Exceeding Expectations Daily

I just had to let everyone know what an exceptional experience I had with Dr. Walters and his staff at The Modern. After consulting with other surgeons, I knew Dr. Walters was absolutely the only doctor I would entrust in performing my breast augmentation. Dr. Walters listened to my goals and worked with me to achieve the best results for my frame and lifestyle. The Rapid Recovery Method Dr. Walters practices, allowed me to return back to work and my daily activities in a timely manner. I felt so excited and well enough to have a celebratory dinner at Ruth Chris the same day after my surgery. I feel amazing and absolutely love my breasts! Dr. Walters is a star and the only plastic surgeon I would recommend!!


One year later and I’m finally doing my review! :) This one is for all the Mamas thinking about it and not going for it…. Go for it!!!! You deserve it! The only regret I have is not doing this sooner for myself. As a first time surgical experience, getting my breast augmentation from Dr Walters was so seamless and easy. I had a very impressive experience with him and his staff. I have two little ones and the recovery was very easy. After surgery, I continue skincare treatments there with Robin. She is phenomenal! After a struggle with stubborn acne and sun damage over the years, I’m so happy to have found her!! Cannot speak highly enough of everyone at The Modern!


My experience with Dr. Jules Walters and his team was amazing! I chose Dr. Walters as my surgeon for breast augmentation and I could not be happier with my decision! Dr. Walters thoroughly listened to what my expectations were for my surgery. He used my inspiration along with his expertise to give me fantastic results! I am extremely happy with my results and I highly recommend Dr. Walters. Thanks to Dr. Walters and his entire team for the excellent care!


So helpful and knowledgeable. I can’t imagine going through my breast augmentation with a different group. I’ve been wanting to do this for 10years but was always too nervous to take the leap. They put me at ease through the entire process. Communication was easy and questions were always welcomed. I’m so happy with my results and wish I would have done this sooner! Highly recommend Dr. Walters.


I could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Walters and his staff. I have wanted breast augmentation for as long as I can remember, so finding the right surgeon was a big deal. The Modern stood out to me- I couldn’t find a single bad review, the before and after photos were all impressive, so I booked a consult. I was shown 3D imagining to “try on” the implants. I listened to guidance on sizing, since I wasn’t so sure between 2 options. I let Dr. Walters use his best judgement on the day of surgery. He made the right choice for my body and measurements and I am finally happy with the body I have! When they tell you the procedure is “rapid recovery”, they weren’t lying! Surgery on Friday-back at work on Monday feeling only slight soreness and tightness. After only 2 days I didn’t need so much as Tylenol, since my pain was almost nonexistent. If you’re on the fence, just go for it, you will not be disappointed!!


Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient process and is conducted with the patient under general anesthesia. The timing of surgery depends on many factors, including the complexity of the incision, the general reduction technique, and, finally, how much reduction is required. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. For most patients, liposuction is incorporated for fat and tissue elimination to reduce the breast size. During the private consultation, all of these aspects are addressed with Dr. Walters. The potential for scarring is also scrupulously examined and talked through as it is likely to occur. However, surgical skill and advanced techniques have led to a noticeable reduction in the visibility of scarring. Based on the intricacy of the size and overall reduction, either an inverted-T or a straight line (vertical) incision will be incorporated. Breast fat and tissue will then be removed, and the existing skin and tissue will be pulled tight and secured.

Once surgery has been completed, you will be monitored closely in our comfortable recovery facility and then discharged home to begin the healing process. A small, tube-like draining device is usually inserted near the incision area to reduce bleeding and swelling. A compression bra will be put in place for a few days that will boost blood circulation to the breasts during the immediate recovery. In a month or so, the breasts will position themselves and settle and the post-surgery effects will dissipate. The vast majority of our patients say they feel more weightless, lighter, and more reassured. Following surgical breast reduction, you can enjoy the clothes you could not wear before and feel enthusiastic with your new appearance. Keep in mind it is important to maintain a healthy body weight so the outcomes are not affected in a negative way.
