What is Breast Augmentation?

Dr. Tantillo performs breast augmentation, also called breast enlargement, in his Boston area practice to enhance a woman's bust size. Using breast implants or excess body fat, Dr. Tantillo is able to create a more attractive breast shape and size so that his patients can feel more confident about their looks, both in and out of clothing.

In addition to type and size of breast implant, women have many other breast augmentation options. Dr. Tantillo is able to place incisions either under the breast, around the nipple, or in the armpit depending on your anatomy and the type of breast implant chosen. Breast implants are most commonly placed underneath the chest wall muscle, although some women choose to have the implants placed above the muscle.

For some women whose breasts are beginning to droop, breast augmentation also can improve the shape of the breasts to create a more youthful appearance. Dr. Tantillo offers a variety of other breast enhancement procedures that he can customize to give you the look you desire.

Who is a Candidate for Breast Enlargement?

In Boston, breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for women. While every woman has her own unique reasons, many of Dr. Tantillo's patients choose this procedure because:

  • They would like to have larger, fuller breasts
  • They feel their breast size is disproportionate to the rest of their body
  • Their breasts have lost volume after pregnancy, nursing, or significant weight loss
  • They want to even out the appearance of asymmetrical breasts (one larger than the other)

All women who choose breast augmentation must be aware of the risks and responsibilities associated with breast implants. During your consultation, Dr. Tantillo will carefully review these risks with you. He also provides a comprehensive health examination for all women who come to his office for a breast enhancement consultation.

Breast Augmentation Using Fat Transfer

Over the years, many of Dr. Tantillo's patients have asked, "Can't you just take some of the fat from down here and put it up there?" Well, now the answer is, "Yes!" Dr. Tantillo offers his patients breast augmentation using the micro fat grafting technique. He can remove unwanted fat from areas such as the abdomen, love handles, or thighs using liposuction. The fat is then prepared and transferred to the breasts through micro grafting.

Patients interested in liposuction and a modest breast augmentation or improvement of breast shape may by good candidates for fat transfer. Patients must wear a suction cup bra before and after the surgery in order to prepare the breast tissue to accept the fat graft. The recovery from the surgery is similar to the recovery from liposuction.

Recovery & Results

Breast enlargement is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning that you will be able to go home the day of surgery. Within the first week following breast augmentation you should be able to return to most of your normal activities, adding in exercise and other strenuous activities about 2 to 3 weeks after surgery.

Most women are very happy with the results of their breast enlargement and find their new figure invigorating. Imagine enjoying a newfound self-confidence in a variety of outfits including business attire, formal wear, casual clothing, as well as swimwear and even lingerie. A new look and outlook is possible with breast augmentation.
