Breast Augmentation Near Huntington Beach
Breast Augmentation Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery (or enlargement) is generally performed on women with underdeveloped breasts or on women who have experienced a decrease in breast size or shape due to pregnancy or weight loss.
The surgery consists of lifting the breast tissue and placing an envelope containing a soft, natural-feeling implant material underneath the pectoral muscle.
Dr. Chugay uses the Rolls Royce of saline implants – the type of natural-feeling durable implants of the highest quality. These implants carry a lifetime warranty for the implant and on any possible rupture or defect. They have the lowest defect statistics on the market (7% leak rate noted). Replacement within the warranty period is free. Saline solution is the safest material as it is similar to natural body fluids.
Dr. Chugay chooses to perform the majority of his breast augmentations near Garden Grove, approximately 70% of them, with silicone implants. Silicone implants have a much more natural feel and have been demonstrated to have a very low leak rate (1% leak rate noted). Despite previous litigation against breast implant manufacturers, as of November 2006 the FDA has again approved silicone implants for use in breast augmentation.
Dr. Chugay’s philosophy is to select the best and the safest materials for his patients. Whether you would prefer to have saline or silicone implants, Dr. Chugay will customize your surgery to give you the best result possible.
