Our experts will suggest the best solutions for you.

Breast Enlargement(Augmentation)

Breast augmentation is one of the most talked about procedure both among cosmetic patients and plastic surgeons. A cosmetically good looking breast does wonders for a patient’s life. This procedure increases the volume of the breast. This is done with the help of implants or fat injections. Breast enhancement can increase your natural size and correct sagging and volume loss associated with age, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding.

Augmentation can also be done via breast fat transfer. Excess fat is removed from one area (like the belly or thighs) via liposuction and then injected into the breasts. In some cases, implants are paired with fat transfer because the fat can help the implant sit more naturally.

Procedure

Surgery time depends on the type of procedure (implant vs fat). It also depends upon the amount of augmentation needed. Typically the procedure lasts 2-3 hours. The procedure is done under general anesthesia.

This procedure is typically performed with breast implants. They’re available in a range of diameters, volumes, and projections (how far it projects from the chest wall), and your surgeon can suggest a size that’s most appropriate for your body and goals. These flexible devices filled with silicone gel or saline (saltwater) are inserted via an incision around the nipples (per areolar), under the breasts (in the inframammary fold), or in the armpit (Trans axillary) and then placed under or over the pectoral muscle.

Augmentation can also be done via breast fat transfer. Excess fat is removed from one area (like the belly or thighs) via liposuction and then injected into the breasts. In some cases, implants are paired with fat transfer because the fat can help the implant sit more naturally.

Recovery

Pain can last for up to five days, with some soreness, swelling, bruising, and tightness lingering for a few weeks. Most patients are allowed to return to work within one week of surgery. Discomfort after surgery is treated with oral analgesic. While complications are rare, you can minimize potential problems by carefully following the after-care directions given at the time of discharge.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure that helps reduce the size of a woman’s breasts. A plastic surgeon will remove extra fat, tissue, and skin through cuts on the undersides of both breasts. Breast reduction is an outpatient procedure that generally doesn’t have many complications.

Breast reduction surgery is an operation to remove extra fat, tissue, and skin from your breasts. If you have large breasts that are out of proportion to the rest of your body and causing neck pain, back pain, or other symptoms, you may be considering breast reduction surgery.

Procedure

Before a breast reduction procedure, your doctor will perform a routine breast exam to determine if you’re a candidate for the surgery. You may also need a mammogram or other lab tests to ensure you’re in good health. You and your doctor will need to decide whether or not to use general anesthesia during the surgery, as some patients do fine with local anesthesia.

On the day of your surgery, you’ll probably have to avoid food and water in the hours leading up to the procedure. Your doctor will provide specific instructions.

After administering anesthesia, the surgeon will make an incision starting at your areola (the pigmented area around the nipple) and continuing down to the underside of your breast. They’ll remove fatty tissue and skin to reduce the size of each breast. The surgeon is often able to leave the nipple in place, but, in some cases, they may need to reposition it.

Recovery

While you may return home from the hospital on the same day as the surgery, you’ll need plenty of time for rest and recuperation. Be careful to avoid any movement that would cause muscle strain for several weeks after surgery. Don’t lift heavy groceries or anything over 5 kgs.

Your breasts will be sore and probably painful to the touch. With pain medication, you should be able to manage the healing process better. You may also have symptoms like numbness, itching, or general tiredness.

Based on how quickly you recover, your doctor should be able to tell you when you can return to normal activities like work, exercise, or driving.

Breast Lift

A breast raise, additionally referred to as a reconstructive surgery, could be a procedure to boost and reshape lax breasts. As ladies age, their skin snap tends to decrease, which may cause the breasts to lose their shape and firmness. Breast raise procedures elevate women’s breasts and provides them a younger look.

General Procedure

A breast lift addresses sagging and uneven breasts, decreased breast volume and drooping nipples and stretched areolas, recreating a youthful shape and lift to your breasts. If there is too little or too much breast volume, a breast augmentation or breast reduction might be recommended in addition to a lift. Every year, thousands of women undergo successful breast-lift surgery, experience no major problems and are pleased with the results.

Procedure

A mastopexy is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation in a hospital, free standing surgical center or surgeon’s office equipped with a surgical suite. Different techniques for removing breast skin and reshaping the breast determine the location of the incisions and resulting scars. Your surgeon will select a technique based on your breast size and shape, areola size and position, degree of breast sagging, skin quality and elasticity and how much extra skin you have.

NIPPLE & AREOLA CORRECTION

Cosmetic surgery to the nipple areolar complex (NAC) includes both nipple and areola reduction. In general, any surgery done on a native NAC can affect a woman’s ability to breastfeed, will leave scars (although often subtle), and can alter the sensitivity and feeling in the NAC.

