Understanding Augmentation, Lift, Reduction, and Revision Procedures

1- Breast Augmentation


Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance breast size and improve overall symmetry. This is typically achieved by inserting breast implants, either saline or silicone, beneath the chest muscles or breast tissue.


When thinking about breast enhancement, a crucial choice is picking the right kind of breast implants. You mainly have two options: saline and silicone implants, each with their own unique features. Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater inside a silicone shell. They’re flexible in terms of size adjustments and are considered safe because the body can harmlessly absorb the saline if there’s a leak. On the other hand, silicone implants are filled with cohesive silicone gel, giving a more natural appearance and texture that closely mimics real breast tissue.


The choice between saline and silicone implants often hinges on personal preferences, body type, and desired aesthetic outcomes. Understanding the nuances of each type, including factors such as rupture risks and maintenance, is crucial in navigating the breast augmentation journey. Consultation with esteemed plastic surgeons like Dr. Jeffrey Cone and Dr. Claude-Jean Langevin can facilitate informed decisions tailored to your unique needs and aspirations.


Common Breast Augmentation Surgery Myths Dispelled

  • Myth: Breast implants will look fake.

Reality: Modern breast augmentation techniques and a wide range of implant options allow for natural-looking results. Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin can tailor procedures to match your body shape and desired outcome, resulting in aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking breasts.

  • Myth: Breast implants will last forever.

Reality: Breast implants aren’t forever and might need replacing eventually. While modern implants are durable, they are subject to wear and tear, and factors such as aging, weight fluctuations, and changes in breast tissue can impact their longevity. Routine follow-ups with Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin can help detect any issues early and ensure optimal results.

  • Myth: Breast implants will interfere with breastfeeding.

Reality: While breast implants may affect milk production and sensation in the nipples, many women with implants successfully breastfeed. Placement of the implants and surgical technique can influence breastfeeding outcomes. Consulting with Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin and discussing your breastfeeding goals before surgery can help minimize any potential impact on breastfeeding.

  • Myth: Breast augmentation is only for young women.

Reality: Breast surgery is not limited by age. Women of various ages seek breast augmentation for different reasons, including restoring lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss, improving breast symmetry, or enhancing overall body proportions. Age alone does not determine candidacy for breast surgery; suitability is based on individual health and cosmetic goals.

2- Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Opting for a breast lift often stems from life’s natural transitions, whether it be aging, motherhood, weight fluctuations, or genetics. It represents a solution for individuals seeking to elevate and rejuvenate their breasts, restoring their natural, youthful contour.

Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin employ techniques akin to artistic craftsmanship, ensuring a natural and enhanced appearance. From discreet anchor incisions to refined lollipop lifts and subtle donut approaches, each method is meticulously chosen to complement and accentuate your individual beauty and desired look.


Common Breast Lift Myths Dispelled

  • Myth: Breast lift surgery is only for older women.

Reality: Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is not age-specific. Women of various ages may consider it to address sagging breasts caused by factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, or genetics.

  • Myth: Breast lift surgery will significantly reduce breast size.

Reality: While breast lift surgery may involve some tissue removal to achieve a firmer and more lifted appearance, it primarily reshapes and repositions existing breast tissue. The goal is to enhance breast contour and restore youthful proportions rather than reduce size.

  • Myth: Breast lift surgery always leaves noticeable scars.

Reality: While breast lift surgery does involve incisions, skilled surgeons like Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin use advanced techniques to minimize scarring. Incisions are strategically placed and often fade over time, becoming less noticeable with proper care.

  • Myth: Breast lift surgery guarantees permanent results.

Reality: While breast lift surgery can provide long-lasting results, factors such as aging, gravity, weight fluctuations, and lifestyle choices can affect breast appearance over time. Maintaining a stable weight and wearing supportive bras can help prolong the results of breast lift surgery.

  • Myth: Breast lift surgery is only for women with severe sagging.

Reality: Breast lift surgery can benefit women with varying degrees of breast ptosis (sagging). Whether you have mild, moderate, or severe sagging, Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin can customize the procedure to address your specific concerns and achieve natural-looking results. 

