What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?

What Motivates Women to Have Breast Augmentation?

There is a common misconception about why women want breast implants in the first place: there may be a loss of breast volume and shape after breastfeeding the kids; a woman with no breast tissue may wish for breasts that are more proportionate and natural for her body; a woman may have lost a lot of weight and with it, lost all of her breasts; she may want to look less masculine; there may be asymmetries in her breasts; there may be asymmetries in her breasts; The point is that many women in the Puget Sound and Pierce County, Washington, as well as across the country and around the world, have breast implants for a variety of very personal reasons, and there are many women with breast implants in the Northwest.


There are three places where an incision can be made:
Transaxillary (sometimes known as a “hidden incision”): The endoscope is inserted through a covert incision in the armpit, allowing for accurate dissection and the construction of a breast pocket for the implant.
The incision is performed at the crease where the breast meets the chest wall, called the inframammary.
The periareolar incision is performed where the areola joins the breast skin on the lower portion of the areola.

Implant Types

Silicone – A silicone gel is used to fill these implants. They are supposed to have a softer, more natural feel and less rippling than saline implants.

Saline – A silicone shell is used to contain a sterile saline solution. We see less saline implants being used since the advancement of silicone gel implants.

The size and kind of implant chosen for your treatment will be determined by your current breast size and body shape; you don’t want a breast that is too big or too little.
Dr. Cohen’s artistic sensibility, as well as his use of dimensional analysis to determine the width and contour of the breast base, kicks off the process of deciding on the size and kind of implant. We employ the notion of dimensional breast analysis in your consultation to characterize your breast size and shape, as well as the relationship between your breast and your chest and body type. We’ll go through the concept of the “breast footprint,” or the breast’s base width diameter, and how it relates to the appropriate implant width for achieving the desired and proportionate result. We look at how the varied profiles of breast implants affect the size and contour of the augmented breasts.
