Most comprehensive cosmetic surgical procedures in Hawaii
Considering cosmetic surgery is an exciting time. You are imagining the possibilities and researching not only the cosmetic surgery procedures but which breast doctor is most qualified to help you achieve your personal goals!
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to enhance the body contour of a woman unhappy with her breast size. It may also be used to correct volume loss after pregnancy, or to help balance breast size asymmetries. Breast augmentation is also performed as a reconstructive technique following other breast surgery.
While breast augmentation will enlarge the breasts, it will not alter basic defects in breast shape or form. Major asymmetries may be improved, but will not be completely corrected. A slight difference in the size or shape of the two breasts is considered normal and should not be a cause for concern. If breast size or nipple position asymmetries are severe then additional procedures to further improve symmetry may be necessary. Long experience with this operation has demonstrated it to have highly satisfactory results for the majority of patients who are considered suitable candidates for the surgery.
At Cosmetic Center of Hawaii, all breast augmentation operations are carried out by Dr. Angelo Cuzalina in our surgical suite in Waimea under general anesthesia and on an outpatient basis. A breast implant is placed through an incision, under the breast tissue or under the muscle. The incision can be made under the breast, around the nipple, in the armpit or in the belly button. It generally takes one to two hours to complete the entire procedure. A breast implant is composed of an outer silicone shell filled with saline or silicone gel. The outer surface may be smooth or textured, and implants come in various shapes to meet the individual woman's needs.
