Breast surgery procedures are some of the most commonly performed plastic surgery treatments in the U.S. Women who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts can choose from an array of state-of-the-art treatments to help them achieve their ultimate enhancement goals. Breast augmentation with implants can give the breasts more volume; breast lift surgery addresses sagging and excess skin to tighten the breast area for a more youthful, “perky” appearance. Breast reduction surgery helps those suffering from the discomfort and self-consciousness associated with having overly large breasts by eliminating excess fat from the a bustline; creating a more proportional body frame.
Dr. John LeRoy uses new Exparel® pain management technology to help breast surgery patients remain comfortable during plastic surgery recovery. Injected into surgical incisions at the end of a procedure, this new analgesic provides up to 72 hours of continuous pain relief after breast surgery. Be sure to follow your surgeon’s exact pre-surgical and post-surgical care instructions to further expedite recovery and minimize the risk of plastic surgery complications.
The links below will take you to detailed descriptions of our breast augmentation with implants, breast lift, and breast reduction procedures here in the Atlanta, Georgia area. Dr. John L. LeRoy invites you to learn more about these effective procedures and to contact our practice for a consultation.
Breast Augmentation with Implants
Breast augmentation, or enlargement with implants, can add volume to the breasts and improve their contour. Breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and types, and can help you attain your goals by giving your breasts a fuller, more sensual appearance.
A breast lift involves the removal of excess fat and skin from the breasts to reduce the appearance of sagging. After the excess has been eliminated, the remaining skin is tightened and the nipples may need to be repositioned to a higher position, to give the breasts a more youthful appearance.
Breast reduction procedures are designed for women who experience pain, discomfort, and/or embarrassment from having breasts that are too large for their bodies. This treatment removes the excess fat and skin from the breasts and re-proportions them for a bustline that is better balanced with your overall body frame.
Breast Revision Surgery (Implant Removal/Replacement)
Dr. John LeRoy offers breast revision surgery for patients who are not satisfied with their results after undergoing breast augmentation surgery at other practices. The dissatisfaction may arise from fluctuation in weight or a patient simply changing their mind about the desired look of their breasts. Often patients come in for breast revision surgery when they wish for a smaller or bigger implant size or a more lifted placement. And while post-surgical breast complications are rare, if the correct precautions are taken, breast revision surgery can be the solution for implant wrinkling, capsular contracture (hardening of the implant area), or implant displacement.
Depending on the needs of the patient, a breast lift, new implant, or implant removal may be needed to correct and revise the look of the breasts. For more information on breast revision surgery, contact the office of Dr. John LeRoy to schedule a consultation.
