Over 300,000 breast implants were performed last year. This breast augmentation video shows breast implant before and after pictures of patients operated on by board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Matthew Galumbeck.
Dr. Galumbeck discusses the many options for women to achieve the size and shape they want. Options for breast augmentation include the choice of saline or silicone breast implants as well as the size of the implant.
Other options for patients considering breast augmentation include incision site, implant shape, implant projection, and implant placement.
This video also discusses the quick recovery time after endoscopic breast augmentation.

From Galumbeck Plastic Surgery this is new techniques in cosmetic surgery.
How does breast augmentation bring that more into proportion that women might have more fullness as this.
Well breast augmentation, it allows them to have better proportion more cleavage more fullness without giving them an operated look. A lot of options that we offer women to give them the look and shape that they want. You can see from size of the implant, location of the incisions, location of the implant.
It’s up to them, lot of options that when you combine can usually get women into the shape and proportion that they want. Recovery time is fairly quick but most women are back to work in just two days after breast augmentation. We use saline implants and they don’t interfere with breast feeding, mammograms, breast self examination.
Here’s a picture of a woman that we did a breast augmentation. You can see in her before picture that she doesn’t have a lot of shape a lot of proportion. She wants more cleavage and more fullness. In her after picture you can see that she’s got more fullness more cleavage better proportion; more fullness but not top heavy that she’s got an operated look.
This is a before and after picture of a patient that I operated on and you can see in her before picture that she doesn’t have very good shape she doesn’t have a lot of fullness above the nipple. She hollows out on the side, doesn’t have a lot of projection that is more noticeable on the side view, but even on the front view she doesn’t have a lot cleavage. By doing a breast augmentation on her using an implant that she selected, we were able to give her a better look, a better shape but, not an operated look. She still has the proportion with the rest of her body but it is not overly done. She says you know since I had the surgery done, I feel I can fit into clothes better, I have a better shape, and better balance.
Well she does look so much prettier too because women tend to get such a deficiency around the chest and this gives that fullness back. I can see how that would make them look more proportional in bathing suits.
Now her incision we did underneath the breast so when they choose that incision it is unseen. Unless woman actually lifts up her breasts she can’t see the scar at all. The incision is a small. I use an endoscope which is a specialized TV camera during the procedure so we can make incisions smaller and we don’t need to use drains afterwards. Recovery is pretty quick. Most women are back to work in just a few days They feel a little sore but that is really about it. No medical restrictions and their often up and around as soon as they want.
Here is another picture of a lady that we did and you can see similar to the first one, she doesn’t have a good proportion, she doesn’t have a lot of fullness, and she wanted a better shape, fit into clothes better. So with her we did a breast augmentation.
You can see in her postoperative picture that she has a better shape, better cleavage, and better proportion without having operated look.
This woman her body habitus is different than the other lady so she chose a different size implant she has a different location for the incision around the nipple at the bottom of the nipple where the color change is. A lot of woman like that because they say, you know because the color change the scar seem hidden very well, so a lot of women like going there as well, and so again by having different options women can really pick and choose what they want what they feel comfortable with and I think if they are comfortable with the procedure with the whole process it just makes them feel more comfortable about the result.
She looks absolutely beautiful if I can tell by her picture she’s very petite but the size implants that she chose are so complementary to her body and I think she just looks fabulous. She has to feel so wonderful about that.
