Many women choose to enhance the size, shape and position of their breasts with bilateral breast augmentation, making this procedure one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in North America. Dr. Born is one of the most experienced breast augmentation surgeons in the U.S and Canada and is known for ensuring the most natural and beautiful look and feel for his breast augmentation patients. Breast augmentation using silicone or saline filled implants can help some patients achieve a fuller cup size, firmer and more symmetrical breasts, and better positioning for a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing breast contour.
BBA or bilateral breast augmentation refers to the enhancement of the breasts using the surgical placement of an implant. There are 2 types of breast implant used – silicone or saline filled. Both types of implant are very safe, and each has its own set of advantages. During your consultation, Dr. Born will perform a thorough physical assessment, taking a series of measurements to evaluate your skin quality and other characteristics of your natural breast tissue and shape. All of these findings play an important role in determining the shape, size and optimal placement of the implants to achieve the best result possible. Breast Augmentation is performed under general anesthesia and the surgery usually takes about an hour to two hours to perform depending on the case. During the surgery, a small incision is made along the underside of the nipple. Dr. Born then creates a “pocket” within the breast tissue where he places the implant. Depending on the individual patient, the implant may be placed either above, or beneath the pectoral muscle. With breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Born aims to enhance the breast contour while ensuring the most comfortable, natural look and feel possible for the patient.
Candidates for breast augmentation range in age from 18-70 years of age as long as they are in good health and fit for surgery under general anesthetic. If you developed breast asymmetry at an early age or after pregnancy, have noticed a loss of shape and volume over time or with weight loss, or are simply looking to enhance your breasts because you feel self-conscious in certain clothing, then breast augmentation may be an option for you. During your consultation, Dr. Born will perform a full physical assessment in order to gather the information he needs to develop a thorough treatment strategy. You will also discuss your personal goals and concerns. With all of this in mind, Dr. Born will determine which surgical technique and approach should be used in order to guarantee the best outcome with the least amount of risk.
