Breast Augmentation


Women visit Dr. Jared Nimtz for breast augmentation in Lexington and London, KY, to enhance the size and shape of their breasts. He is known for providing results that look naturally beautiful using the latest breast implants, advanced surgical techniques, and an aesthetic eye for beauty and proportion.

Who Is a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Women desire breast augmentation for a variety of personal reasons, which include:

  • Increasing the size of naturally small breasts
  • Replacing breast volume lost to weight changes, pregnancy, or the aging process
  • Improving breast symmetry

Women who have multiple areas on the body they’d like to improve often choose mommy makeover surgery. Dr. Nimtz performs a personalized combination of procedures that often includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast enhancement procedure such as breast augmentation.

Choices for a Personalized Procedure

When considering a breast augmentation procedure, several factors are important to consider for natural-looking results:

  • Size of the implant
  • Type of implant
  • Projection/style of the implant
  • Position of the implant
  • Position of the incision

Dr. Nimtz outlines several important factors regarding breast augmentation, including a day-by-day photo gallery of a patient’s results following her breast augmentation procedure in his blog: Beauty, Art, and Medicine.

Implant Size

Women often come into our office with a particular cup size in mind; however, breast implants are measured in volume (cubic centimeters or cc), not in cup size. A standard rule of thumb we tell patients is that every cup size increase is approximately 150 to 200 cc. That means patients considering going from an A cup to a C cup, might desire a 300 to 400 cc implant, depending on their desired result as well as their own anatomy.

Type of Implant

Saline versus silicone has been the standard option in breast implants for years, and this is still an important consideration, but with the newer types of implants on the market, such as textured and tear-drop shaped implants, patients may find they want to do a look and feel test to determine which implant they might like best. We stock a range of implants for patients to try out different sizes, types, and projections of implants.

Projection/Style of Implant

Many before-and-after photos detail the size of the implant but fail to mention the projection or style of the implant. In addition to volume, implants have various projections. We encourage patients to come and do a “look and feel test” with implants. We carry all types of implants from high profile to moderate profile.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

In addition to increasing breast size with implants, patients who desire a small increase in breast size might consider fat transfer. With this procedure, the patient undergoes liposuction to remove fat, which is then purified and grafted into the breast. The patient can see a subtle, more natural effect with fat transfer and receives the benefit of enhancing contours with liposuction as well.

Breast Augmentation With Lift

Breast augmentation alone will not correct breasts that sag or droop due to a significant loss of breast volume. Dr. Nimtz often combines breast lift, technically called mastopexy, with breast implants to correct significantly drooping breasts. He assesses the position of the breasts on the chest wall to determine whether patients need a breast lift.
