Breast Augmentation – Using Implants to Enlarge The Appearance of the Breast
If you want unprecedented self confidence and the ability to wear the clothes you want without having to resort to a padded bra, Breast Augmentation could be the right procedure for you. There are several variations available by the use of different types of implants and the positioning of the implants. These options allow us to create the appearance that you want.
Consider breast augmentation (also known as breast enlargement or breast enhancement) in the following cases:
– Naturally small breasts (through heredity)
– After pregnancy to restore what was lost through breast feeding and/or weight loss
– Breasts are not equal in size
To find out if it’s right for you, you should start with a consultation. Here we’ll get a clear understanding of your goals. Then we’ll educate you about your available options, likely outcomes, and risks.

While a breast augmentation does increase the size of your breasts, it does not reduce or correct sagging. To correct sagging, the procedure that is typically used is called a Breast Lift. It is possible to perform both procedures simultaneously. Here is an example of a patient who had both a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) and a Breast Augmentation.
There are two types of implants that can be used in Breast Augmentation. Saline implants are made of silicone bags filled with sterilized saline solution. Silicone implants are made of silicone bags filled with a cohesive silicone gel. In addition to implant type, the implant can be positioned either behind the breast tissue or beneath the pectoral muscle. The choice depends on several factors including your goals and objectives.
