As a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon Dr. Roger J. Oldham, board certified plastic surgeon, is primarily concerned with the personal satisfaction and self-esteem of his patients. Throughout his 25+ years of care to patients all around Bethesda, Maryland, Dr. Oldham has performed countless breast surgery procedures. Patients often visit Dr. Oldham with questions about which breast surgery option is best for them: breast augmentation (with implants), breast lift (without implants), and combined breast lift and augmentation (with implants). In the first of this three-part blog series, Dr. Oldham will answer your questions about breast augmentation surgery.
Breast augmentation, or breast implant surgery, with Dr. Roger J. Oldham is a very popular procedure. For the previous decade, in fact, breast augmentation has been the most popular surgery among women in the United States. Dr. Oldham has been happy to provide care for these women who feel dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Using either saline or silicone implants, both of which have been rigorously tested and thoroughly approved by the FDA, Dr. Oldham is able to augment the size of the breasts. Through an incision under the natural fold of the breast, Dr. Oldham accesses an area behind the chest muscle wall to secure the implant. The larger, more shapely augmented breasts serve well to hide any post-operative scars which are always minimized through plastic surgery techniques, as seen in these patients before and after breast augmentation surgery with Dr. Roger J. Oldham.
