A breast augmentation is a very personal decision. Breast size is important to many women, and the decision to enhance their breast size is based on many factors. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Marshall Yellen brings his skills and expertise in enlarging small breasts, correcting asymmetry and restoring fullness.
Several variations of the procedure exist, but all consist of making a small incision in the skin (in one of three locations) and placing a specifically designed implant under the breast tissue or muscle. The implants are usually placed in two main categories: those filled with either saline or silicone, a gel-like substance. These implants are either round or shaped offering a variety of sizes and profiles.
Women consult with Dr. Marshall Yellen at Plastic Surgery Clinic of Jackson for many reasons, including:
- Desire for fuller breasts
- To restore breast volume from being lost pregnancy, weight loss or breastfeeding
- To recover better symmetry when breasts are uneven in shape or size augmentation
