Suitable candidates for breast augmentation are over the age of 18 and in generally good health, physically and mentally. It is important for candidates to have realistic expectations of the procedure and not feel pressured into the surgery by anyone else. Dr. Passaretti works with every patient individually to understand their specific goals and needs regarding the procedure. As a knowledgeable cosmetic surgeon, he can answer all questions and best determine whether you are a good candidate for breast augmentation during a personal consultation at our practice.
Your particular breast augmentation procedure will be based on a treatment plan you develop with Dr. Passaretti. This plan outlines the type of implant used, incision location, and method of placement. Depending on Dr. Passaretti’s advisement, the incision may be made in the lower crease of the breast, the areola, the belly button, or the armpit. The implant itself is placed under either the breast tissue or the breast muscle. Dr. Passaretti’s experience and surgical training, as well as the patient’s anatomy and preferences, contribute significantly to these decisions.

Each type of breast implant presents its own set of risks and benefits. The type of breast implant used is based on a combination of the patient’s preferences, her aesthetic goals, and Dr. Passaretti’s expert opinion. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution and can be customized in both shape and size to meet the patient’s specifications. Saline implants are very safe; in the rare event that the implant ruptures or leaks, the body can easily absorb the saline. Silicone implants are filled with silicone gel that closely mimics breast tissue, making silicone implants look and feel extremely natural.
Breast augmentation can dramatically improve the way women feel about the size and shape of their breasts. Implants can produce virtually any result that a patient desires- as they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, the possibilities are vast. This highly individualized procedure allows patients to achieve their personal cosmetic goals. Because of Dr. Passaretti’s expertise, post-procedural scarring is minimal and usually in an inconspicuous location. Patients are able to breast feed, maintain normal nipple sensitivity, and have regular mammograms. Implants typically last for many years.
