Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic procedures. It has the ability to dramatically alter a woman’s appearance and self-image. Women seek breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. Some are self-conscious wearing certain clothing, such as swimsuits or form-fitting tops. Others seek augmentation to become more proportional to the rest of their bodies. Some have asymmetry between the two breasts. For others, the effects of pregnancy and breast-feeding have altered breast size. Some patients simply want to be fuller on top.
Whatever your reasons, Dr. Mitchell can help you decide if a breast augmentation is right for you. Dr. Mitchell will meet with you for a free, private consultation. Multiple factors will be considered to determine what is best for you. This includes what type of implant you prefer (i.e., silicone or saline), where the implant should be placed (i.e., above or below the pectoralis muscle), and what incision should be used to place the implant (i.e., around the areola, within the axilla, or below the breast in the inframammary crease). Each patient is unique, and Dr. Mitchell will help you decide what is appropriate for you.

A breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure. All sutures are placed internally to avoid the need for painful suture removal. Dr. Mitchell will see you one to two days after the procedure in his office. Some mild bruising and swelling may occur, however, and this usually resolves in a few weeks. Recovery is excellent, with most women returning to their normal activities in a week or two.
Dr. Mitchell is proud to offer both saline and FDA-approved silicone implants. Dr. Mitchell is certified by both the Mentor and Allergan companies, the two makers of breast implants within the United States.
Dr. Mitchell will discuss all potential risks associated with breast augmentation with you in detail during your consultation.
