Skilled Doctors Helping Patients Renew Their Confidence With Augmentations Of The Breasts
What is breast augmentation surgery? This procedure increases the size of the patient’s breasts with the help of an implant. Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most well-known and popular types of plastic surgery.

What Are Breast Implants Made Of?
Breast implants are made out of a silicone shell and filled either with silicone gel or saline. Silicone breast implants are filled to a specific volume and sealed at the factory. Therefore, they’re not adjustable. Saline breast implants come empty and are filled on during the procedure, and their volume can be adjusted.
Which Breast Implants Are The Most Natural Looking?
Patients often ask, “Which breast implants are the safest?” or “Which breast implants look the most natural?” Modern breast implants, whether saline or silicone, are very safe. While both saline and silicone breast implants do an excellent job of increasing breast size, in my experience, the silicone implants feel the most natural.
Which Breast Augmentation Incision Is The Best?
The incision may be made in the fold under the breast or around the edge of the areola. A qualified plastic surgeon will discuss these incisions with you and help you determine which incision is the best choice for your body.
How Long Is The Recovery Period Following A Breast Augmentation Procedure?
Patients often want to know, “What is the average breast enlargement recovery time?” Patients experience the most pain within the 48 hours following the surgery. The pain will slowly decrease after this time, but you may still feel tightness or sensitivity in your breasts. It can also be difficult to move in certain positions until your breasts have fully healed.
Most of the time, the surgical dressings and external sutures will be removed after one week. Patients are usually able to return to work within a week as well. However, the surgeon will not clear you to resume all normal activities for about six weeks.
In Boston, How Much Does Breast Augmentation Surgery Cost?
One of the first questions that patients ask is “What does breast augmentation cost?” This is a difficult question to answer because the average price of breast augmentation surgery varies greatly. It’s best to discuss prices with your plastic surgeon so that you know what to expect. Fortunately, our practice offers financing plans to patients who would like to make payments.
How Safe Is A Boob Job?
Every surgical procedure carries some degree of risk, including breast augmentation surgery. Some of the complications that may arise during this procedure include infection, scarring, changes in sensation and results that may not satisfy every patient. It’s impossible to eliminate these risks completely, but you can minimize potential risks by working with a board-certified surgeon who offers years of experience performing these surgeries.
I had a great experience with Dr. Shektman and his team for my breast augmentation. I was extremely nervous to even have a consultant but felt very much at ease by the end of it. The surgery team was wonderful and made me feel incredibly relaxed right before the operation. Recovery (for me) was easy and I was back to work within a few days. The results were amazing – I wish I had done this years ago. – Tonya M.
Breast Implants Vs. Breast Lift
It’s important to understand the difference between a breast augmentation versus a lift. A breast augmentation surgery increases the size of the breast with the use of an implant. On the other hand, a lift repositions breasts that have started to sag downwards due to aging, childbirth, or weight loss. If you are happy with the positioning of your breasts but not with the size of them, then a breast augmentation surgery is the right choice for you.
Surgeons often perform breast augmentation and breast lift procedures at the same time. This is ideal for patients who have small breasts or uneven breasts that are suffering from a loss of volume. Many moms opt to have both of these procedures to fix sagging breasts caused by pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Is Breast Augmentation Worth It?
There are many benefits of breast augmentation surgery that make this procedure worth it for patients. Breast implants tend to make patients look younger because their breasts are larger and fuller in volume.
Women who have breast implants also love the way their breasts look in clothes or swimsuits. Many women who have breast implants choose not to wear a bra because they don’t need the same support.
Breast implants can also increase your self-esteem if you feel insecure about having a flat chest or small breasts. Breast augmentation can also be used to even out breasts when one is larger than the other. For these reasons, our patients find that breast augmentation surgery is definitely worth it.
