Dr. Gray has performed well over 20,000 breast enlargement surgeries to date, and is considered one of the best and most experienced cosmetic surgeon in the country. When it comes to selecting the best breast augmentation surgeon for you, here are a few things according to Dr. Gray that you may want to consider.
It is incredibly important that when selecting a breast augmentation surgeon, you understand the rules and limitations of this or any procedure you choose. Knowing how the procedure is performed and why you cannot create anything you wish. Knowing the differences in the type of implant that are available and whether you wish a scar on the chest (incisions) or the ‘Scarless’ technique that Dr. Gray helped pioneer. A good consult should answer questions you would not know to ask! In fact, Dr. Gray feels you should not have to think of questions to ask, everything should be answered so you do not have to think of what to ask. A conversation about your aesthetic goals is important to determine the exact procedure or procedures needed to create what you wish.

What is Breast Augmentation?
You should also have a basic understanding of what is breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Gray defines it as a cosmetic surgery procedure that enlarges the breast and makes your breast fuller but will not lift the breast. The breasts are enhanced, enlarged through the placement of saline or cohesive silicone “Gummy Bear” implants. From a surgeons point of view, the goal is to enhance the patients natural proportions by creating beautiful looking breasts. However, a breast augmentation alone can not necessarily produce symmetry. A breast augmentation will only change the volume of a breast but will not change muscle, bone, angles of ribs, where the breasts starts or stops not nipple position. Having a clear understanding of what each cosmetic procedure can accomplish helps our patients make good decisions. During your consultation with Dr. Michael W. Gray, DO, your understanding of this and other procedures will be clarified to make sure the end-result is tailored to meet your wants and needs.
The truth is, any person is a candidate for a breast augmentation or boob job. Some individuals desire larger breast implants while others prefer a smaller enhancement of the breasts. Dr. Gray explains that many of his patients undergo their breast enlargement surgery for a myriad of reasons. A few are:
- To restore the fullness and volume of the breasts.
- To experience a boost in confidence and self-image.
- To feel and look their better in their clothes, swimsuit or naked.
- To improve breast symmetry.
- To relive their more youthful and pre-pregnancy days.
- And many other reasons.
Whatever your reason, you deserve to look and feel your very best and Dr. Gray will be there in your corner to help make your dream a reality.
How long does Breast Augmentation take?
You want to make sure that you select a surgeon, like Dr. Gray, that will be with you through the whole process. Breast augmentation surgery can take anywhere between 1-2 hours. After your breast enlargement surgery, it is normal to experience some soreness, bruising and swelling. Since this is temporary, most of our patients return to work after just a few days. However, with the scarless breast augmentation, the recovery time and soreness is much faster, allowing you to go back to your day to day activities in no time.

Breast augmentation recovery is just as important as the breast enhancement itself, so make sure to rest up and follow the doctors recommendations.
