Breast Augmentation

What is Augmentation?

Dr. Schaffer has given many women a new improved body image and enhanced confidence since introducing his hidden scar technique for BREAST AUGMENTATION in 1986. You, too, can enjoy the benefits of Dr. Schaffer’s BREAST AUGMENTATION technique. Dr. Schaffer prefers to insert the breast implant through a tiny, nearly invisible incision at the very top of your armpit. Your result – absolutely no scar on the breast, and best of all, your breast remains intact as the surgery is performed behind your muscle. Therefore, there is little to no interference with your nipple sensation or your ability to breastfeed. When placed behind the muscle, the implants create a softer more natural shape – and are often so natural feeling, that only you and Dr. Schaffer will know for sure!

Over the decades, Dr. Schaffer has built a fine reputation for BREAST AUGMENTATION. Recognized as one of the nation’s top doctors, many of his patients come from out of state or even from other countries. While most patients are seeking breast augmentation surgery for the first time, many are consulting for improvement of previous breast surgeries performed elsewhere that have left them less than completely happy. Dr. Schaffer will confidentially and extensively consult with you about what works best for you including: incision placement (armpit, nipple, lower breast crease or umbilicus), implant type (silicone/saline, smooth/textured, round/teardrop, moderate/high profile), and implant position (in front/behind the muscles).

What is a Breast Lift?

Breast lift (mastopexy) is used to enhance breast appearance. Mastopexy can be utilized to correct sagging of the breast and is often performed alone or in combination with breast augmentation. If you have developed drooping of your breasts due to pregnancy, nursing, weight change, gravity or just plain bad luck, Dr. Schaffer can help. Several types of breast lifts are available and great care will be used to select the procedure that is best for you. Please refer to the breast lift/mastopexy section of this website for further details.

Sometimes, breast augmentation by itself is all that is needed to uplift and restore your youthful breast contour. You can be assured, Dr. Schaffer will help you choose the procedure that best fits your body. Getting breast augmentation is a big decision and it is important to become fully informed. Dr. Eric Schaffer, a San Antonio breast implant specialist, will answer any questions that you may have about breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Augmentation Procedure

The breast augmentation procedure is one of the most popular procedures performed in the United States today, as many women desire to enhance the shape and size of their breasts for many personal reasons. Many times women are born with naturally small breasts that are not in proportion to the rest of their body, or there may be a decrease in breast size after nursing or weight loss. Not only can breast augmentation increase the size of small breasts, the procedure can also bring more symmetry to asymmetrical breasts in which one breast is noticeably smaller than the other. Breast augmentation has become one of the most popular procedures today for these reasons and many others including its outstanding record for safety.

An ideal candidate for this procedure should be in good health both physically and mentally, and you should have realistic expectations for the procedure and the potential outcome of the enhancement. Breast augmentation may be an excellent choice for a woman who has long been bothered by the naturally small size of her breasts, a woman with difficulty finding clothes or swimsuits that fit on top, a woman with disproportionately small breasts compared to the rest of her body, a woman with asymmetrical breasts, and a woman whose breasts have diminished in size and/or firmness after weight loss or childbirth.

The most important step in your breast augmentation journey is finding a suitable plastic surgeon for you. San Antonio based Dr. Eric Schaffer is a double board certified plastic surgeon, who is one of the foremost authorities in the Southwest on innovative body contouring cosmetic procedures. With board certification from The American Board of Plastic Surgery, you can trust in Dr. Schaffer’s keen aesthetic eyes to give you the results you desire. Dr. Schaffer trained in general surgery at Harvard Medical School and at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, and he went on to learn the art and science of plastic surgery at Yale University.
