Breast Augmentation

Top Doctor 2010 - Breast ImplantsBreast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breast for a number of reasons:

  • To enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small.
  • To correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy.
  • To balance a difference in breast size.
  • As a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.

A natural appearing breast augmentation result requires balancing a number of factors. The size of the implant is of course an important consideration, but the right base diameter is what helps create natural cleavage, without a wide space between the breasts or having them too close together. My most commonly used technique is the split submuscular/subfascial method, which provides good coverage but minimizes the chances of distortion with muscle activity which can occur with the most popularly used submuscular method.
