Women who have small and/or asymmetrical breasts often seek to attain a more feminine physique. In order to achieve a fuller bust, many of these individuals turn to breast augmentation. In San Jose, a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon can perform this procedure to enhance the size and/or shape of the patient’s breasts.

Breast Enlargement Surgery

Medically termed “augmentation mammaplasty,” this procedure is designed to reshape the breasts and provide a fuller contour. Your San Jose plastic surgeon can place either saline or silicone gel filled breast implants above or beneath the chest muscle. Incision can be made under the breast, around the nipple, in the armpit, or through the belly button. Based on your desired outcome, the most beneficial technique will be used.

In addition to breast enhancement, your surgeon may perform breast lift surgery if there is significant sagging present. This is often caused by pregnancy and/or aging; the breasts lose volume and the skin lacks elasticity. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are also often combined in what is commonly termed a “Mommy Makeover” to help women regain their pre-pregnancy shape. The option to combine these procedures will be discussed during your consultation.

Also, you may get an idea of potential results by viewing before and after breast implant photos.

Cost of Breast Augmentation

The average cost of breast surgery in San Jose is $7,200. However, be sure to note that this does not include anesthesia or surgery center fees. A more accurate estimate of your final cost can be discussed at your appointment.
