Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Surgery in Columbia, MO

Breast enhancement, or breast enlargement, clinically known as augmentation mammaplasty, is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. The procedure increases breast size with the use of breast implants. Breast augmentation can help women who are dissatisfied with the current size of their breasts feel more confident by creating the larger, shapelier look they desire. Breast augmentation can also restore the loss of volume that results from aging, pregnancy or significant weight loss.


Breast augmentation surgery typically lasts one to two hours under general anesthesia, during which, Dr. Shock uses an inframammary incision to precisely position the implants. During your consultation, she will help you choose the most appropriate implant type and size based on your unique goals, body and lifestyle. Each breast augmentation procedure is unique and varies according to the patient.  Dr. Leslie Shock will work closely with you to develop a personalized plan that will select the optimal size and shape of implants to augment the contours of your body. Your overall health and breast health will be reviewed prior to the surgery as well. For women over 35 or ones with a family history of breast ovarian cancer, this includes a baseline screening mammogram.


As one of the few female plastic surgery providers in the area, Leslie Shock, MD has a distinct ability to genuinely understand the needs and goals of her female patients, helping them obtain the shapely, feminine physique they desire.
