Breast Enhancement Surgery to Refine Your Bust Line

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a highly individualistic procedure. Some women choose breast augmentation because they feel their breasts are too small, others view the procedure as an opportunity to achieve a more balanced, proportionate figure. New surgical techniques have made breast augmentation safer and more popular than ever before. Our Connecticut patients who are considering breast augmentation can now achieve natural looking results with less time spent in surgery and less discomfort.

Because every patient who visits our office in Fairfield County is unique, each breast augmentation candidate will receive individual consideration and personal attention during the consultation at our Connecticut practice. During breast augmentation consultations, we always take time to discuss expectations and goals prior to surgery. We take precise measurements to determine the optimal breast implant size and shape, and together with the patient, decide which surgical method is appropriate. Once a breast augmentation treatment plan is in place, we make the surgical experience as comfortable as possible.

Breast Implants

Once a woman has decided she wants a breast augmentation, she will have many choices to make that will affect the look of her breasts, the recovery time after surgery, and more. There are two types of breast implants used in breast augmentation surgery: saline and silicone. Saline implants comprise a silicone shell filled with saline, or salt water. Silicone implants comprise a silicone shell filled with silicone gel.

Before you undergo breast augmentation, Dr. Passaretti can help you determine which type of implant will give you the look and feel you want. He will also work with you to determine the size and shape you want to achieve, so that your implants will be the appropriate size for your body. By working with a skilled surgeon, you ensure that your implants will look natural when placed in your breasts.

Breast Lift

Breast lift is an ideal procedure for women whose breasts have begun to sag or lose their shape. During breast lift surgery, the breasts are raised to a more flattering position and loose, excess skin is trimmed away. Remaining skin is tightened and the nipples are lifted, making breasts appear full and more youthful. At our Connecticut practice, we recommend breast lift surgery for women whose breasts have begun to droop with age, women whose skin has been stretched by pregnancy, and women whose weight loss has resulted in a loss of volume in the breasts.

Breast lift surgery is not intended to enlarge breasts; rather, the procedure is designed to restore a more youthful shape. At our Connecticut practice, we can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery for women who are seeking larger breasts. Breast augmentation is particularly effective for adding volume to the upper part of the breast.

Breast Reduction

Oversized breasts can cause women of all ages to feel self-conscious about their bodies. For many of our patients, large breasts have a negative impact on their daily life. Simple activities like shopping for clothes or exercising can be a problem for full-breasted women. Heavy breasts also contribute to poor posture and can eventually cause physical problems, including back, shoulder, and neck pain.

Breast reduction surgery offers a solution for many of the cosmetic and medical problems associated with large, heavy breasts. During breast reduction surgery, excess skin and tissue is removed from the breasts via an incision made in the breast fold, beneath the nipple, or around the nipple. Breast tissue is then sculpted into a smaller, more flattering shape. Because breast reduction surgery often alleviates persistent neck and back pain, the procedure is sometimes covered by insurance.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction surgery can restore a woman's confidence in her femininity after a mastectomy. During mastectomy, a woman's breast or breasts are removed because of the presence of cancer or as a preventive measure. Breast reconstruction may involve the expansion or reconstruction of breast tissue in addition to implant placement.

Each woman's case is different, so it is important that she choose a breast surgeon who can customize her breast reconstruction according to her needs. Dr. Passaretti can help you understand the different methods of reconstruction and their respective recovery times and procedure specifics.
