Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure done to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast. This procedure is done by inserting an implant behind each breast, increasing the bust line by one or more bra cup sizes. A breast augmentation procedure targets those women who are looking for improvement, not perfection.

What makes Dr. Byun’s technique different from other surgeons?
Dr. Byun has the ability to create a natural outcome for women interested in enhancing their breasts. There are three specific sites Dr. Byun uses for incisions: the axillary, the areola, and the inframammary fold. All three sites result in minimal scarring. The breast tissue and skin create a pocket where the implant will be placed either directly behind the breast tissue or underneath your chest wall muscle. The implants are then centered beneath your nipples. He chooses to place the implants underneath the breast muscle because he believes it will result in a natural outcome. It will give the breasts a youthful, perkier appeal.


How much done time is involved?
A ten day follow up appointment is needed so Dr. Byun can remove sutures and show you a few massage techniques to do at home. You're likely to feel soreness and pain for few days following surgery. After 48 hours, you may remove any gauze dressings and shower. A sports bra with a zipper in front is recommended to purchase and wear for several weeks. Swelling in your breasts may take three to five weeks to disappear; however, you may return in work with light duty in three to four weeks following surgery. Extraneous work or lifting should be avoided for a couple of months after surgery.
