Women who want to improve their breasts’ appearance can obtain a renewed sense of self with cosmetic breast surgery in Virginia. It is essential to understand the risks and benefits if you are considering cosmetic breast surgery, and Dr. Troy Pittman, a Board-certified plastic surgeon, can help answer any questions you may have about cosmetic breast surgery options. In consultation with Dr. Pittman and our dedicated office staff, you can determine what procedure best meet your needs. If you are looking for breast augmentation, reduction, lifts, or revision breast reconstruction, our team can provide you with personalized treatment options that are tailored to your specific body dimensions.
Depending on the procedure and the patient, recovery time and after-care instructions will vary. However, we will discuss what you should expect after breast surgery and provide information about medications, exercise suggestions, and incision care during a consultation.
Breast implants, or a fat transfer to the breast, are used in this procedure to increase breast size due to small breasts or to restore lost volume after a pregnancy or substantial weight loss. This can produce a more rounded shape and improve natural symmetry. Breast augmentation surgery involves placing breast implants behind breast or under muscle tissue, and the implants are filled with either a silicone gel or sterile water solution (saline). The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved both types of implants, and Dr. Pittman can help you decide which type of implant is best. This is the most common plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States.
A breast lift procedure (mastopexy) removes excess skin and tissue around the breasts, tightening the areas to make them more round and perky. Sometimes patients who have lost breast elasticity over time due to aging or breastfeeding may choose this procedure, which reshapes the breasts, improving both appearance and support. They can also be performed alongside an implant insertion.
Patients with large, oversized breasts can suffer from medical issues such as chronic back and neck pain, and a breast reduction procedure can help alleviate these issues. The surgery removes excess tissue and fat from the breasts, making them smaller and perkier. Breast reduction surgery is also available to men who suffer from a condition called gynecomastia, which can help those who have lost a considerable amount of weight or feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts.
For patients with uneven or different sized breasts, this type of surgery can help restore balance and symmetry. Dr. Pittman either reduces the larger breast’s size through a reduction procedure or augments the size of the smaller one. The goal is to offer you breast symmetry and a more pleasing appearance.
Cosmetic Breast surgery in Virginia does not have to be a one-time event. A revision procedure involves removing or replacing an original silicone or saline breast implant that has malfunctioned, been damaged, or is leaking. This can also be done if you are not satisfied with a previous procedure done by another surgeon. For breast cancer survivors or those who have had a mastectomy to one or both breasts, we offer the option to revise a reconstruction that occurred after your treatment.
You can also ask for a complete implant removal if you no longer feel the need for them.
If you want to enhance, change, or reduce your breasts’ appearance, you can trust in the knowledge, experience, and dedication of Dr. Troy Pittman, one of the best plastic surgeons according to Modern Luxury DC Magazine.
