Every year thousands of women choose to surgically enhance their figure through breast augmentation. Many are choosing to return to their youthful shape, while others are gaining the figure they have always wanted. Meadows Surgical Arts is pleased to offer breast augmentation to our clients who are looking to gain confidence and pride in their figure.
There are times when we look in the mirror and notice certain aspects about our body that we'd like to change. Many women may be generally happy with the way they look, but there may be one specific area they'd like to alter-their breasts. Some don't like the fact that their breasts are too small or are out of proportion with the rest of their body. Others might have breasts that sag or look "deflated".
If you fall into one of these categories, and you're ready to make a significant change in the appearance of your breasts then a visit to Dr. Meadows to discuss cosmetic breast surgery/augmentation may be the first step towards reaching your desired goal.
An important part of the preoperative consultation with Dr. Meadows includes a determination of the desired breast size and shape. Although many different breast contours can be achieved, a decision must be made that coincides with total body size, shape and the existing breast tissue. In performing breast augmentation, Dr. Meadows usually prefers to place the implants beneath the chest wall muscle. This technique usually results in softer and more natural looking breasts both standing and lying down. This placement also decreases the possibility of unnaturally firm and painful breasts while also improving the reliability of mammograms.
During the consultation Dr. Meadows may determine that you may need a breast lift or reshaping to achieve your goals. This procedure repositions or "lifts" breasts that sag. This sagging usually results from pregnancy and nursing or a large weight gain or loss. These conditions cause the amount of breast tissue to decrease, leaving a skin envelope that is too large, and the remaining breast tissue sags within the larger skin envelope
Understanding the Procedure
At the Meadows Surgical Arts, breast surgery is carried out under general anesthesia and is performed at our AAAHC accredited surgical facility. Prior to surgery, your breasts are carefully marked to indicate where incisions are to be made. The placement of these incisions depends upon the type of breast surgery that is being performed as well as the technique that will achieve the best result. Every effort is made to reduce the length of scars and to make them as inconspicuous as possible.
Women with very large, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems, caused by the excessive weight, from back and neck pain or skin irritation to skeletal deformities and breathing problems. Bra straps may leave indentations in women's shoulders. Additionally, unusually large breasts can make a woman, or teenage girl, feel extremely self-conscious. Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for such women.
If you're considering breast reduction, Dr. Meadows can provide you specific information on how he would proceed in your particular situation.
Understanding the Procedure
The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to achieve the look of smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion to the rest of the body.
