There are a number of reasons why breast augmentation has become popular. Some women simply want to feel better about their appearance. Many just want to be able to wear stylish clothing and bathing suits and feel more self-confident. Others have lost breast volume and “perkiness” after pregnancies and want to feel restored.
For many women, breast enhancement surgery provides a high degree of satisfaction and an increase in self-confidence. If you are considering breast augmentation, it’s important to be aware of all of the options available to you. Here at Plastic Surgery Professionals, we use a 3-Step System during your Consultation that will help you make a decision that’s best suited to your needs.
Step 1: You tell us your goals and objectives so we understand what you are looking for.
Step 2: We will examine you and note certain measurements. We utilize a bio-dimensional approach which takes into account important aspects of your chest size and form. You are then presented with the options of implant size, style and type so you can have a clearer understanding of what might be best suited to your needs. We will show you sample implants to help you get a better feel for your options.
Step 3: We help you decide what type of surgery is best for you after discussing the advantages and disadvantages of the various approaches and the risks and implant issues you should know about.

|Incisions: You have choices when it comes to having your breast surgery. At Plastic Surgery Professionals, we will show you the choices for where the incisions are placed (and thus where the scars end up.) The image on the left shows the locations commonly used for placing implants. During your consultation, you will also be informed of the advantages and disadvantages of each of these to help you make an informed decision.|
|Implants: You have choices here, too. What type, saline or silicone? What style?, Should they be placed over the chest muscle or under the muscle? The figure to the right shows the difference in placement. The left hand panel shows the implant on top of the pectoral muscle. The right hand panel shows the implant below the muscle.|
|Which is best for you? It depends on a number of factors as well as your preferences. At the time of your consultation, we will try to give you a feel for the pros and cons of the different approaches and help you make a good decision for your personal situation.|
