Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure used to increase the size of the breast or to correct the shape and symmetry of the breasts. Dr. Correa uses silicone or saline implants or a technique called fat transfer to achieve the look that his patients desire.
Considering a Breast Augmentation?
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dr. Correa delivers unique results to each patient with an initial consultation. There are three main decisions to be made concerning a breast augmentation procedure. We believe that the method chosen is unique to each patient and can depend on many factors. By learning your cosmetic goals and performing a professional assessment, Dr. Correa will tailor your personal treatment recommendations to fit your needs and desires.

TYPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS
The primary variables are the type of material (silicone or saline), the shape of the implant (round or ‘anatomic’), and the texture of the shell (smooth or rough). Each of these breast implants have their own unique set of attributes. The most common types of breast augmentation implants are:
Composed of a sterile saline solution. If the implant shell ruptures, saline solution is absorbed by the body and naturally expelled.
These implants are designed so that if any rotation occurs, the breast maintains the same shape.
These come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are designed to hold a specific shape and position. Anatomic Implants create a particular shape and therefore are meant to avoid rotation.
Form-Stable Silicone Implants
Also called “Gummy Bear” Implants, these implants are thicker than silicone and the gel in these will remain in place in the event of a rupture.
The rough outer texture of these implants creates a Velcro-like surface for the body to stick to, which prevents rotation and movement. All anatomic implants are textured, but round implants can be textured or smooth.
Fat Transfer Augmentation
This procedure removes fat from another area of the patient’s body through liposuction and transfers it to the breast. This procedure is controversial as a cosmetic procedure and should only be undertaken in very select circumstances.
CONSIDERING A BREAST AUGMENTATION?
Good candidates for breast augmentation are women who are generally healthy, have a personal desire to change the shape of their breasts and have a realistic goal concerning the outcome of their breast surgery. Most women considering this type of surgery have a dissatisfaction with the balance of their bosom-to-body ratio and wish to correct it. There are some health conditions that might prevent a woman from this or any elective surgery. Women should meet with Dr. Correa to discuss any of these concerning conditions. Young women who have not fully matured should wait at least until they are 18 or until their breast size has stabilized prior to considering breast implant surgery.
Reasons for Breast Implants:
Loss of breast volume due to aging
Reduced breast volume from weight loss
Volume-loss from breastfeeding
Breast Cancer reconstruction post-treatment
Revising or repairing a previous breast surgery
Balancing different sized breasts
Dr. Correa’s Philosophy on
“Breast augmentation provides a unique opportunity for the patient to choose almost every aspect of their surgery – from the incision location to the type and size of the implant, it’s as close as you can get to re-designing your own body to your desires.”
I am so happy that I trusted Dr. Correa

Before choosing Dr Correa, I went to see a very well known PS that spent no more than 5 minutes with me during my first appointment. That was not a good experience, as I felt just like a number and I’m glad I left that place quickly. Then, decided to make an appointment with Dr Correa. (Best decision EVER!)
During the appointment I was actually surprised about how dr Correa took his time to go over all my questions, what my goal was and genuinely listened my concern. I was very hesitant to do surgery because of my petit frame. I relied upon Dr. Correa to give me his honest opinion on what would look the best/most natural with my body type and I am so happy that I trusted him and went with his suggestion. He is an expert on proportion and natural appearance!
My breasts look so natural and so proportional to my body. He is an artist! Also, I was very impressed with his post-op care. He called to check how I was doing and quickly texted me back anytime I had any questions or concerns. His staff was very professional and always making me feel welcome.
I urge anyone who wants breasts that look natural to their body to fully trust him and his expertise.
Dr Correa is the Best Doctor!!!!

I met Dr Correa for a consultation and I knew he was going to be my guy! He is very personable, funny, knowledgeable and professional. His staff is very sweet and friendly, I always felt very welcomed. When Dr Correa did my surgery, he called me that night to make sure I was okay. He also checked on me a couple of times before my follow up appointments. He is very caring for his patients and he listened to my concerns. I am very happy with my results and I would highly recommend my family and friends to see him. His office is very clean, wait time is very minimal and I absolutely love him! Thank you Dr Correa for everything!
Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing!

Dr. Correa is absolutely amazing! It hasn’t been the easiest recovery but he and his staff have been very helpful and attentive. He has called several times to check on me and Gabrielle is very sweet and helpful – even when I have called to ask the same questions probably more than once lol – top notch surgeon and staff , he is definitely the best and I am very happy that I chose to go with him.
What an amazing physician!

What an amazing physician! Dr. Correa and his office staff treat you like a family member from day one. Everything from the consult, surgery day, to post op was professional and he really went out of his way to make me feel at home. I never once felt like I was being “rushed along”, or felt like I was just another paycheck. This physician and his staff go the extra mile. The day of my surgery, he was fifteen minutes early! Fifteen minutes people! I work at a hospital and i can tell you no surgeries ever run on time, let alone early. I also appreciate the fact that he performs all surgeries at an actual hospital, not a outpatient surgical center. Dr. Correa even called me from his personal phone later in the evening after my surgery to check on me. His office coordinator, Gabrielle, and his nurse, are remarkable girls! They accommodate every rescheduled appointment and are very warm and caring. You are doing yourself an absolute disservice if you do not allow yourself to be sculpted by Dr. Correa! I promise you will not regret it!
What an amazing physician!
