COSMETIC BREAST SURGERY
COSMETIC BREAST SURGERY
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures. Silicone implants are used to redefine the breast area to provide lift and firmness. If you are unhappy with your breast size or shape, breast augmentation can greatly improve your self-confidence. It can be used to correct volume loss, involution after pregnancy, balance asymmetry, and as a reconstructive technique following other surgery.
We perform breast augmentation under deep sedation and local anesthesia for patients on an outpatient basis. Types of implants being used include saline and silicone implants in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and profiles. Placement of the implant also varies, depending on the patients’ needs. The way in which your doctor places your implant is affected by anatomy, the size and shape of the implant chosen, and the specific goals of the client. Following an examination and the discussion of your objectives, your doctor will help you choose a size and shape that are appropriate for your goals and body type.
Patients can usually return to light activity within two to three days after surgery. Full activity can be resumed within two to three weeks, but activities that entail vigorous movement should be avoided for six weeks to three months.
Breast reduction is a common procedure for women with large breasts that cause discomfort and pain, or who are self-conscious about their breast size. Some women have serious conditions such as back pain shoulder pain, altered stature, etc. We perform most reductions under deep sedation and local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Some patients, however, may need General Anesthesia in a hospital setting.
During a breast reduction procedure, your doctor removes fat deposits and reshapes the breast, making them smaller and more proportional to your body. This also includes resizing and repositioning of the areola and the removal of excess skin and breast tissue. The goal of a breast reduction is to make the breasts appear identical and symmetrical. The final size of the reduced breasts is determined after swelling has gone down and, in many cases, can take several months. By alleviating the pressure on the spine and shoulders, issues like posture problems, back pain, and others can be resolved with this procedure.
As part of your consultation, your doctor will discuss with you the option of adding a breast implant to replace some volume for a more full or rounded shape following reduction. Patients can usually return to light activity within two to three days after surgery. Full activity can resume within two to three weeks, but activities that entail vigorous movement should be avoided for 12 weeks.
BREAST LIFT (MASTOPEXY)
Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, combats the effects of aging on delicate breast tissue. Over the years, this tissue can lose shape and firmness due to pregnancy, age, and gravity. The mastopexy procedure will raise and reshape the breasts to repair skin elasticity. This procedure can also be used to reduce the size of the areola (the darker circle of skin surrounding the nipple).
