Dr. Kaye Riolo understands the concerns of women considering breast augmentation. At her Fresno, California practice, the board-certified plastic surgeon sees patients who simply desire an increase in the size of their breasts. Some women want to correct signs of aging, the effects of breastfeeding, or congenital irregularities in the shape. Others want to balance the overall proportions of their bodies better.
You are a good candidate for breast augmentation if you have always felt that your breasts are too small or if your breasts have changed after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast augmentation can:
- Give you larger, fuller breasts
- Improve the overall proportions of your body, and
- Correct minor sagging or ptosis of your breasts.
Breast augmentation surgery can also help correct asymmetrical breasts or breasts that have become smaller or “deflated” as you age.
When you undergo breast augmentation, implants are behind your breast tissue or under your chest muscle. Implants can either be saline or silicone are inserted after we’ve administered a local anesthetic.
Though most patients have successful procedures with no harmful effects, some complications can occur. These include chronic breast pain or numbness and implant breakage or leakage. If you’d like to learn more, we can address any concerns or questions during our consultation.
