Why a breast implant?

Breast implants are the solution to the problem of small breasts.

Women’s breasts may have been small since the end of puberty, or may have become so as a result of weight loss or breast-feeding.

The breast implant method

The only natural, effective and safe way to obtain or regain fuller breasts is to place breast implants behind the pectoralis major muscle, using the double-plane technique.

To achieve a natural result, the implant is placed behind the muscle in the décolleté and behind the mammary gland under the nipple.

Without exception, all patients experience a major boost in confidence after this procedure.

Surgery lasts an average of 90 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia in a clinic.

Contact your plastic surgeon

To achieve the best results after breast augmentation surgery, careful planning and reasonable expectations are necessary. Ask your surgeon about his or her experience in performing breast implant surgery, the surgical procedure and the ways the implant may affect your life.

Tell your surgeon about previous surgical procedures and your body’s reaction to them. Discuss whether the surgeries resulted in more scar tissue than expected. Discuss your expectations too. These discussions will help you and the surgeon make decisions that achieve the desired appearance, including decisions about the location and size of the incision, and the size and texture of the implant.

If you are interested in a breast implant, please contact Dr. Elias for personalized advice.
