Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that enlarges woman’s breasts. An implant is placed behind the woman’s breast to enhance her natural breast. Some women desire larger breasts. Other women have differences between the right and left side. The goal of the surgery is to accentuate the woman’s natural breasts, creating a more full and confident appearance.
A breast implant is a silicone gel sac filled with either silicone or saline. Breast implants can have different textures on the outside. They can be smooth or textured. They come in various shapes and sizes. When deciding on size of breast implants the width of your chest, your body shape, and medical history are important.

If you are not sure, that’s OK. You will have an opportunity to talk about what is important to you and we will help you reach a conclusion. When you meet with Dr. Orloff you can decide together which implants would best fit your needs.
Sometimes breast implants are used to even out asymmetrical breasts. Most women have differences between the right and left breast. This is actually very common and it is rare to find a woman with identical breasts. Using slightly different implants can even out these differences and create a more aesthetic appearance. It makes wearing most clothing much easier and eliminates the need for padding the smaller side.
Dr.Orloff utilizes Vectra 3D Imaging technology to assist in the decision making process. You will be able to see your body with different size implants to help visualize which implant size and shape is best for you.
