State-of-the-Art, Multi-Specialty Surgical Center

"Dr. Burden did my breast augmentation after my first child. They were so natural and fit my body type so well, that no one ever suspected I'd had them done. They went from deflated after breastfeeding to the breasts I had in high school."

— Breast Augmentation Patient on Vitals.com

Should I Get Breast Augmentation?

Every woman is unique and beautiful in her own way, so reasons for breast augmentation are varied and diverse. In general, this procedure is performed to increase breast size and improve breast shape. Breast augmentation may be right for you if you want to:

  • Increase the size of naturally small breasts
  • Return breasts to the size they were before weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding
  • Balance breasts that are different sizes
  • Attain a full, curvy bustline
  • Balance proportion between the upper body and the hips

I had cosmetic surgery done by Dr. Burden and his Team. The results are amazing! People tell me I look much younger and I feel great now in my nice dresses. Joan Pleat, Surgical Nurse, was very compassionate, optimistic, and professional throughout the entire process. Joan takes a personal interest in her patients. She explained the surgery and results to expect in detail. She is integral to the seamless support I received from the pre-operative consultation throughout my recovery --- Joan was right there and always available to answer any of my questions or concerns. She is the best. Highly recommend!!

I have so many great things to say about not only this place but the people. From my breast augmentation, laser hair removal, BBL and even facials I have loved my results with every service! Now let’s talk breast augmentation! With it being the first surgery I have ever had, I’d do it all over again! The people were comforting + genuine which is exactly what I needed. The results are EXACTLY what I pictured for myself and Dr. Burden was amazing throughout the entire process!

Absolutely love Destin Plastic Surgery! Traveled from Tennessee to have my cosmetic procedure done here and they made it all so easy! From the consultation all the way to the post op appointments, Joan took such good care of me. Dr. Burden was able to achieve exactly what I wanted and I am so happy with the outcome. Natalie was more than willing to help with booking my appointments around my travel dates and Michelle was great to work with when it came to the billing side of things. Highly recommend this facility for any cosmetic procedures! They truly love what they do and will take great care of you from start to finish! Thank you guys so much! This is wasn’t my first time using them and it definitely won’t be my last!

I went to Dr. Burden 7 years ago for my breast augmentation and absolutely loved the outcome! As time went by I decided to get a explant done because I was over them and wanted a more slim/sleek look, he did a phenomenal job! I had my explant done over a week ago. I’m so impressed with the way how I look! I thought I was going to end up like I did before (small A cup) and I’m pleased to say I’m a full B if not small C. I’m truly so thankful and happy with Burdens work. Thank you Dr. Burden, Natalie and Joan! ALSO, Botox Bill did my lip injections a few times a couple years back and I still have filler in them. He’s the only one I’ll ever trust to do it. This is a 10 star facility they will not disappoint you!

I visited the Anti Aging Skincare Clinic and received a HydraFacial with Dermaplaning from Trish, and hands down, Trish is simply the best! Her knowledge about skincare is unparalleled. My skin concerns were dullness, congested pores, hormonal acne and hyperpigmentation. After my treatment, my skin was instantly glowing! It felt clean, hydrated, and looked so smooth. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Trish and the level of care and service she provides to her clients. I’ve already booked my next appointment with her, and I’m excited to have found such an exceptional esthetician in the area!

I had my explant done yesterday and I’m so pleased already after 24 hours! Dr. Burden listened to exactly what I wanted and made it happen! His nurse Joan is also on top of it ALWAYS! They got me in quicker then normal and I thank them so much for that. Dr. Burden has a great team there, I was so anxious when I went in for surgery and the anesthesiologist put me at ease, pulled my records to go over them with me! This is a 10 star facility, I’ll never go anywhere else. I’m so lucky to be a local in Destin so my drive is short and I can visit when needed. Thank you so much Destin Plastic Surgery!

Destin plastic surgery is nationally acclaimed for a good reason!! They are a top notch, top tier office. I have just had my second procedure done in two years. Two years ago I had the tummy tuck & augmentation after losing 50+ lbs. The results were far beyond my expectations as well as Dr. Burden fixed cesarean scars.I have since gone on to do professional bodybuilding shows as my results were spectacular. I am two weeks post facial work, and I am over the moon about the results. Dr. Burden and Joan are a phenomenal team. From the first day when the procedures are discussed, to the meeting just prior to the surgery to review that information again about what to do ahead of time, what to expect from the surgery, and post-care. The day of surgery the procedure was reviewed again by Dr. Burden, and the nursing staff reviewed with my caretaker exactly what to expect. Post care with Dr. Burden and Joan were professional and on the money. I am grateful for both Dr. Burden and Joan’s gentle care and coaching. I follow their directions exactly, and my results were simply magnificent. I would only trust my myself and family to this amazing team.

