Women are often unhappy with the appearance of their breasts, whether they are small, asymmetrical, sagging, or too large. In order to achieve a more desirable breast contour, many individuals turn to cosmetic plastic surgery. At the practice of Dr. Katzen, patients may anticipate a caring and professional environment, as well as natural-looking results.
Some of the procedures available include:
Dr. Katzen often uses silicone gel filled breast implants to add volume to the breasts. Incisions can be made under the breast crease, around the areola, or through the armpit. The implants are then placed either above or beneath the muscle. Saline breast implants may also be used for breast augmentation.
After massive weight loss, pregnancy, and/or aging, patients find that their breasts have lost elasticity and are now experiencing severe sagging. Removal of excess skin and fat, as well as repositioning the areola and lifting the breast to a more youthful appearance, may be anticipated.
Women who have overly large breasts often suffer from neck, shoulder, and/or back pain. Dr. Katzen can remove excess fat, skin, and tissue, while sculpting the breasts to a more aesthetically pleasing contour.
Breast Implant Revision
Unfortunately, there are some incidents in which there are complications or unsatisfactory results after breast enhancement surgery. Patients who experience implant rupture, shifting, or capsular contracture may undergo a revision surgery.
Based on their particular situation and procedure chosen, patients may be able to have their procedure covered by insurance. Typically, individuals who have experienced massive weight loss qualify to have their insurance pay for a breast lift and/or reduction.
