Breast Augmentation

“ Breast Augmentation transforms the body and lifts the spirit unlike any other cosmetic procedure.”  Dr. Kim

Are you searching for the best breast implant? You should really be looking for the best breast surgery. This is achieved through the intricate balance of artistic vision, thoughtful analysis and surgical precision. Many years of experience and hundreds of breast surgeries have refined Dr. Kim’s unique technique and artistic approach to breast augmentation.

Why you should choose Dr. Kim for your breast surgery

  • Exact pre-operative analysis ensures consistently good results.

  • Dr. Kim modifies desired amounts of upper pole fullness and breast closeness (cleavage) according to patient’s desires.
  • Meticulous post-operative care personally provided by Dr. Kim.
  • Direct access to Dr. Kim via cell phone following your procedure.

Incisions are made to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, in the breast crease, around the nipple, or in the armpit. Breast tissue and skin is lifted to create a pocket for each implant.

The breast implant may be inserted directly under breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle.

After surgery, breasts appear fuller and more natural in tone and contour. Scars will fade with time.

Many other surgeons focus mainly on implant size. Less artistic approaches to breast surgery restrict the type and size of implant for certain body shapes. Dr. Kim of Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center LLC feels that breast implant size is only part of the formula for success. He believes that shaping of implant pockets is equally important. Every patient is unique in their desired breast shape and size. Dr. Kim uses his experience to create the desired cup size with the proper balance of fullness and cleavage for the patient.

Silicone or Saline? At Gold Coast Plastic Surgery and Laser Center half of our patients prefer silicone and the other half saline implants. Each implant type has specific advantages. Dr. Kim feels that silicone implants have a more natural appearance and feel. If the possibility of visible rippling is a concern, silicone implants are preferred. However, silicone implants are more expensive and patients require closer, long term follow up mandated by the FDA. The patients who choose saline implants often want the shorter incision, fuller appearance and lower cost. Also, since the latest generation saline implants have been available longer, more women have friends or relatives with saline implants. They are more comfortable knowing that someone close to them has had a good experience with saline implants.

When you have your consultation with Dr. Kim, he will allow you to choose the location of the incision for implant placement. He is experienced in using breast crease (inframammary fold), nipple (periareolar) and armpit (axillary) incisions. During the surgery, Dr. Kim prefers to place implants under the chest (pectoralis) muscle. This placement improves breast appearance and decreases scar or capsule formation. However, he also performs breast augmentation above the muscle (subglandular breast augmentation) according to an individual patient’s body type and desires. Meticulous and gentle technique ensures optimal results with minimal recovery.

Finally, Dr. Kim performs your post-operative evaluation and care himself to ensure proper healing and results. Unlike many of his colleagues, Dr. Kim provides you direct access to his cell phone following your procedure.
