Cosmetic Breast Surgery

Salt Lake City Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation or breast enlargement is a highly popular cosmetic surgery procedure. It is used to remedy breast underdevelopment; breast volume changes related to breastfeeding, pregnancy, or weight loss; or breast asymmetry. Dr. Reuben offers breast augmentation to provide Salt Lake City women with a more full or symmetric shape using the most advanced techniques available. Prior to the procedure, you will have a thorough consultation to review your options and tailor the breast augmentation procedure to your own needs.

We offer both saline and silicone breast implants. While both implant types have silicone shells, saline implants are filled with salt water, while silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. Both types of implants have benefits and drawbacks, which Dr. Reuben will discuss with you during consultation.

Patients undergoing breast augmentation will also have different options for incision location. Incisions are most commonly located in the fold just beneath the breast. Alternatively, a peri-areolar incision is placed around the border of the areola, the dark tissue around the nipple. A third incision choice, the trans-axillary incision, is placed in the armpit. The pros and cons of each type of incision will be discussed during your consultation.

Secondary Breast Augmentation

Dr. Reuben is also an excellent choice for patients needing secondary breast augmentations or correction of breast augmentations that have proven defective or inadequate.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

As they grow older, most women experience some degree of breast sagging. It occurs due to the natural aging process and can be made worse by significant weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Having lowered, drooping breasts makes many women feel unattractive and self-conscious. Dr. Reuben offers breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, and personalizes the surgery for each woman's own situation and desires. Breast lift surgery not only raises and tightens the breasts, but it also improves the position and appearance of the nipple and areola.

A breast lift improves breast shape and position, but it does not restore lost volume. For this reason, Dr. Reuben offers breast lifts performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.

Breast Reduction

Dr. Reuben offers breast reduction for Salt Lake City women who feel self-conscious about having very large breasts or who need breast reduction to relieve pain in their back, neck, and shoulders. Breast reduction is a good option for women whose breasts consistently cause them pain, produce skin irritations, or put them at risk of developing skeletal deformities.

Breast reduction surgery can be performed on just one breast when it is noticeably larger than the other. Dr. Reuben only performs breast reduction on women whose breasts are fully developed.

In circumstances where the size of a woman's breasts cause significant pain or affect her health, breast reduction surgery might be covered by insurance.
