Who Is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

If you are in good general health, you are most likely an excellent candidate for this procedure. Dr. Sundine will carefully evaluate your breast anatomy, including tissue availability, to help you decide if breast surgery is right for you. He will also recommend the appropriate types of implants after discussing your aesthetic goals and safety concerns.

Dr. Sundine offers both silicone and saline breast implants. Silicone implants are filled with gel and tend to feel more natural to the touch. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution, and are believed to be safer in case of a rupture.
Dr. Sundine also uses various incision types to place the implants, including:

  • Inframammary (crease incision)
  • Periareolar incision (nipple incision)
  • Transaxillary (armpit incision)

The Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be asleep during surgery. Dr. Sundine starts the procedure by making incisions, the location of which is decided prior to surgery. He then makes a pocket in each breast to make room for the implant. Breast implants can be placed under the chest muscle, over the chest muscle or partially under the chest muscle. The placement will also be determined prior to the procedure. The saline or silicone implants are then placed in each breast pocket and the incisions are closed with sutures.

Recovering from Breast Augmentation Surgery

Upon waking up from breast surgery, you will feel soreness in the treatment area and drowsiness from the anesthesia. You will be kept in a recovery room for a few hours, during which time Dr. Sundine’s staff will closely monitor you. You will be able to go home at the end of the day. Please be sure to arrange a ride as you will not be able to drive. Prior to leaving the recovery facility, you will be given detailed instructions on how to care for yourself during the first few days. Dr. Sundine will also give you prescription medicine for pain, as well as antibiotics.

You will most likely be advised to stay home and rest for about a week. Most patients are able to return to work and other daily duties within seven to 10 days. You should not exercise or perform any strenuous physical activities for up to four weeks. Dr. Sundine will see you on a regular basis to check on your healing progress. He will also show you various ways to massage your breasts, so that your implants settle appropriately and give you the natural results you desire.

    Excellent. I found Dr. Sundine to be a very competent surgeon and a really good person. His personal manner made a sometimes difficult, time-consuming process (tissue expansion) much easier. I’m glad we pursued the expansion option and I was fortunate to have had him as my surgeon. I recommend Dr. Sundine to anyone who is in need of Plastic / Reconstructive Surgery.

    Dr. Sundine is an outstanding doctor. His technique, his expertise and the care with which he approached my surgery were exceptional. I wasn’t surprised. I chose him because I knew that his training and skills are terrific. Dr. Sundine and his staff still exceeded my expectations, however, and the complete experience – consultation, surgery and follow-up– have been wonderful. As I did, I encourage everyone to do your due diligence and research alternatives, but at the end of the day there is no better choice than Dr. Sundine. Amazing results…

    “He truly deserved the highest reviews on every level”

    I gave Dr. Sundine the highest possible review in each category because he truly deserved the highest reviews on every level. I am a very well recognized lawyer on the West Coast. My firm has spent millions of dollars on television advertising in which I appear. I could not afford to have a bad face lift or even for people to notice I had a face lift at all. I interviewed many physicians including some of the “celebrity” physicians. Ultimately, I chose Dr. Sundine because he performs highly complex complete facial reconstruction procedures on children.

    “Special thank you to Dr. Sundine! So happy!!”

    My keloid surgery was an absolute success. I am so pleased with the results and grateful to the staff pre & post surgery. I was so nervous and scared to precede w/ the procedure. For I never had a surgery or general anesthesia before.:(

    Dr. Sundine with his exceeding professionalism gave me gentle kind assurance that all will be fine. In addition, educated me to his full knowledge and experience in detail what to expect. I felt safe and secure in his hands. Very kind soul. Post surgery I had radiation at another location, and it was a success. I am still in the healing process and my ear aesthetically looks next to perfect. I’m free of the disfigurement and I have a renewed confidence keloid Free!! :-)

    It was like 1 2 3!!

    Thank you Dr. Sundine, the friendly staff/ nurses You ALL Rock!! & I couldn’t ask for any better.:)

    I chose Dr. Sundine because he is an expert in a highly regarded surgical technique that delivers a completely natural result. It takes longer on the operating table and it requires specialized training which many doctors just don’t want to invest in. The results, however, are nothing short of spectacular.
