Breast Augmentation Surgeon – Dr. Mirabile
Serving Philadelphia, Bucks County and Montgomery County

sculptBreast Augmentation is an elective, cosmetic surgical procedure performed in order to increase breast size through the use of saline or silicone breast implant prosthetics. This procedure is available at Best Impression Cosmetic Surgery. It can be performed in 1 to 2 hours, and is typically performed in Dr. Mirabile’s accredited outpatient surgical facility. Recovery times are relatively short, depending on the individual patient. Generally patients can return to non-physical occupations in 3 days and light physical occupation in 7 days.

Dr. Mirabile is considered a regional expert in breast surgery. He performs over 200 breast augmentations each year. He was a principle investigator for the Mentor Corporation for over ten years, and his research contributed to the return of the use of silicone implants for breast augmentation in the United States.

Dr. Mirabile will evaluate each patient individually and make recommendations regarding implant type and size, incision site, and possible additional procedures such as breast lift surgery to optimize the post-operative appearance of the breasts. During each consultation, the patient will undergo digital imaging and sizing so that they will have a clear idea of how they will look after surgery. Dr. Mirabile has thousands of pre and post-operative photographs available for review, and patients are encouraged to talk to former patients of Dr. Mirabile pre-operatively.

Breast augmentation surgery can be a good option for those who:

  • Desire larger, fuller breasts
  • Have uneven, asymmetrical or misshapen breasts
  • Wish to restore breast size and condition to pre-childbirth appearance.

In order to create the best possible results from your breast augmentation surgery, it is important that your surgeon consult with you to discuss your desires and expectations. You will also discuss how breast augmentation surgery will impact you and your lifestyle. You should also consider the following before your consultation:

  • General medical history, including any genetic propensity for breast cancer, results of previous mammograms and any previous surgeries
  • A detailed account of current prescription medications, supplements (vitamins or others) that you take
  • What are your expectations?

At the consultation, your surgeon will also:

  • Evaluate your current health
  • Examine the condition of your pre-operative breasts for size, shape and irregularities and photograph your breasts
  • Based on the information gathered, your surgeon will discuss your surgical options and recommend a course of treatment. He will discuss placement of incisions, implant type and shape, and final implant position (sub muscular versus above the muscle)
  • Disclose the risk of common complications associated with breast augmentation surgery and the use of anesthesia
  • Discuss what to do the day of surgery
  • Discuss post-operative care and recovery

Preparing for surgery

In the weeks before surgery, your surgeon may request:

  • Further laboratory testing or medical evaluations
  • Adjusting current prescriptions
  • That you get a mammogram before surgery to document any changes in breast tissues

Recovery – what to expect

Breast augmentation procedures are done on an outpatient basis. The patient goes home about one and a half hours after surgery is complete. In general, patients can return to non-physical occupations three days after surgery, and light physical occupations in seven. Full recovery is expected within a few weeks. During the first few days after surgery, patients experience swelling and mild discomfort for which pain medication is prescribed.

Getting breast augmentation is a big decision and it’s important to become fully informed. Dr. Mirabile, a breast implants specialist, will answer any questions you may have about breast augmentation surgery.
