Breast Augmentation With Dr. Jiles In Sarasota


For women in our sunny state, revealing clothing and bikinis are part of life and sometimes a necessity. When your breasts do not adequately fill out these tops, or you simply are unhappy with their appearance, it can affect self esteem and make you avoid the beautiful Florida beaches. With a variety of breast augmentation options, you can achieve natural looking and larger breasts. Additionally, breast augmentation can correct sagging and abnormalities due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, and tuberous breasts. Fortunately, Dr. Emily Jiles of Sarasota Surgical Arts offers breast augmentation to the Greater Sarasota and Tampa, FL areas. 


Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery that uses an implant or transferred fat to make the breasts larger. Often, a breast augmentation also addresses the overall shape of the breasts. Therefore, if you want to add projection to the top of the breasts or make pointy breasts rounder, Dr. Jiles can place specifically chosen breast implants to achieve these goals. 

One of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, breast augmentation can accentuate your figure and even out your body. Many women seek breast augmentation because they are naturally thin, have lost weight, or lost breast volume due to pregnancy or breastfeeding. Dr. Jiles expertly places breast implants to help you achieve your desired look. 

Moreover, Dr. Jiles can perform other procedures like liposuction and a tummy tuck to serve all of your needs. Depending on your combination of procedures, a mommy makeover can rejuvenate your breasts and body all during one in-office procedure. 

Types Of Breast Enlargements: 

Breast implants come in all shapes, sizes, and types. The three most popular types of breast augmentation include: 

  • Saline 
  • Silicone 
  • Fat transfer 

Each method of breast augmentation offers unique benefits and drawbacks that depend on your anatomy and goals. Silicone breast implants have the most versatility because they 

can provide both dramatic and natural looking results. However, many factors can make the other options suitable for your needs. During your consultation, you and Dr. Jiles can discuss the various breast implant options and the ones that will work best for your body. 

Saline Implants: 

Saline breast implants are made of a thin silicone shell. Typically, Dr. Jiles inserts them empty, which means that the incision for a saline breast augmentation is often smaller. They are then filled with sterile salt water to the desired size. These implants can achieve impressive results, but are more prone to rippling than other options. 

Saline implants may be right for you if you: 

  • Are under 22 (the FDA prohibits the cosmetic placement of silicone implants under this age) 
  • Have larger breasts already 
  • Do not care for a natural look or feel 

Silicone Implants: 

The most popular breast implant in Sarasota and beyond, modern silicone implants are made of a cohesive gel. This makes them firmer than saline implants, but usually results in a more natural look and feel. Unlike saline implants, silicone breast implants are placed filled. Women tend to prefer silicone implants because they look and feel more like real breast tissue and have more flexibility when correcting the shape of the breast. In general, they are also less prone to rippling, making them a good choice for women with smaller breasts. 

Silicone implants may be recommended for you if you: 

  • Prefer a natural look and feel 
  • Are thin with little natural breast tissue 
  • Want the newest and most modern implants 

When considering breast implants, there are many factors to consider. Dr. Jiles will examine your unique anatomy, lifestyle, and expectations to help you determine which implants will best serve your needs. 

Fat Transfer: 

Along with traditional breast implants, fat transfer to the breasts can achieve conservative results for breast augmentation. While it cannot increase breast size as much as an implant, it can provide a natural enhancement to the overall size of the breasts. For women who need only a minor size increase, or want to correct smaller issues with the breasts (like loss of tissue after a biopsy), a fat transfer may be a viable option for your needs. 


There are many considerations to make when thinking about breast augmentation. Knowing your options and choosing the surgeon you feel more confident in is important to feeling happy with your results. 

Dr. Emily Jiles will walk you through the breast augmentation procedure, answer all of your questions, and listen to your concerns. Every breast augmentation patient seeks the procedure for a different reason. It is not a straightforward surgery that is performed the same way on every patient. Working together, Dr. Jiles will create a customized plan specially catered to your medical needs and aesthetic goals. 

When considering cosmetic surgery of any type, questions are natural. After a consultation, we want you to leave feeling confident in your decision and all your questions answered. Some of the most frequently asked questions by prospective breast augmentation patients include: 

How Long Does The Procedure Take? 

The length of the surgery will depend on the type of implant you choose and the technique Dr. Jiles uses. In general, you can expect your breast augmentation in Sarasota to take between one and two hours. 

Can I Go Home Afterward? 

Yes, Dr. Jiles performs breast augmentation procedures in our state-of-the-art surgical center in Sarasota. As an outpatient surgery, you can usually have someone take you home within a few hours of your surgery. Only in rare cases will a breast augmentation surgery require an overnight stay due to health conditions or surgical complications. In ideal candidates, this is rare. 

What Is Recovery Like? 

