The Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation offers a way to enhance the size, shape, and projection of the breasts. Thee procedure can help to bring balance to a person’s figure and can help to reduce feelings of insecurity due to the appearance of the person’s breasts.
Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States. Dr. Volpe performs this procedure in the hospital with anesthesia as this allows the safest environment with the lowest possible risk of complications.
There are two types of breast implants- saline breast implants (saline is sterile water with a dash of salt equal to the normal concentration of the body) and silicone gel implants. There are different advantages with each implant type. Click here to learn more about the differences between saline and silicone implants.
Breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift procedure if you have noticed considerable sag and loss of breast volume after pregnancy or weight loss. It is also a useful technique for correction of asymmetries of the breasts.

The Breast Augmentation Consultation
During your initial consultation, you and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Volpe will discuss all of your options, from sizes to implant types. Dr. Volpe prefers to place implants behind the muscle in most cases.
The most popular type of implant shape is the smooth round type which gives a full natural look. Scars can be hidden under the breast, along the areola, or occasionally in the armpit. A typical consultation lasts about an hour in which we will review your body frame, your desires, and all of your options. Bring lots of questions. We will also discuss all the pros and cons of your various options and also the risks of surgery.
Are Breast Implants Right for Me?
Patients often ask about the safety of gel-filled implants. Numerous studies support the safety of breast implants, whether saline filled or silicone gel filled. At Volpe Plastic Surgery in Boston, we only use FDA-approved breast implants manufactured in the United States.
Choosing the correct size for you is a very important part of your consultation. There are many factors to consider when choosing a size including your height and weight, shoulder width and chest frame, the size of your existing breasts and of course, the size you want to be.
To determine the best size for you, our team uses silicone sizers which we have found to be the most helpful and accurate method. Dr. Volpe will advise you and make recommendations. His most important job is to listen to you and understand the vision you have for your new figure.
