Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)
The breast augmentation (breast implants) procedure at our Wichita, Kansas plastic surgery office is performed to increase breast size for a shapely, defined body contour. Women who are concerned about the size or shape of their breasts can experience improved self-confidence and an enhanced appearance through the breast implant procedure. Breast augmentation patients at our Wichita, Kansas practice can select an incision location based on their personal preferences and body type. The majority choose incisions in the breast crease, but we are also able to accommodate patients who request areola, endoscopic, or auxiliary incisions. Typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, breast augmentation can cause temporary side effects, including soreness, swelling, and bruising. Most patients can return to work and non-strenuous activities in one week to ten days.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
Loss of breast volume due to aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or other factors can be corrected with the breast lift procedure, which raises and reshapes the breasts for a youthful, attractive figure. After excess skin and tissues are removed, the nipple is repositioned to ensure completely natural-looking results. If the patient is also concerned about breast size, the breast lift procedure may be combined with breast implants at our Wichita, Kansas plastic surgery office. Typically performed as an out patient procedure with general anesthesia, breast lift can cause temporary side effects including swelling, bruising, numbness, and discomfort. Most patients are able to return to work and light activities in one to two weeks.
Most women who seek breast reduction at our Wichita, Kansas plastic surgery office wish to eliminate physical discomfort or self-consciousness about their appearance. Large, heavy breasts can cause back and neck pain, limit activity and clothing options, and draw unwanted attention. By removing excess fat, skin, and breast tissue, the breast reduction procedure can create a smaller bust line and more proportionate body contour. Breast reduction at our Wichita, Kansas plastic surgery office is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. Temporary side effects may include discomfort, numbness, swelling, and bruising, and most patients are able to return to non-strenuous activities in one to two weeks.
Breast reconstruction can be performed at the time of mastectomy (removal of the breast) or at a later date to help restore a woman’s sense of wholeness and well-being. Typically performed in stages, the first step involves the placement of a tissue expander under the remaining breast skin. This expander is later replaced with a permanent breast implant. Alternatively, a breast mound can be formed using tissue from the woman’s abdomen or back. The second step involves the creation of the nipple and areola for a natural-looking, balanced appearance.
