Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a very common cosmetic surgical procedure that enhances the shape and size of the breast through the use of breast implants or your own fat.
As an all female plastic surgery team, Dr. Klenke understands an individual’s motivation to undergo breast augmentation. Ultimately, patients choose to undergo breast augmentation to feel better about the way they look and feel, and our team takes great pride in helping our patients achieve those goals.

The best candidates for Breast Augmentation are individuals who are healthy, live an active lifestyle, and have realistic expectations. If you are seeking a fuller bust line, have experienced post-pregnancy breast changes or significant weight loss, or simply want to improve your look, breast augmentation may be ideal for you.
As you are preparing to come in to discuss surgery, we encourage you to think carefully about your expectations and to save your “wish” photos of patients who have a similar body shape/size as you to your TouchMD account. This is a secure place for you to communicate with our office and learn more about what our practice offers.
Breast augmentation is performed under general anesthesia or deep sedation. The approach of inserting and the placement of your implant will depend on our recommendation and your anatomy.
The incision may be made either where the breast meets the chest wall, around the areola, or sometimes even through an up-and-down vertical incision if you are simultaneously undergoing a breast lift or “mastopexy”.
Every effort is made to ensure that the resulting scar will be as inconspicuous as possible. The surgery typically takes from one to two hours on average. Click here to learn more about Fat Grafting as an option for breast enhancement.
There are currently two main types of breast implants: saline and silicone. Both implant types have been rigorously researched and tested for safety. While both silicone and saline implants can achieve the desired results, there are differences between the two. During your consultation, Drs. Klenke and Cazorla will help you decide what makes the most sense for you.
After surgery, you will likely feel tired and sore, but you will be up and walking right away. The majority of patients experience swelling and bruising that subsides in several weeks. Returning to work depends on the level of activity required by your job, but most patients take a week to relax at home and heal.
Your surgeon will see you in the days following surgery to follow your healing progress. Regular breast imaging is recommended based on your age and level of risk. Special views called Eklund views can be performed during mammography to ensure the breast tissue is properly evaluated even with implants in place.
For many patients, the result of breast augmentation is exciting even early in the healing process because the change is immediately apparent.
