As a specialist in cosmetic breast surgery, I perform a large number of breast augmentations. While over 300,000 breast augmentations were performed in the U.S. in 2011, not all of them were good ones. Breast Augmentations may appear easy to do, as evidenced by the countless poorly trained and inappropriate doctors trying to do this surgery. However, breast augmentation is very difficult to do really well and the revision rate for breast augmentation remains very high nationally. In my practice, I strive for natural-results, minimal complications, and a rapid recovery. I have created a technique for breast augmentation that I think helps me to achieve my goals. While perfection is impossible, I think I get pretty close.
My breast augmentations are performed using an ultra-short scar technique in which the incision is only slightly longer than an inch. The breast implants are then placed through this tiny incision using the aid of a Keller Funnel. This funnel helps to get the implant in through the small incision, but it also helps decrease complications such as infection, capsular contracture, and implant rupture.
I have also added Botox to my breast augmentations. Yes, you read that correctly. When done correctly, Botulinum toxin can be used to help achieve a more rapid and less painful recovery. I place very small amount of Botox into very specific areas of the chest muscle. This helps to relax the muscles, without interfering with the function of the chest muscles. The result is less pain and also a more rapid “settling” of the breast implants.
I created this short scar Botox-Assisted Breast Augmentation and truly believe it will revolutionize breast augmentation surgery. I have been performing this procedure for several years and have worked out specifically where to inject the toxin and how much toxin is needed. I have already read about other doctors utilizing this technique and in some cases, claiming it as their own. Aside from it being unprofessional for a doctor to purposefully mislead patients into thinking someone else’s procedure is theirs, it is also potentially dangerous to you the patient - incorrect injection of Botox can interfere with normal muscle function of the chest and arms, and incorrect dosing can potentially lead to toxicity and death.
