Breast augmentation surgery uses prosthetic implants to increase the size of a woman’s breast. This procedure is performed for a variety of reasons: enlarging breasts that have little or no tissue, enhancing the shape of the breast for a more feminine appearance, replacing breast volume that may have been lost after nursing or pregnancy, and correcting asymmetry that may have resulted from underdevelopment of one or both breasts.
Breast augmentation is the number one surgical procedure among plastic surgery patients and has one of the highest satisfaction rates among all operations. Most women are very satisfied with the results of having a breast augmentation and would recommend it for a friend or family member. In addition to restoring lost volume and creating a more youthful, feminine appearance, this procedure can have a very positive impact on a patient’s confidence and self-esteem.
There are a number of different incisions that can be used to perform a breast augmentation, as well different spaces within the breast to place the implant. There are several types of implants to choose from, which differ in size, shape, composition and profile. Dr. Parson understands and appreciates that not every patient is the same, so not every patient should receive the same exact method of surgery.
