A breast augmentation procedure involves the placement of implants to enhance the shape and size of a woman’s breasts. When performing this type of surgery in Tampa, Florida, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald customizes each procedure based on his patient’s anatomy and aesthetic goals. Educated and trained at Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and the University of Chicago, Dr. Greenwald has been performing breast augmentation and other cosmetic surgery procedures for more than two decades. He helps each patient achieve her desired result by offering sound guidance and personalized advice.
One way Dr. Greenwald does this is by discussing the several different types of breast implants, as well as various options regarding their size, shape, profile, and placement. Before recommending a specific procedure for a patient, Dr. Greenwald will take a step back and thoroughly review these options as well as the patient’s expectations to determine whether they are realistic and can be achieved through surgery. If so, Dr. Greenwald can recommend the appropriate type of breast augmentation procedure based on several unique factors, such as the patient’s:
- Current breast base width
- Current breast tissue
- Body frame
Following a consultation with Dr. Greenwald, if a patient elects to proceed with a breast augmentation procedure, she and Dr. Greenwald can discuss the best surgical approach for her. While Dr. Greenwald performs several different surgical techniques, he often recommends the inframammary approach, in which an incision is made – and hidden – in the inframammary crease at the base of the breast. The incision is used to create a pocket behind the breast tissue for the placement of the implant.
