The breasts are a key part of the “womanly” figure, and often contribute to a woman’s feelings of femininity and sensuality. Some women are unhappy with breast size or shape due to genetic factors, changes in weight, or changes in breast appearance after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A variety of conditions can leave undesirable sagging of breast tissue, including the natural aging process. Our Utah breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular ways to achieve fuller, more youthful breasts. Dr. Kevin Rose is an experienced plastic surgeon in the Salt Lake City area who has performed countless breast enhancement procedures, and is known for his artistic eye in creating attractive breasts that look and feel natural.

Learn how Dr. Kevin Rose can deliver one of the best breast augmentation Utah has to offer using these amazing breakthroughs in breast implant technology.
Should I Get Breast
Any woman who wants to improve the size, shape, or symmetry of her breasts could be a candidate for breast augmentation.
Your initial Utah breast augmentation consultation will give you the opportunity to discuss the size and shape of your new breasts, and to answer questions about any medical conditions you have or medications you take so that surgery and recovery are as fast as possible.
During your consultation, Dr. Rose will discuss your expectations for the surgery and what aspects of your breasts are of concern, whether size, shape, areola size, asymmetry, or other cosmetic problem. You will have the opportunity to view before and after photos of other patients, and to view different breast implant sizes and shapes.
Breast Augmentation Procedure
Once you arrive at the surgery center for your breast augmentation procedure, ensure you have a family member or friend who will drive you home after your procedure is complete. Once prepped for surgery, the procedure itself proceeds in these steps:
For your own comfort, you will be under general or intravenous anesthesia.
There are three different types of incisions that can be used based on the size and type of the implants: around the areola’s edge (periareolar), in the crease under the breast (inframammary), or in the armpit (transaxillary). All incisions are carefully placed to reduce the appearance of any scars.
Implants may be placed beneath or above the pectoral muscle. Dr. Rose will make a recommendation about placement based on the size, shape, and type of implants being used as well as soft tissue characteristics. There are two types of implants: silicone and saline. There are different sizes and shapes within these two categories. Saline implants are filled after being placed, requiring smaller incisions, while silicone implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, known for its natural feel. Once the implants are inserted and positioned, your breast procedure is well on its way.
Closing the incisions
The doctor will then close your incisions, and you will be bandaged to hold your new breasts in place while they heal.
The entire surgery takes one hour. After it is complete, you will be under observation for about an hour. You will be given detailed aftercare instructions before you leave the clinic and the doctor will also schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure all is proceeding as it should.
Recovery & Aftercare
Every type of surgery has risks. Breast augmentations are very common, and Dr. Rose has performed many of these procedures over his years in practice, and he carefully monitors your progress during recovery by following the aftercare instructions to reduce the risk of a longer recovery time or developing complications.
After surgery, you will have a bra and strap. You will receive a prescription for pain medication, a muscle relaxer and antibiotics. The strap must be worn during the early stages of healing. Keep your activity to a minimum and use the next week or so to rest and recover, with minimal activity. Pain and swelling are normal for the first few weeks after surgery. You will have prescription medication to make you comfortable and free from pain. Your doctor will let you know when you can resume exercise and other daily activities. You will be fitted for a new bra at your one-month post operative appointment.
