About Breast Augmentation

Breast enlargement surgery, also called breast augmentation, increases the size of a woman's breasts with implants. For most women, an attractive, natural contour is best achieved by having the implants placed beneath the chest muscles; some women choose to have them placed beneath the breast tissue only. The implants are placed through incisions that are usually concealed under the breast crease, around the areolas (the dark skin around the nipple), or in the armpit.

In addition to or instead of breast augmentation, some women require a breast lift to elevate and shape breasts that are stretched and sag significantly. During your confidential consultation, Dr. Price will help you determine how to help you best achieve your cosmetic goals.

Most breast surgery may be performed with intravenous sedation, a technique that offers total patient comfort without the need for general anesthesia or hospitalization. Dr. Price can perform your procedure in his private, fully-licensed operating room, giving you a convenient alternative to hospital facilities. To learn more about this procedure and Dr. Price's techniques, please view our breast augmentation FAQ.

Types of Implants

In addition to implant placement and incision location, you will be able to choose the implant material. The two primary options available for implants are silicone and saline implants.

  • Silicone gel implants feel and move naturally, closely simulating the properties of natural breast tissue. Today's improved silicone implants are available to women who are at least 22 years old. Manufacturers offer a variety of silicone implants for different body types, shapes, and sizes.

  • Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water. Saline implants are inserted before they are filled, which allows for smaller incisions and customized sizing.

Patient education is very important to Dr. Price. During your consultation in his Guilford, Connecticut, office for breast augmentation, he will take the time to thoroughly explain all of your breast implant options and answer your questions. His goal is to help you attain the fuller breast size you desire while maintaining a natural look. Learn more about your different breast implant options.
