Reasons to Consider Atlanta Breast Augmentation

Breast enlargement (augmentation) is popular among women — for a good reason. Breast enlargement is a relatively simple procedure, adds volume to the breasts and improves the breast shape and profile.

Many women feel that larger breasts help balance their bodies’ overall appearance, giving them better symmetry and a more natural, feminine look. An attractive figure contributes to a woman’s self-image and confidence. Women with limited breast development, tissue loss, or uneven development, may find it difficult to wear some clothing or to even feel good about themselves.
If you are unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, breast augmentation can give you larger, fuller, sexier breasts. The biggest regret most women have after breast implant surgery is that they did not get breast implants sooner. For many women, breast surgery has a huge, sometimes unexpected, positive impact — transforming the way they view themselves — with more confidence and poise, changing the way others see them too.

Our breast implant patients find that they look better in and out of clothes, and that shopping for new clothes and bras can be fun, exciting, and satisfying, further assuring their confidence and self-esteem.

Women have breast augmentation for many reasons, including:

• Breasts have lost volume and begun to sag over time
• Breasts have always been small

• Breasts look too small in proportion to the rest of the body
• Breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or breastfeeding

• Weight gain in other parts of the body, giving an uneven appearance

• Asymmetrical breasts (one breast is larger than the other)

• Clothes do not fit properly

• Breasts do not fill out bras

• Lack of cleavage

• Desire to feel sexier and more feminine

• Improved self-esteem and confidence

You can take control of your appearance and improve your confidence by choosing double board certified Dr. Mark Mitchell Jones to use his expertise and skills to accomplish your Atlanta breast augmentation surgery.

Dr. Jones’s Innovation—Invisible Scar Technique (IST)

Dr. Jones’s advantage is his unparalleled training in world-leading research institutions and his more than 30,000 hours of hands-on surgical experience. From his twenty years of practicing Atlanta breast augmentation surgery and his extensive training, Dr. Jones has learned how to create the most natural-looking and feeling breast.

The Invisible Scar Technique breast augmentation, or IST, wasn’t the objective but instead a natural byproduct of his synthesis of techniques based on what works and what does not.

“In 85% of my cases at six months after surgery, I would not be able to detect the scar on the breast even though I knew exactly where it was,” claims Dr. Jones. He explains further: “My technique encompasses a unique, 100% muscle coverage while supporting the breast implant such that it rarely—if ever—droops or falls. This minimizes the need for touch-ups or revisions. Moreover, my technique is ‘bloodless,’ relegating contracture or hematoma complications largely to the past. Finally, unlike many other breast augmentation procedures, my approach—in most cases—does not impact any future pregnancy or breast feeding.”

Dr. Jones’ experience, training, and ability to innovate have allowed him to implement a masterful way to accomplish breast augmentation.

Common Breast Augmentation Approaches

To understand how Dr. Jones is able to accomplish such an exceptional outcome, it helps to understand some key choices a surgeon makes as he or she performs breast augmentation surgery. Where and how the surgeon places the breast implant determines how it will look and feel, and for how long it will look good.

The implant can be placed either on top of the breast muscle and below the skin and breast tissue (Figure 1), or behind the muscle in a pocket against the rib cage (Figure 2a for side view and 2b for frontal view).

Placing the implant on top of the muscle (Figure 1) will give a full, round look with more cleavage. However, the implant will likely sag over time as the skin stretches with no muscle support (recall that the implant is ‘on its own,’ the muscle resting behind it). Most silicone implants are placed in the pocket in front of the breast muscle.

Alternatively, when the implant is placed behind the muscle (Figures 2a and 2b), it gives the breast a more natural feel and less upper bulging. Why? Because the muscle around the implant now supports it, leaving the breast tissue untouched. This approach maintains a more natural look and feel for the patient, yet with a larger breast size. Saline implants are typically placed behind the breast muscle.

The next question beyond where to place the implant is how to get it there; in other words, where to make the incision and what pathway to use to get the implant in its place. In the first case, when the implant is placed on top of the muscle, the s
