Redefine Your Curves and Confidence with Breast Augmentation

For individuals with naturally small or uneven breasts or those who have experienced a life event resulting in lost volume in their breasts, breast augmentation can be an ideal procedure to improve confidence, address cosmetic issues and create a balance in the body's natural curves. No other self-esteem boost compares to the one you will experience after breast augmentation. Even if you are not interested in having larger breasts, but simply want to refine your breast’s shape or appearance, a breast augmentation can provide the natural-looking feminine contours you desire. Breast augmentation has remained the number one plastic surgery procedure for several years for good reason—it can dramatically restore, reshape, rebuild or resculpt the breasts.

What is Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a procedure that involves utilizing implants or fat transfer to augment the size and shape of a woman’s natural breasts. This can include increasing breast size, correcting asymmetry between breasts or addressing a reduction in breast size after pregnancy. It is also a procedure utilized to rebuild breasts for women who have undergone a mastectomy, or breast removal.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to breast augmentation at Schaffer Plastic Surgery. There are many choices to be made on how to best accomplish the procedure, many relating to the type of implants, such as saline or silicone, shaped or round, profile options and their warranties. There are also important decisions to be made on whether to place the implant above or below the pectoral muscles. Dr. Schaffer will discuss these various options with you and offer expert suggestions on how to achieve the most natural-looking breasts possible.

Results of a Breast Augmentation

Every woman is unique, and so is her body. To achieve the best results, it is important to make sure a breast augmentation is unique and personalized as well. At Schaffer Plastic Surgery, your breast augmentation journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Schaffer to discuss the procedure and your goals. Taking into account your natural shape and curves, Dr. Schaffer will utilize his more than 20 years of experience and eye for aesthetics to personalize your procedure so that it will achieve the ideal breast size, shape and look for your body that will ultimately create a natural and elevated result.

For individuals seeking to reshape and combat sagging breasts, breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with a breast lift.

A breast augmentation can also help achieve the following goals:

  • Enhance overall curves of your body
  • Achieve the breast size and shape you desire
  • Correct asymmetry between breasts
  • Correct loss of breast tissue resulting from weight loss or pregnancy
  • Create a more even breast-to-hip ratio
  • Increase or elevate self-confidence
  • Reconstruct breasts following a mastectomy

Dr. Schaffer and his staff did an amazing job! Joely was my nurse and she was wonderful. She helped me make an informed decision. I went with the silicone naturelle gummier implants. They feel wonderful! I was extremely happy and amazed at my recovery time. I have a 2 year old so I was worried about how it would affect me, but there was no issues at all. I recently recommended my aunt.

After two children, I decided it was time to make some adjustments to my 'sad' situation. I visited a total of 4 surgeons (Houston, TX; Lafayette, LA; Atlanta; and another in Birmingham) before I found Dr. Schaffer. I thoroughly enjoyed both the experiences with his staff and him. My results are STUNNING. I could not be happier. 5 stars all the way!!!

I got my breast done in 2014 by doctor Chris Schaffer. He did a great job. The staff was great he was the best doctor I have ever worked with.

Dr. Schaffer did a breast augmentation and abdominoplasty almost 17 years ago on me at Kirkland clinic. I just turned 51 and I am still as happy now as I was then. It says a lot for someone's work when you still feel great with it after all of these years!

Kimberly M.

I would recommend Dr. Schaffer a million times over! He did an amazing job. I had gone to several plastic surgeons for consults and wasn't pleased. I drove out of state just to use him. The entire staff was incredible. They go they extra mile! They even sent a card in the mail to me with the signatures of the staff. So sweet

Moriah M,

Dr. Schaffer and his staff are absolutely amazing! I had breast augmentation on April 14th, 2017. Over the past month, Dr. Schaffer and his staff have taken very good care of me. I had some issues that were unexpected, unplanned for and were not anyone's fault, my body just didn't want to cooperate! Dr. Schaffer made sure that he did everything in his power to treat me properly and professionally take care of me. He even saw me in his office on a Saturday night, when he didn't have to! He took time away from his family and personal life to check on me, even calling my husband the next day to make sure all was good. In my eyes Dr. Schaffer and his staff have gone above and beyond for me and for that I greatly appreciate them! I would highly recommend him to anyone that asks!!

I had been wanting breast enhancement surgery for quite a while, went to lots of surgeons in the Tampa Bay area to try and find that one special dr. As soon as I met Dr. Schaffer I knew he would be the Dr. for me, I wanted the best of the best...And another bonus was the price, I would have paid any amount as long as the Dr. I went to was the right one for me. Dr. Schaffer asked me questions and also let me talk. He also was very informative and up to date, and he LISTENED to me, he gave me the results I asked for and I could not be any happier!! I get so many compliments on how great I look, I have also been approached by photographers for magazines and any girl I come across that like my new look asks me “who is your Dr. “ I look and feel like a million bucks! I would never ever go anywhere else. He has a great personality and Dr. Schaffer and his staff were always just a phone call away, they called me every day to check on me to see how I was doing after surgery! I had not one bruise and no pain!! His rapid recovery program for Breast Augmentation is amazing. So if you’re looking for the BEST at a good price, go see the lovely Dr. Schaffer. And I promise you will not be disappointed !!!!!!!!!! He is great…simply put.

Deciding on a Breast Augmentation

To achieve the most natural-looking results for your body, Dr. Schaffer recommends being at or near your target weight and in good health before undergoing a breast augmentation. It is important to consider timing to achieve and maintain the best results. For this reason, Dr. Schaffer does not recommend breast augmentation to women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding considering that these major life events often involve natural changes in the appearance of the breasts.

As with most surgical procedures, it is also important to consider recovery time. Because breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, you will be able to recover in the comfort of your own home. However, patients can expect some swelling and tenderness following the procedure and should allow time for their bodies to rest and recover. It is recommended that patients take off a few days from work following their breast augmentation and avoid lifting objects heavier than ten pounds so that their breasts can settle and soften into the optimal position. We also recommend having a loved one nearby to assist in more strenuous activities.
