Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a popular procedure for women who are longing for larger, more voluminous breasts. Dr. Harrington offers both silicone and saline breast implants and can help you determine which type and size of implant is right for you. Her surgical skills and years of experience have helped her develop a fine-tuned aesthetic judgment, which guides her in producing the best possible aesthetic results through customized treatment plans.

Prior to the procedure, Dr. Harrington and her staff will carefully examine the anatomy of your chest and identify your aesthetic wishes. Next, Dr. Harrington will work with you to develop a unique treatment plan by discussing your breast augmentation treatment options, including:

  • Type of implants
  • Implant placement (behind the breast tissue or under the pectoral muscle)
  • Type of incision

How Do I Determine if Breast Augmentation Is Right for Me?

Breast augmentation has helped many women treat a wide range of aesthetic concerns, including:

  • Small breasts
  • Sagging breasts due to age, pregnancy or weight loss
  • Asymmetrical breasts (one breast larger than the other)
  • Mastectomy (breast removal)
  • Low self-esteem

The choice to undergo breast implant surgery is a personal decision that varies from one individual to another. Dr. Harrington truly cares about the well-being of her patients. She strives to provide the best possible solution to your concerns and produce aesthetically pleasing results that improve appearance and restore self-confidence.
