Breast Implant Surgery - Boston's South Shore / Cape Cod
Dr. Hamori and Dr. DiEdwardo are breast specialists and have been performing breast augmentation for more than 20 years. Surgical incisions are small due to the use of the Keller Funnel which allows safe placement of breast implants. Our surgeons perform a quick recovery protocol so that patients can return to work in just a few days.
“ I thank Dr. Hamori for changing my life and making me feel like I should.Thanks, A.C.”
“It is obvious you take great pride in offering top, top quality careSincerely yours, D.S.”
Choosing between silicone and saline breast implants
During your surgical consult, your sugeon will guide you in the selection of the type and style of implant. Thinner patients may prefer the more natural feel and appearance of a gel implant, whereas patients who have more breast tissue may like the fullness of a saline implant.
Breast augmentation with fat grafting
Your surgeon can also can perform breast augmentation using fat grafting — instead of, or in addition to, implants. Fat is harvested from a patient’s hips, abdomen or thighs, and grafted into the breast for a natural look. For more information, please contact Dr. Hamori or Dr. DiEdwardo.

A common preference is round smooth implants placed partially beneath the pectoralis muscle. While, this procedure may cause a bit more discomfort postoperatively, Drs. Hamori and DiEdwardo believe the pectoralis major muscle helps support the long-term shape and position of the implant. Implants in this position also allow mammograms to be more easily read by radiologists. Your surgeon will work closely with you to select the options that work best for your particular body in an intimate one-on-one consultation.

The art and science of breast implants
To reduce any visible scars and to achieve the most natural looking results, your surgeon utilizes small incisions placed either beneath the breast in the natural skin fold or along the edge of the areola.

Breast augmentation testimonials:
“After having and nursing five babies I was very interested in a breast augmentation. A few close friends recommended Dr. Hamori. Upon meeting I knew I had found the woman I wanted to work with. I had my surgery a few days ago. I loved everything about my experience. I trusted Dr. Hamori to use her judgment and pick the size after expressing my goal. The staff, nurses and anesthesiologist were amazing! I know I’ll be thrilled with the end result and am grateful I found such an amazing doctor and facility. Thanks so much Dr. Hamori and staff!”MaybeCforme, RealSelf review
“Being an RN, I researched breast implants for a while. Dr. Hamori was highly regarded by her medical colleagues and they recommended me to her. From my first meeting with her, I felt comfortable and confident with her knowledge and expertise. Your staff is just outstanding. Everyone makes the whole experience very personal—from the office appointment to the surgical day itself.
I am so glad I did this for myself. My self-esteem got a boost and I can finally wear clothes and look in proportion. I thank Dr. Hamori for changing my life and making me feel like I should.Thanks, A.C.”
“Dr. Hamori and staff, Thank you for your wonderful support! I knew that I chose the right place for my procedure. You are a very caring and supportive staff. Thanks for everything.M.N.”
“Dear Dr. Hamori,
It has been a year since you performed my surgery and I wanted to let you know how happy I am with all that you did. To have both a Mastopexy and Abdominalplasty at the same time was a decision I have no regret making. You made the recovery very manageable and were always reassuring. In fact, my recovery was quick and I could not be more pleased with the results.
The outcome is far better than I could have imagined, so much so my husband had the courage to have you evaluate him for a procedure. He stated to you how thrilled he was with my results. After 31 years of marriage, we feel like newlyweds again. Not to mention how it has boosted my self-esteem. I felt and looked so much older than I am. I am more youthful now and I enjoy shopping for things that are always nicer when they fit properly. I no longer keep my hands in front of my stomach to try to cover up, in fact I could not be more proud.
Last but not least, I cannot say enough great things about your staff. They too are very professional and always willing to answer the many questions I had. Your state-of-the-art surgical center is very reassuring and definitely top notch.
Dr. Hamori, it is obvious you take great pride in offering top, top quality care and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for changing my life.Sincerely yours, D.S.”
“Dr. Hamori & Staff,
I am writing this letter to personally thank Dr. Hamori and her entire staff for my recent plastic surgery. July 12 marked my one year anniversary of my breast augmentation surgery and all turned out wonderful! From my very first consultation visit to my one year visit, Dr. Hamori and staff have been extremely helpful, kind and understanding especially in answering all of my questions and concerns, and I had quite a few questions, especially the days immediately following my surgery. I will absolutely not hesitate to recommend your office and your services to anyone that I know, nor will I hesitate in returning to your office should I look to have another procedure done in the future. Thank you again for making my experience a wonderful one!Warm regards, T.C.”
