A breast augmentation procedure uses round saline or silicone implants that increase the size or improve the shape and projection of the breasts. Dr. Burgess is experienced and can guide patients through the necessary steps, as well as provide complimentary breast implant sizing and Crisalix 3D simulator.
Patients who struggle with breasts that have begun to sag over time turn to breast lift (or mastopexy) as a means to provide a more youthful appearance. Using excision and sometimes liposuction, excess skin and tissue are removed and the breast and nipple are lifted to achieve the desired result.
Patients who struggle with breasts beginning to sag or lose volume may turn to a breast lift with augmentation. Sometimes patients need more volume, so an implant is added to the lift (mastopexy) for augmentation.
A breast reduction is a procedure offered to patients who struggle with overly large, heavy breasts, which can also lead to painful symptoms. Dr. Burgess removes more excess skin and breast tissue to aid in relieving the patient’s symptoms.
Breast Cancer reconstruction is a specialized group of surgical procedures which recreate the breast, following a mastectomy or lumpectomy. There are several different options to recreate the breast and Dr. Burgess guides her patients towards the best option for their individual situation with an optimal outcome.
Breast implant removal also known as explanation, removes implants from breast augmentation or reconstruction patients. Breast implants do not last forever, so even women who are happy with their enhancement may need to have their implants removed and replaced, sometimes more than once, throughout their lives.
HRUS can be used by Dr. Burgess and her nurse(s), as a screening tool, to detect fluid collections known as seromas, or to evaluate the integrity of your breast implant shell for any fractures, ruptures, or other potential issues.
