Cosmetic Breast Surgery in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
There are many choices in breast enlargement, and we believe it’s important to be given all of your 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 can have smooth or textured surfaces.
The consultation for breast lift first begins with a question. Are you happy with the size of your breasts? From this point, we can then decide if we will be augmenting, reducing, or keeping the same size as we lift the breast. We stress to our patients that gravity is unyielding. The options for 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 your primary plastic surgeon, the outcome of a breast enhancement surgery may not be what you 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 breast implants of a different type or size may need to be placed.
Breast reduction is performed on patients with large, pendulous breasts to not only reduce the size and weight but also to lift the breast to a more youthful position on the chest wall. Patients will have less shoulder and back pain, as well as less bra strap grooving afterward.
