Women who have undergone mastectomy as part of their cancer treatment may opt for breast reconstruction surgery. This procedure can restore the natural appearance of the breast, providing support during an incredibly difficult time in a woman’s life. It can be carried out through breast implant placement, flap reconstruction, or a combination of both.
Enhance breast size and projection with a breast augmentation. Breast augmentation involves increasing the size of the breasts through placement of saline or silicone breast implants. This cosmetic surgery improves breast volume and corrects size asymmetry.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
Autologous fat transfer breast augmentation uses a patient’s own excess adipose tissue to add volume to the breasts. Aside from enhancing the volume of the breasts, it also contours trouble areas for a svelte physique.
Through liposuction, stubborn fat is removed from other parts of the body such as the thighs, lower back, or abdomen. After being processed, it is then injected into key areas of the breasts for augmentation.
Augmentation with Lift
Combination procedures like the breast augmentation with lift allow patients to achieve more comprehensive enhancement. Also called augmentation mastopexy, this breast surgery pairs a breast lift with implant- or fat-transfer-based breast augmentation. This eliminates sagging while improving breast size, shape, projection, and symmetry.
Due to genetics, breastfeeding, or the aging process, the breasts may sag and appear asymmetrical. This can also result in downward-pointing nipples. A breast lift, or mastopexy, procedure removes excess skin to tighten and raise the breasts while correcting shape asymmetries. It can also resize and reposition the nipples.
Overly large breasts can cause chronic pain in the back, neck, and shoulders, along with rashes, posture issues, and painful bra-strap indentations. To address these issues and achieve more balanced proportions, a breast reduction may be recommended.
Also known as reduction mammaplasty, a breast reduction gives women with enlarged breasts a way to improve their quality of life. By removing excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue, breast size can be reduced.
Breast revision is a procedure performed to correct issues caused by a previous breast augmentation. It can be done for cosmetic and/or health reasons, correcting problems like implant migration and rippling.
This surgery involves removing breast implants and, in certain cases, also removing the scar-tissue capsule. The breast implants may be replaced with new implants.
Because breast revision can be complex and challenging, it’s vital that patients choose the best plastic surgeon in Scottsdale for their revision procedure.
Capsular Contracture Treatment
After breast augmentation, the body recognizes the breast implant as a foreign body, thus triggering the formation of fibrous scar tissue surrounding the implant (a capsule). When the scar tissue is thicker than usual, capsular contracture can occur.
Capsular contracture is the tightening of the scar-tissue capsule over time, leading to deformed breasts or breast pain. With the help of capsular contracture treatment, we can alter or remove the thickened scar tissue, correcting this issue.
