Breast augmentation is most commonly performed on women who are unhappy with their breast size, symmetry, or the “droop” of their breasts. The age range of women seeking breast augmentation has a wide range from 18 to 70 years old! If you desire larger, shapelier, or more symmetrical breasts, you are likely a breast augmentation candidate.

If You’re Considering Breast Augmentation…
Breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty), is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast.
Breast Augmentation is Best to:
- Correct and enhance the body contour of a woman who feels that her breast size is too small
- Correct a reduction in breast shape or volume after pregnancy
- Balance a difference in breast size
- Lift the breast in a patient with only a minimal droop
The Breast Augmentation Procedure
Dr. Greenberg is able to perform breast augmentation in most patients with minimal or no visible scars! Dr. Stephen Greenberg has perfected the breast augmentation procedure so that the scars are usually undetectable. There are a variety of incisions that can be used for the breast augmentation procedure, including under the breast (infra-mammary), around the nipple (peri-areolar), under the arm (transaxillary), and through the belly button (transumbilical). The short infra-mammary incision has the advantage of the scar healing exceptionally well. In the majority of patients, the incision cannot be detected. This incision also offers better long-term results and perhaps lower overall complication rates. Dr. Greenberg often uses the short infra-mammary incision that usually heals without a visible scar. Choosing the right surgeon is especially important to the success of breast augmentation, and we invite you to learn more about the characteristics and qualifications you should demand.

In some cases, natural breast augmentation may be recommended for patients who want to use their own fatty tissue rather than breast implants.
It is very important that you stop smoking about 6 weeks prior to your surgery. This will significantly cut down on the possibility of breast augmentation risks. Smoking will affect incision healing. It constricts blood vessels preventing oxygen from easily getting to the area. This can either slow or even stop the healing process. Researchers have also done studies and found that people who smoke are more prone to incision infections. Smoking can also lead to blood clots near the incision, loosened stitches, skin graft failure and lengthier recovery.
Patient education is important to the success of all plastic surgery, including breast augmentation. We invite you to read our answers to frequently asked questions about the procedure.
