Reasons Women Have Breast Augmentation
Age, hereditary, weight loss, pregnancy, and breast-feeding can cause changes in women’s breasts. Women with small, uneven, or sagging chests can feel self-conscious about their bodies. Breast augmentation restores breasts, creates symmetry, and in many women increases their self-confidence. Breast augmentation is a very popular, safe, and effective body enhancement procedure.
Patients can be assured that Dr. Greg Chernoff’s years of experience and innovative breast implantation surgical technique can reshape and enhance your breasts so the results look natural!
What Is a Breast Augmentation?
A breast augmentation (“boob job”) procedure, or mammoplasty, augments your breast size, texture and shape. Dr. Chernoff will discuss with you the various implants available and assist in selecting the one most suitable for you.
A mammoplasty shouldn’t be confused with a mastopexy (breast lift). A mastopexy corrects the breast position without altering size in any way. This technique can be utilized to uplift sagging breasts after breast-feeding, dieting, or premature aging.
Are You A Candidate For Breast Augmentation
Many women are troubled by the size and/or shape of their breasts. Small and sagging breasts can make women feel uncomfortable and embarrassed. Women often mention that they have trouble buying clothes and don’t like how they look in clothes, especially bathing suits and form-fitting clothes. Some of the reasons to consider breast augmentation include:
- Small and sagging breasts
- A desired improvement in the symmetry of breasts
- One breast is larger than the other
- Recent weight loss or gain aging of the breast
- Breast changes after pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Recent mastectomy
- A desire to achieve a more youthful and shapely appearance
- Better fitting clothes to enhance self-confidence
- Gender affirmation patients (Surgical Services)
During your initial consultation, a detailed medical and surgical history will be taken, and all potential benefits and complications of breast enhancement surgery will be discussed with you. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Chernoff to discuss your breast augmentation and shaping goals.

How Is A Breast Augmentation Performed?
Breast augmentation is performed under light general anesthetic in an accredited outpatient surgical facility. On average, the procedure takes 2 hours. The surgical technique Dr. Chernoff uses involves a small incision in the underside crease of the breast. Dr. Chernoff prefers this technique because once healed, the incision is not visible. After the incision is made, a pocket is created beneath the chest wall muscle or in the breast tissue. Dr. Chernoff places the breast implant under the muscle to create the most natural appearance. The previously selected size and texture of the breast implant are securely positioned in the pocket and small stitches are used to close the incision.
Dr. Chernoff’s surgical technique keeps incisions to a minimum and is concealed under the natural crease of the breast.
Which Breast Implant Type is Right for Me?
Breast implants are regulated by the FDA and are medical devices that are implanted under the breast tissue or chest muscle to increase breast size (augmentation) or to replace breast tissue. There are many types of breast implants that offer patients a natural feel and results.
In the United States, there are two types of breast implants approved for use in patients: saline-filled and silicone gel-filled. Both types have a silicone outer shell. They vary in size, shell thickness, shell surface texture, and shape (contour). Dr. Chernoff will review your options with you and discuss which implant will achieve your breast enhancement goals.

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our "Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery". The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.
