Breast augmentation has been one of the most commonly performed procedures that women have chosen since the advent of the operation over 30 years ago. There are many options available for women choosing this procedure, depending on their personal preferences. Breast size is one important consideration, and one effective way to predict how a woman will look is for her to view "before and after" pictures of women who are similar to her body type. All consultations include this important step, and some women may also wish to see the actual implants for themselves or even try them on beneath their clothing to get an idea of their size after surgery.
Some improvement in the breast shape can be made by placement of breast implants, and previewing this change is another important role for the "before and after" pictures. Although some degree of "lift" can be expected from a breast augmentation, placement of implants alone is usually not sufficient for women who desire a major change in their breast shape. A breast lift can often be combined with an augmentation to provide the most pleasing results.
The location of the incision is of concern to many women. Using the latest video endoscopic techniques, Dr. LoMonaco can perform the surgery through a nearly undetectable incision in the armpit area. Other patients may wish to have an easily concealed incision beneath the breast. No single technique is right for every patient, but by performing a careful interview and examination, you can reach a decision that offers the best results for you.
