Breast augmentation may only partially correct drooping or sagging breasts. A breast lift is often performed along with augmentation for optimal results.
Implants may also be used during reconstructive surgery following a mastectomy.
Our cosmetic surgeons are widely experienced in the latest implant designs and techniques and can create a very natural look during this outpatient surgery.
Saline breast implants - These implants are filled with saline or sterile salt water. They offer a uniform shape and feel.
Silicone breast implants – These implants are filled with a silicone gel that feels like natural breast tissue. This type of implant is FDA-approved for women aged 22 and older.
Fat transfer augmentation – This procedure involves harvesting fat from other parts of the body and injecting it into the breasts. This is an option for women who seek only a minimal increase in breast size.
The type of implant that is best for you will be decided upon in consultation with your surgeon.
