What is a Breast Augmentation by [liv]®?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries that uses implants in order to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. Many women who were born with small breasts, lost breast volume during pregnancy, or suffer from signs of aging seek breast augmentation surgery to improve their appearance. Using advanced surgical techniques, Dr. Ress makes sure you have minimal scarring and optimal placement. This results in natural-looking and feeling breasts that go beyond enhancing your physical appearance. It boosts your self-confidence and improves your comfort in all types of clothing styles.

Invest and Address: Did you know?

The choice for breast implants should be based on several factors including how much breast tissue you already possess, how active a lifestyle you have, and your unique fashion preferences.

[liv]® Breast Augmentation:

Silicone: Implants are filled with silicone gel. If you are looking for an implant that feels more like a natural breast then these may be the choice for you.

Saline: Implants are filled with sterile salt water. A benefit to saline implants is that if leakage occurs the saline water will be absorbed and naturally removed from the body.

Gummy Bear: Implants are filled with a silicone gel that is thicker than the traditional silicone gel implants. The benefit of these implants is that they maintain their shape even when the implant is broken.

What to Expect During a Consultation for Breast Augmentation 

There are many more choices available to women today than there were years ago, especially concerning breast augmentation surgery in Florida. Breast augmentation, or a boob job, has never been safer and more predictable. Your choices that Dr. Ress will advise you of can include the following:

  • Choice of implant type – saline versus silicone gummy bear

  • Choice of pocket – under the muscle, above the muscle or the newest one, subfascial

  • Choice of implant size and shape

  • Choice of incision location – around the areola, underneath the breast, or through the underarm

Dr. Ress will advise you during your consultation what procedure and implant best suits your needs. The cost of a breast augmentation is lower in Florida than in other places in the country, which is why many patients fly from out of state to come to Boca Raton plastic surgeon. However the adage, “one gets what one pays for,” rings true. Bargain basement prices are low for a reason. Our cost for breast augmentation surgery is priced to achieve the best value for your money: the best price for the best quality of work. This session is designed to answer all your questions, including those about the recovery process and any potential risks of the surgery. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation? 

As you start researching your choices for breast augmentation in Boca Raton, you might be wondering if it is the right choice for you. Deciding to undergo breast augmentation is a significant step. At [liv]®, we are here to help you make sure that you are making an informed decision, and we help you decide if you are a good candidate for the procedure: 

Ideal candidates typically: 

  • Are in good health and do not have any active infections or serious chronic illnesses. 
  • Have fully developed breasts that are uneven, lack volume, or do not have the desired shape. 
  • Are non-smokers since smoking can complicate the surgery and recovery.
  • Meet FDA age requirements: You must be at least 18 years old for saline implants and 22 years old for silicone implants. 
  • Have realistic expectations and are getting the surgery for personal reasons rather than pressure from other people. 

You might not be a good candidate if you: 

  • Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. 
  • Have active breast cancer or an abnormal mammogram. 
  • Are currently sick or have an untreated infection. 

Breast augmentation is a great choice if you want to enhance your self-image and confidence as long as you are doing it for the right reasons. During your consultation, we will have a thorough discussion to ensure that breast augmentation in Boca Raton is a suitable and safe option for you.

When you include these additional costs, you’re looking at an average total of around $8,000. When you come in for your consultation with Dr. Ress, we’ll walk you through a detailed cost breakdown, so you know exactly what to expect.

However, the adage, “One gets what one pays for,” rings true. Bargain basement prices are low for a reason. Our cost for breast augmentation surgery is priced to achieve the best value for your money: the best price for the best quality of work. 


The surgery itself lasts about 50 minutes, and then the recovery from breast augmentation surgery generally takes a few weeks. Initially, you will experience swelling and soreness, but this will decrease over time. Our team will give you thorough directions on how to care for your breasts post-surgery, including the use of compression garments and the limitation of physical activity. 

  • In most cases, you can return to work in four days. However, this depends on how physically demanding your job is. 
  • You’re generally ready to hit the gym again in about 10 days, starting with light activities and gradually increasing intensity. 
  • Full recovery typically takes about six weeks. 


Breast augmentation in Boca Raton, like any surgical procedure, carries certain risks, which Dr. Ress will discuss with you in detail to ensure you’re fully informed before proceeding. Here are some of the potential risks associated with breast implant surgery:

  • Scarring 
  • Changes in nipple or breast sensation 
  • Implant leakage or rupture 
  • Capsular contracture (scar tissue that forms around the implant)

Frequently Asked Questions

Have Question? We are here to help!

What is the difference between breast augmentation and implants?

Breast augmentation refers to the surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size and shape of the breasts, primarily through the use of implants. The term “breast implants” specifically refers to the medical devices that we insert under your breast tissues or chest muscles to increase breast size. Breast augmentation uses implants to achieve desired breast contours. Breast augmentation is the procedure necessary for breast enhancement, and implants are the mechanism used. Breast augmentation and implants work in synergy to deliver the desired results. 

What are the two types of breast augmentation?

There are two main types of breast augmentation: breast implants and fat transfer augmentation. The first involves placing silicone or saline implants to achieve the desired fullness and shape. On the other hand, fat transfer augmentation involves taking fat from other parts of your body and injecting it into your breasts, offering a more natural enhancement and the dual benefit of slimming areas where excess fat is unwanted. Within those two categories, there are multiple different options based on the desired outcome. 

What age should you get a breast augmentation?

Breast implants and breast augmentation are ageless. We often see that initial augmentation ages begin in those that are between 20–30 as well as 40–50 after family planning is complete. The right age for you depends on your physical health, emotional readiness, and personal circumstances. You should schedule a consultation with a board-certified breast augmentation surgeon in Boca Raton, like Dr. Ress, to help determine the best timing and approach for your breast augmentation.
