BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast for a number of reasons:

* To enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small.

* To correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy.

* To balance a difference in breast size.

* As a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.

If you would like to increase the size of your breasts or balance differently sized breasts, breast augmentation may be the right choice. The best candidates are not only physically healthy but are also well informed about what the procedure can offer. If you maintain realistic expectations, you are likely to be pleased with the results.

By inserting an implant behind each breast or muscle, Dr. Kallman is able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes. A breast implant is a silicone shell filled with either silicone gel or a salt-water solution known as saline.

Breast augmentation surgery can be a wonderful, life-enhancing procedure. Dr. Kallman’s experience and surgical skill allow him to create results that are both beautiful and natural.

BREAST LIFT

Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breastlift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts–at least, for a time. (No surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.) Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume–for example, after pregnancy–breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.

The best candidates for mastopexy are healthy, emotionally-stable women who are realistic about what the surgery can accomplish. The best results are usually achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts. Many women seek mastopexy because pregnancy and nursing have left them with stretched skin and less volume in their breasts. However, if you’re planning to have more children, it may be a good idea to postpone your breast lift. While there are no special risks that affect future pregnancies, pregnancy is likely to stretch your breasts again and offset the results of the procedure.

BREAST REDUCTION

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight-from back and neck pain and skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders. And unusually large breasts can make a woman-or a teenage girl-feel extremely self-conscious.

Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for such women. The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.

Breast reduction is usually performed for physical relief rather than simply cosmetic improvement. Most women who have the surgery are troubled by very large, sagging breasts that restrict their activities and cause them physical discomfort.

In most cases, breast reduction isn’t performed until a woman’s breasts are fully developed; however, it can be done earlier if large breasts are causing serious physical discomfort. The best candidates are those who are mature enough to fully understand the procedure and have realistic expectations about the results. Breast reduction may interfere with the ability to breastfeed in the future, so women should weigh that factor into their decision.

Breast reduction surgery requires care, precision, and understanding. Dr. Brandon Kallman possesses all of these traits along with surgical skill, experience, and an eye for natural looking results. There are few better to entrust with your care. contact our Miami or Hollywood cosmetic surgery office today.
