Your Options for a Personalized Result

When you meet with Dr. Beckenstein for your consultation, he will provide a great deal of information about the procedure. He will also perform an extensive examination, during which he will analyze your breast dimensions carefully. After discussing your aesthetic goals, BOTH of you will develop a plan for your augmentation—including breast implant type, size, and placement, as well as incision site. Dr. Beckenstein will listen carefully to all your expectations and concerns. He will assist you with the decisions that are necessary to reach your goal of a successful breast augmentation.

Breast Implants

Dr. Beckenstein offers many types of breast implants. They are available in a variety of sizes and can be filled with saline or silicone gel, depending on patient preference and needs. Silicone gel implants are available for all women over the age of 22. Based on your current breast dimensions and desired result, Dr. Beckenstein will recommend the appropriate implant to assure a natural‐looking outcome without an obviously “augmented” appearance.

Incision Site

When performing breast augmentation, Dr. Beckenstein offers three options for incision site (see illustration):

  • Inframammary: This incision is placed beneath the breast, where the new breast crease will form. It is very well concealed and enables the lower curve of the breast to be shaped.
  • Periareolar: Implants can be placed through an incision along the lower edge of the areola.
  • Transaxillary: This incision is placed in a natural crease in the underarm.

At your confidential consultation, Dr. Beckenstein will help you decide which incision is best for you by taking into consideration factors such as implant size, shape, and placement (above or below the chest muscle). He also considers aesthetics related to the location of the surgical scars. Each approach has distinct advantages and disadvantages, which Dr. Beckenstein will discuss with you in detail.

Breast Augmentation Incision locations and types

Breast Implant Placement

After making the incision, Dr. Beckenstein creates a space, called the pocket, for the breast implant. Placement options for the pocket include:

  • Subglandular: Above the chest muscle and beneath the breast tissue
  • Subpectoral: Beneath the breast tissue and the chest muscle
  • Dual‐plane: A combination of the above two techniques

Implant placement largely depends on your natural breast anatomy and desired goals. Dr. Beckenstein prefers the subpectoral approach for the majority of his patients, but he often uses either the dual‐plane or subglandular method for women who have marginal sagging (ptosis) or less skin elasticity. Dr. Beckenstein always strives to achieve a natural appearance.

Meet Dr. Beckenstein

Your Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Beckenstein performs breast augmentation as an outpatient procedure in one of several area hospitals, which offer important safety advantages over office‐based surgery. This procedure generally takes 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete. Incisions are carefully placed so they’re well concealed and scars are minimized. For saline implants, the incision is approximately 1 inch in length. Through this incision, Dr. Beckenstein creates the pocket where the implant will be placed. After the implant is in place, incisions are sutured, and your breasts will be supported with a light dressing and surgical bra. Dr. Beckenstein will thoroughly discuss all these details with you during your consultation.

Dr. Michael Beckenstein at St. Vincent’s is the BEST. I did lots of research and could not be more pleased with my own breast reduction he performed last July. Too, he had to correct a previously botched BR I had done in 2011 by someone else. You’ll like his staff as much as you will like him. He’s excellent!! My rheumatologist gave me his name. I could not be happier with the results. Thank you, Dr. B!😊

Dr. Beckenstein and his entire staff are miracle workers! 2 1/2 weeks before a scheduled abdominal hysterectomy, the thought came to me: why am I not having an abdominoplasty at the same time? I filled out the consult request form, and Dr. Beckenstein replied within hours... he told me later he was at the Iron Bowl when he got my request! Monday, his staff fit me in when it was discovered that Dr. Beckenstein was available and my pre-scheduled surgical time also worked for him! His staff went above and beyond to help manage this financially for me as well. I’m now 12 days post surgery, and I can not believe the changes in my body. I feel better every day and am so grateful to Dr. Beckenstein and his wonderful team for making my Christmas miracle happen!

He transformed a very mediocre breast reconstruction into what I remember my natural breast were. I feel like myself again. It’s been 15 years of being disappointed each time I saw my reflection. Today I smile and am so grateful for Dr. Beckenstein’s gift and talent he shares with so many. I feel feminine for the first time in so many years. He is truly the best choice for breast reconstruction.

He is truly the "king" of the boobs. At 67 I was diagnosed with cancer and had a double mastectomy. A little less than a year later I am working out with a personal trainer and moving on. Except for the day of the surgery the pain was not bad. When I would go in for check-ups he would say how great things looked but there were times I wondered. I had reconstructive surgery started the day of my mastectomy. Never had any infection or problems. Now things look amazing and I am sure when the "finishing" touches are done they will be better than the originals. I would never let any other plastic surgeon operate on me for anything. He really does care.

