Barry Eppley, MD, DMD, is a top cosmetic surgeon in Indianapolis who regularly performs breast lifts and revisions of previous surgeries, including difficult cases such as breast reshaping in patients who have lost significant amounts of weight after bariatric surgery. For patients who desire larger, fuller, more voluptuous breasts, he performs breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement surgery. Dr. Eppley believes patient education is important to the success of any cosmetic procedure for the breast, and allows the patient to choose between saline and silicone breast implants once they are educated about their advantages and disadvantages. He uses a precise, gentle approach so his patients enjoy a quick, comfortable recovery (typically 1 – 3 days) with minimal swelling and usually little bruising. Dr. Eppley’s approach does not require the use of drainage tubes during surgery, so patients do not have sutures that need to be removed.
Dr. Eppley’s exceptional surgical skill, aesthetic judgment and communication are the keys to the outstanding results he is able to achieve. Seeing patients from all walks of life, he treats women with varying backgrounds and goals. To restore changes that have occurred due to pregnancy or gravity, he also specializes in breast lifts (mastopexy); and for women who desire both perkier and fuller breasts, Dr. Eppley’s combined enlargement and lift procedure known as “augmentation mastopexy” may be appropriate. Dr. Eppley also performs revision breast surgery, which is designed to improve or correct the result of previous breast surgery. Many women who already have implants placed by another surgeon and are not fully satisfied with their appearance have had tremendous improvements following revision augmentation surgery by Dr. Eppley.
Dr. Eppley’s practice is based in the Eppley Lifestyle Spa medical spa facilities (eppleylifestylespa.com), which he founded at Indiana University Health North in Carmel, formerly known as Clarian North Medical Center (iuhealth.org/north) and Indiana University Health Downtown Hospital. These hospital-based spa facilities provide an unparalleled atmosphere of warmth and privacy in safe, secure, state-of-the-art environments.
