Breasts are one of the most defining features of a woman’s figure and there is little doubt that the size, shape, and appearance of the breasts influence how women feel about their bodies and are part of their self-esteem. Factors such as genetics, weight gain or loss, pregnancy, and aging tend to change the size, shape, and overall appearance of the breast. Breast enhancement surgery, including breast augmentation, in Eugene, Oregon, is as diverse in procedures and outcomes as women are in appearance: from reducing large breasts and enhancing small breasts to lifting sagging breasts and restoring a breast disfigured by or lost to disease.
Why Choose Breast Surgery?
Breast surgery is a highly emotional and fulfilling experience for many women who come to Dr. Jewell’s practice from Salem, Bend, Corvallis, and other Oregon communities. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), 573,400 women underwent breast augmentation, lift, or reduction in 2013; additionally over 91,655 women chose breast reconstruction according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Results for many of these women are a more positive body image and enhanced self-confidence.
When it comes to breast enhancement surgery, there are many different options and choices. The first and most important is selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon you can trust and develop a good rapport with so that you can openly discuss your concerns and particular needs throughout the process of consultation, surgery, and aftercare.

Developing Realistic Expectations
While you may have an idea of what you want your ideal breast to look like, it is important to know that what nature has given you may influence the outcome you are hoping to achieve. Every woman’s breasts have unique attributes such as size, shape, nipple position and degree of sag. During your consultation with Dr. Jewell, he will take measurements to help qualify and quantify the differences that you may have. Ask him to show you before & after pictures that have similarities to your own breasts that will help you visualize an expected outcome. As an expert in breast surgery, he will try to match your wishes to your tissues.
For over 25 years, augmentation mammaplasty has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed. Now a well-tested operation, breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of the breast with surgically placed implants. There are several choices that need to be made by you and Dr. Jewell as you develop a plan for surgery, including, type, size, and shape of implants, as well as incision location and placement location.
A woman with large breasts is forced to live with shoulder, back, and neck pain. Breast reduction, also called reduction mammaplasty, enhances your overall appearance by making your breasts more proportional to the rest of your body. Large heavy breasts can interfere with normal physical activities and cause musculoskeletal pain, poor posture, headaches, breast pain, and skin irritations.
Breast lift, also called mastopexy, is an operation to improve the sagging of breasts and elevates nipple position onto the lifted breast mound. Pregnancy, lactation, weight loss or heredity factors can change a woman’s breast so that they appear sagging or pendulous and are no longer pert and full.
Women who already have implants may require surgery to maintain their outcomes by removing or exchanging implants as time and conditions demand. Dr. Jewell offers all forms of breast revision surgery. Please call and set up an appointment to further discuss your individual needs. It is most helpful in determining how best to proceed when a patient has her personal history of breast surgery, implant information, and imagining studies with her.
Surgery to treat breast cancer often results in a significant alteration to a woman’s breast(s) and can have a severe impact on her quality of life. Many women eligible for breast reconstruction following a breast cancer diagnosis are not being informed of their options. It is crucial to speak with both a plastic surgeon and an oncologist before deciding on a specific surgery.
