The question of how long to wait to have a breast augmentation revision depends on the reason you are seeking the procedure.
Generally speaking, yes: a breast lift is a necessary step of the breast reduction process. Due to the effects of gravity over time, the skin of overly-large breasts begins to sag more rapidly than smaller breasts. While sagging may not be as evident while breasts are at their largest, it becomes more pronounced once the necessary breast tissue has been removed.
If you live with an overly-large bust, breast reduction surgery can help you feel as though – quite literally – a weight has been lifted from your chest. Medically referred to as breast mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery has one of the highest patient-satisfaction ratings of any plastic surgery procedure.
Breast reduction surgery is one of the most highly rated plastic surgery procedures for patient satisfaction. Not only can breast reduction improve the balance and proportions of your figure, but the health benefits of the procedure can improve you posture, comfort, and ability to lead an active lifestyle.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed in the country. Of the hundreds of thousands of women who undergo the procedure every year, the overwhelming majority love their results and experience no complications.
Breast implant removal, known as explant surgery, is performed on patients who experience a problem with their breast implants, or simply prefer to be implant-free. If you would like to remove your breast implants for medical, aesthetic, or personal reasons, explant surgery can help you achieve your goals.
While complications are rare when breast augmentation is performed by a highly skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon, they do occur on occasion. One of the less common complications is called a double bubble.
Double bubble occurs when folds appear beneath the breasts due to the implant shifting positions following surgery. This creates an unnatural indentation across the bottom of the breast. It is most visible when your arms are raised above your head, and it results in a “four-beast” appearance.
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes enlarged male breast tissue, and it is much more common than most people realize. Over 50% of males will develop gynecomastia at some point in their lives. If enlarged breast tissue causes you self-consciousness, Dr. Bogue can perform male breast reduction to restore a more masculine appearance.
