Breast augmentation, breast implants, boob job… however you call it, this surgery makes breasts larger. This is one of the most commonly requested and performed plastic surgeries across the country (and in my practice!). This is a surgery where one size does not fit all (see more of my thoughts on size here). Some women are looking to restore what changed after having children. Others want to look more balanced between their hips and their chest. Many don’t want their change to be obvious (and it doesn’t have to be, unless that is what you want). The reasons are varied and personal.
Breast implants are safe for use, including those filled with silicone. The silicone implants used today are very different than those used in the 1980s and 1990s. Most of my patients opt for silicone implants because of their natural look and feel, and most of my patients opt for a dual plane implant position (under the muscle at the top and under the breast only at the bottom) for a natural appearance and a low risk of complications.
With warm weather FINALLY arriving for spring, bathing suit season is not far off. Most women who have this surgery can return to work in a week, with a few more weeks required before hitting the pool, hot tub, and plane. For more information, please call the office to make an appointment at 248-273-7700.
