In addition to breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction, the Aesthetic Center for Breast and Cosmetic Surgery offers other specialized procedures designed for cosmetic and reconstructive breast enhancement. If you have had a mastectomy as a result of breast cancer, our practice offers patients in the Greenville and Spartanburg areas breast reconstruction to restore the shape of the breasts. Our talented, supportive cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Sutton Graham is experienced in the latest techniques and achieves consistently improved results. In addition to breast reconstruction, our practice in Greenville, near Asheville, also offers breast enhancement procedures that help correct prominent and inverted nipples. In addition we help patients with various implant problems, including poorly positioned breast implants and implant leakage.
For women who have undergone surgery to remove breast cancer, the euphoric feelings of survival can be tempered by the loss of a breast. Breast reconstruction can be an important part of the emotional and physical healing process by allowing patients to once again look nice in clothing and participate in active lifestyles without feeling self-conscious.
During a consultation at our practice, your breast reconstruction options will be explained to you at length. Details of the pre-op and post-op care, risks, limitations, and typical results are discussed carefully. Dr. Graham will help patients choose the options that suit them best.
Dr. Graham will normally perform breast reconstruction in staged procedures, first focusing on creating and shaping the breast mound and then addressing nipple and areola reconstruction. Because breast reconstruction is not considered to be a solely cosmetic procedure, health insurance will usually offer partial or total reimbursement. We invite you to contact our practice today to ask any questions you may have about breast reconstruction, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sutton Graham to begin your reconstructive journey. The entire team at the Aesthetic Center for Breast and Cosmetic Surgery looks forward to helping you feel confident and feminine again.

Prominent nipples can occur normally, but often cause embarrassment. A procedure under local anesthesia can produce a subtler nipple size and projection. The opposite problem, inverted nipples, affects a number of women but can also be improved with a small office procedure. For both types of procedures, trade-offs include interference with breast-feeding and possibly sensation. Please contact our practice in Greenville if this type of breast enhancement is of interest to you.

Implants have been used successfully since the 1960’s, so there are large numbers of women who encounter the need to redo the surgery. Implants may not last forever. Maintaining a result may eventually mean replacing implants the have worn out, correcting the effects of gravity and time, or correcting reactions such as capsular contracture (more common with gel implants).
We assist women in these situations with a variety of revision procedures, including: saline implant replacement, gel implant removal, removal of gel leakage, capsulectomy, submuscular repositioning, and/or mastopexy. For a complete assessment, Dr. Graham requests that you contact your previous surgeon or hospital for copies of your implant information and operative notes. We’ll discuss alternatives at your consultation.
The procedure will be done in one to three hours under general anesthesia. Medications will treat post-op pain. You’ll resume light activities within days and exercise in three weeks. Risk are listed and discussed prior to surgery. Results are long lasting, but breasts may change with age and gravity. Contact our practice in Greenville to discuss revisions of past breast enhancement procedures.
Some patients consult our practice to correct problems with the position of their implants. These may have been placed well, but shifted over time, or the patients may have been dissatisfied with the initial or subsequent result from their original surgeon. Dr. Graham usually encourages patients to work with their surgeon, but realizes he or she may be unavailable, retired, or relocated. The variety of techniques includes revising the current capsule space or repositioning the space and replacing the implants. Most problems can be improved, but surgery cannot guarantee a particular result or exact match.
Expectations and risks will be discussed preoperatively. Patients receive written care and follow-up instructions. The recovery period is similar to other breast procedures, including the return to light activities within a few days after surgery and the return to more strenuous activities within a few weeks.
