“Breast Augmentation is the management of a patient’s expectations with their body’s limitations.” Board-certified plastic surgeon Louis P. Bucky, MD approaches each breast augmentation procedure with this philosophy in mind. His main goals when performing this popular procedure are patient safety and satisfaction, coupled with a natural-looking, long-lasting outcome.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to improve the shape and increase the size of a woman’s breasts through the use of breast implants. Dr. Bucky’s patients typically undergo this procedure to achieve a greater proportional balance, address asymmetrical concerns, or restore volume lost over time.
Your Individual Goals
Dr. Bucky will discuss your breast enlargement cosmetic surgery goals with you and define a realistic treatment plan. Based on your goals, the dimensions of your breast and body, and your tissue’s characteristics, you and Dr. Bucky will select the appropriate breast implants. In addition, you will determine the appropriate incision and position of your ideal implant in order to achieve the desired result. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions on how to prepare. You will also schedule a pre-operative appointment to review your medical history, take pre-operative photographs, and confirm your size choice with our new custom bra sizing system.

VECTRA® XT boasts a revolutionary technology that produces a three dimensional image of the patient’s existing appearance, plus a detailed projection of the potential outcome a patient may be able to achieve with a variety of implant options.
Your breast augmentation procedure generally takes less than one hour and will be performed under general anesthesia administered by a Board Certified Anesthesiologist and Board Certified Nurse Anesthetist at Pennsylvania Hospital or Tuttleman Surgery Center. Dr. Bucky works with a Board Certified operating team that has been together since 1997.
Dr. Bucky offers three incision options, which all offer different advantages. Depending on the goals and needs of each patient, Dr. Bucky will help you determine which approach is best:
- Inframammary (under the breast)
- Transaxillary (through the armpit, performed endoscopically)
- Periareolar (around the edge of the nipple)
Together, you and Dr. Bucky will decide the best location for your implants, while minimizing the visibility of any possible scarring.

Dr. Bucky Featured in Philadelphia Style Magazine, October 2018 Issue
Dr. Louis P. Bucky is widely recognized as a leader in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery and the team at Bucky Plastic Surgery takes pride in recognizing the latest trends in cosmetic surgery and utilizing advanced technology to meet the needs of patients in the Philadelphia area. Dr. Bucky, who performs over 400 breast surgeries annually, was recently featured in the October 2018 issue of Philadelphia Style Magazine, in which he was interviewed about the latest trend in breast augmentation sizing and selection.
So, What is the Current Trend in Breast Augmentation?
While breast augmentation remains a popular procedure, many women are choosing smaller sized implants. What has changed to bring forth this trend? Dr. Bucky explains, “The wellness industry has permeated many facets of our world, bringing forth a new body image. We’ve found that many of our patients desire a more athletic, proportional, and fit appearance…” Dr. Bucky explains that lower-profile implants offer women the opportunity to achieve their ideal breast size without worry of looking top-heavy. Additionally, mothers who were happy with their breasts before having children may feel their breast size or shape has changed after childbirth and breastfeeding. These moms want a solution for deflated breasts, but they don’t want an unnaturally augmented look. Smaller implants can restore their breasts and help them achieve a pre-baby appearance.
Have The Actual Breast Implants Changed?
Breast implants have evolved to offer women more options. Dr. Bucky, who has been at the forefront of breast implant technology as Chairman of the Allergan Advisory Board for breast augmentation and reconstruction, explains that it is not just the size of implants that dictate a patient’s final result, but also profile and firmness “Manufacturers have now designed five different types of implant styles, ranging from low to high – and everywhere in between.” Dr. Bucky helps his patients navigate the range of choices by offering advanced 3D imaging that allows them to preview possible breast augmentation outcomes before surgery.
Have There Been Advancements In Breast Augmentation Recovery?
Dr. Bucky utilizes strategic technology and thoughtful planning to minimize scarring and help his breast augmentation patients have an optimal recovery, which can be shorter and less painful than people may have traditionally associated with breast implant surgery. Dr. Bucky shared with Philadelphia Style that, “the majority of our patients have surgery on Friday, can drive on Monday, and are back at the gym two weeks later – without taking pain meds!”
