Many types of breast surgery procedures are available to restore, enhance, or reduce the size and shape of your breasts. Surgery performed by a board-certified plastic surgeon may be a good option if you are unhappy with your breasts’ appearance or if they cause you daily discomfort. If you have undergone a mastectomy for breast cancer, Dr. Matthew Steele can perform breast reconstruction to help close the loop on your breast cancer and restore a sense of femininity often robbed by cancer.
Most types of breast surgery involve removing extra skin and tissue or the addition of tissue or implants. In either case, the appearance of your breasts may be altered to meet your desired cosmetic goals and lift your confidence. If you are ready to change your chest’s appearance, whether through enhancement or reduction, there are effective breast surgery options available at our Fort Worth office.
Dr. Steele offers many different surgical breast procedures to help you reach your desired results.
A breast augmentation procedure using silicone implants can enhance the size and appearance of your breasts. Whether you want to change the size of your breasts, fix asymmetry, or reverse changes due to pregnancy, breast augmentation may be the cosmetic solution for you.
Larger breasts can cause neck, back, and shoulder pain and limit physical mobility. Fortunately, Dr. Steele can help remedy these issues with a breast reduction operation. This procedure removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to decrease breast size and alleviate discomfort. Your new breasts are not also smaller, but more shapely and perkier as well.
Over time, breasts may sag due to aging, pregnancy, weight loss and gravity. The result is weakened skin that cannot support the weight of the breast. Additionally, many patients feel that they have more breast skin than breast tissue. A breast lift removes excess skin, tightens the surrounding breast tissue, and repositions the breast and nipples higher on the chest for a natural, rejuvenated appearance. If a breast lift alone cannot accomplish your desired look, implants may be incorporated into the procedure to get fuller, more youthful looking breasts. Implants would be placed under the muscle in combination with a breast lift surgery. Patients in Fort Worth may opt for a breast lift procedure if their breast appearance has changed due to age, weight change, or pregnancy.
Individuals who are dissatisfied with the appearance or size of their breasts are great candidates for breast surgery. Issues that may lead to the need for breast surgery include discomfort or back pain and irritation underneath the breast crease or on top of the shoulders from bra straps.
Even if someone does not experience physical discomfort, they may feel that their breast size is too large and still be a viable candidate. Whether you have healthy, fully developed breasts or have undergone a mastectomy and need reconstruction surgery to restore a natural chest appearance, Dr. Steele can help.
If you’re looking to alter the size and shape of your breasts through enhancement, possible solutions include implants, live tissue transfer, and excess skin removal while tightening breast tissue. Alternatively, the removal of excess skin, fat, and breast tissue may reduce breast size and discomfort caused by larger breasts.
Depending on your desired results and current health condition, various surgical options are available to enhance or reduce your breasts’ size and shape. Fort Worth breast surgery options include breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, breast lifts, and breast reduction. Whether you are unhappy with your breasts’ appearance because you consider them too small or too large, there may be a surgical solution for you at our Fort Worth office.
