Breast Surgery for Increased Confidence & a Healthy Well-Being
There are many reasons individuals seek breast surgery, but all can result in increased confidence and a healthy well-being. Several types of surgeries are available, from what are commonly known as breast enhancement/breast augmentation to reduction and reconstructive procedures.
Breast augmentation is a procedure that enhances size and shape of the breasts. The FDA approves both saline and silicone breast implants for cosmetic breast enlargement surgery. Atalla Plastic Surgery has information available to help you decide on the best breast implants for you. Women looking to increase size or volume post-pregnancy, or those seeking to even out differing breast sizes may choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery.
Breast reduction surgery is typically done for those experiencing physical discomfort caused by large and/or sagging breasts that can often hinder the ease of activities. Breast reduction is a solution for women who suffer from back and neck pain due to oversized breasts causing disproportionate weight in the body. Heavy breasts can also cause skin irritation, breathing difficulties, and skeletal issues. A breast reduction will lessen excess weight and result in firmer and better proportioned breasts.
A Mastopexy, or breast lift, can benefit women who’ve experienced aging in the breast area due to maturity, pregnancy, nursing, or a combination of these. The result is improved appearance and younger looking breasts with increased firmness, volume, and proportion.
Patients who’ve undergone a mastectomy to remove cancerous tissue can benefit from breast reconstruction surgery, which can be performed immediately following the mastectomy. Breast reconstruction is a worthwhile procedure that supports and benefits those who’ve endured difficult breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
For women who’ve received breast enhancement surgery, it is beneficial to undergo a breast revision with new or reshaping of implants approximately every 10 years to maintain appearance and form, as their shape can change due to aging of the surrounding tissue. A revision also offers patients the opportunity to get a breast enlargement or reduction.
Women aren’t the only patients to experience a need for breast uplift. Even men who are healthy and in good physical shape sometimes experience large or sagging breasts caused by extra glandular tissue. A male breast reduction, or gynecomastia, can omit unnecessary tissue and result in a naturally smooth and firm chest area.
