    Breast Augmentation Procedure

    Love my results with Cummings Plastic Surgery!Misty

    Dr. Cummings traditionally performs the breast augmentation procedure by making a tiny incision (about one inch long) on the underside of the breast. Dr. Cummings then places the implant behind the chest muscle for natural-appearing breasts with good cleavage. This means the patient can still have mammograms, breast biopsies, and even breast surgery, if it is ever necessary, because the implant is not in the breast. Also, women who wish to breastfeed are able to do so.

    Breast augmentation with implants is performed under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis. The procedure typically takes about an hour to complete.
