Importance of Annual Follow-Up Visits After Breast Augmentation

After eleven years in practice, and as a busy plastic surgeon with vast experience in breast augmentation as well as breast augmentation revision, I am still perplexed by the number of patients who only come to a few “post-operative” appointments and then no longer follow up with their plastic surgeon. This is not simply unique to my practice, as this […]

Breast Implant Feel Is Just as Important as Appearance

As plastic surgeons, we are trained to use a very refined eye to try to achieve the best appearance in anything we do. For breast augmentation, something I specialize in and have for nearly 11 years in practice, this involves striving to create the best shape and symmetry for the breasts.

My Breasts Are Uneven After Augmentation – What Should I Do?

If you notice irregularities in regard to the size and/or positioning of your implants immediately after breast augmentation, it’s not time to panic. Some initial swelling in the breasts is a common side effect of surgery, and it often occurs in varying degrees that may make the breasts appear uneven in the first few days – or even weeks – […]

Should I Massage My Breasts After Breast Implant Surgery?

At Boynton Plastic Surgery, all breast augmentation procedures I perform are subpectoral, meaning the implants are placed under the muscle. Following surgery, the top of the breasts initially appear excessively full because the muscle tightens right away. As the skin and muscle relaxes and stretches to accommodate added chest volume, the implants gradually “settle” into place. During this time, the […]
