What Will My Breasts Look Like After Implant Removal?

While the majority of women enjoy their breast augmentation results for many years, some patients express interest in removing their implants. There are a few potential reasons for this, including dissatisfaction with or a desire to change the size, shape, or type of implant; complications or concerns that may have arisen after the initial breast augmentation; or the simple wish […]

Fear of Scars in Breast lift and Reduction

One of the most common questions I get is: “What will the scars look like?” The word scar, in general, has a bad connotation and creates fear in most people. I prefer the term “incision lines” as compared to “scars.” There are few places where patients are more fearful about scars than their breasts. Breast reductions and breast lifts typically […]

When to Consider Breast Reduction

Persistent physical and emotional strain is a daily concern for many women who have disproportionately large breasts. Thankfully, this issue – which is medically known as macromastia or gigantomastia – can often be effectively resolved with breast reduction surgery, a procedure designed to remove tissue to make the breasts smaller, lighter, and more proportionate to one’s frame. During this treatment, […]

When to Consider Revision Breast Augmentation

Breast revision surgery can often be an excellent option for women who are not satisfied with the results of a previous breast augmentation, as well as for those whose aesthetic goals and/or desires have changed since their initial breast enhancement procedure. Some of the most common reasons to consider revision breast augmentation include: If you are experiencing capsular contracture, which […]

Breast Implant Feel Is Just as Important as Appearance

As plastic surgeons, we are trained to use a very refined eye to try to achieve the best appearance in anything we do. For breast augmentation, something I specialize in and have for nearly 11 years in practice, this involves striving to create the best shape and symmetry for the breasts. It is even commonplace at national meetings for plastic […]

Should I Massage My Breasts After Breast Implant Surgery?

At Boynton Plastic Surgery, all breast augmentation procedures I perform are subpectoral, meaning the implants are placed under the muscle. Following surgery, the top of the breasts initially appear excessively full because the muscle tightens right away. As the skin and muscle relaxes and stretches to accommodate added chest volume, the implants gradually “settle” into place. During this time, the […]

‘Flash Recovery’ Breast Augmentation – Boynton Plastic Surgery

I saw the hype on “flash recovery” breast augmentation in Los Angeles when a certain pop star went “public” about being back on stage and performing a concert three days later after undergoing breast augmentation. I began reading more about the technique and realized that the concepts published by Drs. John Tebbetts and Bill Adams in Dallas were reportedly similar […]

Incision Options for Breast Augmentation

/>At my practice, patients interested in breast augmentation typically have two incision options available to them: the inframammary incision (underneath the breast) and the periareolar incision (around the areola). Some surgeons also offer a transumbilical incision (in the belly button) and a transaxillary incision (in the armpit); however, I do not recommend either of these approaches as the former could […]

What Are My Breast Implant Options?

It is no longer a round world when it comes to breast implant options. In my practice, I offer many different breast implant options, including traditional silicone gel implants, highly cohesive or form-stable cohesive silicone gel “anatomic style” implants, and saline breast implants. Selecting the right breast implants will depend on a number of factors unique to every individual. During […]

Breast Lift Scars

During breast lift surgery, incisions will typically be made circumferentially around the areola, vertically in the lower aspect of the breast, and horizontally along the inframammary fold of the breast. Like all surgical procedures requiring incisions, the formation of scars after breast lift surgery is inevitable. Though the appearance and texture of scarring will vary depending on factors such as […]
