Breast augmentation can give the breasts a more balanced and proportionate shape and size with results that look beautiful and natural. This procedure has helped women all over the world enhance the size of their breasts and feel more confident about their appearance. Women who choose to undergo breast augmentation with implants often seek to:
- Increase breast volume
- Improve symmetry between the breasts
- Restore a more youthful shape to the breasts
- Rejuvenate the breasts after pregnancy and breast-feeding
Plastic surgeon Andrew Cohen, MD understands that each woman’s body is unique and that every individual will have personal cosmetic goals. However, variables such as breast implant type, size, volume, shape, and surgical technique can seem overwhelming at first. As a result, Dr. Cohen uses the preliminary consultations as a time to get to know you, understand your expectations, and help you make educated decisions about your surgery. Before the day of your breast augmentation, Dr. Cohen will design a custom-tailored surgical approach that can best achieve results that look and feel natural while providing the aesthetic outcome you desire.
