Breast augmentation, sometimes referred to as a “boob job”, is the most common type of cosmetic surgery performed. During a breast augmentation, Nathan Eberle, M.D., D.D.S., F.A.C.S. insert silicone or saline breast implants in an effort to increase a woman’s bust by one or more cup sizes. Thousands of women in Weston and the surrounding area have boosted their breast size via a breast augmentation performed at the Weston Center for Plastic Surgery.
WHAT IS A BREAST AUGMENTATION?
A breast augmentation is a type of cosmetic surgery that enhances the size of a woman’s breasts through the use of implants. These implants are inserted into pockets behind the chest muscle or on top of the chest wall, providing greater volume and a more uplifted appearance.
BENEFITS OF BREAST AUGMENTATION
Women who choose a breast augmentation often do so to improve their self-esteem. Many ladies are self-conscious about their small breasts or find that the aging process, pregnancy or weight loss has resulted in a loss in volume. A breast augmentation can help these women regain their self-confidence and/or restore the figure they once had when they were younger.
TRANSAXILLARY BREAST AUGMENTATION
Just because women want larger breasts does not mean they desire scars around the areola. A transaxillary breast augmentation involves making incisions in the armpit area. Through this incision, a surgeon can carefully insert the implant without causing too much disturbance to natural breast tissue.
The best part about a transaxillary breast augmentation is that scarring is in the armpit. As such, it will be virtually impossible for anyone to tell that a breast augmentation has taken place.
