Dr. Frenzel specializes in breast augmentation surgery and spent an entire year in a specialized cosmetic surgery fellowship to learn the “art” of aesthetic breast surgery including breast augmentation.
Women of all ages can be sensitive about the size and the appearance of their breasts. Perhaps the breasts never developed sufficiently or have changed over time due to age, nursing, or gravity. If you are considering a breast enhancement yourself, you will be comforted somewhat in knowing that you are not alone. Cosmetic breast surgery continues to be one of the most popular procedures performed today on women ages 18 to 60.
Silicone also called “gel” or “gummy bear” implants or saline breast implants can be used to augment the size and shape of the breasts. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes to match the anatomy of any patient. Breast implants can be placed above or below the pectoral muscle, and the surgery can involve several different types of incisions.
Incision Options for Breast Implants:
- Umbilical or “Belly Button” incision: a small hidden incision is made in the navel.
- Periareolar incision: a curved incision is made at the outer border of the colored portion of the areola.
- Inframammary incision: a 3-4 cm incision is made in the fold of the breast.
- Axillary incision: an incision is made in the armpit area.
Why Undergo Breast Augmentation?
- To correct a disproportionate figure–where the breasts are too small for the rest of the body, hips, chest, etc.
- To restore breasts to a more pleasing size and appearance due to changes in the breast size and shape due to pregnancy, breast feeding, or significant weight loss.
- To improve the subtle changes brought by aging and gravity.
- To correct an inherited deformity like where one breast does not develop like the other.
- To provide an improved self-image and self-confidence.
- To acquire a more flattering physique in or out of clothing.
