Breast Augmentation With Dr. Bernard Salameh
Breast augmentation refers to a type of cosmetic surgery in which a silicone or saline breast implant is placed behind the tissue of the breast or beneath the chest muscle to add size, shape, and fullness to the breast. Breast augmentation in Bowling Green, KY is a very common procedure that can be performed as soon as the breasts are fully developed. This procedure is often used to make smaller breasts appear larger, correct the balance of asymmetrical breasts or restore fullness to the breasts that have diminished due to age or pregnancy.
Breast Augmentation is done in-office under comfortable sedation and twilight anesthesia. The procedure takes less than an hour and patients walk out of the office shortly after with minimal pain and faster recovery time.
