Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is one of the most commonly requested procedures in the United States. Women choose to have a breast augmentation for many different reasons, the most common being the desire for an enhanced feminine shape. Breast augmentation can also restore the volume that is often lost with age, after pregnancy, or from significant weight loss.

Women with asymmetrical or underdeveloped breasts often choose to undergo breast augmentation because while breast augmentation increases volume, it also improves the overall shape of the breast.

Dr. Anoush Hadaegh is a board certified plastic surgeon with more than 15 years of experience, and his attention to detail is second to none. During your consultation with Dr. Hadaegh, you will discuss the various breast augmentation options available. Dr. Hadaegh takes into consideration your body type, lifestyle, desired look.

Some women choose to have other procedures in combination with their breast augmentation. Common procedures to combine with a breast augmentation include liposuction, abdominoplasty, or breast lift.
