Nashville Breast Surgery Procedures
Augmentations, Lifts, Revisions, and More in Nashville
Plastic surgeons Dr. Patrick Maxwell and Dr. Jacob Unger are known for—and committed to—providing world-class care in breast aesthetics. When it comes to breast surgery at the Nashville-based Maxwell Aesthetics, they perform procedures ranging from primary breast augmentation, lifts, and reductions to breast reconstruction for childbirth-associated deformities or mastectomies from cancer treatment. Fellow surgeons and past patients highly respect their work and refer women to the practice for secondary (revisional) breast enhancement to correct problems or disappointments due to previous breast surgery procedures performed elsewhere.
The breast surgery patients choosing Maxwell Aesthetics cite a wide variety of reasons for undergoing their procedures, but some of the most common goals include achieving a more flattering contour; reversing the negative effects of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging on breast shape; correcting hereditary traits that impact breast size or position; revising the disappointing effects of another surgeon’s procedure or procedures; and enhancing self-esteem and confidence.
Dr. Maxwell and Dr. Unger offer several breast surgery options, including:
Also known as augmentation mammoplasty, breast augmentation creates a fuller and better proportioned breast shape using breast implants. Post-pregnancy and post-weight-loss patients will often combine this procedure with another breast surgery to maximize their results, but it can be performed on its own. A range of implants is available, so the augmentation will be customized to the patient—not just for size, but for shape, the location of the incisions, the positioning of the implants in the breast pocket, and more.
Also known as mastopexy, breast lift removes excess skin and tissue to create a higher, firmer breast contour. Women wanting to restore their shape after pregnancy or weight loss often combine a lift with reduction or augmentation, though—like the other breast surgery options here—it can be done as a solo procedure. Remember that a lift does not add volume; it addresses sagging and drooping to create a perkier looking breast. This breast surgery may also involve repositioning the nipples.
Revisional Breast Surgery
Dr. Maxwell and Dr. Unger draw patients to Nashville from all over the United States and around the world for revisional breast enhancement surgery to correct disappointing results or address particularly challenging cases. No woman has to live with a dissatisfying look.
Also known as reduction mammoplasty, a breast reduction removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a more proportionate breast size and alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. Not only can big breasts exert a constant pull on the upper half of the body, they can strain against bras and other articles of clothing, as well as cause straps to press into the skin.
As pioneers in the field of breast restoration, Dr. Maxwell and Dr. Unger perform breast reconstruction procedures with an aim to restore breasts to their typical shape, appearance, and size and reverse the effects of mastectomy, trauma, or congenital breast deformities. This breast surgery may involve augmentation and other techniques designed to create a natural look of proportion and symmetry.
