Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)
Breast augmentation surgery requires an implant to increase the size of the breast and to improve the shape of the breast. Saline or silicone implants are placed beneath the breast tissue or beneath the chest muscle. This procedure is popular with women who feel that their breasts are too small for their bodies. Many women whose breasts have decreased in size due to weight loss or pregnancy opt for Breast There is a wide range of options for today’s Breast Augmentation patients. The size, shape, and type of implant, as well as the location of the incision and the placement of the implant, are all decisions that should be made during your initial consultation with Dr. Finger.
Dr. Finger performs all of the currently available breast augmentation techniques, including the trans-axillary approach, which uses an incision in the underarm area. The more traditional options are the inframammary incision in the crease beneath the breast and the periareolar incision at the edge of the areola. Some of these methods can only be used with saline implants, so patients who are having silicone or cohesive gel implants placed will have fewer options for the placement of their incisions.
