Breast augmentation in Sacramento is used to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breasts. The need for breast augmentation can range from changing the body contour of a woman who feels her breast size is too small, to correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, or to balance a difference in breast size and shape.
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.

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?
The majority of women seeking this surgery seek only to have normal size breasts that relates to their body proportions and they are not seeking to become exceptionally larger.
Breast implants make small breasts larger. They may, but do not necessarily improve their shape. Breasts made larger by implants may have the same tendency to droop and sag as the same size breasts without implants. Drooping and sagging breasts sometimes, however, can be corrected partially with breast implants in Sacramento.
What are the types of breast implants in Sacramento?
Both saline and silicone breast implants are offered here at Sacramento Surgical Arts PC. Either implant type offers advantages for you to consider. Saline implants allow for a smaller surgical incision and with certain techniques, a hidden scar. Silicone implants offer a look and feel that closely resembles your natural breast tissue. During your consultation, you can discuss these considerations with Dr. Heir.
Does breast augmentation surgery leave scars?
Sacramento cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jagdev Heir performs this procedure primarily as a transaxillary (via the underarm region), sub-fascial approach. Because the implant is placed through a small incision in the armpit, the procedure is nearly scarless.
