Breast Reconstruction

The Many Reasons for a Breast Reconstruction.

Breast reconstruction can deliver varying amounts of change in the size and shape of a woman's breast. The simplest change comes from the procedure that professionals call a mastopexy. A mastopexy is a breast lift.

When a surgeon performs a breast lift, he does not leave his female patient with highly visible scars on her breasts. The performance of a breast lift calls for removal and replacement of the breast nipples. If the surgeon fails to use proper care, the replaced nipples could lack the alignment normally achieved in nature.

Breast Implants. Natrelle breast augmentation features the first customized breast implants on the market. Find your fit today!

A different procedure, one called a mammoplasty, requires the cutting of a larger amount of breast tissue. Mammoplasty is the technical name for a breast augmentation. During a breast augmentation, the surgeon cuts around the woman's areola and down to the bottom of her breast.

After making that large incision, the surgeon can remove fat and other connective tissue from the breast. The breast augmentation is often a breast reduction. Women have many different reasons for requesting a breast reduction.

A woman with very large breasts might complain about back pain, or she might have chaffing on the skin under her large breast. On occasion, a woman has such large breasts that she finds "grooves" forming on he shoulders. Those "grooves" form where her bra strap has cut into her skin.

The above paragraphs point to ways that a breast augmentation can improve a woman's health. A breast augmentation can also deliver to a female patient a greater feeling of self-confidence. A breast augmentation can give a woman a pleasing and eye-catching cleavage.

A breast augmentation can provide a woman with more noticeable changes than a breast lift. A breast lift can not guarantee the possession of perkier breasts. A breast lift can not give a woman more cleavage. Those changes can be achieved when a woman is daring enough to try a breast augmentation.

A more dramatic type of breast reconstruction is the breast implant. A woman who has needed surgical treatment for breast cancer might speak with her doctor about getting a breast implant.

During a breast implant, a surgeon places a synthetic padding under the skin, skin that had covered an area where the breast tumor had to be surgically removed. Plastic surgeons now tell their patients not to worry about the chemical nature of that padding.

All of the procedures mentioned in the foregoing paragraphs require some type of surgery. For that reason, they all introduce the female patient to a certain degree of risk. Surgery opens the skin, the natural protection against micro-organisms. Surgery always carries with it the possibility of infection.

All of the above procedures produce at least some scarring. In cases where the scars are less obvious, the skills of the surgeon are greatly tested. If a surgeon fails to provide a woman with two natural-looking breasts, then she has only two choices.

She must either live with the results of the breast reconstruction, or she must agree to let a surgeon perform further breast reconstruction.
