Are you unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts? Dr. Basile has several options to help you achieve natural looking, or voluminous breasts to help you become more confident.
About Breast Augmentation
Breast Augmentation is a procedure that enhances your breasts, improves their shape and symmetry and adds overall fullness. Breast Augmentation continues to lead the industry as one of the most-performed procedures in the United States.
Am I a good candidate?
If you are dissatisfied with the current shape or volume of your breasts or asymmetry, you may be a good candidate for a Breast Augmentation procedure. You must have fully developed breasts in order to qualify for this procedure, therefore candidates must be 18 years old or 22 years old for silicone implants.
Real Patient Results
How is a Breast Augmentation procedure performed?
In understanding Breast Augmentation, you should know of the options available to you regarding type of augment and incision options. If you prefer implants, you have two options:
Saline implants are FDA-approved and provide a firm structure for the breasts. These implants are filled with sterile saltwater, therefore, they are harmless in the case of a rupture or leak.
Silicone implants are also FDA-approved. They are filled with a silicone gel which provides a more natural fatty feel similar to real breasts. Candidates interested in silicone implants must be cautious as ruptures can be more damaging to the body than a saline implant.
With implants, your incision can be periareolar, around the nipple; inframammary, underneath the crease of the breast; or transaxillary, underneath the armpit. Although you may have your preference of location, it is important to note that Dr. Basile may have a suggestion based on the type of implant and your goal in size. Depending on the type of implant and your body type, Dr. Basile will either place it in a pocket over or under the pectoral muscle.
If you prefer another form of enhancement, Dr. Basile also offers Fat Transfer augmentation which uses Liposuction to transfer your own body’s fat to your breasts.
Results and Recovery
Post-procedure, you will be given specific instructions from Dr. Basile on how to properly recover. To assist in reducing pain, he will prescribe you medication to ensure optimum comfort. You must refrain from physical activity for one week post-surgery and slowly resume your normal schedule after the seven days. However, recovery time will vary depending on your type of breast augment and if you choose implants, placement of the implant.
