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.

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.

Breast Augmentation FAQ
Should I Wait Until I am Done Having Children Before Breast Augmentation?
Deciding whether to wait until you are done having children before a breast augmentation is a personal decision. Medically, you can have an augmentation and still have children. There are two distinct times women choose to have a breast augmentation — in their early 20s, before having children, to enhance breast shape, or later if life after childbirth and breastfeeding are over. If you choose to have children after your breast augmentation, there’s a risk the breast tissue will change during pregnancy, and an additional procedure might be necessary.
Is Breast Augmentation Part of a Mommy Makeover?
Breast augmentation is often one of the procedures in a custom mommy makeover, as a mother’s breasts may be stretched, saggy, or lose volume.
Can I Breast Feed After Augmentation?
Yes, the majority of women can still breastfeed after an augmentation; however, there are risks, so it is important to talk to Dr. Rose about your plans for pregnancy. At The Rose Clinic in Salt Lake City, different breast augmentation techniques can be used depending on the patient and the type of augmentation. Most of them do not interfere with a woman’s ability to produce breastmilk but be sure to understand which technique will be used for your surgery and get the facts about how the procedure will affect your ability to breastfeed.
Will There Be Any Loss of Nipple Sensation?
Following breast augmentation surgery, nipples can temporarily lose some sensation. For the majority of patients, the loss of feeling is resolved within six to twelve months.
How Long do Breast Implants Last?
When replacing breast implants, there are a lot of opinions on when it needs to be done. Your breast implants do not expire per se, but it doesn’t mean they will last forever. The general rule for the lifespan of breast implants is in the range of ten years, but many last far longer without trouble. Your chances are relatively low, but common issues include rupturing, leaking, or over time, the natural effects of aging can cause your breasts to sag due to loss of skin elasticity.
Are Scars Noticeable?
Dr. Rose is a highly experienced surgeon and will do his best to place incisions in areas that are hidden from view, even in revealing clothing styles. The size of the implant you choose will determine the size of the needed incisions. Larger silicone implants will need a larger incision, whereas saline implants are filled after they are placed in your breast and require a smaller incision – often in the armpit fold where it will be hidden.
How Do I Choose My New Size?
Many factors can go into deciding the most attractive size breast implants are right for you. Many women that come to The Rose Clinic want to dramatically increase their size yet retain a natural look and balance. The size of the implant should be an enhancement that brings you more joy and confidence in your life. At our Salt Lake City clinic in Utah, Dr. Rose will meet with you to discuss what you hope to achieve, help you understand what type, size, and shape of implant will best meet your vision.
