People come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, which makes every individual unique. Uniqueness is something to be celebrated and is what makes every individual so special, right? While individuality is what makes us unique, for some people, uniqueness can make them feel unsettled.
Breasts come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, too, which can make some women feel as if they stand out, which can make them feel self-conscious, too. These women may also feel as if their breasts make their clothing fit poorly, or that their breasts get in the way of exercising or other activities.
But, there’s no reason to continue to live with self-conscious. Dr. Peterson can help by providing a wide range of breast surgery services to help patients feel more comfortable.
Breast Surgery Options
What options are available for women who want to have breast surgery? Here are your options:
Breast implant augmentation. Breast implant surgery is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States, according to statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This procedure is ideal for women whose main goal is enlarging their breasts. This option is a surgical one and uses saline or silicone implants to enhance and enlarge the size of the breasts.
Fat transfer breast augmentation. So, what if you want bigger breasts, but you don’t want implants? There’s still an option for you. It’s called fat transfer breast augmentation, or natural breast augmentation. The fat transfer breast augmentation is minimally invasive and takes fat from one body area and injects it into the breasts. The natural breast augmentation procedure is ideal for individuals who want to increase their breasts by a full cup or less subtly.
Breast-lift. But, what if you don’t want bigger breasts? If you’re looking to correct issues caused by drooping and sagging that can happen as a result of age, changes in weight, gravity and breastfeeding, you can. If you need a little lift, the breast-lift procedure can help give you back more youthful-looking and perky breasts. The breast-lift procedure is a surgical one that removes excess skin and tissue and lifts up the breasts to a higher position on the chest.
Breast reduction. Believe it or not, many women don’t want bigger breasts. They want smaller ones! If your breasts are too large, they can cause chronic back, shoulder or neck pain and even rashes and skin irritation. The breast-reduction procedure, also known as the breast-reduction mammoplasty, involves the surgical removal of excess fat, tissue and skin.
