Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
In general, breast augmentation candidates are in good physical health. So, if you have medical issues, it’s important to discuss them with Dr. Bonillas during your initial consultation.

Your Private Consultation With Dr. Robert G. Bonillas
Dr. Robert G. Bonillas, MD wants to help you live your best life. He is ready to hear your story. At your private, one-on-one consultation, Dr. Bonillas will conduct a brief intake interview and physical examination. He will become better acquainted with your case so that he can make sound recommendations for your course of treatment.
It should come as little surprise that Breast Augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures. Breast augmentation can give women a larger chest. The procedure can also correct asymmetry in unevenly sized breasts. Overall, the procedure helps the patient to present a fuller, firmer and better-proportioned look.
Many breast augmentation patients seek to balance their breast size, compensating for a reduced breast mass after pregnancy. Under Dr. Bonillas’ expert care, patients enjoy great-looking, natural-feeling breasts that are one or more cup sizes larger after the operation.
How Long Does Breast Enhancement Surgery Take?
The surgery will last between one and two hours. You will likely receive general anesthesia. Breast augmentation is usually an outpatient procedure, though some can elect to stay overnight. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions under the breast, under the arms or around the nipples. After he inserts the implants, Dr. Bonillas will close the incision with a set sutures. Recovery time is minimal as you wait for some of the pain and swelling to subside.
Breast Implant Removal
They will enhance your looks, but breast implants are not lifetime devices. After about 10 to 15 years, it may be time to consider Breast Implant Removal. As time goes by, they may lose their responsive feel and natural-looking shape. Dr. Bonillas can help correct this. The unlikely odds of a rupture increase as the prosthetics age.
These regular refresh sessions provide you with an opportunity for an upgrade. Like any technology, breast implants are constantly improving. Today, breast implants are far safer and more aesthetically pleasing than they were a decade ago. So your routine maintenance can become yet another opportunity for enhancement. If you are a former breast augmentation patient, you owe it to yourself to see what’s out there. Shopping is fun!
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Sagging breasts are known as ptosis in the plastic surgery set. A Breast Lift will help you to defy the forces of age and gravity. In mastopexy, Dr. Bonillas removes excess skin. He will raise your breasts’ orientation so that they appear more perky and youthful. He also repositions your nipples upward. However, since tissue is removed in the procedure, your bra cup size may go down unless you undergo augmentation as well. You can judge the severity of your ptosis by conducting your own informal “pencil test” at home.
The Pencil Test
You can check yourself for ptosis of the breasts at home. The classic pencil test is a tried and true method for detecting sagging bosoms. First, place a pencil in the inframammary fold beneath your breast. If the pencil does not fall to the floor, then your sagging is severe enough to have held it in place.
Breast Augmentation with Lift
Have you noticed that your once jaunty bosoms now look sad and saggy? Dr. Bonillas knows exactly how to help. He will combine the benefits of his breast augmentation and breast lift procedures into a single surgery called augmentation-mastopexy. Breast augmentation with a lift features the advantage of being able to address multiple issues at once. Many of our patients are quite pleased by the comprehensive enhancement options offered by augmentation-mastopexy.
Experience has shown Dr. Bonillas that sagging breasts indicate volume loss. This commonly comes with age. Breast augmentation is by far the best way to resist volume loss. The procedure also empowers you by providing you the opportunity to choose the kind of chest that you find most appealing.
Breast implants vary in size, shape and texture to suit the style of every woman. Indeed, it is our most popular procedure. Additionally, A breast lift will change your breasts’ direction, not their dimension. When taken together, these two breast enhancement options will increase the size and vivacity of your bust.
Breast Reconstruction is a surgical procedure commonly performed after a mastectomy to offer patients psychological and aesthetic benefits when recovering from breast cancer. Breast reconstruction allows many women to fully return to the life they enjoyed before being diagnosed with breast cancer. Although the treatment of cancer is the main focus for both patient and doctor, restoring your appearance after breast cancer can often help ensure a complete recovery of body and mind.
Balance is an essential ingredient of beauty. Could your silhouette use a bit more symmetry? A Breast Reduction helps to reduce the size of overly large or asymmetrical breasts. This procedure is often sought to alleviate the discomfort and pain that accompanies large breasts. Many women with very large breasts experience neck and back pain. Large breasts may also interfere with certain physical activities. If you are physically and emotionally stressed by the size of your breasts, Dr. Robert Bonillas offers a simple, attractive solution.

In breast augmentation, your surgeon will often place a pair of breast implants behind the breast tissue or under the chest muscle. An implant is a sac filled with either sterile saline or silicone. The surgery is done at an outpatient surgery clinic or in a hospital. Most women receive general anesthesia for this surgery.
The “best” breast implant is the one that you choose for yourself. No two patients are the same, and neither are their needs and their dreams. Experienced plastic surgeons know that every procedure is a unique experience that should be customized to the individual.
A skilled surgeon strives to move invisibly through the procedure, minimizing their impact. The location of your breast implant scars will be determined by the placement of your incisions. One of the most common incision techniques is called the inframammary incision. This technique creates two incisions that follow the natural curve underneath your breasts. Thus, scarring can be easily hidden beneath a bikini top.
