Many women are unhappy with the size, shape, or firmness of their breasts. Full, natural looking breasts are appealing and attractive, and achieving lovelier breasts can profoundly impact feelings of self-confidence.
At Athenix Body Sculpting Institute in Fresno, we have various breast augmentation procedures that could be implemented, based upon the individual’s specific body shape and anatomy. Our skilled, board-certified plastic surgeons can transform a woman’s appearance by creating fuller, rounder, natural-looking breasts.
How Breast Augmentation Can Help
Breasts come in all shapes and sizes, and different women need different solutions. Our skilled body sculpting, board-certified plastic surgeons have a variety of procedures at their disposal to meet each woman’s unique needs. We can correct a range of cosmetic flaws, including:
Although some smaller-breasted women are satisfied with the breasts that nature gave them, others may feel embarrassed or unhappy with the small size of their breasts. Many patients have told us how much more self-confident they felt after breast augmentation surgery is complete. Standard clothing sizes fit better, and they are able to wear revealing clothing such as bikini tops or plunging necklines with confidence.
Our skilled cosmetic surgeons provide two basic options for breast augmentation. We can tailor saline or silicone gel filled implants for your unique anatomy to achieve beautiful, natural looking breasts. We can also perform natural fat transfer breast augmentation, beginning with micro-body contouring to remove excess fatty tissue from selected areas, which is then injected, using a special process, to enhance the size of your breasts. This procedure can produce soft, smooth, natural-looking breasts with less risk than using implants.
Many women who start out with high, perky breasts are dismayed when they begin to sag after weight loss, pregnancy, breast feeding, or advancing age. If you have downward facing areolas, pendulous or sagging breasts, or loss of firmness or volume, our surgeons can perform a custom tailored breast lift procedure in which excess skin is removed and breasts are lifted and tightened. This procedure, which changes dimension and gives you perkier breasts, can be combined with breast augmentation if both procedures will achieve the results you are envisioning.
A slight difference in the size of woman’s breasts is not uncommon, but a noticeable difference in size from one breast to another can have be embarrassing. Uneven breasts are a common cosmetic concern among women.
Fortunately, there are various options available to correct the problem. The smaller breast can be made larger with breast augmentation or the larger breast can be made smaller with a breast reduction procedure. When you come into our clinic for a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon, we can determine the best procedure for achieving symmetrical breasts for your particular case.
Although breast implants are designed to be highly durable and may last for decades, eventually they will wear out and need to be replaced. The most common reason for replacing implants is when an older breast implant product has developed ruptures. In other cases, the woman chooses to change the size or shape of the implants.
Newer implants are superior in that they come in more sizes and shapes, and our surgeons are not only skilled in the various breast implant procedures, but have an eye for beauty, and can advise you on what style, shape and size would suit your body type. Some women may choose to replace saline implants with more silicone gel implants due to the natural feel these provide. Whatever your reasons for replacing breast implants, our breast surgeons will carefully plan the procedure for removal of old implants, and replace them with new implants to rejuvenate your breasts, and resolve any problems the old implants may be causing.

Breast Implants and Patient Safety
At Athenix in Fresno, we use Natrelle® saline and silicone gel-filled breast implants because of the added safety it provides our patients. Natrelle® silicone gel-filled breast implants are among the most studied FDA-approved medical devices in existence.
There have been hundreds of peer-reviewed studies and published reports involving silicone gel implants, including robust epidemiological studies supporting their use. The Institute of Medicine of the National Academies (IOM) concluded in its landmark report (IOM, 1999) that “a review of the toxicology studies of silicones and other substances known to be in breast implants does not provide a basis for health concerns.”
