What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure in which our plastic surgeon places a silicone or saline-filled implant within the breast to increase the size and improve the shape of your breasts right here in her Elmhurst, IL, practice. During your consultation, Dr. Saulis will learn more about your treatment goals, including your desired implant shape and size, to make sure that you get the results you’re looking for.
During your consultation, not only will we discuss the overall shape and size you are looking to achieve with breast implants, but also the type of implant (saline vs. silicone) we will use and how the implant will be placed (either under or over the muscle of the breast).
