Breast augmentation is powerful for many women, and is a safe procedure.
Implants should be used not just to enlarge the breasts, but to beautify them, so we prefer the term “enhancement” over “augmentation.” Feminine, sensuous breasts are identified by size and proportion with her body, but also by shapes, relationships, alluring contours, the nipple-areola, and other features. We specialize in natural augmentation for young women who desire one or two cup size enlargement, and in restoring breast volume and shape after post-partum (pregnancy related) deflation of the breasts. You’ll try on implant sizes and styles in the office, and choose the ones that are right for you before the procedure. YOU will choose what you like best. We don’t believe in the doctor choosing your implants, although he will provide the information you need to select the implant that offers the result you want. Your procedure is planned for your unique situation, to accommodate your preferences and lifestyle. The standards we abide are instinctively pleasing contour and symmetry, appropriate size and texture, hidden or invisible scar, preservation of nipple sensation, and prevention of implant related problems. Dr. Laverson uses implants that conform to your breasts, and he adjusts features of your breast to incorporate implants. During breast augmentation, Dr. Laverson adds a series of preventive measures to avoid complications that many other surgeons encounter routinely. While this is no guarantee of perfection, your procedure is planned and executed with extreme care. Dr. Laverson works diligently to get it right the first time.

Breast Augmentation is NOT a “one size fits all” procedure. There are many individual considerations, YOUR procedure will be adjusted to achieve YOUR vision.
At Feel Beautiful, we don’t just enlarge breasts,
we use implants to create beautiful breasts.
–Steve Laverson, MD
Any lump or mass in the breast must be examined (by mammography and your physician) before getting implants. Augmentation is generally not advised until at least several months after breast feeding/breast milk is finished, and breasts have been stable in size for two months. Dr. Laverson provides povidone-iodine, chlorhexidine gluconate, or another solution to disinfect your skin the evening before or morning of your procedure. SOAK the breasts with this solution,
including around the nipples, beneath the breasts, under your arms, and all of the skin on your chest from the neck down to and including belly button. Fill your pain medicine (analgesic) prescription before your procedure, because you will need this shortly after arriving home. Dr. Laverson applies a high quality supportive Marena bra or Tytex bra before you awaken from anesthesia. Adjust hook and eye shoulder and front fastening chest straps for comfort. You may remove the bra to shower. Expect swelling around breast implants for several weeks following enhancement, then gradually resolving for several months. Report significant size and/or pain difference between right and left sides to Dr. Laverson immediately.
Beautiful Breasts, according to you
Many nuances require detailed attention to create beautiful breasts with implants. Dr. Laverson believes your result should feature breast size that is ideally proportioned with your body, and that you’re pleased with. Breast shape should be natural, round, sensuous, and should fit with your chest, shoulders, and abdomen. Your size and shape should not be fake or obvious, unless you want them to be. Your implants should be positioned for cleavage with a bra, avoiding excessive distance between your breasts. There should be an aesthetic relationship between your centrally located projecting nipple, the surrounding gently raised areola, and the further surrounding gentle slope downward and forward from the chest above to the rotund breast mound along the inner and outer sides that curves with fullness down to your inframammary fold (crease at the bottom of your breasts). Texture of the breasts should be soft. Mobility of the breast should be comfortable. Symmetry (right and left sides similar), obscure scars, nipple sensation, and absence of implant related factors such as rippling and wrinkling are also important. Your breasts should fit your personality, and should be as elegant, graceful, seductive, and/or conservatively feminine as you want to be.
