Mini Breast Augmentation vs. Traditional Breast Augmentation

A mini breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that is very similar to standard breast enlargement. The main difference is that in the mini version, the size of the implants is smaller. It typically involves breast implants that are less than 275 cc in volume. In contrast, in a traditional breast augmentation, the size of implants is usually between 275 cc and 400 cc.

Because the breast implants used are smaller, a shorter incision can be used, resulting in less trauma to the tissues. This in turn results in a shorter and more comfortable recovery process with less post-operative swelling and bruising.

I've been a patient of Dr.Nagys for almost 10 years. He definitely doesn't rush, he takes his time to talk to you and answer any questions or concerns you have. He has seen me through some challenging times of my life and has / and continues to help me. His office is always spotless, and all the ladies are very polite and also always there to answer any questions you have. The last thing i want is somwone who rushes you in and out. Dr.Nagy sits and talks to you and talks so you understand. I have recommended many people to his office and always will. Arielle has started removing a few small tattoos i have and she's very caring and kind also. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. Nagy is the best at what he does! He has a wonderful bedside manner and was extremely awesome with all of my questions. I’m a little over one week post op and already so incredibly happy with my results. The office is impeccable and beautiful. The staff is friendly and always helpful. Big shout out to Kim, she went above and beyond - from being reassuring, caring, friendly and so so patient with insane amounts of nerves and questions that I had. She’s the best! From consult to post op, they are a phenomenal team that I would highly recommend.

Office is clean and beautiful, staff is friendly and helpful, and worked hard to get my procedure approved by insurance. Dr Nagy is so knowledgeable, kind, careful, and thoughtful. He spent so much time with me. I had a fairly large cyst removed on my ring finger and was afraid I would have an awful scar and would never be able to wear my wedding rings again. Turns out, the scar is nearly invisible and my rings are on. Would 100% go back for a medical need and would refer him to anyone. I’m so thankful I found him.

Dr. Nagy and his staff are wonderful! I highly recommend him. They are all kind , compassionate and professional. After three months of dealing with an incision that refused to close on the top of my foot, I was referred to Dr. Nagy. He was able to find the problem during surgery and fix it. Now, I am able to return to the gym and the skin has completely healed! He is amazing!

Dr. Nagy and his staff are amazing. From the first time I stepped into his beautiful office, I was extremely comfortable. Everyone is friendly and professional. Dr. Nagy and the nurses are kind and compassionate. I knew I was in good hands. Four months post surgery, and I couldn’t be happier! The experience was life changing for me. I’m so glad I trusted Dr. Nagy. No regrets!

The Benefits of a Mini Breast Augmentation

There are many benefits to having a mini breast augmentation performed:

  • A more natural look is achieved.
  • There is less trauma to the tissues of the breast and the tissues around it.
  • Smaller implants are much less likely to cause nerve damage than larger implants are.
  • Recovery time is reduced due to the smaller incisions.
  • Since implants are small, there is less stretching of skin involved.
  • The patient feels more comfortable after surgery than they would after a traditional procedure.
  • Because the alteration is subtle and natural, you won’t have to deal with endless intrusive questions about the change.

Implant Options

There are two options when it comes to implant type: silicone breast implants and saline breast implants. Both have a hard silicone shell, but silicone implants are filled with silicone gel and saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. While silicone implants are pre-filled, saline implants are filled during the procedure.

Many patients choose gummy bear breast implants. These form-stable implants are filled with a highly cohesive silicone gel, and they look and feel quite natural. Gummy bear implants are much less likely to leak in the event of a rupture and are extremely safe.

Breast implants also vary in shape, profile, and texture. The best breast implants for each patient will be discussed during their personalized consultation with Michael Nagy MD, FACS.

The Surgical Process

Generally, mini breast augmentation surgery takes about one to two hours. Surgery is done under general anesthesia, so the patient may have to stay in the hospital for a night.

Once the anesthesia has taken effect, an incision is made in the breast crease, around the areola, or in the armpit. In order to place the implant into the breast, a pocket is created behind the tissues of the breast. This pocket may be created under the muscle of the chest. After placing the implants into the pockets, the incisions will be stitched closed.

Post-Surgical Care

After your mini breast enlargement procedure is complete and you are cleared to return home, the recovery and healing process will begin. During this process, it will be vital to closely follow Dr. Nagy’s post-surgical care directions.

Wearing a supportive post-surgical bra will be necessary, as will avoiding physically taxing activities. Swelling and bruising can be addressed using ice packs. Smoking should be avoided for the entirety of the healing process (and also in the weeks leading up to surgery).

Mini Breast Augmentation Cost

The cost of a mini breast augmentation will depend on the details of the surgery. Details that impact price include the time required to perform the surgery, the characteristics of the breast implants, and the exact techniques used.
