Breast augmentation is a procedure where the breast is enhanced in both size and shape. The predominant way to perform the breast enhancement is to place an implant. More commonly, we're starting to use the patient's own fat cells to also augment the breast in terms of contouring the shape and adding volume. The best candidate for breast augmentation that we see are the middle 20 to middle 40-ish-year-old women who've had children and have lost volume in their breast. The standard breast augmentation procedure takes between an hour and an hour and 15 minutes. And it's always a nice thing to see when they come back with a smile on their face and thank me. And I always thank them for being good patients, because if they weren't good patients, it wouldn't have worked as well. So it's a team approach that we'll a good job on our surgery, and if they do a good job with behaving during recovery and following the rules, things will work out well.
