Breast Augmentation Enhancement

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most requested cosmetic procedures in the United States. Through the placement of silicone or saline implants, breast enlargement can provide balance and proportion to the body.

Giving You A More Shapely Figure

Breast Augmentation (also called Breast Enhancement or Boob Job) is the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedure. There are many reasons that a woman may choose to undergo breast enlargement. For some, it’s a matter of the way they look in their clothes, some are self conscious about their shape, and for others an enhancement can correct a shape defect. There are a number of reasons to choose breast enhancement:
• Feel that breasts are too small
• Breasts are uneven in size
• One breast is odd in shape, (tuberous breasts)
• Breasts appear deflated
• Breasts left saggy after pregnancy and breastfeeding
• Breasts lost volume due to a dramatic loss of weight

Dr. Henry Ramirez trained on breast augmentation with surgeons who use the most advanced proven techniques. In fact, his mentor surgeon has performed more breast augmentations than anyone else in the United States. Dr Ramirez uses an augmentation technique to keep the scar off the breast (no below nipple lines!). Known as a Transaxillary Incision, technique gives the breast a more natural shape and appearance without the noticeable scars.

Transaxillary Incision The transaxillary approach requires placing an incision in the crease of the armpit. For women who have not had prior breast enhancement, do not need a breast lift, and prefer a saline implant, this can be an optimal breast augmentation incision placement. The surgeon creates a small incision in the armpit and then forms a pocket in the chest wall for each implant. The implant is filled with saline after it has been placed in the chest pocket.

Transaxillary Incision Advantages: Each breast augmentation approach has its pros and cons, and the transaxillary is no different. The pros are its well-concealed scars. In fact, many patients who choose this approach do so because they do not want any scarring on or near their breasts. They also do not have to worry about breastfeeding complications or loss of nipple sensation following surgery.

Transaxillary Incision Disadvantages: Patients will need to follow instructions on massaging the area during the healing phase. Some patients may notice the implant rises when they put their hands over their heads. This is natural during the healing phase and should be massaged back into place.
