There are many choices in breast enlargement and we believe it is important to be given all of the options at the time of consultation. There are saline and gel implants, as well as expandable implants and shaped implants. The gel implants come in different consistencies and with smooth or textured surfaces.
The consultation for breast lift first begins with a question. Are you happy with the size of the breast? From this point, we can then decide if we will be augmenting, reducing or keeping the size the same as we lift the breast. We stress to our patients that gravity is unyielding. The options of each type of lift and whether an implant will also be used will be discussed at consultation.
REVISIONAL BREAST SURGERY
Sometimes, despite the best efforts and intentions of the primary plastic surgeon, the outcome of a breast enhancement surgery may not be what the patient had expected. Breast implants are one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in the US and although rare, sometimes the surgery may need to be re-done and new, different size or type of breast implants may need to be placed.
Breast reduction is done for patients with large pendulous breasts to not only reduce the size and weight but also lift the breast to a more youthful location on the chest wall. Patients will have less shoulder and back pain and less bra strap grooving afterwards.
VECTRA REAL LIFE IMAGING
Dr. Salzman is proud to introduce the Vectra™ multidimensional imaging station to his plastic surgery practice in Louisville, KY. Multidimensional imaging allows the potential plastic surgery patient the ability to see the results of their surgery in real life from any angle or view. Using this exciting new technology, we are now able to show the results of different sizes and shapes of breast implants as well as the potential outcomes of facial cosmetic surgeries such as facelifts, nose reshaping, chin implants, LiteShape™, lasers and fillers.
A Mommy Makeover uses a customized combination of procedures to change the ratios of bust-line and waist-line and provides a flatter tummy. It may include a Breast Lift, Augmentation or Reduction (any asymmetry will be corrected), along with a Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction. Each patient has different needs and is looking for lasting results.
