What can I expect during my consultation?
During your consultation you will collaborate with your surgeon to determine the details of your surgery. You will discuss options such as:
- Incision placement (areola, under the breast, armpit)
- Implant fill material (saline, silicone)
- Implant texture (smooth, textured)
- Implant shape (round, anatomic teardrop)
- Implant size
- Over or under the muscle
If your breasts are sagging, a breast lift can enhance the results of your breast augmentation. If recommended your surgeon will discuss this option with you during your consultation.
Your consultation will include simulating your breast augmentation with the VECTRA 3D imaging system to simulate your breast augmentation. You may then actually try on several example implants in the mirror under a special bra provided.

What exactly is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation (or augmentation mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure to increase the fullness and projection of a woman’s breasts, improve the balance of her figure, and enhance self-image and self-confidence. It is commonly performed at the same time as a breast lift.
How much does breast augmentation cost?
Breast augmentation is performed by both of our highly trained plastic surgeons, Dr. Eichenberg and Dr. Filip. Costs range between $5,000 and $7,000 depending on the type of implant selected and other details of the procedure. This includes the entire cost including anesthesia, surgical facility, post-surgical bra, and the surgeon’s fee.
Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?
Choosing to undergo breast augmentation should be a very personal choice for yourself, never for someone else. Ideal candidates for breast augmentation are typically:
- Physically healthy
- Bothered by a feeling that their breasts are too small
- Dissatisfied with the loss of volume in their breasts after pregnancy or breastfeeding
- Unhappy with the emptiness in the upper breast
- Have realistic expectations
- Have fully developed breasts
What is the recovery like?
Most patients leave the surgery center an hour after the surgery is complete. Dressings come off the following day and you will be able to shower normally. Expect to spend a few days resting at home then return to most light activities after a week. Strenuous exercise and full activity can usually resume after 3 weeks. Most women report that the procedure is not particularly painful, rather there is an uncomfortable tightness around their chest for the first few days and some soreness when moving their arms for a few weeks.
What are the basic steps of the procedure?
Breast augmentation is typically performed under general anesthesia on outpatient basis. A 1-2 inch incision is made according to your preference either around the areola, under the breast in the crease, or in the armpit. Your selected implant is then placed either over or under the pectoralis major muscle. Incisions are closed with absorbable sutures that are all beneath the skin surface. Surgical tape protects the incision and a soft surgical bra is worn home. From start to finish the entire procedure usually takes less than one hour.
How should I choose a surgeon?
First and foremost, ask lots of questions. Make sure that your surgeon puts you at ease during your initial consultation. Second, check his or her credentials. Lots of doctors advertise that they are certified as a facial plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon but only plastic surgeons have completed a rigorous residency in plastic surgery, are trained and experienced in all plastic surgery procedures, passed comprehensive exams, and graduated from an accredited medical school. Your safety is important and you want the best possible result.
