What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that makes your breasts larger while improving their overall shape and appearance as well. The procedure involves placing saline or silicone breast implants within the breasts.

What makes someone a good candidate?

Candidates for breast augmentation may be interested in addressing:

  • Small breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Lack of cleavage
  • Flat-chested profile
  • Disappointment with the look of your chest in clothes and nude

There are also health history factors we will assess as part of determining your candidacy. You need to be in generally good overall health, and Dr. Perez will review your medical history for any factors that would increase your risk of complications.

We'll also make sure you know what to expect from the results. Having realistic expectations is an important part of candidacy and your satisfaction with what the procedure can achieve.

How much does the procedure cost?

The cost is pretty variable from surgeon to surgeon, and from region to region. We provide you with a complete estimate of the cost for your procedure at the time of the consultation, after you and Dr. Perez have a chance to discuss all aspects of your surgery.

Is financing available?

Dr. Perez wants his patients to be able to access the breast augmentation procedures they've been dreaming about. In addition to accepting major credit cards, checks, money orders and cashier's checks, our office also accepts financing plans through CareCredit and Prosper Healthcare Lending, which you can apply for online.

Is it safe?

Like all surgical procedures, breast enhancement comes with the risks of certain complications. Dr. Perez takes every precaution in minimizing risks. Our state-of-the-art practice contains all the equipment and protocols to ensure our patients' safety. We'll also make sure you are fully aware of any and all risks so that you can make an informed decision.

How do I choose a breast implant size?

Dr. Perez will guide you through the process of choosing a breast implant size. During a consultation, you can place breast implant sizers – which look just like an implant – under your clothes to get an idea of size. Some women want a modest increase, others a more dramatic boost, and others somewhere in between. Rely on Dr. Perez for help with this decision.

Is saline or silicone a better implant?

Both saline and silicone breast implants are good options. Silicone implants have an optimally natural look and feel because of the silicone gel that fills them, and yet some women prefer saline options. Dr. Perez will help you choose.

Am I too old for breast augmentation?

There is no age limit for breast augmentation. While the majority of patients are women in their 30s, there are also many patients in their 20s, 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond! The key is to make sure your body is in good health to undergo the procedure, and that breast augmentation fits what you are trying to achieve.

Can I have augmentation if I still plan to have more kids?

Certainly! Many women go on to have more children after breast augmentation. It is possible that the body changes associated with pregnancy will affect your augmentation results, so you may need to consider a breast lift to rejuvenate your breasts, but your enlargement will not affect your pregnancy in any way.
