For women seeking breast augmentations, the reasons are highly personal and varied. Perhaps you feel dissatisfied with the size of your breasts or have reduced breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy. Regardless of the motivation, Dr. Whetstone will provide you with all of the information you need to prepare for your decision to have breast augmentation.
WHAT IS BREAST AUGMENTATION?
Breast Augmentation involves using breast implants to increase the size of your breast. It can restore breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape or correct asymmetry. Both saline and silicone implants are available and safe for breast augmentation surgery. You will select an implant after a thorough discussion about which is the appropriate choice to meet your goals and expectations. With the patient under general anesthesia, Dr. Whetstone inserts saline or silicone implants in the patient’s desired size underneath existing breast tissue.
CANDIDATES FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION
The best way to decide whether or not breast augmentation is right for you is to meet with Dr. Whetstone for a complimentary consultation.
