Breast Augmentation

In your circle of friends, coworkers, or family members, you likely use the term “boob job” to describe a breast augmentation. But do you know what a breast augmentation is? By placing silicone, saline, or gummy bear implants on top of or underneath your breast muscles, a breast augmentation can give you the size of breasts you have always wanted. Although used for cosmetic purposes, a breast augmentation can also be used for restorative purposes like a mastectomy. No matter what your purpose is for getting a breast augmentation, Dr. York Yates will ensure that you are happy with the process from the beginning until the end.

Breast Lift

Whether due to age or breastfeeding, having saggy breasts is not something you want to add to your bucket list. Luckily, that’s where a breast lift comes into play. Often done in conjunction with a breast augmentation, a breast lift is a surgical procedure that is used to lift the breast tissue and skin. During this surgical process, some of the excess breast tissue may be removed, and the breasts will be lifted so that they are perkier— this is usually the part of the surgical process where patients like to get implants.

Whether your self-esteem is suffering or you just want to feel sexier, a breast augmentation and a breast lift from Dr. York Yates may be the perfect option for you. To learn more about both of these procedures or to schedule a consultation, contact Dr. York Yates’ office today!
