Breast Augmentation Reviews
"Dr. Nana Mizuguchi - Dr. Mizuguchi performed my breast augmentation and was wonderful! He and his staff were always very warm, friendly and informative. Dr. M made the perfect recommendation and I am happy with the results. He even called me at home to check on me after the surgery. I would recommend Dr. Mizuguchi to anyone!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Dec 21, 2010
"Great Doctor - I had my nose reconstruction, breast augmentation, and fat transfer to cheeks and lips. My breast looks perfect, even after breastfeeding 3 kids, he made it even, close to center. Scars underneath my breast are almost invisible. My nose was curved, big and had a hump. He converted it completely. Now it's little, straight and cute. I recovered very fast, not much pain anywhere. After 5 days didn't need any pain killers any pore. Fat didn't survive very well though, especially on lips. I will go back to get more injected."- Anonymous / Vitals / Feb 10, 2015

What to Expect with Breast Augmentation
Before you have breast augmentation surgery, you will have a complete physical examination. Overall good health is necessary for a successful result. When deciding which type of implant to use, keep in mind that age can be a determining factor. One of the distinct differences between saline and silicone breast implants is the age restriction. Patients must be 18 years or older in age in order to receive saline implants, and at least 21 for silicone. Existing native breast tissue, breast shape, and skin elasticity are other factors to take into consideration. Measurements will be taken of the breasts and the chest wall, including base width, to help determine the best implant type. This evaluation will help our surgeon develop the best breast augmentation plan.
Breast Augmentation Anticipated Results
After surgery, you can expect to feel sore, so you will be given post-surgical care instructions, and pain medication may be prescribed. Each augmentation patient will leave in a sports bra and clean surgical dressings. There will be some bruising and swelling for about 1 – 2 weeks. It is recommended for you to to take it easy for those two weeks to heal and rebuild strength after surgery. A majority patients experience a full recovery between 6 – 8 weeks. Most women find that their breasts look and feel totally natural within just a few short months.
