Breast Augmentation

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

Dr. Kimmel of Keystone Surgery Center offers the latest medical advancements and provides personalized care for breast augmentation at both Pottsville and Hazleton locations. Also known as breast enhancement, 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 Sizes

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?

Breast Augmentation 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.

“There is nothing I would say to change. Every employee on the day of my surgery treated me so well. They accommodated me in everyway possible and helped alleviate my worries and stress. Everyone there helped make the day as easy for me as possible, which was greatly appreciated.”

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.