I had a fantastic experience from start to finish at Destin Plastic Surgery. The staff is very friendly and professional and Dr. Burden did an absolutely perfect job with my surgery. From the initial consultation to my surgery being delayed due to Covid through my surgery and recovery the staff was phenomenal. I am very happy with my results and highly recommend Dr. Burden and Destin Plastic Surgery to anyone looking to find a surgeon. I had some specific concerns for my recovery timeline and any time I asked a question, if they could not answer my call immediately, I was called back very quickly, they addressed all of my concerns and were very helpful working with me and my primary care physician. I will also note, when my surgery was delayed due to elective surgeries being temporarily suspended, the staff was extremely helpful with rescheduling and keeping up great communication with me. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Dr. Burden performed a tummy tuck two years ago. The results have been simply extraordinary. Not a day goes by I don't marvel at the results. In addition to the tummy tuck, I had an injury to my hip bone and a large scar that he had to work around. He made the injury look very symmetrical and as natural as possible. My abs are rock hard with nice muscle definition. What was truly remarkable, however, was the results of the back liposuction. He told me I would not be happy with the tummy tuck alone. While I read on the internet that back liposuction is rarely very helpful, I trusted Dr. Burden. The results were astonishing. I mean that quite literally. All my feminine curves were restored with the back procedure - waist and buttocks. The staff were also exceptional to deal with. The recovery is not for the faint of heart but I don't have a moment of regret. None.

Which Breast Augmentation Incision Is the Best?

While the vast majority of our patients choose the No Scar on the Breast underarm incision, Dr. Burden has significant experience performing augmentations through the inframammary fold (IMF) incision (which is placed in the crease beneath the breast) and the periareolar incision (which runs along the lower border of the areola).

  • If you wear a 2-piece bathing suit, the IMF incision will be visible when you raise your arms and your bathing suit top rises slightly. This incision is also visible when your bathing suit top does not completely cover the inframammary fold area.
  • The most visually prominent area of the breast is the nipple-areola complex. The periareolar incision is visible when topless. If you form a poor scar or a hypertrophic scar, the scar would be in a very noticeable position. Also, this approach is often associated with loss of sensation in the nipple area around the scar and a slightly higher risk of infection.
  • The transaxillary No Scar on the Breast incision is placed in the armpit, not on the breast. In the unlikelihood that a bad scar should form, it is in a well-hidden place. The underarm area has natural creases, so the incision can be well hidden in a crease. Rarely does anyone look under your arm. In addition, the infection rate is lowest using this incision.
  • If you require a breast lift with your augmentation, your surgeon will likely use an incision that combines the IMF and periareolar incisions to remove stretched skin and renew the breast shape.

What Are My Options for Breast Implant Placement?

Once your surgeon makes the incision, he creates a space behind the breast for the implant. This space, called the pocket, can be made directly behind the breast tissue, called a subglandular placement, or behind the chest muscle, called submuscular placement. The table below compares the 2 techniques:

Technique Implant Placement Advantages Disadvantages
Dual-Plane Submuscular Under the chest muscle Results look more natural because implant is covered by the chest muscle

Risk of future breast sagging is diminished because implant is supported by chest muscle

Mammograms are easier to read

May reduce risk of capsular contracture

Longer recovery

Possibly more postoperative discomfort

Implant may move more with forceful contraction of the chest muscle

Subglandular Under the breast tissue but on top of the chest muscle Shorter recovery Implants more noticeable

Breasts more likely to droop in the future because breast tissue is not well supported

Complicates future breast lift procedures because blood supply is removed from beneath the breast tissue

What Is Breast Augmentation Recovery Like?

You may feel stiff and sore in the chest region for the first 2 to 5 days after your breast augmentation procedure. Any dressings will be removed within a week. Your breasts may feel tight and sensitive to the touch, and your skin may feel warm or itchy. You may experience difficulty raising your arms.

You should not lift, push, or pull anything or engage in any strenuous activity or twisting of the upper body. If you have young children at home, it is important to discuss some of your limitations with your doctor so proper instruction can be given to help you during recovery.

After 2 to 3 days, most patients do not require pain medication other than an occasional dose at night. Some bruising and swelling occur initially and then fade over the course of 1 to 2 weeks. Most residual swelling resolves within a month.
