Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or breast enhancement, is one of the most personal decisions you will ever make for your body.

Do you dream of a larger bust size? Wish for a perkier profile? Desire a more youthful shape?

All are achievable with breast augmentation or breast reshaping surgery performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Kahler. Dr. Kahler takes an artistic approach and uses the latest surgical techniques to create a natural-looking result that you will love.

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation involves using breast implants or the transfer of fat to increase the size of your breasts and improve breast shape and symmetry. Women of all ages who have smaller breasts, as well women who have lost volume and shape due to pregnancy or weight loss, can gain confidence from this cosmetic surgery procedure.

During surgery, the implants you select with Dr. Kahler’s help during your consultation will be placed and positioned for optimal appearance and symmetry. General anesthesia is commonly used. You will see a difference in breast size and shape immediately, and your incisions will heal and fade over time. You will be able to go home after the procedure.

Saline breast implants are solid silicone shells filled with saline (sterile salt water). They come in a variety of sizes and profiles to help you achieve the look you want.

During your consultation, Dr. Kahler will use his expertise to help you carefully choose the implants that will help fulfill your aesthetic goals.

 The FDA has approved the use of third generation silicone gel implants, which have several advantages that Dr. Kahler will explain. He also offers the most recent FDA-approved “cohesive” silicone implants.

Dr. Kahler chooses Mentor breast implants because of their effectiveness in achieving an optimal result, as well as their reputation of safety and longevity.
