Breast augmentation surgery involves using breast implants, to increase the size of your breasts or restore breast volume that has been lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Breast augmentation is clinically referred to as augmentation mammoplasty.
Breast augmentation can increase fullness and projection of your breasts, improve the balance of your figure, enhance your self-image, improve self-confidence sexual functioning. Breast implants may also be used for breast reconstruction after mastectomy or injury. Dr. Teshima performs the breast augmentation procedure using evidence based medicine and the latest techniques to reduce the risk of capsular contracture, infection, and long term complications.
Breast augmentation is a very personal procedure and you should do it for yourself, not for someone else. You may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery if you are physically healthy, have realistic expectations, your breasts are fully developed, you are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small, you are dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging, you are unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing “empty”, your breasts are asymmetrical, or one or both breasts failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape.
