Why do people get breast surgery?
In most cases, people get breast surgery to change or enhance their breast shape. This can involve implants to increase the size and change the contour. Sometimes, however, patients opt for a reduction to improve their body proportions.
What types of breast surgery are commonly done?
The most common type of cosmetic breast surgery is augmentation, which uses implants to achieve the desired shape and size.
Other common procedures are breast lifts, which tighten and lift existing breast tissue, and breast reductions, which remove excess fat and tissue for smaller, perkier breasts.
Choosing a breast surgery that works for you
Choosing the right breast surgery involves many factors; schedule your consultation with Dr. Baroody to see which procedure is right for you! He will able to guide you through your options to decide which procedure or combination of approaches will help you achieve your goals.
Breast augmentation increases the size of the breasts and may also alter the cleavage, contours and shape of the breasts as well. Saline and medical-grade silicone implants come in a range of shapes and sizes, so nearly any result can be achieved.
A breast lift does not increase size. Instead, a incision is made on the breast, and the existing tissue is tightened, contoured, and lifted for a perkier, more youthful silhouette.
Breast augmentation with lift
This is a common combination procedure. Many women prefer to have a breast lift done alongside augmentation so they can get the best result for their body. This allows for a total makeover of the breast with minimal downtime.
Breast revision surgery
Some implants may need to be updated in a breast revision procedure. This allows patients to change the size, shape, or implant material if they wish or to simply have the implants removed with no replacement.
Living with excessively large breasts can be harmful to some patients’ bodies and minds. Breast reduction removes fat, tissue and skin to create smaller breasts that suit the person’s figure.
Gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction)
Men can sometimes develop excess fat and glandular tissue in their chests, leaving them with noticeable breasts. This can be detrimental to their quality of life.
Gynecomastia surgery removes the glandular tissue via excision and uses liposuction to rid the chest of excess fat. Surgeons may also flatten and alter the nipple to create more masculine contours on the chest.
