Undergoing breast enhancement surgery at our practice serving South Lake Tahoe can greatly enhance your overall appearance, enhancing your curves and creating a more appealing figure. With that in mind, the surgeries can seem rather complicated for those unfamiliar with them. We’d like to take this opportunity to answer some of the most common questions we get about breast enhancement surgery.

What Is Breast Enhancement Surgery?

Breast enhancement surgery is a broad term that refers to any cosmetic surgery that enhances the size, shape, or contours of the breasts. At our practice serving South Lake Tahoe, we use the phrase “breast enhancement” to refer to breast augmentation surgery, breast lift surgery, or breast reduction surgery.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is also known as breast enlargement surgery. This surgery is performed in order to increase the size and enhance the volume of the breasts. This is accomplished through the use of breast implants.

Who is a Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation Surgery?

The best candidates for breast enlargement surgery are those who are in good general health and have realistic expectations about what the surgery can achieve. These patients should have arrived at the decision to undergo surgery on their own and should not be coerced into surgery by another person.

During your consultation with Dr. Lawrence Foster, he will determine if South Lake Tahoe breast enlargement is the best option for your needs or if another breast enhancement option may be better.

How Is Breast Augmentation Performed?

Basically, the breast augmentation surgery procedure involves the placement of breast implants into the breast pocket through an incision. The position and placement of the breast implants and the incision technique used during surgery will vary from patient to patient. Afterwards, patients will need to rest and refrain from physical activity while recovering from breast augmentation surgery.

Are Bigger Breast Implants Better?

The answer to this is no. Bigger is not always better with breast augmentation or breast implants. There are many types of breast implants, and that does not just mean their composition or size. Dr. Foster will take these numerous factors into account when helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Are Silicone Breast Implants Better Than Saline Breast Implants?

Not necessarily. There are various pros and cons to both kinds breast implants, though one is not necessarily better than the other. Saline breast implants do tend to look and feel more like natural breasts, though the results achieved with saline breast implants are quite good as well.

The benefits of breast augmentation surgery include improved appearance, better self-esteem, and enhanced body contour.
