A Stunning Silhouette

Breast augmentation is a popular procedure performed by plastic surgeons around the world to transform the appearance and self-confidence of women. Whether your body has experienced changes due to pregnancy, aging, or significant weight loss, Dr. Manuel Gigena offers a patient-centered, customized approach to ensure a comfortable experience and the most stunning results for patients in Scottsdale, AZ.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Many factors can contribute to a desire to enhance breast size, shape, or fullness. When the body experiences the process of aging, breastfeeding, or fluctuations in weight, the shape of the breasts may change and take on a more deflated or asymmetrical appearance. Using fat tissue or a variety of implants, breast augmentation can restore or elevate the appearance of the breasts.

Meet Your Doctor

Dr. Manuel Gigena will not only enhance the natural beauty of your unique anatomy with his personalized approach, but he will also offer the highest quality of compassionate patient care from the moment you walk through the door until your healing is complete.

Why We Use Cohesive Gel Implants

Dr. Gigena prefers to use cohesive gel implants in breast augmentation procedures because of the following advantages. 

Anatomically Shaped

Also known as gummy bear implants due to the gel’s gummy-like consistency, cohesive gel implants use a cohesive silicone gel. They are often teardrop-shaped, which allows the breast to rest in a more natural-looking position.

Form Stable

Being form stable, cohesive gel implants retain their shape through any activity performed, even in cases where the implant shell breaks. The cohesive silicone gel prevents collapse or folds in the implant shell.

Maintains Structure

Cohesive gel implant texture and anatomic shape allow for increased friction to help the implant maintain its structure and position. This reduces any risk of the implant rotating or leaking.

Authentic Aesthetic

Because cohesive gel implants look and feel very authentic, many patients find them more aesthetically pleasing. They also feel much more like natural breast tissue to the touch.

Breast Augmentation Utilizing Fat Transfer

For women who would like to increase their breast size using their own body’s tissue, fat transfer breast augmentation uses liposuction on areas of the body with excess fat deposits – such as the arms, thighs, hips, back, or abdomen – and then injects the clean and purified fat into the breasts. This option is great for patients who are in good physical health, have extra viable fat to spare, and are interested in increasing their breast size no more than one or two cups. Some wonderful benefits are:

  • Breast enhancement that looks and feels completely natural
  • Minimally invasive
  • No possibility of an allergic reaction
  • No synthetic material is involved – only tissue from the patient’s body

What Is the Recovery Process?

Patients may experience drowsiness and soreness for the first 48 hours after surgery. Dr. Gigena will thoroughly discuss your post-surgical recovery plan, making sure that you are as comfortable as possible. You may receive a surgical bra to reduce swelling and aid in the healing process. Bruising and swelling may last for up to 3-5 weeks, but most patients are able to return to work and other light daily activities within one week. Above all, Dr. Gigena makes himself available to every one of his patients, so you can contact him anytime with questions about your recovery process.
