For women, the breasts are very much linked to a sense of self. BREAST AUGMENTATION, utilizing FDA-approved saline and silicone implants, is a safe and enduring means of enhancing the appearance of undersized or asymmetrical breasts.
Today, women have many choices between saline or silicone implants. The implant can be placed above or below the pectoral muscles, depending on the position of the patient’s breast. Implants are inserted through minimal, inconspicuous incisions. The route of insertion will depend on the shape of the patient’s breast and how large an implant she has chosen. These decisions are discussed in detail during a thorough pre-operative consultation considering lifestyle, goals, personal preferences, as well as Dr. Wolf’s recommendations and surgical judgment. The ultimate goal is to achieve natural looking breasts.
Breast surgery is performed under general anesthesia at an out-patient surgery center or hospital. Although BREAST AUGMENTATION surgery offers immediate results, it will take several weeks or months, depending on the patient for swelling to resolve and for the breast implants to settle into position. The social downtime for this procedure varies from patient to patient.
