breast augmentation in San Diego

As a testament to providing the highest standards in plastic surgery, Dr. Carlos Chacon utilizes the three most trusted makers — Sientra®, Allergan®, and  Mentor® saline and silicone implants for every San Diego breast augmentation client. Mentor® announced in a press release on June 14 that one of their silicone implants was recently approved by FDA — the MemoryShape™ breast implants.

Teardrop Shaped Implants

The recently-approved Mentor silicone implants have a slightly tapered appearance. With its teardrop shape and highly cohesive gel, these implants are suitable for women who wish to retain the youthful firmness and natural look of their breasts. Also, it is interesting to note that each MemoryShape™ breast implant features the SILTEX® Texture which help keep the implant in place.

Silicone breast implants are indicated for breast enhancement surgeries in women who are at least 22 years old and breast reconstruction.

Are You an Ideal Candidate?

Women have a variety of reasons for seeking Dr. Chacon’s breast augmentation services. Some may have underdeveloped breasts while others may have experienced childbirth or massive weight loss which lead to the appearance of sagging breasts. An ideal candidate for a San Diego breast enhancement surgery includes the following:

  • your breasts have lost their firmness after childbirth and breastfeeding

  • massive weight loss has changed the shape and appearance of your breasts

  • you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breast, and feel self-conscious when wearing form-fitting tops and swimsuits

  • one of your breasts is noticeably smaller than the other one

To ensure that you understand and feel comfortable with the steps of your procedure, Dr. Chacon will extensively discuss with you your goals and expectations   He will also explain incision placement, type of implant, implant position, and size before you proceed with surgery. Dr. Chacon believes that an open, two-way conversation with his patients is the best approach to deciding which surgical plan will deliver the best possible results for each individual patient.
