For many women in the Greater San Francisco Bay area looking to increase their breast size; the most requested and successful option for enlarging ones breasts is with the use of silicone breast implants or saline breast implants. This plastic surgery procedure not only increases the size of a woman's breasts, but can also improve the firmness and shape of the breasts as well.

Risk of Complication

Many women around San Francisco Bay choose to increase their breast size and sometimes even combine their breast augmentation with a "breast lift" to counter the effects of age, gravity and child birth.

You should also advise your cosmetic doctor of any medication and food allergies, any prolonged illnesses, previous operations (cosmetic or not), and medications (prescribed, herbal or over-the-counter) so that he can get a better idea of your overall health and help him determine the type of procedure that will best suit your needs.

Implant Procedure

Your San Francisco Bay plastic surgeon can then create a pocket to hold the implant under the muscle or just under the skin, depending on what was decided on prior to surgery.
