What is a breast augmentation procedure?
Breast augmentation surgery involves adding volume to the breast with the use of saline or silicone breast implants. The implants can be placed above or below the chest muscle, depending on the type of implant, your body type and your desired outcome, with incision placement also dependent upon the type and location of implant. In addition to achieving increased breast size, breast augmentation can be used to: correct breast asymmetries, renew breast volume after pregnancy, and create fuller, rounder and perkier breasts. For those who have lost breast volume or who have undesired droopiness, a breast lift may be performed in conjunction with your breast augmentation procedure.
Why consider a breast augmentation?
If you’re unsatisfied with the size or shape of your breasts, then you may want to consider a breast augmentation procedure. For some, the size and shape of their implants can have a dramatic impact on one’s self-esteem. When you imagine a new look you’d like to have, you may also think about the boost to your self-image and self-confidence that would come with an enhanced breast size.
Dr. Chacon will spend time, during your consult, to understand your needs, desires and expectations for your breast augmentation procedure and make his recommendation to help you achieve the best and safest result for you as his patient.
