Enhance the size, contour, and overall appearance of your breasts
Many women are dissatisfied with small and/or misshapen breasts that fail to complement their figure. Dr. Kitto offers breast augmentation procedures to create larger, fuller, more beautiful breasts that enhance your overall appearance and self-esteem.
The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy, nursing, aging, weight loss, or who have undergone breast reconstruction and want to gain more natural-looking breasts again.
Breast augmentation involves making a small incision in inconspicuous places on the breast to minimize scar visibility. These areas may be located in the armpit, in the crease under the breasts, or on the dark skin around the nipples. After the incision, the breast is lifted, creating a pocket to insert the implants to enlarge the breasts.
There are two types of implants:
- Silicone implants - This type of implant is less likely to cause undesirable changes in the breast tissue. It delivers results that look and feel completely natural.
- Saline implants - Unlike silicone implants, saline implants are typically less expensive and require smaller incisions, although they’re more prone to rippling over time.
Many patients feel sore after the surgery, but this symptom is temporary and should subside after a few days. Any swelling and sensitivity will diminish over the first few weeks. Results will be visible immediately after your surgery, and will continue to improve over time, when residual swelling and bruising subside.

Breast augmentation is the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedure. It is a same day procedure and patients recover in the comfort of their homes. Most patients take pain medication for the first week.
All stitches after breast augmentation are internal and dissolvable.
Recovery after breast augmentation is fairly quick. Patients who have a desk job may return to work after a week. Patients are encouraged to refrain from heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for four weeks after surgery.
