Plastic surgery hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down over the last few years! Breast enhancement procedures remain among the most popular surgical options. While there are various types of breast enhancement procedures, breast augmentation with saline or silicone implants continues to be the most sought-after at Dr. Burgess’s Portland practice.

Occasionally we have Breast and Body Events where we highlight two of our most common breast surgeries, breast augmentation and breast lift (mastopexy). These can often can be done in conjunction with one another, if you are a good candidate.
If you have thought about having breast augmentation or breast lift, we are sure that there are a lot of questions going through your mind. We hear a variety of reasons why women come in for a consultation, when they try to describe their goals. Some simply want to look and feel more natural. Some want to restore what they once had, prior to breast feeding, weight changes or the natural process of aging. Others want a very round, augmented look.
Beautiful and truly wondrous, bearing children is one of life’s miracles. Miraculous as it is, pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can each take a toll on a woman’s body. Disheartened by their now-changed figure, mothers are increasingly turning to cosmetic surgical solutions in hopes of restoring their post-baby body.
For mothers, Mother’s Day is a special time to recognize and thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made for your children. However—not all those sacrifices must be permanent. During pregnancy your body goes through so many changes, and some of those changes may cause your body to look less like the “you” of previous years.
Pregnancy and breast feeding do a number on a mother’s body that good diet and exercise simply can’t fix. If, after you have spent months or even years breast feeding, you are unhappy with how your breasts have changed, you may consider a breast lift with augmentation with Dr. Burgess.
If you are dissatisfied with the shape or size of your breasts, consider getting breast implants to enhance your figure. Dr. Burgess performs a variety of breast enhancement procedures and may recommend cohesive gel breast implants for your breast augmentation surgery. These are the fifth generation of silicone implants and have proven to be very effective for enhancing the breasts with natural-looking results. Cohesive silicone gel implants retain their shape and also look and feel like your own natural breast tissue.
