Our doctors perform breast augmentation surgery to increase the size of the breasts and add or restore fullness. Patients benefit from a beautiful, feminine, and youthful outcome through their attention to detail and focus on natural aesthetics.
As board-certified plastic surgeons, our doctors have conducted thousands of breast augmentation procedures for women in San Francisco. Through extensive patient consultation, they discuss each person’s goals so that they can provide the enhancement that she wants. Their “rapid recovery” approach to breast augmentation minimizes swelling and bruising, allowing patients to return to their normal routine as soon as possible.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Many women decide to have breast augmentation because their breasts are smaller than they would prefer. Other women choose to have surgery because they have lost volume as a result of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
The benefits of breast augmentation with our practice are:

Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Patients may be good candidates for breast augmentation if they want to have larger breasts or return the fullness they had before becoming pregnant. They should also be healthy enough for surgery and be the right age and stage of physical development.
During an initial consultation at Plastic Surgery Associates, our doctors will take the time to review treatment in detail so that they can help patients achieve their individual goals. A physical exam will determine the patient’s dimensions and guide our doctors in their recommendations.
Our board-certified plastic surgeons typically perform breast augmentation procedures with silicone or saline implants. Some of our San Francisco patients occasionally choose to have fat liposuctioned from trouble-spots on their bodies and to use this fat to increase their breast size by a small amount. Our doctors may also suggest combining breast augmentation with breast lift for the best result possible.
To assist in these decisions, our practice offers VECTRA® XT, an advanced digital imaging system, so patients can envision their results before they decide to have surgery. VECTRA® creates an image that far exceeds the benefits of traditional implant sizers, which only show what the breasts may look like while wearing a bra.
Breast Augmentation Recovery in San Francisco
Most patients have their procedure at Plastic Surgery Associates, allowing them to receive consultation, treatment, and aftercare all in one location. Our operating room is AAAASF-certified, ensuring patients benefit from the highest safety standards. Patients sleep through breast augmentation surgery — assisted by a board-certified anesthesiologist — and they return home on the same day.
With the rapid recovery techniques that our doctors use, patients rarely have significant bruising. Patients who do not have physically demanding jobs or lifestyles can usually return to their job within a week.
As part of their recovery, we will advise San Francisco patients to wear a compression garment to limit swelling. They should also keep physical exertion to a minimum. Patients should be able to see their initial results within one week, though it may take several months for the final shape and size to show. At that point, they should be able to enjoy the full benefits of surgery: a larger, fuller, and more youthful appearance.
Breast Augmentation Costs in San Francisco
Breast augmentation costs between $8,000 and $10,000 as a standalone procedure. Several factors affect the pricing in this range, including:
Our board-certified plastic surgeons are experts at providing customized results through breast augmentation. Every patient benefits from a beautiful, feminine, and rejuvenated appearance from this procedure. The rapid recovery approach used by our doctors allows women to return to their normal daily activities sooner.
Our board-certified plastic surgeons may also recommend that patients have a breast lift at the same time as an augmentation to reduce sagging skin, restore the breasts’ height, and improve their shape. Additional procedures will increase the price of treatment. Our doctors welcome the opportunity to discuss all options for care and invite patients to get in touch for an appointment to learn more.
