Breast Augmentation

Small, poorly defined breasts can impact the balance of your body’s proportions as well as your confidence. As the most popular cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation provides hundreds of thousands of women with beautiful, spectacular results every year. Women choose breast augmentation to increase the size of their breasts, enhance their cleavage, and reshape undefined breasts. If you lack satisfaction and confidence in your appearance because of your small breasts, then breast augmentation surgery may be the right choice for you.

Breast Augmentation Techniques

Breast augmentation involves the insertion of implants into a pocket that has been created under the breast tissue to add volume and fullness to your breasts.

Dr. Pollack uses either a periareolar incision (around the nipple) or inframammary incision (along the lower breast crease) to insert the implant.

• These incision techniques result in minimal scarring and allow for the most accurate placement of your implants for more consistent results.

Dr. Pollack will usually place implants in pockets that have been created under the muscle because this provides the most natural-looking breasts.

However, some patients prefer to have their implants placed over the pectoral muscle and under the glandular tissue to achieve their aesthetic desires.

Dr. Pollack expertly dissects the breast pocket to ensure results with the best symmetry, shape, and cleavage.

Silicone

• A silicone shell filled with a cohesive silicone gel
• FDA approved for women 22 years or older
• Provides a more natural looking and feeling breast
• Less prone to visible ripples or wrinkles
• Implant ruptures or leaks are not as easily detectable

Saline

• A silicone shell filled with a saltwater solution
• FDA approved for women 18 years or older
• Utilizes a smaller incision since it is inserted empty and filled in the pocket
• Implant ruptures are more readily identifiable
• Saline implants are more prone to visible deformities like wrinkling

Prepare for Your Surgery

Before your surgery, you should have a clear idea of what you wish to achieve through your breast augmentation. During your consultation, you and Dr. Pollack will discuss your aesthetic goals. Dr. Pollack offers 3-D imaging which allows you to view your own torso with different sizes and shapes of implants. This will help you decide whether you desire more modest, natural-appearing breasts or large, attention-grabbing breasts. It is important to know your aesthetic goals so both you and Dr. Pollack understand what to expect for your surgery to ensure results that meet your expectations.
