The center provides cost effectiveness for the patient, while allowing total discretion and comfort.

Dr. Robert N. Young has been a leader in breast surgery, being one of the first in the area to utilize minimally invasive surgical techniques.  These procedures, including endoscopic,  reduce scarring, reduce post-surgical pain, and give the best aesthetic results possible. Because of his outstanding reputation, Dr. Young was one of a select national group of prominent surgeons selected by Mentor, manufacturer of breast implants, to perform surgerieswith silicone implants for a nationwide study of the safety of silicone during the nearly 15 year ban of silicone implants. His participation has been instrumental in the development of the newer style implants which increase safety for patients. Dr. Young offers patients their choice of saline or silicone implants, in a variety of sizes, shapes and profiles to suite most body types and personal preferences.
