What is Breast Augmentation with Lift?
Dr. Balinger recommends breast augmentation with lift for women who have sagging breasts and want to add fullness. Breast augmentation with lift is the most common type of boob job that is recommended for women after they breastfeed, as well as older patients.
What is Breast Revision?
Breast revision is a surgery that is recommended for women who are dissatisfied with the results of the original boob job. Some of the reasons that women choose breast revision surgery are:

How is Breast Augmentation Performed?
Dr. Balinger is one of the few plastic surgeons in the country to offer women transauxillary breast augmentation. The traditional techniques for a boob job involve incisions in the visible areas of the breasts, such as around the areola and from the area downward to the breast crease. A transauxillary boob job requires small incisions that are made in the natural folds of the armpit, so the scars are well hidden and barely noticeable.
What is Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation?
The transauxillary technique requires less tissue trauma compared to other techniques, so the downtime is minimized. Dr. Balinger explains that to expect during your recovery at the time of the consultation, as well as after the procedure.
How Long Will Breast Augmentation Results Last?
Breast augmentation will not prevent your breasts from sagging due to aging or pregnancy. Aside from these considerations, the results of your boob job may last up to ten years before the implants may need to be replaced.
What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is a procedure that removes the implant from the breast area. The implant may be replaced, or the patient may wish to not have implants.
