What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure designed to enhance the volume of breasts. Many improvements can be expected following completion of a successful breast augmentation:
- The size of the breast may be increased to improve overall body proportion and to create a harmonious balance of the torso.
- Restore lost volume following pregnancy or weight loss.
- Provide improved symmetry between the breasts, creating a better volume and shape match
- Breast augmentation usually involves the use of a patient’s own fat or a breast prosthesis (implant) to accomplish these tasks
In general, women are very pleased with the results of Breast Augmentation and would readily undergo the procedure again.

The four primary decisions about breast augmentation:
There are four primary decisions to be made when considering breast augmentation:
- The incision used for insertion of the implant;
- The shape of the implant used;
- The size of the implant; and,
- The composition of the filler material, either silicone gel (and the variations in gel thickness) or saline.
Breast augmentation incisions
The location of your incisions is an important point to consider. The incision locations include in the breast crease at the bottom of the breast, at the bottom of the darker skin of the nipple (areola), in the armpit or through the belly button. For a multitude of reasons and patient preferences, the majority of our patients undergo this procedure through an incision in the breast crease. You’ll have an opportunity to consider the pros and cons of each of these during your consultation.
Choose the right breast surgeon
The success of your procedure is the directly impacted by the experience, skills and talents of your surgeon. It is our opinion that your surgeon is should be board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. As well, membership and active participation in the local and national plastic surgery organizations is a positive sign of expertise and ongoing education.

Membership is this society is a sign of high ethical standards and the respect of one’s colleagues.
