What You Need To Know About Breast Lifts and Austin Breast Implants

A breast augmentation alone on a perfectly shaped breast is a straight-forward procedure offered by most plastic surgeons and, unfortunately, some unqualified folks as well. Just because the procedure is common does not mean you should let your guard down when it comes to evaluating your surgeon. In fact, you should be even more vigilant. Those who are skilled and artful always obtain better results. Do you simply want a breast implant placed behind your breast tissue, or do you want someone who knows how to work magic with a variety of breast implants and sizes that are currently available? Don’t kid yourself, there is a difference.

Receiving a breast lift and an implant is an entirely different story. This combination requires more skill and experience. It also happens to be the procedure that results in the most lawsuits (read between the lines.)

A breast lift tightens the skin of the breast. Typically little to no tissue is removed. Those who are good candidates for a breast lift also have weakened, soft tissue that has been stretched and worn out with time and pregnancies or weight changes—tightening of the skin keeps this tissue, and you can bet it will sag over time.

The BAR procedure – Breast Augmentation and Reduction – is my innovative advancement of the breast lift with implants procedure. The saggy tissue is actually removed and the breast is reshaped on top of a breast implant. Think of it as my “plus/minus” procedure: the breast implant adds fullness to the top of the breast and the reduction removes the sagging tissue at the bottom of the breast. This is the ultimate form of and next revolution in breast enhancement.

I have been working on this procedure for over ten years and have successfully completed over 500 cases. It has proven to be safe, reliable and my patients have been very happy with the results. It gives me, the surgeon, true flexibility to adjust the size and shape of your breast with exacting standards by adjusting the size of the implant and the amount of tissue removed.
