Plastic Surgery For Breast Augmentation


Cosmetic breast surgery is a complex and continuously evolving art form.  The size, shape, and position of the female breast could once only be improved in the vision of artist and sculptor, but now, in the hands of a creative, professional plastic surgeon, the breast itself can become the work of art.  Breast augmentation and other cosmetic breast surgeries combine leading advances in medical science with the doctor’s essential artistic vision, making good plastic surgeons the premier artists of our day.   Women who have always wanted to increase their breast size, lift their breasts, or otherwise improve the appearance of their breasts can now safely do so with results that women of the past could only imagine.  Satisfaction with one’s breasts is a very personal issue—and should always remain so—but Dr. Carter has put the artistic possibilities into women’s hands through breast augmentation and other cosmetic surgeries.

Dr. Carter has been doing breast augmentation since 1986 and is a recognized authority on breast surgery in the Tampa, Florida, area.  For over twenty years, his artistic vision and his professionalism have met and surpassed the expectations of his patients, treating this delicate and sensitive procedure with the honesty and expertise it requires.  With his patients, he not only addresses their desired breast appearance but also guides them through their concerns about safety, recovery, and future breast exams and mammographies.

Knowing that different patients have different needs, Dr. Carter offers both silicone and saline breast implants of various shapes, sizes, and textures.  In the consultation process, he works with his patients to decide on an implant and a strategy that is most appropriate for her needs, her concerns, and her specific anatomy.

Breast implants can be placed above or below the chest wall muscle.  However, Dr. Carter also practices the most recent improvement in breast augmentation surgery:  the placement of the implants in the sub-fascia level, instead of directly under the glands or under the chest muscle.  This fascia covers the pectoral muscles but lies below the mammary glands of the breasts.  Placing the breast implants under the fascia provides the implants with more stability and less unwanted visibility than direct placement in the glandular tissue, and it provides a less invasive alternative to placing the implant underneath the pectoral muscles.  Sub-fascia breast implants mean less pain and quicker recovery than sub-pectoral implants, while still allowing clear mammogram screening and still creating the same high level of aesthetic results.

If you are ready to make the choice that modern plastic surgery makes possible, schedule an appointment with Dr. Carter to discuss the breast augmentation possibilities.  He has the experience and expertise to help you create the breasts you have always wanted.  Visit his before and after photos to see some of the possibilities.

Breast Lifts and Breast Reductions

Because small breast size is not always the problem, Dr. Carter also specializes in surgeries that raise sagging breasts, restore ideal nipple placement, and reduce unwanted breast volume.  Often, in larger breasted women, a breast reduction and breast lift would be combined to create a look that is both aesthetically pleasing and more proportional to the woman’s body.

Make an appointment with Dr. Carter to discuss the changes you would like to make in your breasts, and visit our before and after photos to see if a breast lift and breast reduction would best fit your future.

Secondary Breast Surgery

Because cosmetic breast surgery has been around for quite a while, now, many women find that they need or would like a secondary surgery, whether to replace aging implants, to reposition implants for a better aesthetic result, or to do another breast surgery to deal with the changes in the breast since their last surgery.

As one of the most experienced plastic surgeons in the Tampa, Florida, area, Dr. Carter is a trusted resource in the community of plastic surgeons, and a good portion of his clinic’s work is given to these more sensitive secondary surgeries.
