One of the most frequently requested plastic surgeries, augmentation mammoplasty enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breasts.
Dr. O’Daniel first meets with the patient to gain a clear understanding of her wishes and surgery expectation. There is a wide array of implant devices available today that meet the individual needs of each patient.
He then uses sizers, digital imaging and before-and-after photographs of similarly.
The typical procedure involves placing an implant in a “sub-muscular pocket” directly under the breast tissue and chest muscle. Dr. O’Daniel takes great care to make the incision scars as inconspicuous as possible, and to achieve a balanced, symmetrical and well-proportioned outcome.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning remaining tissue and nipples. The most common incision technique is a vertical mastopexy that follows the natural contour of the breast, circling the aerola, extending downward to the crease beneath the breast.
Some patients, especially those with relatively small breasts and minimal sagging, may be candidates for modified procedures requiring less extensive incisions. Many of our breast lift patients decide to have their breasts enlarged at the same time to restore the fullness of the upper breast.
For women dissatisfied with the results of a previous breast implant surgery, Dr. O’Daniel can perform revision breast surgery, which usually involves removing and replacing a breast implant. About 40 percent of his breast surgeries are revision procedures. Reasons for the revision surgery may be physical — such as breast implant hardening or capsular contracture, implant rupture or leakage or implant shifting.
Other reasons are aesthetic — patients may be disappointed with the size, shape or asymmetry of their implants. Revisional surgery is much more complicated than initial breast augmentation surgery: It requires expert knowledge to correctly diagnose the cause of the deformity and the surgical and artistic skill to correct the problem.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for “women-like breasts.” Though rarely talked about, this condition affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men.
A chest that is flatter, firmer and better contoured is achieved through male breast reduction surgery to remove fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts. Typically a combination of liposuction and resection of breast tissue is preformed to re-shape the chest wall.
