Why choose Breast Augmentation?
Women who perceive their breasts as out of proportion with their body, or have loss of breast tissue from nursing, or weight loss choose Breast Augmentation. Breast Augmentation is a wonderful way to enhance your natural contour and help you feel more confident. Millions of breast augmentation procedures have been performed since the 1960’s with overwhelming patient satisfaction. Now there are many choices of implants and surgical approaches to design your procedure to suit your individual needs. Breast Augmentation is safe, does not interfere with your ability to breast feed, does interfere with your ability to have mammography and does not cause any harm to breast tissue.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses implants to reshape and provide necessary volume to the breast. The implants are placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles to help increase size and or fullness of the breast. The implants can be made of silicone or saline. Newer silicone implants contain silicone that is more cohesive, meaning it is not thin like liquid and therefore does not “run” or “spread” like the older silicone implants use to do. Saline implants are filled with salty water and have been widely used since 1991. Implants also come in many varied sizes and shapes to accommodate your individual anatomical needs.
How we are different.
There is a common misconception that breast augmentation is merely putting in an implant. Nothing could be further than the truth. Breast Augmentation when performed correctly is a sophisticated procedure that requires meticulous planning and precise execution. It is a “re-shaping” of the breast in which the implant provides the necessary volume. We strive to provide you with beautiful breasts that are natural appearing and in proportion with your body.
We offer many choices of implants and surgical approaches to design your procedure and meet your individual needs. There are three main choices of procedure: underneath the fold of your breast, (infra-mammary), around the areola, (peri-areolar), and in the armpit (trans-axillary). Trans-axillary breast augmentation is a means to obtain breast augmentation without having scars on your breast. It requires an elevated level of skill and is performed less frequently because of the extra training, and specialized equipment. Dr. Bensimon has extensive experience with this approach and is happy to provide it as an option.
