Breast Augmentation Kennewick Many women wish for larger breasts to fill out clothing better or obtain their idea of the perfect proportions. There is no reliable way to increase breast size in relation to the body other than surgery. Additionally, breast implants allow women to customize every aspect of their results including size, projection, shape, and placement. Dr. Javad Sajan of Allure Esthetic Plastic Surgery provides the best breast augmentation Kennewick patients have available.

Overview: Breast Augmentation & Breast Implants

Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery in the world. Using medical implants with a silicone shell, plastic surgeons can increase breast size. Along with size, the implants may also enhance the projection and shape of the breasts. While commonly a purely cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation can also address medical issues. A few examples include:

  • Severe breast asymmetry
  • Tuberous breasts
  • Mastectomy due to breast cancer
  • Breast reconstruction
  • Gender dysphoria
  • Congenital deformities
  • Developmental issues
  • Injury or trauma

Breast implants are the most common way to augment the breasts. However, Dr. Sajan also specializes in fat transfer to the breasts. That procedure involves using liposuction to harvest fat from elsewhere on the body and inject it into the breasts. This often results in a more subtle augmentation, but will look completely natural and maintain a patient’s existing breast shape.

Types Of Breast Implants

There are two primary types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Both consist of an outer silicone shell, but contain different fillings. Within these two categories, there are some variances as well. Choosing the right implant comes down to the patient's anatomy and preference.

Saline breast implants come empty. This allows Dr. Sajan to utilize a smaller incision. Once placed inside the breasts, Dr. Sajan fills the implants with sterile saline. Saline implants can be safely overfilled which makes them a popular choice for women wanting the biggest possible implants. Another advantage is that there is absolutely no risk of silent rupture. However, saline implants do come with a higher risk of other complications such as wrinkling and rupture.

Silicone breast implants are filled with cohesive silicone gel. It resembles the natural feel of breast tissue and is less likely to rupture. Most patients prefer silicone implants because they tend to look and feel the most natural. They also have lower rates of rupture and wrinkling. However, capsular contracture happens more often with silicone implants.

Finally, the newest type of silicone implant is the gummy bear breast implant. The gummy bear implant contains a highly cohesive gel that is similar in consistency to gummy bears. This means that if a rupture does occur, the filling is likely to remain in place. Gummy bear implants are firmer and offer more breast projection. They also only come with a textured shell which helps prevent too much movement.


Breast augmentation offers patients many benefits. Some of the possible benefits include:

  • Larger, shapelier breasts
  • Improved breast symmetry
  • More youthful breasts
  • Enhanced body contours
  • Fill out clothing and bras easier
  • Feel confident in breast appearance
  • Enjoy new or increased cleavage
  • Restore breast volume after pregnancy
  • Short recovery
  • Minimal post-operative pain
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Performed by an expert Washington breast augmentation surgeon

Consultation & Preparation

Meeting with Dr. Sajan at Allure Esthetic is the first step to getting a breast augmentation. Dr. Sajan offers virtual consultations to make it easier for patients in Kennewick to seek care without making multiple drives to Seattle.

During the appointment, Dr. Sajan will ask about the patient’s goals and desired outcomes. He will also review their medical history and perform an exam of their anatomy. Based on these and other factors, Dr. Sajan will determine if the patient is a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery. If done virtually, patients will have the opportunity to size breast implants during their pre-operative appointment.

Preparing for breast augmentation surgery will involve time and care. Some tips and tasks patients may need to complete before their surgery include:

  • Obtaining any required medical clearances (not required for all patients)
  • Arrange a caregiver for the first 24 hours after surgery
  • Book lodging, transportation, childcare, etc. if necessary
  • Clean the house and go shopping before surgery
  • Take time off work
  • Fill/pick up prescriptions
  • Shower the night before or morning of surgery


The exact surgical technique will depend on the predetermined incision location and placement. Regardless of these factors, Dr. Sajan will make a small incision and make a pocket in front of or behind the muscle where the implant will sit. Then, Dr. Sajan will use a Keller funnel to ensure a sterile environment when placing the breast implant. This is called the “no-touch method.” It helps reduce the chances of complications.

Dr. Sajan will then adjust the breast implant within the pocket and ensure optimal and secure placement. After examining the results from different angles, Dr. Sajan will stitch the incisions.


Breast augmentation patients are often surprised to experience a fairly easy recovery. However, as one of the most performed and oldest plastic surgeries, plastic surgeons limit trauma to the body which keeps pain to a minimum. Still, though, it is surgery and patients will need to use caution not to put stress on their incisions.

Side effects like swelling, bruising, chest tightness, nipple numbness or hypersensitivity, and redness are expected and normal. Visible side effects should subside in roughly two weeks. Though, residual swelling may last several weeks. Results are considered final between nine months and one year after surgery.

Asked Questions

1. Do Breast Implants Cost More By Size?

No, implants are a flat cost regardless of size. Implant type and filling are what make the biggest difference in the price of breast implants. For example, silicone implants cost more than saline implants and gummy bear implants cost more than traditional silicone. Other traits of the implants factor in minimally or not at all.

2. Why Do My Implants Look So High?

If breast implants are placed under the muscle, the chest muscle will compress the implant which pushes it upward. This causes the implant to sit high for a few months. Generally, implants drop into their final position between three and six months after surgery. Textured implants will take longer to drop because they integrate with the body’s tissues. Normally, after six months, most implants will have dropped.

3. What Is The Minimum Weight For Breast Augmentation?

There is no minimum or maximum weight for breast augmentation. As a fairly low risk surgery, weight is not as important a factor as some other procedures. With that said, there are medical conditions—tied with being underweight or overweight—that may disqualify patients. Dr. Sajan evaluates a patient’s full medical history to determine candidacy.

4. What Do Nipples Look Like After Breast Implants?

Unless placed through the areola, the effects on the nipple following breast augmentation are minimal. Depending on the starting size of the nipple and areola and the implant size, it is normal for the nipple to stretch and become slightly bigger. During the healing process, some puffiness and loss of sensation are normal. Occasionally, patients may experience hypersensitivity too.

5. How Much Is Breast Augmentation In Washington State?

Breast augmentation with Dr. Sajan at Allure Esthetic starts at $5,995 for saline implants. The exact cost of breast augmentation will depend on implant choice, additional surgeries, and surgical technique. Following a consultation, patients will receive a customized quote for their breast implant surgery.
