Breast Reshaping

Introduction

Breast Reshaping Offers Women Renewed Satisfaction With Their Breasts Whatever the Circumstances

Although breast development begins around puberty, women experience a lot of changes in the bust area during pregnancy and after childbirth. The original shape, size and volume of the breasts may change after each pregnancy and also when women reach menopause. Often, the only way to restore shape, symmetry and volume to the breasts meaningfully is by undergoing plastic surgeries like breast reshaping and mastopexy.

Skilled plastic surgeons like Dr Ellis Choy can skilfully reshape the breast through a combination of procedures that include a breast lift, areolar repositioning and breast augmentation — surgically moulding the breasts so they look more balanced, well-contoured and attractive. Most importantly, these procedures help women express their femininity the way they’ve always dreamed. With breast reshaping, women can not only enjoy a renewed breast appearance but also increased confidence and self-esteem which permeates all aspects of their lives.

Reasons for Breast Reshaping

I have a lot of breast problems. Can breast reshaping really help me?

Many natural life events can lead to unwanted changes in a woman’s breasts — pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding being among the most common causes of these changes. However, other factors can also lead to a woman’s dissatisfaction with the appearance of her breasts, such as rapid weight loss or even breast cancer surgery. Breast reshaping is a wonderful and empowering tool in the hands of an experienced Specialist Plastic Surgeon that can help women regain the body which best expresses how they see themselves and wish to be seen. Most importantly, a restored breast appearance can give women back the confidence they deserve.

Breast Reshaping After Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the breasts undergo many changes. Breast tissue will enlarge as the breasts begin to produce milk for their growing child. This, in turn, will stretch breast skin leading to laxity for which there is often very little remedy except for surgery. Breast shape also frequently changes after glandular tissue shrinks, and the breasts return to a size much closer to their original one — but now with stretched skin and muscle tissue. As a result, the breast no longer enjoys the support it once did, and this can affect all aspects of a woman’s breast appearance afterward.

Breast reshaping performed by Dr Choy can relieve all of these symptoms. A breast lift will include skin excision and tightening of breast tissues, both of which will reduce sagging and loose skin and help restore the shape and orientation of the breasts. Also, implants can be included to return the volume of the breast which had been lost. These procedures can give women a very attractive breast presentation that, most importantly, reflects each woman’s true spirit, allowing her to enjoy her personal journey and her body again.

Breast Reshaping After Weight Loss

Breasts undergo many changes following weight loss. They lose fatty tissue and can look and feel deflated. Even the nipples and areola can become distorted and begin to sag. They can lose their firm circular shape and start hanging downwards and outwards. There is a considerable loss of breast projection coupled with sagging as well. Further, these changes occur independently on each breast, so one side may appear flatter or lower than the other, resulting in significantly asymmetrical or disproportionate breasts and another cause of concern.

Breast reshaping, however, improves these issues. It can aesthetically contour the breast, increase volume and eliminate sagging. Dr Choy may either tighten or remove excess breast tissue or restore volume with the use of implants or fat grafts taken from the upper abdomen, chest or upper back. The result will be a breast which much more closely resembles the breast before changes in weight occurred — natural looking, youthful, healthy and attractive. The procedure can complete the look that each woman has fought so hard to achieve and give her the sense of accomplishment that all her efforts deserve.

Breast Reshaping Options

My breasts are unique. I don’t want to look like everyone else, and I don’t want a cookie-cutter operation. Can surgery give me breasts that reflect me?

Dr Choy offers his patients many procedures which share the ultimate goal of reshaping the breast to reduce or eliminate unwanted issues and help a woman express her femininity, her individuality and her confidence — the way she wants it to be expressed. Treatments can be performed individually or together and are highly-customisable depending on a woman’s individual circumstances, the issues she wants to address and the final results she wishes to obtain.

The popularity of breast lift procedures has grown worldwide. It’s often a cosmetic surgery of choice because it restores the breast’s youthful shape and volume. It doesn’t generally involve the insertion of implants, but patients can also choose to undergo breast augmentation surgery if they want to make their breasts look and feel fuller as well as lifted up.

During the procedure, Dr Choy makes a few incisions to lift and reshape underlying breast tissue. Depending on the patient’s requirements, he may also reposition the nipple and areola and trim enlarged areolas so the breasts look perfectly proportionate. Once the breasts are reshaped, and excess skin is excised, the incisions are carefully sutured together. A breast lift leaves you with noticeably firmer and more youthful looking breasts. It reverses the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding and the toll it takes on your body.

Breast Lift Without Implants

A breast lift without implants augments only the orientation of the breasts, not their size, making it a good procedure for women who are happy with their current breast volume. In a breast lift procedure, Dr Choy will excise loose skin, tighten underlying breast tissues, which may include muscle, and reposition the areolar complex so that it meets a woman’s expectation about how her breasts should look, enhancing her overall self-esteem and outlook on life. The procedure, even without implants, can be transformative, remedying many troubling concerns with highly-satisfying results.

Breast Lift With Implants

Women can also have a breast lift with a breast augmentation which builds on the benefits of a lift by improving the volume and shape of the breast through the insertion of an implant. An implant is carefully selected with Dr Choy’s advice that will best compliment a woman’s frame, lifestyle and view of herself. A breast lift and breast augmentation can and are often performed simultaneously as a single surgery, offering women maximum results, convenience and satisfaction.

Breast Reduction

Those with very large and displaced breasts can also use the latest techniques in breast reduction surgery to get perkier breasts that are sized to their satisfaction. This procedure takes care of the excess weight and discomfort associated with larger breasts. It can also make uneven breasts look more even. The surgery aims to alleviate not just the physical symptoms associated with excessively large breasts such as back pain, but also the psychological impact this can have. Beyond improving the appearance of the bustline, most patients often feel more comfortable in their own skin as well, and freer to pursue interests such as sports.

There are various techniques used to remove breast tissue and decrease the size of the breast. Dr Choy will choose a method only after taking the patient’s breast size and shape and other factors, like the need for breastfeeding, into consideration. Common procedures include an anchor incision, a vertical incision, a free nipple graft and liposuction. Liposuction effectively removes excess fat from the breast area and helps to contour the shape of the bust. However, it may only be ideal for certain candidates. The procedure takes two to three hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
