For a lot of women in America, breast size is one of the most important factors affecting self-image. Breast size plays such an important role in feeling desirable and normal as a woman, it’s no surprise that breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures every year.
Improving self esteem is probably the most important reason to have breast augmentation. Many women don’t realize what a life-changing experience breast augmentation can be until they have the procedure done and see their results.
You do have a right to feel better about yourself, and if a breast augmentation can make you feel more empowered, feminine, and sexy then why not?
At Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Oklahoma City, we use silicone or saline implants in breast augmentation, with different options for implant size, type, and shape.
As two types of implant are available, Dr. Nuveen will explain the benefits of each to you during your consultation. Generally speaking, silicone implants have a more natural feel, but are more expensive. An MRI may also be required to detect any issues that arise later in the life of the implant. Saline implants are filled after they are placed in the body and are less expensive. Any saline implant issues are usually easier to detect without an MRI.
When making this decision, it’s important that you are certain you are choosing a size that YOU can live with. Since sizes vary, we can not guarantee a certain cup size but we will do our best to get you to your goal.
During your consultation we will give you implants to try on so you can see how a certain size will look once the implant is in place. We want your main focus to be on what the end result will look like and to not be hung up on a cup size or implant size.

The armpit incision is a good option if you begin with smaller breasts and have very little droop. Sometimes you may benefit most from the incision being on the fold beneath the breast which will help to elevate your nipple position best. You may choose to have your incision around your areola (nipple area), however this area tends to leave the most noticeable scar when used with a large breast implant due to stretching. Another disadvantage to the areola incision is there is an increased risk of loss of sensation in the area.