From Huntsville, Al & Dr. Beckenstein performed a bilateral breast reduction. I chose this doctor because he was 1. Board certified 2. His reviews were phenomenal (so I had to at least give him a shot right). During my consultation he already knew what issues that came with my size & he was respectful about it. Dr. Beckenstein’s staff is patient, knowledgeable & efficient. I saw from other surgeons in the area that staff wasn’t as respectful & the wait time was long. Definitely not the case here. Every last person @ this office plays an important role in making everything run smoothly & I couldn’t have asked for more. I made the best choice. If you are looking @ this review & haven’t scheduled your consultation I advise you to do so immediately, like now, as soon as they open @ 8:30. Also my girls look like a work of art!!!!!!!!!

I was diagnosed with cancer in one breast but elected to have a double mastectomy. Dr. B is a perfectionist and believe me when I say that is a good thing. He was able to save my nipples and honestly if you did not know that I had the surgery done, you would not be able to tell by looking. The scaring is very minimal. I did not want to go "big" and Dr. B and his staff were very mindful of my wishes even though they tried to talk me into DD's. I could not have asked for a nicer, more attentive doctor and staff.

I have nothing but wonderful and positive things to say about my experience with Dr. Beckenstein and his awesome team!! Whenever I have had to call in with questions the receptionist is always very cordial and connects me with the right person and information. Dr. Beckenstein and his team values your time; my appointments have been very prompt and efficient and I know that when I schedule my appointments I am not wasting valuable time sitting in the waiting room well beyond my appointment time. My husband has also taken notice of this and has been very impressed. For starters, aside from the wonderful efficiency at each appointment, the initial consult was extremely impressive!! Dr. Beckenstein uses modern technology to help in determining the potential outcome of a breath augmentation. After having two kids, and pumping for a year with both I was not happy with the way my breast looked. I wanted them to be filled out again and not rely on bras to give me the look that I wanted. I did not want an obviously augmented look and Dr. Beckenstein listened to my concerns and he delivered beautiful results!! I am one month and three days post surgery and I couldn't be happier with my results!! Also, the follow up and post op appointments have been great as well!! I highly recommend Dr. Beckenstein to anyone who desires a breast augmentation!

I must share my experience with all. Nine years ago I had breast cancer and Dr. Beckenstein was the doctor that took care of my breast reconstruction with implants. Now, to the present day. Three months ago I was again diagnosed with recurrent breast cancer. I have been seen by numerous doctors from The Woman's Imaging in Denver Colorado, Slaon Kettering in New York and Johns Hopkins in Washington DC. Every single doctor and nurse that has seen my breasts are shocked and in total surprise to see how beautiful they look and always comment on the quality of work. Every doctor has asked me who my plastic surgeon was and I am so proud to utter the name Dr. Beckenstein. I was very happy after my surgery nine years ago but to have others comment and see the expression on their faces nine years later just makes me so happy. Now I am quite sad the a surgeon in DC will be ruining the works of Dr Beckenstein. I wish doctor Beckenstein could be my doctor once again but asking him to fly to D.C. Is asking a little much. In short, he is by far the best plastic surgeon you will ever encounter and for those that live in Birmingham-- you are blessed. Thank you Dr. Beckenstein!! Tonya Whittington

Our story may be a little different from others but it's an important story in knowing why to choose Dr. Michael Beckenstein. There was a little girl across the ocean that had been badly burned as a toddler. As she grew, so did the scars. Our prayer was to find a doctor that would be willing to help us help her. My husband called Dr. Beckenstein and began to tell him of this child in need on the other side of the world and before my husband could finish the story, Dr. B said, "I'll do it...no problem." Dr. Beckenstein committed to help our family give this child something that I thought may be impossible. He has gone beyond just being her surgeon... He has shown us kindness beyond anything I could have imagined. There is no one that I would trust more. We have had approximately 14 surgeries and we have gone weekly into his office for the past 5 years. After each surgery, the scars are being erased and I'm humbled by the gift (his surgical ability) that God has given this man. And then, there's his team...oh my his team...they are just like him. Committed, professional and the kindest people I have ever met. They are a reflection of him. I cannot imagine going through this without Dr. Beckenstein and his entire team. They have been an answered prayer for me and my family and have given our daughter something she never believed could happen. We are forever grateful to Dr. Beckenstein. 5 stars is not enough for this review. 🙂

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Beckenstein and his staff. They are all great. Dr. Beckenstein did my breast lift and tummy tuck after weight loss and I am so happy with the results.

I can't even begin to say enough good things about Dr. Beckenstein and his practice! I had a mastectomy with immediate reconstruction somewhere else almost 6 months ago and Dr. Beckenstein is doing a revision (we are pretty much starting at square one so more like a full reconstruction) to repair all the issues that came from that. We haven't even finished the final stages yet but the results are already better than I expected..I feel more like myself than I have in so long! His staff is wonderful and his nurse Savanah is amazing! If you are looking for an excellent surgeon and team that are kind, compassionate, and truly care about their patients look no further!

