Many women come for a breast augmentation consultation thinking that’s what is needed to “perk up” the girls but often end up learning what is really needed is a breast augmentation with a lift (mastopexy) to get the results they are looking for. This combination surgery is excellent for women who want to restore fullness and correct saggy breast that can occur after having children, weight loss or with aging.
While hearing this can be a surprise and lead to more questions about scars, recovery and implant style. It is important to choose an experienced surgeon, one who is a board certified plastic surgeon who can make personalized recommendations based on your proportions and desired final outcome.

A well defined chin helps give balance to the face and creates a major part of one’s profile. When people look in the mirror, most focus on the size and shape of their noses or ears, sagging jowls, or fine wrinkling of the skin. But few explore their chins with the same critical eye.
The chin, while you might not think it at first, actually makes a big difference in the overall look of the face. Chin implants can improve a weak jaw line, and will create a more feminine or masculine look.
Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Chad Robbins in Nashville, TN says “male chins have a squarer and angular appearance and female chins usually have a more rounded chin”.
Dr. Robbins also states that it is common to recommend a chin implant in addition to nose surgery (rhinoplasty) to achieve facial balance. Fortunately, this is a relatively straightforward procedure that can make a major difference.
Our society places a high value on looking young and fit. Today, men of all ages are having plastic surgery. Board certified and Best Nip and Tuck doctor in Nashville, Dr. Chad Robbins, says the most common procedures in which men are requesting include a more balanced nose, a trimmer waistline, eyelid surgery, and no more man-boobs!
Today’s men want a youthful look to stay competitive in the work field. Men want to feel confident and look their best as many of us do. The millennia’s are moving up the ladder, and some men feel the need to look and feel their best to compete.
Though women are generally relatively open about their cosmetic procedures, “men are incredibly secretive,” said Dr. Robbins. As a result, men opt for cosmetic surgery procedures that are less obvious and for which healing can be carefully scheduled.
Some men start with non invasive procedures such as Botox to help erase crow’s feet and brow lines. Botox offers a relatively low-cost, low-commitment options that appeal to some men.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery), liposuction and gynecomastia (male breast reduction) are popular surgery’s however male blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is growing in popularity every year. Men know that eyes are often one of the first features to show signs of aging. Droopy eyelids and wrinkles can cause you to look tired and older than you are. With eyelid surgery, you can reduce signs of aging in the eyes by removing excess skin and fatty tissue.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month… Read about our young survivor who is such an inspiration to all of us at Robbins Plastic Surgery!
My name is Joanne Zampino, and I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Stage 3 Invasive Ductal Breast Cancer at age 39. My son was 18 months old, and my husband was a stay at home Dad; I was the sole provider for our family and was in shock and scared.
The diagnosis was an emotional roller coaster and a long process. Before she even performed the biopsy, the Radiologist Doctor with 35 years’ experience warned me that we were dealing with cancer. It was the first time I heard those words. She looked at me square in the eyes as I was sobbing into a wash cloth and told me not only was I in the best hands in Middle Tennessee, but I was in the best hands in the world. She took time to answer questions about next steps, recommendations for doctors and time to console me.
There’s a Maya Angelou quote about “people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel”. I will never forget how she made me feel on Sept 19, 2016, and how every other doctor and nurse have made me feel supported, comforted and in good hands ever since. The compassionate care continued throughout tests, chemo, a double mastectomy with delayed reconstruction, radiation and now reconstruction. Every doctor and nurse I have encountered on this journey has made me feel like I have a team fighting this battle with me, and together we will win!
When I met Dr. Robbins, he held my hands and apologized for having to meet my husband and me under these circumstances and assured me that I would have all of the information I needed to make the best decisions. We felt his genuine concern and interest in my long-term recovery. I am forever grateful for how every medical Professional has made me feel during this journey. It gave me the knowledge, courage, empowerment, and support to stay positive and keep a smile on my face. I found being happy and positive around others is my small way of giving back while I continue this journey and reflect on the comfort, positivity, and support I receive from my team around me.

The shape and contour of the chin can have a significant effect on the overall appearance of a person’s face. Men and women in Nashville, Franklin and surrounding areas who have a recessed or “weak” chin may wish to consider a chin augmentation with board-certified Nashville plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., to help them achieve an aesthetically pleasing balance to the face.
What Is Chin Augmentation Surgery?
Chin augmentation or implant surgery is an effective way to create a face that appears well-balanced. This procedure improves the shape and appearance of the chin. Inserting a small implant through the mouth or along the jawline provides a more defined chin.
Are you a good candidate for a chin implant?
The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider a chin implant:
- You have a weak, receding chin and wish to improve the appearance of your profile by increasing the projection of your chin
- You have an undefined or weak jaw line that does not help frame your face or distinguish your neck
- You wish to correct facial deformities resulting from injury or congenital conditions
- You are considering Rhinoplasty to create a face that appears well-balanced
There are many alternatives that can alter the structure of your face. Along with facial implants, your aesthetic plastic surgeon might also discuss options such as fat grafting, bone repositioning, bone grafting and dermal grafting.
If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.
Making sure to choose a board certified plastic surgeon, Chad Robbins is skilled in the most advanced cosmetic and reconstructive surgery techniques for men and women in and around Nashville and Franklin. In addition to performing facial plastic surgery, he is a leading provider of breast augmentation, liposuction, and other body contouring procedures. His focus is on helping patients enhance their quality of life as they achieve their aesthetic goals. Please call 615-401-9454 to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Robbins in Nashville.

Dermal fillers can help replace the volume in your face that is lost with age. These are injected into the lines and wrinkles in your face to plump them up and provide a more youthful look. There are several types of fillers available:
- Hyaluronic acid (Juvederm® Ultra XC/Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, Voluma® and Restylane/Restylane®-L, Restylane® Silk and our newest and more natural fillers-Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne). Hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in human skin that forms part of the matrix holding skin cells together. It is also a component in collagen. These products attract water like a sponge, filling and plumping the tissue. Voluma® is made up of thicker molecules therefore perfect for plumping up those cheeks and it’s longer lasting! Voluma is more expensive but can last up to 2 years.
- Calcium hydroxylapatite(Radiesse®). This mineral dissolves after a time and is absorbed by your body. It is injected in the form of a gel to fill in wrinkles between the nose and mouth and to provide more definition to thinning areas of the face.
Are dermal fillers right for you? If you are noticing facial wrinkles, folds and loss of volume in your face, then dermal fillers are just what you need to get that youthful look. Dermal fillers may be used in other places such as hands and lips at a physician’s discretion.
Robbins Plastic Surgery has highly trained nurse injectors. If you would like to set up a personal consultation to discuss which filler is best for you, call our office 615-401-9454 or visit our website www.robbinsplasticsurgery.com
