About the Procedure
Breast augmentation surgery is the most popular surgical cosmetic procedure in North America. Choosing to undergo a breast augmentation is a very personal decision. Whether you wish to increase the size of your breasts, correct asymmetry or enhance your appearance after pregnancy and breast feeding, Dr. Johnston and his staff will work closely with you to determine your ideal shape.
There are two types of implants available for breast augmentation: silicone and saline. Many patients choose silicone implants for their soft, natural look and feel. Patients who choose saline breast implants are often attracted to the smaller incision area required. When it comes to placing the implant there are three common techniques. The implant can be inserted through an incision made underneath the breast, where it is inconspicuous. Another insertion site is the lower edge of the areola, the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple. A third option is a small incision within the armpit, which eliminates any scarring on the breast.
As with any surgical procedure, it is important to be treated by a physician with experience and a proven track record for great results. Dr. Johnston believes plastic surgery is a process that will enhance a patient’s natural beauty. Through excellence in patient care, commitment to the highest surgical standards, a personal and caring staff, and a discrete professional environment, Dr. Johnston will help you see the results you want.
