Breast augmentation is a treatment option for women who are uncomfortable with their breasts because they have lost shape or volume. At Cosmetic Medicine and Surgery at Mercy in Baltimore our plastic surgeons perform breast augmentation to help women regain shape and symmetry for a more youthful appearance.

Breast implants feel more natural today and are much safer than implants of years past. Silicone gel implants and saline implants are among the options for a breast augmentation.
See before and after photos for breast augmentation.
Women who have lost shape and volume in their breasts, want larger breasts, or have different sized breasts are some of the best candidates for a breast augmentation.
A breast augmentation does not correct breasts that are severely sagging or drooping. A breast lift with breast augmentation is a treatment option for women who would like to correct severely sagging breasts and gain a fuller breast size.
Breast implants come in a variety of sizes to match a patient’s desires.
The location of a breast augmentation incision can depend on the type of implant used. An incision for a breast augmentation can be made below the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit.
A breast augmentation is not permanent. Aging, gravity, hormones, or weight fluctuation can cause changes and shifting of the breast over time. A replacement breast implant may be required, so it is important to have follow-up visits with your plastic surgeon to watch for breast changes.
