Breast Augmentation / Mammaplasty

If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, you may want to consider augmentation surgery.

What breast enlargement can do:
  • Increase the fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve the balance of your figure

Silicone or saline implants used in the procedure can fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or restore breast volume lost after weight reduction, pregnancy, injury or mastectomy.

How it's done: Common incision locations include the breast crease, the underarm or around the areola (pigmented skin surrounding the nipple). Implants beneath the chest wall muscle or directly behind breast tissue create the volume you want. Implants may be pre-filled implants or filled during surgery. Breast augmentation surgery is generally performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with sedation; general anesthesia may be recommended.

Results: Whether using saline or silicone implants, the results are immediate. Swelling should subside in 2-4 weeks. Incision lines will continue to flatten and fade for up to 1 year.
