Breast augmentation (also called Augmentation Mammaplasty or breast implant surgery) is the surgical procedure performed by a cosmetic surgeon that uses breast implants to enlarge a woman’s breasts.

The procedure makes your breasts fuller and raises them just a bit (no more than ¾-inch). Dr. Lane Smith, a board-certified plastic surgeon, is considered to be one of the most experienced and well-trained plastic surgeons in the western United States. He is considered a breast augmentation expert and often performs corrective surgery on patients who did not get the outcome desired from other surgeons.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures and has one of the highest satisfaction rates of all cosmetic surgery procedures in the country.

Reasons Why Women Choose Breast Augmentation

A woman’s breasts are viewed the world over as a sign of beauty and femininity. Female breasts are one of the main ways cultures distinguish between male and female and so they are given significant importance in just about every country across the globe.

Because cultures place such importance on a woman’s breasts, a woman with small breasts often feels inferior and even at a disadvantage when it comes to being seen as attractive.

In addition, women who don’t develop breasts at all or who develop one large breast and one small one can experience feeling “abnormal” or “deformed.”

Breast augmentation surgery is a safe and highly effective way to provide women with larger or more symmetrical breasts. Patients who undergo breast augmentation surgery typically report that they feel more attractive and more feminine. Many also report an increase in their self-esteem, stating that the procedure was the best investment they’ve ever made.

Your Goals for Your Breast Augmentation

Each woman has different reasons  for choosing breast augmentation surgery. Your goals also will be different from any other woman’s goals.

Some women are looking for very large, round breasts. Some of Dr. Smith’s patients even have asked him specifically to make the breasts look “fake:” they want breasts that are extra firm, very round and extra high.

Other patients want him only to fill out breast tissue lost from nursing.  Still others ask for larger – but still natural looking – breasts. Cleavage is also important to many women.

Dr. Smith is most commonly asked to provide a look known as “enhanced natural,” in which a woman’s breasts are made a bit more full on the upper part, with a bit more cleavage than is natural. This provides breasts that look fuller and rounder, but not obviously fake or “operated on.”

As you first start talking to Dr. Smith about breast augmentation, make sure you tell him why you want breast augmentation surgery and how you’d like your breasts to look as a result.

While Dr. Smith can’t always give you the exact look you wish for, he will work to tailor the outcome to meet your desires as much as possible.

Breast Implants Can’t Correct Every Breast Problem

Please understand that breast augmentation surgery can’t correct every problem with your breasts.

Some of the things breast augmentation can’t correct:

  1. Very droopy breasts (ptotic breasts) that are drooping an inch or more may need a breast lift (mastopexy) in addition to (or in place of) breast augmentation
  2. Large differences in the position of one or both of your nipples may require additional surgery or techniques.
  3. Inverted nipples and large areolas also can’t be fixed with breast augmentation.

In short, breast augmentation mainly is used to increase your breasts’ volume.

Start Thinking About the Choices You’ll Be Making Regarding Your Breast Augmentation

You will be making several choices regarding your breast augmentation, including:

    1. Location of your breast implant and position of the incision site
    2. Size of your breast implant
    3. Shape of your breast implant
    4. Silicone or saline breast implant

You and Dr. Smith will discuss these choices at length as the two of you work together to make your decisions. To help you, we’ve put together pages (look for the menu to the right) with additional information on each of the numbered topics above.

Dr. Smith will guide you in your decision, but he feels strongly that you should feel that you have input into your breast augmentation outcome. All decisions you make are entirely up to you and Dr Smith and our staff members will work to ensure you are comfortable and happy with your ultimate results.
