The Philosophy of Cosmetic Breast Surgery
Cosmetic breast surgery has blossomed over the past few years. Technological advances in breast implants, use of advanced techniques and improvements in safety have made breast surgery ever increasingly appealing for women who desire to change the appearance of their breasts. Dr. Prince strives to remain on the cutting edge of cosmetic breast surgery, offering natural appearing results and exceptional safety to patients in and around the Little Rock area.
When selecting a plastic surgeon to perform any type of breast surgery, it is imperative to understand your surgeon’s philosophy of breast surgery. Dr. Melanie Prince, has a unique surgical philosophy: She strives to meld the fields of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery to provide a tailored approach to each surgery. In her mind, creating the most beautiful breast is not just about having a “boob job”. Her philosophy lies in understanding the natural anatomy of the breast….from skin, tissue and muscle. Understanding how advanced techniques and technology are adapted to each woman’s breast is his gold standard. For example, procedures originally performed for breast reconstruction (ie. Alloderm, Strattice, Fat Transfer) can now be safely adapted to correct long standing deformities that may have been present after cosmetic breast augmentation. Conversely, implants advancements (i.e. shaped or “gummy-bear” implants) originally developed for cosmetic patients can be used to achieve excellent results in patients suffering from breast cancer. To Dr. Prince, mastery of creating a beautiful breast lies in a continuum: from reconstruction with minimal scarring after mastectomy to creating a more youthful or augmented breast after pregnancy.
Dr. Prince offers his patients an extensive variety of cosmetic breast procedures, including, but not limited to:
- Breast Augmentation
