Breast Augmentation Louisville
Mammoplasty, or breast augmentation, offers patients the opportunity to increase the fullness of the breasts by inserting an implant underneath chest muscles or breast tissue. Implants both increase the size of breasts as well as improve the appearance of symmetry between both breasts. A range of implant materials and sizes are offered, your surgeon will work with you to select the appropriate material, positioning and size of implant to achieve your desired results.
Breast augmentation helps increase the size of naturally small breasts, and also works to fill out bustlines that experience reduced mass due to weight loss, pregnancy, and breastfeeding. Implants work in conjunction with breast lift procedures to improve breasts that have become droopy with loss or age.
Breast Reconstruction Louisville
Women who undergo mastectomy to remove cancerous breast tissue or to prevent cancer from developing in susceptible breast tissue often find healing power in undergoing breast reconstruction surgery. There are many different approaches to breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Each patient’s need vary depending on the amount of tissue removed, the reconstruction result desired, and the over health of the patient. Mastectomy patients may elect to use implants to help reconstruct the fullness of their bustlines or, if available, they may also elect to use natural tissue from the abdomen, back, or buttocks.
Each reconstruction is completed according to the desired results of the patient. Many reconstruction patients feel that once the reconstruction surgery healing process occurs they finally reclaim their body from the cancer that impacted them. Patient’s work hand in hand with the surgeon to produce satisfying natural results. Talking to a plastic surgeon prior to mastectomy can help patients set realistic expectations whether reconstruction will occur in conjunction to mastectomy, or later on down the road after healing from the mastectomy has occurred.
