Are You Considering Breast Augmentation?

Breast AugmentationFeeling more “normal.” Feeling more confident. Enhancing self-esteem. These are just a few of the reasons breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic procedure in the world for women. Since 1961, when the first of the silicone breast implants were created, women have flocked to cosmetic surgeons to request this procedure.

  • Basic silicone implants have changed dramatically since the early days and were approved for general use by the FDA in November 2006; they are pre-filled by the manufacturer. As another choice in fill material, saline implants are filled with sterile injectable 0.9% saline at the time of surgery. Dr. Dunkley offers both silicone and saline implants and as each patient is unique, the pros and cons of each implant material will be carefully discussed with you to ensure that you make the correct choice for your body.
  • Dunkley also offers Fat Transfer Augmentation using the patient’s own fat. Unwanted fat is removed through liposuction from other areas of the body such as the abdomen or buttocks. The harvested fat is filtered and injected into the breasts to make them fuller.
  • In addition to the choice of implant materials, you can choose the shape or contour of your implant – either round, the most common shape in the U.S. – or contoured (“tear drop” shaped), most often used in breast reconstruction following tissue expansion and in thinner patients.
  • Other augmentation considerations are the placement of the incisions and choosing the correct implant size.

Keep in mind that augmentation surgery is major surgery, on your body. It is something to do for yourself – not for your partner. Breast implants can be life-changing and the decision to undergo this surgery is one of the most important decisions you will make.
