Our board-certified plastic surgeons understand that you have many choices when it comes to breast implants and breast augmentation in California. That is why the Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center strives to thoroughly inform and consult prospective breast augmentation patients so that they may make educated, confident decisions about their breast surgery options. We aim to provide safe treatment and natural-looking, beautiful breast augmentation results.
Breast implants can enlarge breasts by one or two cup sizes, adjust position, and balance the profile for a full, natural look and feel. There are many breast augmentation and breast implant techniques that we perform here at our practice that can help you gain the results you desire. During your initial consultation, a range of options will be presented from which you and Dr. Wesley Schooler or Dr. David Buchanan will decide on the best approach.
Breast Augmentation Consultation
As with any plastic surgery procedure, there are many things to consider for patients seeking breast augmentation. Patients will learn about the types of breast implants available to them at their initial consultation. Silicone breast implants are now approved by the FDA for cosmetic procedures in women 22 years and older, as well as for patients undergoing breast reconstruction. Silicon gel implants have a “smooth and natural feel.” Saline breast implants are either teardrop shaped or round; smooth or textured. You can learn more about breast implants here.

Dr. Buchanan or Dr. Schooler will go over all of your options with you in detail at your consultation.
There are many questions patients have for their cosmetic surgeon when they are seeking breast augmentation. Patients should have all of their questions answered before undergoing surgery for their breast implants. Pre- and post-operative information, the costs of breast augmentation, the type of breast implants to be used, the health concerns associated with breast augmentation surgery, and the benefits of breast implants are a few topics to be covered while consulting with our experienced team here at the Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center. We welcome patients seeking our help to enhance their natural beauty with breast augmentation from all areas of California.
