Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a wonderful option for women who feel self-conscious about their bust line. Utilizing either silicone- or saline-filled implants, breast augmentation results in an increase in the volume and the size of the breasts, refining their shape and/or elevating their position for a more youthful, feminine appearance. Scars are also minimized and hidden from sight due to modern incision techniques, and the implants come in a variety of sizes and types for a natural look and feel.
One thing to keep in mind is that breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts, so in order to achieve fuller, larger breasts AND to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift can often be done at the same time as the augmentation or may require a separate operation. This will be a decision that can be talked through and made at the time of consultation with Dr. Holt.
