Breast enlargement, known as augmentation mammoplasty, can enhance the body contour of a woman who is unhappy with her small breast size. This procedure may also be used to improve the loss of breast volume following pregnancy and nursing or with aging. Additionally, the operation may help balance breast asymmetries.
Breast Lift Surgery
Women who have sagging breasts (ptosis) may benefit from breast lift (mastopexy). As women age, the breasts lose shape and firmness. The skin gradually loses its elasticity and no longer holds the breasts in a youthful, upright position. Pregnancy, breast feeding, weight gain and loss are additional factors that can effect skin elasticity. If there are also problems of excess volume or size of the breasts, a reduction may also be done at the same time.
When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, the possibility of losing a breast and how that will affect their body image can be devastating. The most important decision is to ensure all cancer is removed and the necessary treatment modalities are being used. A plastic surgeon can offer advice regarding reconstruction before and after breast cancer surgery.
Female Breast Reduction
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is designed to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts. It may also improve the overall appearance or shape of the breast and help balance breast asymmetries. Heavy breasts can lead to a number of physical complaints such as neck, shoulder and back pain experienced by many women with large breasts.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecomastia is a condition of over developed or enlarged breasts in men. It can occur at any age and can be hereditary, caused by the use of certain medications or the result of hormonal changes and obesity. While the condition generally doesn’t signify a serious health threat, it can have devastating effects on a man’s self-esteem and can cause emotional embarrassment, social embarrassment as well as impair self-confidence.
Inverted Nipple Correction
Inverted nipples is a condition where the nipple, instead of pointing outward, is retracted into the breast. In some cases, the nipple will be temporarily protruded if stimulated, but in others, the inversion remains regardless of stimulus. Both women and men can have inverted nipples.
Breast Revision Surgery
Nearly 3 million women have had breast augmentation in the United States. Breast augmentation is a procedure that is often assumed to be simple in execution but is actually quite complex. Although the majority of women who have had breast augmentation surgery are happy with their results, some women are unhappy with the results and may desire a different look or size than was originally sought after.
