Want Tampa Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is one of the most common Tampa plastic surgery procedures. The augmentation is accomplished by inserting a breast implant to increase volume and fullness. This results in an aesthetic change to the overall appearance of the breast and can also help to restore volume and fullness lost as a result of pregnancy or weight loss. The most common types of breast implants are saline and silicone. Saline breast implants are filled with sterile salt water. The implant is placed in a surgically created pocket of the breast and filled to achieve the desired outcome. This type of implant allows the implant to be filled as needed in order to achieve the desired size and can help correct any possible asymmetry. Silicone implants are prefilled with a silicone gel, which results in fuller breasts that look and feel natural. Since these implants are prefilled, we will be unable to correct a slight asymmetry. Placement of the implant is another component of the surgery. The incision is made typically around the areola, which allows for minimal visible scarring and the cleavage you desire. A breast implant can be placed behind the pectoral muscle or behind the breast tissue. The best option for you will be determined by the doctor.
Are You a Breast Augmentation Candidate?
Typically, patients over the age of 18 years of age are candidates for Tampa breast augmentation surgery and eligibility is determined based upon a physical examination and your health history. If you are over the age of 40, a mammogram is required if a recent one is not available.

The following may help you make the right choice for YOU.
Choose a surgeon you can trust: Plastic surgery involves making a series of decisions with the first and most important being the selection of surgeon you can trust. A doctor being board certified is a good indication of his or her background and training. You can request a doctor’s certification credentials from the American Board of Plastic Surgery ASBS, the only one of the 24 boards approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). They are charged with certifying physicians in plastic surgery of the face and all areas of the body. To become ABPS board-certified, a doctor must meet these rigorous standards: • Graduate from an accredited medical school • Complete at least five years of surgical training following medical school with a minimum of two years of plastic surgery residency training • Pass comprehensive oral and written exams American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPA) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) Members must: • Be certified by the ABPS or in Canada by The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada • Complete continuing medical education including patient safety each year • Perform surgery in accredited, state-licensed or Medicare-certified surgical facilities
Remember, you should not trust your body to just any cosmetic surgeon. If you are seeking plastic surgery in Tampa, you should visit a board certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. C Randall Harrell, at the Fountain of Youth Institute, to ensure that you are provided with the correct evaluation according to your expectations and desired outcomes.
