The breast enhancement process starts, as with all cosmetic procedures, with a consultation. During your consultation your plastic surgeon will ask you about your medical history, your breast enhancement goals and your questions and concerns. It’s important to be as honest as possible. Feel free to write down any questions you want to ask beforehand so that you don’t forget. There are a number of decisions to make in the enhancement process from implant type to size, shape, texture, and placement. The most important, however, is choosing the right plastic surgeon.

The procedure itself is performed under anesthesia. Breast augmentation incisions may be made either around the areola, in the crease under the breast, or in the armpit depending on the size and type of implant used, as well as patient and plastic surgeon preference. Next, the saline or silicone implant is placed either under the pectoral muscle or over the pectoral muscle. Do you know which you may prefer? Finally, the incisions are closed and the you’ll be bandaged.
