Breast augmentation is the most popular type of breast surgery. It increases the size of the breasts and creates a pleasing shape and overall appearance. Many women choose to have breast augmentation to restore volume to their breasts that was lost after pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
You can customize your breast surgery by choosing the type and size of your breast implants as well as where you want them positioned and where you would like the incision placed. Dr. Kofkoff will discuss each option with you and help you decide which options will give you the appearance you desire.
The breasts can sag and lose their shape due to pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight loss, aging, or the way the breasts developed. Any of these causes can negatively affect your overall appearance. A breast lift is a breast surgery that reverses these effects and creates a more pleasing and youthful appearance.
During the breast lift procedure, the excess skin causing the breasts to sag is removed and the nipples are repositioned on the breasts. The breasts are placed higher on the chest in a more youthful and perky position. The breast lift procedure may be combined with breast augmentation to give the breasts a fuller and more youthful appearance.
A breast reduction creates a more proportional and harmonious appearance by altering the size and the weight of the breasts. Overly large breasts have the potential of causing back pain and general discomfort. Clothing choices are limited and certain activities can be difficult. A breast reduction surgery will give you relief from the discomfort large breasts can cause.
Breast Surgery Correction
Women who are not satisfied with their previous breast surgery results can undergo breast surgery correction, also called revision breast surgery, to improve the appearance of their breasts. There are many different reasons that may lead you to choose breast surgery correction. Some reasons are cosmetic while other reasons are due to other types of problems.
As with every type of surgery, there are possible complications that can develop after the procedure. Significant complications are unusual and your risk of a complication is greatly lowered with the experience and skill of Dr. Kofkoff. You may choose breast surgery correction after another breast surgeon has performed your breast surgery. Dr. Kofkoff will discuss your breast surgery correction needs with you in a confidential breast surgery consultation in St. Louis.
Possible reasons to undergo breast surgery correction include:
- Size of the breast implant is too small or too large
- Wrinkling of the implant
- Improper positioning of the implant
- Capsular contracture developed (scar tissue around the implant)
- Implant leakage
