Also known as mammoplasty augmentation, breast augmentation creates naturally proportioned breast shape using implants. Breast Augmentation is not only a medical decision; it is a personal one. The perception we have of ourselves defines who we are and how we introduce ourselves to the world. Not every woman may feel the need for breast augmentation, but for many women it has afforded a state of great personal satisfaction and well being. While both friends and family can make recommendations, only you can decide if Breast Augmentation is for you.
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence, but won’t necessarily change your looks or be noticeable under clothing. Breast lifts restores firmness, curves and enhances your overall breast contour.
The best candidates for a breast lift (mastopexy) are healthy women who are realistic about what the surgery can accomplish. There are a variety of considerations to take into account when deciding to have a breast lift. Please discuss the pros and cons of this procedure with Dr. Paydar.
Breast Reduction can be performed at any age, but plastic surgeons usually recommend waiting until breast development has stopped. Childbirth and breast-feeding may affect the size and shape of your breasts. If you plan to breast feed in the future, you should discuss this with Dr. Paydar. Liposuction can be used in some full breasts to reduce the breast size with minimal scars and a rapid recovery.
You may be a good candidate for breast reduction if you have any of the following conditions:
Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts
Heavy, sagging breasts with very low nipples and areolas
Breasts that are too large in proportion to your body frame
Skin irritation beneath the breasts
Indentations in your shoulders caused by tight bra straps
Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts
Feelings of self-consciousness about the large size of your breasts