3- Breast Augmentation and Lift Combined (Augmentation Mastopexy)

Augmentation Mastopexy entails a combined procedure integrating breast augmentation with a breast lift. This proves beneficial for those desiring both increased breast volume and correction for sagging or drooping breasts. The surgery addresses both concerns concurrently, delivering enhanced volume and improved breast position.

4- Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, aims to reduce the size and weight of overly large breasts. This entails removing surplus breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more proportionate breast size. Breast reduction can alleviate physical discomfort such as back and neck pain, while enhancing overall body proportions.

Visualize breast reduction surgery as a thoughtful and delicate adjustment. Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin employ techniques prioritizing your comfort and well-being. Whether it entails anchor incisions, vertical incisions, or horizontal incisions, each method is selected with precision to achieve the desired reduction while maintaining a natural and harmonious breast shape.


Common Breast Reduction Surgery Myths Dispelled

  • Myth: Breast reduction surgery is purely cosmetic.

Reality: While breast reduction surgery can improve the appearance of disproportionately large breasts, it is often performed to alleviate physical discomfort such as back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as skin irritation and posture issues caused by the weight of excessively large breasts.

  • Myth: Breast reduction surgery always results in drastic scarring.

Reality: Skilled surgeons like Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin utilize advanced techniques to minimize scarring. Incisions are strategically placed and often fade over time, becoming less noticeable with proper care and scar management.

  • Myth: Breast reduction surgery will affect breastfeeding ability.

Reality: While breast reduction surgery may impact breastfeeding ability, many women can still breastfeed successfully after the procedure. It’s essential to discuss your breastfeeding goals with your surgeon before the surgery, as they can tailor the procedure to minimize potential interference with lactation.

  • Myth: Breast reduction surgery is only for women with extremely large breasts.

Reality: Breast reduction surgery is suitable for women with a range of breast sizes who experience physical discomfort or dissatisfaction with the appearance of their breasts. The procedure can address issues such as asymmetry, sagging, and disproportionate breast size.


5- Breast Revision

  • Implant Removal/Exchange: Sometimes, there are reasons to consider removing or exchanging breast implants. This could be due to dissatisfaction with the current implants, changes in lifestyle, or the need for replacement due to aging or complications. The process involves removing one or both implants and, if desired, replacing them with new ones or opting for a different type of implant.


  • Exchange for Different Size or Type: If you decide to exchange implants for a different size or type, it requires careful planning. This typically involves making a small incision to ensure a smooth transition between the old and new implants. The goal is to achieve balanced and harmonious results that align with your aesthetic preferences and comfort level.


  • Addressing Specific Concerns: In cases where specific concerns like implant malposition or asymmetry arise, Dr. Cone and Dr. Langevin customize their techniques accordingly. This may involve adjusting the implant pocket or reshaping breast tissue to achieve symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing outcomes. Their expertise ensures that individual concerns are addressed effectively, resulting in enhanced confidence and satisfaction with the overall appearance. 


Common Breast Revision Surgery Myths Dispelled

  • Myth: Breast revision surgery is only for correcting mistakes made during the initial breast augmentation.

Reality: While breast revision surgery can indeed address issues stemming from previous breast surgeries, it’s not limited to correcting mistakes. It can also address changes in breast shape or size due to factors like weight fluctuations, pregnancy, or aging.

  • Myth: Breast revision surgery always involves replacing implants with larger ones.

Reality: Breast revision surgery allows for various options, including downsizing or even removing implants altogether. It’s tailored to the patient’s goals, whether that involves adjusting size and shape, or addressing issues like implant malposition or capsular contracture.

  • Myth: Breast revision surgery is riskier than initial breast augmentation.

Reality: While any surgical procedure carries risks, breast revision surgery is generally considered safe when performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon like Dr. Cone or Dr. Langevin. Risks can be minimized through thorough pre-op evaluation and proper surgical planning.

  • Myth: Breast revision surgery always leads to visible scarring.

Reality: Like any surgery, breast revision may result in some scarring, but our skilled surgeons use techniques to minimize visible scarring. Incisions are often made in inconspicuous areas and can fade significantly over time.
