Women may opt for breast enlargement for a variety of personal reasons: they may be under developed, have loss of breast tissue from breast feeding, aging, or to correct differences in the sizes of their breasts. Often weight loss, or the natural aging process, can change breast volume and shape.
Dr. Capla has recently begun utilizing a novel technique to help patients interested in breast augmentation better determine whether they are truly ready to undergo breast enhancement and what size they would like to be. In the office, Dr. Capla will inject normal saline into the breasts which will fill the breast envelope and provide a sense of what an implant would do. In just minutes, a patient can literally see the changes and feel what it would be like to have her breasts enhanced. Over the next 24 hours the saline will disappear and be absorbed by the body. For those patients who are certain that they would like breast implants Dr. Capla continue to utilize the traditional technique of gel sizers to aid in determining the desired appearance.
