Breast Enlargement / Augmentation
Breast enlargement, or augmentation, is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures enjoyed by women in Minnesota and throughout the United States. Breast augmentation helps women feel more confident and attractive, regain the fullness of their breast after weight loss and childbirth, and can give more choices women for fashion options.
Breast Augmentation Consultation
During the initial consultation Dr. Ness will evaluate your medical history and determine which breast surgery is best for you. Dr. Ness and his assistants will take the time to educate you about breast augmentation surgery and welcome all of your questions about the surgery, our practice, and recovery after breast implant surgery.
Dr. Ness uses a dimensional approach to breast sizing which uses your breast measurements to help determine the size range that will help to best meet each patient’s goals. Dr. Ness will use this information along with the breast implant sizers to help each patient determine her best options.

Breast augmentation surgery patients now have the freedom to choose either saline breast implants or silicone breast implants when pursuing breast enhancement. Dr. Ness has had years of experience successfully placing silicone implants in patients that have enjoyed many years of healthy, enjoyable results from their breast enlargement surgery. Dr. Ness has also taken part in many research studies that helped determine that silicone implants are a safe choice for virtually all patients. At your consultation we will help you make an informed decision about the type, shape and style of breast implant for your breast augmentation surgery.
Dr. Ness offers both an inframammary approach and a periareolar incision (hidden at the border of the nipple area). Dr. Ness believes that implants appear more natural if they are placed under the chest muscle (sub-pectoral).
Breast augmentation surgery is a same-day procedure performed in one of our outpatient surgery facilities such as WestHealth in Plymouth, MN, Maple Grove Hospital in Maple Grove, Minnesota, or CentraCare Surgery Center in St. Cloud, Minnesota.
Recovery after Breast Enlargement Surgery
Following your breast augmentation surgery, you will be cared for by the nursing staff in the recovery room. When you are fully awake and comfortable, you will be released to the care of a family member or friend with a list of after-care instructions.
Many breast augmentation patients return to work after 5-7 days of recovery time at home. Many women prefer a Wednesday surgery which often allows them to return to work the following Monday. There will be guidelines for after-care including lifting restrictions and limited exercise. We will schedule post breast augmentation surgery follow up appointments in one of our Minneapolis metro area or St. Cloud clinics periodically.
