William R. Burden, M.D. Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Burden is best known for pioneering the development of his own “No Scar on the Breast®” technique for augmentation mammoplasty. He worked diligently to perfect this version of transaxillary breast augmentation and now actively teaches the practice to other surgeons to help them improve their skills to the benefit of countless patients nationwide. However, Dr. Burden was not content to rest on his laurels. He continued to develop the technique until he could also utilize it to perform complicated breast implant revision procedures without any incisions on the breast itself. These implant swapping operations are already difficult, but utilizing the transaxillary approach has made Dr. Burden’s preferred method truly proprietary in clinical application.
William R. Burden has been recognized by Mentor Corporation as a revolutionary provider of breast surgery and has been named a primary investigator for a new style of adjustable silicone breast implant. Dr. Burden currently offers a variety of implant prosthetic styles to accommodate all body types, aesthetic preferences and special needs for augmentation, augmentation revision and augmentation/lift applications.

As a very enthusiastic computer aficionado, Dr. Burden is proud to offer virtual reality software that helps patients to better envision the actual results of aesthetic procedures on their anatomies before actually undergoing any surgical intervention.
