People undergo breast surgery for many reasons. While some want to change the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts, others seek to reduce back and neck pain or reshape their chest and restore femininity after a mastectomy.
Dr. Matthew H. Steele has extensive experience performing plastic surgery and can help determine if breast surgery in Midlothian is right for you. Some of the procedures Dr. Steele performs at his accredited outpatient surgery center include:
Breast augmentation is popular in Midlothian among women seeking to enhance and improve the symmetry of their breasts. In this process, Dr. Steele inserts implants underneath the pectoralis muscle to increase the volume of your breast. The implant also fills out the form of your breasts, resulting in a bigger, fuller chest.
Some women choose to pair breast augmentation with another procedure, such as a breast lift or tummy tuck, to address multiple concerns at once. Dr. Steele can explain your options during an initial consultation and suggest which procedures might be a good fit for your unique goals.
Pregnancy, weight loss, and gravity can cause your breasts to sag over time, weakening the skin and leaving your breasts unable to support their weight. Patients often report feeling their breasts are covered in more fat and skin than breast tissue. With a breast lift (also known as a mastopexy), Dr. Steele removes extra skin, tightens your breast tissue, and repositions your breasts and nipples higher on your chest to give you a more youthful, natural look. While a breast lift will not make much difference in the size of your breasts, you can combine a lift with breast augmentation or reduction to get your desired results.
Since having larger breasts can cause pain in the neck, back, and shoulders, breast reduction surgery can be a great option for addressing these concerns. During this procedure, Dr. Steele removes excess fat, breast tissue, and skin to reduce the size of your breasts and relieve pain; you are left with smaller, better defined, perkier breasts and less discomfort.
People in Midlothian who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts are often great candidates for plastic surgery. Sagging breasts, asymmetry, and loose skin are extremely common, often coming with age, pregnancy, or weight loss. Many women who also deal with discomfort associated with their breasts, such as digging bra straps and chronic back pain, are also good candidates for plastic surgery.
Of course, every case is different, which is why it is important to meet with Dr. Steele to discuss your specific goals and expectations. He can explain your options and develop a personalized plan for you to have the appearance you desire. He can also assess your current health to ensure surgery is a safe and viable option.
Plastic surgery can be a great option for those looking to enhance their breasts, remove excess tissue, gain a more youthful look, or restructure their chest.
