Replacing Breast Implants: A Few Things to Think About

Replacing your breast implants someday may not be the first thing on your mind when you see us for breast augmentation here in Louisville, Kentucky, but it does give many prospective patients some pause. It’s certainly a valid discussion topic: While breast implants are designed to last longer than ever, they are still not meant to last a lifetime. Let’s take a closer look at why patients do eventually decide to exchange them. Aging You might have heard of a 10- or 15-year “expiration date” for breast implants. This used to be previously a pretty accurate rule of thumb, but … Continue reading

NeoGraft® Hair Restoration: Just As Effective For Women

If you’ve done any research on hair restoration treatments, you’ve probably noticed that there’s a strong focus on men. This is understandable: When we think of balding and hair loss, men typically come to mind first. But hair loss affects women, too.

Why I Perform Breast Augmentation & Lift Together

Often, when a patient comes in seeking a breast augmentation at our Louisville, Kentucky practice, the discussion needs to shift a bit after I perform her initial examination. This is because, for many women, an augmentation on its own won’t produce the desired result, and I recommend adding a breast lift (mastopexy) for the best outcome. Combining Breast Augmentation & Breast Lift Some women have stretched breast skin; others have nipples that point downward or breasts that have begun to sag and droop. This can happen after having children, losing or gaining a significant amount of weight, entering menopause, or … Continue reading

Saline & Silicone: What’s the Difference, Anyway?

It’s one of the biggest decisions many breast augmentation patients at our Louisville, Kentucky practice face: “Should I choose saline or silicone?” To help frame the decision and get to the answer that’s right for you, I always try to offer the same guidelines. Both Are Very Safe Patients often come in with a preconceived notion that silicone implants are somehow a “riskier” move in terms of their future health. That’s simply not true. My best guess is that this mindset comes from controversies over breast implants in the late 1970s and 1980s, but a lot has changed since then. … Continue reading
