Highly Recommended!!! I was referred to Dr. Mesna by 2 family members and a friend. Dr. Mesna and his practice far exceeded what I thought was great service, manner, professionalism and communication. I had breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction on my hips thighs and butt, back in September 2018. I am very happy with the results as I watch my body continue to change in healing. The communication of expectations was spot on from Dr. Mesna and the staff. Dr. Mesna made me feel so comfortable and safe in his hands.View On Google
Choosing the Right Implant and Techniques Customizing Your Surgery
Breast implants come in a range of profiles, sizes, shapes, and types. The best option for your needs will depend on your desire for volume, shape, or enhanced cleavage. Dr. Mesna can help you understand the various options and how each would look on your figure during your consultation at our Minneapolis practice. Both saline and silicone implants are approved for breast augmentation by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Saline implants are made of a soft silicone shell that is filled with saline, or salt water. These implants are placed within your breasts before they are filled, allowing for a smaller incision. These implants are safe and generally cost less than their silicone gel counterparts. There is no difference in the quality of surgical placement, but many of our Minneapolis area patients find that saline does not achieve the same life-like feel as silicone.
Silicone breast implants are filled with a viscous silicone gel. These implants are highly regarded for their ability to provide a lifelike appearance and feel, and when placed by Dr. Mesna, can last a long time. Patients who currently have minimal breast tissue can benefit from the supportive nature of silicone. These implants are lighter than saline implants, which can prevent downward displacement over time and allow you to maintain a perkier, firmer look. Silicone breast implants also carry a lower chance of breakage, but can be more expensive than the saline option.
Since they are inserted empty, saline implants can be placed through a wide variety of techniques, including incisions around your nipple, beneath your armpit, and along your breast crease.
Silicone implants are typically only inserted through larger incisions beneath the breasts or around your nipple.
The type of incision technique you select can also depend in part on the amount of scarring you are comfortable with and your body type. Dr. Mesna works carefully to minimize visible scarring and can help you understand all of your options.
Breast implants can be placed above or below your pectoral muscles. Subglandular implants are placed above the pectoral muscles. This placement technique typically heals the fastest because fewer tissues are disturbed during surgery.
Submuscular breast implants are placed completely or partially beneath the chest muscles. Although this requires a longer healing time, many patients believe that this placement method looks more natural. The right placement for you can depend on your build and the look you hope to achieve.

I recently had a tummy tuck with Dr. Mesna in late December of 2020. I had been self-conscious about the hanging skin on my abdomen for years which was compounded by separation of my abdominal muscles from 2 pregnancies. Dr. Mesna exceeded my expectations!... Dr. Mesna is meticulous and a perfectionist, my scar is so thin and perfect and I know it will fade to nothing over time. My only regret is not doing this sooner!View On Google
Dr. Mesna is a skilled and safe doctor whom I have recommended to friends/family. Surrounded by the best clinical staff who all have lots of experience with routine elective procedures, I really trust him and the practice. Thrilled with the results!! Thanks Dr. Mesna!View On Google
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
Fat transfer, also known as natural breast augmentation, can also achieve beautiful results and is often used on its own to improve breast size or to complement other procedures. This approach requires an additional cosmetic surgery procedure: liposuction. We perform liposuction to remove excess fat from specific areas of your body. This fat can be processed, and then injected into the breasts to increase breast size or produce a more natural look in women with breast implants.
If you are aged 35 or older, you will be required to undergo a mammogram before your breast augmentation procedure. It is important to have a normal mammogram result in order to undergo surgery because the procedure can aggravate unhealthy breast tissue. Be sure to obtain your mammogram a few months prior to your surgery to ensure the best results.
EKG or Blood Tests
If you are over 40 years old, you may also need to receive an EKG or undergo blood tests to further ensure that you are in good health. These tests do not take long and are important to the success of your breast augmentation. Dr. Mesna and our team can coordinate all tests with local specialists to maintain a streamlined treatment timeline for you.
How We Reduce Post-Operative Problems
Our plastic surgeon uses advanced techniques to prevent infections, capsular contracture, implant deflation, and rippling. While issues such as capsular contracture, leakage, and rippling are all possible long-term risks, Dr. Mesna achieves excellent and long-lasting results.
Dr. Mesna also practices conservative surgery whenever possible, and he understands that the nipple has potential to lose sensation after surgery. However, Dr. Mesna's precise and skilled hand can ensure a safe procedure that does not result in a loss of sensation in the nipple.
