Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is technically known as augmentation mammoplasty. This surgical procedure is performed using breast implants to enhance the size and shape of your profile. Women choose Breast Augmentation for many varied and personal reasons. The most common reasons for Breast Augmentation include:

  • Enhanceing breast size when women feel that their breasts are too small or not in proportion with their overall body contour
  • Achieving a more proportionate breast symmetry in size and contour
  • Restoring breast volume and firmness for women after weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding
  • Improving breast shapes for women that have sagging or have lost skin elasticity (a reason that frequently involves breast lift surgery, too)

About Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Surgery planning begins with an overall evaluation to ensure you are healthy enough. The evaluation minimizes possible surgical risks. A complete history of all health disorders, medications, and allergies will be considered in pre-operative screening prior to surgery. Your plastic surgeon may wish to collaborate with your primary care provider for any additional information. Blood testing and a baseline mammogram for women over the age of 35 or those with a family history of breast cancer may be recommended prior to any breast surgery. It is important to recognize that similar to other medical devices, breast implants - saline or silicone gel - are not lifetime devices. It is possible that at some point in your life they will need to be removed or replaced, and you should talk to your plastic surgeon about this prior to surgery

Incision Sites for Breast Implant Placement

Your plastic surgeon plays a pivotal role in explaining your options for surgery.
Breast tissue, body type and implant type and size will all be considered
before you and your plastic surgeon finalize a surgical plan. This is an overview of
the most common incision choices your doctor can offer.

Inframammary Incision
An inframammary incision is placed in the fold beneath your breast. This
location can accommodate every size and shape of implant, is often
concealed, and is known for fast recovery times. An inframammary incision gives your plastic surgeon the most precise access to where your breast implant will sit after surgery.

Periareolar Incision
The periareolar incision is performed on the border of the dark skin around your nipple.
It is known to have fast recovery times, but does not accommodate every size and shape of implant.

Transaxillary Incision
A transaxillary incision is well concealed in the armpit and more removed from the breast area, so it is less noticeable. Recovery times are a bit longer and not all implant sizes and shapes can be accommodated.
