How Does It Work?
Breast augmentation begins with a small incision around the areola, in the armpit, or underneath the curve of the breast, which allows your plastic surgeon to access the breast muscle. The breast implant is placed either beneath the breast muscle or above it; the placement will largely depend on your goals. The nipple may be repositioned to match your new breast shape. The incisions are finally closed after the procedure is done; all-in-all, it usually takes about one to two hours to perform.
Breast augmentation surgery is highly personalized to your specific needs. Dr. Cristina Keusch will work closely with you to ensure you understand how your breast augmentation surgery will be performed, and what you can expect for potential incision scarring after your procedure.
Am I a Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?
You’re a good candidate for breast augmentation if you are unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts, and you want them to appear fuller. You should be a healthy individual with no history of high blood pressure, bleeding disorders, or other health conditions that could put you at risk during surgery.
All patients should have realistic expectations for their procedure.

How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it’s estimated that the average cost of breast augmentation surgery is $3,947. However, it’s important to note that anesthesia, operating room facilities, quality of implant, and other related expenses will incur. At Boca Raton Plastic Surgery Center, the cost for breast augmentation by board-certified surgeon Dr. Cristina Keusch is only slightly higher than the national average. This is due to the level of skill, care, and attention that you can expect to receive – starting from initial consultation through surgery and post-operative recovery. Our surgery center provides a state-of-the-art facility that has been accredited since 1990 by the AAAASF, the gold standard in accreditation.
We invite you to schedule a consultation to meet Dr. Cristina Keusch to discuss your goals for breast augmentation and have your questions answered.
