Breast Augmentation in Tampa Bay

Dr. Wayne Lee’s expertise in breast surgery will discuss options to women who may feel that their breast size is somewhat inadequate in proportion to their overall figure. This is especially true in thin, athletic women and any woman after pregnancy. Often, the most effective way to correct this condition is breast augmentation with either saline-filled or silicone gel-filled breast implants. Breast augmentation has become one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Tampa bay area as well as the United States.

The size, shape, and position of the implant must be specifically selected based on careful examination of each individual patient’s anatomy. One type of breast augmentation and one type of breast implant will not give the most natural and attractive result in every woman. The key principle is to employ the correct implant and the appropriate augmentation technique for the specific needs of each patient.

Women now have a choice in Breast Augmentation regarding the type of breast implant. Breast implants have a silicone shell that is filled with either silicone gel or salt-water solutions known as saline. The FDA approved silicone gel implants that are available today and are constructed of a “cohesive” elastic-type of semi-solid gel that feels, looks and moves much like normal breast tissue.

Unlike older silicone implants, these “new” silicone implants do not leak throughout the body or deflate if ruptured. Currently, silicone implants are FDA approved for women over age 22. Silicone gel implants have been extensively studied,making them one of the most researched medical devices in history.The overwhelming body of medical literature has demonstrated the safety and efficacy of silicone implants.
