A woman’s breasts not only enhance her feeling of being feminine but they also play a role in balancing the overall proportions of her body. For women who feel their breasts are too small for their body style, Dr. Pollard recommends breast augmentation. We are happy to offer breast augmentation to patients located in Bala Cynwyd and surrounding communities in Philadelphia, who desire larger, more voluptuous breasts.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures offered at Pollard Plastic Surgery. The goal of the procedure is to add volume to your breasts while maintaining a natural appearance. The procedure requires the use of general anesthesia and allows you to go home the same day. Based on your individual needs, Dr. Pollard chooses an incision site that will not only support the goals of your surgical plan, but that also minimizes scarring. Incisions may be placed in the natural crease under your breast, along the lower edge of your areola, or in your armpit. Dr. Pollard creates a pocket for the breast implant either underneath or on top of your chest muscles. The implant is inserted and positioned, and the incisions are closed. After your breast augmentation procedure, you will be required to rest for a few days. Follow all post-surgical instructions so that you heal properly.

What are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?
Breast size is most often described by a bra cup measurement, but from a medical standpoint, this is not always an accurate way to determine breast size. The reason is that your cup size varies based on the type of bra that you use. A common misconception with breast augmentation is that the increase in size means an increase in bra cup size – for example, going from an “A” cup to a “C” cup. This approach only leads to unrealistic expectations on the patient’s part. Therefore, Dr. Pollard works with you to determine the implant size that gives you the most natural appearance that complements your body type.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Because breast augmentation requires the use of general anesthesia, ideal candidates should be in good overall health first and foremost. Patients who are considering saline breast implants must be at least 18 years of age, and patients considering silicone implants must be at least 22 years of age.
