Are you unhappy with the appearance of your breasts? Do you wish your breasts looked like they did when you were younger, or before having children, or even while you were pregnant? Were you born with small breasts or a breast abnormality that has always concerned you? Or do you simply wish you were blessed with larger breasts that might fit your body more proportionately. These are among the great reasons to pursue breast enhancement surgery.
Breast Enlargement Surgery
Breast augmentation (often referred to as breast enlargement, boob job, breast enhancement) is relatively simple from a surgical standpoint and one that can restore or create a more youthful and natural appearance. You are likely to look AND feel better about yourself. The incisions are usually small and inconspicuous and the risks acceptable. The science of breast implants has been studied exhaustively over the last two decades and the safety of implants confirmed. Today, there are many good choices for implant materials, shapes and sizes and this is a great time to have this procedure.
I offer the full spectrum of implants; saline and silicone gel, many sizes and shapes and I have extensive experience in the techniques of implantation. These techniques include open and endoscopic breast augmentation techniques, access through the axilla (armpit), under the breast or through the areola (nipple area). My techniques include the addition of local anesthesia that make this one the least painful plastic surgery procedures.
To learn more about breast augmentation, be sure to visit BreastImplantSafety.org, a joint effort presented by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Good safety information can also be found at the FDA website and at the breast implant manufacturers sites. Look at the before and after pictures in the my photographic gallery for some examples of breast enhancements. Try the “Rice Test” at home to get an idea of your own personal implant size. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) offers an excellent 3D presentation depicting breast augmentation. All of these links can be found on the Patient’s Resource Page.
Breast augmentation is considered a cosmetic surgery. More information about the financial arrangements for cosmetic surgery can be found on the Consultation Page.
