Dr. Hoffman offers breast augmentation with and without breast implants for his Palo Alto and San Jose patients. Before your procedure, you will meet with Dr. Hoffman and he can help you determine which procedure will best meet your goals. Considerations you will need to discuss include:
When considering breast enlargement, San Jose and Palo Alto women should choose a surgeon they can trust to help you make these decisions. In addition to his Stanford training and his reputation for achieving beautiful results for his patients, Dr. Hoffman has a warm and approachable manner, which will help you to speak honestly about your goals and feel confident and prepared going into surgery.
Breast enlargement may be performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Hoffman will determine the most advantageous location for the incision: under the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit. Through this incision, Dr. Hoffman will place the breast implant which may contain either silicone gel or saline (sterile salt water). During your consultation, Dr. Hoffman will discuss your implant options and together you will determine which implant type is right for you. Your implants will be placed either underneath or above the pectoral muscle.
You will see a difference in the size and shape of your breasts immediately after your breast enlargement surgery. As initial swelling fades over the course of a few weeks, your results will continue to refine. You will need to rest for the first 24 to 48 hours after your surgery and may experience some soreness. You should be able to resume normal activity after approximately 2 weeks, when directed by Dr. Hoffman.
Breast augmentation is a popular way for San Jose women to achieve larger, shapelier breasts. This surgery may also correct the appearance and placement of nipples and areolas. Many women gain enhanced self-confidence after their procedure and feel like they finally have the breasts that they have always wanted.
