Communication is the most critical aspect of patient care. Results must match expectations. Without excellent communication, expectations cannot be matched. I spend a lot of time with my patients trying to determine what is the best operation for personal success and achievement of patient goals.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
When women feel satisfied with their breasts, they see them as an essential part of their femininity and sexuality. It’s no wonder then why so many women turn to surgery to increase breast size and contour.
In Daytona Beach, Florida, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ashley K. Lentz performs breast augmentation, which can give women the natural-looking and fuller bust line they desire.

Benefits to You
Breast augmentation (mammoplasty) enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breasts through the surgical placement of silicone or saline breast implants. Either smooth or textured implants can be used, and low, medium, and high profile breast implants are available. Additionally, patients can choose between round and anatomical implants.
While some women benefit from large breast implants, others prefer small breast implants to better fit their frame. During a consultation with Dr. Lentz, you and the doctor will pick the best breast implants for you.
One of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed each year, breast augmentation appeals to women of all ages and ethnic backgrounds. Women typically request the procedure for one or more of these reasons:
- Increase size and shape of small breasts
- Restore breast volume and contour after pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss
- Balance uneven breast appearance
- Reconstruct the breast after illness, injury, or mastectomy
- Create a balanced proportion with the rest of the body
- Increase self-confidence with clothing and without
While breast augmentation can create rounder, fuller breasts, you might also need a breast lift to raise your breasts and create the most satisfying result. Combining a breast lift and implants in a single surgery is called a breast augmentation with lift. Patients looking for a lift without a size increase should instead choose a breast lift without implants. During your consultation, Dr. Ashley K. Lentz will help you determine how to best achieve your goals.
The REVOLVE™ Advanced Adipose System (REVOLVE™ System) is an integrated system for high-quality fat processing designed in partnership with adipose transplantation pioneers and founders of the International Federation for Adipose Therapeutics and Science (IFATS).
A New Option: Fat Grafting
While most women considering breast augmentation continue to choose breast implants for their procedure, a new option is available for women looking for a more subtle enhancement. Dr. Ashley K. Lentz can use fat from your own body – removed during a liposuction procedure – to augment the size of your breasts.
Many women are intrigued by this procedure, which achieves body contouring and natural breast enlargement simultaneously. Fat removed during liposuction is purified and only select fat cells are transferred. While the body absorbs some of the fat, most of the grafted fat remains indefinitely.

The innovative Keller Funnel™ allows women who choose silicone gel implants to benefit from shorter incisions, improved comfort, and faster healing.
By using a lubricated funnel, Dr. Ashley K. Lentz can compress the implant through a smaller incision and insert it more precisely. Additionally, the Keller Funnel keeps the implant sterile with a “no touch technique.” This method shortens surgical time and reduces the risk of infection. Dr. Ashley K. Lentz has been certified to use the Keller Funnel for silicone breast implant augmentation.

Every surgery carries the risk of a complication, including elective cosmetic surgery. Complications are rare, but they do occur. CosmetAssure provides you with insurance coverage in the unlikely event a complication occurs with a board certified plastic surgeon. CosmetAssure is a solution to the lack of coverage for medical complications that can occur during or after your surgery.
What to Expect
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz performs breast augmentation as either an outpatient or inpatient in the hospital. She prefers to use textured silicone gel implants for a very natural look, and operates with the patient under general anesthesia, comfortably asleep throughout the surgery.
For the surgery, Dr. Ashley K. Lentz creates either a periareolar (around the perimeter of the nipple) or transaxillary (armpit) incision and then position the implants. She takes special precautions to ensure successful results by irrigating the area with an antibiotic solution before placing the implants, and by making the incisions so that your scars will be concealed along natural lines or creases.
After surgery, you can expect to return to light activities within 7 to 10 days and resume your normal routine, including exercise, within about 2 weeks. Follow Dr. Lentz’s post-surgical care directions closely during recovery for best results.
Your Improved Look
Dr. Ashley K. Lentz’s patients enjoy the feminine, sexy appearance and self-confidence that comes from their new bustline. It’s no surprise that most women who have breast augmentation to improve their appearance view their decision as one of the best they’ve ever made.
Breast Augmentation Cost
The price of breast implants is a factor in determining the overall cost of a breast augmentation procedure. The incision techniques used, the time required to perform the surgery, and the anesthesia used all also play a role in the final cost.
