From Our Website

As a board certified, South Carolina plastic surgeon, Dr C. Brett Carlin has been practicing state of the art cosmetic plastic surgery in Columbia since 1998. His practice is limited to aesthetic surgery of the face, breast, and body, as well as reconstructive surgery of the face and breast for defects incurred as a result of cancer. By narrowing his practice in scope, he is able to offer his patients truly superior care and expertise. Our specialty encompasses a very broad spectrum. If you only do a few cases of a specific procedure each year, you never really gain meaningful experience nor expertise with it.


Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery are often seeking relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction can usually solve these problems as well as improve the size and shape of your breasts. Following breast reduction, your breasts will be more proportional to the rest of your body, body aches and pains caused by the excessive breast weight may be relieved, plus your clothes will fit you better. Very pleased with my results. Dr. Carlin and his staff are professional and friendly.


Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of your breasts. Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to raise and firm them, resulting in a more youthful breast contour. Some patients may be unhappy that they have lost a significant amount of breast volume over time. In such cases, implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift can increase breast size at the same time as the shape and position of the breasts are enhanced.


He is an amazing plastic surgeon. I had breast implants and he did the exact size needed and was very thorough in his explanation. Your surgeon may recommend surgery, which involves making cuts under your chin or behind your ears or both to access a neck muscle called the platysma. Sometimes, that may even mean removing some muscle. Newer procedures may let your surgeon make smaller cuts and use an endoscope (a small camera attached to a thin tube) to complete your surgery. Make sure you ask your surgeon for all your options during your consultation.
