Understanding Breast Procedures and Which One is Right For You

Many patients considering breast surgery find selecting a procedure challenging. Which one is right for you? Understanding the various types of breast surgery can help you prepare and make an educated decision with the help of your plastic surgeon. Breast surgery doesn’t just enhance the size and shape of your breasts, but it can also give you the confidence you deserve by creating a bustline that complements your body and desired aesthetics.

Understanding Breast Surgery & Who Gets It

Cosmetic breast surgery seeks to alter the size, shape, and position of the breasts. People get breast surgery for a variety of reasons, including to add volume, lift, and improve the appearance of their breasts. In some cases, people seek breast surgeries to reduce the size of their breasts for greater comfort and overall well-being.

What Are the Types of Breast Surgery?

With the different types of breast surgery available, it can be difficult to know which one will give you the results you’re looking for. That’s where Dr. Sweat and his expertise come in. Scheduling a consultation appointment at J. Sweat Plastic Surgery will help you determine the right breast surgery to meet your needs and aesthetic goals.

Some of the breast surgeries we offer include:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is the most popular breast surgery procedure. The procedure increases the size of the breast through implants filled with saline or silicone. In some cases, patients opt to increase their breast size with implanted autologous fat. If breast augmentation is right for you, Dr. Sweat will help you determine the type of breast augmentation needed to achieve the results you’re looking for.

Breast Lift

As people age, go through pregnancy, or lose weight, their breast tissue can begin to sag. For a breast lift, Dr. Sweat will make a small incision and tighten the existing breast tissue for a lifted and more youthful appearance.

Breast Augmentation & Lift

Some patients need a combination of a breast augmentation and a lift. Sagging breasts that have lost volume can look fuller, rounder, and more youthful after an augmentation and lift. With these two procedures, you can achieve a  complete breast makeover!

Breast Revision

After augmentation, some patients come back in later years for breast revision surgeries to change the size, position, and shape of the augmented breasts. This can be done by moving the implant to the right position, adding silicone or saline to the implant for a greater enhancement, or removing and replacing the implant altogether.

Breast Reduction

Overly large breasts can cause pain in the shoulder, neck, and back and can even lead to poor posture. A breast reduction procedure removes excessive breast tissue and makes the breasts smaller and more manageable. If you’re experiencing pain, problems fitting in clothes, or issues performing everyday activities, a breast reduction may be the perfect option for you.

Gynecomastia Surgery

When males develop unwanted breast tissue and enlarged breasts (also known as gynecomastia), it can addressed by removing the tissue with a surgical procedure. Dr. Sweat will remove the breast’s glandular tissue and use liposuction to remove any excess fat in the chest area, giving you the more masculine contours you desire.

Schedule A Consultation

If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or volume of your breasts,  breast surgery can help. To learn more about breast surgery and the right procedure for you, scheduling a consultation is a perfect first step. During your consultation, Dr. Sweat will examine your breasts and talk to you about your desired aesthetic goals. He will make sure you’re informed about all your options and help you decide which will be best to meet your needs.
