Breast Augmentation

"...In 1 Ĺ hours,  I was done, feeling great, sitting up and talking to everyone.   I was so happy.  Now my concerns long before I could exercise and how long before I could wear clothes braless..."   42 year old Registered Nurse and mother of 2 children

Breast augmentation is intended for women ages 20 to 50 years old who seek a fuller, more feminine, but natural look.  Breast augmentation is an effective way to compensate for a small amount of breast tissue, or for loss of upper poll fullness in breasts resulting from pregnancy or nursing.  Breast augmentation is also effective in allowing patients to obtain a more proportional silhouette.  

During the initial consultation, Dr. Mallen inquires about the patientís personal expectations and describes how her desired results can be best achieved.  Pre- and post-operative photos of other breast augmentation procedures are reviewed in detail.  In a chaperoned exam, Dr. Mallen evaluates the patientís genetic makeup, stature, as well as proportionality of shoulders, rib/chest area and hips.  Based on the patientís preferences and exam, Dr. Mallen explains how sizing of breast implants can enhance fullness of breast tissue and projection of breasts.

This 31 year old Registered Nurse desired breast augmentation.  She had lost fullness after nursing her 2 children. She requested a modest enlargement which would be proportional to her 5'5", 120 lb frame.
