When you love the look of your breasts, it's easy to feel attractive and confident. Some women have always felt that their breasts were too small. For others, pregnancy, nursing, and weight loss have caused their breasts to lose volume and become smaller. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Pap offers MetroWest and Boston area women breast augmentation surgery to give them the fuller, more feminine bust they desire.

Improvements from Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation enhances the breasts by adding volume through the surgical placement of saline or silicone implants. While every woman has her own unique reasons for choosing breast augmentation, our Boston area patients commonly choose this procedure to:

  • Replace breast volume that was lost due to pregnancy, nursing, or weight loss
  • Increase the size of naturally small breasts
  • Achieve a more attractive overall breast shape
  • Balance the size of uneven breasts
  • Enhance self-esteem

While breast augmentation can give the breasts a lifted appearance, often a breast lift is required to eliminate sagging and restore a youthful breast appearance. During your consultation, Dr. Pap will ask you about your cosmetic concerns and determine which procedures will best help you achieve your goals.

Your Options

For a natural look, it's important to choose the right breast augmentation options for you. Dr. Pap will customize the procedure to your unique anatomy for pleasing results that naturally integrate with your body. He will help you choose:

  • Implant type: either silicone gel or saline filled
  • Implant placement: either above or beneath the chest muscle
  • Incision site: typically around the areola (periareolar), along the breast fold (inframammary), or in the armpit (transaxillary)
  • Implant size: determined by your goals and amount of existing breast tissue

Final implant sizing is decided during a second consult visit when Dr. Pap encourages patients to bring a partner or spouse along. By taking the time to listen to your goals and devoting special attention to detail, he enables you to achieve the size you want.

Many women desire a more comprehensive improvement and combine their breast augmentation with other procedures such as breast lift, tummy tuck, or liposuction.

What to Expect

Dr. Pap typically performs breast augmentation as an outpatient procedure in a hospital setting. He uses general anesthesia so the patient sleeps through the entire procedure. After breast augmentation, most women can return to light activities within 7 to 10 days and resume their normal routine, including exercise, within 3 weeks.
