Breast Augmentation and Lift
Also known as augmentation mastopexy, this procedure not only enhances the size of the breasts, but also repositions the areola and nipple for more youthful looking breasts.
Breasts can begin to lose volume and sag with age, weight loss and pregnancy. With a mastopexy, Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez can reshape the breast tissue, remove excess skin, reduce the size of the areola if necessary and reposition the nipple and areola to a more youthful location. This helps to create a fuller-looking bust-line and sleeker silhouette.
Patients with larger breasts often experience neck and back pain, rashes, and bra indentations. A breast reduction involves removing excess breast tissue to provide a smaller bustline. In some circumstances, this procedure may be covered by the patient’s health insurance.
Patients diagnosed with breast cancer may require a partial or full mastectomy. Breast reconstruction can then be performed at the same time (immediate) of the mastectomy or as a delayed procedure. This is determined based on the individuals needs and breast cancer treatment and recovery. Implants, tissue expanders or fat tissue from your own body can be used to reconstruct the breasts, areolas, and nipples to restore the bustline.
