Breast Augmentation & Enhancements

breast augmentation and enhancements

For women who are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or fullness of their breasts, breast enhancements can dramatically transform your appearance, leaving you with a youthful silhouette. With numerous breast augmentation and enhancement options available, such as type and size of implant, position of incision, or whether an augmentation mastoplexy (breast lift and augmentation) is necessary, Dr. Adibfar will help you make the decisions you need in order to obtain the results you want through these breast augmentation options and breast enhancements.

Breast Augmentation
Increasing the fullness, volume, and aiding in the overall balance and symmetry of the body, Dr. Adibfar’s breast augmentation services will leave you feeling confident. Breast augmentation procedures start with a consultation. During your consultation, the differences between non-cohesive silicone gel-filled, saline-filled and cohesive silicone gel implants, as well as different implant placement options and incision locations, will be discussed in detail with you by Dr. Adibfar. Though each type of breast implant, incision location, and implant placement, comes with their own benefits and drawbacks, in order to satisfy your questions, options, and ultimately give you the desired end result, together the two of you can decide which option will meet your aesthetic goals.

Regardless of the placement of the breast implant, an incision is made that allows access to the breast, where then the implant is centred below the nipple. The average surgery time for breast augmentation is one hour, with the ability to return to work within three to seven days.

A complete recovery time of 1-2 weeks is necessary after breast augmentation surgery. Swelling, bruising, discomfort, and a firmer feeling in the breast are to be expected after surgery, but will vary according to the patient and the implant method chosen. In the rare event that the natural lining that forms around the implant causes a change in appearance or discomfort, further surgical options can be discussed.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Breast enhancements can be chosen for many different reasons. Age, pregnancy, nursing and gravity can all have drastic effects on your breasts. In order to reverse the effects of time, Dr. Adifbar offers his patients the ability to regain the youthful perkiness they once had. A breast lift, also known as a mastoplexy, works to raise and reshape sagging breasts through three different procedures. Each respective procedure is based on the degree of sagging and ultimately, the type of incision that will be made.
Breast Lift with Implants
For those who desire to repair sagging breasts but would like to restore volume and fullness as well, Dr. Adibfar can combine both the breast augmentation procedure and breast lift procedure to give you the breasts you desire. These breast enhancements can help give you the results you want. In this procedure, as with breast augmentation, Dr. Adibfar will discuss the various implant options available in relation to your desired end results. Likewise, the degree of breast lift necessary to meet your end goals will also be discussed.

Depending on the desired results and the procedure techniques chosen, a recovery time of 1-2 weeks is needed after the augmentation and lift surgery. As with the augmentation and mastoplexy procedures alone, expect bruising , discomfort, swelling and firmness to the breasts.

Breast Reduction
Breast enhancements for a better you. Pain, discomfort, insecurities and asymmetry are a few of the reasons as to why many women find a breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, necessary. Reducing the size of large breasts by the removal of excess skin and tissue, Dr. Adibfar will work to leave you with the confidence, comfort and symmetry you desire.

Depending on the degree of size reduction required, Dr. Adibfar will make an incision in one of three methods, to which then he will lift, reshape ad resize the breast. In this procedure a breast lift is necessary in order to alleviate any drooping and enhance the shape of the breast.

Patients can typically return to work a week after their procedure, though recovery precautions are necessary up to six weeks post surgery.

Nipple Inversion Correction
Many women and men are born with inverted nipples, or develop them overtime due to the shortening of fibrous tissue and milk ducts in the nipple as a result of inflammation. Varying in degrees, from merely a shy nipple that only externalizes when cold, to one that stubbornly remains inverted due to scarring or severe tissue constriction, Dr. Adibfar will discuss whether the nipple inversion correction is necessary with you.

A thirty minute procedure, Dr. Adibfar will make a minimal incision in the areola while the nipple is being manually held in the out position. In doing this, the fibrous tissue will be merely stretched. Dissolving sutures will then be placed below the nipple to hold the desired “out” position. This method keeps the patient’s milk ducts intact, allowing for women to breastfeed in the future.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
A condition that affects the self-esteem of a great portion of the male population, male breasts (or gynecomastia) can be resolved through liposuction with a very minimal recovery time. During the surgery, small incisions will be made, in which then excess fat, skin, and tissue will be removed.
