Breast Augmentation < Home  
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.

Before and after photos of Dr.LoMonaco's breast augmentation procedures:
  Before   After
Breast augementation can help provide more fullness to the upper part of the breast and a rounder, fuller shape.  
  Before   After
This patient was a 39 year old woman who desired more breast fullness, especially in the upper portion. She was happy with the size and shape of her breasts before her pregnancies.   She underwent placement of 420cc smooth saline implants on top of the muscle and has been delighted with her results.  
  Before   After
This 27 year old, who is active in sports and weight lifting, requested a size increase from a "B" cup to a "D" cup.   She had 490cc implants placed on top of the muscle to allow her to continue her physical activities without shifting of the implants.  
  Before   After
This 27 year old, who is active in sports and weight lifting, requested a size increase from a "B" cup to a "D" cup.   Because she was very thin, placement of the implants behind the muscle was done to hide rippling and visibility of the implant as much as possible.  
  Before   After
This 29 year old woman emphasized that she wanted a natural look after her augmentation.   Low profile, smooth implants were placed on top of the muscle to give her the fullness she desired.  
  Before   After
   
This 28 year old patient had 320cc round implants placed under the muscle to give a natural, rounded appearance.   The implants took about 6 weeks to settle.  
  Before   After
This 31 year old woman desired more fullness in the upper breast and a fuller look.   She had 300cc smooth implants placed on top of the muscle.
