While some women are completely satisfied with the size and shape of their breasts, others may want something different. Many women from Oceanside, CA come to Schoemann Plastic Surgery because they wish to alter the appearance of their breasts and gain a physique they find flattering. Dr. Schoemann is a double-board-certified plastic surgeon with over 10 years of experience performing breast augmentation procedures.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation refers to a surgical procedure that is meant to modify the size or volume of the breasts. This type of breast surgery can be an excellent option for women who feel their curves are too small, worry that their breasts are asymmetrical, or wish to reconstruct their breasts following a mastectomy.

There are multiple options available to help women from Oceanside, CA achieve beautiful, natural-looking results. For some women, Dr. Schoemann recommends the use of breast implants. For others, he advises fat grafting, wherein excess tissue is harvested from the body and used to augment the breasts. When you join us in our practice for a consultation, Dr. Schoemann will be happy to provide information about each available option and how they affect your overall beauty goals, your safety, and your comfort, not just their effect on the breasts alone.

Key Benefits of Getting a Breast Augmentation

Increased Breast Volume

One of the main reasons why women seek breast augmentation is because they wish they had larger breasts, or they worry that their natural breasts are not proportional to the rest of their frame. With breast augmentation, it is possible to add volume in a way that is substantial but also looks natural.

Balanced Breasts

Some women develop breasts that are different in size, which can lead to feelings of self-consciousness. Breast augmentation can be performed to correct asymmetry, bringing the breasts into harmony with one another.

Improved Self-Confidence

The size of your breasts may be a source of great confidence. Alternatively, it can cause you to have a low self-image. If you are part of the latter, a breast augmentation procedure can help you gain real confidence in your curves and feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Real Patient Stories

“My confidence has elevated to a higher level that I didn’t think I could ever have.”

Is a Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

The best way to determine whether you are a good fit for breast augmentation is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Schoemann. During a one-on-one consultation, Dr. Schoemann will review your medical history, perform a physical evaluation, and talk to you about your expectations for breast augmentation. Based on this information, Dr. Schoemann will verify that you are a good candidate for a safe and successful breast augmentation.

The ideal candidates are adult women who are in good physical health, have realistic expectations, and have stable and healthy body weight. Additionally, candidates for breast augmentation should have fully developed breasts prior to surgery. Also, we caution against having breast augmentation if you are pregnant or plan on getting pregnant soon, as this may reverse the effects of the surgery.

It Is Ideal For…

Breast augmentation is a great choice for women whose breast size and volume have been affected by pregnancy, age, or weight loss. Women who weight train or have limited natural breast tissue also benefit from breast augmentation, as the procedure can be used to enhance breast volume using advanced techniques aligned with each patient’s body type and structure. Additionally, the procedure can also be a good option for women who have simply never been satisfied with the size or symmetry of their breasts.

It Is Not Ideal For…

Sometimes women are interested in breast augmentation because they are dissatisfied with the shape or positioning of their breasts. Breast augmentation is not a good option for correcting breasts that only sag or droop. To address breasts that lost their perky position, Dr. Schoemann typically recommends a breast lift. However, if you want to improve both the position and the size of your breasts, you can have a breast lift combined with your breast augmentation procedure for a single, comfortable plastic surgery experience.

We only recommend breast augmentation for women who wish to change their physical appearance for their own sake. We do not recommend having plastic surgery to please someone else.

Do I Have to Be at Least 18 to Get a Breast Augmentation?

While many teenage girls are dissatisfied with the shape of their breasts, allowing the breasts to fully develop before seeking any kind of augmentation is the only way to make sure you have a safe and satisfactory plastic surgery outcome. For this reason, the FDA requires women to be at least 18 to receive saline-filled implants and at least 22 to get implants filled with silicone.

Breast Augmentation Results


How Can We Help You?

The Breast Augmentation Procedure Process

The Consultation

Dr. Schoemann will perform a full examination of your breasts, ask some questions about your medical history, and take any questions you may have about the procedure or the recovery. During this appointment, you will receive a clear plan for your breast augmentation experience.

Preparing for a Breast Augmentation

On the day of your appointment, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you to the surgery, wait for you, then drive you home. Ideally, this person will also stay with you for the first 24 hours. Also, make sure you follow any specific pre-surgery guidelines outlined by your surgeon, including cessation of certain medications that may contribute to bleeding.

How Long Does a Breast Augmentation Procedure Take?

Breast augmentation is performed on an outpatient basis. For more patients, the procedure lasts somewhere between one and three hours.

Will I Feel Any Pain During a Breast Augmentation?

For your surgery, you will be placed under general anesthesia, ensuring that you are not awake for the procedure and do not feel any pain. After the surgery, and as the anesthesia wears off, you can anticipate some soreness, but prescription pain medications will be available to ensure your comfort.

Post-Surgery – Recovering from a Breast Augmentation

When you head home after surgery, you will be wearing a post-surgical bra for support to minimize swelling. It is crucial that you do not remove this dressing. Rather, Dr. Schoemann will remove it during your first post-surgery check-up. Following the removal of this supportive bra, you will need to continue wearing a support garment or sports bra for several weeks or until Dr. Schoemann directs you otherwise. Upon your discharge, you will also receive a specific list of instructions for your recovery period. Following these instructions is important to ensure that your body heals fully, thereby encouraging more successful results from your breast augmentation procedure.

The most important part of recovering from any plastic surgery, including breast augmentation, is knowing that you are not going through the recovery alone. Dr. Schoemann and the team at Schoemann Plastic Surgery are dedicated to making the aftercare and recovery process as convenient and successful for our patients as the surgery itself. We will help you through every step of your recovery process, and you can always contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.

What Is the Cost for Breast Augmentation Procedure Near Oceanside?

As with any plastic surgery, the cost can vary from one patient to the next. Some of the factors that impact the cost include incision placement, the type of procedure, the type of implants, whether any additional procedures are being performed in the same surgery, and more. When you visit us for your initial appointment, our team can furnish a full breakdown of the costs associated with breast augmentation.

Cost Considerations

What Else Should I Consider Before Getting a Breast Augmentation?

  • Type of Breast Implants

Dr. Schoemann will be happy to talk with you about the pros and cons of saline versus silicone breast implants and help you decide on the implants that are right for you.
