Breast Augmentation

(Augmentation Mammaplasty)

Breast augmentation is a very popular procedure for women and among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. There may be various reasons why a woman would choose to undergo breast augmentation. These personal reasons may center around breasts that are perceived to be underdeveloped, or because of asymmetry of the breasts in size or shape or from changes after pregnancy or breastfeeding. You may be happy with your breasts, but just want them made fuller. Often after weight loss, aging, or childbirth a woman’s breast volume and shape may change. This can lead a woman to seek a breast augmentation. Breast implant surgery performed by cosmetic plastic surgeons is the most popular way to improve breast shape and size. Breast enhancement using breast implants can give a woman a more proportional shape and may improve self-esteem.

When performing breast augmentation surgery, incisions for placing the implants are made to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible. Dr. DiBello prefers placing implants beneath the chest wall muscle.  After surgery, breasts will appear “fuller” and more shapely in contour.  Incision scars from breast augmentation surgery will typically fade over time.

Saline implants have been extensively studied and there is a great deal of scientific evidence supporting their long-term safety. During your consultation with Dr. DiBello, you will be provided with a significant amount of literature for your review and you will be counseled extensively regarding the known risks associated with implants which will help you determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