Your areolas are the pigmented areas surrounding your nipples. Like breasts, areolas vary widely in size, color, and shape. It’s perfectly normal to have large or differently sized areolas. If you’re uncomfortable with the size of your areolas, reduction is possible. Areola reduction surgery is a relatively simple procedure that can reduce the diameter of one or both of your areolas. It can be performed on its own, or together with a breast lift, a breast reduction, or breast augmentation.

Procedure

The surgery takes about an hour when it’s performed alone. First, you’ll be given local anesthesia, possibly with IV sedation, to ensure that you’ll stay deeply relaxed throughout your procedure. Your surgeon will make an incision along the perimeter of both your current and new areolae, carefully removing the donut-shaped piece of excess tissue. They’ll secure your smaller areola with a permanent suture inside your breast tissue and close the incisions with sutures, which may be dissolvable. Then they’ll bandage the area, and you may be placed in a surgical bra.

Recovery

If the procedure was done under local anesthesia, you’ll be able to go home very soon after. If you received general anesthesia because your procedure was combined with other breast surgery, you’ll be monitored for a few hours in a recovery room before being released to a friend or family member who can take you home. Your surgeon will give you instructions on how to gently clean your incisions to reduce the risk of infection. They may also ask you to wear your surgical bra or sports bra for the first few weeks, too, to protect your areolae and position your nipples for optimal healing, in addition to protecting the area. During the first week of your healing process, you’ll need to sleep on your back or a wedge backrest so you don’t injure or put too much strain on your chest. After a week, your provider will remove any non-dissolvable sutures at a follow-up appointment, where they’ll also check on how your healing process is going. Avoid exercise or other strenuous activity, for at least two and ideally three weeks. At that point, you should be able to resume your normal activities.

SCARLESS REMOVAL OF BREAST LUMP

Breast lumps are very common; most women will experience one or more breast lumps at some stage of their lives. Majority of the Breast Lumps are Benign (non-cancerous) but require proper evaluation. Fibro adenoma is common cause for a lump in young women, often between the ages of 15-30. Fibro adenomas probably arise due to hormonal changes in the breast. They are usually harmless and painless, but should be carefully evaluated and investigated. Once a lump has been shown to be definitely a fibro adenoma, it is safe to live under strict supervision and if it does not disappear then surgery is the answer. The final cosmetic appearance is important after any breast surgery, particularly so after the removal of benign breast lumps, as their removal on occasions may not be absolutely medically essential.

Procedure

Before surgery, you’ll change into a hospital gown and be given anesthesia. If local anesthesia is used, you may be given a sedative to relax during the breast lump removal. If you’re given general anesthesia, you’ll be in a painless sleep during the entire procedure. Many doctors recommend removing fibro adenomas, especially if they keep growing or change the shape of the breast. Traditionally these lumps are treated by general surgeons who remove the lumps through direct incisions on the breast lump. These leave behind undesirable ugly scars. Surgeon remove Fibro adenoma by a small per areolar incision this, leaves almost no visible scarring on your breast. Multiple lumps can be removed through this single incision.

Recovery

After the procedure, you’ll go to the recovery room. Your vital signs will be monitored while you wake up from the anesthesia. When you wake up, you can expect some pain in the incision area. You’ll be given medication for the pain. In the weeks following surgery, you’ll need to restrict your activities. It takes time to heal. It’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions for care after surgery. You will need to take care of the incision at home. The stitches may dissolve on their own or your doctor will remove them during a follow-up appointment. If radiation therapy is necessary, it typically starts within a few weeks of a lumpectomy procedure.

MALE BREAST CORRECTION

Gynecomastia is a fairly common condition in men and adolescent boys where the breast tissue is abnormally large. In the vast majority of cases, gynecomastia is not a serious problem and often associated with excess subcutaneous fat and skin. However, it may be psychologically difficult to cope with and can affect self-esteem. Fortunately, this condition can be effectively treated by surgical removal of excess breast tissue, liposuction of excess subcutaneous fat, and occasional removal of excess skin.

Procedure

Scars resulting from gynecomastia surgery vary, depending on the amount of breast tissue you have and the elasticity of your skin. Even those who have larger breasts and tend to get larger scars are usually quite satisfied with the results. The procedure involves day surgery with a general anesthetic. You will be able to go home a couple of hours after the anesthetic wears off but should have someone drive you home. Parts of this procedure may be covered by your health insurance; however, for many patients, this is considered a private or cosmetic procedure. In cases where liposuction alone can provide the desired results, the liposuction cannulas can be inserted through tiny incisions along the edge of the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) or discretely on the lateral chest. When surgical excision is necessary, our plastic surgeons create a slightly longer incision around the edge of the areola. The incisions are placed such that the resulting scars blend in with the natural transition from areola to chest skin; the scarring is usually quite inconspicuous.

Recovery

If you have a very physical job, we recommend taking 4 weeks off. If your job is fairly sedentary or you are a student, you may return to it as early as one week after surgery. You need to avoid activities that may increase your blood pressure, such as running or working out, until at least 4-6 weeks after surgery.
