Dr. LoTempio performs breast augmentation using both saline-filled and silicone gel-filled breast implants. The type of implant that gets used depends on the patient. After discussing the available options and getting feedback about what is important to the patient, Dr. LoTempio works together with the patient to determine the right size, type, and placement of implants that can produce the desired look.
There are many reasons a woman seeks breast augmentation. She may have spent her entire life feeling physically inadequate because of small breasts. She may have previously been comfortable with her breasts but experienced breast changes and loss of volume due to weight loss, childbearing, or aging. Whatever the reason, today's breast augmentation techniques may help to bring about the physical and emotional changes women seek.
The recovery period is fairly short after receiving breast implants. Most patients return to work in just a few days, and they can resume more strenuous activities in two to three weeks.
