Know Your Different Implant Options.

During your consultation, the type of filler (implant or fat transfer) will be selected based on your body size and build, and the results which you hope to attain. Today, the most common modern implants are saline or silicone gel, both widely selected by patients and approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), though other options include gummy bear implants and fat grafting (a fat transfer). 

Determining the best implant option for you is a very personal, tailored decision. You should consider the texture, the feel, the size, and the material, along with your desired final outcome. Dr. Vinyard always has samples of the silicone and saline implants for you to feel and touch as you determine which you prefer. Throughout your lifetime, your breasts and the desires for your appearance may continue to change. It’s possible that the way you desire to look in your 20’s will differ from your 40’s. If you choose to adjust, reduce, or enhance your breast augmentation, that is always possible. 

Note: Patients must be at least 18 years old to receive saline implants, and at least 22 years old to receive silicone implants. 



Size is determined by the number of CCs of saline, silicone, or fat being utilized within the implants. To determine the ideal implantation size for you, Dr. Vinyard will measure the original breast tissue which you have alongside understanding the size breasts you hope to achieve through the surgery.


Breast implants come in both a round and a teardrop shape. Both shapes are common; however, most patients tend to like the round implants better. It often looks and feels more natural, in addition to adding a fullness to the top of the breast. 



Breast implant profile refers to the projection: what is visible from the side view of the breasts. There are options from low to extra high profiles. 

Is Fat Transfer For You?

If you are choosing to have a fat transfer in addition to your breast augmentation, the process requires an additional surgery. The fat is first removed from a predetermined location with ample tissue to collect. Most often, fat is removed from the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, or flanks. The choice of two surgeries will require extra careful care after the procedures are completed to ensure that your body recovers properly and thoroughly.

Overwhelmed With Choices?

All of these options can sound overwhelming at first, but don’t worry, selecting the appropriate implant is easy once you meet with Dr. Vinyard and clearly discuss your goals and preferences. The VIPS team will guide you through every step of the process, ensuring that you’re 110% satisfied with every choice and step of the decision to undergo breast augmentation. 

Are You A Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

If you are thinking about having a breast augmentation, it is critical that you do it for yourself and nobody else. Choosing to enlarge your breasts will impact your life in a very personal, intimate, and constant way. This is not a decision you should ever feel pressured into by a spouse, significant other, or friend. 

However, if you are unhappy with the breasts you see in the mirror each morning, if you have spent years wishing your chest was larger or comparing yourself to others, if you are convinced that your self-confidence would be significantly higher if you were to have larger breasts – breast augmentation may be just right for you! 

Ideal candidates must be healthy, have fully developed breasts, and meet the 18-22 age minimum, as required by law. Additionally, if your breasts have been affected by pregnancy, nursing, aging, weight gain, or weight loss, this procedure can rejuvenate your breasts, increase their volume, and perk up the projection as seen from a side view.

Here's What To Expect...

During Your VIPS Consultation.

When it comes to breast augmentation surgeries, Dr. Vinyard invests a significant amount of time in the consultation (1 – 1.5 hours) in order to ensure your complete satisfaction with the final results. You will be able to compare your current breast size with multiple other breast sizes to find the perfect size, shape, profile, and texture for you. 

Dr. Vinyard will spend time with you, one-on-one, discussing the differences between the various types of breast implants and helping you evaluate the ideal option for your body. There are a lot of myths and false information about breast implants. Dr. Vinyard will explain the science and facts about breast implants to you.

During The Augmentation Surgery.

Breast augmentation typically requires 1 – 2 hours to perform as an outpatient surgery. Once you’re under a general anesthesia, the surgical incisions will be made… During the procedure, an incision is created and the implant is slipped into its proper position. There are multiple methods that may be chosen for implant placement: submuscular placement (under the pec muscles) and submammary/subglandular placement (over the pec muscles). 

The exact placement of the implant is based on the overall type and size of the implant, in addition to the expert opinion of Dr. Vinyard. The implant will be moved in through the incision and surgically deposited into the pocket which was created, fitting it into its final position. Afterwards, the incision is closed with either sutures or surgical adhesives.

After The Augmentation Surgery.

All patients will be taken to a private recovery space and carefully monitored by the VIPS nursing team until their release. You will be sent home wearing a compression bra to assist with minimizing the swelling, which you must wear exactly as long as Dr. Vinyard instructs. For your safety, you will need someone to drive you home and care for you in the 24-hour period following the operation.

During Your Recovery.

No matter where the incision is located, scarring is nearly always hidden within the natural creases and lines of the body. Implant placement is determined based on your body type, body size, implant size, and your lifestyle.

