Des Moines Breast Augmentation
For many women, breast size is an important part of feeling good, desirable, and even “normal” in our society. Breast augmentation—clinically referred to as an augmentation mammoplasty— may be utilized to alter the size, shape, firmness, and projection of the breast with the addition of a saline or silicone implant. As the Des Moines cosmetic surgery specialists with Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery know, breast implants can greatly improve an individual’s self-image and self-confidence.
Breast augmentation is a highly individualized procedure that will be intended to help you achieve the exact results you desire. With that in mind, you will work closely with our cosmetic surgeons to ultimately determine the appropriate size, type, and placement that is best for you based on your breast structure, body type, and overall goals.
Reasons Our Des Moines Clients Pursue Breast Augmentation
Though our clients choose to augment their breasts for a number of reasons that are specific to their circumstances, the following few are familiar to many of our clients:
- To improve self-image and self-confidence
- To improve their volume after weight loss or pregnancy
- To achieve a greater degree of symmetry
- To reconstruct the breast after mastectomy
- To correct a congenital chest wall deformity
Since breast augmentation will not correct sagging or pendulous breasts, a breast lift—or breast mastopexy—may be combined with a breast augmentation.

If I want to get a breast augmentation but need a breast lift also, will you be doing both procedures at the same time?
Since breast augmentation may not be able to correct sagging breasts or breasts that have lost their youthfulness and firmness, the breast lift (the breast mastopexy) can be combined with a breast augmentation. Our knowledgeable cosmetic surgery specialists team can work with you individually to come up with your personal and individualized plan so that both procedures can be done efficiently and successfully according to your goals. Our client satisfaction with our procedures is of the utmost importance.
