Breast Surgery Procedures
For detailed information about each of the breast surgery procedures offered by Dr. Larsen, visit the corresponding page. Below are summaries of the different operations.
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts using breast implants. At his practice in Atlanta, Dr. Larsen offers breast implants filled either with silicone gel or saline (a sterile, saltwater solution) and also performs breast augmentation using a patient’s own fat (called fat transfer breast augmentation).
The advantages of silicone gel-filled breast implants include a look and feel that most patients believe is softer and more natural. Women choosing silicone implants have the choice of Sientra® “gummy bear” implants or MENTOR® MemoryGel® implants.
Saline-filled implants have the advantage of requiring a smaller incision because they are filled with the saltwater solution after being inserted.
The fee for breast augmentation at Buckhead Plastic Surgery ranges from $4,500 to $6,500 and includes preoperative and postoperative appointments, anesthesia, and operating room fees.
Revision breast surgery is more complicated than the initial breast augmentation procedure and it’s important to find a surgeon with extensive experience performing the procedure. In some cases, Dr. Larsen may recommend using an “internal bra” called Strattice to help create optimal results.
Taking fat from an area of your body where it’s unwanted and using it to augment your breasts may sound too good to be true, but it is an effective technique for women who want a modest increase in breast size.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess tissue. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.
Breast lift surgery literally reshapes the breasts and can change them from flat and droopy to a higher, rounder, and more aesthetically pleasing shape. In some cases, Dr. Larsen may recommend combining the lift with augmentation using implants to increase the size of the breasts and add more perkiness and cleavage, restoring a more youthful look. The results of breast lift surgery can last for decades as long as patients maintain their weight and use proper supportive bras.
Women who have undergone a lumpectomy or mastectomy due to breast cancer can choose to reconstruct their breasts through plastic surgery. Dr. Larsen offers breast reconstruction using implants or surgical techniques that create a new breast mound using the patient’s own tissue.
Breast reduction is designed for women with large, pendulous breasts who may experience a variety of medical problems such as back pain as a result of the excessive weight. Breast reduction is more than just removing excessive tissue and fat from the breast.
The goal of a breast reduction surgery is to sculpt the breast into a smaller, perkier, more youthful breast. This procedure can only be done by placing incisions on the breast. The goal of surgery is to have as few scars as possible placed in the most inconspicuous areas.
