Breast Augmentation Palo Alto
A woman may decide to choose breast augmentation for several different reasons. Some of the reasons that an individual might pursue breast enhancement surgery include increasing the size of the breast, improving the shape and contour of the breast, replace volume loss as the result of aging, weight loss or pregnancy, or to create better balance between breasts that are different in size. In some cases, breast augmentation may be combined with a breast lift (mastopexy) to achieve an improved shape.
The current most reliable way to obtain an increase in the size of the breast involves the placement of an implant. Several options exist for the incision to place the breast implant. These include an incision in the armpit, around the areola (the darker skin around the nipple), or in a fold underneath the breast. The implant can be placed either above or below the pectoralis major muscle. Implant options include either saline (salt-water) or silicone implants with a smooth or textured surface. In some patients a breast lift may be recommended to obtain the optimal result.
