For women whose breasts are smaller than they would prefer, breast augmentation (breast enlargement) offers an opportunity to add balance and symmetry to their figures. Breast augmentation at our San Francisco center is customized for each patient. With breast augmentation, many women find that they feel more beautiful, more feminine, and more confident about their appearances.
Dr. Chow has performed hundreds of breast augmentation procedures, helping many women improve their self-confidence and achieve the appearance they desire. After your in-depth consultation with Dr. Chow, in which your desires and expectations will be fully addressed, Dr. Chow will recommend the most appropriate breast enlargement technique for you. Several different state-of-the-art breast augmentation techniques are used at our San Francisco office.
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
The breast augmentation procedure begins with an incision made around the areola, under the arm, or under the breast. Through this incision, Dr. Chow can place a customized implant either beneath or above the pectoral muscles. Because Dr. Chow has mastered the art of the subtle incision, patients will benefit from fuller, more shapely breasts with minimal visible scarring. Breast augmentation is extremely safe and involves a very tolerable recovery period.
The choice of implant material (saline, silicone, or other) is another matter for you and Dr. Chow to discuss at length; he will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each material and what that means for you. He will also help you understand your options with regard to breast implant size and shape to help you develop reasonable expectations. Additionally, because Dr. Chow tailors the breast augmentation procedure to meet the needs of each patient, he will spend time during the initial consultation reviewing your personal appearance goals with you to develop an individualized treatment plan.Dr. Albert Chow and his staff look forward to helping you explore your treatment options.
