This woman in her late thirties from western Massachusetts came to my office to discuss breast augmentation after pregnancy. She was interested in breast augmentation at my Boston-area practice because she wanted fullness in her upper breasts while improving her figure balance. She had asymmetric breast ptosis; however, she declined a breast lift. A breast lift would have required more scars but would have lifted the nipples and made them more even. After reviewing her breast augmentation options, this patient chose to have 350cc mid profile silicone gel implants placed under the muscle (dual plane) using an incision underneath the breast (inframammary).

The surgery takes about an hour, and patients are ready to go home shortly after the surgery is finished. I do not use drains of tight wraps and patients often do not require narcotic pain medication. Patients generally resume normal activities within one or two days following surgery.

If you are interested in breast augmentation that will reliably give you the aesthetic result you wish with minimal post operative pain and recovery time, please contact my office by phone at 617.505.6818 or click request a consultation. You and I will discuss and define your goals from surgery so that you will make the best decisions for yourself. As part of our consultation we can use three dimensional photography which allows us to simulate the look of the breasts after surgery as one tool to help in your decision making process.
