Breast augmentation has helped women all over the world enhance the size of their breasts and feel more confident about their appearance. It remains one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Cohen, understands that each woman’s body is unique and that every individual will have personal cosmetic goals. With this procedure, he can give the breasts a more balanced and proportionate shape and size with results that look beautiful and natural.
Dr. Cohen customizes each breast augmentation procedure to address the unique cosmetic concerns of the patient. Women who choose to undergo breast augmentation with implants often seek to:
Breast augmentation can be particularly beneficial for women who have had one or more children and have experienced a loss of volume due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or breastfeeding. Some women may opt to incorporate breast augmentation into a comprehensive Mommy Makeover plan for a more complete body rejuvenation.
Most women who choose breast augmentation desire to increase the size of their breasts, improve the shape of their breasts, or achieve a more balanced, proportionate figure. Those who want to elevate the position of their breasts or reduce sagging may be better suited for a breast lift. Depending upon the personal goals of the patient, Dr. Cohen may recommend combining these two procedures for a breast augmentation with lift.
Prospective patients must be at least 18 years of age for saline breast implants and over 21 years of age for silicone implants. There is no age limit for breast augmentation, but patients must be in good overall health to be eligible. Those with certain pre-existing medical conditions or patients who smoke tobacco products have an increased risk for post-operative complications and may not be good candidates for breast augmentation. Candidates should maintain realistic expectations in regard to what breast augmentation can accomplish. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation is to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon.
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.

Breast implants can enhance the contours of the breasts, add or replenish lost volume, and/or improve symmetry between the breasts. Oftentimes, women with smaller breasts can achieve a more proportionate silhouette with breast implants. There are two main types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Each type of breast implant has unique benefits and can be sized according to the patient’s desires. There is no one “best” option for all patients. Breast implants can also be placed over or under the muscle, depending upon the patient’s goals. Finally, the type of incision used to place the implants plays a role in how the final results will appear.
