Your breasts are closely related to your feelings of femininity and your body-image, so it can be disheartening when they don’t have the appearance you desire. Whether your breasts have never quite looked the way you want them to, or factors like aging and pregnancy have caused unwanted changes, breast augmentation can help.
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic plastic surgery procedure that can improve the appearance of your breasts using implants. Board certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist Dr. James Paine, Jr. has the skill, experience, and aesthetic eye needed to create the results you desire.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Hundreds of thousands of women undergo breast augmentation each year. In fact, this transformative surgery is consistently the most popular cosmetic procedure in America. That distinction comes as no surprise when you consider the numerous benefits that breast augmentation has to offer.
Typically, women experience the following benefits after having breast enhancement surgery:
- Larger, fuller breasts
- Increased breast projection
- Enhanced breast shape
- Improved breast symmetry
- Improved contour balance between breasts and hips
- Better fitting swimsuits and clothes
- Boosted self-confidence
Breast augmentation provides long-lasting results. It’s an ideal solution for achieving the beautiful figure that you desire.
Breast Augmentation Options
Naturally, you want your breast augmentation to accomplish your unique goals for your body. The results you want are not necessarily the same as what other women may want. That’s why Dr. Paine will work with you to create a completely individualized procedural plan.
There are a variety of breast augmentation options available. Each choice allows you to customize your procedure to suit your needs. Dr. Paine will help select the appropriate options to complement your breast shape, figure, lifestyle, and cosmetic preferences.
Your breast augmentation decisions include:
- Implant material (saline or silicone)
- Implant shape
- Implant size
- Implant profile
- Implant texture
- Implant placement
- Incision location
Ideal Breast Augmentation Candidates
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for breast augmentation is to schedule a professional consultation with Dr. Paine. During this one-on-one visit, he will take the time to understand your reasons for pursuing breast augmentation, answer your questions, and explain your options. Dr. Paine will also examine your breasts and inquire about your overall health to determine if this procedure is appropriate for you.
The qualifications listed below can give you a general idea of your candidacy for breast augmentation, but they are not a substitute for a consultation. Typically, candidates for this procedure:
- Are dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts
- Have a fully developed chest
- Are at least 18 years old for saline implants)
- Are at least 22 years old (for silicone implants)
- Are in good overall health
- Are not pregnant or breastfeeding
- Do not smoke or are willing to quit prior to surgery and during recovery
- Have realistic expectations for the procedure
While breast augmentation can help with mild sagging, it isn’t an effective solution for significant sagging. If sagging is your only cosmetic concern, a breast lift may be more suitable. If you want to add volume and correct drooping breasts at the same time, Dr. Paine will likely suggest combining the two procedures.
Your Breast Augmentation Procedure and Recovery
Dr. Paine performs breast procedures at his state-of-the-art cosmetic surgical center, Beckley Surgery Center. This accredited facility features an inviting environment, a skilled team of health care professionals, and next-generation surgical equipment. Your breast augmentation will be performed on an outpatient basis at this location to ensure that your visit is as safe, comfortable, and pleasant as possible.
Most patients can return home after surgery, though they must arrange a ride due to the lingering effects of anesthesia. Dr. Paine will prescribe medication to make your recovery more comfortable. He will also give you specific instructions regarding aftercare, appropriate post-surgical activities, and when you need to return for a follow-up visit.
Breast Augmentation Results
Post-surgical swelling is normal. Additionally, your implants may appear slightly high before they settle into a natural position, which can take several weeks.
As the swelling subsides and incision lines become lighter, you will get a better picture of your results. Breast augmentation has an incredibly high patient satisfaction rate.
