Seriously Beautiful Breasts
Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. Some women inherently dislike their natural breast shape or size, while others notice unwanted changes to their breasts after pregnancy or nursing.
Dr. Mark H. Schwartz offers a range of breast surgery procedures to improve the size, shape and position of the breasts, including breast augmentation, breast lift with and without implants, breast reduction and revisional breast surgery.
More women in the United States have breast augmentation than any other plastic surgery procedure. Breast augmentation adds volume and fullness to the breasts to produce feminine-looking cleavage and boost a woman’s confidence. It is typically embraced by women with naturally small or asymmetrical breasts, or breasts that have “deflated” from pregnancy, nursing or the natural aging process.
Implants vary in filling material, size, shape, texture and projection. They are placed through small incisions made in the breast crease, at the edge of the areola or in the underarm. Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Schwartz works with each patient to select the best implant and surgical approach to deliver the look and feel that she desires.
Breast Augmentation with Lift
Breast augmentation with lift is a popular combination procedure that achieves several goals:
• Increases breast volume
• Improves breast contour
• Elevates the breasts to a more aesthetically appealing position
• Restores the position of the nipple-areola complex
This combination operation is ideal for women who are unhappy with the size, shape and position of their breasts after pregnancy and breast-feeding, or who have experienced substantial sagging over time from weight loss and aging.
Breast lift restores saggy or droopy breasts to a more youthful-looking position on the chest wall. By removing lax breast skin and reshaping the tissue into a firmer and perkier mound, Dr. Schwartz improves the overall shape and position of the breasts.
Breast reduction offers significant relief from heavy, sagging or asymmetric breasts. By removing excess breast tissue and skin, breast reduction brings the breasts into better proportion with the rest of the body. The procedure can also improve medical, physical and psychological problems associated with extremely large breasts. Many women are able to participate in sports without pain after breast reduction surgery, and have the ability to wear clothing they once only dreamed possible.
After breast cancer treatment, reconstructive surgery can help to restore a woman’s breasts to her desired size and shape and enhance her self-confidence. As a leading breast reconstruction surgeon, Dr. Schwartz uses a variety of methods to reconstruct the breasts using silicone gel filled breast implants or autologous (the patient’s own) tissue that is taken from another area of her body, such as the belly or back. These procedures may be performed at the time of mastectomy — called Immediate Reconstruction — or after recovery from mastectomy, chemotherapy or radiation.
Inverted Nipple Correction
Some women are born with inverted nipples while others develop them during puberty or after breastfeeding. Dr. Schwartz can repair inverted nipples to produce a more natural appearance to the breasts.
