Breast correction surgery refers to several procedures that might be undertaken to fix distorted breasts. It could be to address different problems of the breast such as the breast’s shape and the breast’s size. Some of the problems could be pertaining to under developed breasts and other could be acquired deformities such as post pregnancy shrinkage. Satya Skin Hair Clinic determines the appropriate form of breast correction surgery in accordance to the degree of deformity, the quality and volume of breasts, their width and size, and shape of the ribcage.
Breast Augmentation Considered as one of the most popular of all cosmetic procedures, breast augmentation is a procedure widely chosen by women who want to correct hypoplastic or sagging breasts. Post partum involution is one of the reasons for a breast augmentation procedure. It generally involves the usage of fat or breast implants to increase the size of the breasts. The procedure can help to:
- ■ Improve figure balance
- ■ Enhance projection and fullness of breasts
- ■ Improve self-confidence
Breast reduction Breast reduction surgery also known as reduction mammoplasty, the procedure is usually considered by women who have large breasts. Excess fat, skin and tissue are removed to allay discomfort due to enlarged breast size, at the same time attain a proportionate figure. Breast reduction surgery helps women with:
- ■ Chronic back and neck pain
- ■ Grooves forming on the shoulder due to the pressure from the brazer strap
- ■ Not being able to fit into the right clothing
- ■ Sleep difficulties
- ■ Confined and restricted activity
Corrective breast surgery This surgery is usually associated with distortive previous surgery – when there is a need to correct a previous surgery which the patient has already undergone. It usually helps patients:
- ■ Where an implant has shifted out of position
- ■ Who have experienced excessive scarring
- ■ With stretched skin leading to sagging and wrinkling
- ■ Experiencing breast asymmetry or drooping of breasts
Male breast correction (Gynaecomastia)
Gynaecomastia is a condition specific to boys or men with swollen breast gland tissues. This is essentially caused due to hormonal imbalances of testosterone and estrogen. Though it is not a serious problem, it is attributed to decreased testosterone levels as compared to the estrogen which is responsible for the control of female traits. Surgical interventions such as liposuction and mastectomy help patients,
- ■ To remove the excess fat by retaining the gland tissue by liposuction
- ■ To remove the breast gland tissue itself – endoscopically via mastectomy
Nipple and areola surgery- Nipple areola reconstruction is done to match the colour, size, shape and texture of the nipple to appear natural. The donor tissue for the surgery is taken from the patient’s own body to build the areola. A patient who has not undergone a nipple-sparing mastectomy can opt for nipple or areola reconstructive surgery. The nipple and areola reconstruction is also undertaken as a post-mastectomy procedure to reinstated volume and shape of the breasts.
Tuberous surgery- Tuberous breasts or tubular breasts can be a great cause for embarrassment. It is considered as a congenital anomaly that could affect both men and women. Breast implants and tissue expansions help in correcting tubular breasts. Tissue expansion imposes a controlled mechanical stretch according to colour, texture and thickness of the skin. Breast implants, more popularly, are prosthesis that can change the form, size and volume of the breasts.
Breast lifts- Breast lift surgery is also referred to as Mastopexy. It is a surgical procedure that aims at raising and firming the breasts, removing the excess skin, tightening surrounding tissue and creating a new and supportive breast contour. Conducted especially for drooping breasts, the aerola and nipple are shifted upwards on the chest wall. Sometimes breast lift surgeries are conducted in combination with breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery.
