Breast Augmentation Consultation

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgical procedures. Whether due to lack of adequate development, loss of volume due to pregnancy, or the natural aging process a breast augmentation procedure can enhance or restore a woman’s breast volume and shape.

Considerations when choosing Implants:

  • Implant Size: Dr. Antimarino takes into consideration many important elements when choosing an implant such as a patient’s activity level, height, weight and body type. There are many different sizes and shapes of implants that may be used to best enhance a woman to reach her desired outcome. Furthermore, a well-proportioned breast will give balance and create curves that enhance a woman’s shape.
  • Implants: There are two main types of implants available. These include silicone and saline. A consultation with Dr. Antimarino will best provide you with necessary information to determine the correct implant for you and ultimately increase your comfort level with the procedure.
  • Position: Implants can be placed above and below the muscle. Dr. Antimarino prefers the sub-muscular placement of the implant as it has proven to have less complications and generally improved surveillance for breast cancer in this position.
