To improve the shape and contour of sagging breasts, usually combined with a breast lift or mastopexy
For reconstruction after breast removal from cancer, trauma, or hereditary defects

The best candidates for a breast augmentation are women who want improvement, not necessarily perfections. Your consultation is a time for you to communicate your expectations to our physicians and work together to choose the best procedure to give you what you want.
Types of Breast Implants
Implants can come in different sizes, textures, shapes, profiles and fillers. During your consultation you will have the opportunity to try on the implants and see how they feel and look with your body. Our physicians will guide you on choosing the best implant for your body type
Sizes are based on width and projection (how much it expands the breast off the chest wall).
Textures are either smooth or rough/textured surface.
Shape is either round or anatomic (teardrop). Profiles are low, medium or high; depends on the base diameter and projection.
Fillers are either silicone or saline.
The shell of the implant is a solid silicone, rubber shell that may have a smooth or textured covering. The FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has approved after extensive research and investigation both saline or silicone as the filling substances of breast implants. Before placement of breast implants, a woman�s breasts should be fully developed. Saline implants are approved by the FDA for women at least 18 years of age, while silicone implants are approved for women at least 22 years of age.
What happens during the complimentary consultation?
Our consultations are provided free of charge at our Spokane based clinic. During the consultation, we will discuss the details of the procedure, the benefits and risks, pre and post operative expectations, and provide pricing based on physician examination. A breast examination will be performed assessing the quality of your skin and breast tissue. If you have breasts that sag, a breast lift may be recommended. You will have a discussion about the types of implants and get to try the implants on. Measurements will be taken to ensure the implant you choose will give you the expectations you desire. By the time you leave your consultation at our Spokane clinic, you will be well-prepared to make an informed decision based on your personal goals.
