About Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery is a highly advanced procedure that can help women achieve their desired silhouette. Through implantation, and sometimes fat transfer and grafting techniques, it’s possible to enhance size and shape in order to bring out a woman’s natural beauty and create an optimal balance of contour, and symmetry, and boost confidence.
At EVOLV Plastic Surgery in Toledo, Ohio, highly acclaimed plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Barone performs breast augmentation. He is a master of cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery, boasting impressive credentials in clinical practice and research. His achievements within the field have earned him recognition as an active member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery – reserved solely for Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons with expertise in aesthetic procedures.
How It Works
At EVOLV Plastic Surgery in Toledo, Ohio, Dr. Frank Barone provides excellent, comprehensive care to ensure the best possible outcome for breast augmentation procedures. At an accredited outpatient surgery center in Toledo, he utilizes pioneering 3D computer analysis, photo documentation, and extensive patient consultations for implant size choice, incision placement, and other safety considerations.
Each procedure begins with a light general or intravenous anesthetic administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist, followed by small incisions made of less than 2 inches, which are most often hidden in the crease below the breasts (inframammary fold). A precise pocket formation under the chest muscle pectoralis, or breast gland is made, all without violating the breast gland.
State-of-the-art cohesive gel implants are applied before safely closing any necessary incisions with dissolvable sutures. There is no need for drains post-surgery. Pain blocks ensure maximum comfort throughout your personalized journey toward improved body contour.

Breast augmentation can effectively treat many issues related to the shape, size, and position of the breasts. From congenitally underdeveloped or asymmetrical breasts, lack of fullness and projection; aging deflation, volume loss, or severe drooping – breast augmentation offers a solution for enhancing and restoring youthful contour!

How Breast Augmentation Works
At EVOLV Plastic Surgery, Dr. Frank Barone takes an individualized approach to every patient seeking breast augmentation with a thorough evaluation and assessment process that includes family history, examination, review of current options, 3D computer analysis for visual inspection, and photo documentation. Patients gain insight into all the necessary details, such as implant selection methods, incision sites, cost estimation, and recovery time planning – putting them in control to make informed decisions about their aesthetic surgical procedure experience and ensure optimal satisfaction.
Before The Procedure
Breast augmentation in Toledo is a smooth, comfortable experience – with medications administered before the surgery to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. An accredited outpatient surgery center in Toledo provides the setting for this life-changing experience, aided by highly qualified anesthesiologists and licensed nursing staff dedicated to providing excellent care under light general or intravenous anesthesia.
During The Procedure
With the utmost precision, Dr. Barone creates a pocket for the expected implant under the breast gland or chest wall muscle (pectoralis muscle), ensuring not to disturb the breast gland. To ensure that each individual receives optimal results, a trial sizing device is used. The patient is placed upright on the electric table to determine the ideal size of the implants, thus enhancing the patient’s body contour. Incisions are checked, inserted with a triple antibiotic solution, and closed with dissolvable internal sutures and dressings applied. Long-acting pain blocks reduce post-operative discomfort, and drains are typically not used.
After The Procedure
After undergoing surgery, recovery time is key. Although you might experience some discomfort and bruising in the area from swelling, your scars will gradually fade with time. Wearing a compression bandage or sports bra is recommended to help ensure proper healing and support for your implants during this period of adjustment. Medication can be prescribed if needed as well. Depending on what kind of job you have, when returning to work post-surgery, recovery time should generally not take too long (around two weeks); however, it’s best to avoid strenuous activities.
