Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States.
Breast augmentation can give a woman’s bust a fuller, firmer appearance by way of breast implants. Implants are filled with silicone gel or saline (salt water). Breast enlargement is accomplished by inserting the implant behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscles, and may be combined with other procedures such as a breast lift for optimal results. In order to keep scar visibility to an absolute minimum, Dr. Kaufman places the incisions at inconspicuous locations, usually under the breast, around the lower part of the areola, or in the armpit. The method of inserting and positioning the implant, as well as the type of implant used, will depend on your preferences, your anatomy, and Dr. Kaufman’s recommendation.
