Breast augmentation can enhance both the appearance of your breasts and your self-confidence. Also, breast augmentation is used to achieve a more proportionate figure, restore lost volume resulting from age, weight loss or pregnancies, and balance asymmetrical breasts. Breast augmentation surgery, which refers to the enlargement of the female breast by insertion of either silicone or saline implants, results in fuller, firmer breasts to complement your natural body proportions.

Dr. Wetherington offers three types of breast implant devices: silicone gel, traditional saline, and a new, FDA-approved alternative known as the Ideal implant. This dual compartment, baffled implant is filled with saline during surgery and is softer in texture than a traditional saline device.
The procedure is performed in the operative suite at Horizons Plastic Surgery, using a general anesthetic technique specifically designed for outpatient cosmetic surgery. The procedure takes about 90 minutes and, after a brief recovery, you will be ready for discharge. Most patients return to work in seven to 10 days and may resume full exercise in four to six weeks.
Breast augmentation is a relatively safe and reliable procedure that enjoys widespread popularity with women of all ages.
