Breast Enhancement / Breast Augmentation Expectations


What can I expect on my first visit when I come to your Scottsdale Plastic Surgery Office?

When you come to our Scottsdale office, you will consult with our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Shaun Parson. He will review your medical and family history and discuss what your goals are regarding breast surgery. He will examine you and discuss all the issues pertaining to your current breast size, your desires, and what is and is not surgically possible. Be assured that together you will review all of the information and make the choice that is best for you.

Is the procedure performed at your Scottsdale office?

Your procedure will be performed at one of our accredited surgery centers in Scottsdale. They all have state of-the-art equipment and with a highly experienced and certified medical staff, your safety is well assured. You will receive first class hospital-standard care at our modern surgical facility before, during, and after your breast surgery.

Is silicone breast augmentation the only type of breast augmentation surgery you do?

Silicone breast augmentation is not the only type of breast augmentation surgery we do. During your first visit, the type of breast augmentation surgery will be determined based on a variety of factors. For example, Dr. Shaun Parson will explain whether he recommends silicone breast implants or saline implants. A variety of types and sizes of implants are available. Dr. Parson will recommend the one that best suits your body and your goals.

Are there any breast enhancement methods that do not require surgical implants?

There are many claims advertising breast enhancement without using implants.
It is our educated and researched opinion that they do not work, nor do injections or creams. No one who claims breast enhancement can occur naturally is telling you the truth (unless you are at an age when you are still developing).

What is involved in a breast augmentation procedure?

We want you to be fully knowledgeable about breast surgery so you will know what to expect. Breast augmentation is an outpatient surgery, normally takes about 2 hours, depending upon which anesthesia our board-certified anesthesiologist administers.


For the first 24 hours after surgery, you will need a responsible adult who can help you with taking your medications, eating, drinking, and going to the bathroom. You can expect some discomfort; however, pain medications, as well as antibiotics will be prescribed for you.


You will receive additional information during your initial consultation, as well as on the day of your surgery.

Who is the plastic surgeon that will perform the cosmetic surgery?

Dr. Shaun Parson is our certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience. Trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, Dr. Parson was Chairman of Plastic Surgery and Chief of Surgery at Scottsdale Healthcare Shea Hospital. He is a Diplomate of The American Board of Plastic Surgery and The American Board of Surgery. He is also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. In addition, Dr. Parson is a Member the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

How much do breast augmentations cost?

The cost of breast augmentation varies a great deal. We set our prices according to which procedure or procedures you require. Cost will be discussed during your first consultation, and you will receive written confirmation of the price in advance of your procedure.

Do you take before and after photographs?

Yes, we do take before and after photographs. Patients will be able to access these photos using TOUCHMD. We will NEVER use your before or after photos without your permission. We assure you that your photos are not readily accessible and that we treat confidentiality and privacy with the utmost seriousness.
