It’s a sensitive subject. You have exercised your body into shape, and finally reached that target jean size. But there is one thing holding you back from the picture you have always had of yourself, and it’s something that a woman can’t do totally on her own. The breasts are an area that many of us associate with our most feminine, sensual selves. If you have a clear picture of a you with a perkier profile, or a curvier silhouette, you can come to Dr. Reeder and discuss how that vision can become a reality.
Dr. Reeder has performed thousands of breast lifts, reductions, and augmentations in his career, and mentored surgeons learning these techniques. So whether you feel over gifted and self-conscious, whether you think weight loss or gravity have taken a toll, or whether you think you would be more you with a little more, come in for a consultation. Dr. Reeder is also extremely accomplished at reconstruction after mastectomy.
Breast Augmentation Overview
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enlarge a woman’s breasts. This procedure can help to make the breasts more proportionate to the rest of the body, it can even out breasts which are different in size or shape, and it can enlarge and reshape breasts which have lost their fullness or shape due to weight loss, pregnancy, breast feeding, or age. Breast augmentation can also be used for reconstructive purposes on patients who have undergone mastectomy or on those with a congenital breast deformity.
The best candidate for breast augmentation is a woman over the age of 18 who is unhappy with her breast size or shape and looking to alter their appearance. Patients must also be psychologically stable and physically healthy and have realistic expectations. Breast augmentation can enhance the look of the breasts and, as with many cosmetic surgery, it often has the added benefit of increasing one’s self confidence.
Breast Reconstruction Overview
Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today. New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast. Frequently, reconstruction is possible immediately following breast removal (mastectomy), so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all.
But bear in mind, post-mastectomy breast reconstruction is not a simple procedure. There are often many options to consider, Dr. Reeder will help you explore these options, to find what’s best for you.
Breast Reduction Overview
While many women imagine large breasts are enviable, breasts that are too large for your body can be aesthetically displeasing as well as very uncomfortable. Back problems are just one of the physical discomforts that can accompany overly large breasts. Apart from these, just finding clothes that fit — much less flatter — can simply be a nightmare.
With a breast reduction procedure Dr. Reeder will do much more than reduce the volume of your breasts. The goal is breasts that are shapely, proportional and symmetrical today, and as you grow older. Because large breasts can affect your health in so many ways, breast reduction may be covered by some health insurance plans. Our office will work with you to submit all appropriate insurance forms for reimbursement if your procedure is covered.
Breast Revision Overview
Breast augmentation procedures have advanced to the point where every woman can achieve the full and shapely breasts she’s always wanted. With advances in techniques, more and more women are undergoing this procedure. Augmentation almost always results in a successful result, but problems can occur on occasion. However, in the hands of an experienced surgeon like Dr. Reeder, it’s possible to correct previous surgical instances and achieve the beautiful, healthy breasts you were seeking in the first place.
