Surgical Breast Procedures
Whether a patient wants to enlarge their breasts, lift their breasts, or do both Dr. David Altamira can help. Patients that are experiencing sagging from aging, weight changes, or pregnancy can reverse those effects through breast surgery. Surgical breast procedures offer women the option to achieve the aesthetic they have been looking for. Dr. Altamira offers three breast surgery options including breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast lift with augmentation.
Breast augmentation, also known as a breast enhancement, involves increasing the breast size. Women often seek a breast augmentation to restore lost breast volume. Dr. Altamira increases breast size with a variety of implants including silicone, saline, and gummy bear, or with a fat transfer. With implants or fat transfer, patients can expect the results of a breast augmentation to include a round breast shape, improved breast size, and better breast size symmetry.
Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that lifts and reshapes sagging breasts. By trimming excess skin and tightening the supporting tissue, patients can reverse the effects of aging and gravity. Dr. Altamira offers a range of incision types for all degrees of sagging, and hidden incisions that result in minimal scarring. After a breast lift, patients will have firmer breasts that sit higher on the chest. Additionally, Dr. Altamira can reposition and resize the nipple to further enhance the breast.
Breast Lift with Augmentation
A breast lift alone does not change breast size, therefore, it is often combined with breast augmentation. Breast lift with augmentation, or an augmentation mastopexy, is a combination procedure that lifts sagging breasts while increasing the size and enhancing the shape. The procedures are performed together so the implants, saline or silicone, are placed after the breasts have been lifted. Dr. Altamira recommends an augmentation mastopexy when sagging cannot be corrected by implants alone.
