Dr. Arslanian had extensive experience in Breast Surgery during his training at Emory University Plastic Surgery. He has made it a priority to stay up to date on the latest techniques and technologies in order to provide the best possible care to his patients.
Breast Augmentation is an outpatient procedure that involves placing either saline or silicone breast implants under the breast or pectoralis muscle in order to increase the size and shape of the natural breast. It is a procedure that takes about an hour and recovery is usually about a week. Results can be excellent and long term with the recent advances in implant technology.
Mastopexy is also an outpatient procedure that involves lifting and reshaping the breast. Many women will often develop “saggy” breasts and lose volume from the effects of pregnancy and breast feeding. A Mastopexy can help to lift the nipple and reshape the breast to a more youthful, and perkier appearance. This may or may not be combined with placement of breast implants depending on the desired outcome of the patient
Breast Reduction is a procedure that involves reducing and reshaping the larger breast in order to achieve a smaller, perkier breast. Patients often have been suffering from symptoms of large breasts for several years, and this procedure has been found to have the highest patient satisfaction of any plastic surgery procedure.
Fat grafting is a procedure that involves using liposuction techniques to harvest fat from areas such as the abdomen or thighs, and injecting it into and around the breast. Fat grafting can be used alone to augment the breast and increase its size, or can be combined with other breast procedures to give a more natural appearance
Breast Reconstructiion encompasses several different procedures that are used to reconstruct the breast after mastecomy or lumpectomy. The two categories of breast reconstruction are autologous, in which the pateints own tissue is used to make a new breast mound, or implant based where an implant or tissue expander is used to create a new breast for the patient. Dr.Arslanian has extensive training in breast reconstruction and can help you make the decision of what procedure will work best for you.
