What to Expect with Breast Procedures:

Women with small or underdeveloped breasts and women who just want to enhance the size of their breast may choose to have a procedure called breast augmentation (mammoplasty).  This procedure involves the surgical implantation of devices designed to increase size and fullness of the breasts.  Many women seek not only to improve size by also symmetry and proportionality of the breasts.  Many women find that a breast augmentation can increase their self-confidence and self-esteem.

There are currently two FDA approved breast implants to choose from saline (salt water filled) and silicone. 

The implant or breast enlargement may be placed under or over the pectoral muscle. If you are having a saline implant inserted the implant will be filled to the desired size after insertion of the empty implant. 

The most common plastic surgery breast procedures include breast enlargement or augmentation , primarily using saline implants, breast lift (mastopexy), and a breast reduction (macromastia). Dr. Mentz is competent in almost every technique and can provide the highest quality medical care for you. He will listen to your concerns and provide helpful answers that are in your best interest. His caring staff will provide you with special attention and concern before and after your breast enhancement surgery.

Breast implants were invented in Houston, Texas in 1962 and Dr. Mentz's training with the inventors in 1989, 90 and 91 provided excellent insight in management of difficult situations requiring innovation and talent. Moreover, Dr. Mentz's expertise and extensive experience in breast surgery can help you achieve a natural and youthful result.

Training in Houston with the inventor of the breast implant and his continuing efforts in the study of breast enlagement and augmentation techniques have given Dr. Mentz special credentials in the area of breast enlargement and rejuvenation. Through detailed discussions and careful measurements Dr. Mentz will work with you to create a plan to fit your needs and goals.

 

Choosing the Right Procedure for Breast Enhancement

Age, weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy and breast feeding are just some of the many causes of sagging breasts.  For women, sagging breasts are a source of embarrassment and one of the many signs that we do not have the body we had in our twenties.  Breasts in particular are a symbol of our femininity and sex appeal, so it’s no wonder that breast augmentation procedures have been the most popular cosmetic procedures for more than a decade.

The most common concern is sagging or droopy breasts.  There are two types of sagging breasts.  If the patient has lost a lot of breast volume, they probably look like deflated balloons, i.e. excess skin with little breast tissue to fill it up.  This type of deflated breast can usually be improved with a breast implant alone.  This is an ideal solution because it leaves just a very tiny scar hidden in the underarm.

However, some patients still have good volume of breast tissue, but their breats have been pulled down pulled down by gravity. These patients are ideal candidates for a breast lift or mastopexy.  If the patient is happy with the current size, this procedure can be done without an implant. The breast lift leaves a scar extending from the bottom of the areola (nipple) to the crease below the breast.

Breast Procedures FAQ

What are the advantages of saline and silicone implants?
There are advantages and disadvantages to each and vary patient to patient. Dr. Mentz will work with you to determine which type and size implant is right for you. 

Where are the incisions made?
Dr. Mentz typically will use a 3/4 inch incision for placement of the implant so that the scar is minimized and barely detectable. These small incisions may be made in the crease under the breast or at the edge of the areola.
