October is nationally known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In honor of this important campaign, Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, serving patients in Melbourne, Florida and Brevard County will be offering special pricing on cosmetic breast surgeries all month long.
Breast augmentation is a deeply personal procedure and our main goal is to educate those who are considering breast surgery and to make it affordable. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mauricio Castellon knows how life-changing a breast augmentation can be and finds patient satisfaction to be much higher when they choose the procedure for themselves.
Breast augmentation surgery can increase fullness and projection of your breasts, improve balance of breast and hip contour, enhance your self-image and self-confidence. However, breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. A breast lift may be required along with a breast augmentation for sagging breasts to look fuller and lifted. Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR BREAST AUGMENTATION?
You may be a candidate for breast augmentation if you are physically healthy and not pregnant or breastfeeding, have fully developed breasts, dissatisfied with the size and shape of your breasts, before and after pregnancy, unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing “empty” with weight loss or aging, and asymmetry.
WHAT TYPES OF BREAST IMPLANTS ARE AVAILABLE?
Breast implants come in many different shapes, sizes and types – saline and silicone, textured and smooth. To pick the right implant, Dr. Castellon will provide professional guidance on your options based on your desired outcomes and individualized care.
IS BREAST AUGMENTATION SAFE?
Breast implants do not impair breast health. Careful reviews of scientific research by independent groups such as the Institute of Medicine have found no link between breast implants and autoimmune or other systemic diseases.
It is extremely important that your breast augmentation surgery be mandated by
The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). There are other “cosmetic surgery boards” boasting certified surgeons, but they do not require the strict surgical training, guidelines and testing mandated by ABPS.
Dr. Castellon is well-respected for his work with women who need breast reconstruction, breast augmentation, breast lifts and men who live with enlarged breasts that are caused by gynecomastia. Dr. Castellon is one of the top board-certified cosmetic surgeons in Melbourne, Florida and Brevard County. Learn more about Dr. Castellon and latest news.
WHAT IS THE COST OF BREAST SURGERY?
The average cost of breast augmentation surgery is between $5,000 and $10,000* depending on where you live, and if you require a lift procedure. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Castellon Plastic Surgery Center will be offering $500 off ANY breast surgery procedure. Check out our Pinktober specials online.
Most health insurance plans will not cover cosmetic breast augmentation costs, related complications or another surgery to revise the appearance of your breasts. At Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, we want to make it affordable and do offer patient financing plans, so be sure to ask.
