Breast Augmentation, or augmentation mammaplasty, is the most popular surgical procedure performed by Dr. Barber here at the Barber Center. Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure that utilizes saline or silicone gel implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. This procedure is ideal for women who feel that their breasts are too small. Women who have experienced a loss of breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss also look to a breast augmentation to help restore what they once had. Others may have asymmetric breasts which can be corrected with implants to give a more balanced look.
Here at the Barber Center we offer patients a wide variety of saline and silicone gel implant options from multiple, safe, FDA approved manufactures such as Mentor®, Natrelle® and Sientra®. In addition to these well established brands, the Barber Center is excited to now offer a revolutionary new type of structured saline implant known as the Ideal® Implant. All of the these implants are designed to offer our patients a natural looking result that suit their individual needs.
During the consultation, Dr. Barber will discuss your surgical options, implants and answer all of your questions. Those who choose the Barber Center also enjoy the state of the art Vectra 3D Imaging technology we offer. Patients can see a three dimensional simulation of various implant sizes as well as access these images at a later date in order to help them make the right decision for them. From the initial consultation to your final post operative visit, Dr. Barber will be by your side every step of the way. Start down the road to a more confident you today!
