Breast Augmentation Q & A

by Thomas McHugh, MD

Why Do People Have Breast Augmentations?

By improving breast symmetry, it can make you feel more attractive and thereby increase your self-confidence.

Sometimes, the surgery is done to enhance the shape and enlarge the size of a woman’s breast, improving her silhouette. Other times, breast augmentations restore breasts to their pre-pregnancy fullness.

Dr. McHugh uses implants for breast reconstruction surgery, which may be required after breast tissue has been removed due to cancer or trauma.

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

When it comes to breast augmentation, Dr. McHugh takes a personalized approach with each patient. Depending on a variety of factors, including your age, activities, and goals, he determines which type of breast surgery is best for you.

There are three primary ways to perform breast augmentation, and Dr. McHugh may discuss which option is best for you. He may suggest:

  • Transaxillary (incision under your arm)
  • Periareolar (incision around your nipple)
  • Inframammary (incision in your breast fold)

He determines if he should place your implants under the muscle, called a submuscular procedure, or on top of the muscle, which is a subglandular procedure.

Once Dr. McHugh determines the appropriate type and size of breast implants, he explains the surgical process, including anesthesia, recovery time, and implant care. He also discusses the potential risks, complications, and side effects.

What Type of Breast Implants Are Available?

At McHugh Plastic Surgery, Dr. McHugh offers patients NatrellaⓇ saline and silicone implants. Some of the most popular implants on the market, they have the texture of natural breast tissue and have helped millions of women enhance their breasts.
