Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States, with 286,254 procedures performed in 2015. That's an increase of 35% from the year 2000.

When it comes to breast enhancement, patients often feel confused or overwhelmed when selecting an implant or researching different surgical techniques. The final result of any breast augmentation procedure is determined by a series of choices that the patient (with the counsel of their surgeon) will make.

Size: Breast implant size is one of the most important characteristics that determine the end result of a breast augmentation procedure. Breast implant size is measured in ccs, typically from 200cc to 600cc. Implant size choices usually come down to a combination of the patient's anatomy and the degree of naturalness of the desired final result.


Many women want an enhanced appearance without the look of being overly (unnaturally) large. To achieve this result it's very important for an experienced plastic surgeon to educate the patient on how each implant size will alter their unique physique. One of the best ways to accomplish this is for the patient to try on different implant sizers and see how each size will look. Additionally, patients should ask to view various before and after images of previous augmentation patients with a similar body frame.
