Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a wonderful way to enhance your natural contour and help you feel more confident.

Breast Augmentation with Portland Plastic Surgeon,Dr. Bensimon

There is common misconception that breast augmentation is as simple as inserting an implant. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It is actually a reshaping of the breast in which the implant provides the necessary volume for a beautiful, natural result. When done correctly, breast augmentation requires meticulous planning and precise execution. Dr. Richard Bensimon is a leading provider of breast augmentation in Portland. His surgical approach yields beautiful results that are natural in appearance and in proportion with your body.

Dr. Bensimon’s Surgical Approach
There are many factors to consider when planning breast augmentation. During your consultation, Dr. Bensimon will discuss your goals, implant types and the three primary surgical approaches. The three primary surgical approaches for breast augmentation are underneath the fold of the breast (infra-mammary), around the areola (peri-areolar), and in the armpit (trans-axillary). Dr. Bensimon has advanced expertise in all approaches including trans-axillary. The trans-axillary approach to breast augmentation is not performed as frequently because of the high level of surgical skill required but it produces beautiful results with no scarring on the breast and is one of Dr. Bensimon’s specialties.

Your comfort is important to Dr. Bensimon
Your post operative comfort begins in surgery. The surgery is performed in a manner which is precise and gentler on your tissues resulting in a more comfortable recovery. Dr. Bensimon does not rely on straps, bindings or special bras to help create your shape after breast augmentation surgery. These devices are ineffective and a poor substitute for surgical skill. Shaping and contouring the breast is done during the surgical procedure. This helps you to feel more comfortable without restricting your movement. You will even be able to shower the next day.

Implant Types
Dr. Bensimon offers both saline and silicone implants. Today’s silicone implants are more cohesive than those produced in years past. They are not liquid. Do not run or spread, and are widely considered to be a very safe option for breast augmentation. They are approved by the FDA for women over 22.

Saline implants have been widely used since 1991. As the name implies, they are filled with salty water. Both saline and silicone implants are available in a wide variety of sizes.

Breast Augmentation is safe, does not interfere with your ability to breast feed, does not interfere with your ability to have mammography and does not cause any harm to breast tissue.
