Reclaim confidence in your figure.

Breast Augmentation

For many women, recapturing a youthful figure through breast augmentation can be the change they need to once again feel confident in their bodies. Our surgeons use the latest techniques and implants available to produce beautiful, natural and youthful breast appearances.

Our office will work with you to discover your specific enhancement goals in order to recommend an appropriate size and shape for the procedure. The location of the incision is also determined after the discussion and examination. We offer silicone (our silicone implants are always the gummy bear type of implants), and saline implants. Special care will be taken to ensure you are getting the aesthetic and shape you desire.

Implant Variables

Incision Location

Incision Location

There are three common incision sites surgeons use for breast augmentation: the periareolar incision (areola), the transaxillary incision (in the armpit), and the most popular option, the inframammary incision (the natural crease under the breast that hides the scarring.) The incision technique chosen will vary depending on the implant type, the size of the enlargement, each woman’s particular anatomy and the preference of the surgeon and patient.



You have two options when it comes to selecting the type of implant you would like to use for your augmentation: silicone or saline.

Most patients choose silicone breast implants, which are filled with silicone gel. The gel has the feel and movement similar to natural breast tissue. If a silicone breast implant develops a leak, the gel may escape into the area of tissue in which the implant was placed. A leaking implant filled with silicone gel will not collapse.

Saline breast implants can be chosen as well and are filled with sterile saltwater. The amount of saline in the implant can vary, affecting the feel, firmness and actual shape of the breast. Saline is harmless to the patient, and in the case of a leak, the saline will be absorbed naturally by the body.



It may seem like an unnecessary addition to your breast augmentation cost, but a warranty will add value to your breast augmentation surgery because it will protect you from added costs in the future. Some warranties are free with the purchase of the implants. Each surgeon has different policies regarding warranties, so be sure to discuss it during your consultation.



For patients who are not able to pay for cosmetic procedures up front, there are patient financing options available. Financing offers patients the option to cut down the initial breast augmentation cost by allowing you to make payments that fit your budget. Some surgeons may offer financing options through an outside source associated with their practice, or you may be encouraged to find your own financing through a different provider.

What to Expect During the Surgery

Step One: Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during breast augmentation surgery. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your physician will recommend the best choice for you. Our physicians inject a nerve-blocking agent during the initial stages of surgery. This significantly decreases the pain of recovery for about two to three days.

Step Two: Incision

Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring. You and your plastic surgeon will discuss which incision options are appropriate for your desired outcome. The incision will be made on one of the three options mentioned above.

Step Three: Choosing an Implant

Breast size and shape are important, so be honest and open about your expectations when talking with your surgeon. Implant type and size will be determined not just based on your desired increase in size but more importantly on your breast anatomy, skin elasticity and body type.

Step Four: Inserting the Implant

After the incision is made, a breast implant is inserted into a pocket either under the pectoral muscle (a submuscular placement) or directly behind the breast tissue and over the pectoral muscle (a submammary/subglandular placement).

Step Five: Closing the Incisions

Incisions are closed with layered sutures in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive, or surgical tape to close the skin. Over time, the incision lines will fade.

Step Six: Seeing the Results

The results of breast augmentation surgery are immediately visible. Over time, post-surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover and realize the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.