After your breast augmentation, you will be able to stay in the comfort of your own home, as long as there is someone to supervise and assist you. Within a few days, the bruising and swelling will begin to fade and your breasts will begin to feel normal as they gradually settle into their new shape and position. Though most patients can engage in normal activities within a few days, exercise should be avoided for at least 6 – 8 weeks following the surgery. 

you + new breasts = perfect

This treatment in most cases can be a life-changing procedure, allowing you the chance to feel more comfortable in your own skin.

Most patients are able to return to work after breast augmentation in approximately 3 – 7 days if their job is not physically demanding. You will be able to drive once you are no longer relying on pain medication to control your discomfort. You must avoid very heavy lifting for six weeks and will require help with certain activities during your recovery. There will be bruising on your chest for 1 – 2 weeks and have swelling for about three months.

FAQs about Breast Augmentation.

Your cost for breast augmentation will vary based on your choices and if you are having any other surgeries at the same time. As soon as your treatment plan is developed in your consultation, a member of our financing team will talk to you about estimated costs and financing options. To ensure your results match your goals and last a long time, it’s important to focus on quality over cost.

Once you have completed your breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Vinyard, you will leave the office with a written quote. The cost of your breast augmentation includes Dr. Vinyard’s professional fee, anesthesia fees, facility fees, breast implants, breast implant sizers, surgical brassiere, Keller Funnel (if silicone gel breast implants desired), and all pre and post-operative visits. If you are having a fat transfer, you will also have the expense of the liposuction and fat purification processes. This quote will be designed based on the plan that you and Dr. Vinyard have decided upon together.

Since a breast augmentation is considered a cosmetic surgery, all fees are due prior to the date of your procedure. Specifically, 50% of the total cost of your procedure is due one month before your procedure and the remaining 50% is due two weeks before your procedure. Therefore, you will pay in full two weeks in advance of your procedure. Our office participates with the CareCredit program. We also accept the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. However, we do not directly finance procedures for our patients.

Your plan may include breast augmentation, a lift, or both. A breast lift removes excess skin and improves the breasts, while augmentation addresses the size and shape of the breasts. During your consultation with Dr. Vinyard, he will listen to your needs and goals before explaining your treatment options. A combination augmentation and lift are often a part of a mommy makeover to rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Yes. It is very common to perform a breast augmentation along with other body procedures. This may include liposuction of problem areas such as the tummy or thighs and/or an abdominoplasty. When breast and body contouring procedures are performed during the same surgery, it is commonly called a “mommy makeover” and produces a dramatic transformation.

If you want to breastfeed after breast augmentation, be sure to tell Dr. Vinyard during your consultation. It is usually possible to breastfeed after implants, with the right surgical technique and placement. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can alter your results, so it is best to wait until after you are done having children to have breast augmentation.

You may decide that you want to replace or remove your implants at any time. If this happens, Dr. Vinyard can perform breast revision surgery. During the revision surgery, your current implants can either be replaced with new implants or removed. If you choose to have your implants taken out altogether, then you may need to have a breast lift. The larger implants will stretch out the skin, and the remaining excess skin will need to be removed for your breasts to look healthy and perky. If you have any questions or concerns after your augmentation surgery, schedule an appointment at VIPS to discuss your options.

The FDA is investigating a link between implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL). This is not breast cancer, but a cancer of the immune cells. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), implant-related ALCL is very rare and when caught early, it is easy to treat. Dr. Vinyard encourages all patients with implants to get regular screenings for breast cancer. You should contact VIPS if you notice any concerns, such as swelling or other visible changes.

The Reviews Are In!

5 star reviews
"I can't say enough about doctor Vinyard and his great staff. I've had more than a few procedures done in his office and have had surgery done as well, both went great the staff are always very caring and concerned for my comfort. I'm always called after a procedure to find out how I'm feeling, if I'm in any discomfort. Which I can't say I get that type of treatment from any other doctors office. I absolutely recommend VIPS for all your beauty needs."
"Doctor Vinyard is amazing as well as his staff. From the moment I walked into the office I felt welcomed. Everyone was so nice and friendly. They listened to my concerns, which was more about me being nervous than the actual procedure. I had my procedure/surgery done on October 10th. I was up and moving around on the 11th without pain or discomfort. I just went back for my 1 week check up today and again it felt like walking into a friends home rather than a doctors office. Made me feel like I was their only patient. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Vinyard and his staff."
"Dr. Vinyard was recommended to me by my breast surgeon and I have been nothing but impressed with every step of the process, from my consultation to surgery to follow ups, he and his staff have been nothing but kind, caring and compassionate. A breast cancer diagnosis is scary and knowing that you can trust your surgeon to give you the best possible outcome eases some of the worry. I highly recommend Dr. Vinyard to anyone!"
