Breast Augmentation Boston MA
When women feel their breasts are either disproportionally small for their figure, are unhappy with the shape, have lost volume due to weight loss or breastfeeding, or simply would like to have larger breasts, breast augmentation can fuel a boost in self-confidence and a serious change in body image.
Dr. Lin performs breast augmentation with either saline or silicone implants. There is a great deal of give and take between surgeon and patient as there are many decisions to make: implant type, implant size (measured in CCs of filled volume), implant shape (round or teardrop), incision location (around the areola, in the breast crease, or in the armpit), and implant placement (atop or beneath the pectoral muscle).
Breast augmentation is usually not a one-time endeavor. Breast implants generally have a lifespan of 10 to 20 years at which point they are prone to leakage. Implant replacement surgery will then be required and is usually done through the previous incision locations.
