Pregnancy and motherhood bring about many changes in a woman’s life. Though producing children is one of the greatest gifts, it can also physically take a major toll on your body, and specifically your breasts. Childbirth and breastfeeding can cause the skin to slowly lose its elasticity, leaving your breasts drooping and sagging. To address these concerns, I recommend a breast reduction, breast augmentation and/or a breast lift to give you more youthful, firmer, and perkier breasts. I also recommend my female patients wait until after they are finished having children before considering any kind of breast procedure as additional pregnancies can reverse your results.
Breast Reduction: During your consultation, we will discuss your personal cosmetic surgery goals, medical history, as well as take measurements, evaluate breast shape, the elasticity of the skin, and the positioning of the areola. Utilizing several surgical techniques, excess breast tissue is removed and the remaining tissue is lifted and shaped. For patients with exceptionally large breasts, I can reposition the nipple and areola to a more appropriate location on the breast to produce the most aesthetically-pleasing results.
Breast Augmentation: Breast augmentation surgery is ideal for women whose breasts have lost firmness or have shrunk in size due to childbearing and/or breastfeeding and wish to increase their overall breast size. As each patient’s aesthetic goals are different, the correct type of breast implant will be determined during your consultation, at which time your objectives are discussed, measurements are taken, and you have the opportunity to try on various implant sizes and types to determine the best fit for your body.
Breast Lift: Patients with sagging, drooping breasts that lack firmness with nipples that point downward are ideal for breast lift surgery, which restores the natural shape and proportion of the breasts. Multiple techniques are utilized when performing a breast lift and it is based on the size and shape of your breasts, the degree of sagging, as well as other factors. For minor correction to the placement of the breasts, mini breast lift surgery may also be performed. Breast lift surgery is often combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction to restore firmness and a higher breast position once they have started to sag or experience a loss of volume.
