One of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons, breast augmentation is an out patient procedure that can increase the size of your breast as well as provide some degree of lift to the nipple. The newest silicone and saline implants offer a wide array of options for patients, and Dr. Ellsworth can guide you through these choices as you discover a new confidence that often comes with this exciting procedure.
Revision Breast Augmentation
On occasion, even careful planning and excellent surgical technique can produce disappointing surgical results or unmet expectations. Revision surgery may help women who are disappointed with their results immediately following breast surgery as well as those who have seen unwelcome changes in their outcome over time. Common challenges and complications include bottoming out and stretch deformity, inferior and lateral fold malpositions, symmastia, wrinkling and rippling, and capsular contracture. Dr. Ellsworth is a leader in the use of scaffolds in revision breast surgery, allowing him control and support when reshaping breasts with longer-lasing results.
Often breast-feeding and the power of gravity can have deleterious effects on breast position. The tissue becomes “deflated” and the nipple and breast mound descends on the chest wall. Skin tightening procedures lift the breast mound as well as the nipple and areola. Occasionally patients request a larger breast size, especially after the deflating effects of breast-feeding. For many of these women, the lift and augmentation can be performed in a single procedure. Come and let Dr. Ellsworth explain which option is best and safest for you.
Perhaps one of the most satisfying procedures a plastic surgeon can perform, breast reduction surgery brings relief to thousands of women every year. Dr. Ellsworth’s breast reduction patients are among the happiest women in our practice, with significant relief in pain, social embarrassment and a renewed ability to exercise.
Many men and boys suffer from excessive tissue of the breast, which can cause significant social embarrassment. Each patient’s unique problem, however, requires thought as there are many different types of procedures to consider. Dr. Ellsworth is experienced in the newest techniques including both excisional lifts as well as ultrasonic liposuction to give you the best result possible.
