An Introduction to Breast Augmentation

Chicago Breast Augmentation Breast augmentation is a plastic surgery procedure used to correct, repair or enhance the size of a woman's breasts using silicone gel or saline implants. Here at Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology we can help you achieve the figure you desire. If you are considering this procedure, you should thoroughly understand how it can enhance your physique and what occurs during this type of cosmetic surgery.

Breast augmentation is a popular procedure because it can address many cosmetic issues – asymmetry, proportion or repair and enhancement. Perhaps the most common reason for breast augmentation is breast enlargement using silicone or saline implants. Many women wish to have a more proportional figure, and breast implants can provide them this helping to boost confidence and the fit of clothing.

Should you decide to move forward with a breast augmentation, you will first have a comprehensive consultation with our double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Niki Christopoulos. She will help you determine your preferred breast size and the implants that can best accommodate your aesthetic needs. Dr. Christopoulos will also explain how you should prepare for your surgery and what assistance you may need in the days following it. Your post-operative care is included in the cost of your procedure and provides comprehensive instruction to help you, until fully healed and can return to your normal activities.

Don’t let the size or shape of your breasts impact your self-esteem and social interactions. You deserve to feel body beautiful. Under the expert care of Dr. Christopoulos, breast augmentation is a safe and effective procedure that can help you look on the outside, how you feel on the inside. Patients typically experience a simple and uncomplicated recovery allowing them to enjoy their new shape and return to daily activity. Choosing cosmetic surgery with Dr. Christopoulos and Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology we can ensure that your procedure provides the look you want.

Does Coffee Really Help to Prevent Melanoma?

A recent article on suggested that "…drinking lots of coffee could reduce your risk of developing cancerous melanoma." While Starbucks is tasty and we all need to be able to enjoy a good cup of coffee from time to time, ensuring your safety with a thorough regular annual skin exam will give you far better peace of mind in your fight against cancer. Read these do's and don'ts from Board-Certified Dermatologist Dr. Carolyn Jacob for a list of things you can do to help prevent skin cancer.


  1. DO wear an SPF of 30 or higher every day.
  2. DO reapply sunscreen every 90 minutes or after swimming or sweating.
  3. DO keep sun protective clothing on when out in sun (UPF 50 or higher).
    • Ex: Tilley Hats & Children's Swimwear
  4. DO participate in outdoor activities before 10 am or after 4 pm.
  5. DO take a Vitamin D supplement if you are low in Vitamin D.
  6. DO get a spray tan if you want to have a golden glow.


  1. DON'T use tanning beds. They increase your risk of developing melanoma.
  2. DON'T lay out in the sun; even if only for a short amount of time. It leads to more wrinkles and skin cancer.
  3. DON'T treat acne with sunlamps. It can help temporarily, but causes damage and cancer.
  4. DON'T believe what you read on the Internet about Vitamin D deficiency and that tanning beds help. Beds are close to 100% UVA rays, not UVB rays
    which help with Vitamin D. UVA rays also penetrate more deeply into
    the skin and cause cancer and wrinkles.

Contact Chicago Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology by calling us today at (877) 410-3027 to schedule a skin examination with one of our board-certified dermatologists and to learn more about protecting your skin from the sun.
