Breast augmentation is usually done to balance a difference in size, to improve body contour, or as a reconstructive technique following surgery. Incisions are made to keep scars as inconspicuous as possible, in the breast crease, around the nipple, or in the armpit. Breast tissue and skin is lifted to create a pocket for each implant. The implant may be inserted directly under the tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. After surgery, breasts appear fuller and more natural in tone and contour. Scars will fade with time. Other breast surgery procedures offered include breast lift surgery, reduction and reconstruction.
Women may have liposuction performed under the chin, on their hips, thighs, and stomach, and in the under arm and breast area. For men, common sites include under the chin and around the waist. Liposuction may also be used in the reduction of enlarged male breasts, a condition known as gynecomastia. Healthy, normal-weight people with elastic skin and pockets of excess fat are good candidates for surgery. The best candidates for liposuction are of normal weight with localized areas of excess fat–for example, in the buttocks, hips, and thighs. Other body contouring procedures offered include tummy tuck surgery. Contact us today.
