A perkier, shapelier silhouette can be yoursLoss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of breasts. Patients satisfied with the size of their breasts can address these changes by undergoing a mastopexy, often referred to as a ‘breast lift’. A mastopexy can restore a youthful, perky appearance. Some patients, however, may be unhappy with the loss in volume, or breast size, that often accompanies sagging. In such cases, breast implants in conjunction with a breast lift can help deliver a little more fullness along with improved shape.
Reconstruction opens a world of possibilities after a mastectomyModern surgical techniques make it possible to reconstruct a natural-looking breast after a partial or complete mastectomy (breast removal) for cancer or other diseases. Reconstruction can be performed immediately following a mastectomy, so that the patient awakens with a new breast. Alternatively, reconstruction may begin years after a mastectomy. The choice is yours.
Breast reduction can help you shed what’s weighing you downPatients who undergo breast reduction surgery are often seeking relief from the physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of their large breasts. However, the benefits of a breast reduction are NOT limited to relief from neck and back pain. They also include a significant improvement in breast size and shape, as breasts are always “lifted” during the procedure. Smaller, more perky breasts lead to improved body proportion and can make it easier to find clothing that fits. Breast reductions typically have high patient satisfaction rates because they address both functional (symptoms of heavy breasts) and esthetic concerns.
