At MIA we take great care to help you achieve the most natural looking breast with the least invasive methods. We have extensive experience in breast enhancement using a variety of breast implants from Mentor and Natrelle and also using your own natural adipose tissue. This includes the latest in biocellular (stem/stromal cells/PRP) treatment to ensure the best and safest result for your breast augmentation.
Our breast lifts and reductions are done using minimally invasive techniques to ensure that you achieve the look you want with the shortest downtime and as minimal scars possible.
Breast lift, or Mastopexy, is designed to recreate the appearance of firm and more youthful breasts. Whether from childbirth and breastfeeding, changes in weight, gravity, or the natural aging process, a woman’s breasts will change over time. These factors can result in sagging breasts losing their elasticity and firmness, a condition also known as ptosis. Depending on the specific problems to be addressed, a breast lift procedure may consist of one or multiple discrete procedures: Tighten skin to eliminate the sagging effect, reduce the size of the areola to keep them in proportion to the newly shaped breasts, and move the nipple higher up on the breast so it is approximately even with the lower crease of the breast. In some cases, when there has been a significant loss of breast tissue, a breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with the breast lift.
There are several common techniques that may be utilized during a breast reduction procedure. The size and shape of your breasts, areola size, and the desired reduction amount of the patient are factors that will help your surgeon determine the best technique for you. Incisions may be made in one of three ways: Around the areola, vertically downward from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast, and horizontal beneath the breast and follow the natural curve of the breast crease. After the surgeon has removed excess breast tissue, fat/skin, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in large breasts usually has been stretched, also is reduced in size. Skin that was formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast. Your surgeon will discuss beforehand with you which method to utilize for your desired outcome and individual circumstance.
Breast reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a breast to near normal shape, appearance and size. Following a mastectomy and depending on the individual patient’s circumstances – such as whether radiation therapy is required as a part of the treatment protocol – saline-filled or silicone gel implants or tissue from other areas of the body (also known as an “autologous reconstruction”) – and sometimes a combination of the two – may be used. Nipple and Areola Reconstruction is often required, as well, and can be performed alongside or following breast reconstruction.
