“Breast Augmentation is the management of a patient’s expectations with their body’s limitations.” Board-certified plastic surgeon Aristides Arellano, MD approaches each breast augmentation procedure with this philosophy in mind. His main goals when performing this popular procedure are patient safety and satisfaction, coupled with a natural-looking, long-lasting outcome.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to improve the shape and increase the size of a woman’s breasts through the use of breast implants. Dr. Aristides patients typically undergo this procedure to achieve a greater proportional balance, address asymmetrical concerns, or restore volume lost over time.
Dr. Aristides will discuss your breast enlargement cosmetic surgery goals with you and define a realistic treatment plan. Based on your goals, the dimensions of your breast and body, and your tissue’s characteristics, you and Dr. Aristides will select the appropriate breast implants. In addition, you will determine the appropriate incision and position of your ideal implant in order to achieve the desired result. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions on how to prepare. You will also schedule a pre-operative appointment to review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and confirm your size choice with our new custom bra sizing system.
Your breast augmentation procedure generally takes less than one hour and will be performed under general anesthesia administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and Board Certified Nurse Anesthetist. Dr. Aristides works with a Board Certified operating team that has been together since 1993.
