What is Breast Augmentation?
More commonly known as a “boob job,” breast augmentation is a type of plastic surgery that enlarges a woman’s breasts. Saline or silicone implants are used to add volume, shape and fullness to the breasts, and you can choose from several options to find the breast shape that is right for you.
What are Breast Implants?
Breast implants are silicone shells that are filled with saline or silicone. The implants are placed on top of or under the pectoral muscle. In addition to the filling of the breast implant, you can also choose:
- Teardrop or round
- Cup size
What is Breast Implant Removal?
Some women choose to have their implants removed because they feel that their breast size no longer suits their lifestyles or they wish to have the implants replaced. Dr. Pratt offers breast implant removal to help meet the cosmetic goals of women who want to remove or replace their implants.
What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
- Improves body proportions
- Helps a woman feel more feminine
- Gives the breasts improved shape and fullness
How is Breast Augmentation Performed?
A boob job is performed under general anesthesia and may be combined with a breast lift. General anesthesia is required, and the incisions are placed in a manner that hides the resulting scars. Dr. Pratt may use liposuction as part of the procedure to refine the results of the surgery.
How Do I Prepare for Breast Augmentation?
