Breast Augmentation Procedure

Breast augmentation in Reno is usually performed under general anesthesia. Implants may be placed under or over the pectoralis major muscle. The long term benefits of under the muscle placement, such as decreased capsular contracture, less interference with mammography, smoother transition from breast to chest and fewer issues with rippling make it my primary choice for implant placement. Insertion is done through an armpit, areola, or under the breast incision. The armpit incision is my preferred insertion route with nearly imperceptible scars, but I have extensive experience with all routes of insertion. With the armpit incision technique I routinely use an endoscope and Keller funnel for precision and ease of implant insertion The implants may be either saline or silicone gel with most patients opting for gel due to the more natural feel and less issues with visible implant rippling. Implants may also be teardrop shaped however problems with rotation, producing an unnatural appearance, make them a secondary choice compared to round implants. The choice of implant type , placement and route of insertion remains the choice of the patient. Procedure time is usually 1 hour. Sutures may or not be dissolvable. If not suture removal is at 6 days following the procedure.


Discomfort in the first days following the surgery may be significant, but by a week most patient are returning to normal activities with the exception of those involving strenuous upper extremity. Unrestricted activities are usually achieved by 3 weeks. Dr. Kiener, a qualified breast augmentation surgeon, is avaialable for consultations and to answer any questions.

Breast Lift/Mastopexy in Reno

About The Procedure

A breast lift in Reno, also known as a mastopexy, can be a great solution for those who have sagging or otherwise misshapen breasts. An experienced plastic surgeon can correct physical issues caused by aging, genetics or other factors while restoring the breast area to look more youthful and attractive. This procedure involves the surgical removal of excess skin and breast tissue before lifting and reshaping the breast’s contour. Once completed, the chest area is redefines, providing an aesthetic look that many proudly wear. Women considering breast lift surgery should consult responsible, reputable surgeons to help them make an informed decision that best fits their individual needs and desired results..

Who Would Benefit?

Patients who will benefit from a breast lift are women who either have congenitally droopy breasts or those who have developed droopiness following child bearing. The ideal candidate still has adequate breast volume, but if not an implant may be placed at the same time.

The Procedure

The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia. Breast lifts require incisions on the breast to reshape the skin envelope as well as lift the nipple. Incision patterns are described as a donut, incision limited to around the areola, lollipop, incision around the areola and extending inferiorly, and anchor, incision around the areola, inferiorly with a transverse component. The incision pattern is dictated by the degree of nipple descent as well as the discrepancy between breast skin envelope and volume. Re-positioning and reshaping the breast tissue can be performed in a number of ways. Because of the incisions around the areola the chance of nipple sensory disturbance is increased relative to breast augmentation. Procedure time is typically 2 to 3 hours. Sutures are beneath the skin and dissolve.


Patients may return to light physical activity within a week and unrestricted activities at 3 to 4 weeks. Also, patients may utilize pain medications as necessary for many plastic surgery procedures.
