Your Look Deserves an Upgrade
Breast Augmentation is a popular aesthetic surgery to enhance and refine the contours of the chest. The right “boob job” offers a woman more than a simple size increase, but it can also improve the shape of the breasts and encourage greater symmetry. A full and perky bust can enhance your whole silhouette by complementing and counterbalancing your thighs, hips, tummy and buttocks.
So what are you waiting for? Your look deserves an upgrade. Explore your options at Las Vegas Body Sculpting. Read our blog and see what we’re all about.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
Did you know that breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the nation? For women living in Southern Nevada, the skill and experience of Mustafa Ahmed, MD, of Las Vegas Body Sculpting and Aesthetic, translates into beautiful breast augmentation outcomes.
Every woman has a unique set of reasons for pursuing breast augmentation. For some, the motivation is simply to have larger, fuller, more rounded breasts. Other women pursue breast augmentation to restore the shape they had before pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Age-related changes can also prompt the decision to have breast augmentation. Because there are no muscles supporting your breasts, there is little that can be done to improve the firmness, volume, and position of breast tissue. Surgery is the only effective option to reshape and enhance the breast.
Some women choose breast augmentation to reconstruct their breasts after surgery. Breast cancer treatment often requires removing a significant portion of breast tissue, and augmentation can restore fullness and symmetry.
No matter the reason, the decision to pursue breast augmentation is a personal one and a choice that each woman should make according to her own goals and desires.

An ideal candidate for breast augmentation is a healthy and empowered woman who is ready to take her aesthetic future into her own hands. Augmentation patients have a wholesome relationship with their own mind and body, so they know what they want and they have realistic expectations for what the procedure can achieve. Women who have been pregnant or who have lost massive amounts of weight may also benefit from a breast lift procedure to further sculpt and shape their busts. At your personal consultation at Las Vegas Body Sculpting, Dr. Mustafa Ahmed will qualify your candidacy for breast augmentation and develop a customized course of treatment to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Your Personal Consultation With Dr. Ahmed
Dr. Mustafa Ahmed is our Chief Surgeon and Medical Director at Las Vegas Body Sculpting.
At your personal consultation, he and his compassionate staff of medical professionals will answer all your questions regarding your interest in breast augmentation. During your appointment, the doctor will assess your candidacy for enhancement surgery. He and his assistants will conduct a brief physical examination while they review your medical history. We invite you to take the time to discuss your personal motivations and aesthetic aspirations with us. We want to hear your story!
Preparation & Procedure
Breast augmentation works by surgically placing breast implants inside your existing breast tissue. You have a number of options when it comes to the material, shape and degree of volume.
Dr. Ahmed works with you to clearly define your treatment goals. That helps him guide you toward the implants best suited for your needs. Some implants are made of silicone, while others are made of a silicone shell filled with a saline solution.
There are also different shapes available. Some implants are round, while others have more of a teardrop shape. There are pros and cons of each option, but Dr. Ahmed provides all the details you need to make an informed decision about which implants are right for you.
How Painful Is Breast Augmentation Surgery?
While some discomfort is unavoidable with any surgery, patients are often surprised at just how tolerable their postoperative pain really is. In most cases, any minor aches can be easily managed with over-the-counter medications, such as Advil or Tylenol. Of course, your personal pain threshold will play a large role as everyone’s pain tolerance is different. You should keep these factors in mind as you plan for your recovery and look forward to your results.
Recovery & Results
Following your post-surgical care instructions is critical to the recovery process. You’ll receive an antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection and pain medication to manage discomfort.
You should also take care to change your bandages and keep the area clean as instructed. Avoid strenuous activities and wear the provided support garment until your skin and underlying tissue has had a chance to heal.
If you’re a smoker, find a smoking cessation program that works for you. Smoking deprives your cells of oxygen and impedes healing. Quitting in preparation for your surgery gives you a chance to enjoy a healthier life while you enjoy your new physique.
Your increase in size will be immediately noticeable following your breast augmentation. Any initial swelling or bruising should fade as you heal. You might also notice your implants sit rather high on the chest in the early days of your recovery. But, after a couple of months, you will see the breast implant fall flatteringly into place. During this time, you will also notice the incision scars start to soften, flatten and fade. The slight surgical scars are cleverly concealed beneath the inframammary fold so you can enjoy your new look with confidence! Your stunning results should be in full bloom about six months after surgery.
Can I Have Sex After Breast Augmentation?
You can enjoy your free time however and with whomever you please! However, there are some important guidelines to keep in mind. Please keep your healing breasts supported from all angles. Avoid spirited movement, as this will be a strain on your recovering tissues. Also, do not put any undue pressure on your chest such as the kind that might come from the weight of your partner’s body. Some light fondling is ok as long as you’re not feeling too sensitive. We advise you wear a comfortable and supportive sports bra if you choose to participate in any “extracurricular activities” during your first six months after surgery.

Silicone implants are the most popular because a majority of patients report that they look and feel the most natural. Recent advancements have only contributed to silicone implants’ authentic allure. For instance, form-stable implants (also know as “gummy bear implants”) are composed of a cohesive gel that flawlessly mimics the responsiveness of natural breast tissue.
Breast implants are long-lasting, but they are not lifetime devices. You should have your implants inspected annually as part of your regular healthcare maintenance. On average, breast implants are typically refreshed and replaced every 10 to 15 years.
The increase in volume that breast implants lend the chest does take a little getting used to. But most women don’t seem to mind. After all, with a little extra effort comes a whole bevy of benefits. Some women with children have compared the sensation of new implants to how they felt in the mornings when their breasts were full of milk and their baby hadn’t yet nursed.
