For women who want larger, fuller breasts, breast implants are a safe, highly successful way to get the breast size they’ve always wanted. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the top cosmetic surgery performed today. This comes as no surprise to me because whether it’s increasing a woman’s breast size from an A cup to a C, or a B cup to a D, breast implant surgery is the most common plastic surgery procedure I perform in my practice.

For my patients who choose to have breast implants, it can be a wonderful turning point in their lives, boosting their self-esteem, body image and sexual satisfaction, and I am pleased that I can help achieve these positive outcomes for them. Very often after performing breast augmentation surgery, I actually hear from my patients, “I love my new breasts!” For more information on breast augmentation, download our free fact sheet!
Why do women choose to have breast implants? It’s not always for bigger breasts.
There are many reasons women come to me wanting breast augmentation, beyond wanting a bigger cup size, including:
- Breasts that never developed, a condition called micromastia.
- Asymmetrical breasts that don't match in some way, either in size or shape. One breast might be a D cup, while the other is a B. Or there might be a half-cup difference between the two breasts.
- To reverse the effects of aging and breastfeeding.
I offer three types of breast implants, all of them safe
- Silicone breast implants—filled with silicone gel.
- Saline breast implants—filled with saline (sterile saltwater).
- Natrelle® gummy breast implants—filled with silicone gel. Choose from five profiles (low to extra full), four degrees of fullness (minimal to maximum) and three levels of cohesivity (gumminess).
Most women—and most plastic surgeons, myself included—prefer the look and feel of silicone implants rather than saline. Silicone implants are generally considered to look and feel more like real breast tissue, while saline implants are more prone to cause rippling of the skin. Women are also reporting high satisfaction rates with the new gummy versions because they can choose the size and shape of their implants for a more customized, unique look.
For my patients, I always take into consideration:
- your body type
- your age
- the current size of your breasts
- the breast size you would like to be
How much does breast augmentation cost?
One of the first questions my patients ask me when they’re considering getting breast augmentation is how much it will cost. My answer is that there is no one standard price. Every woman’s breasts are unique, and the results she is seeking from breast augmentation surgery are specific to her. That’s why I determine the exact cost of the procedure after I have met with the patient, evaluated her breasts and body type, overall physical condition and her personal goals and expectations. Then together, we will decide what type of procedure will achieve the best possible results. If you are a good candidate for breast augmentation without a breast lift or other surgery, you may qualify for our special pricing. For further pricing details, please contact me.

If you already have breast implants, please come see me
If it has been a few years (or more) since your breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to get them checked. I highly recommend doing this once a year. Please make an appointment to come in and see me so I can check for any problems.
