This type of breast augmentation does not require the placement of an implant, and instead uses fat that is harvested from another area of the body. A fat transfer breast augmentation has many benefits, including a very natural look and feel, and the reduction of unwanted fat located on another area of the body.
Childbirth, weight fluctuations, age, genetics, and other factors can lead to sagging of the breasts. If your breasts have lost a perky, youthful position, a breast lift in Boca Raton can restore your body appearance. The breast lift without scars forged by Dr. Becker uses an internal surgical mesh to lift and support the breasts, so they sit higher on the chest. At times a breast lift can be an alternative to implants when you just want to improve the positioning of your breasts without enlargement.
A breast lift and augmentation can be combined if your breasts sag, and you would like them to be a larger size. The lift will elevate your breasts, and implants will increase size and projection. Combining these procedures into one surgery session leads to a shorter recovery time overall, and produces a more youthful, attractive breast appearance.
If you’ve had a breast augmentation in the past, there are a few reasons why you may not have achieved the results you wanted. Misshapen or asymmetrical breasts can be caused by capsular contracture, a ruptured implant, or other failures. Breast revision surgery can alter the results of your previous procedure for medical or aesthetic reasons and restore a pleasing, rounded, plump breast appearance.
Breast cancer or trauma can result in the removal of one or both breasts. A breast reconstruction surgery after mastectomy can restore symmetry and balance to your features by first expanding the remaining skin and then inserting implants. Dr. Becker is a pioneer in breast reconstruction, and can help you avoid multiple surgeries by placing the implant at the time of the mastectomy, expanding the skin so the reconstructed breast is not painful, and then filling the implant. We urge you to find out more about your options before making a decision.
