Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammoplasty)

Fulfill your desire for fuller breasts and restore breast volume.

You’ve been thinking about it for years, and your time is now. Request a consultation with our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon to talk about breast augmentation surgery.

The South Florida lifestyle is active and the weather is warm.  Women are in bathing suits or clothing designed for staying cool.  Breast augmentation is the second-most common cosmetic operation performed in the United States today.

Breast augmentation surgery, also commonly referred to as a “boob-job” involves using breast implants to create fuller breasts (breast enlargement) or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy (breast enhancement). Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.

What can breast augmentation do?

  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve breast symmetry
  • Improve the balance of your figure
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

What breast augmentation cannot do

  • Correct severely drooping breasts.

Am I a candidate for breast augmentation?

There are many reasons why breast augmentation may be appropriate for you. Some breasts are small or uneven as a result of their natural development. Others may have become smaller following pregnancy or as the result of weight loss. A breast augmentation can balance out your body proportions and improve your silhouette.

Pregnant or breast-feeding women are not candidates.

If your breasts are not fully developed you are not a candidate.

There are several other medical conditions that may prohibit you from having breast augmentation surgery, such as active infection, certain auto-immune disease or recent radiation therapy.

As with all plastic surgery, a thorough health assessment and realistic expectations are prerequisites. Your understanding of procedures, routines, and risks is essential to a successful final result. Following your consultation, we continue our discussion at the preoperative appointment.

The success and safety of your surgery depends very much on your complete candidness during your initial consultation. Your doctor will ask a number of questions about your health, desires, and lifestyle.
