Cosmetic surgery of the breast encompasses many varied procedures. Breasts can be enlarged with breast implants via breast augmentation, or reduced in size with breast reduction or a reduction mammoplasty. If you are happy with the volume, but not the shape of your breast, a breast lift, or mastopexy, may help by lifting and firming the breast. Even problems with the size and shape of the nipple and areola can be addressed via breast enhancement surgery.
I recently had the opportunity to discuss the many aspects of cosmetic breast surgery, on KRON’s Body Beautiful. A portion of the show is dedicated to viewer questions, which are answered live on the air. Below is an excerpt from my interview with the Bay Area’s News Station’s Vicki Liviakis, which includes several interesting viewer questions. Please note, the 800 number in the video was used exclusively as part of the live show. If you have questions, or would like to schedule a consultation appointment, please call (925) 943-6353, or use the contact form on the left side of this page.
This breast augmentation video includes answers to viewers questions about:
- When is it safe to replace breast implants to change size?
- Do breast implants need to be replaced at 10 years? (Also covered here: Routine breast implant replacement)
- What problems can occur with breast augmentation to sizes larger than a D-cup?
- Can breast size be matched to maintain proportions?
- Is it safe have elective cosmetic surgery with diabetes or other medical illnesses?
- Can breast implants really lift the breasts? (Click for additional information about Breast Augmentation Lift)
Finding the Right Breast Augmentation Surgeon
If you are considering breast augmentation, be certain to review the benefits, and the risks, with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like myself, as part of your breast augmentation consultation appointment. If you have developed problems with your breast implants, a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is the best first step toward finding relief.
