Which Breast Surgery is Right for You?
Every woman desires proportionate and symmetrical breasts. However, many women have breasts that are too small, irregular, or out of balance to their bodies. This lowers their self-esteem and tends to make them quite self-conscious about their image. Breast surgery can boost these women’s confidence and self-esteem by making their breasts appear fuller and bringing them pretty close to their body structure.
Breast surgery is a procedure that is performed on either a female or male’s breast(s). Breast surgery is required for a variety of medical reasons, including breast cancer, non-cancerous breast lesions, and breast reduction surgery to relieve back pain. Also, there are purely aesthetic reasons, such as aspirations to have a distinctive breast size, visual appeal, or shape(s).
Breast surgery procedure is quite common. A few men have gynecomastia, a condition in which their breasts are excessively large, and they choose to have surgery to correct this condition. Men could also get breast cancer which is removed surgically. Whether it is a medical reason or aesthetic reason, consult our plastic surgeon to understand how breast surgery can help you and what changes it can bring to your life.
Types of Breast Surgery
Breast surgery can be classified into several types based on the patient’s health needs.
Breast Cancer Surgery
Once breast cancer has been identified or diagnosed, surgical treatment must be performed to remove cancer and lessen the probability of it returning. The amount of breast tissue eliminated with the tumor varies depending on the surgical method. The technique used is determined by the size of the tumor, its location, if it has spread (metastasized), and the patient’s personal preferences. Based on the size, location, or type of breast cancer you have, our surgeon may advise a particular surgical treatment for you.
This is a breast-conserving surgical procedure that removes only a fraction of the breast. To make sure that all cancer is removed, a small portion of normal tissue surrounding the bulge is also taken. This technique is the first choice for women with early-stage breast cancer and aids to verify or rule out breast cancer. It is accompanied by radiation therapy to reduce the possibility of cancer returning.
The whole breast is removed in this technique, but no lymph nodes are excluded. Simple mastectomy is most frequently used to treat breast cancer in women who are predisposed to the disease or to treat cancer that has spread to the milk glands. A nipple-sparing mastectomy, that conserves the nipple and areolar complex, is sometimes provided. Breast restoration can be done with implants or with the patient’s own tissue, typically from the abdominal area. A sentinel lymph node biopsy is also conducted in patients with early-phase invasive breast cancer.
Breast augmentation is perhaps the most prevalent form of cosmetic surgery. It is a type of surgery that enlarges and shapes your breasts. Breast implants and fat transfer are the two major types of breast augmentation. There are numerous options in these two categories depending on your preferences on how you want your breasts to feel and look. You might choose to have breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons, including altering the breast appearance, changing the breast symmetry, accounting for breast size after weight loss or childbirth, or to correct any irregularity or issues. Before deciding on breast augmentation, consult our board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the optimal procedure for you.
Breast cancer reconstructive plastic surgery is used to restore skin, breast tissue, as well as the nipple that was removed during mastectomy. The quantity of absent tissue varies depending on the type of mastectomy. Factors such as the spacing, dimensions, and position of the original tumor, as well as its closeness to the armpit, where the lymph nodes are removed, all influence the amount of tissue removed. The main objective of reconstruction is to reestablish breast symmetry. Breast reconstruction is now an option for a lot of women facing a mastectomy, thanks to advancements in plastic surgery methods that lead to positive outcomes now than ever.
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the breast. Back pain, neck pain, as well as other physical symptoms, can occur in people who have vastly disproportionate large breasts. Breast reduction can provide both physical and psychological benefits to women. Some women may want to reduce the size of their breasts to help ease physical pain or to make them appear more proportional to the rest of their body. Men also can have their breasts reduced. Men who have gynecomastia, a disorder in which male breasts are unusually enlarged, may also benefit from a breast reduction. Also known as reduction mammoplasty, this procedure involves the separation of extra fat, tissue, and skin from the breasts through incisions, liposuction, and the expulsion of other tissue.
Breast surgery can improve your health in a variety of ways, depending on your medical or cosmetic needs. A choice that is appropriate for one woman may not be good for another. This is due to the fact that the long-term implications of living without a breast or a portion of a breast affect each woman differently.
