Breast augmentation is one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery performed in the world. Millions of women have turned to augmentation mammoplasty to enhance or change the size, shape and placement of their breasts. Through several techniques, Dr. Nesmith can enhance the appearance of your breasts so that you can be more comfortable and confident. Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center offers several types of implants, such as saline-filled, silicone gel-filled, and cohesive gel implants, as well as fat grafting procedures. There are many factors to account for in breast augmentation procedures, so it’s very important to discuss your expectations and goals with Dr. Nesmith so that he can recommend the proper implant, size, shape, placement and procedure that will help you achieve the look that you most desire.
Breast reconstruction procedures are available for women who have had a mastectomy. Dr. Nesmith is very talented at achieving a natural looking breast through implants and fat grafting techniques so that your breasts are restored to their natural size and shape. We can begin the process of breast reconstruction at the time of your mastectomy, or the procedure can be delayed until you have recovered from treatments. Breast reconstruction surgery is the only type of breast surgery that we offer to women of all ages. In this difficult time, we want to help you get back to a feeling of confidence and assuredness so that you can move forward with life after treatment.
A breast lift (mastopexy) is a procedure that can lift and add firmness to breasts through the removal of excess skin and the tightening of surrounding tissue. The result is breasts that have a higher profile placement to eliminate the appearance of sagging breasts that occurs with age, weight loss and pregnancies. The size of your breasts will not change significantly with a breast lift alone. Patients who want a fuller breast may need a form of breast augmentation surgery to add tissue or implants to the existing area. For women who want to decrease the size of their breasts along with the lift, breast reduction surgery is required.
Reduction mammoplasty, or breast reduction surgery, can have several health benefits when performed correctly. Women with very large breasts in proportion to their body may experience daily pain in their necks, backs, and shoulders, and they may be forced to limit their physical activity due to the size of their breasts. Don’t let your breasts dictate your life — with breast reduction surgery, you can say goodbye to painful bra straps and irritated skin under the breast and say hello to better-fitting clothing and renewed outlook on life. Breast reduction surgery can help tighten and firm the skin around your breasts to reduce sagging and to keep your breasts from irritating your skin if they rub against your chest. Dr. Nesmith can also help correct enlarged areolas through breast reduction surgery.
Choosing to undergo breast augmentation procedures is not a decision that women take lightly. Therefore, it can be devastating when the procedure is not performed correctly, if mistakes are made, or if the final results are simply not what you had originally envisioned. Many advances have been made with breast implants over the last decade, so many women are finding out that their breasts can look and feel better with new types of implants and better implant placement. If you are dissatisfied with your breast augmentation, breast reduction, or breast lift procedure, contact Dr. Nesmith right away. No matter where you had your surgery performed, Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center can help by replacing malfunctioning implants, inserting bigger implants for a larger breast, using fat grafting techniques when applicable for a more natural looking breast, and even change the placement of the implant to above or below the chest muscles.
Tuberous Breast Syndrome
Tuberous breast deformity is a condition that causes a distortion in the shape of the breasts and areolas. This syndrome affects about five percent of women and typically progresses during puberty as the breast tissue is developed. Women who have tuberous breasts, also known as tubular breasts, experience significant levels of insecurity but there is a solution. Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center can provide you with corrective procedures to add fullness and round out the shape of your breasts.
If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your nipples, Dr. Richard Nesmith or Dr. Brad Nesmith from Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center can help. Nipple surgery is a form of plastic surgery focused on altering the appearance or shape of one or both nipples. After a thorough exam, your plastic surgeon can recommend which procedures will correct your condition including nipple repair, nipple reconstruction, nipple enhancement or nipple reduction. They can be performed along with other breast procedures or on its own.
Silicone-Gel Filled Implants
Silicone breast implants enhance the size and shape of breasts through augmentation. Patients who undergo breast augmentation with silicone-gel filled implants often strive to improve their profile and increase their confidence by altering their breast shape or size. Many patients choose silicone implants after experiencing changes to their natural breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss, or illness. Breast augmentation procedures can also be used to correct asymmetrical breasts, while some patients simply desire fuller breasts. Board-certified plastic surgeons with Nesmith Plastic Surgery Center work one-on-one with each patient and consult them about the best choice of silicone implants to achieve their desired look and cosmetic goals.
