Breast augmentation can improve the size and contour of a woman's breasts. If your breasts never developed, if they shrank as a result of weight loss or pregnancy, if they do not have an attractive shape, or if they are uneven in size or different in shape, breast augmentation can help.

Bottger, M.D., can improve your confidence, give you a greater range of clothing options, and help restore your youthful figure.
This page gives some general information on breast augmentation, but it cannot tell you if the procedure is right for you or answer questions about the results you might see in your case. To get specific information and personalized recommendations, please schedule a consultation with Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. David Bottger.
What Breast Augmentation Can Accomplish
Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure that can improve the appearance of your
breasts if you perceive they are:
- Too small
- Do not have an attractive shape
- Lack fullness in the upper part of the breast
- Are significantly uneven in size or shape
- Have minor sagging
Breast augmentation uses breast implants to increase the volume of the breasts and give them a more attractive shape. In cases of significant sagging, a breast lift may be necessary to completely reshape your breasts and give them the appearance you desire.

Customize Your Breast Augmentation Procedure
Because your cosmetic goals are specific to your body and your idea of what attractive breasts look like, your breast augmentation procedure can be customized to give you the results you desire. Some of the decisions you will make to ensure you get the best breast augmentation for you include:
- Silicone or saline breast implants
- Size of breast implant
- Shape of breast implant
- Placement of breast implant
- Incision placement
During your consultation, Dr. Bottger will help you understand how these decisions can help you get the results you desire. To help you communicate your goals to Dr. Bottger, you can collect materials to bring to your consultation, such as clothes you hope to wear after your breast augmentation, pictures of you when you were happiest with the appearance of your breasts, or pictures of women who are similar in proportion to you, but have what you consider attractive breasts. It's important to remember when looking at pictures in magazines or advertisements that most women in these images have been airbrushed and you may not be able to achieve similar results.

My surgery may seem vain and insignificant, but it meant the world to me. I wish I could find the words to express what it means to have some confidence again after such a long time.
