Breast Plastic Surgery Procedures Conveniently located to serve St. Louis
You can choose from several types of breast plastic surgery procedures in St. Louis if you want to change how your breasts look. These include breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast revision. Knowing what each procedure entails can help you decide which option is right for you.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in America. People often do it to increase their bust size and projection or to correct size asymmetries.
Breast augmentation takes 1-2 hours under general anesthesia. Dr. Rottler or Dr. Hulsey will make an incision around the nipple, under the breast, or in the armpit, as agreed upon during the consultation, then insert the implant through it. He will close the incision using sutures.
A breast lift is performed to raise sagging breasts, improve their shape and firmness, and address shape asymmetries.
During a breast lift, the type of incision is determined during consultation. The incisions are made, excess skin is removed around the areola and nipple to lift the breast, and the nipple and areola are raised to a new location. The remaining skin is then tightened, and incisions are closed with sutures.
Breast reduction is used to reduce the size of excessively large breasts that often leave people with neck and back pain, bra strap soreness, inflammation under the breast folds, and low self-esteem.
During Breast reduction, Dr. Rottler or Dr. Hulsey will create the chosen incision based on the amount of tissue being removed. These will allow him to reduce excess skin, glandular tissue, and fat. The nipple and areola may be repositioned and resized.
Breast revision is an option for women who are not happy with the results of earlier breast surgery. It can correct medical and/or cosmetic issues like rippling and capsular contracture.
During breast revision in St. Louis, Dr. Rottler or Dr. Hulsey may alter the scar-tissue capsule around the implant, support the breasts with Strattice Reconstructive Tissue Matrix to keep the implants in their proper place, or remove and replace the implants entirely.
The best candidates for breast plastic surgery procedures vary based on the specific procedure. Generally, candidates should be in sound health, should not be pregnant or lactating, and should have realistic expectations for the procedure.
