Breast augmentation is one of the most popular surgeries we perform. Each year, many women who desire to enhance their breasts undergo this exciting and transformative procedure. There are several options, such as placing the implant on top of the muscle or below the muscle. The type of implant is also an important choice, as well as where the incisions will be placed. We believe all of these factors matter, and we will help you make choices that will provide you with a terrific result.
At the time of your consultation, we first want to hear your goals and how you wish to look. An examination and several measurements will be taken so that we can recommend the implant that will fit your body and help you look the way you want. We also offer you the ability to try on implants to get an idea of the size that feels right. Depending on the look you are going for, we are able to tailor a specific surgical plan and implant selection to your preferences. Read more about breast implants.
For example, when it comes to shape, some women desire a natural look, while others like a more augmented look. Some women want to be much larger, and some just want to look a little fuller in that new dress. Some women have breast asymmetry that they wish to correct at the same time. If you will trust us with your care, we will do everything we can to ensure you get an amazing outcome that you love.
If you have had breast augmentation surgery before, but you have since had difficulties such as capsular contracture, implant rupture, asymmetry, or other issues, we will be happy to offer you breast augmentation revision surgery.

Are you a candidate for Breast Augmentation?
If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, are at least 18 years of age, and in good general health you are probably a good candidate for breast augmentation.
What happens during Breast Augmentation?
For most breast augmentation surgeries, there are two main incision options:
- The inframammary incision placed under the breast crease.
- The areolar incision placed around the areolas, where the scar fades into the darker skin around the nipples.
The placement of the implant is also an important consideration. Silicone implants are sometimes placed over the muscle, which allows for a slightly shorter recovery time. Placement under the muscle provides an especially natural look and feel, even though the recovery period is extended slightly. Read more about breast implants.
After the incision is made, a pocket for the implant is created and the implant is inserted. If a saline implant is used, the saline solution is filled after the device has been inserted. Silicone implants are pre-filled. After the implant has been properly placed, the incisions are sutured closed.
During your consultation, we will advise you of our proposed surgical plan, and we will tell you everything to expect before, during, and after your surgery.
What is involved in Breast Augmentation recovery?
After breast augmentation, most patients are fitted with a surgical bra, which must be worn for a few weeks. Most patients take at least 1-2 weeks off from work. Exercise involving the upper body should be avoided for 4-6 weeks. We follow your recovery progress closely, and we strive get you back to your routine as soon as possible.
Soreness, bruising, tightness, and swelling are common after breast augmentation. Typically, you will wear a supportive post-surgical bra. We will provide you with a prescription for pain medication and a muscle relaxing medicine if you need it, and we will give you full instructions for taking care of your incisions, bathing, etc.
The scars will be small and discreet, and they will fade and become smooth within a few months.
The result of breast augmentation will be a shapelier, natural figure that fits your body and increased confidence*.
