Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is a popular cosmetic procedure and for good reason. Patients who feel self-conscious due to small breasts, lack of firmness, or a mismatch in overall size of breasts feel a boost of confidence after their aesthetic surgery. Dr. Landis understands that the shape of a woman’s body is intimately connected to her feelings of femininity and attractiveness.

If you have always wanted implants to meet your personal aesthetic goals, visit our practice for breast augmentation in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. At Dr. Landis’ office, our experience and compassion set us apart, making our surgeon and team patients’ first choice for cosmetic procedures.

Why Consider Breast Augmentation Surgery?

There is any number of reasons women pursue implant surgery and many are highly personal. Some may want to feel more confident in their skin while others want to fill out specific clothing. Breast augmentation surgery adds volume and improves breast shape and profile. This can be especially beneficial for women who have noticed a change in their appearance after breastfeeding or those who developed a breast size that makes them feel self-conscious.

Breast augmentation balances overall physical appearance and creates contours that help patients meet their aesthetic goals. Minneapolis implant surgeon Dr. George Landis offers augmentation for many different reasons, including:

  • If breasts have lost volume and begun to sag over time (this correction may also include a breast lift)
  • If breasts have always been small
  • If breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • If one breast is larger than the other

Dr. Landis provides a level of personalized attention and communication that make his practice unique in the area. During your consultation for breast augmentation, Dr. Landis reviews your aesthetic concerns and motivation for pursuing implants. With this information, he can recommend a procedure and treatment method that meets your goals and exceeds your expectations. Our goal is to act as your guide in choosing the best treatment plan. You can feel confident knowing that our team is here to help you look and feel your best.

The Benefits of Breast Implants

There are many emotional and physical benefits associated with achieving your ideal body image. If the size and shape of your breasts have always made you feel less confident than you’d like, you can enjoy the freedom of never having to second guess your appearance in a low-cut shirt, form-fitting dress, or bikini. You can also save yourself time getting ready for an important event; no more carefully engineering clothing and undergarments to create the appearance of breast volume or cleavage. You can also ditch your bulky padded bras.

Dr. Landis’ breast augmentation patients benefit from a newfound confidence in their figures and can carry asense of wellbeing into all aspects of their lives.

You will get to choose what size and profile match your expectations, including shaped implants or the traditional round variety.

Breast Augmentation in Minneapolis-St. Paul with Dr. Landis

On the day of treatment, small incisions are made to place your implant. These can be hidden under the breast crease, around the areolar border, or in the axilla. Saline implants can be inserted and filled after placement, which creates a less noticeable incision. Dr. Landis will determine where he can best camouflage your incision, accurately place the implants, and create the ideal aesthetic. Breast implants can also be set above or below the muscles of the chest wall.

Dr. Landis’ expertise allows him to offer treatment methods that maximize results and support best possible healing. Our Minneapolis-St. Paul breast surgeon specializes in the advanced dual-plane technique, which helps patients enjoy natural results and beautifully augmented figures. This approach is typically recommended for patients with low body fat to create the appearance of augmented breasts, without an unnatural aesthetic. Even if you have tuberous or elongated breasts, Dr. Landis can use this method to create the rounded breasts you’ve always wanted.
