About Breast Augmentation and Breast Reduction
Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States, with over 286,000 performed in the last year alone. Using implants to improve the size and shape of the breast, a breast augmentation consistently produces satisfied patients. Normally performed as an outpatient procedure, patients can rest and recover in the comfort of their home; returning to work after only a few days.
Dr. Chernoff has been performing breast augmentation in Indianapolis and California for almost 20 years. His artistic eye and meticulously skilled hand provides patients with the beautiful body they have always dreamed of. Dr. Chernoff provides a complimentary consultation appointment for patients to allow a chance for both the woman and physician to decide on the best size and shape implant for their individual body.
The best candidate for a breast augmentation is a woman in good health, who is experiencing underdeveloped or misshapen breasts, or who has lost volume due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or the aging process. A breast augmentation can be used in conjunction with a breast lift to raise existing breast tissue, replace any lost volume, and increase breast size. These procedures will result in a chest that is attractive with a healthier overall look. Dr. Chernoff specializes in natural looking breast augmentation, providing a chest that is appropriately proportioned to an individual woman’s body and frame size.
Women have a wide variety of choices in breast implants today. Both saline and silicone implants are safe and can provide beautiful, long-lasting results. Saline implants will provide firmer, rounder breasts, while silicone gel implants tend to look more organic and feel natural to the touch. Any number of combinations of size, type, volume, and placement can be used to provide each woman with the best results for her specific body. At the consultation appointment with Dr. Chernoff, patients will have a chance to visualize different breast sizes on their body with computer imagery and by trying on sizers.
Age, breast-feeding, and illness can contribute to sagging, drooping breasts. Large breasts are extremely heavy, which will contribute to a drooping of the tissue. A breast lift will raise the existing breast tissue up on the body, restoring a woman’s healthy, aesthetically pleasing silhouette. During a breast lift, existing tissue and muscle are lifted to a higher position, while excess skin will be excised and removed. The nipple and areola will be removed and repositioned on the breast. While a breast lift does create a scar, these will fade dramatically over time.
A breast lift is often used in combination with a breast augmentation to improve the loss of breast volume, sagging breasts, and malpositioned nipples. By combining procedures, patients can receive optimal aesthetic results. Undergoing a breast lift with breast augmentation is considered extremely safe, but it is vital to use an experienced cosmetic surgeon like Dr. Chernoff.
Breast reduction, or Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce a large chest down to a more proportionate size for an individual woman’s frame. The best candidate for a breast reduction will be a woman in good health, with heavy, sagging breasts. When the breasts are extremely large, they can cause a variety of problems such as backaches, shoulder pain, deep bra strap grooves, and even problems breathing. Women with a large chest can also experience embarrassment and reduced self-esteem. A breast reduction will create a chest that is natural looking and appropriately sized for each specific woman’s body shape. Health problems will be reduced, back pain is eliminated, and a continued sagging of the chest will be relieved.
