Large breasts can cause back and shoulder pain that can worsen over time and even interfere with physical activity. Just as importantly, large breast size can have a negative emotional effect on patients. Surgery reduces breast size by removing breast fat and tissue, as well as excess skin to creating breasts that are more in proportion to the body and more comfortable for the patient. In some cases, combination with a breast lift is needed to achieve the desired result.
Breast augmentation increases breast size using fat transfer or implants. This procedure restores lost volume following pregnancy, weight loss, or due to aging. In addition to changing the size of the breast, shape, symmetry, and breast position can also be addressed. A breast lift may also be needed to lift sagging tissue and to fully correct the position of the breast.
FAT TRANSFER TO BREAST
Fat transfer uses fat harvested during liposuction to improve the shape and volume of the breast. Innovative technologies in this area continue to develop, and new fat sizing and processing devices have led to improved outcomes.
Fat transfer is minimally invasive and results are both natural looking and durable.
To correct descent of the breasts and restore a natural and more balanced position and shape, a breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the tissue so that the shape and contour of the breast is supported as the breast is repositioned. For some patients, this procedure is combined with either breast augmentation or breast reduction.
Breast reduction can treat gynecomastia, or enlarged male breasts, a condition common among males. This procedure reduces the chest through the removal of excess fat and tissue, restoring a more masculine appearance by flattening and firming the chest. Results often improve confidence and can reduce pain associated with physical activity.
