Are you looking to feel more confident, improve your self-esteem, and enhance your appearance? There are a variety of reasons why women pursue a breast augmentation. Perhaps you want to achieve better body proportions or correct breast asymmetry. Maybe you want to increase volume that was lost from pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss that left your breasts sagging and deflated. No matter the reason, Dr. Sutton Graham takes the time to listen to your story and learn why receiving breast implants is important to you. Performing breast procedures exclusively since 1998, Dr. Graham is ready to help you reach your goals.

About Dr. Sutton Graham

Dr. Graham is dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized treatment to each one of his patients. He founded the Aesthetic Center Greenville in 1990, and is board-certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Many of the surgical procedures he performs take place at his nationally accredited, on-site surgical center. As outlined on the Aesthetic Center website:

“Unlike a typical hospital or multi-specialty surgery center, our facilities are used only for surgery procedures. We do not have many different surgeons treating all types of unrelated procedures and diseases. Our accredited, on-site facilities are used only by surgeon Sutton Graham, M.D., and each member of our staff really understands the unique needs and concerns of cosmetic surgery patients. Our specialized facilities and expertise helps ensure the quality and safety of each surgical procedure. In addition, we have carefully designed a number of protocols to optimize the postoperative recovery of each patient.”

A Breast Augmentation with IDEAL IMPLANTS

Dr. Graham strives to offer the latest innovations and technological advancements in the plastic surgery industry. In fact, he is part of an exclusive network of board-certified plastic surgeons eligible to offer IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants to his patients. He was recently named an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon for his extensive experience and knowledge with this new type of breast implant. This is how he describes his work with IDEAL IMPLANTS:

“For years, patients have expressed their concerns over the potential effects of ruptured silicone gel implants. To address these worries, Aesthetic Center Greenville offers the innovative IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implant . . .Patients at our Greenville, SC, practice can rest assured that they will receive personalized care from a highly skilled surgeon who has their best interests in mind … At Aesthetic Center Greenville, our patients’ safety is our number one priority, which is why we choose to offer the most advanced options available for your surgery needs.”


Many women are familiar with silicone gel implants or unstructured saline implants, but a new kind of breast implant is now available. IDEAL IMPLANTS are unlike any other type of breast implant used for a breast augmentation. Their advanced internal structure consists of a series of implant shells nested together that hold two separate chambers filled with saline. The IDEAL IMPLANT website explains the benefits of this unique combination:

“Years of research and testing led to this innovative design, developed to better meet the needs of women wanting a natural look and feel without concerns relating to silicone gel … The unique internal structure controls movement of the saline for a more natural feel, while reducing folding and wrinkling, thought to be the main cause of implant rupture and deflation. On the outside, the edges have been lowered for a more natural contouring to the chest wall.”

IDEAL IMPLANTS Versus Silicone Gel Implants

Why worry about silicone gel breast implants? When a silicone gel implant ruptures, it is often referred to as a “silent rupture”. The sticky, gel substance leaks from the implant and comes in contact with the surrounding tissues of a woman’s body without her knowledge. Surgery is required to clean out the leaked gel and remove the damaged implant. An MRI or ultrasound scan is often required to detect a silent rupture. But with IDEAL IMPLANTS, a woman can look in the mirror to determine if her implants are intact. No MRIs or ultrasounds needed, and if a rupture occurs, the body safely absorbs the sterile saltwater solution. The IDEAL IMPLANT website says:

“When considering breast implants, women want a beautiful, natural, and safe result that doesn’t leave them wondering whether their implant has ruptured silently.  The IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implant is the latest implant technology designed by a plastic surgeon to give women the best of both worlds—the beautiful look and natural feel they want, with the safety of only saline inside.”

What to Expect During a Consultation

Dr. Graham uses the consultation process to get to know each one of his patients and learn what they hope to accomplish from a breast augmentation. Patients are educated about their breast implant options and given the opportunity to see and feel the various types of breast implants in different sizes, filler types, and shape. Dr. Graham utilizes advanced 3-D imaging to assist patients in envisioning their potential results. Patients can also try on “breast sizers” as an additional tool in determining the right size breast implants. Every patient receives a customized treatment plan that outlines exact implant type, placement, and incision location. Plus, Dr. Graham works hard to ensure his patients are prepared for surgery and understand what they can anticipate during recovery as well. The Aesthetic Center website states:

“At our Greenville, SC, practice, also serving patients from Asheville, Spartanburg, and surrounding areas, the planning process for breast augmentation is exceptionally detailed. This provides patients with the best possible outcome. Dr. Graham will perform an evaluation and discuss your goals as a starting point for your treatment.”
