Breast Augmentation in Cherry Hill, NJ
Dr. Paul M. Glat, MD, FACS, performs breast augmentations for patients in Cherry Hill, NJ.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentations involve enhancing the breast size with implants that are inserted to increase the volume. Implants made from silicone or saline are most often used for reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. Because of the stages of breast development, women must be at least 18 years old to have saline-filled implants and at least 22 years of age to receive silicone implants.
How Are Breast Augmentations Performed?
Breast augmentations take one to two hours to perform and involve general anesthesia for the patient. An incision is made under the arms, under the breast, or around the nipples to insert the implants, which are placed above or below each chest muscle. Incisions are then closed with surgical tape or layered sutures, and the incision lines will fade with time.
