How does breast augmentation work?
During breast augmentation surgery, the breasts are enlarged by inserting saline or silicone implants behind the breast tissue or below the pectoral muscle of the chest. The physician will make a small incision either under the breast, under the the areola or in the armpit, and place the implant from there. In consultation with Dr. Staebel, you can select the type of implant and technique to be used based upon your aesthetic goals, breast shape and the frame size. The process can be performed as an outpatient procedure or in a hospital under general anesthesia.
What benefits can I expect from breast augmentation?
With breast implants, you can increase the size, shape, symmetry, and firmness of your breasts. It is a safe and effective procedure that will not only enhance your bustline, but your self-confidence as well. The result is a beautiful, well-proportioned silhouette ready to be showcased in today’s most alluring fashions.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?
A consultation with Dr. Staebel will involve a thorough discussion of your medical history, what can realistically be achieved, and post-surgical expectations. The doctor will also consider the following:
- Are your breasts in proportion to your hips?
- Is one breast noticeably larger than the other?
- Are your breasts underdeveloped in relation to your overall body frame
- Do you feel uncomfortable in swimwear or other form-fitting clothes because of your breast size?
