Dr. Price performs the following breast enhancement procedures that he customizes to an individual’s unique anatomy and aesthetic goals:
- Breast Implant Options. Breast implant surgery is tailored to your body and the expectations set during your consultation. One of the leading plastic surgery procedures, this form of breast enhancement seeks to achieve comfortable, rewarding, natural-looking results using appropriate saline or silicone breast implants.
- Ideal Implant. The Ideal implant brings the best of two worlds together, combining the look and feel of silicone with the safety and peace of mind achieved with saline. Dr. Price uses this structured breast implant to give you the natural look you want without concerns about the potential effects of silicone.
- Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy). Breast enhancement requires a unique approach for every patient. The breast lift may be combined with breast augmentation or performed independently as needed to refine breast shape. This technique achieves beautiful results through the careful repositioning of the breast mound into a tightened pocket of overlying skin.
- Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction). Male breasts are not as uncommon as you might think. Referred to as gynecomastia, male breast enlargement can be a persistent problem. It isn’t possible to exercise the excess fat away or sculpt a masculine chest by losing weight. If you have true gynecomastia, your surgeon can redefine your chest contours using one of a few common surgical techniques.
What is Breast Enhancement Surgery?
Breast enhancement surgery is a term used to describe the various procedures intended to improve the appearance of the breasts. Breast augmentation and breast lift procedures are the most common types of breast enhancement. Dr. Price also performs male breast reduction to improve men’s chest contours. These surgeries are most often performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Each requires a relatively short recovery period of a few weeks, and carries few risks of complications. The results of breast enhancement surgery can last many years.
What Conditions can Breast Surgery Fix?
Breast surgeries can address a number of common concerns, and even some that aren’t so well-known. Breast augmentation is most often performed to increase breast size and fill out the chest to be in proportion with the shoulders and hips. This procedure can also correct shape abnormalities, such as asymmetry or tubular breasts. Breast lift surgery, with or without breast augmentation, is performed with the objective of drawing the breast mound up higher on the chest wall. Securing tissue in a more youthful position improves projection, profile, and shape. The adjustment in position can even make the breasts look subtly larger. Please do not hesitate to contact our office at (203) 453-6635 to discuss how we can help you address your concerns about breast shape.
Am I a Candidate for Treatment?
If you are generally healthy and do not smoke, you may be a good candidate for breast enhancement. If applicable, you will be asked to quit smoking well before your surgery date to be an ideal candidate for surgery. Your first step in determining which type of breast enhancement may be most appropriate for you is to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon. The goal of this type of treatment is to augment your natural proportions. An important part of your consultation process is to ensure that you have realistic expectations of your treatment outcome based on your discussion with the surgeon.
Can I Combine Breast Procedures?
Yes. Breast augmentation and mastopexy are often combined to achieve even better results. In some cases of male breast reduction, the removal of fatty and glandular tissue is complemented by a modified breast lift. For men, this involves removing just enough loose skin to achieve a firm, sculpted appearance. Dr. Price performs a comprehensive examination of your breast tissue and skin during your consultation and uses that information to help determine if you would benefit from a combination of breast enhancement techniques.
Is Breast Surgery Only for Women?
No. Historically, breast enhancement procedures were designed around women’s desires for larger and more shapely breasts. Today, more plastic surgeons are mastering the performance of male breast reduction. In the past few years, gynecomastia surgery has become much more common as men have discovered this proven option for correcting enlarged breasts.
