Breast augmentation surgery has become more popular than ever before, and as the need for great service arises, so does the opportunity for the Baltimore area’s best to shine. At the office of Dr. Steven J. Rottman, MD, we specialize in providing a wide variety of patients with perfectly designed breast implants, reconstructive breast procedures, and even breast reductions, all done with the utmost in care and compassion.
We know that every woman deserves to look and feel her very best, and in American society today, nearly 75% of women claim to be unhappy with the size, shape, or overall appearance of their breasts. This is why we always go the extra mile to make our services affordable, accessible, and perfectly contoured to fit your life.
Currently the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, breast augmentation is a relatively simple surgical procedure, and recovery time has lessened significantly as medical science has made huge strides over the past few decades. The size and shape of the breasts can be altered through the use of either a saline or silicone implant placed beneath existing tissue, giving the appearance of the perfect breasts nature rarely bestows upon any woman. For those experiencing issues with sagging, due to age, nursing, or significant weight loss, a lift can be performed simultaneously, maximizing the beauty of the results.

Breast augmentation is a popular elective procedure that can increase the size, enhance the shape, or improve the symmetry of a woman’s breasts, and is usually accomplished through the surgical placement of saline or silicone breast implants. There are many different options to meet each patient’s individual needs, including different implant sizes, and shapes, and incision techniques. The goal of breast augmentation is to create natural looking breasts. You may also consider combining a breast lift with augmentation if your breasts sag.
Saline or silicone-gel filled breast implants are inserted through a short incision and placed behind the breast tissue. Incision sites include the crease at the bottom of the breast, around the areola, or in the underarm. Scars fade over time, and become minimally noticeable. The implant is either placed under the chest muscle or between the chest muscle and breast tissue. The decision is made based on the patient’s anatomy, as well as the type and size of the implant chosen.
The healing process varies for each patient. Full recovery generally takes about a week or two and most patients are typically able to be up and about after 24 hours. You will be able to see the results of your breast augmentation immediately and as the swelling and bruising subside, your new look will become even more apparent. During the months following your procedure, the incision marks will gradually fade, becoming virtually unnoticeable.
