Breast Augmentation San Antonio

There are many reasons which contribute to women opting for a breast augmentation. San Antonio plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Schaffer provides his breast augmentation patients with an exceptional breast augmentation experience by listening to their breast goals and concerns and devising a plan to achieve those results in the best way possible.

Dr. Schaffer has helped countless women achieve the most natural breast implants results by using his hidden scar technique. Breast implant incisions are made at the very top of the armpit and are very small in size. By using this method, patients are left with absolutely no scar on the breast. Another benefit to breast implants being inserted through the armpit is that the breast remains intact and eliminates the risk of losing sensation of the nipples.

Dr. Schaffer offers both saline and silicone implants as well as options for incision placement. During the initial breast augmentation consultation, the patients wishes for final appearance are discussed and a surgical plan is created to meet their goals. For some, this may mean additional breast procedures such as a breast lift to meet those goals.
