Breast Augmentation surgery involves the use of breast implants to increase the size or fullness of the breasts. Breast implants are filled with either silicone gel or saline (salt water). Both types of implants can be an excellent choice. Breast implants are categorized based on their shape, surfacing, and profile. They can be placed either above or below the pectoralis muscle. The incisions can be in the inframammary crease, periareolar or transaxillary.
Dr. Morea has extensive experience with both saline and silicone breast implants. He was an investigator for silicone implants prior to and throughout its FDA approval in December of 2006.

Breast Lift or Mastopexy is a surgical procedure that can rejuvenate your figure by restoring the lift and fullness to the breast. Childbirth, breastfeeding, and weight loss can cause the breasts to sag or droop. A mastopexy can lift the breast and maintain the same initial size or the mastopexy can increase or decrease the size of the breast. Breast implants, either saline or silicone, can be placed for women who wish to maintain the same size or to achieve larger breasts. In order to lift the breast, the required incisions are different from breast augmentation and may be a factor for women to consider. Mastopexy is performed with incisions around the areola, along with the breast crease and in a vertical line connecting the other two incisions. During your breast lift consultation with Dr. Morea, he will explore and discuss your options to achieve your desired results.
