THE PROCEDURE

Anesthesia

Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedure. An anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia, which is nearly always required for this procedure.

For more information about your breast augmentation procedure, please contact us online or call us at We look forward to helping you look your best.

HOW WE DO IT: TUTORIAL

The procedure typically takes about one hour depending on the individual and certain surgical variables.

There are five basic steps to a Breast Augmentation.

Step 1 – The Incisions

A 1-inch incision is made through the skin, and carried down to the pectoralis muscle, which covers the anterior chest wall.

Step 2 – Creating the pocket

A space is made for the implant, either under or over the pectoralis muscle.

Step 3 – Determining the right size of implant

A temporary saline-filled sizer is used to determine which size implant should be used. Saline can be added or removed to determine which range of volume will give the desired appearance.

Step 4 – Placing the implant

The pocket is washed with saline and antibiotic solution is placed. The permanent implant is placed and positioned correctly in the pocket. We then sit the patient up to check for symmetry. We make minor adjustments as necessary to make the breasts as symmetrical as possible.

Step 5 - Closing the incisions

The pocket and the skin are meticulously closed with sutures. We use removable sutures on the skin to minimize scarring.
