I did a lot in a month. From dysport & juviderm. To a beast lift/argumentation and thigh lift. They educated me fully, I did go prepared with a book of questions. Most were answered before I even asked. I cannot say enough good about Dr. Boudreax and his entire staff. I had 4 different consultations before choosing NSPS, he may have been a little higher-But because he gave me top quality everything. Worth every penny!

Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and his entire office staff are fantastic. What a well-run doctor's office! Dr. Boudreaux is also one of the most conscientious and personable physicians that I have ever met. I recommend Dr. Boudreaux to anyone who is interested in pursuing a personal aesthetics procedure. The office manager, nurses and staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. Thank you Dr. B!

Highly Personalized Treatment For Breast Augmentation

Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne will carefully walk you through your options for breast augmentation, taking into account your goals and body type to help you achieve a more ideal contour. Among the choices in a breast augmentation procedure:

Saline or Silicone Gel Implants

Patients generally have two options for breast implants: saline and silicone. Both are FDA-approved and offer their own particular advantages. Because saline is a simple saltwater solution, saline implants are considered a safer option. In the event of a rupture, your body can naturally absorb the saline. However, silicone implants are often preferred for their more natural look and feel. With silicone implants, you also have the option of selecting a thicker silicone gel filling. Nicknamed gummy bear implants, many people believe the thicker silicone gel feels most like natural breast tissue. Your choice of saline or silicone implants will also impact the size and location of your incisions.

Options for Breast Implants

Implant Size & Shape

Silicone and saline breast implants come in a number of sizes and projections. Dr. Boudreaux or Dr. Claiborne will evaluate your body type and go over your goals to help you select an appropriate size. They will also explain the different breast implant shapes, discussing the advantages of each. While many patients appreciate a teardrop implant's ability to closely mimic the natural shape of the breast, these implants can cause an asymmetrical appearance if they rotate. Round breast implants, which remain the most popular implant shape, retain their shape no matter which direction they may rotate.

Location of the Implants

Breast implants can be placed just under the breast tissue and above the chest muscle or beneath the chest muscle. The choice influences the overall visual effect as well as the location of incision scars. Our plastic surgeons will take into account a number of factors when recommending your implant placement position, including your anatomy, the size and type of implants you are receiving, and your individual goals and desires.

Location of Incisions

In addition to the type of breast implant, our doctors must also determine what type of incision is most appropriate for your goals. Your options include an inframammary incision under the natural fold of the breast, a periareolar incision around your nipple, or an incision in your armpit. Taking into account your body type and aesthetic goals, our plastic surgeons will choose an incision method that will result in minimal scarring, allowing you to enjoy your stunning new figure to the fullest.

Which Do You Need? 
A Breast Augmentation or Breast Lift? 


Breast augmentation focuses on the size and shape of the breast. It does not correct drooping breasts. A breast lift focuses on the position of the breast and does not increase the size of your bust. People who have concerns about both breast volume and position may want to have a breast augmentation done in conjunction with a breast lift.

A Typical Breast Augmentation Surgery

Dr. Boudreaux and Dr. Claiborne perform all breast augmentation procedures at our sterile, state-of-the-art surgical center to ensure your safety and optimal cosmetic results.


Before your surgery, you will have an in-depth consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons to discuss your goals and allow the surgeon to perform a thorough evaluation. After you decide on your treatment, our surgeon will develop a personalized treatment plan customized to your goals and anatomy.

The Surgical Procedure

You will receive general anesthesia administered by a qualified anesthesiologist or certified registered nurse anesthetist. Once you are sedated, our surgeon will carefully make the necessary incisions, which will be done in a manner that minimizes the appearance of scars. Depending on your anatomy and goals, our plastic surgeon will then place the implants either above or below the chest muscle. The incisions are then closed and compression bandages are placed. Drains are not typically used in breast augmentation.


Breast augmentation is an outpatient procedure, and most patients can return home a few hours after their surgery. Dr. Boudreaux, Dr. Claiborne, and their team will provide you with a comprehensive list of post-operative instructions so that you can be prepared for recovery.
