Breast Augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances the shape and size of the breast using breast implants. Smooth round silicone implants from Allergan and Sientra are used in our practice. This implant type tends to impart some rounding and fullness to the upper pole of the breast. Breast implant position is generally behind the pectoral muscle and an infra-mammary incision is used in most cases. Implant size selection is based on a patient's preference for post-operative breast shape and size. Breast implant surgery can be completed in about an hour in the operating room. Most patients are back to work in 3-4 days.
