Breast Procedures Atlanta

Year after year, breast surgery procedures rank among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries. In 2011, breast augmentation and breast lift were in the top five surgical procedures performed for women, and breast reduction was in the top five surgical procedures performed on men.

Dr. Marisa Lawrence offers a range of breast surgery procedures at her Atlanta cosmetic surgery practice; the procedures are designed to improve the shape, size and position of the breasts. Small breasts may be enhanced with implants, saggy breasts can be lifted and large breasts can be reduced in size. Dr. Lawrence also works closely with breast cancer patients who have or are planning to have a mastectomy and would like to explore their reconstruction options.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of saline or silicone-filled implants to increase the size of small breasts. Saline and silicone implants are both approved by the FDA for safety and come in a variety of sizes. They are placed either above or beneath the chest muscle through incisions under the breast, under the arm or around the nipple. Learn more about breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery elevates saggy or droopy breasts into a higher, more youthful position on the chest. Breast lift is popular amongst women who have noticed sagging breasts (a condition known as ptosis) due to the effects of pregnancy, aging or significant weight loss. Read more about breast lift surgery.

Breast Reduction

Some women face physical and psychological challenges because of oversized breasts. These challenges include back and neck pain, limitation in clothing choices and restriction of physical activities. Dr. Lawrence surgically reduces large, heavy breasts by removing excess tissue, fat and skin. Learn more about breast reduction surgery.

Breast Asymmetry Correction

Asymmetrical breasts can be corrected through several options:

  • augmenting the smaller breast with an implant
  • reducing the larger breast
  • lifting the breast that sags lower

Dr. Lawrence can review your anatomy and help you decide which approach is best for your body. Read more about the correction of breast asymmetry.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is primarily performed on women who have had one or both breasts removed due to cancer. It may also be appropriate for women who have suffered trauma to the breast or have a deformity. Dr. Lawrence offers several types of reconstructive options, including flap procedures (using skin and tissue from another area of the patient’s body to recreate the breast), tissue expanders and implant placement. Learn more about breast reconstruction.

Treatment of Gynecomastia

Dr. Lawrence works with men who suffer from gynecomastia, a condition involving overdeveloped breast tissue and enlarged breasts. She can reduce them with liposuction and/or the excision of excess glandular tissue. Read more about gynecomastia surgery.
