Introduction to Breast Enhancement Procedures
We offer several types of breast enhancement procedures at Garza Plastic Surgery in Belle Meade, TN. Everyone’s body is different and our patients have different goals.
Plastic surgery procedures commonly improve the size and shape of the breasts. Additionally, these procedures can be used to rebuild the breasts after breast cancer surgery.
These procedures usually involve breast implants or fat transfer to improve the size and shape of the breasts. At Garza Plastic Surgery, we use both silicone and gel-based “gummy bear” implants to augment the breasts.
We also offer DIEP flap surgery where we take excess fat tissue from your tummy to improve the shape and feel of your breasts. This surgery also gives you the benefits of a tummy tuck at the same time. Learn more about this procedure by clicking the link above.
Like other breast augmentation procedures, this treatment helps sculpt the size, shape, and position of the breasts. During the procedure, we can also change the position of the areolas and improve the texture of the skin.
Because breast cancer surgery removes a significant amount of tissue, these procedures use a few different methods to accomplish this goal. We use both implants and fat transfer to rebuild the lost tissue.
We offer two types of breast implants, one is a silicone gel implant typically called a “gummy bear implant.” The other type of implant we use is filled with a sterile saline solution. You can read more about these implants in our blog article, “Are Breast Implants Safe After A Mastectomy?”
Aside from implants, we offer a procedure called DIEP Flap surgery. Essentially, this procedure allows us to remove unwanted fat cells from your tummy and use it to rebuild the breast with your body’s own tissues. As an added benefit, you also get the benefits of a free tummy tuck!

One of the effects of pregnancy that women notice is their breast swelling. Usually, this goes away over time, but it can remain a concern. While the main goal of breast reduction surgery is aesthetic in nature, it can also provide relief for neck and back pain, and make daily activities more comfortable.
Reduction surgery is one of the treatments available in our Mommy Makeover treatment packages.
