Palo Alto Area Doctors

Women who have small and/or asymmetrical breasts often seek the help of a qualified breast augmentation, or “augmentation mammoplasty” specialist. This breast contouring procedure can provide a fuller, shapelier appearance with the use of breast implants.

Breast Augmentation Surgery

During a consultation, you will be thoroughly examined, discuss the procedure options, and your desired results. Your Palo Alto plastic surgeon will then determine if this procedure is the most beneficial to meet your needs.

Breast implant surgery is performed though incisions made around the areola, in the breast crease, in the armpit, or through the belly button. Either saline or silicone gel filled breast implants will be placed above or beneath the chest muscle to add volume to the breasts. Based on your anatomy and the surgeon’s recommendation, the most appropriate technique and implant type will be chosen.

After your procedure, you will need to wear a supportive bra to help the breasts adjust to their new shape and contour. Be sure to follow instructions provided by our physician to allow for proper healing and prevent complications or infection. Results typically last 10 years; natural aging may cause the breasts to gradually lose some elasticity, at which point you may consider a secondary procedure.

In addition to breast enlargement, you may also inquire about breast lift surgery if you are experiencing sagging and loss of volume. Your Palo Also breast augmentation surgeon can provide further information regarding these procedures. Before and after breast surgery photos may also be viewed in order to get an idea of potential results.

Cost of Breast Enhancement

The average cost of this procedure in the Palo Alto area is $7,700. However, please note that this does not include anesthesia or surgery center fees. Medications prescribed are also a part of the final cost, all of which can be discussed during an initial consultation.  You may obtain a more accurate estimate of your final cost at this time.
