Breast Surgery - Communicating desired outcomes with your surgeon

Enlarge, Enhance, Lift, or reduce.

What is It that you're looking for?

Breast Augmentation: 

Commonly known as a “boob job” surgery is usually performed on patients that are looking to restore or increase breast volume, achieve breast size symmetry, and enhance the shape of the breasts. Surgeons usually rely on breast implant or\and  fat transfer depending on each specific case and on the desired outcome to be achieved.  

Breast Lift - 

Is usually performed on patients that suffer from dropped breast due to pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight loss, aging or due to hereditary reasons. A breast lift procedure removes the excess skin and then tightens the surrounding skin tissue to reshape and support the new contour. Thus, helping patients by repositioning drooping nipples and stretched areolas (the dark tissue surrounding the nipple) to a more natural youthful position. 

Breast Reduction: 

Remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue or skin to achieve a more reasonable breast size that fits your figure. Many patients turn to breast reduction surgery mammoplasty to alleviate the pain of macromastia, a medical issue caused by large breasts. While others simply want to reduce their disproportionately big breasts for cosmetic and emotional issues.

Who should avoid undergoing a breast surgery?

Women who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an active infection, have malignant or premalignant breast cancer that has not been adequately treated, or are under the age of 18 are not good candidates for breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Augmentation:

You might find that breast augmentation surgery can help you address aesthetic concerns that are not only limited to breast size.
Breast Enlargement:

If you have always been on the smaller side and have finally decided to go one size or a couple bigger, or you simply believe bigger is better, breast augmentation can enlarge your breasts to fit your realistic aesthetic needs and desires.

Increase Fullness and Projection: 

If you have experienced a considerable reduction in the volume of your breasts following pregnancy, breastfeeding or weight loss, breast augmentation can achieve fullness and lift the breasts.

Enhance Breast Shape and Achieve Symmetry:  

Naturally, no two breasts are identical in shape and size, however, some patients suffer from noticeable asymmetry by which one breast could be significantly smaller than the other. If both breasts are similar in density and your doctor has ruled out any medical issue, breast augmentation can help you achieve symmetry and get a more rounded shape. Making it suitable as well for reconstructive surgery and for breasts pointing downwards.

Breast Augmentation - Comparing different implants
Breast Augmentation can enlarge the size of the breasts

Comparing Implants: Saline is water- based making it the safest while Silicone is plastic-based making it feel and look natural.

THE SALINE IMPLANT

Saline implants are made of a silicone shell filled with sterile salt water (saline) similar to the liquid used in IV (Intra- Venous injections).  It’s considered the SAFEST among other types of implants, especially that the injected liquid gets absorbed by the body in the rare case of an implant rupturing, causing no harm to the patient.

THE SILICONE IMPLANTS 

Silicone gel-filled implants offer the most natural look and feel compared to all other types. They are available in various profiles of shape and projection, allowing surgeons a greater degree of flexibility in choosing the option that best fits your body shape and personal desires.

Anatomic or gummy bear implants are another common type of silicone implants that are filled with a solid gel. The anatomic implant is mostly desired due to its tear-drop shape that mimics the natural curves of the breast.
