Beautify Enhance Renew
Women who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their breasts may experience low self-esteem and a diminished sense of confidence. Some women feel as though their natural breasts are too small or too large, others dislike the way their breasts have changed after pregnancy or with age, and some women are facing the emotional difficulties of losing their breasts due to cancer. Breast surgery improves a woman’s confidence by enhancing the appearance of the breasts.
Surgical Breast Enhancement
Breast augmentation: Enhances the volume, shape, and size of the breasts using implants. Implant type, placement, and incision location are all hand-tailored to match the patient’s desires. Breast augmentation is performed on women with naturally small breasts or women whose breasts have changed after pregnancy or weight loss.
Breast lift surgery: Elevates, tightens, and reshapes breasts with mild to severe ptosis (sagging). Breasts often sag due to age, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy. Breast lift surgery tightens tissues, removes sagging skin, and repositions the nipples so that the breasts are more firm, elevated, and perky. Breast lift surgery can be performed alone or in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction.
Breast reduction: Reduces the size of overly large, cumbersome breasts that contribute to chronic pain and unwanted attention. Large breasts are often out of balance with the rest of the body, causing both physical and emotional discomfort. Breast reduction removes excess tissue and skin to form smaller, more balanced breasts. This procedure is often combined with a breast lift.
Breast revision: Corrects or alters the results of previous breast surgery. Breast revision may be performed for aesthetics—to modify the size, shape, or texture of an implant, or necessity—to remove and replace implants that have ruptured or suffered from capsular contracture, symmastia, bottoming out, or double bubble deformity.
Breast reconstruction: Rebuilds the breast after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction is performed using implants and tissue expanders; or through the flap method, where tissue is taken from the patient’s abdomen, back, or thigh and relocated to rebuild the breast. Depending on your treatment plan, reconstruction may be performed in conjunction with or after mastectomy, and aids women who are suffering both the emotional and physical side-effects of breast cancer.
Breast implants are available in:
- Saline: Silicone shell filled with sterile saline solution. This option offers a uniform shape and feel and is FDA-approved for patients 18 years and older.
- Silicone: Silicone shell filled with a soft silicone gel. These implants offer a more natural shape and feel and are approved for patients 22 years and older.
- IDEAL IMPLANT®: This structured breast implant offers the comfort and peace of mind of a saline-filled implant while providing the natural look and feel of a silicone one.
Autologous fat transfer: Fat is removed from the abdomen, hips, thighs, or buttocks through liposuction and then transferred to the breasts to provide natural augmentation. This procedure comes without implant-related complications, such as rejection or capsular contracture, and offers results that look and feel natural.
