Breast Enhancement Q & A

What is breast enhancement?

Breast enhancement is plastic surgery to give your breasts a more aesthetically pleasing, natural-looking appearance. These surgeries can add volume to your breasts to provide you with a more womanly silhouette and help to correct the effects of:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight gain/loss
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity

Breast enhancement at Peak Plastic Surgery Center comes with a variety of customized options, such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, breast contouring — or a combination of these surgeries. 

What are my options for breast enhancement?

Dr. Barker at Peak Plastic Surgery Center provides the most popular breast-enhancement surgeries, with a broad selection of implants, styles, and placement options to create a natural look. He performs:

Breast lift surgery

A breast lift raises your breasts by surgically removing sagging skin and tightening your surrounding tissues. The procedure, also known as mastopexy, reshapes your breasts to create a firmer, more youthful breast contour.

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery with saline or silicone implants increases the volume of your breasts by one or more cup sizes. Dr. Barker may suggest this surgery in conjunction with a breast lift for breast contouring.

Fat transfer augmentation

This procedure subtly and naturally increases volume in your breasts up to one full cup size. Dr. Barker uses purified fat drawn from your own body, which he carefully re-injects into your breasts in layers to sculpt your breasts into the desired shape.

What are my breast implant options?

Your options at Peak Plastic Surgery Center include breast implants made from saline or silicone gel. 

Saline implants are made of sterile salt water. These implants are FDA-approved for ages 18 and older. Another form of saline implant, called a structured implant, feels softer than traditional saline implants and more like a natural breast. 

In general, silicone implants feel a bit more like natural breast tissue than traditional saline implants. However, silicone gel implants carry a small risk of the gel leaking into your surrounding tissue if the implant breaks. 

A newer type of implant, gummy bear breast implants, are designed to correct this issue with silicone implants. Gummy bear implants are a type of silicone implants that maintain their shape even if the implant shell ruptures.

Dr. Barker walks you through the pros and cons of these options and customizes breast enhancement to your desired goals.
