Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure that uses implants to enlarge and shape the breasts. Many women who choose to have breast enhancement surgery do so to improve their self-image. Some feel dissatisfied because their breasts never developed to a size that meets their expectations, while others look to bring balance to a breast that is somewhat smaller than the other. Often, women look to breast implants to restore their natural breast volume, which may have decreased as a result of pregnancy, weight loss or aging.

WHAT WOMEN NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BREAST IMPLANTS AND BREAST IMPLANT SURGERY
Dr. Mazaheri has used silicone implants on many satisfied women who agree that that they feel very similar to natural breast tissue. There are several things that are considered when deciding how to insert the breast implants and where they should be placed. Some factors include anatomy, desired outcome, implant size, and quality of the breast tissue.
Dr. Mazaheri prefers to place the implant under the muscle, behind the breast, as there are several advantages to doing so.
Specially trained in surgical techniques for breast implants, Dr. Mazaheri uses one of the following breast implant surgery techniques, according to the individual needs of each patient:
Sub glandular placement puts the breast implant right behind the breast, but in front of the chest wall.
SEMI OR PARTIAL SUB-MUSCULAR
Semi or partial sub muscular placement positions the implant behind the breast and partially in the chest muscle wall. With sub muscular breast implant surgery, the breast implant is placed directly behind the breast while the other part of the implant is imbedded in the chest wall. The pectoral muscle is cut so that part of the implant can be inserted under the muscle.
COMPLETE OR FULL SUB-MUSCULAR
Many favor complete, or full sub muscular, implant placement. Here, the breast implant is placed completely behind the chest wall muscle. Full sub muscular surgery tends to produce more natural looking and feeling results.
