Conveniently located to serve Minneapolis, St. Paul and Woodbury

Breast-Augmentation-thumbBreast augmentation candidates in St. Paul – Minneapolis are becoming more and more aware of the benefits of looking your best and they all desire to look more youthful with the use of breast implants.

Plastic surgeon and breast surgery expert Dr. James A. Hoffman recommends breast augmentation for his patients in St. Paul, Minneapolis who have lost breast volume after they gave birth and breast fed. This is also an effective treatment for patients who wish to restore breast fullness after they have gone through drastic weight changes. Patients who have naturally small breasts can now have the opportunity to get fuller breasts through breast augmentation.

What Is Breast Augmentation?

A breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty or breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure that will increase the fullness, symmetry and projection of your breasts. This surgery involves inserting a silicone bag or saline-filled prosthesis under the breast tissue to expand the breast and give it a fuller size and younger contour.

Your Breast Augmentation will be performed in Dr. Hoffman’s surgery center located in Woodbury, MN, just outside of Minneapolis and St. Paul.

What is a breast augmentation like?

Breast augmentations done in our office in St. Paul, Minneapolis are generally done under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, depending on what the patient prefers. An incision will be made in the breast fold under the breast, or around the areola to make the incision lines less visible. This will create a pocket where the implant will be inserted. Adjustments will be made in order to achieve perfect symmetry between the 2 breasts. The incisions will be closed with sutures, after which instructions will be provided for patients on proper home care of the wounds for proper healing.

Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

In some cases, women may have sagging breasts and desire larger breasts, or they may desire larger implants that can lead to breast sagging. In these cases, a breast augmentation with lift is recommended to attain their desired results. If breast enlargement is not desired, a breast lift without implants is recommended.

I am so unbelievably happy with my results

Dear Dr. Hoffman, Nica, and Staff-

I am a few days post-surgery and I am feeling great! Though I am not completely recovered yet, I am so unbelievably happy with my results. This whole experience was phenomenal. For so long, since my early teenage years, I’ve been dreaming about having the body that I want. Never in my life have I ever wanted to change anything about the body that I was born with except for my breasts. With my genetics, I didn’t stand a chance, until I was referred to your office.

From the very first e-mail exchange, I knew your office would be the one to give me the one thing I’ve always wanted. For me, it was such a personal procedure because I do carry myself with such confidence and allure. That first e-mail impressed me greatly because it gave me so much information that I needed to further consider the procedure. It wasn’t one of those “call for more information” responses. My first official phone call was so very pleasant. Nica, you are such a pleasure to talk to. You made me feel so comfortable over the phone and your accommodations to my schedule was greatly appreciated.

Our first face-to-face felt like I’ve known you all for so long. I was so comfortable being topless in a room with strangers. Your honest opinions in helping me pick a size that best suits my body and style truly helped. I never once felt pressured into a bigger size nor did I ever feel like I was just another breast implant #5486 (random number!) I would also like to thank you all for going to extra mile for making sure I got the medications I needed for recovery. I couldn’t have been in better hands.

Dr. Hoffman, you were so informative with the entire procedure. When you told me even the smallest percentages of certain risks, you still took the time to explain to me how we can avoid it. You took into consideration of the look and feel I was going for. It truly felt like it was only me that mattered in that office. I’ve been telling so many of my clients and friends about the entire process since that first e-mail. I almost sound like an obsessed groupie! I sure do hope that you will receive more business from the Eau Claire area because believe me, I will be singing your praises.

I’ve worked so hard my entire life to take care of everyone around me and I am so happy that I finally did something that simply just for me. Thank you all so much for making me complete. I can finally own the body of the woman I’ve been dreaming of becoming.

Always and Forever with perfect boobs.
