Laser-Assisted Breast Surgery
When performing breast augmentation for Phoenix or Scottsdale area women, I often have to remove excess skin at the lower portion of the breast to reshape the breast mound and give it a more youthful and "perky" appearance.
Normally, some of this excess skin is discarded during the procedure. However, during my year-long fellowship with Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens in Marina Del Rey, California, I trained extensively using his laser-assisted breast surgery techniques (sometimes referred to as the "Laser Bra"). The goal of surgery was always to provide the most natural, rejuvenated appearing breasts possible.

More about Laser-Assisted Breast Enhancement
With laser-assisted breast enhancement in Phoenix, a carbon-dioxide laser is used to vaporize the surface skin in areas where some of this skin is normally removed and discarded. The laser-assisted technique leaves the thick, deeper layer of skin intact allowing me to suture this lasered skin (internally) to the chest wall. This helps me provide further support for the breast tissue, essentially creating an "internal bra."
There are no added external stitches or visible stitch-marks with this technique. However, it should be noted that whenever excess skin needs to be removed with any kind of surgery, there will always be a scar of some kind. The external scars from laser-assisted breast surgery are comparable to those of standard breast surgery.
I recently published a study with Dr. Stevens in the prestigious journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reviewing hundreds of patients treated with laser-assisted breast surgery. Our study showed that this technique is a safe alternative to the usual (non-laser-assisted) method of breast lift and breast reduction surgery, which removes the surface skin with a scalpel.

Women considering plastic surgery in Phoenix and Scottsdale are generally extremely happy with their results from breast lift and breast reduction surgery, whether or not the laser is used. I believe that the use of the carbon-dioxide laser is an elegant alternative to the standard approach, and that is why I offer this surgery to my patients.
