Breast Augmentation in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Breast augmentation, or a boob job, is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the world. During this procedure, plastic surgeons Barry Schwartz, M.D., F.A.C.S. and Nathan Eberle, M.D., D.D.S., use silicone or saline breast implants to increase the size of a woman’s chest by several bra-cup sizes. Thousands of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County area women have enhanced their cleavage and given their breast size a boost with breast augmentation at the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure to augment the size of a woman’s breasts. This is normally achieved by inserting breast implants behind the natural breast to make the woman’s breasts appear larger.

Benefits Of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation can improve the self-esteem and confidence of women who have always felt uncomfortable with their small breasts, or women who have lost breast tissue, due to aging, weight loss, pregnancy or other medical conditions. For many women, finally having the figure of their dreams improves their entire outlook on life.

Trans-Axillary Breast Augmentation

Natural looking, scarless Breast Augmentation through the armpit.

The armpit approach to breast augmentation, known as the Trans-Axillary Breast Augmentation, is a method for breast enlargement used by Dr. Eberle at the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery. It is a technique that allows him to precisely and beautifully position a breast implant under a woman’s chest muscle without causing much disturbance to her breast.

When the body has fully healed from the Trans-Auxiliary Breast Augmentation procedure, scars are almost invisible to the naked eye. The patient might find them if looking close enough, but other people will not likely be able to detect the scars. No one, but the patient and Dr. Eberle, will have to know that a breast augmentation has taken place. The Trans-Auxiliary Breast Augmentation procedure is perfect for those who want to have natural feminine contours along with a scar-less body. The small and slight scars from the procedure blend naturally into the patient’s armpit, into the creases and out of sight.

Benefits of Trans-Axillary Breast Augmentation

  1. Scars fade into armpit creases and are not on the breast.
  2. Scars are difficult to detect, for the patient and for anyone looking at the patient’s body.
  3. This procedure has the least visible scars of all augmentation methods.
  4. Muscle is not cut. Natural tissue planes are simply opened up to insert the implant.
  5. Breast tissue is not injured, so there is no effect for women who want to breastfeed.
  6. Implants can be placed under the chest muscle (sub-pectoral or sub-muscular).
  7. Breast implants have less chance of bottoming out (undesirable downward movement of the implant).
  8. The risk of Capsular Contracture (undesirable implant hardening) is reduced.
  9. Implants have less chance of visible wrinkling or rippling.
  10. Patient’s mammograms are read more easily (implant is not placed directly behind the breast tissue).

How Involved Is The Breast Augmentation Procedure?

Breast augmentation requires general anesthesia and usually takes about one hour. First, Dr. Schwartz will create incisions around the nipple and/or areola, or under the breast. Through this incision, the breast implant is placed behind the muscle. Finally, sutures are used to hold the incision lines closed.

Is Breast Augmentation Right For Me?

If you’ve always wished that your breasts were larger or felt that they were too small for the rest of your frame, breast augmentation may be right for you. Other women seeking a boob job have lost some of their natural breast volume as a result of aging or pregnancy and are looking to restore their previous breast size through the use of implants. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and have reached adulthood.Teenagers are advised to wait to consider surgery, as their breasts may still be growing.

How Long Is The Recovery After Breast Implants?

Most women who undergo a boob job take between one to two weeks away from work. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for up to six weeks. During the recovery period, common side effects include tenderness, soreness, swelling and bruising. A surgical bra is worn to support the new contours of the breasts for several weeks.

How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?

The exact price of your breast implants will depend on the material and size of breast implant used, along with other considerations related to your surgical plan. Financing is available.
