Breast Augmentation in Missouri
Breast Augmentation (Mammoplasty)
Breast augmentation surgery, also known as breast implants, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Missouri. We’ve helped countless patients who were self-conscious about their small breast size quickly enhance their body image and self-confidence. And breast augmentation surgery is also suitable for Missouri patients who are suffering from asymmetrical breasts, or those who have undergone a mastectomy following a breast cancer diagnosis.

Whether you’re interested in silicone- or saline-filled implants, the procedure is typically the same. Your surgeon will make a small incision in the fold along the lower part of the breast, in the armpit, or in the skin around the areola to insert the implant underneath the breast tissue or chest muscle. It’s performed using general anesthesia, and patients can expect moderate discomfort for just a few days.
The best candidates for breast implants in Missouri are non-smokers in fairly good health who are looking to increase the firmness and size of their breasts. Many patients also opt to have other procedures such as a breast lift performed at the same time. You can also view before and after pictures of these combo procedures to see what suits your personal goals the best.
