Performing Breast Procedures for Boston and New England
Interested in undergoing a breast procedure but confused about which option is best for your goals? At Cosmetic Surgery Experts, Dr. Volpe regularly performs a variety of breast procedures in Boston, including breast augmentations, breast lifts, and breast reduction surgery.
Breast augmentation, or mammaplasty, is a procedure performed to add more volume to the breasts. This procedure is recommended to patients who want to increase their breast size out of aesthetic preference, after pregnancy, or after losing significant weight. During the consultation, breast augmentation patients will be asked about their goals to determine the most suitable implant for the procedure.
Breast Implant Revision
After a breast augmentation, people may experience concerns like asymmetrical breasts or capsular contracture. Breast implant revision can be performed to correct these issues and help people feel satisfied with their breast augmentation results.
The process of aging can lead to sagging breasts, which can be corrected with a breast lift. In a breast lift procedure, the loose skin is lifted and the excess is removed to restore contour and shape. This creates a more youthful appearance. The type of lift performed will depend on the amount of tissue to be removed.
Large breasts may cause neck, shoulder, or back pain for some women. It can also limit physical activities like sports. These concerns can be improved with a breast reduction procedure. This surgery removes excess glandular breast tissue, fat, and/or skin to make the breasts lighter.
Male Breast Reduction
Male breast reduction is performed for patients with gynecomastia that cannot be reduced through exercise or other non-surgical methods. Gynecomastia is a medical condition where oversized male breast tissue is present, creating the appearance of male breasts. This is common and may cause distress or insecurity. Undergoing the procedure can help patients achieve flatter and more masculine chest contours.
Nipple repair can improve the nipples’ overall appearance after breastfeeding or nursing. Many techniques are available to address inverted nipples, reduce areola and nipple size, and correct asymmetries.
Silicone vs. Saline Breast Implants
Silicone and saline are the common choices for breast implants. Both types of implants are FDA-approved and have been seen to provide excellent results. Saline implants will be recommended for patients who are at least 18 years old. Silicone can be offered to patients who are at least 22 years old. Each type has its pros and cons, which can be discussed during your consultation.
During the consultation, Dr. Volpe will ask patients about their appearance concerns, complete medical history, and lifestyle habits. This information will help Dr. Volpe plan and prepare the best procedure for their needs. Dr. Volpe will then go over the details of the selected breast procedure.
