Know Your Breast Enhancement Options!
POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2016 AT 10:44 AM by Dr. Elie Levine
For many, the term “breast enhancement” is synonymous with breast implants. While breast augmentation is a popular breast enhancement option for patients, there are a variety of procedures aimed at improving breast size, shape, and positioning to fit in with your individual profile. Patients can undergo fat grafting to provide natural-looking volume to the breasts, a breast lift to restore youthful-looking contours, breast asymmetry surgery to correct unevenness of the breasts and nipples, breast reduction to reduce overly-large breasts, and inverted nipple correction. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, breast surgeon Dr. Elie Levine provides different breast enhancement procedures to help you achieve your desired results. Know your options!
Improve Breast Size And Shape
Patients have numerous breast augmentation options to consider when looking to improve the size and shape of breasts. Breast implants can be customized to fit in with your individual body type, as well as your procedure goals. Saline, silicone gel, and gummy implants are all offered in either round or teardrop shapes to ensure natural-looking results that harmonize with your individual profile. Patients can also opt for fat grafting to provide natural-looking volume to the breasts. During your natural fat transfer procedure, fat cells are carefully collected from a donor site through liposuction—oftentimes around the abdomen, flanks or thighs. Once extracted, these fat cells are gently reinserted into the breasts to enhance contours.
Add Lift To Sagging Breasts
Breast lift surgery can lift drooping breasts to a more youthful position. Over time, breasts may begin to sag due to factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging. A breast lift can surgically remove excess skin, while also lifting drooping skin to achieve youthful, firmer-looking breasts. Incisions are carefully placed around the breasts to remain inconspicuous.
Correct Asymmetries Or Unevenness
Breast asymmetries, including differences in breast size or shape, as well as nipple asymmetries, can be corrected surgically. Your breast surgeon may utilize breast lift surgery to reposition uneven breasts, as well as breast augmentation, to enlarge a smaller bust. Fat grafting can also be utilized to add volume and symmetry. Those suffering from nipple irregularities can undergo nipple correction to achieve natural-looking, symmetrical nipples.
Reduce Breast Size
Overly-large breasts may cause aesthetic concerns, as well as physical discomfort. Breast reduction surgery is designed to reduce the size and weight of breasts, while simultaneously improving shape and aesthetics and easing tension on the back, neck, or shoulders. Surgical techniques can remove and re-drape excess breast tissue, while liposuction can gently suction small amounts of breast fat to reduce the size of breasts. Male patients can also undergo breast reduction to treat gynecomastia. During male breast reduction surgery, excess chest tissue is carefully removed and repositioned to craft a more athletic-looking chest.
Improve The Appearance Of Nipples
Inverted nipple correction can target nipples that project inward or appear flat to improve nipple symmetry. This procedure can be completed in less than 1 hour and usually requires local anesthesia—making it a very common treatment for patients looking to enhance the appearance of their nipples. During inverted nipple surgery, tiny incisions are made at the base of each nipple to release tight tissue that contributes to an inward-looking appearance. Patients can expect long-lasting improvements to the shape of their nipples after undergoing inverted nipple correction.
