confident best. Breast augmentations are performed to improve the shape, size, and fullness of the breast. While some women wish to enhance small breasts or correct asymmetry, others may seek this surgery to restore shape to the area. The aging process, pregnancy, and breastfeeding all contribute to changes in the breasts, including the loss of elasticity and the breaking down of supportive tissue and fat. The stretching of the breast skin can prompt an aged, worn, and shapeless look, which can significantly affect your appearance and confidence. Breast augmentation is an excellent surgical procedure designed to enhance and project the breasts for a fuller and rounder shape, no matter your age. Highly practiced surgeon Dr. Antún has helped many women in Miami and beyond achieve a plumper, well-defined contour that complements their entire figure.
WHAT IS BREAST AUGMENTATION?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses FDA approved implants to enlarge and reshape the breasts. Implants are filled with silicone gel or saline solution and can be used to increase the breast size or create a more rounded, symmetrical shape. Many women develop uneven breast sizes or experience inconsistencies in tissue that result in disproportionate breasts. Others develop breasts that are too small to complement their figure. Breast augmentation serves to correct these issues and create a perkier and fuller appearance that enhances the body’s overall curves. With extensive experience in cosmetic surgery, Dr. Antún performs breast augmentation to help patients feel less self-conscious and more confident about their body.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SALINE AND SILICONE IMPLANTS
Breast augmentation is a highly customizable surgery. The procedure can be completed using saline or silicone implants, depending on the look you are hoping to achieve. Silicone implants are generally preferred for their softer, more natural feel since the gel’s texture is similar to that of the breast tissue. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution and are more suitable in some cases. Though they are quite firm and feel less like natural breast tissue, they can provide a perkier, ample, and more dramatic look.
