True beauty is characterized by confidence, poise, and inner strength, but you may not always feel confident if you’re dissatisfied with your appearance. At NuBody Concepts, we believe in helping people achieve outer beauty that reflects the beauty within. A breast augmentation (or “boob job”) is a popular procedure that helps you gain confidence through improved self-image.
Led by our Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, our cosmetic surgery team uses techniques perfected over years of experience in plastic surgery and body contouring. By spending time and asking questions to understand your aesthetic goals, we are able to deliver the results YOU want.
You may consider a breast augmentation procedure for a variety of reasons. Based on your specific needs, our plastic surgeon will help you determine which procedure is best for you, depending on your goals:
If you have small breasts and want to increase their size, you’re an ideal candidate for breast implants. During your consultation, our surgeon will meet with you to discuss your goals and help you pick out the type and size of implant best suited for you. This is the fun part!
If your breasts have lost their fullness—whether by going through childbirth and breastfeeding, losing a considerable amount of weight, or just as a result of gravity and time—you may benefit from a breast lift in addition to the use of implants. Or you may be happy with the fullness of your breasts but not their shape, in which case you’re a candidate for a breast lift without implants.
If you are dissatisfied with your tummy as well as your breasts, you may be interested in one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures, the Mommy Makeover, in which we combine a breast augmentation with our NuBody Tummy Tuck.
One of the first questions asked by patients in a breast augmentation consultation is about implants. What choices do you have, how does each of them score in terms of safety, look, and feel, and which ones do we recommend?
Your basic choice of implant for a breast augmentation is either silicone or saline. Both are perfectly safe and FDA-approved. This means that safety doesn’t have to be a consideration for you when choosing your implant. The differences between the two have to do with the way they feel and look. Some women – and surgeons – prefer the feel of silicone as the more comparable to a natural breast. On the other hand, saline implants are easier to insert and replace, which makes them the favorite of yet other surgeons. And if overall cost is an issue, then you might give saline implants the nod, as they are generally less expensive than silicone implants.
Even within these broad categories, there are differences between implants, both in terms of firmness and shape. You may have heard of “teardrop implants” and, the latest, “gummy bear implants.” Depending on what level of firmness and shape you prefer, we will help you make an informed selection.
Ultimately, you have several choices when it comes to the right implant for a breast augmentation, and it is entirely yours to make. Our board-certified plastic surgeon is happy to discuss these choices with you and help you make the best decision for you during a personal consultation.
If you have areas of your body with more padding than you like—say, around your tummy or thighs—you may be interested in our NuBody Fat Transfer procedure, for which we use liposuction to extract fat cells from unwanted areas of your body and transfer them into your breasts for a completely natural breast enhancement. With this unique body contouring method perfected by our physicians over the years, we can safely and effectively sculpt your body exactly how you want it.
“I recently had a breast augmentation here. The staff is amazing, literally all of them. They treat you like family. Andrea the consultant was great about explaining everything. She helped me pick what size to go with. They made sure I didn’t pick something that wouldn’t fit my body and made sure my choice was proportionate to my size. Can’t wait for warmer weather to show my new girls off.”
