Breast Augmentation in Palm Breach Gardens, Jupiter, and Palm Beach

Women who are dissatisfied with the size or shape of their breasts may consider surgery to create the look they want. In some cases, breast volume may have always been a concern, driving women to make a change to improve their appearance. Other times, breasts might change their size and shape due to lifestyle choices, weight fluctuations or the natural aging process. The result can be a loss of volume that makes a woman feel self-conscious about her profile. No matter what your reason for pursuing surgery, a breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) can help you enlarge the breasts while achieving balance in the shape and proportionality of your curves. With their prestigious education and extensive training in the art and science of breast surgery, the doctors at Lickstein Plastic Surgery have successfully performed breast augmentation surgery on many patients from in and around Palm Beach County and beyond, helping them achieve outstanding results, restoring or improving their self-confidence.

There are different reasons why a woman might choose to undergo breast augmentation

There are different reasons why a woman might choose to undergo breast augmentation

Women seeking to improve naturally small breasts are typically between 18 and 40 years of age and may be looking to achieve a more proportionate breast size. Women with petite frames may find that they have less breast tissue to work with, which can impact their augmentation choices. Those with small breasts combined with asymmetry or poor shape can also benefit from breast augmentation using implants.

Breast Augmentation Surgery Discussed by Dr. David Lickstein

Before & After

A standard of excellence recognized year after year by patients, the community, physician peers, and professional societies. The results speak for themselves.

Choices in Breast Augmentation in Palm Beach Gardens, and Palm Beach

The decision to undergo breast augmentation is the first of a series of choices that will need to be made in anticipation of the procedure.

There are three basic types of implants available:

Saline

Saline implants are comprised of a silicone shell filled with a saltwater solution. They are FDA-approved for women 18 years or older. Since they are inserted as an empty shell, saline implants may be filled during y our procedure to ensure a customized result. Smaller incisions may also be used to place saline implants, leaving less visible scarring behind.

No matter what your choice of implant might be, our surgeons will help you determine the right size, shape and profile to match your body proportions. The primary aim of breast surgery is to create a natural result while adding the fullness and cleavage you want.

Implant Placement

Implants may be placed over the chest muscle and underneath the breast tissue, which is known as subglandular placement. This is a good option for women that have substantial tissue to cover the implant. Submuscular placement describes placing the implant underneath the tissue and a portion of the pectoral (chest) muscle. Submuscular placement may be recommended for women that have a limited amount of breast tissue since the location will conceal the edges of the implant. It is not a good option for bodybuilders or others that work out regularly, since the contraction of the chest muscle may distort the outer appearance of the breast.

Adressing Concerns

Women considering breast augmentation often come to their initial consultation with a host of concerns, which will be addressed by one of our surgeons at that first meeting. Some of those questions might include:

Will I have Scars after the Procedure?

Augmentation mammoplasty uses thin, well-placed incisions designed to limit visible scarring. However, scar formation varies based on the patient’s natural healing abilities. If you do develop scars after your surgery, it is likely they will fade considerably over time. The doctors at Lickstein Plastic Surgery will provide you with detailed instructions on how to care for your incisions after surgery to minimize scarring as well.

The Recovery Process

You will experience bruising and swelling after surgery, but our surgeons and staff will provide you with instructions to minimize those side effects and medication to manage any post-operative pain. You will be advised to wear a surgical support bra for several weeks during the recovery process, which limits swelling and provides necessary support and protection to the breasts while they heal. Most patients return to work within one to two weeks after their procedure and will be able to resume a regular exercise routine within about four weeks. Significant swelling should subside within six weeks, but residual swelling can persist for many months.

The Patient Experience

If you are still unsure about whether breast augmentation is the right choice for you, consider what these former patients have had to say about Dr. Lickstein and their surgical experience overall:

“I think that your office staff and nurses are friendly, courteous and very knowledgeable. I am thrilled with my surgical results and the way in which I was treated from the pre-surgery interview through aftercare. I highly recommend this office.”
