Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation refers to surgery done to increase the size of the breasts and enhance their shape. Many women also opt for augmentation to achieve the figure they want.  According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation was the second most common plastic surgical procedure in 2022, with 298,568 cases being performed.

Selecting the right implants can be daunting, with choices ranging from silicone, saline, to “gummy bear” breast implants. A proficient surgeon not only conducts the procedure but also assists patients in comprehending the available options and the respective benefits and risks associated with each.

Breast augmentation may:

  • Increase the fullness of the breasts
  • Restore your breast appearance after breast cancer treatment
  • Improve the balance and proportions between the breast and hip contours
  • Improve self-confidence

Besides breast augmentation, Dr. Gear also performs other forms of breast surgery such as reduction and a breast lift. All these procedures aim to help each patient achieve an aesthetically pleasing shape.