Recovery after breast augmentation will differ between patients, incision type, and chosen implant. However, you can expect to return to work about a week after surgery and most exercise within two weeks. You may be required to abstain from lifting and strenuous activities for six weeks or so. 

Dr. Jiles may prescribe pain medications and antibiotics to keep you comfortable and prevent infection. She will also fit you into a surgical bra that you will wear during and for some length of time after. For your own comfort and to promote good results, you should not wear underwire bras or bras other than your surgical bra until Dr. Jiles gives the okay. 

Experiencing some minor pain, tightness, swelling, and bruising are normal side effects after the procedure. Dr. Jiles will provide you with the proper protocol to manage and prevent these side effects before and after surgery. For example, stopping the use of certain medications and supplements that promote bleeding (like Aspirin) for a short time before and after surgery can help minimize the bruising you see. 

Before you leave, Dr. Jiles will provide personalized recovery instructions based on your surgical plan and medical needs. 

Average Cost Of Breast Augmentation 

The cost of a breast augmentation in Sarasota fluctuates based on the implant you choose. Breast augmentation with Dr. Jiles starts at $4200. Prices may also vary based on the specifics of the surgery.

How Do I Know Which Breast Implants Are Right For Me? 

Choosing the breast implants that work for your body type and will give you the results you want, can be difficult and take hours of research. Dr. Jiles will thoroughly discuss each implant type with you and give you an idea of what each could achieve with your anatomy. 

The implant type ideal for you depends on many factors: 

  • Your body type 
  • Current breast size 
  • The results you want 
  • The look you like 
  • Your age 
  • Your motivations for breast augmentation 

When Can I See My Results? 

When you come out of surgery, you will see immediately visible results from your implants. However, breast implants of any type take time to settle, as well as the surrounding skin. This means that your final results can take a few months to become visible. 

Who Is A Candidate? 

Most healthy women above the age of 18 are usually good candidates for Sarasota breast augmentation. Ideal candidates do not smoke and manage all medical conditions well. Also, having realistic expectations will ensure your candidacy for the procedure. 

Before undergoing any elective surgical procedure, it is vital to know you are a good candidate. This is because performing a breast augmentation on a non-ideal candidate can increase risk and compromise your end result. Dr. Jiles will review your medical history and current medications to confirm a safe and low risk surgery. 

What Are The Risks Of Breast Augmentation? 

Every surgical procedure comes with inherent risk. Breast augmentation is no exception, however, when performed on a good candidate the risks of major complications are low. Dr. Jiles will take every precaution to prevent complications and unnecessary side effects. Among some of the risks associated with breast augmentation include: 

  • Infection 
  • Necrosis 
  • Capsular contracture 
  • Nerve damage 
  • Undesirable result 

As mentioned, when you choose to have your Sarasota breast augmentation performed by an expert breast surgeon like Dr. Jiles, complications are rare. In consultation with Dr. Jiles, she will explain the risks of the procedure to you and address any concerns or worries you may have. 

Can I Still Breastfeed After Getting Breast Implants? 

Breastfeeding is not usually inhibited by breast augmentation. However, there is a small risk of not being able to breastfeed after the procedure. Because of the weight fluctuations that come with pregnancy and nursing, some women choose to undergo their breast augmentation after they finish having children. 

If you plan on having children after your breast augmentation, you should discuss with Dr. Jiles how pregnancy and breastfeeding could affect your results. The weight gain and natural breast enlargement that happens due to hormonal changes can compromise your breast augmentation results. 


The technique Dr. Jiles will use to perform your breast augmentation surgery will hinge on your implant choice and incision location. Before your surgery, she will explain the entire procedure and make sure that it is catered to your body and individual goals. The first step in your breast augmentation is the consultation with Dr. Emily Jiles at Sarasota Surgical Arts. 

Consultation With Dr. Jiles 

When you come in for a consultation with Dr. Jiles, she will want to gain a good idea of what you want to achieve with your Sarasota breast augmentation. First, she will ask about your specific concerns with your breasts and the desired look. Next, she will want to know if you have a history of breast cancer or major medical illness. Finally, Dr. Jiles will physically examine you to determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation and which implant type will benefit you. 

The Procedure 

Your Sarasota breast augmentation will begin after you are placed under general anesthesia. Dr. Jiles will make a small incision in the chosen location. She will work to minimize the length of the incision and future scarring. Through this incision, she will place the implants either above or below the pectoralis muscle. After the implants are placed, she will stitch the incisions and complete the surgery. 

Breast augmentation techniques vary between patients because there are many possible incision locations and options when it comes to your breast augmentation surgery in Sarasota. When creating your customized surgical plan, you and Dr. Jiles will decide which techniques are most advantageous for you.
