The surgeon will also help the patient choose the appropriate implant size, shape, and texture to achieve their desired outcome.
Breast augmentation can be performed using several different incision techniques, including inframammary, periareolar, and transaxillary incisions. The type of incision used will depend on the patient’s individual anatomy, the type of implant being used, and the surgeon’s preferences. Over time, the breasts may change due to aging, weight fluctuations, and other factors. Regular check-ups with a plastic surgeon can help ensure the long-term success of the procedure.

What People Says!
Our patients confirm how they feel after performing this procedure at Vitto MD.
I am so thankful to have found VITTO MD. I had been wanting to get a breast augmentation with a lift for a very long time due to my insecurity with a deformity in my breasts. I was always very concerned and nervous about following through with such a huge procedure, but I knew I was in the right hands the moment I met Dr. Gomez in my first consultation. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease with his vast knowledge and confidence. He is very professional, kind, and highly experienced.
