Breast Surgery Q & A
What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation, one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries today, increases your breast size with silicone or saline implants. Anthony N. Dardano, DO, FACS, discusses implant size and shape to help you find the ideal proportion and look for your body. It's also possible to have breast augmentation using fat transferred from another part of your body.
Breast augmentation isn't only for women who want larger breasts. It can correct breast asymmetry and restore lost volume, too. In the hands of a skilled surgeon like Dr. Dardano, breast augmentation is a highly successful and reliable procedure.
How long is breast augmentation recovery?
It can vary by patient, but most women can return to nonphysical jobs within a week of breast augmentation. For full healing, it can take around two months. Dr. Dardano gives you specific postoperative care guidelines and recommendations to help you heal fast.
What is a breast reduction?
A breast reduction is a surgery in which Dr. Dardano removes extra skin and breast tissue before reshaping the breast. If you have very large breasts, a breast reduction can create a lighter, firmer, and more proportionate appearance.
You might want a breast reduction if you have back pain, difficulty fitting into clothes, embarrassment, or other problems because of your large breast size.
What is mastopexy?
A mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a surgery in which Dr. Dardano removes extra skin and moves your breasts higher on your chest. You might want a mastopexy if your breasts sag after pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or simply from the effects of gravity.
A breast lift can address:
- Sagging and uneven breasts
- Drooping nipples and stretched areolas
- Decreased breast volume
Sometimes, mastopexy candidates have either too little or too much breast tissue. For this reason, you might need breast augmentation or reduction as well. Dr. Dardano can perform both procedures at the same time to give you ideal results.
When do I need revision breast surgery?
If you’ve had a breast augmentation, mastopexy, or breast reduction in the past and didn’t get the results you want, or if you’re experiencing issues like leaking or shifting implants, it’s time to see Dr. Dardano about revisional breast surgery. He has many years of experience in performing corrective breast surgeries and can undo the damage caused by others.
