Breast Augmentation

Natural appearing breast enhancement is the gold standard.  Shown here is a patient 3 months after dual plane breast implants, who desired increased fullness after having kids.  She is so happy with her results.

The Basics

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at enhancing the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. This enhancement is typically achieved through the insertion of implants either behind each breast or under chest muscles to increase volume and improve symmetry. The materials used for these implants are generally saline or silicone gel; both types have been approved by health authorities such as the FDA in the United States after rigorous safety testing. Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide due to its high patient satisfaction rates regarding aesthetic outcomes.

Who is a good candidate?

Individuals may choose to undergo breast augmentation for various reasons ranging from personal desire for larger breasts that enhance body proportionality and confidence, recovery post-pregnancy changes like loss in volume or sagging, reconstruction following mastectomy (breast removal) due to cancer treatments which can significantly impact self-image and emotional well-being. Additionally, some might seek correctional surgery if there are congenital asymmetries affecting their physical appearance severely enough that it impacts daily life activities including clothing choices or social interactions where bodily aesthetics play an influential role.
