Breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) is a cosmetic surgery procedure that involves using breast implants to enhance the size and shape of breasts. It can also restore breast volume after weight reduction or pregnancy. Breast augmentation is one of the most common types of cosmetic surgery among women in the U.S.
Breast augmentation surgery may help to:
- Enhance the appearance of your breasts
- Make up for a change in your breast size after weight loss or pregnancy
- Correct for asymmetry in breast size
- Improve your self-image and self-confidence
Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques
We also offer endoscopic breast augmentation surgery for certain patients who are a good fit for the procedure. This surgery involves fewer incisions and a decreased risk of scarring.
Consultation and Evaluation
The first step in your treatment at UVM Medical Center is an initial cosmetic surgery consultation and medical evaluation. During this time, we will discuss your goals and concerns and determine if you are a suitable candidate for plastic surgery.
