Balance, Proportion & Shape
Are you wanting to increase the fullness of your breasts, improve the balance of your breast and hip contours or correct a natural breast size asymmetry? Breast augmentation, using implants or fat, may create the look you desire.
During a consultation with Dr. Manuel Gigena, FACS, you will learn more about each procedure and which will best meet your needs.
The goal of this procedure is to increase the size, shape or fullness of the breast. It may also be done to improve natural breast size asymmetry. Fat tissue or a variety of implants can be used.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Transfer
This procedure involves liposuctioning fat from other parts of a person’s body and injecting the fat into the breasts. This option works for relatively small size increases and creates natural results.
Breast Augmentation with Implants or Flaps/Tissue Expansions
Breast size is increased following reconstruction by using implants, flaps for tissue expansion. The procedure used depends on the desired look and feel, in addition to a person’s body shape and anatomy.
Breast Augmentation with Fat Grafting
Using a patient’s own fat tissue, breast shape and size are increased for a more natural look. Fat is harvested from the thighs, buttocks or stomach.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
During this procedure excess skin is removed and tissues around the breast are tightened to raise, reshape and support a new breast contour.
This procedure is completed to restore the shape, appearance, symmetry and size of one or both breasts following mastectomy, lumpectomy or trauma.
Breast Reduction (Reduction Mammaplasty)
The goal of breast reduction is to create a breast size that is in proportion with your body. This is done by removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin. Patients often experience reduced discomfort commonly associated with overly large breasts.
