Breast augmentation, one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, enhances the size and shape of the breast by placing a breast implant behind the breast tissue. This provides a more feminine figure, increases clothing options, and helps women feel better about the way they look. The procedure is customized for each patient – the breast implants can be placed above or below the muscle. Scars can be hidden under the arm, around the nipple, or under the breast.
Recently we have been using a rapid recovery system. Over 90% of our patients exhibit no bruising and their pain is controlled by non-narcotic analgesics. No bandages, drains, or special bras are used. Patients typically can shower, eat regular food, and leave the house the day of surgery. You may lift objects, drive, and resume normal activities within 48 hours of surgery even with implants beneath the muscle. All the sutures are buried underneath the skin and do not require removal.

I have visited with two different gynecological nurses whom I told I was having the surgery. One has had the surgery herself by another doctor and she told me that she would only recommend one doctor for breast augmentation and that was Gene Sloan. Both nurses told me that they had seen many results from different doctors and that Dr. Sloan’s were the best! I thought that was a great testament to Dr. Sloan. I just wanted him to know what wonderful things are being said by women who have not been his patients.
