Maui Breast Augmentation (Breast Enlargement) Plastic Surgery

  • Sub-fascial
  • Sub-muscular

You can add volume to your breasts and add curves to your profile all in one procedure: breast enlargement surgery. Some women choose larger breasts to balance their overall appearance. In this way, breast augmentation creates an attractive symmetry that suits your natural beauty. You might simply want larger breasts, or wish to regain the shape you lost after pregnancy or due to aging or weight loss.

Maui plastic surgeon Dr. Yu offers sub-muscular and sub-fascial placement of implants, and offers both saline and silicone implant options in a range of implant sizes and profiles. Dr. Yu can also combine a breast lift (mastopexy) with implant placement. Each procedure has advantages based on your particular situation and your desired results.

Dr. Yu’s extensive training and experience allow him to perform surgeries with speed and accuracy while making careful decisions to customize procedures to meet your needs. These skills can reduce your recovery time and reduce the chances of complications.

Women in Maui have breast augmentation for many different reasons, including:

  • Breasts have lost volume due to pregnancy, breast-feeding, or aging
  • Breasts have always been smaller than desired
  • Breasts look too small in proportion to the rest of the woman’s body
  • Breasts have begun to sag due to aging, pregnancy, breast-feeding, or weight loss
  • Asymmetrical breasts (one breast is larger than the other)
  • Clothes do not fit attractively
  • Lack of cleavage
  • Improved self esteem and confidence

When you choose Dr. Yu to perform the breast augmentation procedure that is right for you, you can have confidence that you’ve chosen a highly skilled surgeon and a surgical team that consistently provides exceptional care and thoughtful attention.

You will have private, personal consultation with Dr. Yu. During this time, Dr. Yu will realistically discuss your goals with you as you consider breast enlargement plastic surgery.

About Kahului Breast Enlargement Plastic Surgery

For this two-hour surgery, you will be given twilight or general anesthesia and will remain asleep during the entire breast enhancement procedure. Dr. Yu will make a small incision. You have incision options:

  • Periareolar (around the edge of the areola)
  • Inframammary (under the breast)- the most common incision site
  • Trans Axillary (in the armpit)

Through the incision, he will insert breast implants either under a layer of the muscle (subfascial) or behind the muscle wall ( sub muscular). After implant placement, Dr. Yu closes the incision. Dr. Yu may use surgical tape instead of sutures in order to reduce the appearance of scars resulting from your surgery.


Breast enlargement surgery patients report some discomfort to moderate discomfort as they recover from the procedure. Dr. Yu will prescribe medication to combat any discomfort. You will need rest the first day but are encouraged to walk around the day of surgery. You should not lift more than 10 pounds for the first 10 days of your recovery. Your nipples may be sore for a week, and your breast area may be bruised and tender. This tenderness and bruising should go away within a few weeks. Scars fade with each passing week.
