Breast augmentation, or enlargement, remains one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures performed. An implant is placed behind the breast tissue either in front of, or behind, the muscle to enhance the shape and size of the breast. Ideal implant placement along with the choice of the right breast augmentation procedure will be determined after a consultation with Dr. Gallas. Decisions will be made regarding the size, shape and type of implant. Different techniques – including implant position and incision choice for achieving your desired improvements – will also be discussed in detail. This discussion will focus on your concerns and goals. Relevant history relating to the breast such as previous surgery, pregnancy, breastfeeding and family history of breast cancer will be explored. Breast augmentation in the presence of breast ptosis, or “droopiness,” requires correction with mastopexy (breast lift) in addition to augmentation. This is particularly common after pregnancy or other instances of weight gain and loss.
