Millions of cosmetic treatments are carried out every year, but breast augmentation remains the single most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the United States. During a breast augmentation, board-certified plastic surgeon Nathan Eberle, M.D., D.D.S. utilize either saline or silicone implants to improve the cup size of one or both breasts. Thousands of women throughout Plantation and the surrounding communities enjoy fuller breasts because of this amazing cosmetic procedure.
WHAT IS BREAST AUGMENTATION?
Unlike a breast lift that alters the position of a woman’s breasts, breast augmentations increase the actual size of each breast. This can be achieved by inserting silicone of saline implants behind the soft tissue so that the breasts appear fuller.
BENEFITS OF BREAST AUGMENTATION
Many women grow up feeling unhappy with their appearance due to naturally small breasts. Others lose fatty tissue because of hormonal changes, certain forms of medication, breastfeeding, pregnancies or other medical conditions. Breast augmentation procedures address all of these cosmetic issues so a patient can once again feel confident in their own skin.
TRANSAXILLARY BREAST AUGMENTATION
This is a type of breast augmentation procedure that is carried out through the armpit.
Dr. Eberle of the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery is able to offer transaxillary breast augmentations. Unlike traditional breast augmentations that require an incision along the nipples, the incisions are made within the armpits. After the incisions are made, Dr. Eberle can then place the implants behind the natural breasts just as if the incisions were closer to the breast tissue. This minimizes the amount of skin, muscle, and fat that must be disturbed.
The vast majority of women who have transaxillary breast augmentation procedures carried out claim their friends and loved ones never see the scars or realize that surgery has taken place. This makes it an ideal choice for anyone who would like to enhance their natural feminine contours. Dr. Eberle can carefully position each scar so that it blends into the creases of a patient’s armpit and is difficult to detect.
