For the woman that is not satisfied with the size of her breasts, we offer breast augmentation surgery (augmentation mammoplasty). Before performing this procedure the doctor and patient talk extensively of the material and size of the implants that will be used to shape the patient’s new breasts. At BajaMed we use the latest cohesive gel implant, along with saline, and silicone. All implants are FDA approved and go through rigorous inspecting to ensure their quality. The incision site depends on the patient and will be something that varies on a patient to patient basis. We commonly make the incision site under the breast, or through the areola. Based on the anatomy of the patient, the implants can be placed under (sub-muscular) the muscle, or over (supra-muscular) the muscle.
