The Evolution of Breast Augmentation and what you need to know

Did you know that the first breast implant surgery was performed in 1962? Breast augmentation, aka “boob job” certainly has come a long way since then!

Does Breast Augmentation include other breast surgeries?

Today breast augmentation surgery covers a variety of procedures. Whether it is a breast lift, a reduction, an augmentation, or a reconstruction, my goal is to make women comfortable, happy, and even thrilled with their new breasts.

Iam from the Washington D.C. area, how do I know what the best size is for my body?

Gone are the days of cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all augmentation. Every woman in the Baltimore area and across the world, is unique in anatomy, body image, and goals, which is why it is so important to work with a highly-qualified, educated and experienced plastic surgeon. I cannot stress that enough. Your breasts and overall health are too important to put into the hands of a bargain basement “surgeon.”

Would I need to travel to Towson or Bel Air for a consultation at your practice?

So let’s talk about breast augmentation! Your journey begins with a consultation in my Baltimore area office. We’ll discuss your goals, dreams and desires for your new appearance. As I mentioned, breast implants have grown more sophisticated and safer, so you can put any rumors you have heard to rest. Some of your options include:

  • Saline, silicone gel and “gummy bear” implants
  • Different shapes of implants such as round and teardrop
  • Two placement options: Above or below the muscle
  • Different choices for incision location: Under the breast where it meets the chest wall, or at the edge of the areola

With more breast implants to choose from, combined with advanced techniques to help achieve the shape and symmetry you seek, I can help you achieve the silhouette you have always wanted. Contact us today to schedule you consultation for Breast Implants in the Baltimore area.
