Breast surgery refers to any procedure that involves altering the tissues of your breasts. There are a number of different options, each with a distinct set of pros and cons.
Augmentation is a great option if you’d like to achieve fuller, more voluminous breasts. This approach uses Allergan® implants to create larger, more rounded breasts.
If you’re happy with the size of your breasts but have experienced significant sagging over the years, a breast lift might be a good fit. This procedure lifts the breast tissue before trimming away excess skin and creating a more lifted, tighter breast shape.
A breast reduction removes excess breast tissue to create a smaller breast size. An excellent option for women with large, heavy breasts, a reduction can create a more streamlined breast shape that is also lifted and tighter.
If you’ve lost breast tissue due to cancer treatment or other forms of surgery, breast reconstruction can help create a natural-looking breast shape.
In the hands of a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Kasden, breast surgery offers the chance to make improvements that help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
If you’d love to change something about the size, shape, or positioning of your breasts, surgery can help. There is no right or wrong motivation to pursue breast surgery. That said, it’s essential that you choose to move forward with a procedure that aligns with your personal wants and needs and does not conform to anyone else's ideal.
Men can also benefit from breast surgery. Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by swollen breast tissue in males and can be treated through surgical reduction techniques.
Breast procedures are done under general anesthesia, so you rest comfortably throughout the process. Dr. Kasden begins by making incisions to access your breast tissue. He removes excess tissue and skin, lifts and reshapes the breasts, places an implant if needed, and closes the incisions.
Every effort is made to create incision lines that aren't noticeable once healed. Some procedures require repositioning the nipples, which is done carefully to preserve as much nerve function as possible.
