Having fuller, more sensuous breasts is highly desirable, particularly by women with breasts that are naturally small or have lost volume over time. Breast augmentation is designed to enhance a woman’s figure by adding fullness to her breasts using implants. Saline or silicone implants are inserted through one of three carefully placed incisions to improve the projection of the bust and create a pleasing chest contour. Dr. Hotchandani, long standing member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, has been successfully performing breast augmentations and other cosmetic procedures since 2005, delivering beautiful results and optimal patient satisfaction.
Dr. Hotchandani will evaluate your condition and cosmetic objectives during a private consultation. He will devise a treatment plan that will address your concerns and anatomical needs. Ideal candidates for breast augmentation should be in good health and can relate to one or more of the following imperfections:
All incisions are placed in inconspicuous locations so that they are easily concealed by undergarments and the natural contours of the body. Incisions may be created in the crease of the underarm (axillary), around the areola (periareolar), or under the breast (inframammary).
Implants can be placed underneath the pectoral muscle (subpectoral) or beneath the glandular breast tissue (subglandular). Patients with minimal existing breast tissue may achieve a more natural breast slope can benefit from the subpectoral placement. Those who desire more prominent cleavage may consider subglandular placement.
Implants come in many shapes and sizes and are made of a silicone shell filled with saline or cohesive silicone gel. Silicone implants more accurately replicate the look and feel of natural breasts, and saline implants can be inserted through more incision locations. The type of breast implant that will be used depends on the patient’s aesthetic desires and expectations.
