Breast Shaping Surgery
Breast enhancement in Phoenix refers to a wide variety of procedures that address a number of different problems with breast shape and size. Some of these problems are developmental (like underdeveloped breasts), while others are acquired (such as breast shrinkage after pregnancy).
There are many variables in determining the appropriate procedure including skin quality and elasticity, the degree of breast sagging, the width of the breast, the size and shape of the patient's ribcage, and the volume of the breasts. Many women also have some degree of asymmetry with regards to breast size, shape and nipple location.
Because of these multiple factors, it is important that a thorough evaluation is performed before any breast surgery. Additionally, as a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, I have many techniques available to address each unique situation.
One of the most common plastic surgery procedures I perform, breast augmentation in Phoenix, Arizona involves placement of a breast implant to increase breast volume. There are many choices involved in this surgery including the type of implant, the location of the implant (above or below the chest muscle), and the location of the incision. At the Scottsdale Center for Plastic Surgery, I have a lengthy discussion with each of my patients regarding all of these issues, and factor in their unique body dimensions to obtain the best result possible.
Breast reduction not only reduces back pain, rashes and shoulder grooving from bras, but it also helps to lift and redesign the breast into a more pleasing shape and size. There are many possible techniques that I use based on the goals of surgery, the size of a patient's breasts, and the patient's preferences.
To elevate and reshape your breasts after they have sagged from aging or pregnancy, I perform breast lift surgery (mastopexy). I also perform this surgery in young women with naturally droopy breasts. On occasion, if there is not enough preexisting breast tissue, I recommend adding a breast implant to improve overall breast volume and "perkiness".
Laser-assisted breast surgery is an elegant and safe alternative to the normal breast reduction or breast lift techniques. Laser-assisted breast augmentation uses lasers and the patient's own tissue to form an "internal bra" for additional support and lift.
Surgery of the nipples and areolas includes repair of inverted (inward pointing) nipples, correction of asymmetric areolas, and reduction of excessively large and/or "puffy" areolas. I frequently perform nipple and areola surgery alone; however I can also combine this procedure with other types of breast surgery.
Tuberous breast surgery is for breasts that have been unable to fill out properly because they have been constrained by the skin and an unusually high crease under the breast. Instead of turning into a round breast with normal cleavage, the breasts end up having a narrow, tube-like shape. At my Scottsdale, Arizona medical office, we strive to lower the inframammary fold to a normal position and create round, natural appearing breasts with appropriate cleavage.
Male breast development (gynecomastia) can occur due to hormones and certain medications, but most often the cause is unknown. Regardless of its origin, male breast development can be extremely embarrassing. I correct this problem with power assisted liposuction and, if necessary, with direct surgical removal of the abnormal breast tissue.
