What Is Breast Augmentation?

See your new body in 3D with Vectra

Medically known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation is a procedure that enlarges small or underdeveloped breasts with silicone gel or saline implants. Dr. Janssen or Dr. Doubek will make an incision in the skin, create a pocket for the implant under or above the chest muscle, insert the implant, and suture the incision closed. The surgery is usually done under general anesthesia and takes one to two hours.

We also perform implant removal, implant replacement, and implant repositioning. Pricing is determined by the type of implant, if the implant is ruptured, and if the original surgery was done by FVPS. Please call us at 920-233-1540 for a consultation because this pricing is too varied and patient specific to post.

RealSelf Patient Reviews of David Janssen, MD, FACS


A breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure, which is not paid for by insurance. In general, a breast augmentation costs approximately $8000. The price includes the surgeon’s fee, smooth round silicone implants, the facility fee at the Theda Care Surgery Center, and anesthesia. The pricing is subject to change, and will change if the surgery is done at another facility, if different implants are used, if there are unique circumstances surrounding the surgery, etc. Exparel®, which can be added to the surgical site to alleviate post-operative pain, costs $800.

The use of Strataderm® is highly recommended for optimal healing. Strataderm is a film-forming silicone gel-based wound dressing approved for the use on old and new scars. Depending on the length of the incision, a tube of Strataderm® costs $32-$54.

Usually there are multiple procedure discounts for cosmetic procedures: 15% off the surgeon’s fee for the 2nd cosmetic procedure, and 30% off the surgeon’s fee for the 3rd procedure. The operating room fee is discounted 50% for the 2nd+ procedure, while anesthesia is based solely on time. Although there are zero interest financing options available through Care Credit and Alphaeon Credit, payment by cash gives an additional 5% discount. There may be additional discounts, which are too varied to be mentioned here.

The non-refundable $100 cosmetic consultation fee can be applied towards the cost of the procedure.

Best Candidates

Front Comparison before & afterBreast augmentation is a very personal procedure, which should be done for yourself and not for someone else. Candidates for breast augmentation surgery:

  • Are physically healthy
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have fully developed breasts
  • Are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too small
  • Are dissatisfied with the breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
  • Are unhappy with the upper part of the breast appearing “empty”
  • Have asymmetrical breasts
  • Have one or both breasts that failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape

Breast augmentation does not correct ptosis or sagging of the breasts. A mastopexy (or breast lift) is a procedure that can correct droopy breasts. A breast lift can be done along with a breast augmentation or as a separate procedure depending on the desired results of the patient.

Types of Breast Implants

There are many different types, shapes, sizes, and brands of implants. Come in for a consultation to see and feel the implants. “Test” out the implants on yourself with our Vectra 3D imaging system. You and your surgeon will decide on the implants most appropriate for your needs.

Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. Should the implant shell leak, a saline implant will collapse and the saline will be absorbed and naturally expelled by the body. Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 18 or older.

Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels a bit more like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel may remain within the implant shell, or may escape into the breast implant pocket. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not collapse. An ultrasound or MRI screening can assess the condition of breast implants. Silicone breast implants are FDA-approved for augmentation in women age 22 and older.

The majority of our breast augmentations are performed with Mentor® silicone implants, which are made in the US. It is the only implant sold worldwide. MENTOR® MemoryGel® Breast Implants are available with a smooth surface shell, and come in a wide range of sizes and profiles to fit your body.

Breast implants by Mentor

We also offer Sientra® Opus Luxe smooth round breast implants, which are now manufactured in the US. They come in many sizes and projections to get the silhouette that you want, and have a platinum 20 year warranty.

Sientra Opus Luxe Implants

Round breast implants have a tendency to make breasts appear fuller than form-stable implants. Higher profile options can achieve even more projection. Because round implants are the same shape all over, there is less concern about them rotating out of place.

Patients, who are considering implants, should carefully weigh the risks and benefits of breast implants, and make the decision that is right for them. Download booklets from the Patient Forms page to learn more. Specifically, please read at least one of these booklets: Mentor® Breast Implants Patient Education or Sientra® Breast Implants Patient Education.

Questions? Request a Consultation.Smooth breast implants are the softest feeling. These implants can move with the breast implant pocket, which may give more natural movement. Smooth implants may have some palpable or visible rippling. Due to safety concerns, we no longer use textured breast implants. Specific Allergan textured implants are being voluntarily recalled. Only Allergan implants are being recalled because those textured implants are six times more likely to cause BIA-ALCL than implants from other manufacturers.

Anesthesia is administered for the patient’s comfort during the surgical procedure. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. The anesthesiologist will recommend the best option.

IncisionsIncisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. The surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for the desired outcome. Incision options include periareolar, inframammary, and transaxillary. Incisions vary based on the type of breast implant, degree of enlargement desired, patient anatomy and patient-surgeon preference.

Breast implantsAfter the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either under the pectoral muscle (a submuscular placement), or directly behind the breast tissue, over the pectoral muscle (a submammary/subglandular placement). The method for inserting and positioning breast implants depends on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, the patient’s body type and surgeon recommendation.

Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.

Preparing for Surgery

  • Smoking must be stopped one to two months prior to surgery.
  • All aspirin and blood thinners must be stopped 10 days prior.
  • Patients must have a baseline mammogram within the 1 year prior to surgery.

Preparing for surgery with a clear, complex-carb rich beverage will keep you strong and enhance your recovery. Drinking ClearFast PreOp prior to your medical procedure is a safe way to speed up recovery time, nourish your body, and reduce post-operative nausea and vomiting. It is available at Hometown Pharmacy on N. Sawyer Street, Oshkosh at $8 a bottle. The recommended dosage is one bottle the night before your surgery once you are in the fasting window, and a second bottle two hours before surgery. Consult with your anesthetist before taking the beverage. Afternoon surgery patients are encouraged to take this beverage.


Questions? Request a Consultation.After surgery the breasts will be wrapped in gauze dressings and a compression bandeau bra to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. The implants may be riding very high in the chest. This is due to swelling and spasms of the pectoral muscle. Wearing a compression bandeau bra helps keep the implants from riding up. As the swelling decreases, the implants will slowly move down into a more natural looking position usually within 3-6 weeks after surgery.

The support bra must be worn continually for the first week or two. It will be important to cleanse the incision sites and apply ointment as directed. Be sure to follow all instructions carefully.  While it is important to rest frequently during the first week, patients must walk 15-20 minutes four times a day to help to prevent blood clots from forming.

Breast augmentation before & after

The ability to return to work at a desk job depends on whether the implant was placed under or over the pectoral muscle, and the patient’s pain tolerance and motivation. When implants are placed over the muscle (subglandular), the patient should take off 2-3 days before returning to her desk job.  The patient can return to her desk job on the next day only if she is highly motivated; the patient will feel uncomfortable. When the implants are placed under the muscle (submuscular), a patient should not return to work for 5-7 days because the patient may still be using narcotics.  Thin women are more likely to have their implants placed under the muscle to better conceal the implants.  Lifting is absolutely forbidden for the first 7-10 days, so an early return to work is not suggested for patients with active jobs. Strenuous activity should be avoided for the first two weeks. Lifting anything heavier than 10 pounds should be avoided for the first 6 weeks.

At your personal consultation, all your questions about breast augmentation will be answered by an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Contact Fox Valley Plastic Surgery today at (920) 233-1540 to schedule a consultation.

RealSelf Q&A with David Janssen, MD, FACS

Breast Implant Replacement

Breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime. Patients should plan for an annual examination to evaluate breast health and implant integrity. Over time, breasts will change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and gravity.

Potential Risks

Front Comparison before & afterSmoking increases the risk of having a complication post breast augmentation. Smokers are asked to stop one to two months prior to surgery and one month post to insure proper healing and an optimal outcome.

Patients will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that they fully understand the procedure and any risks and potential complications. Possible breast augmentation surgery risks include:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Bleeding
  • Blood clots
  • Asymmetry
  • Infection
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation
  • Unfavorable scarring
  • Wrong or faulty position of the implant
  • Implant leakage or rupture
  • The formation of tight scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture)
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Wrinkling of the skin over the implant
  • Pain, which may persist
  • Possibility of revision

Breast Implant Safety

The FDA’s longstanding position is that implants are essentially safe as long as women understand they can have complications, including scarring, pain, swelling and implant rupture. However, the FDA has been grappling with how to manage a recently confirmed link to a rare cancer and the thousands of unconfirmed complaints of other health problems. FDA regulators said it is “impossible” for them to determine how frequently the cancer — a form of lymphoma — occurs because the U.S. does not track the total number of implants on the market. Estimates of the frequency of the disease range from 1 in 3,000 women to 1 in 30,000.

As of July 2019, the FDA requested that Allergan voluntarily recall certain breast implants and tissue expanders from the market. More information about breast implant removal can be found here.

Most confirmed cases of the disease, known as breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), have involved a particular style of implants from Allergan with a textured surface, designed to reduce scar tissue and slippage. But the FDA said it has also received reports of the disease in smooth implants, which account for most of the U.S. market, raising questions about whether the cancer is a risk with both implant types. The disease is not breast cancer, but a form of cancer that attacks the immune system and usually forms in the scar tissue surrounding implants. It grows slowly and can usually be successfully treated by surgically removing the implants.

More research and studies need to be conducted, but right now, the FDA is not recommending removal of implants unless there are adverse symptoms. Mentor implants are not being recalled because incidents with BIA-ALCL have been rare with Mentor products.

Other important considerations:

  • Breast implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants
  • Pregnancy, weight loss, and menopause may influence the appearance of augmented breasts over the course of your lifetime
  • Breast augmentation requires regular examinations of your breasts’ health and to evaluate the condition of your breast implants
Patients, who are considering implants, should carefully weigh the risks and benefits of breast implants, and make the decision that is right for them. Download booklets from the Patient Forms page to learn more. Specifically, please read at least one of these booklets: Mentor® Breast Implants Patient Education or Sientra® Breast Implants Patient Education.
