EKicons_BreastAugmentation

Breast augmentation increases the size and enhances the shape of a woman’s breasts through the use of saline or silicone prosthetic implants.

 

The breast augmentation procedure is used to enlarge breasts that are naturally small or to restore and improve the appearance and fullness of breasts that have become smaller or sag after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss or aging.

 

IDEAL IMPLANT 

The Ideal implant is the newest implant that combines the safety of saline with the more natural feel of silicone. The implant has multiple shells (think of Russian nesting dolls), nestled within the outer thicker shell. This allows the saline to be distributed amongst different compartments, creating a baffle effect- like a waterbed. So instead of one bag of saline there are multiple compartments, which create a more natural feel to the implant. This is called a structured implant, due to the compartments, but maintains the safety of saline.

Silicone Implants

Like saline implants, silicone implants are also made with an elastomer silicone shell, but they are filled with a silicone gel.  The latest generation of silicone implants are filled with a thicker gel, modeled to look and feel like a natural breast.  These implants are soft to the touch and, over time, they maintain their teardrop shape very well for a natural appearance.  Like saline implants, these implants are also usually placed under the chest muscle. Various shapes and sizes of silicone implants are available, giving patients the best possible fit and contour.

 

Saline Implants

Saline implants are made with an elastomer silicone shell filled with a sterile saline solution.  They are usually placed under the pectoral muscle.  Saline implants can be either round or more teardrop shaped.

 

Recovery

Recovery times have improved greatly over the years due to advances in technology and improvements in surgical techniques.  Dr. Kerner will discuss the details of the procedure and options that are best suited for you during your consultation.

I would trust her with any cosmetic surgery

I have had a breast augmentation and partial lift with Dr. Kerner and I had great results. The scarring is fantastic and you can tell she took such care when she made incisions (You could barely see the scar at 4 months!-NO JOKE!). I have recommended her to three people I know so far and would trust her with any cosmetic surgery I needed.

I couldn’t be happier!

Dr. Kerner is amazing!! She listens and strives to really understand what you want. She had me bring in pictures and really tried to understand what I wanted aesthetically. She is very honest and realistic and will let you know if what you want can or cannot be achieved. She spends time with you, and doesn't make you feel rushed. Her technique is fantastic! I got exactly what I wanted from my breast augmentation and liposuction with minimal discomfort and scarring. I couldn't be happier!

Terrific surgeon!

I went to see two other plastic surgeons regarding breast augmentation, both males. They both urged me to aim for larger and larger implants. As a runner and a workout junkie, I wanted smaller implants that would be more proportionate and fit my lifestyle. Dr. Kerner was the only one of the three who listened to my wishes and asked me to bring a lot of pictures to show her what I wanted. I knew that we were on the same page, and I love my new look! I enjoyed every aspect of my surgery and follow-up with Dr. Kerner and her wonderful staff, and I'm happy to recommend her to others.

I would recommend her to anyone

… I had a breast aug and a lollipop lift on 1 breast, Scarring is barely even there. She takes good care of you after the surgery too as far as check ups go. I have also had her do some Botox. I would recommend her to anyone. First she lets you bring a bra, you'd like to fit in, and takes it into the surgery room to see if it fits (sterilized of course), she also has pictures pinned up everywhere so she gets it as close to what you want! She's great!
