Breast Surgery Q & A
What types of breast surgery are available?
The Center for Plastic Surgery and Med Spa provides a variety of different types of breast surgery.
A breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure to enhance breast shape and size. Dr. Bouzaglou carefully places breast implants under your chest muscles or breast tissue. She discusses surgical techniques and explains the specific types of implants: smooth saline or silicon.
Breast reduction is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, skin, and glandular tissue to reduce the size of your breasts. This procedure can have both cosmetic and medical benefits for many women.
A breast lift is a surgical procedure to restore a perkier and firmer shape to sagging breasts. Dr. Bouzaglou removes excess, stretched skin, reshapes the breast tissue, and raises the nipple and areola into a more forward and elevated position.
Dr. Bouzaglou can perform a breast reconstruction to restore the shape, symmetry, size, and appearance of one or both breasts, typically following a mastectomy, lumpectomy, or congenital deformities.
Implant-based reconstruction uses breast implants to create a new breast mound. Flap or autologous reconstruction involves using your own tissue from another part of your body to help form a new breast.
Fat transfer breast augmentation
Essentially uses liposuction to take fat from other parts of your body and inject it into your breasts. This is a breast augmentation option for women who are looking for a relatively small increase in breast size and would prefer natural results.
Why would I choose breast surgery?
You might choose breast surgery for several reasons, such as to:
- Enhance the size or shape of your breasts
- Reduce the size of your breasts
- Reconstruct your breasts following certain medical conditions or procedures
- Lift your breasts to a more elevated position
No matter your reasons, Dr. Bouzaglou is here to help, and she spends ample time during your personal consultation answering your questions and discussing your concerns. She explains your breast surgery procedure in detail, so you feel more prepared and know what to expect.
What are the benefits of breast surgery?
The Center for Plastic Surgery and Med Spa provides breast surgery due to the many benefits. For example, a breast augmentation can enhance your appearance if you feel your breasts are too small or that one of your breasts is noticeably smaller than the other.
Many women choose a breast reduction to find relief from shoulder or back pain due to heavy breasts. Large breasts and the associated discomfort can also get in the way of certain physical activities.
Disproportionately large breasts can also cause both emotional and physical distress for many women.
Breast surgery can improve your self-confidence and quality of life and address cosmetic concerns that might have been bothering you for some time.
