Every woman is different. To plan your breast augmentation, the first step is to evaluate the current condition of your breasts, discuss what you envision in breast size, shape, and projection, and answer any questions you have about the various breast implant options available.
During surgery, Dr. Parker uses a “sizer” in order to determine the best size implant for you.
Sizers are temporary implants attached to a tube that Dr. Parker can work inside the pocket and fill up to test placement, implant size and fill levels. Once this has been tested, the sizer is removed and replaced with the permanent implant.
Breast augmentation is an outpatient surgical procedure that concludes within a few hours, and you can return home the same day.
The procedure may be conducted under general or local anesthesia, so you’re either asleep through the procedure or can’t feel anything even if you’re awake. The exact steps involved in the breast augmentation differ from one patient to the next — Dr. Parker will discuss your breast implant and incision options during your consultation.
If you are one of the many women who are unhappy with her breasts, you may be a candidate for breast augmentation. When you are unhappy with your breast size, the first step is to meet with us – why not live life with the body you want?
Breast implants can be placed beneath or above the chest muscles. The decision about placement of the implants will be based upon your aesthetic goals, and what Dr. Parker believes will produce the most beautiful result, for your body.
You’re a suitable candidate for breast augmentation if you:
There is no “best” implant. There are now more options than ever before in size, shape, and projection, all developed to produce a more natural look. What is the best implant for you? Only a consultation will reveal the type that will produce the look you want.
In most cases, the incision is placed in what is called the “inframammary fold,” or the crease below your breast. As the breasts will cover this fold, and the scar fades over time, these scars will be virtually invisible once you have healed.
Most women who have breast augmentation can still breastfeed, and there are no restrictions on becoming pregnant.
It is not uncommon for nipple sensation to be lost temporarily, often for up to a year before fully returning. If it has not restored after a year, you may have lost sensation for the long term.
There is a lifetime warranty on silicone breast implants. If one ruptures within 10 years of surgery, the implant company will give you up to $3500 towards the surgical expense in addition to the implants. If you develop a capsular contracture Baker Grade III or IV within 10 years of augmentation, the implant company will replace both implants at no cost.
In some cases, the scar tissue around an implant contracts to a degree that the implant is altered in shape, called capsular contracture. The symptoms of this issue typically appear fairly soon after the implants are placed, most often within two years of the implant surgery.
The breast implant is then constricted. The degree of contracture is rated under what is termed the Baker Grading System, which is as follows:
If you have experienced capsular contracture, Dr. Parker can assist by performing breast revision surgery.

Some surgeons even suggest third party sources from where you can avail such financing options. Understanding the factors that affect the surgery cost and the available financing options you have can help in estimating whether the procedure works out within your budget.
