BREAST SURGERY

The breasts are a uniquely feminine body feature. Women who are confident about the appearance of their breasts often have a positive self-image. Breast enhancement surgery can help women have the breast size and shape they desire. Plastic surgery can also be helpful to men who want a more masculine chest. Attractive, natural looking results are possible when you choose an aesthetic plastic surgeon who has proper training, sufficient experience, and an artistic approach. Juan Gordillo M.D is proficient in aesthetic procedures of the breasts.

Including:

Breast Augmentation

Improves the size and appearance of the breasts.

Procedure

Breast augmentation, also called breast enlargement, improves the size and appearance of the breasts by implanting silicone breast implants either under or over the chest muscle, thus producing a cosmetic enhancement.

What breast augmentation surgery won’t do

Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to be lifted due to sagging, breast lift may be required in conjunction with breast augmentation.

Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation.

Length

This procedure takes approximately one or one and a half hours.

Anesthesia

A general anesthesia is administrated and the patient is completely asleep.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Either inpatient or outpatient depending on the preference of the surgeon.

Possible Side Effects

Mild, temporary discomfort, mild to moderate swelling, a change in nipple sensation (either increased or decreased), and temporary bruising. Breasts may be sensitive to stimulation for a few weeks.

Risks

Either one breast implant or both may need to be removed and/or replaced to treat problems including: deflation, implant rupture, the formation of scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture), which may cause the breast to feel tight or hard, bleeding and/or infection. Other risks are an increase or decrease in sensitivity of the nipples or breast skin, which occasionally may be permanent.

Recovery

The patient can return to work within a few days. She should avoid any physical contact with her breasts (excluding her bra) for approximately three to four weeks. Scars should fade and flatten anywhere from three months to two years after surgery, depending upon how the individual patient heals.

Results

The outcome varies from patient to patient. However the overall effect is enhancement of breast size for improved appearance.

Breast Lift

Improves breast shape. raises the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well.
A breast lift can rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful and uplifted.
A woman’s breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes and loss of skin elasticity can result from:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity

Procedure

Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, removes excess skin in and around the breast that has been stretched during pregnancy or weight fluctuations. Breast implants may also be used in conjunction with this procedure to achieve the desired result.

Length

Approximately two to three hours.

Anesthesia

General anesthesia is administered and the patient is completely asleep.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Either is possible depending on the patient’s medical condition and the preference of the surgeon.

Possible Side Effects

Temporary bruising, swelling, some mild discomfort, numbness, and dry/tender breast skin.

Risks

Unfavorable scarring with keloid formations is possible. In addition skin loss, infection, unevenly positioned nipples (asymmetry), and the possibility of permanent loss of feeling in the nipples and/or the breasts.

Recovery
The patient can return to work within one week and may resume strenuous activities after one month. The fading of scars may take several months to one year.

Results
The outcome varies from patient to patient. Other factors that may influence results are: gravity, pregnancy, aging, and weight changes which may cause new sagging. Results may last longer or be enhanced when breast implants are inserted as part of the procedure adding support to the newly positioned breast tissue.

Breast Reduction

Reduces breast size and improves physical and emotional symptoms caused by very large breasts.

Procedure

Breast reduction surgery, also referred to as reduction mammoplasty, reduces the size and improves the shape of the breasts. Typically, women who are candidates for this procedure have physical symptoms related to the weight or shape of their breasts. These symptoms include back pain, neck pain, and bra strap grooves in the shoulders. The incisions vary based on the breast size before the operation and the final post-operative size.
An incision is made around the nipple and areola accompanied by a vertical incision below the areola with or without a horizontal incision made in the crease below the breast. Short scar techniques are frequently applicable in breast reduction surgery and allow excellent reduction of size with improved shape while limiting the extent of the incisions.
For reduction of very large breasts, in some cases the nipple and areola may need to be surgically removed and reapplied as a graft. Removing and reapplying the nipple/areola tissue will result in the loss of nipple sensation and the inability to breastfeed.

Length

The procedure usually requires two to four hours of operating time depending on the technique chosen and the size of the breasts.

Anesthesia

The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia supplemented with local anesthesia.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Depending on the size of the breasts, type of anesthesia selected, and length of the surgical procedure, patients may return home on the same day as their surgery or spend the night.

Possible Side Effects

Prolonged swelling and delayed healing.

Risks

Risks associated with breast reduction include: unfavorable scarring, loss of nipple sensation, loss of ability to breastfeed, loss of nipple and breast tissue, unsatisfactory shape, and failure to achieve aesthetic goals.

Recovery

Typically recovery requires one to two weeks. Most patients return to normal activities within that period of time. Strenuous physical activities are discouraged for three to six weeks after the surgery.

Results

Most patients who undergo a reduction mammoplasty are pleased with the size and the shape of their breasts and are delighted with the improvement and lessening of the symptoms of pain and discomfort that they experienced due to the weight of their breasts. Breast reduction makes physical activities easier and patients enjoy their new appearance and ability to wear clothing that was uncomfortable or unattractive before the surgery was performed.

Revision Breast Surgery

Improves or corrects the results of previous breast enhancement surgery.

Procedure

The more common reasons for seeking revision breast surgery are implant deflation, implant exchange (size or type), capsular contracture, implant malposition, double-bubble deformity, or a combination of these issues. When a breast implant is inserted, a scar forms around it as part of the natural healing process, called a capsule. The capsule may sometimes tighten and compress the implant creating a distorted breast shape. The goal of revision surgery is to help restore a more youthful contour and attractive appearance.

Length

One to two hours, depending on the condition to be treated.

Anesthesia

General anesthesia may be more desirable.

Inpatient/Outpatient

Either, depending on patient preference.

Possible Side Effects

Discoloration and swelling may occur initially, changes in nipple or breast sensation.

Risks

Risks include adverse reactions to anesthesia, blood accumulation that may need to be drained surgically, and infection.

Recovery

The patient should be able to return to work within four to five days depending on the type of work. Special care must be taken to be gentle with your breasts for at least one month after surgery.

Results

Depends on the patient’s breast laxity or sagginess after having had children or losing weight. Generally stable. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually alter the size and shape of virtually every woman’s breasts.
