Breast Augmentation

Proud to serve the Allentown, Harrisburg, and Scranton areas.

Breast enhancement, also known as breast augmentation, is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which implants, made of a soft silicone shell and filled with either sterile salt water solution or silicone gel, are placed behind the breasts to enhance their size and shape.

Breast Implant Size

Breast Augmentation Pottsville PA

Breast Augmentation Patient, Age 40

Contrary to the stereotypes often portrayed by the media, most women who are interested in breast enhancement are seeking only a modest increase of about 1 – 1 ½ bra cup sizes and generally, wish to appear “noticeable but not unnatural”.

Some patients seek enhancement because their breasts never developed to a size that meets their expectations, while other patients desire improved balance in the proportion between their upper and lower body, allowing improved fit and greater flexibility in clothing styles.  Still other women may want to establish symmetry between breasts of significantly different size (see ‘Breast Asymmetry Correction’). Progressive loss of breast volume may commonly occur following pregnancy, weight loss or aging and is readily treated by breast augmentation.

During your initial consultation with Dr. Kimmel, he will go over with you in detail the breast implant options that would be a good fit.

Where is the breast augmentation surgery performed?

Keystone Surgery Center Pottsville PADr. Robert M. Kimmel performs the breast augmentation procedures at Keystone Surgery Center (KSC), a State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgery Center (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’), on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, lasting 1 ½ to 2 hours.

Keystone Surgery Center represents an ideal environment for any cosmetic or reconstructive surgery which you may be considering.

How is the breast procedure performed?

The incisions are 1 to 1 ½ inches in length, placed inconspicuously in the natural crease under the breast or in the armpit area and are virtually undetectable in several months.

How soon after surgery can I return to work?

After breast augmentation surgery, most women return to work in 1 to 2 weeks.

Can I get a mammogram after getting breast implants?

With current digital technology, there is no problem obtaining a mammogram after breast implants have been placed, and implants have no effect on a woman’s ability to breast feed.  Immediate gratifying results and long-lasting figure improvement combined with a confirmed safety record make breast enhancement an appealing choice for many women.

Choosing Dr. Kimmel for your breast augmentation

When considering breast enhancement surgery or indeed any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 20 years of clinical practice experience and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery® ASAPS), Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals and enjoy a happier, more confident lifestyle.
