Breast Augmentation

Full, shapely breasts can make any woman feel more feminine, beautiful, and self-assured. We believe that every woman deserves to love her body; that’s why we have mastered the art of breast augmentation. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure designed to increase and enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. The result is a more curvaceous, sexy bust line and a natural, sculpted look.
During this outpatient procedure, an incision is made around the areola, the dark circle of skin surrounding the nipple, and a saline filled implant is carefully inserted either under or above the pectoral muscles. Some doctors prefer to place the implant under the chest muscles; doing so allows the muscles to act as a “built in elastic bra.” Once the implant is in place, the incision is stitched closed. The procedure is performed under anesthesia, and it takes approximately one hour to complete. During recovery, patients typically experience breast sensitivity, soreness, swelling, and possible temporary decreased nipple sensation, but most side effects subside as breasts heal (usually within three to six weeks).  

Saline Implants

  1. A variety of profiles to choose from, including round, tear drop shaped, textured and un-textured.
  2. Safety has been identified by the FDA for a long standing time.
  3. Easy diagnosis of leakage or rupture because the implant will deflate and becomes noticeable to the naked eye.
  4. Mammography can produce accurate results for cancer detection. 

Silicone Implants

  1. Encased in a shell, very natural feel and look both clothed and unclothed.
  2. MRI requirement every two to three years to uncover possible abnormalities surrounding the implant because defects are not necessarily apparent to the naked eye.
  3. Safety was concern and silicone was not available for cosmetic use over the past several years. Since then, the FDA has approved silicone for cosmetic use.
  4. Silicone breast implants cost more and the MRI is not covered by insurance.


Breast Lift

Pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss or gain, or the natural aging process can cause breasts to lose their natural elasticity and breasts may begin to sag or hang. Breast lift can take years off your body by correcting a drooping bust line and restoring your curves to their youthful state.
During the procedure, excess skin and tissue are trimmed away and the bustline is tightened and lifted. Remaining tissue and the nipples will be repositioned to create the most natural-looking results. Risks include scarring, temporary bruising, swelling, and loss of feeling in the breasts or nipples. Nonetheless, breast lift is considered an extremely safe, effective procedure. The procedure takes one or more hours to complete and is often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation

Breast Lift Technique

The breast lift technique involves three incisions that form an anchor shape extending from the nipple and aerola. The plastic surgeon will then trim away excess skin, lift breast tissue and suture it into the elevated position. Usually, the nipple and aerola must be repositioned and sutured in place. 

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation may be women who wish to increase the size of their breasts for a number of reasons including:

  • Women who feel their breast size is too small or disproportionate to their body
  • Women who have developed uneven breasts and would like to achieve symmetry
  • Women who have lost a large amount of weight and their breasts have shrunken
  • Women whose breast size and shape changed after pregnancy

It is also crucial for women seeking breast augmentation learn about the risks and benefits of this procedure and have realistic expectations of the results.

Like with any other surgery, there are risks associated with breast augmentation. Possible complications may include reactions to anesthesia, blood clots, infection, and changes in breast or nipple sensation. One of the most common risks linked to breast augmentation is capsular contracture, which occurs when the scar around the implant hardens or becomes tight or if there is extreme scar tissue around the implant.

Capsular contracture squeezes the soft implant causing the breast to feel hard. In some cases, breast implants may tear or rupture and cause a leakage in the breast. Most side effects of breast augmentation like swelling, bruising, scars, and hardness will disappear over time. It is important to discuss all risks and benefits of breast augmentation with a qualified plastic surgeon before undergoing the procedure.


Good candidates for breast lifts may have breasts that sag, breasts that lack substance or firmness, and nipples and areolas that point downward.

A breast lift can:

• Reverse the effects of sagging breasts.
• Correct imbalances in shape, size or look of the breasts.
• Reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).
• Regain the volume and look of breasts prior to pregnancy and nursing.
• Reverse the effects of stretched, saggy skin caused by significant weight loss.
• Can be used to reduce breast size.
