Breast implants are used to increase the size of the breasts. If you are happy with the shape of your breasts, but desire increased volume, breast augmentation with a breast implant may be a good choice. Cosmetic breast enhancement includes other breast procedures also. For overly large breasts, breast reduction is an option. For deflated breasts, breast augmentation and breast lifts are the preferred treatments. Many of these options are outlined in detail on the San Francisco Breast site.
Last month, on KRON4’s Body Beautiful, I had the opportunity to discuss cosmetic surgery of the breast. Below is an excerpt from my interview with the Bay Area’s News Station’s Vicki Liviakis. This segment includes more caller questions. Please note, the 800 number in the video was used exclusively as part of the live show.

Finding the Right Breast Augmentation Surgeon
If you are considering breast augmentation, be certain to review the benefits, and the risks, with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like myself, as part of your breast augmentation consultation appointment. If you have developed problems with your breast implants, a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is the best first step toward finding relief.
