Breast Implant Selection Atlanta Marietta Georgia

DR. THOMAS LINTNER: I present to my patients that we can put in either option and it’s purely their decision. If they ask me which is a better implant, I would say silicone feels more natural and looks more natural. You can go a little bigger and still look better.
We tell patients come in with an open mind, if they’re afraid of the implant silicone or saline then they shouldn’t get it. We follow our patients for their practice lifetime. That gives them confidence that we feel confident about the implant they are using.
Silicone implants cost more than saline and some patients choose purely on price. If they want an implant that feels like a real breast, saline implants tend to feel more like a water balloon. Silicone tends to feel like a real breast. And so patients can feel them, they feel each implant in the office and they can choose whichever they want.

Mommy Makeover Surgery Atlanta Georgia Dr. Thomas Lintner

DR. THOMAS LINTNER: After pregnancy we typically do three distinct operations. We look at their abdominal contour; we like to give them a flatter stomach and smaller stomach, if possible. We then do breasts as a second operation. We either do augmentation, if they just need an increase in size, or do a lift procedure if they’re trying to reshape their breasts. And then the third operation we do very frequently is liposuction.
Most women after they deliver wait about six months before they come in for a consultation to let their bodies readapt, so they don’t need as much surgery as they would if they came in right away.

Plastic Surgery Procedures Atlanta Thomas Lintner MD

DR. THOMAS LINTNER: Basically what we do in this practice is focus on three areas.  We focus mainly on the breasts, both from the cosmetic aspect to the reconstructive aspect.  We also focus on the body as far as body contouring in general.  I generally consider liposuction, tummy tuck, lift procedures like breast lift, thigh lift, arm lift, as body contouring and that’s usually excising skin and fat and you can do them separate or together. And then we consider the face as sort of another arena.  We take care of facial problems from cosmetic facial procedures, brow lifts, blepharoplasty, which is eye lifts, face lifts.  We consider skin care to be a cornerstone to treatment of the face, injectables; we focus on all aspects of plastic surgery.

Breast Augmentation Patient Experience Atlanta Georgia

RUSTI: My breast surgeon suggested Dr. Lintner.  I have a friend on the staff at the Board of Directors at Kennestone, he recommended him very highly.  So I had no problem coming here.  There was no other choices for me.  This was my one and only choice.  The staff was wonderful. Everybody is always nice, helpful.  Every procedure that I’ve had, I’ve been happy with, more than happy.  The results were unbelievable.  I was thrilled.  I mean no problems, nothing.
