San Diego Cosmetic Breast Surgery
Cosmetic breast surgery can help to improve s woman’s self image and improve one’s confidence related to insecurities that many women have about this defining part of their anatomy. Issues can be due to the lack of breast development, breast asymmetry (one side larger or smaller than the other), problems related to a previous breast surgery, changes after pregnancy and breast feeding or even after significant weight loss. Since so many factors can contribute to the ultimate breast shape, it is of utmost importance to personalize each and every cosmetic breast surgery to the particular needs of the patient. San Diego plastic surgeon Vincent Marin offers cosmetic breast surgery to patients that would like to enhance the appearance of their figures.
Breast augmentation is the most frequently performed cosmetic surgical procedure in the US. Smaller breasted women are often well served with a breast augmentation using either saline or silicone implants. Implants can be placed above or below the muscle and Dr. Marin will help you decide which options are right for you.
A breast lift or mastopexy procedure is designed to help reposition breasts that have lost their youthful shape with age, changes related to pregnancy or significant weight loss. Since no breast implant is used, patients who choose this approach are usually happy with the volume of their breasts in a bra – this procedure can be effective for women who also would be happy with a small reduction in their cup size.
Breast Lift with Implant
An augmentation mastopexy or the combination of a lift and implant is designed to correct two of the most common issues that occur after pregnancy or weight loss – the amount of excess breast skin that results in a “droopy” appearance as well as the loss of breast tissue leaving the breasts looking “empty.” This is the operation that often provides our San Diego patients with the most dramatic cosmetic breast surgery results and the happiest patients.
Many women are born with large breasts or can have unwanted over-development of the breast tissue with weight gain. Large, heavy breasts can result in a number of associated problems such as back and/or neck pain, limitations on one’s physical abilities secondary to breast size and weight, shoulder grooving from bra straps and rashes may develop beneath the breast crease. A breast reduction or reduction mammaplasty can simultaneously solve many of these issues that have bothered many women for years.
Breast Implant Revision
Women who have undergone breast augmentation surgery in the past may desire a change in the implant type (saline or silicone), size or need revisionary surgery to correct problems that developed after their original procedure. Dr. Marin is experienced in all areas of cosmetic breast surgery and can help correct any of the problems related to malposition (implant in the wrong position), rupture, capsular contracture or a simple desire for a change in breast implant type or volume.
