Breast augmentation, also known as breast enlargement or breast enhancement, is a surgical procedure employed at Dr. Antonetti's cosmetic surgery practice in Dallas used to enhance the size of the breasts. Women may choose breast augmentation for a number of reasons pertaining to their appearance or self-esteem. They may want to increase their breast size in order to create curves or a more attractive silhouette. They may wish to balance the appearance of differently sized breasts. Or they may hope to restore size to breasts that have lost volume after pregnancy, breast-feeding, or weight loss. Whatever the reason, breast augmentation is a popular and generally safe option for women of various ages. Breast augmentation is a delicate procedure requiring skill and experience. Electing to have your breast augmentation performed at Dr. Antonetti's Dallas practice is a good decision. Dr. Antonetti has the experience and aesthetic know how to help you achieve the best results for your individual case. There are several options available when it comes to breast augmentation surgical technique. Dr. Antonetti can help you choose the one that is best for you based on your physiology and goals. In most cases at our Dallas practice, incisions for breast augmentation can be subtly placed around the areola (the dark area around the nipple) and in the crease of the breast.
Breast lift, or mastopexy, can help give a woman's breasts a more youthful, attractive appearance. Aging can cause the breasts to droop and flatten, making them look "deflated." Women who seek breast lift enhancement through Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Antonetti often report feeling self-conscious about the shape and lack of volume their breasts have. Breast lift enhancement gives these women better breast shape and an increased level of satisfaction with their appearance. Breast lift enhancement is often combined with the placement of implants (breast augmentation) at our Dallas practice. Implants add volume and shape, making breasts larger and firmer. Whether or not implants are used, the goal of breast lift enhancement is to bring the breasts to a more youthful, natural-looking position.
Breast reconstruction can help women who have had to undergo a mastectomy (breast removal). Being able to have a natural-looking replacement breast can help these women feel less self-conscious after mastectomy. This procedure can provide a measure of comfort to those who have suffered from breast cancer and so proves to be especially meaningful for both surgeon and patient. More than one breast reconstruction technique exists. Surgery can be performed using a saline breast implant or using the patients own tissue. Reconstruction can be done either at the same time as the mastectomy or later on. The timing and technique are determined on a case-by-case basis by Dr. Antonetti and your oncologist.
Large breasts often pose a number of complications that can be difficult to live with. Women with large breasts often suffer from back, neck, and shoulder pain. For some women, these conditions become even more painful with prolonged periods of sitting or standing. In addition, women with large breasts may experience skin irritation beneath the breasts or on the shoulders where the bra straps cut in. Breast reduction, performed by Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Antonetti, can help to reduce or eliminate these medical side effects of large breasts. Breast reduction can offer women other benefits as well. For those whose physical activity is limited because of breast size, surgery can bring new opportunities to be active and participate in sports. In addition, women may find that they are able to wear a wider variety of clothing styles. Many breast reduction patients of our Dallas practice find that they are happier with their appearance and feel more self-confident after surgery.Breast reduction surgery at our Dallas facility generally involves the removal of breast tissue, fat, and excess skin. The nipple and areola are usually moved higher and may be reduced in size if necessary.
