Most likely when it comes to breast surgeries, this wasn’t the first thing on your mind. However, breast reductions can help reduce neck pain, back pain, skin irritation, bra strap indentations, and numbness or weakness from large, heavy breasts. This procedure removes excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue, and scarring can be extensive. Reductions of the breast appearance, volume, and contour occur while still maintaining breast sensation and function.
With a breast reconstruction procedure, the breasts are recreated with the desired appearance, contour, and volume. Recreation of the nipple-areola is also performed as well. Using implants or your own tissue are the two methods of this type of surgery, and if tissue is the method you use it can include tissue from the abdominal wall, back muscle or a segment of buttock. This type of surgery can help those who have previously had parts of their breasts removed from the treatment of breast cancer, it can help make your chest look more balanced in a bra or bathing suit, and can improve your confidence in how you see yourself.
Whether your breasts show signs of sagging from age, childbirth, or even breastfeeding, this is a very popular procedure used to restore a youthful appearance. In some cases, it is merely a matter of the skin not strong or resilient enough to support the weight of the breasts, causing them to sag. By removing that excess skin, you can give your breasts a lift to improve your appearance.
This procedure is often performed in addition to the breast lift procedure, as this is performed to enhance the appearance, size, and contour of the breasts. If you feel your breasts are too small, need to be altered after size loss due to pregnancy, or need a correction in symmetry, this is the procedure for you. By using implants placed over or under the pectoral muscle, your breasts can be shaped to fit your desire.