It has been such a pleasure being a patient of Dr. Beckenstein and his wonderful staff. I am 6 months out from surgery and could not have asked for better results. My area of concern posed a challenge. Prior to choosing Dr. Beckenstein I consulted with several surgeons, but never felt confident in going forward. After meeting with him I was certain he would be the best surgeon to handle my situation. I would recommend Dr. Beckenstein to anyone looking for a surgeon with compassion and expertise.

Dr Beckenstein showed amazing compassion to me and three other women with breast cancer. His father passed away and Dr Beckenstein was in NY when it happened. He flew back that night because he had four of us on his surgery schedule and he took care of us. He made sure we were alright the next day and he went back to NY for the funeral. dr Beckenstein could have stayed up in NY, but he honored his commitment to me. I cannot say how much that meant to me. He is compassionate and dedicated to his patients. I don't know of any other doctor who would have done this. Besides this, he did an amazing thing for me as far as my reconstruction. His staff is great too.

The care and service that Dr. Beckenstein and his staff provide are unmatched. They provide you with an enormous amount of information to educate you fully prior to surgery and are always available to answer questions. Dr. Beckenstein personally visited to check on me after surgery and I couldn't be pleased more with my results. I recommend him daily and wouldn't trust my care in the hands of any other provider. He is an expert that listens to EVERY detail, want, and concern!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does breast augmentation cost?

Several factors affect the cost of breast augmentation, which is why we can’t put breast augmentation prices on our website. During your consultation, you will be provided with a written price estimate that is personalized for you and accounts for hospital fees, anesthesia, breast implants, and other factors. Silicone implants, a favorite of many patients, are more expensive than saline. While it is necessary to consider cost, be sure to choose a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery for optimal safety and results.

Is breast augmentation recovery painful?

Most breast augmentation patients are moderately sore for 2 to 3 days and find that prescription pain medication is helpful. Expect your breasts to feel tight for the first week due to swelling and stretching of the breast skin and chest muscles. This varies with each patient’s anatomy and the surgical technique that is used.

When can I exercise after breast augmentation?

Patients can and should begin walking the day of surgery, but nothing strenuous.  After about 2 weeks, most women can resume low-impact exercises such as walking on a treadmill, riding a stationary bike, or using an elliptical machine. It is important that you avoid chest exercises like push-ups or anything that involves reaching or heavy lifting. Most patients will need to wait 4 to 6 weeks before resuming strenuous exercise.

Can I get fat transfer breast augmentation?

Fat harvested from another part of the body can provide a subtle increase in breast size, but not the dramatic results implants create. Fat transfer can be used to enhance breast augmentation results by softening the outline of a breast implant or creating improved symmetry. Dr. Beckenstein has been using fat transfer to enhance the results of breast reconstruction for many years, and he will discuss your options for fat transfer breast augmentation at your consultation.

My breasts are different sizes. Can breast augmentation help?

Certainly. Many women choose this procedure because they want their breasts to be the same size. Dr. Beckenstein can enlarge the smaller breast or enlarge both breasts using implants of different sizes.

Can I get a tummy tuck along with breast augmentation?

Dr. Beckenstein can safely perform breast augmentation in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck and liposuction. These custom combination procedures are called a mommy makeover because they are popular with women after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Will my enhanced breasts look fake?

It’s a common misconception that it’s obvious when a woman has undergone breast augmentation. In fact, many of the women who Dr. Beckenstein in Birmingham for breast augmentation choose this procedure to achieve an enhanced, feminine shape that is not overly large or has that “augmented, fake look.” Placing implants beneath the chest muscle and carefully choosing the right implant size can contribute to a more feminine, but still very natural, look. Choosing anatomically shaped gummy bear breast implants can also make the breasts appear more natural. To see results attained by some of his actual patients, view our photo gallery online.

Can breast augmentation improve the look of sagging breasts?

Breast augmentation can improve the appearance of slightly sagging breasts by filling out the stretched skin. Women with more significantly sagging breasts might better benefit from a breast lift, or a combination breast augmentation and lift when fuller breasts are desired. Dr. Beckenstein will perform a thorough physical examination during your consultation to help him recommend the most appropriate surgical plan for your body and cosmetic goals.

Can I breastfeed after breast enlargement surgery?

While actual results depend on a variety of factors, many women are able to successfully breastfeed after breast augmentation surgery. If you plan to breastfeed, be sure to inform Dr. Beckenstein before your surgery so he can minimize any impact to the milk ducts and glands.

If you would like to learn more about breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty), you can request your comprehensive consultation online or feel free to speak with an office associate at  (205) 933-9308. Dr. Beckenstein’s office associates will be delighted to answer any questions you might have and arrange for you to speak with him in person.
