A Breast Augmentation Tailored for You
While many doctors offer breast augmentation in our area, few can match Dr. Campanile’s commitment to a customized and satisfying result. Whether you seek a more noticeable augmentation or a subtle enhancement, Dr. Campanile will listen carefully to your goals so he can help you achieve exactly what you expect. He has experience using both saline and silicone gel breast implants for a more proportionate appearance. He offers several incision and implant placement methods for your unique anatomy. He also offers fat transfer breast augmentation for women interested in a natural alternative to breast implants.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Dr. Campanile offers fat transfer breast augmentation, also known as microfat grafting. This approach may be a good fit for women seeking a subtle boost to their breast volume using their own natural fat cells rather than implants. Women may also choose to fine-tune their breast implant results using fat transfer to soften their curves, increase cleavage or improve symmetry.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is a two-step procedure. First, Dr. Campanile performs liposuction to harvest fat cells from the patient. The hips tend to be a prime location for harvesting viable fat cells, as many women store some excess fat around the hips and may see the mild slimming effect of the procedure as an added bonus. However, if you prefer to use another donor area, you can discuss your options with Dr. Campanile.
Finally, Dr. Campanile transfers your body fat to your breasts using several small injections, carefully contouring the breasts. For patients seeking a more pronounced augmentation, an additional fat transfer procedure can be scheduled as early as six months after your initial surgery. Because fat transfer breast augmentation requires the use of fat cells from the patient, very thin women may see better results from breast enlargement using saline or silicone breast implants.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Dr. Campanile begins most breast augmentation procedures by making an incision in the fold of the breast where it connects to the chest wall (inframammary) or around each areola (periareolar). Through each incision, he creates a pocket for the selected implant and then positions the implant inside the breast. The pocket may be under the chest muscle or directly behind the breast tissue, depending on implant size and type and a patient’s goals and body shape. The incisions are then closed and bandaged before the patient is moved to the post-operative area to begin the recovery period. In most cases surgery is completed within 1 to 2 hours.
Enhancements Worth Considering
“Gummy Bear” Implants
Dr. Campanile is pleased to offer the Allergan Natrelle 410 silicone gel breast implant, more commonly known as the “gummy bear” breast implant due to the consistency of the silicone gel. This implant is manufactured to be shaped like a natural breast in a “teardrop” shape, with more silicone at the base of the breast and a gentle slope toward the top of the breast.
This implant type is available alongside other silicone gel models as well as saline breast implants. We are committed to offering all of the latest implant types for a wide range of choices. Dr. Campanile will review your individual goals and help you decide on the implant that’s the best match.
Combined Augmentation and Lift
A popular option for many of our patients is to combine breast augmentation with a breast lift. This combined procedure can create a more youthful look, particularly if your breasts have begun to sag following childbirth, weight loss or just due to a combination of gravity and time. Dr. Campanile can use the incisions he creates for the breast lift to insert breast implants, minimizing the appearance of scars after surgery. Another benefit of combining these procedures is that patients have only one recovery period. Women who choose fat transfer breast augmentation may also choose to combine their augmentation with a breast lift to achieve the most flattering profile.
