Breast Augmentation

Enhance your appearance and improve your self-confidence and body contour with a breast augmentation procedure! Breast augmentation involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore your breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Augmentation is sometimes performed with a breast lift procedure to improve the shape of breasts that are sagging or have lost firmness. We offer saline, silicone and shaped implants placed over or under the muscle. Incisions are placed in the axilla or in the inframammary fold and fade over time.

The procedure is usually performed as an outpatient under general anesthesia. Recovery is an individualized process; however, most patients are back to full activity in two to three weeks.

Breast Augmentation FAQ

What makes the new teardrop-shaped breast implants different from the standard, round implants?Shaped implants gradually slope from the upper pole (the highest part of the breast) to the lower pole (lower breast). This slight teardrop shape creates a youthful and very natural look.
Are these shaped implants FDA approved?Yes. In fact, these silicone shaped implants have been in surgical use for about a decade in the US and were FDA approved this year.
Is the breast augmentation procedure different with these new implants?No, it is an outpatient procedure with recovery like breast augmentation surgery with standard round implants. Most patients are fully recovered in four to six weeks
In addition to the more natural look, are there any other advantages to the new, shaped breast implants?Yes. They have lower complication rates for rupture and capsular contracture when compared to smooth round silicone implants used in breast augmentation
