Breast Asymmetry Correction
Breast Augmentation and Asymmetry Correction with Breast Implants
Our physicians serving the Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse area perform breast enlargement with breast implants, medically known as augmentation mammoplasty, for a number of reasons:
- Breast enlargement can enhance breast size for women who feel their breast size is too small.
- After a pregnancy, breast size and firmness can decrease. Breast augmentation with implants can correct this.
- If one breast is smaller than the other, breast implants and/or breast reduction can correct the difference.
- Breast augmentation can be used to reconstruct a breast following surgery such as a mastectomy.
At our office in Rochester, the breast implants we use during the breast augmentation procedure are silicone shells filled with a salt-water solution known as saline. Our breast enhancement patients in Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse occasionally request breast augmentation using breast implants filled with silicone, but they are not approved by the FDA for public use.
Breast Augmentation Surgery
Our Rochester breast enlargement surgeons take a variety of factors into account when planning a breast augmentation procedure. We will make every effort to keep the resulting scars as inconspicuous as possible, taking into account your personal anatomy to determine the least visible location for breast implants. Most incisions for breast augmentation are made in the inframammary fold.
The breast augmentation surgeon will work through the incision to lift your breast tissue and skin, creating a space beneath your pectoral (chest) muscle. By placing an implant under each breast, our breast enhancement surgeons can enhance your bust contour by one or more cup sizes. If your breasts are sagging, your doctor may recommend a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation surgery.
At our facilities serving Syracuse, Buffalo, and Rochester, breast augmentation surgery with breast implants usually takes one and a half hours. When the operation is complete, the incisions are closed with absorbable stitches placed below the skin.
