Breast Augmentation – Mammoplasty
Enhancing Your Appearance with a Breast Augmentation
|Procedure: Breast Augmentation||Symptoms/Indications:||Treatment Description:|
Breast augmentation (mammoplasty) is one of the most common procedures performed annually by members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Breast augmentation is a procedure using implants to enlarge small breasts, rebalance breasts of different sizes or proportion, and restore fullness.
There are a number of reasons women elect to have breast augmentation, including:
Implants are placed under the muscle and/or breast tissue. There are multiple surgical and implant options based on your personal preferences.
Schedule a consultation to see if the new “high-profile” breast implant – designed to achieve better breast projection and fuller, more natural-looking breasts – is right for you.

Is breast augmentation right for me?
The following are common concerns or conditions that may qualify you as a candidate for breast augmentation.
- You are bothered by the feeling your breasts are not proportional to your body.
- Your breasts have lost shape and/or fullness due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
- You are bothered by inconsistent size or shape due to abnormal natural development, mastectomy, or injury.
- You are not comfortable with the fit or look of your bust line in clothing/bathing suits
What breast augmentation will not do:
Breasts that are sagging considerably may require a combination of breast augmentation with a breast lift (mastoplexy), which can often be accomplished simultaneously. A breast lift raises and firms breasts through a combination of reshaping and tightening of tissue, and removal of excess skin. For more information on the breast lift procedure, please click here.
