Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure that increases the size and helps shape a woman’s breast through either a silicone gel-filled implant or a saline-filled (salt water) implant. Implants can be placed through a small incision around the areola, breast fold, or armpit. The goals are to increase the volume of the breasts with a natural appearance and feel.
During the first visit, we evaluate every patient individually and take time to thoroughly discuss all available options to meet the patient's goals for a beautiful natural result. During the second visit, all patients are personally sized by Dr. Barroso to help decide the size and volume of the implant. This is a critical decision that Dr. Barroso does not delegate to any other staff member. By combining Dr. Barroso's years of experience and the patient's personal input, we can find the most appropriate size implant that will satisfy the patient's needs. Because of the time we invest in our patients, our patients are confident that they will neither be too big nor too small.
Breast Augmentations are performed under general anesthesia and typically take one hour to complete. Patients go home the same day of surgery and return to light physical activities within a few days.
