Education, Experience, and Credentials

A successful breast augmentation surgeon should have extensive training backed by years of experience. Dr. Chhatre is a board-certified plastic surgeon and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. He is also a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS). Dr. Chhatre opened his own practice in 1994, and he has remained committed to furthering his knowledge in the fields of breast, body, and facial cosmetic surgery. In addition to being renowned for his skill, Dr. Chhatre is also highly compassionate. His career includes serving as a surgeon in the burn unit at the University of Kansas Medical Center, where he performed head and face reconstruction procedures.

Personalized Approach to Surgery 

It is important to feel comfortable with your breast augmentation surgeon. Dr. Chhatre encourages patients to ask questions during all stages of the process so that they can remain comfortable and confident. Through his years of experience performing breast augmentations, Dr. Chhatre has developed his own unique approach for achieving the most natural results in the safest way possible. This approach involves utilizing:

  • Submuscular Implant Placement: Submuscular placement involves positioning the implant under the pectoral muscle, while subglandular placement involves placing the implant above the muscle, just behind the breast tissue. Dr. Chhatre chooses to utilize submuscular placement because he believes it can achieve a more natural-looking appearance and feel, it minimizes the likelihood of interference with mammography exams, and it lowers the risk of post-surgical complications.
  • Inframammary Fold Incisions: Dr. Chhatre prefers to make incisions along the inframammary fold, which is the crease on the underside of the breast. This incision technique offers minimally conspicuous scarring, allows patients to maintain nipple sensation, and poses less risk of damage to surrounding areas of the breast.

During your consultation, Dr. Chhatre will review your custom surgical plan and discuss the different breast implant options available to determine the type that will best achieve your goals. Depending on your unique needs, your surgery may be performed at our on-site surgical suite or in a hospital. 

Comprehensive Follow-up Care

In addition to comprehensive planning, a successful breast augmentation surgeon will also provide thorough follow-up care. At Summit Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we are committed to providing all of our patients with continued post-surgical support. Dr. Chhatre maintains a high level of professionalism and precision to help minimize complications. Although there are potential risks involved with breast augmentation surgery, such as implant deflation and capsular contracture, Dr. Chhatre can help minimize these concerns with periodic follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and recovery.
