Breast Augmentation San Diego CA
Augmentation, or enhancement, of the breasts has been in existence in the U.S. since the early 1960’s. The purpose of this procedure is to increase the size or fullness of the breasts. It can also help balance the size of the breasts when they are unequal. There are many different ways to accomplish this, and Dr. G can discuss each of these with you to help you receive the best results.
The different types of breast implants
In addition to round saline filled breast implants, silicone gel implants have been available for routine use in the U.S. since 2006. Dr. G has vast experience using not only these implants, but he has been one of the early adopters of the newer silicone gel implants to be introduced to the San Diego and La Jolla regions. These include the cohesive, or “form stable” (gummy bear), implants, and they are available in either round or a variety of different shapes. If you would prefer to avoid the use of implants and have a more modest increase in the size of your breasts, fat transfer utilizing your own fat is an option, and Dr. G can discuss this with you as well.
