Breast implants are celebrating 50 years of making women happy and satisfied with the way they look this year.  Since 1962, much advancement has been made and the procedure's future looks even brighter.

Breast implants have an interesting history.  The truth is for five decades doctors have been performing breast augmentation. 2012 marks the golden anniversary of these implants. The first breast augmentation procedure was performed in 1962, but it wasn't until the mid 80's that this procedure became more popular and was openly talked about.  316,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in 2011 alone and it is still one of the the most requested procedures that are performed here at Dr. Conkright's office and across the United States.  Because of the advancements in technology, doctors have developed safer and more effective implants then ever before.  We now have both saline and silicone implants available from three FDA approved companies.  The main reason to have breast augmentation continues to be to improve self image and confidence.  Most women in this practice seek either to be restored to pre childbearing appearance, or to correct asymmetry and under development.


We are excited to look forward at what the future holds!  With the improvements in this surgery our patients are back to normal activities with in a few hours and enjoying their enhanced confidence right away.  So celebrate yourself and 50 years of beautiful breasts with an augmentation.
