Dr. Baroody is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in a variety of cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation, breast reduction and mastopexy (breast lifts). He uses a variety of techniques and implants depending on the individual patient.
Breast size is important to many women for a variety of reasons. If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, breast augmentation surgery is a choice to consider. Often times, women notice a decrease in breast size or a change in shape after pregnancy and nursing, or after losing weight. Breast augmentation may enhance your breast size and shape while giving you the more proportional figure you always wanted. The implant used for breast augmentation may be filled with saline (dilute salt water) or silicone which is inserted through a small incision on the edge of the areola or under your breast.
Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure that removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and more firm. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to produce smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of the body.
Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity change a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Although, no surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity. Breast lift surgery may also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.
