Breast Augmentation



     For many women who would like to feel shapelier and better proportioned, the procedure of breast enhancement offers a solution. Whether you would like to be able to wear certain clothes, make your waist appear smaller, or simply restore the way you once looked before age and pregnancy took their toll, breast enhancement can help you achieve your goals.

     In breast enhancement surgery, a small incision is placed in a hidden area, and a saline or silicone implant is placed above or below the muscle depending on your individual body type and personal goals. After the breast implant surgery, a soft, conforming bra is worn for about four weeks to control swelling and the position of the implants. Normal activities are gradually resumed over the same period of time.

     When you come in for a consultation, you will have the opportunity to view a variety of before and after pictures of women who have had breast augmentation by Albuquerque breast surgeon Dr. Hopkins.
