Which Type of Breast Surgery is Right for You?
As a woman, your breasts take center stage every day. They affect the shape of your body in virtually any outfit you put on. So, given their prominent position, doesn’t it make sense that you should be both comfortable and happy with not only how they look, but also how they feel?
Dr. Niki Christopoulos performs a variety of Chicago breast augmentation surgeries that help women feel better about the shape of their physique. Below are the three main types of breast surgery that Dr. Christopoulos performs for her patients:
A breast augmentation is any procedure that uses an implant to improve the shape and size of the breast. Women choose this procedure for a wide host of reasons. Perhaps breastfeeding has left your breasts less full than they once were. Maybe you’ve always longed for a more feminine silhouette. Or perhaps one of your breasts is larger than the other, and you’d simply like to even them out. Whatever your reason, a breast augmentation can help you feel more at peace with your body and also give you a boost of confidence.
A breast lift is a simple way to reverse time. Mothers and mature women in particular may notice that their breasts aren’t as perky or firm as they used to be. With a breast lift, also known as mastopexy, you can remove excess skin and tighten the surrounding tissue to give your breasts an improved shape and feel without adding implants. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, since 2000, the number of breast lifts performed in America has gone up by 70%. It’s a popular option because it allows women to reclaim the bodies they once had.
Excessively large breasts can cause neck and back problems that result in persistent pain, and some women with large breasts may feel like their chest size attracts unwanted attention. If, for whatever reason, you’d like to reduce the size of your breasts, that can be done through breast reduction surgery. This surgery sometimes involves liposuction to remove excess fatty tissue from the breast. During this procedure, Dr. Christopoulos will remove excess fat and breast tissue while reducing the size of your areola and repositioning it to give you a smaller, more shapely and uplifted breast.
