There are many reasons our patients choose Dr. Burgess for their Portland Breast Augmentation procedure including:

  • Provide greater volume to breasts for those that feel their breast size is generally too small
  • Enhance body proportion or to create symmetry between two unequal breasts
  • Regain the breast shape that women may have had prior to having children or weight loss
  • Increase self-confidence


A breast augmentation procedure is one of the most common cosmetic procedures in the Oregon area. Ideal recipients of breast augmentation should be capable of weighing the benefits and risks of the procedure, and they should be making an autonomous decision—meaning the patient wishes to undergo the surgery by her own choice. Women should be in good health and over the age of 18 years with good family support. If over the age of 30, one should have a healthy mammogram within one year of surgery. One should not be pregnant or nursing, and smoking is advised against.


Saline or silicone breast implants may be used during your breast augmentation procedure. Saline breast implants are filled with sterile saltwater during surgery. Because saline implants are initially empty, they can be placed through a small incision which makes the size adjustable. Silicone breast implants come pre-filled and sometimes require a slightly larger incision. Some people believe silicone may have a more natural feel.

Currently, the FDA recommends that a woman be at least 22 years of age and understand that other studies (like an MRI) may be recommended to follow the silicone implant. Another implant option is the Ideal Implant® which is a structured saline implant that has a silicone shell but no silicone gel. The implant offers a more natural look and feel of a silicone gel. By using a series of encased implant shells, it is able to control the position of saline giving you the benefits of both saline and silicone implants.


After having breast augmentation surgery, it is often recommended to get routine MRI screenings to check for implant integrity. Some silicone implant ruptures can go undiagnosed, which is where the name “silent rupture’ comes from. Ultrasound imaging is the most convenient way to ensure that your silicone implants are still intact. Burgess Plastic Surgery is proud to offer HRUS to our breast implant patients. High Resolution Ultrasound is being used as an imaging tool for Dr. Burgess and her nurses to visualize the breast implant.
