Are you thinking of having breast augmentation? Johnny Chung, MD and Robert Kevitch, MD are Board Certified plastic surgeons in the Lehigh Valley who specialize in breast enlargement. Voted Lehigh Valley's 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013 "BEST COSMETIC SURGEONS" and "BEST SURGEON", you can trust the experience and integrity of our doctors. 

Who is a good candidate?
Women ages 18 and up, who are in good health, who seek to have fuller or larger breasts.

Augmentation is the most popular breast procedure performed. Women choose breast enlargement for various reasons, but it should not be taken lightly. Breast augmentation is a challenging procedure to perform particularly when attempting to create natural looking breasts.

Should I choose Saline or Silicone?
Currently both SALINE and SILICONE implants are available and approved by the FDA for primary augmentation. The FDA has also recent approved the following form stable implants: Mentor CPG, Allergan Style 410, Sientra. Drs. Chung and Kevitch are certified to use all FDA approved implants.

How is breast augmentation performed?
The incision can be placed either around the areola, in the breast fold, or in the armpit. Depending on how much native breast tissue you have, the implant can be placed either above or below your pectoralis (chest) muscle. Dr. Chung specializes in the endoscopic transaxillary technique which leaves "no scars" on the breast. The endoscopic transaxillary technique utilizes a small 3mm camera to assist with proper placement of the implants.

Breast augmentation requires surgical placement of breast implants to enhance breast size.  The most common incisions include an inframammary incision (near the crease under the breast), an axillary incision in the underarm area, or a periareolar incision placed at the edge of the areola.  Incision patterns vary based on the type of implant, degree of enlargement desired, patient anatomy, and patient and surgeon preference.

Through the incisions a pocket is created either directly behind the breast tissue or beneath the pectoralis muscle.  The implant is positioned within the pocket and incisions are closed with a layered, non-removable suture in the breast tissue and with sutures, skin adhesive or surgical tape to close the skin.  Implant placement, type and size will be determined based on the patient’s breast anatomy, body type, and desired increase in size, as well as our surgical judgment.

The results of breast augmentation are immediately visible.  Over time post-surgical swelling resolves and incision lines will refine.  Satisfaction with your enhanced body image should continue to grow as you experience the fulfillment of your goal for fuller breasts.

Breast implants have not been shown to impair breast health.  Careful review of scientific research by independent groups has found no proven link between breast implants and autoimmune or other systemic diseases in women.  Implants can, however, create subtle or more noticeable changes in the look and feel of the breasts.  Capsular contracture, a condition that causes the natural forming scar tissue around the breast implant to contract, occurs in a variable percentage of patients and can make the breasts feel firmer than normal.

The decision to undergo breast augmentation should be a personal one. As with any cosmetic procedure, breast augmentation will not resolve any of life's major problems, but may help to boost a patient's own body image and self-esteem. All the potential benefits will be discussed with our doctor at the time of your consultation.

Our doctors are currently enrolled in both Mentor's and Allergan's voluntary post-approval study. 

If you are interested or considering breast augmentation, please call our office for a consultation.
