Breast Procedures Manhattan
Breast augmentation, also known as “augmentation mammaplasty,” is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Used to increase size, enhance the shape, and provide better symmetry of the breasts, this surgery is popular among women who are underdeveloped, or have lost volume due to pregnancy/breastfeeding, aging, or weight loss. In addition to cosmetic reasons, breast implants may also be used for reconstructive purposes.
To improve upon a patient’s womanly features, saline or silicone-gel filled breast implants are inserted into the breast, just under the chest muscle. Incision sites include the crease at the bottom of the breast, through the areola, or the underarm. Scars fade over time, and become hardly noticeable.
The goal of breast enlargement surgery is to produce breasts that look natural for the patient. By doing so, she can often experience an improved appearance, better-fitting clothing, and a potential boost in self-esteem. For “fuller” and shapelier breasts, consider breast augmentation with Dr. Sharon Giese.
Sometimes gravity, pregnancy, and breast feeding is too much for just a breast lift. If you have lost volume and don’t have enough to fill your brassieres, an implant and a lift may be necessary to achieve the look you desire. Dr. Sharon Giese specializes in this type of simultaneous implant and lift surgery. As one of the more complicated breast surgery combinations, let Dr. Giese’s expertise guide you though the decision.
Over time, the effects of gravity along with the loss of the skin’s natural elasticity begins to have an effect on the appearance of a woman’s breasts. These factors, combined with pregnancies and nursing will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness. A breastlift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. Dr. Giese performs a special “internal bra” technique, re-arranging the breast tissue under the skin, thereby requiring little or no brassiere support.
The “rock-in-the-sock” is the dreaded consequence of putting a big implant in to ‘inflate’ a ‘saggy’ breast. Left with a saggy breast and implant the solution devised by Dr. Giese alone will solve your problem. The chest muscle is used to create a strong internal sling, which always is pulling the implant up and in (instead of down and out by gravity). If your implant is low or falls to the side, this is the procedure for you.
Large, pendulous breasts may cause a woman to potentially experience various medical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breast tissue. Problems with posture, skeletal deformities, back and neck pain, skin irritations and breathing problems are common with this condition. Bra straps often leave indentations in the shoulder area. Many women, especially teenage girls, are very self-conscious if they have unusually large breasts. Breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) removes fat, glandular tissue, and excessive skin, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are better-shaped in proportion to the rest of the body.
Most women with inverted nipples have ducts intact, they are just tight. Breast feeding is generally possible though difficult. Surgery to change inverted nipples to those that protrude is a simple office procedure done with local anesthesia. It is done for cosmetic reasons. Women love it but cannot breast feed afterward.
