Breast Procedures at Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery

Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery of Knoxville offers different types of breast procedures. These procedures are performed by plastic surgeon Dr. David Lo, who has extensive training and a passion for breast reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.

For the breast, some of the procedures we offer include:


Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction is an option for women who undergo surgery as part of their breast cancer treatment or suffer from congenital deformities of the breasts. Reconstruction aims to restore the shape, symmetry, appearance, and size to near normal.
There are different types of breast reconstruction surgery. There is an expander-implant-based reconstruction and there is a reconstruction using your own body tissues. There are also procedures to reconstruct the nipple and areola.


Breast Augmentation
Also known as the “boob job,” by the patients, breast augmentation involves using breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of the breasts. Breast augmentation can also improve your breast volume after weight loss or pregnancy and improve the shape or symmetry of the breasts.


Breast Lift
Breast lift or mastopexy is a procedure that raises the breasts by removing the excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues. These help in reshaping and supporting the new breast contour.


Breast Reduction and Gynecomastia
Disproportionally large breasts can cause physical and emotional distress to someone. In cases like this, breast reduction surgery can help. It’s a procedure that removes excess breast/glandular tissue, subcutaneous fat, and skin to reduce the breast size that’s more proportion to the body. It also helps resolve the physical and emotional discomfort associated with excessively large breasts.


Breast Implant Revision
Revisional surgery is a procedure that involves replacing the old breast implants with new ones, whether it is from breast augmentation or breast reconstruction.

Over time, breast implants can change in size and appearance. The overlying breast tissue may also change, creating a less desirable feel and look at the original result. In such cases, a breast revision surgery becomes the more suitable procedure to change or improve the appearance of the breasts while updating the implant material.


Breast Implant Removal
Although breast implants can last long, they are not lifelong devices and so, they have to be replaced or removed in 10 to 15 years.

The goal of breast implant surgery is to remove the breast implants from either breast reconstruction or breast augmentation. During these procedures, the surgeon may also remove silicone material from implant leaks and the breast capsule, which is the scar tissue that forms after the placement of a breast implant.
