Breast Augmentation for Women

Sometimes, women want to correct the results of a previous procedure. Breast augmentation can improve or increase the size and shape of your breasts. But is the surgical procedure the right step for you?

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentations are performed on women of almost any age. The procedure involves making an incision either under the breast, in the armpit usually.  The small incision allows Dr. Eric Schaffer to insert the implant. The implant can lift sagging breasts or give them a more rounded or teardrop shape. The implants can also give women back their breasts after another surgery.

The placement of the implants determines the final results.

Dr. Eric Schaffer has perfected the procedure by using a hidden scar technique. The incision is made on the armpit, underneath the breast, or around the nipple. The barely visible incision scar doesn’t take away from your breasts’ appearance.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Almost any woman in good health, both mentally and physically, is typically a good candidate for breast augmentation.

However, women who are pregnant or nursing will want to wait at least six months before scheduling an appointment.

Going into the procedure, it’s vital to keep your expectations realistic. The procedure will improve the shape and size of your breasts, but it will not completely transform your overall figure.

Women with asymmetrical or sagging breasts are strong candidates for breast augmentation. The implants can also increase breast size. It’s a common complaint among women, and breast size can also affect a woman’s sense of confidence.
