Breast Augmentation San Diego
San Diego Breast Augmentation
For some, breast augmentation is a doorway to enhance self-image and confidence. For others, it can be a form of reconstruction after surgery or other conditions related to the breast. There are multiple procedures available to you and we, based on your personal breast concerns, can help you with the right choice.
Breast augmentation surgery is done by using silicone or saline implants, and sometimes even by fat transfer, to help women trying to enhance, or restore, balance to their bodies. Often times women lose the fullness they once had either due to age, giving birth, or weight fluctuations. Because of this, a breast lift or a mommy makeover might be done in combination with a breast augmentation. In other situations, a woman may have always had smaller breasts, or feels self-conscious in a swimsuit or low-cut top, and now wishes to enlarge them.
There are a host of ways that a breast augmentation can be performed so as to minimize the incision and give you a more balanced look. In most instances, implants or fat are placed directly under the breast tissue in a pocket made by the surgeon. There are multiple incision placements as well, for example under the breast or around the areola.
Your Initial Breast Augmentation Consultation
Your initial consultation is the time to discuss your personal cosmetic goals. Dr. Sadrian will assess your situation, go over your options, and answer any questions you may have. He will ask you about your medical history, including family history, he will take measurements and photograph the current state of your breasts. A mammogram is required for any planned breast procedure, if you know for sure you are moving forward with a breast augmentation, breast lift, or any other breast procedure, and have not had a mammogram in the last year, you might want to schedule an appointment. The results of the mammogram are not required at your initial consultation.
